As a skincare fanatic, I obsessively try new products with the hope that ONE of them will provide me with that coveted glow I've been looking for. But I'm also a brand loyalist. When I find products that really work for me, be them Kiehl's, Sunday Riley, or Fresh, I stick with them. And I have a feeling that I'm going to a long, prosperous relationship with the products of Aenon's. A skincare brand "for minimalists who want to integrate natural, effective, and hassle-free products into their daily care routine without sacrificing comfort or convenience," Aenon's is an LA-made line that merges traditional herbal remedies with modern skincare practices. Not only do these products satisfy Angelenos' love of natural ingredients, but they are also formulated without petroleum, mineral oils, parabens, SLS, synthetic fragrances, and alcohol, which mean they work for my sensitive, breakout-prone, combination skin. Launching a new line of bath and body products, Aenon's was kind enough to allow me to try their new Palmarosa Body Soap and Bath and Body Oil.
The body products did not disappoint. The body soap is formulated with palmarosa oil with subtle hints of geranium and rose, and is really moisturizing with coconut oil and shea butter. The scent has an earthy feel to it, and the soap leaves that clean feeling, without your body feeling stripped of moisture. It's definitely a really nice, simple, and effective body soap.
The real treat is the Palmarosa Body Oil. Pump a few drops in the bath for a relaxing experience, or slather it all over your body to get some intense moisture. With meadowfoam oil, vitamin E, and Squalane, it's packed with ingredients that absorb quickly into the skin, without leaving it feeling greasy or oily. Like the soap, it has a mild, earthy smell. And it definitely left my typically-scaly legs looking silky and glowy. Bonus tip: it also works well as a massage oil! It has enough slip that you'll get some good use out of it, but since it absorbs quickly, you don't feel like a butterball afterwards.
