Ascending Butterfly Editor's Pick Sponsored By:



Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - My running theme this week has stemmed from a burning desire to escape the bitter cold, snowy and icy' not-so-wonderland' that is New York this week! With technology challenges that include my laptop being in the shop for repair and spotty connections with my ISP, my daydreams of warm, sun-drenched and sandy beaches are pretty much all consuming at this point.

And then along comes my friends at MOR Cosmetics to the rescue! While they didn't send me on the caribbean vacay of my dreams, they did the next best thing to it, they sent me some goodies to try out that transported me with a sensory delight of aromatherapy that nearly did take me to the tropics!

MOR is a line of divinely inspired skincare, spa and body products that draws inspiration from the far corners of the globe. It was during a trip to India in 2001 to source fabrics for their homeware line that Melbourne based founders Dianna Burmas and Deon Iuretigh fell in love with the endless possibilities of blending traditional and contemporary ingredients to create an array of fragrances and beauty products. Deciding to channel all their energies into a new line of body products, they created MOR Cosmetics. With over 350 products today, the line has a cult like following and is sold in some of the world's hippest boutiques. Mor offers a range of products from bath oils and foams, body wash and scrubs, soothing massage oils, richly emollient hand and body creams, and lovely soaps and candles.

I tried out the Lychee Flower Soap, it's a MOR Cosmetics best-seller and for very good reason, the scent is hypnotic, and it instantly conjures up images of a warm beach, flowers in your hair and the sun on your skin, yes folks, it's THAT good!



And don't get me started on the packaging! It's so beautiful that it took me forever to open it because I didn't want to destroy the paper! But I know I have to do the 'hard' stuff so you don't have to, and while I did open it very carefully, the scent permeated the air in the bathroom in such a way that it rivals some of the finest candles I've purchased!

These are stunners, perfect to display in your powder room and your guest bathroom as well. (Why do guests always get the good stuff?) These are also fabulous hostess gifts!

I also had the pleasure of trying out the Snow Gardenia Body Butter. I am pretty picky when it comes to my body butters. I like them to be rich (not too thick, no too thin), to be super-hydrating (especially in winter since it's so cold and windy here that the weather tends to dry out my skin) and I like scent, I like to know it's there (not too much as to offend the 'noses' working around me but enough to know I have something special on!) and I am pleased to report, Mor definitely exceeded my body butter expectations. And that's not so easy to do!


Again, note the beautiful packaging! It's already ready for gift giving! Gentlemen take note, that special lady in your life will absolutely LOVE this! This is vanity worthy packaging for sure. Don't you just love the silk damask inspired packaging?
