I’ve been feeling under the weather and very sorry for myself so I dipped into my stack of goodies from new Irish online store, Opoko. The White Witch products particularly appealed: 100% Irish, 100% natural, 100% organic and 100% biodegradable; there’s a lot to like. But how do the products work, and did I fall under their spell?
I left the mug cooling beside the bath while I wallowed in my Chocolate Milk. Like the eye bags, you get two tea-bag like sachets, individually wrapped up in paper, and filled with pure milk powder, fair trade dark cocoa powder, fine organic oatmeal and bicarbonate of soda. The sachet had a Coco-Pops effect on the bathwater, and scented the room with the mouthwatering scent of real chocolate. No synthetic nasties here! It felt absurdly indulgent; even more so when I covered my eyes with the cooled down eye sachets. I emerged feeling relaxed, refreshed and thoroughly pampered.
Opoko stock a wide range of White Witch products, from bath products to body lotions and balms, hair tonics and cleansers. I also spotted these steamers on the brand’s own website, which have piqued my interest – they remind me of the LUSH Steamer tabs that I’ve recently fallen for.
