Mandara Spa

I have been trying out some lovely products from Mandara Spa recently and though I'll update you guys about them. I have a Amber Heaven Moisturising Bath Essence(£9), a Honeymilk Dream Nourishing Body Butter(£10.50) and a Citrus Spice Exfoliating Sugar Scrub(£10.50)

Their products come in various flavours and scents and are meant to re-create a pampering and comforting spa experience in your own home, at your convenience and more importantly, at a much more reasonable price. 

The product packaging is lush and coordinates with the range names pretty well. The Honeymilk body butter, packaged in a caramel and cream container makes it look delicious! I love the dark purple and gold combination of the Amber Heaven range - simply stunning. 

The Amber Heaven Moisturising Bath Essence is pretty comforting and relaxing to use. It is not obnoxiously scented but has this subtle woody and chocolaty smell that fills the bath gradually. 

It is pretty much like aromatherapy in a huge bottle. 

It contains calming jasmine flower milk to condition the skin and I can very clearly smell Sandalwood which I love as a scent. It foams quite nicely too and I like to reserve this as a little treat for the bath time, although for £9, it is ridiculously under-priced. 

Coming to a more summery range, the Citrus Spice Exfoliating Sugar Scrub is perfect if you're feeling tired or blue. It really peps me up and has this energising feel to it. Containing scents such as orange, ginger and nutmeg, it is like a whiff of fresh air amongst my other bath products. 

It is highly effective at exfoliating any dead skin or dry areas of the body and I love to use this all over my arms and legs as I've been suffering from dry areas there recently. I have seen a tremendous improvement at how smooth my skin looks after a few uses of this. 

Again, the quantity of 350 grams is massive and has been lasting me quite a while. 

And finally, the Honeymilk Dream Nourishing Body Butter is a treat to use right after a shower or the bath as that's how its best absorbed into the skin in my opinion. The texture of this is quite fluffy, very much like whipped cream. 

It gets absorbed into the skin quite easily due to its texture and seals in the moisture for quite long. It is a bit heavy to use during the day in the summer, due to the inclusion of sweet almond oil and other butters, so I currently like to use it as a night cream and it's quite effective for that purpose.

It goes without saying that the product smells good enough to eat. If you're someone who likes sweet and comforting bath and body products, then definitely try out something from this range. 

Overall, the products are reasonably priced, come in huge quantities, are of pretty good quality and something you should try out if you're wanting to create a home-spa experience.
