Hair and Body Care

Halcyon blue by Val Harding

"Gee, your hair smells nice." That was just one of the compliments we received after sampling some of the products from Halcyon blue, the collection of hair and body care products from the Australian company. Already established Down Under as part of the Val Harding Collection, the created-for-U.S. Halcyon blue line recently made its debut at the Hotel Bel-Air in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.

Striving to produce quality luxury products for hotel guests, creator Val Harding features all-natural ingredients like peppermint, macadamia oil and grapefruit oil to provide non-greasy products with light, pleasing fragrances. The collection includes toiletries like shampoo, conditioner and shea butter milled soap, as well as other moisturizers like Body Balm, Lip Balm and Hand & Nail Cream. We enjoyed its light textures, while the line's scents were just subtle enough to be used by both men and women. With quality spa products encased in sleek packaging, Halcyon blue definitely helps make a pleasant getaway even more luxurious.

Prices: Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body balm are available in 6 oz. tubes for $20 each via their website.
