BATH AND BODY: Le Couvent des Minimes, Lavender and Acacia Body Milk

What is it? "Infused with calming lavender extracts, softening acacia extracts and hydrating grapeseed oil, this daily moisturizer soothes and softens skin." A lihtweight, non-greasy, moisturizing body milk with a light scent of lavender.

Why should I buy it? Bath and Body Works currently has a "4 minis for $10 special." I bought the Orange Blossom body cream, the Lavender and Acacia body milk, an Amber and Myrh lotion and one other product that I can't quite recall. Anyhow, the L&A mini is not quite so small - 2.5 ozs - and I was surprised how non-greasy the product is and how subtle the scent is.

Where can I buy it? $16 for a 250ml bottle or $2.50 for a 75ml mini when purchasing three others (see store display for details) at

The Bottom Line: A light, hydrating milk scented with lavender that employs grape seed oil and acacia extact for their moisturizing properties. This stuff would be great for layering with your favorite lavender scents - Caron pour un Homme, L'Occitane Lavender, Dior Homme Eaux des Colognes, etc.
