After cleansing, pamper dry skin with the honey and shea-infused Le Couvent des Minimes Moisturizing Body Lotion.

Le Couvent des Minimes

Birchbox Breakdown

Inspired by old-school recipes from two botanist monks, this French shower gel smells so strongly of natural honey, it’s enough to make Winnie the Pooh seethe with jealousy. (Seriously—we’re tempted to pour this golden elixir straight into our tea.) The gel gently but thoroughly cleanses skin, leaving behind its signature drizzled-honey scent.

How it Works

This gentle formula combines royal jelly with real honey from Haute Provence for a lather that leaves skin smoother, softer, and more fragrant. What’s more? We can also use it to wash our hair.

How to Use

Squirt generously onto a loofah or directly onto skin, lather, and rinse. Also works as an ultragentle shampoo.

I want to lick my delicious smelling body
Purchased

I got the second kind of hand cream in the tube and just about tried to eat it because it smelled of honey and so good so that my husband enjoyed the scent and used my hand cream. I decided it was time to branch out! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS shower gel which I use to soak in the tub. I come out smelling so sweet I almost can't get to sleep at night due to constantly smelling this product! BRAVO BIRCHBOX!

Clean!
Purchased

I love this gel! I don't need to use terribly much to get a good all over lather with a pouf. It doesn't leave a weird film on my skin after rinsing. The scent was a bit startling. I wasn't expecting it to be so strong, or lasting. It isn't unpleasant, by any means. It smells like honey, after all. The scent blends well with the perfumes I wear--Harvey Prince Hello, Benefit Laugh with Me Leelee, Joie Folle de Joie.

The best smelling honey gel ever
Purchased

I love this product. I'm pretty obsessed with honey, and the smell is to die for. A little goes a long way. Amazing! It's my new favorite.

Awesome!
Purchased

Exactly as described. I want to eat it. Smells so good. Leaves a nice, soft, lingering scent, but not too over-powering where you smell like honey all day. Great size as well. I love it.

Delish scent of Honey

This shower gel smells so natural like fresh honey. No fakey sweet smells here! It pairs very well with the lotion, which I think smells even better (if that's possible.) It also does not dry out the skin or leave a residue. A high quality product!
