MOR Cosmetic's Review - 2013 Valentine Day Gift Guide

Hello to all my gorgeous Fashion Bugs!  As you all know it is February and romance is in the air! Literally it is in the air with the amazing scents coming from the fabulous bath & body products I have here from MOR Cosmetics! As you all probably know, fragrances can be an aphrodisiac for romance and love, among other things which one reason Aromatherapy is so popular today. That combined with the sweet, romantic packaging of their products is why MOR Cosmetics made it into my 2013 Valentine Day Gift Guide!

MOR Cosmetics was established in 2001 by Dianna Burmas and  Deon St. Mor, today MOR continually strives to be the pioneering creator of bath, body, and lifestyle products with distinctive ranges admired globally by consumers and the beauty industry alike with a cult following.

The philosophy behind MOR is to provide a personalized sensory journey, where an ordinary everyday practice tuns into a beautiful daily pampering ritual. With MOR, you will experience and ravel in the awakening of your senses with the blending of old time ingredients, uniquely selected fragrances and luxuriously rich creations. Each collection is inspired by the stories of ancient civilizations, by-gone eras, travel, art, and cuisine, allowing the creation of a unique story- from the finely blended formulation inside- to the detailed and opulent packaging on the out.

I know most of you guys have probably seen a variety of MOR products featured in various fashion and beauty magazines as they have been featured in over 500 publications in many different countries. MOR products are coveted by some of the hottest celebrities around and with good reason....They are amazing!!

I was lucky enough to get to sample Neroli Clemetine Hand & Body lotion as well as Black Cherry Plum Emporium Soap Bar....

The minute I picked opened this package, before I even took all the packaging out of the box, I could smell the delicious scents of these two products and I couldn't believe how fast the shipping was. First, I am going to tell you about the Hand and Body lotion.....

I received the Neroli Clementine scent. This is an everyday essential that moisturizes and soothes, leaving the skin refreshingly fragrant and hydrated. The fragrance is fresh Neroli & sweet Clementine, which rest a top a base of bright Yuzu & candied Orange. Like all MOR Products it is definitely a treat for your sense's. It's not over powering at all ,it's very subtle but long lasting. However, this lotion is not just about pretty scents. The consistency is reasonably thick for a lotion and moisturizes extremely well. This is perfect for people like me that like a very light body product however, if you like more of a heavier, thicker product you may want to go with their body butter collection. I am absolutely in love with this product, my skin is definitely softer, and has a more radiant glow to it. This is super affordable at only $18 for a 11.8 oz bottle which will last a while!

The second item I received was the Black Cherry Plum Emporium Soap Bar....

Unwrap a remnant of 17th century decadence and indulge in the Emporium Soap Bar Collection. Bringing to life designs long buried in archives of bygone days, the Triple-Milled Soaps will indulge the body and soothe the soul.  The scent I received I received, Black Cherry Plum, is like nothing else I have ever experienced. It is truly incredible! It has top notes of cherries, plum, red currant and tangerine zest blend with the musky aroma of blonde woods to finish in a sweet fruity scent. I must admit, this was so beautifully packaged, I didn't want to open it but of course I did. I typically don't like soap bars as they tend to dry my skin out however, I was very surprised with this. It was so soft and luxurious, my skin was very moisturized after words. I have never used another bar soap that was anything like this, I liked this better than my regular body wash and I never thought I would say that about a soap bar! The scent is so amazing and it actually compliments the body lotion I received very well too. This soap will last a very long time and at $14 it is an affordable treat anytime you want or need some extra pampering!

The beautiful packaging gives a luxurious boudoir feel to my bathroom and will definitely go on display anytime I have guest.  There are many other amazing, beautiful products offered by MOR Cosmetics, check them all out Here. Be sure to check out the lip macaron's also, they are another favorite of mine.
