It is always great when a brand you have been a customer of for a long time contacts you to offer some of their products for a review. This is what happened recently with Holistic Silk. I have been using and recommending their sleeping masks for many years, so it was nice to be able to try more products from them.
I was given an opportunity to select the items myself so I went for a silk pillow case and massage slippers, as those seemed to be the perfect items for spending so much time at home.
Pure Mulberry Silk Anti Ageing Pillowcase (£80).
I’ve been hearing so many great things about silk pillow cases but somehow never picked one up because I already use either satin or high quality cotton ones. But this silk pillow case is truly something else. This mulberry silk is the softest and glossiest thing ever. It is such a pleasure when your skin touches it. The pillowcase reduces the friction and also stays cool. The words can’t describe how much I love it. It also helps to combat the hair frizz. Now I wish I got one myself earlier. And now I can totally see why people are so obsessed, I don’t want to sleep on anything else ever again. This is as luxurious, as it gets.
The one I have is Navy, and it is 75cm x 50cm. But you can also get Jade, Cream, Rose or
I had a Holistic Silk Relax Eye Mask on my wish list for a very long time but it was very hard to justify an almost £50 price.
But when I saw that several months ago Aromatherapy Associates were giving away an amazing gift with purchase with this mask, I just went for it.
It is a lightly cushioned eye mask that has dried lavender inside. Plus, the velvet lining feels soft and nice against the skin and blocks the light. Not to mention that it looks incredibly beautiful. Yes, when you pay this much every little thing matters.
This sounds like a
Wearing a mask is our new reality. So you may as well like the one you choose to get. While it would be incredible not to need one at all (not to have the virus, I mean), more and more brands are releasing masks.
And, not gonna lie, I
not so secretly love looking at what other people are wearing. I have seen it all already, it seems, from favourite football clubs to the flags of the countries, you name it.
You can honesty find pretty much everything you can think of, depending on your taste and budget.
Here are three options which I chose, they all are high end, and have a £30+ price tag.
Holistic Silk Pure Mulberry Silk Anti Pollution Mask, £36 here
Holistic Silk is the brand I really love, and all their products (which I have tried) are high quality. Besides, they had face masks before the pandemic. I love that fact that they have both simple and colourful designs. While £36 is not cheap, silk is a real game changer when it
Good sleep is crucial, this is why I don’t mind investing in the products which will help me with it. Like Holistic Silk’s sleeping mask and different relaxing beauty products.
As I’ve said many times, aromatherapy works when it’s high quality ingredients mixed together by people who know what they are doing. Just like Aromatherapy Associates and their Deep Relax bath and shower oil which is a cult favourite, and rightly so.
This is why when I’ve found out about their pillow spray, I had to get it right away [this was a few moths ago]. And, as you can tell by the photo, it’s almost gone now.
As you would expect,
Can you believe that it is MAY already? Where did 2015 go? Maybe that is because I am crazy busy these days that I don’t notice anything around me, who knows…
But back to April Beauty Favourites. I did not have that many makeup favourites, and did not want to mention the same products over, and over again – so here are 3 hero products that I have been using every single day when I did my makeup ( I was sick for a week in April which was horrible), and some new beauty loves…

The three makeup heroes I’ve mentioned are: Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review and swatches), Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara (review), Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate (review). I haven’t been experimenting with eye makeup that much this month, and these are the products that just work. Eye brow gel to tint my eye brows and keep them in place, ultra black liner for that feline flick and mascara for thick and long lashes.
There are also three products that I’ve mentioned in my Spring Beauty Guide: Balance Me Radiance Rose Face Oil and Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Rose Radiance Skin Serum for that
