In august I attended the store launch of 2 new ranges (Cocoa butter and Olive and Avocado) at Eness Cosmetics in Birmingham. At the end of the event I was given a bag of products to try out.
Eness is a company that heavily focuses on the ethics behind their products guaranteeing them to contain natural ingredients, have a sustainable formula, be vegan friendly and cruelty free. Eness also supports the Save the Rhino trust in Namibia so purchasing their products means you’re making a contribution to a worthy cause.
The first thing I noticed about the products was the packaging. It’s simple with a lovely illustration. They’re the kind of products that look perfect on display. The prices of the new range starts at £6.50 for hand cream and goes up to £15 for diffusers.
Cocoa Butter hand wash £8.50
The hand wash is of great quality. The cocoa butter scent is quite strong but as I liked the scent I didn’t mind. The soap lathered well without being too excessive to the point of drying my hands out. In fact it was moisturising and left my hands feeling soft. It’s the ind of soap that I would recommend for people if their day involves regularly washing their hands.
Cocoa Butter Body oil £12.50 full-size
This products was great to put on my skin after showering and the cocoa butter smell lingered for a while after applying. The oil itself was light and rubbed into my skin with ease without leaving it looking greasy or leaving a heaviness on my skin.
Cocoa Butter body lotion £12.00
I was a big fan of this product of all the ones that I’ve tried for an array of reasons. Firstly I loved the smell of it. Secondly it’s a moisturising lotion. In the past I’ve found certain lotions to be drying on my skin or they only feel moisturising for a short while. However this product was great because it left my skin feeling soft. Some of the active ingredients include coconut water, cocoa butter and Vitamins E, A and C. I was surprised to see in the full list of ingredients included vegetable oil but after doing a bit of research read that it works well on dry skin.
Olive and Avocado hand lotion £6.50
I love the fresh scent if this hand lotion and find that it works well. I’ve been carrying it with me to work to use throughout the day. I’ve found it moisturising and it’s become one of my regular products.
