Pampa Hamper| Review

I take relaxing time really seriously and having bath bombs and scented candles at home is a must to feel good. You never know when you’ll have a hard day at work and need “me time” when you get home.

I’ve recently subscribed to Pampa Hamper, a box with a range of hand-made Bath and Pamper treats.

My first box arrived on a Saturday morning, my first day of holidays before I headed to Portugal, so imagine how happy I was. Especially because the moment that box entered my apartment it left the most wonderful smell.

This is the first time I use bath bombs from a different brand other than Lush and I was a bit sceptical about this subscription. But you can stop it at any time, so it’s always great to give it a try. And I have a discount code just for my followers, so you definitely should give it a try. I’ll speak about this later in this post.

The box came with 2 bubble baths, a scented candle (Summer Fruits), one hand-made soap, bath salts and a gift of an extra bubble bath.

I always light up the scented candle in the evening so it leaves a great smell in the apartment and relaxes everyone before going to bed. It’s been a week already since I use it every evening so it lasts for quite a while.

The bubble baths were lovely too and left my skin feel extremely smoothly, even the following day. It’s like I didn’t need moisturiser at all.

The bath salts are perfect if you want to enjoy a hot bath, but I also enjoy, after a long day of work, putting them in a recipient with warm water and put my feet in while I watch an episode on Netflix. That’s Hygge right there!

The hand-made soap is being used by everyone at home at the moment, every time they wash their hands and everyone is commenting how good it smells, and it doesn’t leave your skin dry afterwards, which happens with many other soaps.

So in general it’s a really great box, the products are not tested on animals, everything is 100% hand-made, it’s vegan friendly and 30% less expensive than buying these same products at Lush.

If you want to give it a try you can use my discount: TIGERDISCOUNT and get your first box for £7.99 instead of £10.00.

Catastrophe Cosmetic|Lush Product Review

Don’t worry, the experience wasn’t a catastrophe at all. A few weeks ago, 3 to be more precise, I decided to try a calming and moisturising fresh face mask from Lush.

Capture

The Catastrophe Cosmetic face mask is packed with blueberries, calamine and chamomile, rose, and almond oils to soothe and soften the skin.

You just need to smooth a generous layer of this mask onto clean skin and leave for 10 to 15 minutes. I use cold water (you can also use lukewarm water, but avoid hot water) to remove the mask while massaging my face. You can feel a softer skin straight away.

The ingredients:

Blueberries are rich in vitamins and minerals that protect and rejuvenate, helping to repair sun damage and give you a gorgeous glow.

Calamine is soothing, antiseptic powder derived from natural mineral deposits and ferric oxide. It has a high concentration of zinc oxide – an incredibly active material that has the ability to reflect UV rays. This means calamine is often used as (and in) sunscreen to protect and care for the skin.

calamine

 

Chamomile blue oil is used to improve the condition and appearance of the skin, hair and scalp, as well as for its soothing and calming perfume which blends beautifully with other essential oils.

Irish moss has a softening, soothing feel on the skin and hair and a very gentle cleansing effect.

I’m going to review a different mask every month, but for now, this one is definitely IMG_0297approved and recommended! The only thing I would say is that with a use by date you feel a bit rushed to use it all up before it expires. It’s great for me because it will make me stop being lazy and take care of my skin more often, but some people might not like it.

 

If you’ve tried this mask, please share your experience on the comments’ section. If you have any facial mask to recommend please feel free to share it too.

Brightening Body Scrub Recipe

Sugar scrubs are one of my favourites and are also a natural way to exfoliate your skin 5e1417e1ec0f6d519a312ce7eabe0e74with little to no cost.

The coconut oil will seal your skin, remove bacteria that causes larger pores, and moisturize so when you walk out of the shower you won’t need to apply moisturizer at all. It saves a hell out of time!

The sugar actually helps hydrate your skin, will help create younger looking skin, and exfoliate naturally. All important things after the winter.

Adding in fresh lemon juice and zest is great for clearing away any dirt that has built up over the winter as well. Not to mention the lemon leaves a fresh and bright smell while using the scrub.

To make this scrub you will need:

Ingredients:
1/2 cup pure organic cane sugaraf81f3e016969ec478312fd365613f11
1/2 cup unrefined virgin coconut oil 
1 lemon zested and juiced

It is easy to add just about any essential oil of your choice to give an even brighter scent to the scrub.

Items you will need to create this:
1 kitchen or mixing bowl
1 spoon for mixing
Glass containers to store the scrub in
1 zester/grater for lemon

Place all the ingredients in the mixing bowl and combine them. That is it. Very simple and easy to do.

Once you combine everything  then fill the glass containers with the scrub to be stored in a cool place. The oil will separate some in warm environments, but all you have to do is give it a good shake or stir before you use it.

Do you make any beauty items yourself? I would love to hear about your experiences or tips!
