Received this bunch of goodies from last nights showcase. I loveeeeee Spa Ceylon and this goody bag made me so excited!
So I received a lemongrass and grapefruit knees and elbows hydrating balm, white tuberose hand cream, and five samples of other top rated products – white rose facial cleansing cream, green mint cooling foot relief, de stress relaxing body cleanser, cardamom rose body lotion and the ceylon tea and ylang body butter.
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.
The collection includes three luxury fragrance sachets that uniquely combine natural volcanic minerals with pure essential oils to infuse your living spaces with rich natural aromas. I love their jasmine range so this was a change for me as I haven’t previously purchased anything of their products in the Cardamom Rose range. However, I was surprised when I found myself loving this fragrance as well. It doesn’t come across as strong and overwhelming as you’d think and I suppose that’s one reason why I like it. Each sachet ingredients are individually blended to ensure the natural well-being benefits of the essential oils are preserved well and truly. They are meant to soothe, calm and relax the mind, body and soul. I’m yet to start using them so let’s see if the sachets live up to what their supposed to do.
The sachet and gift box are adorned with royal insignia inspired by the Royal Kandyan courts of ancient Ceylon. This is something you’ll notice in many of the products by Spa Ceylon. If you want to know more about the brand and their products, check out their site.
How To Use
Remove cellophane covers and place sachets in suitable locations, preferably close to air vents, inside pillow cases, in wardrobes between clothes, suitcases or under drawer liners. To refresh the aroma add a few drops of the Spa Ceylon Essential Oil Blend to each sachet as required.
