Mastic Spa is a greek skincare company with natural cosmetics based on....mastic!! Their products always catched my eye when shopping but I didn't have the chance to try them out until recently. Let me tell you my opinion about some of their products :
Moisturant - 24h moisturising cream
In the begining I was quite skeptical about trying this product, as the description claims it is for normal to dry skins and mine is normal to oily with a tendency to break out. I have been using it for quite a long time now and, honestly, I think it is one of the best face creams I have ever tried (and I have tried a lot!!). It contains mastic and greek olive oil and it is addressed to people 27+ (ughhh...I'm in that group :P).
It has a divine smell. I did a little research online but couldn't find anything about mastic and aromatherapy, but I'm quite sure there must be something. It lifts spirit the moment you smell it.
While using it, I've noticed that breakouts almost stopped and my skin looked and felt better. It has a light texture (it reminds me of mousse). It's paraben free, which is a + for me.
Would I purchase that product? I already did!
Snatch Up Your Kiss Lipbalm
This was my least favorite product. It has a delicious smell, but it's not as nourishing as I would like a lipbalm to be. It has a light texture and it gives a glossy finish on your lips. It contains beeswax and cocoa butter. Also, I found the packaging a little hard to use ( I had trouble putting the lid back on). I might bought it if the price was a bit lower.
Ok this product didn't have me at once, but it definitely deserves a second chance. First time I tried it in winter and I wasn't impressed. Then, I gave it another try now that the weather is warm here in Greece. It is not a super moisturising cream ( after all it is a lotion ), but,in my opinion, it's great for the summer when you don't need something super moisturising. It also has a slight tint in it which makes my skin look a bit tanned (yeah!!). The smell is gooood too!
Cocoa Wine Scrub
As you might have guessed, this product contains wine...duuhh!! :P It is a very very moisturising body butter, which leaves the skin amazingly smooth and good smelling. I didn't know how to use it in the beginning, because it contains small beads, but I just followed the instructions and everything worked out fine! You have to massage it for a while and then you have the smoothest skin you can ever get. It is a great product for elbows.
You can find Mastic Spa products in beauty stores or online here. Check the site often because they have great offers and discounts!!
Let me know if you have tried any Mastic Spa products or which is your favorite moisturiser!
See you soon!
ps: The products were sent to me by the company.
