body scrub: Moringa

Mmmmmmm... of course the first thing that comes to my mind after opening a lid isssss... the attar! Which reminds me of: lily of the valley + lilac + jasmine combined together. But it actually is Moringa Pterygosperma: "a flowering tree that is common to areas in Indian and the Himalayas. It is commonly known as the Horseradish Tree as the roots of this tree have a flavour of horseradish." It is rich in vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, protein, potassium, calcium and antioxidant. (to read more about Moringa -> click)
The scrub has a butter consistence and petite spots that are blue, orange and peach. I wouldn't say it is the best body scrub I ever had, however it's good and worth trying!

face scrub: Ginger & Sakura

This scrub completely seduced me with its smell; it's very sweet, flowery, fairy-tale-like and reminds me of the powder lollipop, but there's a little of ginger scent in it. It is adorable and makes me feel better after usage... I would certainly eat it if it wasn't a cosmetic! The spots are very petit, so it can be used as a daily scrub. However, for a deeper clearage you should choose a scrub with thicker spots. Definitely, it's gonna be one of my favourites! <3

I have to make a confession...

I am totally obsessed with cinnamon. Both in terms of taste and smell. It is impossible to replace it with a different spice. Therefore, I toured all drugstores, perfumeries and natural cosmetics shops in search of cinnamon perfume. Nothing, nothing and nothing again. Is it possible at all, that the world could exist without cinnamon perfume??? All perfumes and toilet waters, with the composition of cinnamon, were dominated  by stronger and overpowering scent, which meant that my beloved and desired aroma was detectable. I was truly feeling blue.
As a consolation, quite by chance, when I was ordering cosmetics online, my eyes fished just one among hundreds of others, c i n n a m o n   s h a m p o o ! We fell in love from the first use. Of course, not only the aroma captivated me (mmmmmmmm<3), but also a sensational composition of the product, we meet with an absence of harsh detergents such as SLS, SLeS or ALS, however, there is MLS- one of the mildest detergents.

[Ingredients are: Aqua with infusions of: Organic Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Corylus Avellana Seed Oil, Cinnamomum Zeylanicum Bark Oil, Organic Citrus Grandis Fruit Extract, Eugenia Caryophyllus Seed Extract, Vanilla Planifolia Flower Extract, Cinnamomum Cassia Bark Extract, Magnesium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Lauryl Glucoside, Decyl Glucoside, Glycol Distearate, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzoic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Sodium Chloride, Parfum, Citric Acid]

It quickly became a darling of my hair. They are soft, shiny, well cleaned, and the scent lasts throughout the day. It is produced by the Russian company Pervoe Reshenie (It means 'the first choice'), whose cosmetics are certified of organic ingredients.
I sincerely recommend it to anyone who enjoys spicy seasonings x
