The weekend houses are open and you’ve just been invited. Now, what are you going to bring to your hosts?
Consider: They’ve paid for the house. They’ve planned your weekend. They clean the house and make the beds before you get there. They do the shopping, they provide the food, do the cooking, serve up the wine, beer, booze. They want you to have a great time so they figure out the weekend entertainment. You don’t pay for anything. All you have to do is show up. Don’t they deserve something special something more than just a baguette from the bakery and a bottle of wine that they’ll probably insist you share with them? That is why we like the idea of treating them to things they can use to relax after you’ve gone. And maybe, if you’ve been a great guest, you can use them yourself, if you’re invited back.
We used to think of Philip B. primarily as a hair care line and it’s true, Philip B. Is a Hollywood hair treatment expert with award-winning blends, all based on pure botanicals and essential oils in luxurious combinations. But Philip B. also has amazing skincare products with some really delicious fragrances (read the advicesistwers.com review of a Philip B Chocolate Milk Gift Set0. . For Summer, however, and after a long weekend of entertaining guests, lavender is the key to relaxation.
For the host with hard working hands: He gathered wood, he stoked the fire pit, he carried everyone’s chairs and the cooler to the music festival, he cooked the burgers. Give him a man-sized tube of Philip B Lavender Lavender Hand and Body Creme ($30.00 6 fl. oz.) The tall tube with flip top cap absorbs quickly with a light lavender scent. But it’s not a lightweight when it comes to dry and chapped hands.
A silky hydrator of perfect consistency, this moisturizes deeply for hours to turn skin supple and glowing, and leaves behind a light lavender scent. Bio-extracts such as African Shea Butter and Safflower Oleosomes hydrate deeply but won’t make hands greasy or slippery, so he can still open that pickle jar for you! Colloidal Oatmeal soothes; Panthenol nourishes; and Essential Amino Acids strengthen skin. The botanical scent comes from pure Provencal lavender oil with sheer flower oils. t’s not “girly,” just refreshing. If he’s a hipster who cares, he’ll also like to know that
We like this for your host, because it’s great but not really “girly,” just pampering and refreshing. If he’s a hipster who cares, he’ll also like to know that Philip B. products are paraben-free, phthalate-free, made without animal testing, and formulated in the U.S.A. with a low-carbon footprint. The botanicals we use are responsibly sourced and all packaging is recyclable.
For the hostess who makes your weekend extra special: Those amazing soaps you love are in your guest bathroom, and she greets you when you wake with an incredible breakfast. Give her this duo of Philip b. Lavender Hand Wash ($33.00 11.8 fl. oz.) and Lavender Hand Creme ($39.00 11.8 fl. oz.) . It doesn’t matter how many bath and body products a household might acquire, truly spa-quality bath and body products are always a welcome gift, especially when they look as beautiful as these hand wash and hand cremes do with easy to use, wide pump tops and plastic containers that are reminiscent of cut crystal. The Lavender scent is light but significant enough to give relaxing pleasure. The Philip B. Lavender Hand Wash gently removes dirt, excess
The Philip B. Lavender Hand Wash gently removes dirt, excess oil and other impurities without stripping hand’s essential moisture. with an amino acid-rich complex of safflower oleosomes, mongogo oil and vitamin E that help maintain skin’s protective moisture barrier, preventing dryness and leaving hands soft and supple with the scent of Provencal lavender. After she’s washed dishes for an entire weekend, her hands need extra TCL. The matching Hand Creme is rich but not greasy, with African Shea Butter and Safflower Oleosomes and Colloidal Oatmeal to soothe, Panthenol to nourish and Essential Amino Acids to strengthen. While it is great for Winter, it’s light enough for Summer when skin can be dry and chapped. It has the same Provencal lavender as the Hand Wash and the Hand & Body Creme, to delight the senses and reduce stress and with the same “eco-cred” as the other products. While the duo will set you back $73.00, try finding a B&B for that price for just one night (in other words, your cost for a priceless

Once you try Philip B. you will be hooked, so buy one for yourself too (why wait until your next weekend visit?) You can find Philip B. products at a number of stores, but we suggest visiting the Philip b. website http://www.philipb.com/
