L:A Bruket Koriander/Svartpeppar Conditioner Review

432647-b86113b4bbe64e0d8fac7217f2bd4d6c

Pros:

Packed with good ingredients – almond oil, vitamin B, cilantro and blackpepper.

Cons:

I still need to use extra products for my split ends after use.

More:

I have to admit that I was sceptical to this conditioner – as much, as I love L:A Bruket and their natural ingredients – my hair is so dry nothing but hardcore chemicals can help it. I know, that stating that one loves chemicals in anything is almost despicable since one is supposed to be into all things natural and eco. But honestly my frizz needs some things that nature alone can not offer. So I was pleasantly surprised by this conditioner when it actually took great care of my scalp and my hair.

My scalp is very dry and during the winter season I‘m like a snake shedding skin – after ignoring this fact for years I‘ve actually started investing in products which aim at giving the scalp some love (not only your hair). This conditioner is filled with goodness aiming at the scalp – almond oil, vitamin B and wheat protein. The cilantro and black pepper is is supposed to stimulate blood flow in the scalp. I love the unexpected combination of cilantro and black pepper – the smell is fresh and new to me. The conditioner gives my hair a lot of hydration, helps my split ends – which feel more soft and most importantly has taken great care of my scalp – my skin is less dry and itchy. That my split ends still need some leave-in conditioner and hair oil despite the use of this conditioner.

L:A Bruket Gurkmynta Cucumber Mint Hand Wash Review

81peqlK-YjL._SY450_

Pros:

Feels very luxurious and makes my hands very soft..

Cons:

The smell could have been a bit stronger..

More:

This hand soap was a big treat for me – I don‘t usually give myself soaps as expensive as this one – but then again – I don‘t want to be the richest on the cemetery (and after getting this one and two Diptique candles I certainly won‘t be).

This soap smells deliciously fresh, the bottle lasts for about 2 months (450 ml) and makes my hands very soft after use. I also like that you can buy a re-fill – which is both sustainable and cheaper alternative. What is the minus of the soap? I wish the smell of mint was a bit stronger.

L:A Bruket Broccoli Seed Serum Review

10994_large_c677162c-ab52-40f4-adcb-1293764d69b8

Pros:

Contains broccoli – which is something I never tried on my skin before.

Cons:

Comes in a glass jar.

More:

This serum got an uninvited – but very pleasent extra “dimension” – after accidentally dropping the glass jar on my bathroom floor – I put the remain in my fridge in a plastic container – and voila – applying the ice cold serum now feels beyond refreshing.

I have never used broccoli on my face – but having read its long list of beneficial properties – I was all game. Since broccoli is consider a superfood – being loaded with vitamins and antioxidants, I hoped that my post-winter superdry and very pale skin could get a good boost. Broccoli contains vitamin A (helps stimulate new skin cell production), arachidonic acid (calming effect) plus vitamins C, E and beta-carotene (reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation). So my expectations were hight – the result – the serum is like a light gel, gets absorbed relatively fast – and makes my skin feel very smooth and refreshed (especially since the broken glass jar ended up in my fridge – where it puzzles my boyfriend daily).

A big con is obviously the glass jar – which is very appealing visually but can be very unpractical.

L:A Bruket Sea Salt Scrub Sage / Rosemary / Lavender Review

063_sea_salt_scrub_sage_rosemary_lavender_350ml_1024x1024

Pros:

Contains a lot of oil which makes my skin very soft after use – no need to use a body oil or body lotion.

Cons:

The scrub could be “rougher” on my skin (I like my skin to hurt a bit after a proper scrub).

More:

Those of you whom have followed us for a while know about our L:A Bruket obsession and that we can‘t get enough of these Swedish good ingredients beauty products which make us feel like a zillion (and like queens of all things natural obviously). This time we have gotton our hands on the Lavender/ Sage / Rosemary body scrub and here are our thoughts: the scrub is made of fine salt, it smells delicious mainly of rosemary and leaves our skin very smooth. The salt is drained in oil so our skin feels very hydrated and supersoft after use – which is great since most scrubs leave you itchy and in immediate need of body lotion / body oil. Negatives: the scrub could have contained bigger salt grains in order for one to really feel a more “rough” scrub.
