New Line Discovery - Angel Minaro

You know me, I love discovering a new line! The latest is ANGEL MINARO and because the creator has a pharmaceutical background, she understands the science of putting together the formulas in each product. Each is handmade and she also makes them in small batches to maintain their freshness.


The other day I tweeted how much I was loving the Romance Ultra Nourishing and Firming Body Lotion ($19/8oz). The scent is just amazing and it’s like nothing else out there really. It’s like a combo of rose, almond and something else I can’t quite put my finger on. Maybe the fruit extracts? All I know is I can’t stop smelling my hands when I put this on. Such a great quality cream.

It’s very concentrated and even though it contains nourishing oils, they are not runny inside the container. No slipping in the tub!

It has an overall smell of a cake or some bakery product, which I think is the acai inside. Not a total downer but just not my preference in terms of scent.

So the actual scrub gets a huge thumbs up and the scent a thumbs down.
