So, my favorite health and beauty store for naturally-based products is a store they have here in California called Pharmaca. It is pretty great. Think Whole Body (at Whole Foods) – but BETTER. Bigger selection of items, better products, more product choices within each brand, and the top of the line natural beauty / skin care items…it’s just, frankly, great.
My entire facial skin care line comes from there, but that is another post for another day.
Anyway, I love their store and it’s always fun to just browse and find new brands and items I had never heard of. One of my favorite parts is their clearance section, where you can find amazing natural-based brands for up to 75% off! That’s a good deal when you are trying to purchase all-natural products. But, I digress.
Today’s post is about the interesting, super practical gift basket I just won at their Mother’s Day Weekend raffle. Frankly, I’m a bit disappointed it was something that requires being “sick” to use…. (I mean, when you get a gift basket, wouldn’t you want to dive in and take advantage of it right away?!?) On the upside, however, it’s a very full basket of homeopathic goodies (which are right up my alley) and worth probably $100 estimated retail value. Not to shabby, even if you do have to be sick to use this stuff.
The brand is Boiron. (Though at first I was a bit tempted to think the basket was “boring” due to the less-exciting nature of its contents. After all, facial products or spa goodies or even mani/pedi items would have been pretty darn exciting from one of my favorite stores ever!!) But nope. It was not any of those. No beauty products. It was Boiron.
Seemed a bit at first…but I did a little bit of extra research online and Amazon reviewers are giving these products 4.5 to 5 out of 5 stars. Not too shabby. Usually Amazon reviews are a pretty solid way to get a read on product quality.
While I don’t exactly want to get sick to be able to test these (thus the “boring” nature of the Boiron basket), I am quite curious to put these homeopathic meds to the test!
What about you? Do you know anything about Boiron? Would love to hear your comments below!
