Product Review and Giveaway! CLOSED
Asili Cutcile Oil
Pamela Jones-Willis, owner of Asili Bath & Body, and I met on facebook. I asked her about her products and specifically the cuticle oil and she was kind enough to send me some samples.
Her website is Asili Bath and Body Products and her facebook page is HERE.
She offers great advice via facebook, you should definitely check her out there as well.
Here is a bit of her bio:
"Founded by Pamela Willis in 2000, Asili, which means nature in Swahili specializes in all-natural bath and body products. Willis started experimenting with natural products such as shea butter, which has been used for centuries to soften and protect skin and hair in African cultures. From there she created a wide variety of products with fragrances ranging from her extremely popular Almond scent to her exclusive Special Edition Mango.
Asili all-natural bath and body products were inspired by Willis's desire to use the finest quality all-natural products and when she couldn't find a product that met her demanding tastes she created her own. Most commercial products contain more water, emulsifiers and fillers than the Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter that their labels claim. Asili consistently provides the highest quality bath and body products by utilizing nature's finest oils, butters, herbs and essential oils.
Asili products are made daily in small batches to ensure the freshest and best quality possible. Asili products are all natural and do not contain synthetic oils, mineral oils, petrochemicals, artificial bi-products, alcohols or artificial colors.
Asili also specializes in product customization and offers one-on-one product consultations where customers are able to personalize their products by creating special fragrant blends or specialized body products to suit their specific skin care needs such as: allergies, sensitive skin and eczema with special oils and butters."
Her body butter is heaven, so rich and smooth and absorbs well into the skin...BUT her cuticle oil is the BEST!
I swear I am in love with the scent and well it makes my cuticles and hands look FABULOUS!
The cuticle oil smells like lemons infused with a light spring rose. I'm not a fan of rose scented products, BUT THIS scent is light and NOT obnoxious smelling like some rose products.
The cuticle oil is described as:
"Moisturize dry cuticles with moisture rich Jojoba and Sweet Almond oils, Vitamin E oil Lemon and Rosewood essential oils."
I love the fact that the oil comes in a dropper, this allows me to use it in my water for my weekly hand/cuticle soak, I also put some in a bottle, so I could brush it on my nails after a manicure, I also drop some in my hands along with my hand lotion to give it that special touch...aahhh heaven!
She also has Body Butter which she can infuse with a custom scent of your choice and get this...she can imitate most perfumes and colognes that are in the market and add this to your butter.:):)
Her Body Scrubs and Sea Salt Scrubs come in a large container with a very attractive shell for scooping out the salt...ingenious! I can't tell you how annoying it is to have body salt and sugar stuck under your nails in the shower, it is the worse feeling! The shell idea is perfect!
She also has Foot Butter, Body Oil, and Bath Salts! Oh and don't forget the kiddies, she has Body Lotion for them too!
So because I am IN LOVE with this cuticle oil, I asked her if I could sponsor a giveaway and she VOLUNTEERED the cuticle oil for free...so sweet! The oil will be sent directly from Asili.
