TheraNaka African Revival Gel Review

A synergistic blend of Jasmine and Geranium with hints Cape Camomile captured in a luxurious collection of at-home spa products. Whether it’s drenching your body in a luxurious oil, or massaging in an invigorating cool gel, every Theranaka product is carefully selected to achieve optimum relaxation – they key to a peaceful mind, body and soul.

How dreamy does that sound? Hence why I got my hands on 2 of their products and used them so that I could tell you how dreamy they are. Here’s what I thought…

Let’s talk packaging.

I bought products from two different ranges – The Revival Gel from the African Fusion Invigorating range and and Peace Body Oil from the African Fusion Relaxing range. 

The Revival Gel comes in a brown 50ml tube with a gold twist on lid. When you first open it, the cap is sealed with a foil to prevent leaking.

The Peace Body Oil comes in a 100ml brown glass bottle with interchangeable lids – a black twist cap for transporting and a pump action lid when the product is in use.

 

Let’s talk ingredients and marketing.

The Revival Gel is a multi-functional cooling gel containing extracts of Bladderwrack, Chamomile, Sea Minerals, Rooibos, Camphor, and Menthol that brings immediate relief to tired and heavy legs, poor circulation, and muscle tension. 

Directions for use: Apply to areas in need, such as sore muscle areas, temples, legs and feet.

The Peach Body Oil is a “silky textured soothing botanical synergy body oil” containing Marula Oil, Jasmine, and Geranium that helps relax the senses and create a sense of harmony of the body and mind while providing a gentle sedative effect. 

Directions for use: Massage body when needed using upward circular massage movements.

So did it deliver?

The Revival Gel

If you’re like me and get headaches a lot and don’t like taking painkillers then you’re going to love the TheraNaka African Revival Gel.

Screens and stress run our lives. We check our phones first thing in the morning and pretty much every 30 minutes or so during the day, spend 8 hours or more in front of a computer screen and stress about the work that we need to get done. We end up skipping meals and forgetting to drink our daily recommended water. We drive home and watch series on the telly in the evenings before checking our phones once again as we climb into bed.

Constantly staring at a screen gives me a headache like no other, not to mention all the other possible triggers that one encounters daily, and I recently had the TheraNaka African Revival Gel recommended to me to ease tension headaches. I was skeptical at first but decided that I had nothing to loose. It worked wonders! I apply a pea-size amount of product to my fingers and massage the gel into my temples to help relieve the symptoms of a tension headache and it’s so much better than taking a headache tablet. 

Tension Headaches

Some people develop tension headaches after staring at a computer screen for a long time or after driving for long periods. Cold temperatures may also trigger a tension headache. Other common causes of tension headaches:

  • alcohol
  • eye strain
  • dry eyes
  • fatigue
  • smoking
  • a cold or flu
  • a sinus infection
  • caffeine
  • poor posture
  • emotional stress
  • decreased water intake
  • lack of sleep
  • skipping meals

The Peace Body Oil

With the Peach Body Oil, lizard legs are a thing of the past. Winter is not kind to our skin and I will be honest, it takes my skin a long time to adjust to how dry the winter is but the Peace Body Oil is that perfect winter oil. Not only does it hydrate my skin, the array of invigorating and muscle warming essential oils help to effectively remove toxin build-up and aid in circulation. 

I love using it after an intense workout to massage into and sooth my muscles, and also after a long and luxurious bubble bath in the heart of winter. There is no better way to add a little more relaxation to a pamper evening than with the Peace Body Oil.

P.S. I would highly recommend convincing hubby to massage your shoulders with the Peace Body Oil. It’s devine!
