Le Couvent des Minimes Leg Lotion that is perfect for summer. The cooling formula has purifying mint and lemon to revive and refreshes tired and legs so you can bare your stems in confidence.
When I first catch sight of the bottle I'm drawn to the old fashioned lettering and the black and white pictures that seem forever ago. Reminds me of some sort of vintage portrait, so to me, that's a clever packaging idea. I'm sure many of you can't see the fine print on this lotion bottle, but it actually says, "Hiker's Leg Healer". So although fragrance reminds me of just a luxury lotion for your arms, legs and hands, it's really meant for people that have tired aching legs, and/or feet.
Le Couvent des Minimes Leg Soothing Lotion: Revive and refresh tired and dry legs with this comforting formula. Grapeseed Oil and Shea Butter deeply hydrates and repairs skin, while Ivy, Red Vine, Cypress, and Spearmint help to reactivate microcirculation. Purifying Alpine Mint, Lemon, and Listea Cubeba provide a delicate fresh scent.
The key scents here are Lemon and Mint and when I say Lemon and Mint, I mean WHOA. Lemon and Mint to a total extreme. So if you hate either smell I would say no way is this for you. It smells exactly like the mint leaves you would put in a cup of tea. So once you apply this all over your legs and feet, you get a bit of a tingly sensation and then a relaxing feeling takes over, just like I'm at the spa. I would recommend this specific lotion to anyone who is on their feet all day, maybe standing or walking. Someone that runs or jogs a lot or does heavy leg workouts will also love this lotion. If you know someone that has leg issues, or joint pain, this would be the perfect gift, even for Christmas. (Yes it's not too early to think about christmas gifts!)

I plan on running a marathon at one point in my life, and when I finally get there, I will want the Le Couvent des Minimes soothing lotion right afterwards. Another fabulous idea is applying this all over your body before bedtime. The mint smell relaxes you and helps you sleep. My husband loved the smell! The Leg Soothing Lotion sells for $25.00 for a 4.8 bottle. Where to find: usa.lecouventdesminimes.com
