For the Girls

About a month ago I was sent samples of beauty products for the skin. The products contained grape extracts from different varieties of grapes commonly used for the production of wine. Before anybody says anything I am not a regular user of beauty products (: I don't need them :), but my wife Shirley and daughter Pam do use them.
After a couple of weeks I asked them what they thought of the product. Shirley liked them and Pam just raved about them. Pam's favorite was the Cabernet salt scrub and the Chardonnay lotion, but she also liked the Chardonnay body butter.

On the nose, the aromas of pear and honey and a hint of Chardonnay were exquisite in both the lotion and the body butter.

On the skin, the salt scrub gave a feeling of deep cleaning and the lotion was very thick and non-greasy as was the body butter.

The finish left you feeling soft and luxurious.

I was very surprised by Pam's reaction. She travels the world with her job at Syracuse University and has amassed a small collection of skin products. It seems that there is always something new and always something different. She has already reminded me that she will soon be out of two of the Wine Country Naturals and would like me to order more.

Oh wow. Those sound wonderful. I'm going to have to check it out. A Chardonnay body butter? Sounds fantastic. They would also make a very unique gift. Thanks for the info.

That's really cool!

It's amazing how many things can be made with/from wine... it's even more fascinating to hear just how many of them are so great!

Great post, as always!
Reading this reminded me of the Kobe Wine Soap advert I saw the other day. You inspired me to blog about it - with a link back to whywineblog of course :)

Got the same samples, and my wife is really digging the body scrub.
