What is Pour le Mieux Bath &Body Essentials?

 

PLM_Button 
 
"It looks like the lab of a mad scientist in here!" is the typical remark my teens make when they venture into the kitchen when I am working.
  
  
  
  
Q: What is Pour le Mieux Bath & Body Essentials?
A: Pour le Mieux Bath & Body Essentials is a small home-based bath and body products business.  We make handmade essentials for both men and women, and a few products for your home.  By creating small batches, we are better able to control quality, and provide fresher products. 
  
As a child, I suffered from various bouts of eczema, which was passed down to my son.  As an adult, I learned that other family members also suffered from eczema or dry skin.  This spurred me to do something about it that didn't involve topical steroids or pharmaceuticals.   
  
Q: What was your first product and why?
A: My first product was a body powder I made in May 2007 for my daughter's baby shower.  I wanted something unique and special that really represented that first grandchild.  Attractive packaging, witty labeling, a custom scent, and named after my soon to be born granddaughter, "Cadence."  I was pleasantly surprised that the shower attendees loved the favors and wanted extras to take home!
  
Q: How did you get started?
A: It started officially when a fellow crafter asked me in July 2007 to make soap at an upcoming holiday boutique.  At the time I had never made any, but she assured me it was a piece of cake.  I had always been intrigued by the soaps I purchased from a friend, and today she is one of my Soapy Godmothers.  For almost four months I studied and researched the art of soap making and made my first batches of "Melt & Pour" (MP) soaps for the boutique.  All in all it was a lot of fun, and I was ready to hit the road running with a business that provides natural bath and body products.
  
In January 2008, I received my certificate of completion for both "Cold Process" (CP) and "Hot Process" (HP) Soap Making.  I also took other course for making bath and body products, and the rest is history.
  
Donned in my goggles, gloves, and face mask, the Pour le Mieux Mad Scientist is back at it!!

Your Spa at Home: The Glowing Honey Facial

 

 

honey jarHoney all by itself is one of nature's beauty serums, so you won't have to go very far for this spa-at-home treatment.

For a great basic moisturizer, you'll need the following:

*  Natural, Raw Honey

*  Facial or basting brush

*  A warm washcloth

*  A cool washcloth

*  2 cucumber slices, optional

 Directions:

  1. Clean your face thoroughly using your regular regimen.
  2. Drape a warm washcloth over your face for a few minutes to open up your pores.  Remove and set aside.
  3. Using your facial brush, or a bristle basting brush, apply an even layer of honey over your entire face avoiding your eyes, and apply on your upper neck area.
  4. The honey should remain on your face for 15-25 minutes.  During this time, you can apply the cucumber slices over your eyes, or relax by reading a book.  If you apply a heavier layer of honey, have a towel handy or draped around your neck and chest to catch any drips.
  5. Remove the honey with warm water.
  6. Drape a cool washcloth over your face for a few minutes to close your pores.

Repeat weekly to moisturize your face.

By nature, honey has a tendency to warm the skin.  If you have sensitive skin or are allergic to bee pollen, consult your medical professional before using.

If you're thinking, "is that all?", rest assured.  We will feature more complicated honey masks and facials in future issues.

Bleu for Men

 

Bleu for MenWho said, "men don't like pampering?"

 

They may not be the first to admit it, but now you know why your Mango Madness Shower Gel is disappearing so quickly.  Men enjoy pampering as much as women, some more than others.  For this Father's Day, watch out for our June issue where we focus on the Bleu for Men line and what you can do to honor the fathers in your life. 

 

Pampering doesn't have to be expensive, but memorable. 
Pour le Mieux.  Remembering you.
