As you know by now I love brewing up stuff in my kitchen. Those who think it is just food, are wrong. I love making DIY beauty products. Mainly because I know exactly what is in them. Obviously since I love doing that so much I have a stock of products that I use. Unfortunately it is not an infinitive stock and I run out of products quite regularly. I always go to the store with the plan of being in and out, but when in the store I just cannot help but to look around a little. Luckily I did, because I found a new product line, called Beauty Kitchen, that I have fallen for head first.
Normally I buy just one product since it was not a pure product. This time I was so convinced it was great I bought a whole bag. A detox bag to be exact. The products and the entire line are about knowing what is in your products. So no weird names on the label that you do not want to google because you will develop phobias. The products are made out of pure products such as coconut oil, shea butter et cetera. Each product is mixed with those healthy oils and/or butters to give you the best result, without any additional cr*p. Sorry to say it like that.
The detox bag I bought is from Beauty Kitchen and contained a ‘’Facial Konjac Sponge’’, ‘’Abyssinian Oil Facial Concentrate’’, ‘’Abyssinian Oil Beauty Balm’’ and ‘’Pink & Pure Himalayan Salt (not on their website anymore)’’. The instructions in the bag were to for one week gently scrub your face with the sponge each morning and afterwards massage the facial concentrate in. At night wash your face with the balm by massaging it in and afterwards scrubbing with the sponge. The salt was to take a bath with for 15 minutes. *
I managed to keep to the face washing twice a day. I have to tell you the sponge is so soft, it is wonderful. Also the five minutes it takes to scrub your face in the morning are a lovely little me-time at the start of the day. At night the same, it works super calming, at least for me. I did not put the facial concentrate on each morning because I am happy with my current day cream, however I did use it on days that I stayed in and it is very moisturizing. The same with the beauty balm.
I have also tried out the painful Baking Soda Facial which you can read all about here.
With the salt I made a scrub because I do not like taking a bath. I mixed it with my regular scrub oils and put some of the facial concentrate in as well. My skin felt incredibly soft after using it. I cannot immediately say if it is such a big difference from my normal sugar scrub routine, that is something time will have to tell me. My face however is now constantly properly moisturized and feeling really taken care of. I am very happy that I did not go home with just one product. Now I have a bag containing everyday simple treat yourself products. I can not wait to fill it with more of Beauty Kitchen products.
Update 01 October 2018: I’m still in love with the beauty kitchen line. Especially the salt, the facial oil and the sponge. The beauty balm I only use when I’m having a day in. My skin has also responded really well to the products. No irritations or break outs at all, just shiny, healthy, happy skin.
A simple way to treat yourself everyday, without having to spend hours in the kitchen yourself.
