I Do Adore: Bon Remede

This article was originally published in Onya Magazine:

Summer is generally the season for parties and house guests, both which generally require an unnatural level of House Cleanliness and Presentation. You can look over your shoulder with a nonchalant, “Who, me?” but I know the truth. We’re all guilty of a little vain house sprucing before the in-laws or best-couple-friends come to stay. Fresh flowers confidently take place on the side table like it’s a weekly occurrence, tea light candles find themselves next to Swedish designed soap holders and you’ve run the ‘good cutlery’ through the dishwasher after discovering an odd series of splotches that look strangely like baked on potato gratin.

Whether you’re a seasoned expert or basic beginner of the quick pre-guest spruce up, Bon Remede make it easy for you with their affordable, luxe-look range of moisturisers that would make even the hippest boutique hotel ache with jealousy.

This organic range is housed in the most amazing, heavy brown glass jars and labeled with simple yet stylish labels which give an olde world pharmaceutical feel to an overall impressively sophisticated finish. Containing natural lime and orange oils, the Body Lotion ($39.95) has a light citrus scent and is absorbed in an instant. The Face Cream ($49.95) is ultra-hydrating, with an impressive list of organic ingredients and a soft lavender and geranium aroma. The Hand, Nail and Elbow Cream ($29.95) is honestly the only product that has been able to soften my crocodile elbows, drier than the Sturt. Yep, Chronically Dry Elbows, more commonly known as CDE to sufferers. Yes, it’s a real condition; didn’t you see it on Oprah? I am so thrilled to say that this wonder product kept my elbows baby soft nearing on a week. A week!
This is a range of products that won’t be leaving the pointy end of my favourites list for a very long time. Organic, Australian owned and made, affordable luxe, aromatherapy benefits, style, effectiveness and chic good looks – it ticks all the boxes on my guest-bathroom-worthy list. And maybe even your Mother In Law’s…
