I’m still in Winter mode although it’s technically Spring. Here are some of my favorites this month. Inglot palette: I went to Inglot at the beginning of March and put together this little palette that I’ve worn most of the month.

I use this hydrating one in the morning which contains Lavender Oil, Geranium Flower Oil, Rosemary Leaf Oil, Cypress Oil, and Thyme Oil. Buy from Dermstore here with free
Badger makes all natural and organic products for the home and body. I love their little balm tins. This sleepy time balm is made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Beeswax, Bergamot, Lavender, Rosemary, Ginger and Balsam Fir. I like to rub a little on my lips and pulse points before my head hits the pillow. Check out their other balm formulations and the entire range here. Badger Balm

I picked up several things that I remember from my childhood and others that looked interesting to try. Pinaud Clubman Talc: This is sold as a man’s talc but I loved the men’s cologne scent.
