This is a fantastic product to enhance your Le Rêve
fragrance layering collection. The active deodorant
ingredients are completely natural and function by
destroying the bacteria that cause body odour while
allowing the normal body functions that are otherwise
prevented by antiperspirants. Le Rêve Perfumed
Deodorant contains no aluminium, zinc or other metals.
Gentle moisturisers and humectants enhance and protect the body’s moisture level, Aloe Vera and Allantoin provide soothing, calming and healing properties while Lichen
extract provides deodorising effects.

THE PERFUMED DEODORANT MIST….
Enables you to layer without having a fruit cocktail mix!

By using non Le Rêve deodorants/antiperspirants, you
are introducing another fragrance which will clash with
your perfume layering products.

Contains natural antibacterial properties, which
eliminates odour naturally and leaves you feeling
confident all day long!

Is an extremely economical product to use that will last
up to 10 months (usage time based on a couple of
squirts under each arm once a day).

Is best to apply straight after your shower to continue
your fragrance layering allowing you to feel clean and
fresh.

Is not an antiperspirant. Antiperspirants work by
preventing your body from performing a natural and
normal function. The Deodorant Mist kills the bacteria
that causes body odour without stopping healthy
perspiration.

Contains no harmful ingredients such as aluminium,
zinc and metals. This means you can apply a product
that is safe to use without any harmful affects.

Contains natural, cooling and soothing ingredients.

Does not need consistent reapplying and it will help
keep you fresh throughout the day.

Is great to use in any crease areas and under the breasts
to avoid body odour in those areas.

Is fantastic to use over the entire body during summer
for a cool-down affect.

Is great to use in conjunction with the Le Rêve Dusting
Powder. For those people who dislike wetness simply
apply the Dusting Powder after your Deodorant Mist,
which will help absorb the moisture.

Doesn’t clog pores.

Is gentle on the skin.

Also works as an anti-inflammatory.

 
 

The skin is our largest organ. It's amazingly resilient. It can cope with all kinds of harmful stresses every day - but not completely, not forever. Ageing, ill-health, exposure to sunlight, pollution, free radicals and other environmental factors all take their toll. Once the damage is done it's hard , even impossible to undo. When the health of our skin is less than ideal, we need to support the essential processes and replenish any depleted building blocks with an effective daily skin care routine utilising the highest quality products. Le Reve's skincare products stand at the forefront of today's skin care technology. They feature state-of-the-art, breakthrough ingredients found only in the most expensive, advanced brands - but, true to the Le Reve dream, within reach of everyone.

BREAKTHROUGH INGREDIENTS

Ceramides:
Ceramides play a paramount role in the skin's ability to prevent and repair external damage and to retain moisture. They're found naturally in our skin, and they're the most commonly lacking skin components as a result of ageing and environmental effects. Le Reve's human-skin-identical ceramides, help to hydrate and slow moisture loss, while restoring smoothness, gloss and softness to your skin, helping to prevent premature ageing and appearance of fine linesand wrinkles.

Pure Essential Oils:

Le Reve's skincare products have combined breakthrough ingredients with the natural and therapeutic power of pure essential oils. Each essential oil has been chosen to promote a sense of calm and wellbeing, while serving specific functions within the products. The cleansing products contain combinations of lemon, cedarwood and lime. These oils combine to promote cleansing and overall freshness. Orange, cedarwood and mandarin are included in the Oil Control and Balancing ranges, which sooth and calm the skin. The Perfect and Rich ranges contain rosewood to help promote regeneration in mature skin. Bergamot, palmarosa, ylang ylang, frankincense, clary sage and cypress are featured in most of the products to calm and sooth the skin. Other pure essential oils included in the range are sandalwood, lavender, and patchouli which help relax and and dispel tension and stress, as well as retaining suppleness and softness in the skin. Peppermint and grapefruit provide the benefits of cleansing and refreshing.

Anti-oxidants:

Other sources of damage to skin cells include pollution, ultra-violet rays, alcohol, smoking, stress, poor nutrition and illness.
Anti-oxidants - powerful free radical scavengers - can neutralise the harmful effects of these influences. Le Reve's range includes several potent anti-oxidants, including Coenzyme Q10, white tea leaf extracts, green tea leaf extracts and Vitamin E, that help to slow degeneration of external cells while regenerating healthy cells.

How long a fragrance will last on the skin depends on the wearer. Oily skin retains perfume longer than dry skin, so less should be used.

More perfume can be worn in colder weather. Its staying power is lessened by the cold and intensified by warmth.

You should only ever test 3 or 4 different fragrances at one time. After smelling a number of different fragrances your nose will become fatigued and distort the scent.

Avoid smelling a fragrance immediately after it is applied as the true scent of the top notes is interfered with by the sudden volatile rush of alcohol. It is best to wait for 60 seconds or so after the perfume has be been sprayed and then experience it.

Never smell perfume straight from the bottle for the same reason.

Perfume is never exactly the same on any two people. Body chemistry alters the scent to make it unique to each individual.

