I first came across Le Couvent des Minimes while reading Biteki a couple of years ago. At the time, the brand wasn’t widely available in the UK, but things have changed considerably since Boots started to carry its products. Part of the L’Occitane Group, Le Couvent des Minimes mainly carries skincare, bodycare and fragrance products. This month, the brand launched Loving Care Body Balm range, and today I am highlighting The Lotion for Dry Skin.
