WHY AA SKINCARE SHOULD BE ON YOUR RADAR (& A SNEAK PEEK AT THEIR NEW CHRISTMAS GIFT SETS)
Bristol-based Amphora Aromatics, one of the UK’s biggest suppliers of aromatherapy/essential oils, was the springboard for AA SKINCARE and AA’s new season gift sets are well worth a look.
It’s a while since I’ve come across a brand where the plant and flower extracts feature so prominently – and yet, the price point is so good!
The new Christmas sets start at just £12.50 for the Vitamin Boost Face Duo, and you can take a look at what’s in each set, below. We tried this brand during summer’s Baby Awards and really liked it (AA Skincare was shortlisted).
The Helping Hands Kit £13.50
The name AA Skincare didn’t really do anything for me at first, I thought it was a pharmaceutical brand when I saw it on an email (until I realised the connection with Amphora Aromatics) and the winter gift sets may not be very Christmassy from a packaging design perspective but they do look refreshingly clean and zen.
The textures, ingredients and heritage of this company all tick a lot of boxes and the brand’s aromatherapy roots shine through…rose, lavender, frankincense, jasmine, sandalwood, palmarosa, peppermint and ginger, etc.
There’s a new Natural Remedy Kit which would be a cute gift for a mum, featuring an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, calming “first aid” trio of Arnica, Lavender and Teatree gels.
Here’s what’s in the new season gift sets, which all hover under or just over the £20 price tag.
