Revive Morning Bath & Shower Oil is a detoxifying, balancing blend, perfect after a little overindulging, after a long flight or when generally feeling sluggish.

These oils are simply wonderful. You can either add 2 capfuls to full bath or massage over your torso before showering. I like to add two capfuls to the bath once it has run and then give it a swirl. The amount of oil needed is minute really to give you such a incredible uplifting and comforting aroma, that not only fills the bathroom but also drifts round the rest of the house! I absolutely adore essential oils in the bath and these lovely oils are already blended which makes them a quick, no fuss relaxing bathing experience.

I’m in love with all three scents which are all very different, but equally as soothing and comforting. I have been looking forward to my daily bath with these oils. If you like essential oils then I can guarantee you would love these oil blends. They are little bottles of luxury!

Renew Rose Massage and Body Oil is an intensively nourishing blend of essential oils, ideal for improving the condition of dry, devitalised or irritated skin and effective in helping to protect against stretch marks during pregnancy. Essential oils tone, whilst evening primrose oil, which is rich in essential fatty acids, softens and smoothes the skin. This light oil is easily absorbed, improving skin texture and with noticeable softening results. Particularly recommended for swimmers, sunbathers and those whose skin is exposed to the elements.

Key ingredients:

Rose – euphoric, feel-good oil, renowned for its skin enhancing properties.
Neroli – has a soothing effect, relaxing for body and mind.
Evening Primrose Oil – with a 10% GLA content, has a highly moisturising and conditioning action: softening, smoothing and optimising the skin’s natural regenerative process.

I’ve one word for this product…..luxurious! It is quite expensive, but most certainly is deemed worthy of its price tag in my opinion. I’ve been using this after my evening bath and I find a little goes a really long way. It leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft and hydrated and not to mention, smelling absolutely incredible. The subtle scent lingers on the skin for hours and hours. I’m seriously in love with this product!

The Overnight Repair Mask is an intense treatment to smooth and firm the skin’s appearance. Use once or twice a week, in place of your regular night cream, see and feel the difference as powerful plant extracts work while you sleep, for enhanced vitality and skin plumping action. If skin is particularly out of condition, try an overnight treatment of Intensive Skin Treatment Oil under an application of the mask, for an instant rejuvenating effect.

Key ingredients:
Millet Seed – tightens and firms, and has antioxidant properties
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide – stimulates collagen
Strawberry Seed – moisture retaining and skin plumping
Rose & Geranium essential oils – stimulate circulation and cell renewal

Instructions for use: Apply to face and neck after exfoliation and leave for at least 2 hours then rinse off with warm water. Follow with skin tonic, serum, face oil and moisturiser. For maximum results leave overnight and if skin is extra dry apply over a layer of face oil. Use two or three times per week.

I like to apply this overnight as I feel you get the maximum benefit of it this way. It is a very rich cream that once applied does not feel at all greasy. It dries down which is great as I dodn’t have to wait long before I can lie on my pillow without the worry of the cream transferring. It does leaves a bit of a film on the skin though, which isn’t a bad thing, it is after all a face mask.

Like the other Aromatherapy Associate products, has a lovely aroma which is very relaxing, comforting and perfect for bedtime. In the morning I cleanse my face as normal to remove any remaining residue left by the cream itself. Upon the initial application I can feel an instant tightening of my skin, and once removed in the morning, my skin is visibly brighter and feels smoother and tighter. The effects aren’t permanent mind you, but it does give a few hours of a brighter, tighter and deeply hydrated complexion. It is very expensive, but I think it’s perfect for special occasions or for simply when your skin needs an intense boost!
