Eden Days Body are one of my favourite skincare brands as not only do they formulate affordable, high quality products that deliver great results but they are also incredibly eco-friendly and completely plastic free.
Eden Days Body offer a great selection of gifting ideas all year around, from small token gifts to larger bundles of products that are all beautifully presented. When I was compiling my Natural Skincare Christmas Gift Guide this year, I fell in love with the beautiful 100% Natural Mask & Scrub Set which was sure to complete any weekly skincare ritual.
The full-sized Clay Days Detox Face Mask and Zuki Zuki Face Scrub is joined by a bamboo spoon, ceramic mixing dish, instructional leaflet and bamboo brush, and is all contained in a gorgeous branded MDF chest with hinged lid. The gift set is designed to keep your skin in tip-top condition, with the scrub used on a separate day to complement the clay mask and prepare the skin for the detoxifying treatment.
Zuki Zuki: Face Scrub
During the Autumn and Winter months there is nothing better than finding a facial exfoliator that can rid the skin of any dryness without causing irritation from being too abrasive. Zuki Zuki is exactly that, a powdered scrub that combines with your favourite face oil and water (or hydrosol) to form a paste that buffs away dead skin cells yet doesn’t cause any redness.
Zuki Zuki contains a blend of Azuki beans, orange peel, baobab powder, horsetail, plantain powder and redbush to create a formulation which is high in polyphenols and antioxidants that will not only soften, smooth, brighten and exfoliate the skin but also promote healthy skin cell production and boost circulation. As well as this, Zuki Zuki is also great for acne prone and oily skin types too as it will help to absorb excess oils, treat blackheads and aid healing.
The powdered facial scrub is easy to mix into a paste and allows you to customise the mixture much like you would with a powdered face mask. Once worked into a paste, it applies easily and allows you to buff it across the skin without causing any irritation as it isn’t too abrasive and actually feels relatively soft during application. However, the exfoliating power of Zuki Zuki should not be under estimated, as its beautiful texture is still as effective as any other exfoliator i’ve used in the past and has a refreshing citrus aroma that makes it a pleasure to use.
My skin, which is incredibly dry especially at this time of year, certainly felt softer after just one use and as I had sloughed off dead skin cells, the appearance of my skin was much brighter. I’ve used this on several occasions now and have been thrilled with the results as it is certainly keeping flaky skin at bay and helping my skin which hates the cooler weather and central heating. Exfoliating your skin is an essential step in your weekly skincare regime and my experience with Zuki Zuki has only been positive making it a product I highly recommend.
Clay Day: Clay Face Mask
Clay masks are one of the best weekly rituals to give the skin a deeply nourishing yet detoxifying treatment to keep it looking and feeling at its best. Clay Day, like Zuki Zuki, is a powdered product that allows you to create a bespoke treatment each time you mask. Clay day, which is 100% natural calcium Bentonite Clay, will tone, hydrate, repair and detox the skin while also improving the appearance of scarring, fine lines and dull complexion. However, Clay Day is so much more than a simple face mask as it can also be utilised on nappy rash, burns, infections, insect bites, bee stings, eczema, psoriasis – and even as a hand mask and underarm treatment to eradicate deodorant build-up.
I tend to use a clay mask that contains other skin loving ingredients too, so this made a nice change for me utilising clay on it’s own. The soft clay made blending incredibly easy and the brush applied a thin layer in a matter of seconds thanks to the large size. The mask is designed to dry on the skin, which is an alien concept to me as I usually spritz clay masks down, but I was pleasantly surprised when it rinsed from the skin with ease and left my face feeling incredibly smooth and soft. My skin was slightly pink on removal, something which the brand explain is normal, yet I could already see the detoxifying results on my skin as I could see my pores more clearly and all flaky skin had been eradicated. After only around five minutes, my skin had returned to normal colour and really did look glowing in its appearance. After a few uses, the results were better than ever and my skin has been reaping the benefits of the simplistic clay mask that has definitely improved my congested pores and kept my skin free-from breakouts. Even though I have a dry skin type, it certainly hasn’t dried my skin out or left it feeling tight, and i’ve noticed that my products absorb into the skin much quicker after use.
I have in fact used this as a pampering treat for my hands and have been impressed by the results. Much like the improvement to my skin when using it as a face mask, my hands felt incredibly soft after use and looked much better in their appearance. The Clay Day Mask has been a huge success as both a face and hand mask and I am looking forward to seeing the other ways I can utilise it into my skincare routine.
Eden Days products never fail to impress with the amazing results I experience each time. What is more impressive is that the products are incredibly affordable yet still provide high quality results that have an impact upon your beauty regime. The gift sets that the brand have available all year demonstrate the true passion they have for green beauty, making them available to the masses with no limitations on age, gender or skin types – just beautiful products for all.
