DHC Q10 Mini Set Review

DHC is a Japanese brand that is mostly famous for its Deep Cleansing Oil. I’ve seen people rave about it on Reddit, so I wanted to find out what’s so special about it. 🙂

The DHC brand was founded in 1970s by Yoshida-san. He connected traditional Japanese herbology and skincare properties of Spanish olive oil. The brand follows the “wabi-sabi” philosophy – it believes in “finding beauty in imperfection” and loving your skin just the way it is, together with all of its imperfections.

I bought this mini set from a friend who travelled to Japan. You can find it on Amazon (here) but in Japan, it cost around €7. This plastic, see-through pouch contains the Deep Cleansing Oil, the Mild Soap, the Q10 Lotion, and the Q10 Cream, all in mini sizes. There should be enough product for one month’s use or so, but like always, your mileage may vary.

Oriflame Frosted Berry Cake Bubble Bath

Sometimes, all you need after a long day is a fragrant bubble bath to relax. Winter months were pretty stressful so I often needed a nice, long bath to take the edge off. A colleague gave me an Oriflame bubble bath that I was more than happy to use. I suppose this was a limited-edition type of product so it might not be available at the time you’re reading this.

Oriflame Frosted Berry Cake Bubble Bath

Bring the cosy Christmas feeling into your bathtub as you relax with the wonderfully foamy and indulgent fruity-gourmand scented Frosted Berry Cake Bubble Bath. Soap-free, pH-balanced formula cleanses without drying out your skin.

Nelipot Mladizhen and Shverkaj

I’m always on the lookout for natural beauty and personal hygiene products. For example, I don’t believe that toothpaste formulas (any formulas, really) need to contain sodium lauryl sulfate in order to clean our teeth thoroughly. I don’t deny that “lab-made” ingredients provide some safety that essential oils can’t but if I have a choice, I’ll choose a more natural product. When natural personal hygiene meets small business like Nelipot, I prickle my ears.

Nelipot is a Slovenian brand that came into focus with their deodorant Nelipot Basic. A crucial element in their initial country-wide success seems to be due to the owners’ appearance in the television show called Štartaj, Slovenija! on the Pop TV channel, some time in 2015 or 2016. Fast-forward to the present, Nelipot products are sold at Spar and on Nelipot’s own website.

At the BBMU conference, I met the brand owners and had a lovely chat with them. As with (other) indie brands, I appreciate their end consumer-oriented business and the fact that they started making products for themselves first, before making them available to a wider audience.

The two products they gave me are a sample of their Mladizhen deodorant and the Shverkaj tooth powder.

The Body Shop Body Butter review

I think I wouldn’t be wrong in saying that The Body Shop is best known for its Body Butters. I’ve already tried their Shea Butter one many moons ago and it left a good impression on me. That’s what I was most excited about upon hearing the news that The Body Shop would finally arrive to Slovenia. More body butter options? Bring them on!

I was lucky enough to receive their Frosted Berries Body Butter in mini size at the BBMU conference in November 2011. I was very much interested in how it would work, whether the formula was still as good as it was five years ago. As for the British Rose Body Butter, I received a Christmas gift from The Body Shop Slovenia (thank you!). This gift was a selection of mini-sized products such as lipstick, face mask, serum, cream and perfume.
