MARE & ITIS
As an avid traveller and skin care enthusiast, it became difficult to find suitable skin and hair care products in various Asian countries.
This is when an idea sparked: Anele decided to make her own using all natural products! Countless hours of research led to a love for essential oils and natural products. Skin and hair thrives on natural oils.
Mare & Itis started as a travel website to illustrate how easy it was to travel on a budget. Since then Anele introduced a splash of all things aesthetic - lifestyle and design. Anele is an Earth Sciences major, an aspiring Interior Decorator and a lover of all things avocado!
WHY I LOVE THEM
Anele got in touch with me about my possible interest in her collection. Finding out that she was Durban based, all natural and Earth conscious was a bonus as her natural products filled a gap on the directory as far as good quality home products go.
She had me at zesty kitchen cleaner and since using that for the first time I have only grown fonder of her other products which I can tell she makes with all her love.
The more we can move in the local direction in terms of our product consumption the better and I am so excited to introduce you to this brand.
THIS MONTHS CURATIONS
SKIN FACE OIL
TREAT YOUR SKIN
Anele has formulated the most hydrating skin toners and moisturising face oils.
This face oil for dry skin uses Sweet Almond Oil which is ultra moisturizing. The fatty acids within sweet almond oil help to remove the excess sebum in your skin that is responsible for clogging pores and, ultimately, causing breakouts. While essential oils will make you feel pampered and ensure that your skin gets a treat while you snooze.
I have enjoyed using this Mare & Itis skin oil and love that it is all-natural with none of the nasties. Use this on your chest and back too for beautifully smooth, hydrated Summer skin.
Directions: After washing and drying your face as you would normally, gently apply the face oil. Massage your face and neck with your fingertips.
Best used in the evenings.
JAMAICAN BLACK CASTOR OIL
AN INTERESTING ESSENTIAL
Jamaican Black Castor Oil has been hailed as a miracle oil for natural hair!
The black castor oil is made by roasting the castor beans and then using the heat to extract the oil. Castor oil is loaded with vitamin E, omega 9 and omega 6 fatty acids which are fantastic for moisturising hair! It keeps your hair looking fuller and shiny which is why many people use it to treat a receding hairline.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil is also fantastic when mixed with other beneficial carrier oils such as Argan Oil!
improves hair strength
prevents hair breakage
helps to regrow hair after scalp damage
leaves hair feeling fuller and thicker
HAVE TO HAVE IT
This Tea Tree hand sanitiser is one of my favourites and I use it all the time!
Packed with all the non-toxic goodness that leaves your hands feeling clean and moisturised, I far prefer this Mare & Itis option to anything in store.
What makes this must-have so great is that Anele has added vitamin E oil which ensures that the sanitiser does not leave your hands dry.
We have a long way to go before we are anywhere near "normal" as far as COVID-19 goes, and even if we ever go back to a COVID-free world, I don't think we will go a day without our sanitisers again!
