Do you love to travel? Although not all of us have plans to visit tropical and exotic places, Phytomer and Phytoceane offer everyone spa style products that channel interesting places with some indulgent scents and formulas. Enjoy the beauty and excitement of Costa Rica with a Phytocdeame Moisturizing Body Water. Travel to the Spice Island of Zanzibar with Phytoceane’s Shower Gel and Milky Body Cream. Wash away your cares, along with dry skin with Phytomer’s exfoliating Seaweed Soap.
Semi-isolated and exotic, Zanzibar is part of Tanzania in East Africa and is known as part of the “Spice Islands.” The reason is that Zanzibar is known for spices such as cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and black pepper.
Phytoceane brings a bit of Zanzibar to your daily routine with two indulgent products: Zanzibar Shower Gel ($30) and Zanzibar Milky Body Cream ($42.50).
You might think you’re actually swimming in the clear waters of a tranquil lagoon when you use the Zanzibar Shower Gel and Milky Body Cream. Both have notes of vanilla, coconut and orange blossom, mandarin, and exotic floral notes (you can really smell those tropical florals).
The azure-tinted flip-top tubes with white tops dispense either the richly scented cleanser that also softens your skin with virgin coconut oil and Jania (super-moisturizing marine coral). or the Milky Body Cream.
The scent lingers on your skin like the memory of an island getaway, but just for a few minutes so you can add your favorite fragrance when you want to. The lightweight Milky Body Cream is a treat, especially after a hot day or a hard day at work!
Costa Rica Costa Rica is a rainforested Central American country with many diverse opportunities for travel, from natural wonders and eco-tourism to tropical beaches and lively culture. Take a tropical break with Phytoceane Costa Rica Moisturizing Body Water ($48).
Hydration and a light fresh scent are yours when you spray the Phytoceane Moisturizing Body Water on your skin. The notes are peach, apple, melon, pineapple with jasmine, cedar and musk. It’s a cheerful, slightly fruity, invigorating fragrance that just makes you feel happy.
Inside the slim glass bottle festooned with green and yellow palm fronds, you will find hydrating Jania and energizing Goyave (extract of guava tropical fruit). You can spray this any time, and anywhere to see immediate hydration of your skin, even if it’s really really dry. Phytoceane suggests using it right after bathing to awaken the skin, but I think this fresh scent is a real mood lifter during the day, too.
Seaweed can be found almost everywhere in the world, but the Chandrus Crispus (red algae) aka “Irish Moss” is a red algae that grows with gusto along the rocky parts of the Atlantic coast of Europe and North America.
Phytomer Seaweed Soap ($24.50) is a big, round, 5.2 oz. hard-milled exfoliating soap that has won hearts for a long time because it feels so good on your skin.
Algae don’t really have a scent, but the soap smells so fresh and energizing, even the men in your life will want to use it. It’s not wimpy exfoliation but it’s not irritating to your skin, either.
The key ingredients are red algae to stimulate microcirculation; Glycerin to smooth and moisturize, Palm Kernel Oil to nourish, and Lithothamne (red algae) to help slough off those dead dry skin cells.
All of the products would make fabulous weekend host/hostess gifts now. and birthday gifts for your “armchair” traveling friends both male and female. You can find Phytomer and Phytoceane at https://www.lespausa.com/
