New Beauty Brand Alert! Le Couvent des Minimes

Le Couvent des Minimes is a beautiful new brand originating from the south of France.   

I do love a little back story when it comes to new brands, so here you go;

Le Couvent des Minimes is actually a beautiful hotel and spa in Provence, the south of France.

Before it was transformed into a place of pampering and well being, it was originally a 17th century Convent, named after the Minim brothers who were botanist monks. They grew and studied several beneficial plant species and used their expertise to provide food and remedies to the surrounding community. These same plants have inspired the current collection of beauty care products and can be found in their recipes today.  


A true delight for your senses, Le Couvent des Minimes Natural Skincare Recipes offer a journey through ancient traditions and gorgeous sceneries of gardens and orchards and their extensive product range covers  all of your daily skincare needs with simple, effective and pleasant products.

And so, I was really excited to road test their Smile Lip Balm in Pear Aroma (£5) and the Rose Skincare Regenerating serum (£27).

May I firstly draw your attention to their beautiful packaging! I LOVE the traditional, vintage-esq pastel colours and labels. They look expensive and oh so classy!

Firstly, the Smile Lip Balm Pear Aroma is designed helps to nourish and repair dry lips on a daily basis. Thanks to its softening Marshmallow with nourishing Shea butter and protective Apricot oil, it is super nourishing, hydrating and totally non sticky.

It smells INCREDIBLE, like fresh, fruity, juicy pears. I find myself being unable to resist licking it off my lips for a little taste!

It is light, offers a great sheen on your lips and neither greasy nor sticky. It’s simply divine.

Going down a more floral route is the Rose Regenerating Serum. Beautifully packaged, this pale pink, fragrant serum works to refine skin texture and even out skin tone.


The silky, velvety and light formula contains a blend of 4 Beneficial Roses to intensely moisturise your skin leaving it looking and feeling fresh and plumped.

I’m not ordinarily a big fan of Rose scented products, but I found this serum’s scent to be extremely relaxing and I adored its light texture.

Used on my freshly cleansed skin, it was absorbed quickly and left my face feeling fresh and moisturised all while the comforting rose scent lingered and soothed my soul!

I can’t wait to get my hands on more from this beautiful new brand!
