It’s whale season and they’re abundant this year! From your deck chair sipping coffee in the morning or a margarita at dusk… this past week they’ve been putting on a show. With any luck, you too, can appreciate the show!
Some folks want to keep our area to themselves but Chris and Cindy at Villa Amor del Mar love sharing and are incredibly proud that our area made Frommer’s top destinations for 2014! Their La Cruz rental is unique to the area being the only Boutique Inn with a maximum of 16 folks enjoying the private infinity pool overlooking the Bay of Banderas.

Oxnard’s has new Face and Body Spritzers that are perfect for hot and humid days. It can be carried in your purse and used whenever you feel the need. He has several different choices to choose from:.
Witch Hazel – anti-inflammatory, encourages cell regeneration, astringent.
Lavender Hydrosol – gentle and soothing to the skin.
Extracts of Calendula and Chamomile.
Fragrant Essential  oils.

Oxnard’s also has a new foaming salt scrub
with eucalyptus and lemon essential oils. Great for exfoliating off the dead skin cells so your skin will look young and vibrant; gentle foaming action for cleansing with Allantoin ad glycerine to insure your skin is soft.
This scrub is so emollient it wont drop to the bottom of your shower but will stay where you apply it!

Oxnard’s New Shaving Cream SoapI have tried this shaving cream soap and it is really wonderful! This is an Oxnards limited edition product (because it takes 4 months to make). The result is a beautiful, rich and creamy soap which is wonderful for shaving (face or legs). It contains coconut and sunflower oils, castor oil and safflower oils, as well as glycerine and Bentonite clay to protect your skin while you shave (the clay forms a micro layer so the razor does not dig into the skin). This shaving soap also contains essential oils of orange and lemon.
