Today's blog is reviewing some of the most exciting and refreshing products to grace our studio for a very long time. Hammamii; a locally produced line of the most luxurious, natural, halal and chemical free spa products you will ever use. Soon to be used in some of the most luxurious spas in the region, Hammamii also offers the same range for your own home - to take your basic shower and bathing experience to new heights.
I tried out a selection of the products to see if the ritualistic cleansing of the traditional hammam is the way forward...
The roots of this brand come from the traditional Middle Eastern hammams, where cleansing wasn't just a quick shower with some body wash. It was a ritual. Each stage of it benefiting the body and soul in some way to make the experience special; purifying, exfoliating, nourishing and protecting.
The Hammamii range offers 8 replenishing rituals ranging from Morocco, through Egypt and Tunisia to the UAE and Turkey.
I tried out 6 products from the huge 28 strong line of masks, exfoliants and milks. Here's how I got on:
Next I used the Solaire body exfoliant - an oil based citrussy body scrub substance full of yummy lemon, argan oil and solar salts. I do like body scrubs that are oil based, they leave the skin super silky and it wasn't annoying to rinse off at all.
I followed this up with the Atay Moroccan tea body wash which smells so much like the tea I love to drink it was hard not to have a taste! The natural-ness of the ingredients really can't be disputed - the whole bathroom ends up smelling like you're in the most amazing fresh produce isle of a grocery store.
The last product I used was the one I was most excited about; the Cacti Facial Elixir. Made with three completely natural ingredients only, namely; Argan Oil, Prickly Pear Oil, and Lavender Oil. The reason for my excitement? The Prickly Pear Oil - did you know it is the most expensive essential oil in the world? Extracted from the seeds of the prickly pear cactus, they must be harvested by hand and are extremely delicate. It's benefits for your skin go on and on but include strong anti-aging and anti-oxidant properties. It smells divine and feels wonderful - again easily absorbed into the face after my usual facial cleansing routine was finished.
I'll keep you posted for their spa availability and where you will be able to purchase the home kits also. All the bottles are also made from recyclable plastic and the products are completely cruelty free, natural, halal and chemical free. They're just amazing!
Toodles for now!
