I’ve had a long love affair with Aveda products since my Aunt introduced me to them years ago. There’s something in particular about the classic ‘Shampure’ scent that mesmerises me. I was recently treated to some products from the ‘Stress Fix‘ range and whilst it isn’t AS alluring in scent as Shampure, it is pretty darn lovely.
It’s hard not to be in a world where we are constantly switched ‘on’ – I feel enormous weights and pressures myself. Whether it’s my long and unnecessarily prolonged house move, or a factor as simple as exercise anxiety – facing a long commute home from work and having to throw on my gym gear to head out into the cold, dark night to work out. It’s often nice to make time for a little self care and if a product claims to help aid that all important me time, i’m sold.
Powered by essential oils, the Stress Fix range containis organic lavender oil, lavandin and clary sage. By nature, I am drawn to herbally scents and this cleverly balanced fragrance hits the nail on the head without being too medicinal.
Creme Cleansing Oil I like my showers extra hot and seriously steamy, and I don’t mean like that. One thing that I can guarentee is that I always, always, always feel better after a shower or bath, no matter how worked up or upset I may be. The Aveda Creme Cleansing Oil cleanses deeply whilst softening dry skin all thanks to organic babassu (a vegatable oil) and sunflower seed oils. The scent of this power house is amazing and leaves both you and your bathroom smelling fantastic.
Body + Hand Creme Once i’m out of the shower, applying a a luxe body cream is always a treat. There’s nothing more satisfying than smelling sassy and pulling on clean, fresh pjays before climbing into bed. I have the Stress Fix hand cream on my bedside table to apply before bed, it’s a ritual i’ve done for years. Perfect for dry, dehydrated skin both products contain organic shea butter and sunflower oil to protect delicate skin.
