I actually got this product in a recent Subscription box and because I find it absolutely amazing I thought I would dedicate an entire post to it. I follow A Model Recommends and Ruth always raves about French pharmacy products, I now know why. The Mixa was created by Dr Roger a French Apothecary. Dr Roger wanted to create a range of Dermo-cosmetic products for sensitive skin and in my house, we have this in abundance.
I always think that a brand that has been around for many years has got it nailed. Mixa was created in 1920 when Dr Roger opened his own Pharmacy on the outskirts of Paris. Loving to mix and create his own products, he set himself the task of creating a blend suitable for the ladies who worked in the Laundrettes on the outskirts of Paris. These ladies washed the garments of Local rich Parisians. But using such harsh chemicals played havoc with their hands. Stripping them of all natural moisture. So Dr Roger came up with a solution and his very own lotion and the brand Mixa was born. Very soon it was sought after and production went to a larger scale. From this date, the brand has expanded massively and so has their range. Winning the Number 1 body lotion for 10 years in a row, this just shows how fabulous it is.
Mixa Restoring Body lotion
The lotion is a lovely thick consistency and applies very easily. One thing that I adore about this product is the fact that it absorbs so quickly meaning you can get dressed pretty much after application. There is no greasy residue left either which I always find an added bonus plus its Paraben free.
The lotion is great for areas that are very dry for me these would be my feet, knees and elbows. As its coming into tanning season as well, I’m going to trial using this for a skin hydrate for a few days before I apply my tan. With the hope that it will combat any tan issues in dry areas. I must say it is a super affordable product that works extremely well in comparison to some high-end creams. At the minute it’s on offer in Superdrug for £4.25 instead of £6.49 to check it out click here.
Have you ever tried any French Pharmacy products or Mixa?
