As a beauty lover, I am really intrigued by their skincare/bodycare range Micosalud Dermocosmetics which is free from parabens, artificiel fragrances, phtalates, DEA or sulphates. I have never ever tried any creams/beauty related products using mushrooms extracts (and I have tested many things so far) and I am about to test some of their products, which will feature on my blog soon.
I will start using the Mico-serum, a unique face serum designed to calm and heals skin thanks to a intelligent mix of mushrooms extracts, argan oil and amino acids. I am also very curious to try the limited edition of the 100% biodegradable Sponge edition, a body exfoliating handmade Mico-Soap sponge made of natural whool and silk which contains Reishi soap and is aromatised with calendula and lemon. As a perfect partner to the sponge, I also received a body soap Mico-soap enriched in Reishi, argan oil and red clay. Everything sounds really lovely, fresh and purifying at the same time.
The lovely package also features a 100% certified organic Cordiceps-flavored chocolate and honey. Original and suprising, I aim to appreciate those little goodies during a special occasion.
