Evaluating the best and worst finds + the Quest’s twists and turns in January: health, happiness, ethical excellence.
But before we start, just look at that: it snows again over here. So beautiful. Now this is winter!My best find in January was ILA SPA; both the range and the salon treatments. Having tested a body skincare set that I’ve purchased online, and booked a fantastic treatment in a spa in Berlin, I am seriously in love.
Right now I’m hearting their Face Mask for Revitalising Skin – green clay and a blend of essential oil to make your head spin. Well, in a good sense. I will report back after my second treatment in February.
The worst product (and remember, we don’t review products we don’t like here) was a certain novelty on the nail polish market. It takes forever to dry; chips on the first day; and takes another eternity to scratch it of. Here you see it fail epically on Day Two.I’ve also quite loved one of Pai Skincare new serums (review to follow); am almost through my Benifu(u)ku metabolic cure – with major success; and have discovered a new brand from Germany that I’m evaluating right now.I also went to the Greenshowroom, THE trade fair for eco-ethical fashion in their new venue (Postbahnhof Berlin); so a lot of fashion (and accessories, and jewellery) stuff is coming next.On a very personal note: January has been about friends old and new; about learning; about finding family harmony where a lot of history was continuuously creating some toxic vapours. So yes, January has been great.To wrap it up, let me highlight an exceptional foodie event for all Berliners out there: check out the 2015 CACAO ACADEMY hosted at the Contemporary Food Lab.
