Mini Skin Care Haul….

As you know I’m a HUGE Rachel Zoe addict and I read about the MOR range in one of her monthly newsletters.  Since reading the review, I really wanted to try this product but had previously not had the chance do it.
In 2010, I first came across these amazing products when we moved to Perth and rented a furnished house.  The owners of this place had an incredible and lavish taste and utilised the MOR range in their bathroom.  As these products were for our use, I decided to give them a go.  I instantly fell in love with MOR.  They had a strong but very pleasant fragrance and felt amazing on my skin. The next day I visited both Myers and David Jones (Australian department stores) determined to track down further MOR products and give them a try.
The whole MOR range has a luxurious appearance and a feeling of decadence reminiscent of the Court of Marie Antoinette.  I instantly wanted to purchase them but was stymied by Mr No Spenders Mug at the time.  I had to wait another year to give them another go…
During Boxing Day 2011 (Australia’s version of the US’ Black Friday sales), I was able to get two discounted gift packs (one from the Emporium White Collection and the other from the Marshmallow Collection).  The latter was a gift for a friend who was visiting me from France. The Emporium White Collection had all the essential products I needed.

Review - Emporium White Collection:
The Collection came in a fabulous white cosmetic bag: white/chic and it holds most of my everyday essential make-up.

Hand Cream: AUD$24.95  (Emporium White Collection - Belladonna Hand Cream 100ml 3.3 Fl Oz) 

The smell of this hand cream is absolutely divine!!  For me it has the intense bouquet of white roses and frangipani.  According to the description on the tube, this cream contains shea & cocoa butter blend with glycerine, Irish moss and vitamins A & E to improve and hydrate dry skin.  It is also infused with sesame seed oil & allantion that helps to create soft skin.  It’s free of parabens, mineral oil & synthetic dyes.
I have now been using this hand cream for about a week and YES! the combination of these amazing ingredients have worked wonders for my hands.  The cream has a thick texture to it, glides on the skin smoothly and absorbs very effectively making my hands exceptionally soft.  The wonderful fragrance from the hand cream continues to linger a long time after the original application.

Emporium Soap Bar: AUD$19.95 
This beautifully wrapped and presented soap has a 17th Century extravagance to it.  It has a beautiful smell similar to the hand cream and is perfect in my guest bathroom.  The fragrance from the soap itself provides the room with a wonderful aroma even when it is not in use.

  Lip Macaron: AUD$12.95 10gs .36oz
Filled with vitamin E and beeswax, this lip balm moisturised my chapped lips instantly.  The packaging makes this product the perfect little gift for either you or for a friend who loves anything girly… It also fits perfectly in my travel/make up bag.

Emporium White Collection - AUD$34.95 and The Marshmallow Gift pack - AUD$34.95 (used as a gift to my friend) purchased from Myers.

My overall thoughts on this range:
I HIGHLY recommend these products to everyone.  What I like about the MOR range is that it’s not tested on animals and it has a unique and elegant look to it.  I’m sure I will purchase further products from this range into the future!  I just can’t resist the exquisite packaging and the amazing fragrance.
MOR range was founded in 1998 by two designers in Melbourne Australia.  Since then, this range has grown and now recognised globally for its innovative, luxurious pampering body care and lifestyle products.
MOR COSMETICS ships internationally.  You can get more information from MOR Website via the following:
