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 White. When you get 2 – there is 10% off.
It comes beautifully packaged, and you get two sachets with lavender. This pillow case is also machine washable which is great news.
Massaging Slippers (£100)
I was very curious about these. Massaging slippers have magnetic insoles that, according to Holistic Silk, “improve circulation and relieve aching legs and feet”.
The ones I have are Carp Brocade, but there are also silver, gold and jade motives. There are also some of their previous collections which are in sale now.
These look really beautiful, a real decadent piece. But they also should “massage your feet to soothe your entire body whilst magnets aid pain relief and improve circulation and metabolism”. Holistic silk suggest you wearing them for yoga, flights and even in the office to aid circulation and prevent swelling. You can even use the insole in different shoes or wear the slippers without the insole.
To find out more details about how it works – read the instructions on the website. But, in a nutshell, it’s all based on the points which are related to our digestive and lymphatic system. I remember when I had a long course of massage, the masseur showed me a lot of those points on the body and what they are related to. And that technique really works. If only I remembered all of it now!
As you can tell, Holistic Silk is one of those high-end luxury brands that make your life more pleasant, it’s like a work of art. The products cost a lot but you know what you are paying for. Everything I’ve bought from them in the past lasted me for years. And, to be honest, I’d rather have one product which I really love than a few average ones.
And I personally really love the idea of the Anti Ageing Silk Moisturising Gloves and Yoga Rug Mat.
