Love Yourself for February

Sachajuan intensive repair conditioner and Verso day cream

For this Love Yourself beauty event in February, I selected products from the following lines at Barney’s New York: haircare from Sachajuan, skincare from Verso, body care from Cowshed, and cosmetics from Rodin Olio Lusso.  Since I’ve been washing and conditioning with the Ultra Rich Collection of shampoo and conditioner from Oribe, I’m opting for a fresh set of shampoo and conditioner from Sachajuan, a luxe haircare line from Stockholm.

Oddly enough, most of the products and lines I selected for this beauty event come from a country in Europe, either Sweden or the United Kingdom. Verso Skincare and Sachajuan come from Stockholm, Sweden and Cowshed comes from the United Kingdom. Sachajuan produces Intensive Repair Shampoo and Intensive Repair Conditioner for dry or distressed hair. It’s good to condition and hydrate intensively for the winter time period, even if you have healthy hair.

Sachajuan also comes with a deluxe Hair Repair treatment for the Vincent Logo beauty gift that compliments the shampoo and conditioner. Only the Rahua shampoo and conditioner packets stand apart from this lovely set of Stockholm-based haircare. From Verso, I tested out the day cream in the Love Yourself beauty event a few months ago and selected this Verso Day Cream for the February event this time. Light-weight. Hydration. Subtly emollient.

Wild Cow invigorating body lotion, shower gel, lip balm by Cowshed

Cowshed produces body lotions and body washes similar to Redflower, and so I selected the Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion and Wild Cow Invigorating Body Wash. Unique scent, kind of floral, fruity, and lightly exotic all in combination. Even though this beauty gift also comes with a foaming shower gel, it’s still lovely to have a body wash also for bubble baths! Along with the body products, Cowshed Lippy Cow natural lip balm comes infused with essential oils of sweet orange, rose geranium, and ylang ylang.

Comparing the Cowshed lip balm to the Malin + Goetz lip moisturizer from the previous Love Yourself event and also found in this beauty gift, this lippy cow balm feels softer, more natural, and with more texture than the former. It consists of a blend of essential oils, and Shea butter, seed oils, and coconut oil that enhances the texture of this balm. Lippy Cow feels like a balm you could see in stick or tub form, only this one comes out in a tube for simple application. Onto the Rodin Olio Lusso lip balm!
