With the economy the way it is and with all the bad news in the world, it's easy to get a little worn down. A few posts back, I talked about ways that you can be good to yourself and I mentioned that I like to use wonderfully scented body moisturizers to give myself a moment of tranquility before heading out to face the day.
Well, it looks like Shiseido and I are in step! This spring, Shiseido Zen The Fragrance introduces Zen Perfumed Shower Gel and Zen Perfumed Body Cream, new aromatic indulgences for the body. Shiseido Zen blends the citrus freshness of the now extinct Blue Rose with the spicy, warm base of Amber. Combined with the spicy truffle notes of Patchouli, Zen is a scent that is subtle yet seductive enough to be worn year-round.
Both new Zen body products include Loquat Leaf Extract from the exotic Biwa plant to provide increased moisturization for supple and smooth skin. The Biwa plant is native to Japan and has traditionally been used as a remedy for various skin and health ailments.
Zen Perfumed Shower Gel($35) indulges skin with a rich lather and a dewy touch. Zen Shower Gel gently exfoliates and rinses clean, leaving skin luxuriously moisturized and fragrant. Specially formulated to also be used as a sensual bubble bath or as a fragranced hair shampoo!
Zen Perfumed Body Cream ($58) melts into skin with its velvety texture. Incorporating the most advanced skincare technology, Zen Body Cream provides long-lasting hydration and re-texturizing benefits without leaving behind a sticky residue on the skin. After application, the body is lightly scented with the aromatic essence of Zen.
Available at fine department and specialty stores nationwide beginning April 2009. The Shiseido Zen collection is also available online at Macy’s, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and Dillards retailers. For more information or to find a store location near you, please visit www.sca.shiseido.com.
