Hello my lovelies!
Tonight I would like to introduce you to a brand I discovered recently: MAMA NATURE. It is a natural skincare brand and all products are hand prepared to order. The founders believe that natural is best and they care passionately about our environment. They want to continue making a real difference and their philosophy is simple - to improve the quality of life of their customers through their natural products. I've been using Mama nature products for over a month and I am very pleased with the results.
MAMA NATURE PURE ARGAN HAIR 120ml* £20.95 link
INFO: PureArgan Hair is 100% pure certified organic cold pressed unrefined Argan Oil of Morocco and contains no additives, preservatives or synthetic ingredients of any kind. Pure, natural and organic Argan Oil has been used in Morocco for centuries to nourish and protect hair. It is great for applying as a hair mask or for using as a conditioner and adds a beautiful and healthy sheen to hair, leaving it feeling silky, soft and smooth. It is great for split ends, dry hair, frizzy hair, brittle hair and for detangling hair. It can also be used to style hair (curls, waves etc.).
It is a great natural alternative to conditioners and other hair products filled with chemicals and synthetic ingredients. Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the Argan tree, endemic to Morocco, that is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties. Our Argan Oil is a cold, first pressed oil, produced using a mixture of traditional and modern techniques to ensure a high quality product. No chemicals are used in the process.
IMPORTANT: All Argan Oil sold today is produced by a women's cooperative that shares the profits among the local women of the Berber tribe. The cooperative has established an ecosystem reforestation project so that the supply of Argan Oil will not run out and the income that is currently supporting the women will not disappear. The money is providing health care and education to the local women, and supporting the entire community as a whole.
MY OPINION: My hair is very damaged so I always look for products that are meant to hydrate, repair and protect. I've heard about Argan Oil and its amazing properties before, so I was very excited to try this treatment. My hair is oily close to the roots and extremely dry at the ends so I only applied small amount of the oil to the bottom half of my hair. After the first use I noticed that my damaged hair was looking much better. I haven't tried using this oil as an intensive treatment allover my hair, but I left it on my dry ends overnight and it made a big difference. I am always scared to put oils on my hair in case it ends up greasy, but with this oil there was no greasy residue. I really liked the effects and I will keep using this treatment.
MAMA NATURE YOUNG AT HEART ANTI WRINKLE NIGHT CREAM 100ml* £30.95 link
INFO: Young at Heart Natural Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream is a very effective natural skin cream that contains coconut oil, aloe vera, shea butter, almond oil, avocado oil, rosehip oil and a unique blend of essential oils to rejuvinate your skin to give it a more youthful appearance. Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Aloe Vera are all renowned for the beneficial and wonderful effects they have on the skin. Lavender, calendula and chamomile aid in skin cell regeneration and reduce inflammation. Frankincense, Geranium and Ylang Ylang balance dry/oily skin and firm skin tone.
MY OPINION: First of all, you get a lot of product for your money. Most face creams come in 30-50ml jars, with this one you get 100ml! I usually apply face creams lightly because I don't want to use them up to fast, but when I seen this big jar I decided to apply generous amounts on my face and neck :) It smells really nice, mostly of rosehip oil and calendula. Like I mentioned before, all Mama Nature products are made to order, so when I opened the jar, the fragrance was amazing! I could tell that it was freshly made.
I use it at night after applying an anti wrinkle serum or my new favourite- Antipodes Joyous serum.
It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin soft, firm and hydrated. My skin is normal/combination, but sometimes it goes extremely oily and I need to stop using some of my rich night creams. When my face went through it's oily stage last month I was still using the Young At Heart night cream and my skin responded very well to this formulation. I also noticed that my neck is looking much better. I didn't pay too much attention to my neck before and neglected it, but now I will definitely keep using generous amounts of cream on my neck and chest to keep the area firm and soft :) The closer I get to my 25th birthday the more obsessed I am getting with anti wrinkle creams. I really hope that my skin will stay young longer if I keep using natural anti wrinkle products like this one.