Perfume should be applied from below the knee upwards. Fragrance rises, so if it's applied only from the shoulders up, much of the scent is lost.

Apply to the pulse points - the warmth of the body allows the fragrance to develop.

If possible avoid applying with the fingers directly from the bottle as this allows bacteria and skin oils to enter the bottle, causing the perfume to deteriorate from its original scent.

Perfume should be kept away from heat, light and air. They adversely affect the scent. Once the bottle is opened it should preferably be used up within one year.

Never wear perfume while sunbathing. Some perfume oils will react with ultra violet rays from the sun to cause skin discolouration.

Constantly wearing one fragrance causes 'nose fatigue' to that fragrance, which can result in over use.

Le Reve's exquisite collection of Aromatherapy products includes 30 pure essential oils, burners, massage oils and much more. Why not indulge your senses today.


It can not be stressed too often how important it is to use pure, natural, authentic essential oils. A reliable supplier is the best safeguard, one who is in regular contact with manufacturers, dealers or producers of the oils. Synthetic or inorganic substances contain no dynamic "life force". Check the country of origin of the oil, the botanical name of the plant, the part of the plant that has been used and the method of extraction.

Essence of Rose and Jasmine found on shop shelves, for example, will invariably be synthetic, simply because the natural product is so costly to produce.
Rose oil, for example - it takes over 3000 kilograms of Rose petal to make 1 kilogram of Rose oil! This cost factor prompted distributors to mix 3% of rose, jasmine, chamomile and neroli essential oils in a base of jojoba, a suitable carrier oil.


This way the authentic characteristics are maintained at an affordable price, a drawback being that diluted oils are unsuitable for burners. The price of essential oils can vary. It depends on availability, which depends on the harvesting and the yields. Clearly there is a different cost associated with, say hand-picking rose petals and mechanically harvesting eucalyptus.

Key properties of essential oils are:

They are insoluble in water
They are soluble in other oils and soluble in ethanol
They are all volatile, some more than others
They will oxidise over time, developing unpleasant odours and undesirable qualities, so keep your oils well-sealed
They will polymerise, or deteriorate, in bright light, changing the chemical structures and varying the functional qualities, so store your oils in dark bottles

"Just a question... When you talk about layering, where would you recommend we layer? Should we use the products all over the body, or are there particular spots where we should use each product/avoid using it?" Lauren

Firstly, thanks for the email Lauren!

Soaps: used all over the body (not face!)

Deodorant mists: can be used solely as a deodorant or as an "all over" body spray. I have used it as both (especially since bub number 3 came along!). This is a personal choice for each to make.

Body lotion: can be used all over the body (not face) and is a must for all. Body lotion not only stops your skin from drying out but it also ensures that your perfume lasts even longer.

Body oil mist: can be used all over the body (not face). Personally I have only every used it on my legs and arms to give that healthy glow. May also be used in your hair - helps those of us with curly hair to manage the frizz!

Dusting powder: all over the body (not face) but you will find it works even better when used in places on the body that sweat. It helps to absorb the moisture without clogging pores. Some people have even used it by patting some onto their sheets - especially when they are trying to create a romantic mood in the bedroom!

Parfum: best used on the pulse points.

Remember, however, that when we spray perfume from the neck up we will become accustomed to the fragrance and not be able smell it after a while. But please, do not reapply as others around you are still able to smell it. If you are using a parfum always keep in mind that it may last on your skin for up to 18 hours! Longer if you fragrance layer!
I hope that this answers your question! If you have any other questions please feel free to email me directly at looybear@hotmail.com

 
 

Fragrance is called the invisible influencer. Scent appeal is subconscious. The sense of smell is the only one of the five that immediately registers information in the brain.

Human emotional response to smell is very sensitive, strong and subjective. The psychological effect of a remembered smell can have a direct bearing on human behaviour and decision making.

Recent research indicates that there is a very strong link between sense of smell and interpersonal chemistry. We seem to be attracted to people whose smell appeals to our subconscious.

This is why perfume is the ultimate accessory. It it mysterious and emotional. Fragrance is an undeniable force in our lives. It can heal, it can calm and evoke the senses. Our choice of perfumes, and where and when we wear them, speaks volumes about ourselves and our perception of self.

 
Dry Skin 02/23/2009
 

Every skin type can become dry from factors such as the sun; poor diet; neglect; but primarily from aging changes. The skin's ability to hold moisture diminishes. If the dryness is from aging, oil production also slows. The pH may register above 5.6.

Dry skin needs good quality skin care to help keep it well nourished and hydrated. Otherwise, if unprotected, a deeply dehydrated and oil dry complexion may follow which may develop redness if the skin is fair; and fine or deep wrinkles with loss of elasticity.

Also recommended, is a diet rich in cold-pressed, fatty acid rich oils; plus to drink lots of water every day.

Characteristics:

Taut, tight and papery
May appear to be drawn
Flaky patches
Rarely blemishes
No shine
Wrinkles on the face and neck
Superficial and/or deep dehydration
Loss of elasticity, skin may appear loose
Skin may be thick or thin
Under-active sebaceous glands
