Pink Lotus 

  
The Spa Ceylon Royal Indulgence Spa and Store was unveiled a few days ago and I was able to attend the event under the media banner. Every invitee and media personnel were gifted with a limited edition gift pack so here’s a look at mine; 

The gift pack included the Pink Lotus collection which was launched just under a month ago. 

  
As always, the packaging is just as lovely and the gift bag can be reused in multiple ways. 

 
   
    
    
  
I’m not quite sure if I like the fragrance; lotus flowers are a bit hard to get used to and have an extremely strong scent to them. I did give the cleanser, soap bar and liquid silk shine mist a whiff but I kinda sat back with a slight headache. Maybe this isn’t for me but I am willing to give some of the products a go before I pass them into someone who may like it more than I do.

Organisational DIY’s

Sometimes I tend to do things without realizing. Like organising. Yes, I organise my things without me realising and I actually quite like it when it happens. I noticed the other day I had organised a few bits and bobs and thought I should share the tips with you all.

I had this little rectangular basket in one of the bathroom cupboards. I didn’t realise that I had stored all my little sample tit bits and travel sized lotions, hand creams and shower gels in it. So here’s a step by step guide as to how I re-organised them just for you all to see. Oh, I’ve got a mini candle in there too, a face exfoliating thing (I think I’ve used it only once or twice), an extra travel toothbrush, hand sanitizer, a soap bar and a tub of Vaseline. I find that they all fit inside quite well and was easily stored without looking too shabby.

Now, this I know I put together with a lot of thought because I do value all the products I’ve bought and also received by Spa Ceylon. Yes, I have quite a few things and yes, I do use nearly each and every one of them. On the far right I’ve placed all the hair care products in this floral jewellery holder. The middle includes all the foot care products like my favourite foot mist with peppermint! The left holds the two foot soak tubs and the centre front part holds travel sized shower gels, a body scrub and a compress which I am yet to use with one of the bath and body oils.

Now this is something I’ve made use of instead of just hoarding it somewhere in my closet. I got a gift set from Victoria’s Secret and the products came in this vibrant pink heart-shaped case. Once the products were used up, I didn’t quite know what to do with it so here’s how I’ve organised a few other essentials of mine. I’ve got an extra face scrub in there along with a scented candle (lavender my favourite!), my L’Oreal eyes and lips makeup remover, and my lavender bath salts. See how pretty they look, all organised together 🙂

I hope this somewhat gave you all an idea as to how every day items can be used to organise other bits and bops around your space.

Cardamom Rose Hand Butter review

20150107_113303

 

Yet another review, yes, sorry about that but I feel like it’s about time I talk about this hand butter because I love it so much!

I’m not a hand or body butter type of person to be honest. I do not and have not ever owned any hand and body butters before getting this one as a gift. I wasn’t too thrilled about it until I opened the tub and gave it a whiff. This is the Cardamom Rose Hand Butter by Spa Ceylon Ayurveda and it was originally released during the Christmas season of 2013. They came out with it again end of last year so I believe it’s still up for grab online and in stores if you’re interested.

So as the name suggests, this hand butter smells of rose and cardamom. Not a usual combination of scents but I tell you, it works and it works just great. It’s a great balance between to the floral and the spicy and the texture is just right too. It might feel a bit too heavy at first and when you begin to apply it all over your hands but as you work it in, it really sinks in well. I have been working it extra on my nails and fingers because I feel like that is something most tend to ignore and instead work on the palms.

Product description –  A rich naturally revitalizing hand care treatment with pure mango butter to restore moisture to fatigued skin. Vitamin-rich sweet almond and virgin coconut help nourish , soften and smooth very dry and rough hands, kokum butter helps preserve youthfulness, protecting day and night.

Do I feel a difference after using this overnight? Yeah I actually do. My hands feel softer and there is a slight scent of rose and cardamom that lingers too which took my completely by surprise the very first time I used it. I also like to apply and reapply this during the day whenever I feel like it. Just because I want to!

Would I repurchase it? I probably would… yes, I think I actually would.
