Alqvimia

 

This Spanish brand has apparently been around for quite sometime (started in 1984). I first came to know about them when I stumbled onto their counter in the exhibition. There was a very sweet Spanish lady at the counter who quickly started to explain me the benefits of their body sculpting oil (lol for obvious reasons) saying how I could loose 3-4 inches off my tummy šŸ™‚ I think I need to drown myself in a vat of their oil to reach anywhere close to where I need to be šŸ˜€ (swimming in the oil, Im swimming in the oil la la la)…

Ok enough with the jokes. Its getting serious in here. They claim to have all natural products which treats you body, mind and soul. Some of their cosmetics follow alchemic rules ie are made along those principals.  An interesting concept if you know anything about alchemy. They have a wide range of products available and can best be described as a premium brand. Their products are said to be petroleum, artificial perfume, synthetic coloring and mineral oil free. Let’s hear about them in their own words:

According to their brochure they have 10 main product lines – Eternal youth, Absolute Beauty, Sensuality & Femininity, Queen of Egypt, Silhouette, Relaxation, Vitality, Spagyric Products, Essential Oils/Vegetable Oils and Children & Babies. I read a few reviews for some of their products and what little I read everyone had positive things to say about their stuff. They all claimed that these products worked for them. And for some this is their go to line.

     They have kits available for some of the lines as well. If you purchase the entire Eternal Youth kit you will get a special book free with it explaining out alchemic beauty process and how it would help you stay young. Sounds interesting doesn’t it?!? But like I said they a premium brand with products upwards of 20 euros. Their Bust Firming Oil costs like 76 euros which is almost 6k!! It works though but dang that steep. But apparently the bottle is supposed to last you for 6 months and a woman stretched it to a year and got good results for it so I guess that evens that out.

     The lady gave me a bottle for the body shaping oil as a sample but I politely turned that down as I was sure one little sample bottle was not gonna make a scratch on me and thus unfair to review. She gave me a face cream from the Eternal Youth line to try out which I was happy with.

It is strange that there has not been many people talking about this line. I guess the price tag could be a deterrent for that. Another thing that was strange to me that even though they have an Indian distributor there products are not seen anywhere in our markets online or offline. I didn’t buy any stuff from them at the time thinking I could always go directly to the distributor but their site does not work. I will give their phone numbers a shot to see if that works out.

     So that was another short write up on a new brand that I found. I’m testing out their face cream presently and will do a first impressions kinda review for that once I finish the tube. I’m eagerly waiting to see when these are actually available in our markets and at what price point. I will be seeing you around….Bye!
