Stress is part of my life. It is part of all our lives and relieving stress is high up on my list of things to deal with.
Over the past couple of years I have learnt to deal with my stress better. To be simply be more ‘in the moment when it comes to day-to-day life. If I am upset over something I stop and breathe. Simple I know but it has made a huge difference.
When I received news of the Hayo’u range of products I was intrigued. I wanted to know more about a pamper product that seemed to understand where I was in my life.
Rather than a range of products I was introduced to the Hayo’u Method. The system is designed to tackle stress levels and make you feel and look younger so a win in my book.
The package of samples (thank you so much) arrived. Are these going to be any different to other bath and pamper products. I had to wonder. They are so very different that I have to attempt to explain the sensory experience that I have had, and continue to have using this method.
The first of my senses was my sense of smell. I love oils and the combination of lotus flower and frankincense. And combined with the healing properties of Himalayan pink salt it is just heavenly. The first product I used was the shower gel which immediately invigorated me. But, as I was road testing the product I needed to follow instructions. Each product comes with a little insert which introduces you to the one minute breathing exercise. This little ritual is rooted in the wisdom on Chinese medicine and helps you to focus inwards and calm your mind. As you breathe in the gorgeous aromas you are drawing out physical tension and inviting in calm.
I love the instructions – Expel – the stale breath, Descend as you breathe in and then as you exhale – Smile though your whole body. Try it – it feels great and puts me in a happy place.
After trying the shower gel I was ready for a bath, but waited for the following day. I normally shower but I have been treating myself to baths quite a bit especially since I have been in a bit of pain. The reason there are none of my own pics for this blog post is that I have used up all the bath product! A gorgeous oily salty pink pile that I used both as a bath salt and a bit of a scrub.

As if that wasn’t enough there were two more packages in the parcel. The Hayo’u Beauty Restorer De-stress Face Tool a beautiful jade specially shaped stone, and a little bottle of gorgeously aromatic Treat-Rite De-stress Face Oil.
The two are used together to stimulate energy points and release congestion and toxicity. I have included the video link so you can see how it is used, but let us just say I am addicted. The experience is wonderful with the fragrance from the oil and the cool pressure of the jade stone tricking me into believing I am in an expensive spa.
It is easier to watch the video than to try to explain how this all works.
As a blogger I get asked to try products fairly often but I only write honestly and write about products that I really love. This little parcel has already brought me so much joy and relaxation that I have no hesitation in recommending it. These are not budget products, however I really think that they are simply fabulous and worth a treat to yourself.
Thank you so much for reading and promise me that no matter what products you use, please treat yourself to a relaxing bath – it is something I think we all neglect. Lie there and simply breathe.
p.s. I was gifted these items to try, but my review is from the heart.
