Special thanks to Brill Communications for sending out such an adorable little package. The package consists of 2 Me Bath bath bombs, a cute blue IKEA towel and a mermaid mask. I know how stressful it can be living life in quarantine but hang in there, friends. Remember to wear a mask, social distance and be kind. 🙂
Work has been hectic as per usual so I like to indulge and treat myself to a nice warm bath from time to time. I can never have too many bath bombs because I go through them quite frequently during the colder seasons. These bath bombs from Me Bath come in a nice range of colours and scents to choose from. They are relatively a new brand so expect to see more variety added in the future. These retail for $4.99 each and are available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
The two bath bombs I received were:
Mystic Mermaid – which has a fantastic aquatic scent and adds a gorgeous aqua-blue hue to your bath water. It’s very fitting to the theme and makes the whole bath experience more fun and exciting.
Unicorn Magic has a delicious sweet, fruity scent and it gives out a nice, bright neon pink hue to your bath water.
Bath time paired with a nice beverage of your choice, a book or even streaming your favourite shows always helps you unwind and puts everything else on pause. It’s a nice little treat you can give yourself. Bath bombs can be pretty expensive and range between 6 to 10 dollars so it’s nice to see Me Bath make the effort to create an affordable option.
With bath time, you can customize and amp up the experience by adding a bubbles or even some bath salts, the options are quite endless! Be sure to not have your bath water scorching hot because you’re going to irritate and dry out your skin. And try not to stay in for too long because your fingers and toes may prune up. I think disclaimers like these can be helpful since I almost never hear anyone mention these sorts of things. It’s good to take precautions and remember to enjoy your self care time!
Earlier of this year, I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to become one of Luseta’s brand ambassadors and I was thrilled! I kept seeing their products all over my feed and explore page so it was very exciting to work with a popular and well known hair brand.
All Luseta products are sulfate, phosphate and carbon-free. ♡
Growing up, my hair was very thick and strong but as I aged, I noticed my hair has become a lot more weak, thinner even. It’s likely because of aging and diet. My diet isn’t the best so I need to work on that. You’d be surprised how much diet plays a role in your everyday life and overall appearance aside from just your overall physique. Skin and hair are affected by poor eating habits.
The first set of products I tried from Luseta was their Hemp Oil complex line. I no longer have the shampoo and conditioner because I used them but I highly reccomend this line to those who have thin hair and split ends. This line did a superb job making my hair less tangled and also made it feel a lot stronger. My boyfriend suffers from alopecia in the front of his head and he even found this line really gentle on scalp while leaving it refreshed and soft. He’s very picky with hair care so that compliment says a lot.
The Hemp Oil complex line is formulated with 3 beautiful key ingredients that helps stimulate, soothe and moisturize your scalp.
• HEMP OIL is excellent for most skin types as it is non-comdegenic (won’t clog your pores) and it helps balance out oily skin/scalps by hydrating and maintaining skin’s oil production.
• PEPPERMINT is commonly used in a lot of hair products that claims to stimulate hair growth/scalp care and etc. It also known to have fantastic antiseptic and antibacterial qualities. Please be aware that you will feel a slight tingling, cooling sensation when using products with this ingredient.
• GREEN TEA is an overall fantastic ingredient used for many purposes – anti aging and weightloss. For hair care in particular, this is great for combating against dry scalp and dandruff.
Alright onto the products that I do still have and have also been enjoying. They recently replenished my Luseta supply with their Collagen and Biotin line. This line is just so luxurious because they choose to use two of the most popular ingredients you see in supplements in our hair care.

Their biotin and collagen line consists of a wonderful blend of powerful ingredients from Vitamin b7 biotin, hydrolyzed collagen and argan oil; All these ingredients are perfect for restoring necessary nutrients into every strand while plumping collagen adds dimension and volume into the hair for a thicker, fuller and healthier appearance.
BIOTIN is commonly found in supplements to help with hair growth and fight against hair thinning.
Collagen has amazing benefits for the skin, hair and body. For hair, it helps build and strengthen hair proteins. It also may prevent against follicle damage and greys.
* in my opinion, greys can be caused by multiple factors such as stress, hereditary so it’s almost difficult for me to believe that entirely but I wanted to add my thoughts on this.
I found this specific set did an incredibly job moisturizing my scalp and hair. Often times a lot of shampoo products do dry out my hair and causing a lot of flyaways and I found this shampoo really great for moisturizing, softening and leaving my hair feeling so clean. Their conditioner pairs well with this shampoo as it leaves my hair feeling silky soft and lightweight while being nourishing.

Overall, I’m impressed with Luseta hair care products, they honestly are salon grade quality and top of the line products. I don’t think I’ll purchase any of hair care product because these work for me. I actually went ahead and purchased their apple cider clarifying conditioner to try out and I’m excited to see how that goes. 🙂 I highly recommend you guys to try out their products, you will not disappointed!
Japan in the box is a carefully curated Japanese themed subscription box that consists of a wide variety of self-care items from skincare, bath, and even Japanese treats. You’re likely to find some popular, familiar products and some new ones. I personally only have seen two things before in this box and it was their kit kat and also the lululun mask set. This box did take a while to get to me however I eventually got it because if you’re not familiar with Canadian customs, they often take a while to clear packages because they want to ensure they check package contents prior to releasing them.
They offer free shipping worldwide, which is amazing because most subscription boxes do charge for shipping so it’s nice to know you’re paying a fixed price without worrying paying additional fees. I personally did not have any issues with custom and duties fees with this package and it got to me in tip-top shape, everything was also beautifully wrapped securely.
Kit Kats are classic and popular snacks in Japan and they often come in a large range of flavors and when I mean large range, I mean all sorts of flavors from citrus, milky, fruity even. There are all sorts of flavors so this is always exciting to see and you can even write the recipient’s name at the back if it’s a gift.
Lululun masks are very well-known universally and it’s likely because of how affordable they are and they’re marketed towards sensitive folks. If sensitive skin people can use them, so can everyone else. I like the concept of having 1 package and multiple masks inside because it limits out producing so much waste and because I sheet mask every single day, these kinds of masks will come in handy for sure.
Bath salts, anything bath care is very popular in Japan because you’ll often get these with as a gift with purchase from a beauty shop online or instore. They’re a great way to detox and unwind for the day. Some have heating/warming features to them making your bath experience more luxurious and relaxing.
If there any specific products you’re curious to know more about, Japan in the box created a unique QR code where you can scan with your phone and find further information about the box. How innovative and exciting is that? Ditching long, lengthy info cards and using your phone to read on more information about the products. I’ve been using Japanese skincare for as long as I remember and they always have one of the best quality products.
Lastly, can we just appreciate the detail of the box? it’s absolutely beautiful and I love the art and design for this. For a new subscription box company, I am very impressed with what I see and look forward to seeing what else they have to offer in the near future.
