I started this new year with a beautiful gift from a very special person. She is very talented, always preoccupied by details, making gorgeous designs for her soaps, unique packagings for her lipsticks and not only…what one can see on her blog is only a part of her work and passion.
Maja is beautiful and you can see it from what comes from her hands and from her desire to share it with us. She sent me 2 soaps, 1 lipstick and 2 testers for body lotion and face cream. I couldn’t wait for the moment when I could use her soaps (I received them in the evening, and I wanted to take some pictures before using them). I had the honour to receive her Natalie and Impulsive soaps, both stunning! Natalie soap was a 100% natural soap, made of goat milk and clays(Cambrian, Red, Yellow) and natural colorants (alkanet and urucum powder). In reality this soap is even more beautiful! As essential oils, Maja used lavender, peppermint and rosemary which make a nice combination.
Impulsive is one the most beautiful soaps made by Maja: unique and special through its design, I couldn’t decide between using or not, for me it was like a ‘portrait’ soap which should be kept and never touched. It contains silk( wow!)and goat milk, and has an interesting fragrance.
The creams Maja sent were also very good. Made only of good quality ingredients( and black cumin oil!) the face cream had a light texture, providing a long term hydration during the day. The body milk gave a silky touch to the skin, which we all love.
I have to thank Maja for sending me a lip balm too! Where the other products will be quickly finished, this one will last some months. I use it every day and I like the idea of remembering that it comes from a special person. The recipe is lovely and I adore its natural colour (it contains also alkanet) and fragrance. It’s a pleasure to use it!
I really felt like a ‘diva’ using these products. Thank you, Maja, for being a friend and for all your support during this soap adventure and, of course, thank you for sending me these wonderful products!
