Hello, everyone! I’ve just returned from an amazing trip to Iceland and I can’t wait to share with you my experience! While I am going to write a blog post about the whole trip, I decided to share my new skin care findings first!
I knew about Icelandic geothermal waters for a while and Iceland was on my travel destination list for that reason as well as for many others for several years. Blue Lagoon geothermal water has a unique composition, featuring three active ingredients – Silica, Algae and Minerals. Since I have some skin issues, I was very excited about visiting Blue Lagoon and trying their products.
Blue Lagoon entrance ticket is quite expensive, but I strongly recommend you to include Blue Lagoon to your trip itinerary. Although there are many alternatives for much cheaper price (or even free), you will definitely do not experience the same feelings and Wow effect somewhere else.
The closest Blue Lagoon competitor is Myvatn Nature Baths, however their location is not the best, because when it is windy, the water becomes several degrees colder then usual and it means you can’t fully enjoy your visit. Another thing – the difference in water consistency, I found that in Blue Lagoon water is more concentrated meanwhile in Myvatn Nature Baths I can’t really say does it have something really special in it (I am sure it has, it is just about the feeling).
Moreover, Blue Lagoon is definitely more advanced in terms of customers well-being services and it has much more modern system and design. I also liked that you can use shampoo, shower gel and conditioner in the shower. I’ve used Blue Lagoon body cream after the shower, that is also available for every visitor. So, Blue Lagoon is worth the money it costs! In addition the Lagoon is child-friendly and the entrance is absolutely free for children under 14!
During the visit (depending on type of ticket you bought) you could apply Silica Mud and Algae Masks. This is really great because this makes your visit more interesting, almost a special treatment not only for your body, but also for your face. Moreover I was lucky enough to also try Lava Scrub in the Lagoon ;- ).
I do noticed a big difference in my skin condition after visiting Blue Lagoon, it became so soft! I’ve never ever noticed such a huge difference before! Therefore, after floating in the mineral-rich water I was so excited, that I can’t miss shopping in Blue Lagoon shop ;-). They’ll give you 15% discount if you show them email with the entrance ticket purchase confirmation (follow the instructions sent to you by email) and don’t forget to ask for tax refund documents.
I bought the masks and moisturizing body cream that I had tried while being in Lagoon. As a compliment I’ve received a samples of hand cream and lip balm :-).
So, here they are – 3 signature Blue Lagoon products:
Those products work great separately, but you may use them together to achieve the beat results.
- Lava Scrub – is great for exfoliation and preparing the skin for the next skin care step.
- Use Silica Mud mask after exfoliation for a deep skin cleanse.
- And, finally, finish with Algae mask that nourishes the skin, provides immediate lift and gives your skin a youthful glow.
Mineral Moisturizing cream – could be used on your face or/ and body. I use it as a body cream and my skin feels like after the Lagoon visit. It is a rapidly-absorbed moisturizer for dry and sensitive skin. More intensive version exists for very dry sensitive skin.
Hydrating mask (cream) – on the website you’ll find only hydrating cream, however I bought Hydrating mask that I leave for the whole night on my face and in the morning my skin feels moisturized and nourished. I suppose that the cream is also working great on an everyday basis. Both of these products are formulated with unique mineral-rich geothermal seawater, that protects and moisturizes the skin.
Hand cream – has very specific smell, nevertheless this smell disappers very quickly, as well as absorbs really quickly leaving you with a moisturized hands.
Rejuvenating Lip Balm – it was a nice compliment for my purchase, I like how this lip balm nourishes my lips and it has so nice and natural smell!
Important that Blue Lagoon products are paraben, color, fragrance free and dermatologically tested, therefore they are suitable even for sensitive and problematic skin.
I hope I inspired you to try something unusual and great! Blue Lagoon online shop offers world-wide delivery, therefore it is for everyone. If you sign up for their newsletters you’ll get a promotion code for the first purchase ;-). Try it and share with me your experience!
