Desertdoll brings you some of the best items under the roof with Doll’s house!

A few months ago I wrote about going to the grand reopening of the Spa Desert Springs and all the fanciness that accompanied it. Well, with all the gift bags and free products that were being given out there was only one product that I purchased that night. I smelled it, I sampled it and I just had to make it mine. It was the Deserving Thyme Body Scrub. This is the product used in the Spa’s Signature Desert Journey treatment. And let me tell you, if you are ever in the Palm Springs area, this is a very worthy splurge. Flash forward, the Body Scrub is one of 4 products the lovely Paula sent to MM for us to review. I am so pleased to bring this line to you, it’s one of my most favorite finds of the last 2 years!

Deserving Thyme are a Canadian company, home of clean air, blue skies, mountains and sea. They make pure products of spa quality, using essential oils, plant extracts and vitamins. 2 things grabbed me immediately about this line. First being the scent. Everything I sniffed had the aroma of orange sugar. Like sweet citrus, absolute heaven! And evenly heavenly was the price. As their spokesperson rubbed the brown sugar scrub on my arm, he told me that the price point for most items was below $25. Considering I had paid 60 bucks for the sugar scrub in my shower at the moment, I was very intrigued.

So let’s talk about the Brown Sugar Body Scrub. Here’s what they say “An effective exfoliant and mega moisturizer. Infused with Brown Sugar, the pure essential oils of Orange, Mandarin and Tangerine plus the naturally nourishing oils of Sweet Almond, Apricot Kernel, Jojoba, Wheatgerm and Evening Primrose, this Body Scrub will smooth, soften and reveal fresher looking skin.” Here’s what I say-sheer delight! Not only does this soften your skin and do so at a reasonable price, the amazing scent lingers for hours. I smell this on my skin all day long, that sweet and dreamy sugary citrus smell. Kinda like a creamscicle. Plus, it comes with a scoop. A little genius touch.

Add the Mega Moisturizing Body Butter to really assure the scent sticks around and make your skin as soft as a baby at the same time. In addition to the signature trio of orange oils, this butter is loaded with ingredients that your skin craves: Shea Butter, Vitamin E and many of the same nourishing oils used in the scrub. “Ultra rich yet not greasy or sticky, this Body Butter will effectively hydrate, soften, tone and promote the appearance of healthy-looking skin”. The combination of the 2 of these products is absolute paradise!

Just so we could be in total citrus bliss, they also sent us the Rejoice Soy travel candle which despite it’s small size, lasted quite long. But the product that hasn’t left my hands since it’s arrival is the Lip Care Balm with Spf 15. Besides containing no yucky petroleum, this is made from “Beeswax infused with Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Royal Jelly and oils of Peppermint and Tangerine sweetened with natural honey”. Yum! I love how soft it leaves my lips and the sweetness that wafts up to my nose when I use it. I bought 2 of these in the past 4 months, plus the night of the opening when the valet brought you your car there was a cold bottle of water and one of these lip balms waiting for you. Talk about sweet!

Ladies, let us know which Deserving Thyme product you were lucky to receive and if their products had you in a citrus dream like me!
