Last week I reviewed the new Elemis Tranquil Touch Bath Elixir from their Exotic Body line and promised to review the other product from the Body Awaken line.
I’ve actually ordered Elemis’ new body scrub last week. Was torn apart between the mint body scrub and the exotic body scrub. Mint one would be more suitable for summer but I’ve got the Exotic one. Can’t wait till I get it.
But back to the product that I’ve got to try from the Awaken Body range. To tell the truth, I don’t think that I would get anything from that range myself as Exotic or Soothing lines attract me much more. So this is great that I have something different to tell you about.
So, I’ve got a Revitalise-Me Shower Gel 200ml( £16) to try. I assume this would be an amazing product to use in the morning to help yourself to wake up but I don’t have time and don’t like taking shower in the mornings most of the time. But I did take a shower several times in the morning to try out this shower gel!
The first thing that you notice is the pretty
Although I made several posts about Lush already I never really shared my opinion. I also never shared my opinion about any MAC products because there are already TOO MANY reviews about these brands. But I guess it’s time to brake the rules and bring you some reviews about Lush and MAC Cosmetics (in the future).
Do you want to know what I got?
This time I’ve got only 5 products because I want to visit Lush again very soon. I’ve already made the list of what to get 😉
I got :
1. Mmm Melting Marshmallow Moment £3.50
Slow melting musky marshmallow marvel. MMM melts into a pink, fluffy waterbed of marshmallow and moisturizing cocoa butter. Each Melting Marshmallow Moment is made with marshmallow herb, which produces a sweet, skin-soothing mucilage that was used to make sugar candies for hundreds of years, and marigold, which is equally calming for your skin. Take your time, savour each moment and have as many marshmallows as you like.
Jasmine, clary sage and ylang ylang to make you feel like a love goddess. The power of these aphrodisiac oils lies in their ability to relax you at the same time as warming your heart and other body parts. The ancient perfumers of the Mediterranean knew a thing or two about lurve and we’re using the methods they used thousands of years ago for the same results. Whether you want to be calm for a big night out or a quiet night in, prepare to detonate a Sex Bomb.
3.Dreamtime Bath Melt, £2.90
Skin softening, soothing and sleep-inducing melt. Guess when you should drop this luxuriously creamy block into the water? Bedtime! It may look small, but its secret strengths lie in its scent. The Dreamtime causes your worries to fade away with jasmine, lavender calms your head and sandalwood relaxes your limbs, so use it whenever you need a good night’s sleep, soft skin and sweet dreams.
4. Wee Harry, £2.95 with one eye, lol
Elf and safety warming! A warm, spicy bubble bath inspired by warm, spicy Scandinavian drinks. (And elves.) When you visit a Luh shop, you’ll notice that Wee Harry has a diffrent name, but don’t worry: he’s still the same Christmas elf. We realised that every culture has its yuletide elf named different.
5. Sea Vegetable,£2.75
A refreshing splash in the ocean. Sea Vegetable is made with seaweed, one of our favourite ingredients, with a crust of stimulating sea salt to give your body a good scrub down. It smells of lime, lavender and seaweed, a bit like sitting at the beach next to someone applying suntan lotion. This is a great soap for sharing amongst the whole household. The scent is perfectly balanced for boys and girls everywhere.
My impression and some more photos 😉
I’ve heard some really nice reviews about the Latvian brand Stenders so I was excited to visit their shop the other day when I was away for work.
You probably already know that I love rose scent so I’ve picked up two products with roses. Rose bath bubble ball (132 g; €4.30) and Rose bath milk , (100g; €3.80).
Here is a mix of promo photos and my own photos.
I really loved the bubbling effect and the real rose petals, the scent was also lovely, nothing overwhelming. But what surprised me the most is how moisturized my skin was after the bath. The sales assistant told me that Stenders’ bath products were great for dry skin and she was right. The grape seed oil really makes the skin soft and silky. I have never experienced such effect from a bath bomb.
Since I was writing about Elemis today I though I would share my impression about their Skin Nourishing Shower Cream.
This particular Shower Cream is a part of the Soothing range and is “about slowing down the pace at the end of the day, taking time to nourish the body and de-stress the mind. Relaxation is key.” It is also said that this shower cream is made for the excessively dry skin.
And I have to say that
Since I loved the Verbena L’Occitane soap a lot, I’ve decided to try some other soaps from L’Occitane so I’ve got Cinnamon Orange one.
I thought it would put me in a holiday spirit (I know it’s only November, so what?).
And it is as awesome as the Verbena soap, it leaves the skin incredibly clean (the soap gives a nice amount of foam) smooth and soft but without any tight feeling. The scent is very nice but not overwhelming.
In my opinion L’Occitane soaps are among the best ones out there. I will definitely get Lavender Shea Butter and Milk Shea Butter Soaps in the future.
This time I did take a photo of the ingredients:
