There is nothing better than finding all your favourite body care treats in one place, especially when they come beautifully packaged all together in a stunning gift set.
When Ezápé Naturals launched their Travel Size Gift Set* last month, I was very excited as the set features all of their skincare saviours in a luxurious white box with magnetic closer and vinyl Ezápé Naturals logo to the top. Each product is carefully nested in shredded paper and tissue, in the brand’s signature colours, to protect the glass jars and bottles in transit (and make it look beautiful too!).
The generous travel sized products are a great way of exploring the brand for the first time, giving to a green beauty lover no matter what the occasion or simply gifting to yourself as a little treat. The gift box is also incredible value for money, boasting a £5.00 saving compared to purchasing each product separately. The best news is that not only are the products themselves completely plastic-free but the beautiful box can be re-purposed after use, either as a gift box for another gift or as a storage solution. Thanks to the robust and rigid structure of the gift boxes, they make great drawer organisers, keepsake boxes or storage for make-up, jewellery, hair accessories or skincare on top of your dressing table or beauty shelf.
The products themselves are formulated with dry and sensitive skin types in mind, however they are great for other skin types too, especially during the seasonal change and when the colder weather starts playing havoc with our skin.
Rosemary Body Butter
Ezápé Naturals’ Rosemary Body Butter is one of my personal favourites, especially when my skin is feeling particularly dry or suffering from eczema flare-up’s. The simple ingredient list, comprising of shea butter, coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, vitamin e and rosemary essential oils, demonstrates the brand’s passion for clean and simple skincare that only contains the bare essentials when it comes to a highly nourishing and skin softening treatments.
The whipped formulation is incredible light, melting on contact with the skin and leaving behind a very delicate sheen which is non-sticky and absorbs within a few minutes. The scent of rosemary is perfectly balanced as it’s delicate but noticeable, yet doesn’t dissipate too quickly on the skin. After use, my skin always feels intensely moisturised thanks to the nourishing ingredients that not only soften the skin, but also protect and repair it too. The vegan friendly formulation, that contains 99% organic ingredients, certainly prevents my skin from flaking, feeling tight and improves its appearance after use. It is very special when you can find something which ensures your skin always looks and feels at its best, even when you have problematic skin, and Ezápé Naturals’ Rosemary Body Butter is that product for me.
Ezápé Naturals’ Chamomile Balm is a true hero-product, a silky smooth and soft balm that has a whipped texture that soaks into the skin beautifully yet gives it a nourishing boost of soothing moisturisation that works like a dream on any part of the body that is particularly dry and in need of some TLC.
The naturally anti-inflammatory balm is perfect for dry, itchy or inflammed skin anywhere on the body thanks to the beautiful natural ingredients including coconut oil, aloe extract, shea butter, beeswax, calendula oil, vitamin e and roman chamomile essential oil. The balm is great on hands, feet and any hard or dry skin and is even suitable for use on nappy rash. I personally suffer from dry eyelids and struggle to find something that is effective and is okay to use on the delicate skin around the eye. Thankfully, a thin layer of Chamomile Balm on my eyelids each night keeps the dry skin at bay and due to the calming formula, I don’t experience any irritation at all. If you ask my Mum, who is in her 50s, what her favourite product is she will always say Ezápé Naturals Chamomile Balm as not only does she use it on any dry patches on her face and body, but she also uses it as a foot balm each day. She loves it so much that she has even placed a custom order for a large jar so she doesn’t run out. It shows that Chamomile Balm is perfect for any age and any skin type, and is a skincare saviour you won’t want to be without.
Ylang Ylang and Lavender Body Oil
The Ylang Ylang and Lavender Body Oil is the latest member of the Ezápé Naturals family but is just beautiful as its buttery and balmy siblings. Ylang Ylang and Lavender Body Oil contains an array of skin loving oils such as macadamia, castor, peach kernel, hemp, camellia and vitamin e as well as essential oils of ylang ylang, lavender and roman chamomile. The formulation, which is 69% organic, is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals to keep skin moisturised while aiding wound healing and regenerating skin cells. The body oil also restores the skins natural barrier, maintaining its function to reduce water loss therefore allowing the skin to stay hydrated and moisturised for longer.
Ylang Ylang and Lavender Body Oil is deeply nourishing, leaving skin soft and smooth for the long haul, and after continued use, i’ve certainly noticed that my skin is less dry and flaky. It also works in harmony alongside the brand’s Chamomile Balm on dry patches, keeping skin in tip top condition and looking its best. The scent is certainly a treat for the senses and adds to the pampering experience of utilising the body oil in my routine. It is intense in ylang ylang, yet not overpowering, and as you begin to work it into the skin, lavender begins to shine through. The blend is incredibly calming and is perfect to use in your evening routine to help aid a restful nights sleep. I certainly found this incredibly useful to use before bed as both a body and bath oil (a few drops in warm water is all you need), and not only did it make me ready to sleep, it also made my skin feel softer than ever.
To say that Ezápé Naturals Travel Size Gift Set is a must-have when trying out the brand for the first time is certainly an understatement, as the value for money and beautiful presentation makes this a gift you’ll want to give. Each plastic-free product in the Travel Size Gift Set showcases that natural beauty products don’t have to be expensive to be effective and that sometimes less is certainly more. Ezápé Naturals are testament to the fact that clean beauty products can change your skin for the better and this Travel Size Gift Set makes giving the gift of great skin just a little bit easier.
