Mastic Spa is a company many probably has not heard of yet, but I do strongly believe that it will be on loads and loads of blogs very soon. The packaging is eye catching, the ingredients are natural, it contains mastic – a ‘wow ingredient’ and it seems to have immediate multiple effects on skin. Can’t really go wrong with a product like this, can you?!
Now, apart from being all natural (as quite a few brands are nowadays – or at least claim to be), Mastic Spa products contain mastic – an ingredient you can only and exclusively find in this brand. So what is mastic? It’s basically a plant resin from a mastic tree which grows on only one island in the world – Chios. Hence mastic is sometimes called the ‘tears of Chios’ as it comes out as a liquid leaking from the bark but then dries into golden-toned drops. It’s a very rare ingredient containing mastic oil and it has been used in pharmacy and cosmetology for absolute ages – it has got antibacterial properties, it whitens teeth and heals burns.
And when it can preserve thousands and thousands year old mummies then I bet it can do something for my skin too, aha! Mastic basically creates a thin protective film on your skin and under this film it releases all the goodness into the depth of your skin – it even contains traces of zinc which protect you from UV-radiation!
Mastic Spa specializes in production of skin & hair care products made with the mastic ingredient, usually adding a few extras – from hemp to diamond powder, depending on what skin/hair issues you need to tackle. I’ve been sent quite a few samples to try out & for the first impressions I have to say I’m blown away. I really like the scents (very Greek-holiday-like to me) and the moisturizers work a treat. Let’s see how I get on with them in a long-term run. Also, there will be a little giveaway of some Mastic Spa products soon – so keep your eyes peeled, hey!
