More you those hero products
As one of Thalgos hero products, it must be amazing. Confirmed by the Bath & Unwind team.
This powders ultimate aim is to revitalise the skin and help boost the immune system. Now, anything that is going to boost the immune system which in other words means, to help with weight loss …there is a price to pay.
Thalgo strongly believe is their philosophy that adding colouring and artificial scents ruin the product and doesn’t give clients the full spa experience using marine life. Therefore, if you haven’t had a summer holiday this year. This is sure to bring the seaside aromas to your bathroom. It is a strong scent so is not for the sensitive nosed types, but if it works, who are we to complain!
Top Tip- use a small amount of the powder and mix with water to create a thick paste and use as a revitalising face mask. Genius!
Like ying and yang, Plasmalg gel and micronized marine algae work in total harmony. Plasmalg gel is a pre treatment to activate the skin and open the pores.
Do not fear, this does not smell of the ocean, salty yes, but it is refreshing and cooling. By applying this all over the body this is if nothing else a fab way to cool down after a hot day.
