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

 

August Glossybox

P1000257.JPG

Sooo I just received another Glossybox – turns out I forgot to deactivate my subscription :]
In this month’s box only one thing made me happy – the face cleansing brush. I was planning to buy something similar so that was handy. Other items – not so much.

If I’m completely honest August’s box is a bit disappointing and the items included aren’t satisfying. My face brush came in destroyed packaging and the brush itself has a multiple scratches and looks like a factory reject. Safe to say I won’t regret cancelling the subscription:)

  1. Mudmasky – face mask – sample size, yet to be tested 🙂

  2. Spa To You – facial brush. Very excited to test it! I will definitely report the results 🙂 P1000254
  3. Cowshed body lotion – sample/travel size. Not really my smell – too herbal but will try it out!P1000255
  4. MUA – eyeshadow palette. Full size product. Nicely pigmented and I like this brand!P1000256

Favourite skincare products

Hello everyone!

I can’t wait to share with you my biggest discovery this year! (I know it’s only 19th January BUT this is BIG)

Recently I’ve had a quite big problem with spots on my face. Like never, my face decided to look shitty and cover itself in annoying pimples mainly on my chin, forehead and right cheek(!) – very particular choice. As I’ve never been a fan of face masks I thought well it’s New Year New Me kinda vibe I might try something new. So I went to Lush and told the sales assistant what I’m after. She offered me 2 antibacterial options: garlic face mask or lemon (that is smurf blue color!) I went for the latter and OH MY GOD best choice ever! After 2 uses all the blemishes are gone! As the mask consistence is creamy but also peeling-like so it’s great for exfoliating. My face feels amazing and skin looks very radiant and fresh! I’m in love with this product and use it twice a week and it works miracles ❤

Ok so that’s it about the mask, and below have a look at the list of my fave face products that I’ve tried and tested and I’m happy to settle for a long time with 🙂
