I love testimonials… a customer from France just wrote about us on her blog. Since I don’t read French, I had to turn on the Babel Fish from Yahoo. It helps but wasn’t perfectly translated. So I ask Ludyvine(the customer) and she was so sweet to send me the English version of her post…
“What’s better than being pampered at the end of pregnancy???
I am crazy about natural cosmetics, unfortunately in France I haven’t find something that smells real good.
When I say « smell good », it is to find something else than the basics smells we have here, mostly olive scents or Alep’s bread…which I’m a not a real fan…
I love Lush’s products, I enjoy the originality and the colors, besides the scents are absolutely great! Even if these products are fresh handmade cosmetics, they are made with loads of chemical products such as Paraben…So that is why I was looking for something more natural.
While I was surfing on the web, I have found a link to this shop :
« mi SPA » , it is all natural product, guaranteed « Paraben Free » and all the ingredients are listed on the website…no surprises if you want to order.Mimie Wong is the creator of these cosmetics and I really felt in love with the design of her website, the pictures of the products…I just wanted to try them…
All the scents are quite unused here in France, and reminds me of flowers and Japanese’s touch. On its site you can find all the products and especially the origin of plants that Mimie Wong uses to manufacture her cosmetics.
I would add that the design of its products is very pleasant.The price is more than affordable a 4oz soap costs around 4 € which is less expensive than our “awful scented soaps”. The shipping cost is a little high, but there’s insurance included and the package was sent on the 18th of July and arrived home on the 23rd (19-20 was weekend) so very fast delivery from California. I’ve also had a sample with my package, a nice pen plus a list of coupons from www.totallyindiecoupons.comIn this post I’m talking about natural products and in the French version about ecology, of course if you have a deep thought what would you say? Okay she buys natural soaps & products, but they they come from USA…all this pollution (transport by airplane etc…)
I agree it might not be the best thing…but have you ever questioned yourself about the origins of the plastic bottle you are using with your everyday shampoo???
That is why this year I have decided to make a donation to http://www.actioncarbone.org/ which will compensate all the pollution I have consumed this year, because yes, I consume, you consume, they consume…but what do we do????”
Here’s another sweet note from her email…
“Last night I couldn’t sleep, so I took a hot shower used one of your soap bars, which relaxed me a lot and then I used the sake lotion sample, the smell was so good…I felt great and went back to bed and finally slept.
Have a wonderful day,
And ”NEAR” - back home in the states, I recently received this message from Holly (decor8) …
“I am so happy to hear from you. Your package arrived recently and I LOVE EVERYTHING. Thank you. My husband took the lip balm and soy candle right away, and the bar of soap, and ran off with it. He loves your products and will not give them back to me. Oh well.
