Did you notice the falling snowflakes on my website? It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I really like Christmas: putting up the Christmas tree, singing along to Christmas carols… I will never get sick of it! And Christmas means… gifts! Last week I received a Christmas gift from Belgian brand Pascaud. In this post I’ll tell you all about it!
I’m really busy: writing articles for Talkies, managing social media of different clients and writing blogposts for all kinds of companies: it’s hectic but I love it. And I do believe that everyone needs a little me-time once in a while so that’s exactly what I’m doing this evening… I opened my Pascaud Christmas gift and discovered 3 amazing products: a selfie light, 24 hour cream and body polish.
If you’re looking for an early Christmas present, I don’t have one for you… But maybe I can cheer you up with the news that Pascaud has recently released a new recipe for one of their Body Polish products.
What’s so special you might wonder? Well they’ve decided to add bamboo stem extract (that’s Bambus Arundinacea for all you Latin lovers). This body polish is best described as a mild, but intensive body scrub that could even be used as a shower gel.
Bamboo extract is incredibly rich in minerals and proteins, and you guessed it, it has some great benefits for your skin! It stimulates healing of the skin, restores suppleness and works miracles on dry spots or skin eruptions. Besides that it also works great with other products, as it ensures a better uptake of other body oils.
Feel free to use multiple times a week, but as the name suggests, it’s only to be used for your body and not suitable for facial care. But whatever you do, don’t be seduced by its lovely smell and try to eat it (I must admit I was tempted at first..).
Rub intensively onto a dry skin and wash it off or simply use it while showering to massage your body. Don’t forget to give it a shake before using it!

24 hour cream
Our second product is a day & night-cream (hence the name 24 Hour cream, duh). It contains mulberry extract which, as all Pascaud products, has some great skin benefits as well. Among others it’s an effective anti-aging agent, does wonders for dark spots around your eyes, it treats dry skin and makes you feel silky soft and radiant!
The first step is to rub it gently onto your skin in the mornings and evenings and the second step is to let it settle and enjoy. What could be easier!
