Despite being a Scottish brand, I've never really delved into what Arran Aromatics has to offer. However, I popped into their Glasgow Princes Square store earlier this month to pick up some products from their much-loved Feel Good Formulas range so that I could see what all the fuss is about.
Their Feel Good Formulas products are all about skin and body care and are packed with natural ingredients and essential oils. I love all four of the products that I've been trying, and I adore the simple clean packaging too.
Their Green Tea Eye Cooler Gel (£3.50) is the best bargain I have found in ages. It doesn't have any long-lasting skin benefits so I wouldn't use it in place of your usual eye cream; but it is a great cooling and de-puffing green tea and witch hazel treat for hot and tired eyes. I keep mine in the fridge for that extra ice factor!
In my baths I've been obsessed with the Lavender & Black Pepper Mineral Muscle Soak (£9). I would say that you get about 8 or 9 baths from one of these so, again, it's excellent value. Usually I find that the strong scent from bath salts disappear once they have dissolved in the water; but this relaxing fragrance remains and fills the room. I find these so soothing, and I'll definitely be repurchasing. The gorgeous jar these salts come in will be upcycled when finished too.
I find a lot of facial mud masks sting and are too intense for my skin; however the Arran Aromatics Bergamot & Mint Sea Mud Mask (£8.50) is amazing. The formula is very light and applies very smoothly. It smells very refreshing and isn't harsh on the skin. It contains natural Kaolin to draw impurities from your skin, along with Bergamot and Mint essential oils to tone, revitalise and combat oiliness.
Finally, I have been loving a good scrub with their Seaweed & Mineral Salt Scrub (£12.75). It is quite a harsh scrub; but does a great job at removing dead skin and giving it a healthy glow. It's also packed full of wonderful moisturising oils for baby softness and has a strong spa-like marine scent.
Can you recommend anything from Arran Aromatics?
