Spabox review

Some time ago I’ve been asked if I’d like to try some of the products from Czech website Spabox.cz (Facebook: Spa box) and I finally tested them all out so I can give better review 🙂
Most of the products on the website are cruelty free and are ethically sourced from various European countries like Italy etc. This post maybe especially interesting for people living in Eastern Europe as it’s relatively close to Czech Republic and exchange rate can be very attractive for some countries – basically you get quality products for a good price! 🙂

I’ve been given 4 products: hand cream, bath bomb, shampoo bar and a soap. Let’s start!

Shampoo bar – very moisturizing, foams easily and smells nice. It’s quite heavy in consistency so works the best on dry but healthy hair. It reminds me a lot of Lush shampoo bars so it’s a great alternative for people who do not have access to/money for Lush products. My hair is really damaged from bleaching (I’ve gone for silver hair few months ago) so it needs very light products, however if you’ve got healthy, not very damaged hair this is gonna work great for you!

Honey hand cream – very light consistency, quickly dries on skin and moisturizes hands very well plus smells lovely! Good travel size and metal packaging makes it easy to pop in your bag and always have with you!

Mini milky bath bomb – very nice girly, pink candy/strawberry smell, foams lovely skin feels moisturized afterwards. Great little product if you fancy relaxing bath plus the price is SO good 🙂

Rose soap – couldn’t find a link 😦
Smells like roses, skin feels really soft and moisturized and it lasts for ages (even though it’s small)! I still have it and have been using it for couple of weeks now:)

All in all I think the website is worth having a look – you may need to translate some products though:) I saw that now they’ve introduced cruelty free, natural make up products as well so it’s very exciting! Very affordable prices and good quality is something that I’m always looking for in cruelty free cosmetics.
So feel free having a little browse and I hope this review helps someone! 🙂 xx

 

Hair update

Here’s my hair after one more round of bleach ( 2x Olia )+ La Riche Directions in Silver.
I’m slowly getting there but I don’t want to damage my hair too much, unfortunately now after total 3 series of bleaching my hair has became very knotty at the ends and in general very dry 😦 I’ll make a post about my fav hair conditioners soon! x

DIY White Hair

Few weeks ago I’ve decided that I really want to have white/silver hair so I’ve started my DIY process of bleaching my naturally blonde hair to perfect snow white hair. Well… it is TOUGH. After 2 rounds of bleaching in a space of 3 weeks 4 toners I’m a little bit closer, but still a way to go!

I’ve tested a number of products and I want to share good and bad ones!

Bleach: Jerome Russell Bblonde High Lift + 40% development cream – this didn’t work very well on my blonde hair I expected much better results, however the condition of my hair remained good.

Toner: Schwarzkopf Live Color XXL in M01 absolute hit! Really toned my yellow hair to cold, silvery blonde.

Jerome Russel white toner I’ve used – again very disappointing.

I also tried La Riche Directions White Toner – ABSOLUTE FAILURE! Even though I love their products this toner didn’t work AT ALL on my already very light hair.

La Riche Directions Silver hair dye – this however worked really nicely leaving my hair silvery and soft.

Below you can check out my progress (for some reason the hair looks a little darker), but honestly I thought that having very healthy, blonde hair it will be much easier to get to that platinum tone. I’m not giving up and will continue bleaching my hair:) For now I will deeply condition my hair for a month – using coconut oil treatment, honey/egg hair mask and using protein shampoo, once my hair feels in a better condition I will try the bleach toner treatment again! 🙂
