Lifetherapy Escape Hand & Body Wash, Body Lotion and Eau de Parfum | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I am what one might consider fanatical about using soaps and lotions that feel and smell heavenly. I definitely slow down and relish the experience of the lovely textures and scents, and this tends to set the pace for the way that I greet the rest of the day.

Lifetherapy, is a new-to-me line, that features a "mood-boosting bath and body collection created with thoughtful ingredients and luxury packaging. The entire collection is made in the U.S.A. and is healthy for your body: sulfate-free, paraben-free, phthalates-free, and vegan friendly. They’re also cruelty-free!"

That I was delighted at first use, is an understatement. The scent of their Escape line is a lovely commingling of Gardenia, Pineapple Leaf, Sensuous Musk, Palm Bark, and this combination is extraordinarily lovely. The Gardenia is tempered by the fruity, woodsy and musky scents, and the end result is a beautifully refined gardenia with warm and subtle edges.

I luxuriate in using the Escape Hand & Body Wash followed by their lotion, and then topped off by a few spritzes of their Eau de Parfum. My skin is left soft, supple, moisturized, and deliciously fragrant.

Escape Hand & Body Wash ($24.00 for 12 oz. from Lifetherapy and Open Sky): This non-stripping hand and body wash leaves skin moisturized, soft, and supple. The fragrance fills the shower and thankfully lingers in the air for a while so that the enjoyment doesn't end when you finish showering. This also works beautifully for shaving legs and underarms!

Softly fragranced wash specially formulated with an LT Complex, shea butter, coconut oil and vitamins E & D. 

This luxurious wash will moisturize while cleansing leaving skin soft and healthy looking. Also makes a lush moisture-rich soothing bubble bath.

The sparkling pineapple leaf top note of Escape gives way to sweet gardenia, anchored by the warmth of palm bark and musk. This multi-layered fragrance is a treat for the senses and will set your mind free to wander. 

Notes: Gardenia, Pineapple Leaf, Sensuous Musk and Palm Bark.

Escape Hydrating Body Lotion ($24.00 for 12 oz. from Lifetherapy and Open Sky): This is a lightweight, fast absorbing, nourishing and ultra-hydrating lotion. It is beautifully emollient and leaves skin unbelievably silky smooth, delectably soft, and deeply moisturized. It sinks in so quickly that you don't have to wait for it to dry down before getting dressed. The scent is heavenly, and it layers perfectly with their Eau de Parfum.

Our hydrating lotion is rich in skin conditioners, natural oils and vitamins that work in harmony to leave skin silky soft and moisturized.

Escape Eau de Parfum ($48.00 for 1.7 oz. from Lifetherapy and Open Sky): As this fragrance dries down, on me, it becomes a lovely fruity Gardenia that elevates the mood and soothes the senses. It stays close to the skin so that you don't announce yourself before anyone sees you.

    1. The gardenia is definitely toned way down, and it lacks the sharp assertive edge normally associated with gardenia. It's a very mellow scent that clings close to the skin. I definitely want to investigate the line further.
