Holistic skincare discovery – Alba1913 review

Author: Jenny Wu
Hi there!

  • Shireen

    First of all, how did I not know you have your own beauty store? What a lovely brand overview, Jenny and Alba1913 sounds like a brilliant brand. I am currently on a facial mist kick so I am most interested in trying out the mist. Will research about the brand further.

    This brand is new to me, but I do love the sound of their holistic approach to beauty. I am interested on a few of these products you’re mentioning and I’ve added them to my list. Thank you for such a detailed brand introduction and extensive review!

    Oh I didn’t know you had a beauty shop…..must check it out. The hand cream certainly sounds very interesting and unique. I love the sound of the scent too x


  • Alyssa

    I haven’t heard of this brand before but it sounds really interesting. I think I may like the leave-on mask and the skin guard concentrate :)

    They sound like nice products, but it’s the hand cream I’m most interested in! I usually have dry skin on my hands over winter, that’s normal for me, but it’s continued over summer which is definitely not normal – something that continues to moisturise my hands even after washing sounds like a great idea! :)

    Hope you are having a good week so far :) I’ve lost my voice so not the best week for me, haha! I’m trying to rest up.

    Don´t you wear gloves when doing the dishes? Random question, I know.

    Sounds good but i think they are a bit on the pricey high end side. I guess good things don’t come cheap. XO


  • The whole holistic approach sounds wonderful and even though I usually prefer unscented products, the fact that they intentionally scent their products to invoke the desired emotions actually makes sense and is quite appealing. That hand cream especially sounds really unique and lovely to use. I think I need to check it out :)

    I have been trying to explore more green beauty for the environment and to be more aware of what I am putting on my body, and this sounds like a wonderful brand! I have got to explore this more.

    Wow Jen what a thorough review, I have never used this brand but it seems to be a great one especially that mask as you recommend.

  • So many skincare gems in one post, so well written Jenny! I have yet to try this brand, but their products sound incredible. Will definitely have a look! xx

    I never thought there’d be a day where I’m reading a wonderful skincare post, and I’m like THE HAND CREAM. I use a Crabtree & Evelyn one right now that my mom gave me, and while it’s not bad at all, I find myself wanting more hydration from it (particularly when I was in Iceland, with the oh-so-lovely winds) so I’m seriously considering finding and actually buying my own expensive-ish hand cream!

    I’d not heard of this skincare brand before, thanks so much for the introduction! The leave-on mask sounds amazing thanks to the cooling cucumber effect, and YES to the sound of that hand cream!

    I’ve never heard of this brand before but honestly I’m sold. These products definitely seem like the sort that I would really be into, and they look like they’d be perfect for my sort of skincare regime. I’d definitely give these a go.

  • Wow, I wouldn’t expect to see Polish brand on your blog :D I’ve heard about this brand before but I’ve never tried it, but the mist seems to be a product that I should try first – I keep searching for a new face mist and I need to get one. The ingredients they use seems to be interesting too :)

    Hey Jenny! I just recently heard of Decovo. So glad you’re collaborating with them and exploring holistic brands. Alba1913 sounds terrific. I have the same philosophy! You really want an EXPERIENCE with skincare. Everything from packaging, to scent, to how it works is so important. It can be a turn on or a turn off. Thanks for reviewing these.

  • Emily

    What a cool idea to have your own little shop! I’ve never heard of Decovo but they sound interesting. I love that this is a brand from Poland! I was just there a few years ago and my family is from there. I really wish before I visited I would have done a little research on great Polish brands. I definitely missed out on some good skincare I think!

    I am sure I would not like a filmy texture for hand cream either. This was interesting to read, I’ve not tried any of these. I think I’ve only used a green tea serum by a Polish brand some years ago, so this was lovely to read. Have a great weekend. /Madison

  • Sam Hodgett

    Agreed, skincare should be a holistic experience and happy to see that you’ve provided a shop so it’s a one-stop shopping place, will have a look at it! I haven’t heard of this brand, but am very intrigued with their mist

    I recently have dived into skincare game and even from my little experience I am nodding to everything you said, skincare indeed is a holistic experience! Alba1913 sounds like an amazing brand, I will look out for their products! The hand cream though sounds so delicious, I mean orange chocolate?…how to say no to that??
    I hope you’re having a smooth sailing week! :)
