Eness Cosmetics - Exotic Africa Argan Oil Range
ethical cruelty-free beauty brand in Birmingham
Back in September, I introduced Eness Cosmetics a new ethical beauty brand that had just opened their doors in Birmingham. They had let me choose a couple of bodycare products, complimentary for a review, which you can read here. The bodycare products were lovely, smelt great and made my skin feel silky soft. So when they asked if I would like to try out their new Exotic Africa Argan Oil range, I was looking forward to trying it out. I love that Eness are an ethical beauty brand, and the fact that they have chosen my great city of Birmingham to open their first store, then I'm more than happy to share the love and support a great small independent business!
The guys at Eness are lovely people and are so passionate about the products, the ingredients and how their sourced and made which is wonderful to see. Eness were very generous and gave me so many products to keep, which was a fab early Christmas present.
First off, I received a beautifully presented red gift box containing a rose gold candle, Gentle Bath Milk and Nourishing Hand Cream from their Exotic Africa Argan Oil range. The range is enriched with natural argan oil, Abyssinian oil and ylang-ylang oil. Taking baths are one of my favourite things to do this time of year, so turning the bathroom lights out, lighting a candle and pouring a beautifully scented bath milk into the tub is bliss for me. I found the scent to be really relaxing and calming.
Hand cream is essential in the winter, especially how I'm very unpractical and always forget to take gloves out with me, so the argan oil hand cream has helped my hands to stay soft and has prevented them getting sore.
Argan oil has many beauty benefits, it's high in vitamin E, so is perfect to help hydrate and soften the skin. The popular oil also has plenty of hair benefits too, from making the hair silkier, shinier, softer and helping to treat split ends and tame freezy hair.
The shampoo and conditioner has made my hair smell gorgeous, at the moment my hair is super long and can usually be an effort to brush after washing but the argan oil has made it much more manageable. The Hair Oil has also made it a lot easier to brush too. The first time I used the oil I applied too much and too close to the roots so it did make my hair greasy. But on the second application I used a small amount and just ran it through the ends which did the job, and it doesn't weigh your hair down either which is a bonus.
And finally the Cocoa Heaven Body Scrub with a warm cocoa fragrance, enriched with vitamin E and coconut oil. This stuff is great, its full of crushed grains of pure salt and sugars and does a great job at removing tough dry skin. As it's enriched with oils it leaves a soft silky layer on the skin. Which can help make shaving your legs easier because it glides, but the layer of product comes off too, so it does make an effort to rinse the razor before the next go. Either way this is definitely one of my favorite scrubs, it's very similar to the Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub, however, Eness sell it for half the price! You can find Eness online or on Cannon Street, Birmingham, a short distance away from New Street.
