Dealing with high levels of stress from my full-time job, I love a good pampering/spa session because it is inexpensive, and you can enjoy it from the comfort of your own home. The key to having a relaxing pampering/spa session is to have the right products for it.
Once again, I have partnered up with Blackbox
to bring you this review of the Balimama Exclusive Box
. It contains 3 products for you to complete a perfect home pampering session. Get an additional 10% off

The first product is an anti-bacterial Body Wash
(250ml, S$29) which contains ginger, lemongrass, and rosemary. This body wash aims to gently cleanse, cool and moisturize your skin. First off, the smell is so divine. If you love fresh and tangy scents that will perk up your senses and remind you of the beaches and sea breeze, this is it. I love how the smell fills the entire shower as it felt like a good aromatherapy session as well. The body wash lathers well and it leaves my skin feeling really moisturized and lovely-smelling.
After our skin is clean, it is time give it a good scrub using the Body Polish
(200g, S$27). This body polish incorporates a traditional Balinese herbal recipe for gentle cleansing and anti-aging properties. It contains Lulur herbs which provides gentle yet effective exfoliation to remove any dead skin cells, so any moisturizers you apply next, will get absorbed in much more effectively. It also contains essences of Frangipani, Rice, Sandalwood powders and Seaweed to help polish your skin, leaving it as smooth as an egg. Lastly, it also contains cocoa butter and olive oil to help replenish any lost moisture. Once again, this smells heavenly! I love how smooth the polish is as some body scrubs tend to be really rough which will cause my body to have red patches after using. This polish however, feels really rich and creamy. After rinsing, I was left with smooth and soft skin.
Onto our last step, we gotta apply a moisturizer to "feed" our skin with its much needed nutrients. The Shea Butter
(100ml, S$32) included in this box is rich in vitamin E and... help nourish the skin. Apart from simply providing hydration to your skin, this shea butter is able to treat and prevent stretch marks and eczema, prolonging the youthfulness of your skin. Sitting in the office chair all day long really made my back and shoulders ache, so I love getting my boyfriend to massage my back with this moisturizer and occasionally, I love to pamper him with the same treatment as well.
Overall, I highly recommend this box. Taking care of my body has always been a hassle for me, and I'm pretty sure most of us are not well-disciplined enough to apply lotions on our body every single day. Having this relaxing pamper-myself session helps me to distress and care for my neglected body. The products are beautifully scented which makes me feel like I'm actually in Bali for a spa!
