Hey Guys, I recently received a sample from a company called AEOS (Active Energised Organic Skincare). I was really intrigued by the nature of this company, So I contacted them, after a small amount of communication, I received the following Kit.
Now first off, I need to mention the condition in which I received this kit, The outer box was stained, marked, drawn on and scuffed. None of the products were damaged in any way but the presentation had a lot to be desired. Secondly, I received absolutely no literature with this kit, Nothing telling me about the kit itself, the products inside, how to use them, no prices nothing! Any information I have provided following this, I have had to source myself from scrolling through pages and pages on their website. I realise that they have sent this to me free of charge as a blogger in return for a honest review, but It didn’t give me a lot of confidence in their customer service. Anyways, Lets begin with what is inside.
Gentle Cleansing Lotion – £49.99 – 75ml
“A gentle cleanser containing a blend of organic and biodynamic essential oils, plant extracts and the energies of gems and crystals to assist in the removal of makeup and impurities whilst helping to maintain the delicate moisture balance of the skin. Application with water stimulates the active ingredients from plant extracts and fruit oils”
From my experience, cleansing lotions do a great job of providing a very gentle clean. They borderline are meant to give skin a hydrating boost, versus cleaning skin thoroughly.
That said, this cleansing lotion is great when my skin is just mildly dirty and needs a brief wash, maybe when I don’t have post-workout sweat all over my facial skin.
Gentle Exfoliant – £35.98 – 30ml (10ml received)
“A gentle face exfoliant rich in seed oils and our biodynamic spelt oil which helps to nourish and hydrate the skin during the process of exfoliation, leaving the skin soft, smooth & receptive to the moisturising products to follow.
Gentle exfoliants are a big part of my daily beauty routine because my skin tends to accumulate a lot of “gunk” with constant sweaty workouts and runs outside in the heat. Having a little extra grittiness in my cleanser is something I like a prefer to use once a day.
This exfoliant is great–it does the job of getting the grime off of my skin but its too harshly abrasive. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean.
Energizing Conditioner – £54.99 – 30ml (10ml received)
“A blend of organic and biodynamic essential oils, plant extracts and the energies of gems and crystals encourage hydration and moisture, leading the skin to its natural balance without being too oily or too dry.
I would classify this product (in regards to consistency as somewhere in between a cream and a serum. It has a nice weight to it and isn’t quite as heavy as a lotion, yet it sufficiently does its job of providing moisture. I rotate using this product in place of the serum and moisturizer. I use it right after cleansing.
Enriching Moisturizer – £58.99 – 50ml (10ml received)
“A blend of organic and biodynamic essential oils, plant extracts and the energies of gems and crystals – this is the final step of the AEOS Skincare Sequence to seal in all the positive benefits of hydration and penetrative moisturisation from the previous products. This light non-greasy moisturiser is absorbed quickly to help protect and hydrate the skin. Particularly beneficial for environmentally damaged, tired skin or if you are exposed to air-conditioned environments.
This moisturizer is nice for when my skin needs a little extra hydration boost. It thoroughly replenishes my skin without making my skin feel suffocated and goopy/dirty. A little dab of it will cover my entire face and neck. Great product to keep by the sink to follow with after washing.
Beauty Body Shower – £10.99 – 75ml (10ml received)
“A gentle cleansing wash for the body, containing a blend of organic and biodynamic essential oils, plant extracts and the energies of gems and crystals. Rich in rosemary, white birch and gardenia which leave the skin feeling fresh and soft.
This body wash is gentle and cleanses my skin nicely. It has the ideal richness and potency for a body wash–easy to apply and lather up and does not over dry skin.
Beauty Body Lotion – £35.98 – 75ml (10ml received)
“This moisturiser is full of nourishing organic and biodynamic oils and plant extracts to help hydrate and soothe, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth.
This lotion is rich and moisturizing with a pleasant, fresh scent. It leaves a lasting layer of moisture on my skin that is not goopy or sticky. It truly feels like it is nourishing and hydrating my skin. I use it everywhere except my face, where I use the serum and facial moisturizer AEOS products.
Cleansing Oil – £39.99 – 75ml (30ml received)
“An oil-based cleanser containing a blend of organic and biodynamic essential oils, plant extracts and the energies of gems and crystals, for skin that tends towards dehydration. The blend of sesame, avocado and spelt oils help in the removal of make-up and impurities for a gentle yet effective cleanse, whilst helping to maintain the delicate moisture balance of the skin. Can also be used for removing eye make-up.
I use a product like this as an “oil mask” when my skin gets dry and needs a restoration of moisture. I apply it for about 5 minutes, then wash off with warm water.
Like AEOS suggests, it is also wonderful as a makeup remover. It works best for me if applied to the area with makeup and then wiped off with cotton ball or square.
Dew Facial Wash – £39.99 – 100ml (30ml received)
“A gentle and mild cleansing wash containing a blend of organic and biodynamic essential oils, plant extracts and the energies of gems and crystals that helps to relax the skin for easier absorption of the plant extracts, whilst conditioning and hydrating oils from neroli, lemon and honey gently refresh your complexion.
I’ve never tried a facial wash spray before–its a great change of pace from the typical cleanser! This concoction does the job–my skin is clarified and clear after I wash it off.
Refreshing Hydrating Mist – £54.99 – 100ml (30ml received)
“A refreshing facial mist containing a blend of organic and biodynamic essential oils, plant extracts and the energies of gems and crystals offering a delicate and unique level of hydration, made from a carefully selected blend of fruit and flower hydrosols to refresh and balance the complexion. Spray a few times and enjoy its refreshing fragrance at the same time.
I’ve developed a recent affinity for facial mists and plant waters. They provide my skin with a mid-day mist that enables me to have fresh skin between morning and evening washes.
It smells fresh and herbaceous and helps balance my skin’s oiliness.
Love the great ingredients and the spray feature, which makes it quick and easy to spritz onto my face.
Realive Serum – £105 – 50ml (30ml received)
“A luxurious and intensive serum containing a blend of organic and biodynamic essential oils, plant extracts and the energies of gems and crystals that provide a multi-layered delivery of both hydration and moisture.
A light, pure, liquify serum that is perfect for use in the morning or evening. It isn’t super heavy on skin like some serums can be. The consistency helps it apply evenly to skin. I use it all over my face and neck–I’ll mix this product into my routine to replace my moisturizer and facial conditioner.
This is a great kit, great value for money if you compare to the full size products (the 30ml sample of the Realive Serum costs £63 alone)
