I am a spoiled woman in some ways. I drink only fresh ground organic coffee made with filtered water. I bathe with preferably home made soaps that have little or no animal products in it. I use Aveda shampoo and conditioner. And, after the shower, there is the lathering on of body creams.
I have tried many creams. Larry periodically buys me Christian Dior scented lotions, but they cost a small fortune. I sometimes buy unscented Aveda lotion and add oils to it. But the BEST (and I have tested a lot), are Lorna's homemade lotions (and soaps, and shampoos etc.)
At nearing 50, my skin is thirsty for a very rich moisturizer for both my face and body. I have used her face cream, and all of her body creams. Each one is more decadent than the next: the Classic with lavendar, tangerine, patchouli and rosewood, the Gardenia cream, and the Lavendar and Sandlewood Cream.
I have been going to our local farmer's market where I had been buying her products for the past few years. This year she has not been there. :( BUT when I was on Broadway and 112th, in NYC, I entered this little boutique (which is very very cool...found a great skirt by TRIBAL which I fell in love with and bought) and found that they carried Lorna's creams.
I immediately bought the last jar of cream that was there, and have been looking for every excuse to lavish my body with it. I rubbed on some Gardenia cream hours ago, and my skin still carries the scent.
Visit Lorna's website I highly recommend the face cream, the body creams, and the soaps. Made in the heart of the Catskill Mountains of NY with spring water.
And, by the way, after I get the cream on, I need nothing else. My day is complete.
