I live in a small town in Cornwall, and recently I discovered a small shop that sells natural and organic skin care whose products are made by hand. Always interested to find any new skincare ranges, I ventured in.
This is a delightful little shop in one of the town’s prettiest lanes. I was greeted by a very friendly lady who explained how the company was founded and what products I might like to try.
Aromatika was originally founded in 2006 by owner Lisa Hosking, a qualified aromatherapist. All of their products are suitable for Vegetarians and most being Vegan as well.
All of the products are handmade in small batches in Devon, where Aromatika started and has shops in Exeter and Totnes, with shops in Glastonbury and Frome and of course, Truro.
All of their products are free of parabens and sodium laurel sulphate and not tested on animals.
Having been given all the information about the company, I decided that I needed to try some of the goods.
I love to use a facial oil and so the Rose Facial Oil was recommended as it is great for mature skin and helps with redness, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and broken capillaries – all of which I have. This smells divine and contains organic rosehip seed oil, macadamia oil which are both full of anti oxidants. So full of all kinds of goodness.
I thought I would also buy the Rose Facial Moisturiser to compliment the facial oil. This is also full of Vitamin E and great for mature, dehydrated, normal or slightly sensitive skin.
I normally use a facial oil in the evening after cleansing as I find that most are too oily under foundation, but the amazing thing with these products is that you can use the oil in the morning as well as the evening, because when you apply the moisturiser over the oil, it stops being oily and just sinks into the skin. Brilliant!
So far I am very pleased with these products and will definitely be trying out some more from their face range, and also their body care range. They also have a whole range of bath, hair, hand and feet products.
I hope everyone has had a great November and is looking forward to the festive season that is coming up.
