Mecca Beauty Loop Birthday Gift

Mecca Beauty Loop Birthday Gift

I never thought the day would come when I write about how awesome a particular hand wash is, today is that day! Also, for those that are wondering about the benefits of the Mecca Beauty Loop program, this is the birthday gift that I have received for the last two years.

For those that don't know me, I have been obsessed with Mecca for years and years –I say Mecca because my local store changed from a Mecca Cosmetica to a Mecca Maxima, and I also shop online (a lot) to still have access to all the brands combined :). Joining the loyalty program was a no-brainer for me as I get all my beauty goodies from there. My mum says when they know your name in a store, then you shop there too much lol; and Matt says that being on the highest level shows I spend too much…. What can I say, I am a #MeccaBeautyJunkie :P -the lines between NEED and WANT are very grey and very blurry.

Anyway, one of the many benefits of Beauty Loop (Level 2 and 3) is getting a Birthday gift every year -Free stuff yes please!! The gift I have received was their own brand Mecca Cosmetica, 365 Hand Wash in ‘Bergamot Orange & Gardenia’. Before you say ahh cheap skates! Hand wash…seriously?! This to me is the el primo of all hand washes!! It comes in 400ml and retails at $42AU. I would love this permanently at my sink but until my budget can fit in $42 hand wash, I shall be looking forward to and being grateful for receiving this as a birthday gift :). 

WHY??

Some may say its OCD, but I say its being CLEAN (my nursing friend would back that up with germ facts too). I tend to wash my hands a lot… I also have super sensitive skin in general. Most hand washes irritate and dry out my skin, so this is like heaven when it leaves them super soft and has an amazing scent that’s not over powering, regardless of how much it’s used. Plus, one must look after their skin so they don’t have dry wrinkled old hands before their time too! The range of Mecca Cosmetica products may not have been around for that long, but I have tried out quite a few already and definitely think it’s on par with the well-established top brands. #notasponsoredpost

Noskam rating: So if your looking at joining the Beauty Loop loyalty program then this is some more insight into it, and if your looking for a new hand wash, then my Noskam recommendation is to definitely give this one a go - you can purchase here
