AEOS – Active Energised Organic Skincare seems to be knowing what they are best at: producing rich, luxury facial products that smell like a piece of heaven – or simply like a bouquet of rare, magnificent flowers that your lover gave you promising his heart.
I have had an opportunity to be introduced to AEOS products, which have left me amazed on how fresh skincare products can smell, at the same time moisturizing my skin yet controlling the oils on my cheeks and forehead, the places that regularly “shine” due to excess oils. It is said that AEOS is the next generation in advanced organic skincare – resonant preparations from the kingdoms of plants, minerals, colour and light.
AEOS stands for Active Energised Organic Skincare, which means that:
Active – the ingredients used in the products are “alive”; they have been sourced from a soil which has been nourished and activated for optimal performance.
Energised – usage of the unique energizing process to enhance each element contained within AEOS products.
Organic – the company owns a biodynamic, certified farm, where they grow as much as they can use for the products, sourcing other ingredients from organic and bio-dynamic farms across the world where necessary.
Skincare – new concept of skincare, since the products, as well as their usage, are unique.
I am happy to have had a chance to try six AEOS products, which should generally be part of a daily skincare routine.
It is said, that this particular cleansing oil is contains a blend of organic and biodynamic essential oils; plant extracts and the energies of gems and crystals in order to hydrate the skin.
I was guided to use the cleansing oil as the first product, especially just right before going to sleep. “Moisten cotton wool pad with warm water and add a few drops of the cleanser. Apply using upward sweeping movements over the face and neck”, said a leaflet that I got together with the product. To my surprise, I probably have not ever seen such a dirty pad ever! I used to use cleansing wipes in order to take my make up off, but I see the benefit of cleanser: it really takes it all off your face. Even though my daily usage of make up include only one coat of mascara and a little bit of blush, I was surprised to see that my cotton pad got so dirty that I had to take another one (and this one got dirty too!).
In addition to the product itself, it is also worth mentioning the package design: it is simple yet absolutely comfortable to use. Since all AEOS products are highly concentrating, it is worth knowing that you only need a couple of drops each time. Therefore, an easy applicator at the top of the bottle makes it comfortable to put exactly a couple of drops on a cotton pad (not too little yet not too many).
One particular thing that impressed me a lot is a great texture: even though it is a cleansing oil, it does not feel oily at all. Sure, it is rich and moisturizing, but my face did not feel greasy after application. Since the oil is made out of spelt oil, jojoba oil, grape, sesame seed and avocado oil as well as is rich in vitamin E, you could instantly notice a fresh flower smell.
Pros: great texture, soft and gentle yet not greasy. Amazing smell and great cleansing.
Cons: price (£40 = 350 DKK), yet I would argue that it is a reasonable price for a luxury product.
It is also worth mentioning that AEOS products work best when they are used together. After AEOS Cleansing Oil De-Maq it is suggested to use Dew Facial Wash, which cleanses your faces and opens pores.
