One of the positive things about blogging is getting in touch with people who have the same interests as yourself. Sini is of one of those bloggers. She has a beautiful blog, full of recipes for all kinds of products you would never think it’s possible to make them home like chlorella cleansing bars, hair rinse, oat cream, foundation, mascara, lipstick.
I always get amazed about everything she makes, about the ingredients she uses, about the large variety of creams/lotions/ syrups for every single problem. More than that, Sini is very preoccupied about healthy food and from time to time she also posts interesting recipes.
Last month I received from her a beautiful package made of: foot bath bombs, lavender sugar scrub hearts, hand crocheted cotton pads, chocolate lip balm, a soap and a shampoo. I was so happy to discover a part of what Signe can make. I am a big fan of all homemade products but lately, due to my laziness, I didn’t make anything else than soaps, so the scrubs were the first I used the same day I received the package. I really liked them and after exfoliating, you feel your skin healthy and glowing.
The chocolate lip balm was also something I was eager to try first because I have never made/used a chocolate balm before. The nourishing blend of ingredients such as avocado oil, cocoa butter, was, dark chocolate and lavender eo sounds really good and since I received it, I use it every day. I like the subtle chocolate colour and the hint given by lavender eo.
Clays are not only one of my favorite additions to soap but Signe’s too. The soap she sent me is made of 3 different clays (green French, white and pink Argiletz) which add natural colour and plenty and silky glide. The smooth lather, the sensual scent (tangerine eo), the delicate feeling it leaves on your skin, the beautiful design …all these translate how good Signe is in making soaps. I can proudly confirm how pleased I was using this soap.
Let me tell you how much I admire soapers who make their own shampoos. I have made some too, but after several months of using them, I quit and started using some other natural ways of cleaning my hair. My latest experiment is sodium bicarbonate or no-poo shampoo. I started very enthusiastically and it worked during the cold season. But with the summer, I didn’t like it anymore so I had to look for another solution for my hair. Then I received the shampoo from Finland. This shampoo really works on my hair. Maybe it is all about the ingredients ( coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, castor oil, cacao butter, shea butter, lemon juice, chamomile flowers, lemon eo, tea tree eo), maybe it’s about the formula used…but this shampoo is really something I have to make myself very soon. I have no words to thank Signe for this beautiful shampoo and for everything she sent me (sad that the foot bath bombs didn’t survive the journey to Belgium).
It feels so grateful, Sini, to know you through your products!
