Last week I brought you my first post on Mastic Spa which was an introduction to Mastic Spa along with a competition if you haven't entered yet you still have lots of time just click here. As I said at the time they also sent me a number of products to try out myself and here I am back with the first post in my review series from them.
Mastic Spa – Cocoa Butter Cream Bitter Almond
Made for very dry skin this body butter contains cocoa butter, butter germ, mastic oil, bitter almond and rice oils and is free from Parabens Mineral Oil, propylene glycol, ethanolamine, triethanolamine.
Now I wouldn't class most of my skin as dry it has its dry areas like around my elbows but on the whole I've always thought of it as quite oily. But WOW I love this butter, I can really feel such a difference in my skin since I have started using it – my skin is really feeling like it has regained a lot of moisture (which I didn't know it was even missing) as well as becoming a whole lot softer and smoother to the touch.
All of these products have a scent you do need to get used to, it's by no means nasty it's just different which I can only put down to the Mastic and the fact it's not an ingredient I myself is used to.
If you want to give the Cocoa Butter Cream in Bitter Almond a try (and I do recommend you do as it is fabulous) you can buy it online at Mastic Spa with an RRP of 12.90 Euros (Everything is 50% off at the moment though making it just 6.45 Euros so now is the time to try.)
Mastic Spa – Revital Hair Mask
This hair mask contains ingredients such as Mastic and olive oil to provide deep care and rejuvenation while jojoba, wheat extract and vitamin E help give it back its healthy glow. I honestly thought when I saw this mask it would smell like mint but it probably has one of the most subtle fragrances out of the group I was scent.
It's lovely to work with as it works into the hair easily and is simple to washout. They suggest it is best leave it for 5 – 10 minutes before washing out, I've used it a couple times each week over the past few weeks and I think it's making a difference my hair seems to look healthier and it feels smoother so far I have yet to experience any kind of build-up which is normally my upset with masks.
If you feel your hair could do with the Mastic treatment you can grab the Revital Hair Mask for 15.80 Euro (though it has 50% off at the moment so is just 7.90!)
What do you think of these first two items from Mastic Spa, would you like to try them?
