I love discovering new skincare brands and I’m always drawn to brands that take a holistic approach to wellness. As soon as I saw this brand on LoveLula, I knew I had to try the products out.

Inspired by the places she calls home, Kanchalika Stephenson explored the benefits of Western and Thai therapeutic plants, and was captivated by their amazing diversity and healing properties.

Inspired by Ancient Wisdom…
Out of our strong connection with nature and passion for Thai Holistic Medicine, MALĀKO was born. The connection of the mind, body and soul is more powerful than most realise, as the wellbeing of each of these is dependent on the other. But the concept of balancing them is not a new one. For centuries, Thai generations have been taught the importance of living mindfully and positively, and utilizing medicinal plants for the treatment of skin and body related issues.

This creme body scrub is absolutely gorgeous….

The scent is oh so amazing. Lemongrass, May Chang & Frankincense essential oils blend together beautifully.

I love the fresh and zesty aroma of lemongrass oil. May Chang is one of my top 3 favourite essential oils, it has a lovely refreshing citrus aroma with fruity and spicy undertones. It is perfect for relieving stress, I add a few drops to my diffuser for a quick pick-me-up. Frankincense is sweet and woody and has a deeply relaxing aroma.

The consistency is beautiful, creamy with finely crushed Peach and Olive seeds which gently exfoliate. I massage the scrub on damp skin, mainly focusing on dry, dull areas of my body. It does a great job at exfoliating dull, dead skin without feeling overly abrasive. After rinsing my skin feels clean, smooth and silky soft. I feel totally pampered and refreshed.
