Julia goes shopping in the promised land

Julia in Tel Aviv

Freshly back from Israel, Julia, one of our associates, decided to share her shopping experience and some product testing in the promised land. This is how her tale will be remembered.

Laline Dea Sea salt body scrub

When you step inside the Laline store, you are surrounded with a lot of products you can try. The enviroment there is so inspiering and the smell in there... Oh my it's like the garden of heaven. I tried some soaps and scrubs and really took my time. After trying almost everything, I decided to buy a scrub with Dead Sea salt and nourishing vanilla patchouli oils. The smell is just amazing and your skin becomes so soft after use. For more comfort, I bought a wooden scoop along.

Ahava Essential Day Moisturizer

Another great purchase was the Ahava Essential Day Moisturizer. I got it with a discount at the airport in Tel Aviv. It really makes the skin moisturized, and what is really important to me is that it doesn't obstruct the pores. The texture is very light and absorbs into the skin very well.

Sabon body lotion

My next stop was the Sabon's luxury body and bath fragrance shop. There I bought a body lotion with scents of patchouli lavender and vanilla. Yes I'm into patchouli. There should be no doubt about it! The bottle is made of glass and comes with a cap and batcher . Texture is light and absorbs into the skin quite fast, and it doesn't leave any sticky feeling, gives a nice scent to the skin. It is free of paraben and mineral oils.

Yes To hand cream

Last but not least was the hand cream from Yes To. This hand cream is my all time favorite! It is made from natural ingredients, it is doesn't contain paraben, petroleum and SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate). You learn a lot about chemistry from watching +Breaking Bad. The feeling after my first time use was radiant and fresh. I am using it several times a day to keep my hand skin soft and nourished.

Voila! That was Julia's trip to the promised land and the first of many more to come.
