Background: if you want to bring something cosmetic and authentic from Thailand, you will be doomed to endlessly choose between dissimilar phials with all the whitening, Thai-Korean beauty mass market, of course, scarlet gels :)
So I, thinking of ten different cushions with exactly the same swatch, swam into Boots, a British network pharmacy, where I met my new cosmetic love - the most fragrant care brand in the world - Sabai Arom.
In the post we will talk about body cream, hands, massage oil, scrub and a set of miniatures for “camping” aromatherapy. All the details under the cut :)
The brand has many different rulers, all of them are united by a natural composition, pleasant and easy to use textures, and, of course, incomparable aromas. I will talk about products from the Coconut de Samui, Jasmine Ritual and Urban Happiness collections.
I’ll start with Coconut de Samui products - I have body cream and massage / bath oil. I want to immediately say about aromas: this is not the coconut that pours you when you open a jar of cream from The Body Shop - the smell is incredibly delicate, warm, first you feel the enveloping nutty spirit, and then delicate coconut notes come in - sweet, slightly “cake” »Aroma.Sabai Arom So Body Cream ... Coconut Body Cream
Sabai Arom cosmetics has a more than 90% natural composition, and if you pay attention to the presence of oil products in the composition of what you diligently smear on your skin - you are here) Specifically, So ... Coconut cream contains 99% natural ingredients. Composition from the manufacturer:
The product is in a 200 ml bottle, it is plastic, with a screw cap. I like the packaging design - it's nice to put it on the table and take the tube in hand.
The cream is thick, quite nutritious, but it is absorbed very quickly and does not leave a film, only the aroma :)
The caring properties, in my opinion, are four - if the skin is very dry, there may not be enough moisture, in all other cases it is a very comfortable remedy. Another disadvantage is a decent expense, again because of the texture, you do not have time to properly smear the cream on the body, but it has already been absorbed and you have to add new portions. The skin after use is soft, without films and sticky layers; the cumulative effect of the cream was not observed. If I meet this remedy somewhere, I will definitely buy it again.
Duration of use: every day for a month
Price: about 450 rubles at a discount in BootsBath / Massage Oil Sabai Arom Summer Breeze Bath & Massage Oil
98.5% oil consists of natural ingredients; composition from the manufacturer:
The yellow oil is packed in neat plastic bottles, decorated with a leaf from a coconut shell. Again about the fragrance: it is divine (seriously, I'm not a fan of coconuts, I usually never buy remedies with such fragrance, but this series is a completely different matter). The volume of the bottle is 200 ml. Consumption is quite economical: 3-4 generous drops are enough for one broad back :)
About the properties and sensations of use: the oil is soft, absorbs well, but not too quickly, fully corresponds to its massage status. After the procedure, there is no nasty film, only the effect of oily skin). No allergic reactions or just a desire to take a shower soon.
The product is "multifunctional", i.e. this coconut oil can also be poured into the bathtub. Oils for shower / bath for me remain a strange contraption, I do not really understand them, but as an experiment I used this instead of salt with ethers. I poured a lot more oil than I usually use for massage, but the smell dissolves in the air anyway. But then the liquid itself, of course, does not disappear anywhere, and hangs on the surface of the water with yellow spots. When you get into this “soup”, you yourself become covered with a greasy film, from which the sensations do not improve. Verdict: I don’t know if bath oil actually softens hard water, but it definitely makes the process less enjoyable :(
Summing up, I liked the butter, but only as a massage. Of course, it is not terribly necessary for everyone, but as a pleasant gift (including for oneself) it will suit perfectly.
Duration of use: for massage - 2-3 times a week for a month; as bath oil - once.
Price: about 700 rubles in BootsSabai Arom Jasmine Ritual Sooth & Smooth Body Exfoliator
The scrub is very dense and fragrant, placed in a plastic jar with an aluminum lid, minus the packaging - paper labels: the jar lives in the shower, the papers threaten to get wet and lose their appearance. Again about the smell: very strong and very jasmine) If you can survive it and even enjoy it like me, then you will like it, if not, it can easily “strangle”.
Composition 97.5% organic:
Now about the use: the consistency is thick, but it is typed quite freely, it does not roll off the hands and does not splatter during use. I would call the average consumption, but objectively, 200 ml cans with regular use will not last long (after a month I have less than half left). The scrub is delicate, the skin does not hurt at all, but the effect may not be enough for someone. Granules as such are almost not felt - well, very gentle. Cons: expensive for a scrub, the expense is not the most economical, to find in Russia for adequate money will not be easy.
Pros: very pleasant to use, gives a good effect, perfectly cheers up :)
Duration of use: 3-5 times a week for a month
Price: about 1100 rubles in BootsSabai Arom Jasmine Ritual Hand Cream
95% natural composition:
Cream with a dense texture, reminiscent of a wonderful cream L'Occitane with shea, but this one is less heavy. It is very well absorbed, so there is no need to “dry” the pens before picking up papers or a telephone. Again a strong, enveloping jasmine scent. The cream has good nutritional properties. I think that he may not save much weathered skin (but who knows!), But he copes with simpler tasks (nourish and moisturize) perfectly.
I have in an iron tube, but it seems to be an old version or a limit, now the product is poured into ordinary plastic packaging. There the lid opens, in my case it is unscrewed. The volume is quite large - 75 g, consumption on the contrary is small, which makes it actually a great contender in terms of price and quality. As always, there is one minus - it is not clear how to buy it in Russia without a 100% margin.
Duration of use: 2-3 times a day for a month
Price: 420 rubles in BootsUrban Happiness Aromatic Miniature Set
I bought this product exclusively as a pampering, it was very nice packed :) Again, my respect for the design of Sabai Arom packaging, no matter what anyone says, the aesthetic pleasure of the product is important.
What it is and how it looks: a set (mine is called Untie the knot), consisting of three miniatures: 1) in order to go to sleep 2) antistress 3) and another bottle with the inscription "smile". Okay, actually this is not a set of antidepressants and sleeping pills, but three babies from a mixture of essential oils in glass cones with scooters. Each bottle contains 3 ml of various alcohol-based esters, the composition is 99% natural:
# 1 Sleep
Lavender, Champaka, Ylang Ylang and Bergamot Essential Oils
# 2 De-Tense
A mixture of essential oils of purple ginger, turmeric, clove buds and lemongrass
# 3 Smile
Peppermint, Basil, Rosemary and Black Pepper Essential Oils
All this charm is packed in an aluminum case and equipped with detailed annotation.
In the store, I managed to test the fragrances from my set - then they just did not seem repulsive to me and I decided to buy. Now I can say that it’s nice to use them, a bottle that promises to save you from stress, I carry with me to work and I smear it with pleasure (colleagues, it seems I haven’t complained yet), a purple roller with the inscription Sleep lives on the bedside table and is used by everyone evening - relaxes and pleasantly cools the skin. Sleep turned out to be the most “practical” - if it would be possible to update the supply of Sabai Arom, then I would love to buy this roller in the full-size version.
The last miniature is used by me so far to a lesser extent, but, I think, you just need to start carrying it with you.
Yes, I have a feeling that they really work :) Well, even if not, they smell and look nice enough to just not spare the money spent. In the end, every girl will probably have a couple of cosmetic things that were bought just because they are pretty :)
Duration of use: every day for a month
Price: about 900 rubles in Boots
If you could read it to the end, then thanks for your patience :) And I hope that my review was useful!
