My Arami essentials skincare Review has been long coming. I know I said I was done with Nigerian natural skincare brands/products on my Instastory after realizing that most of these brands just mix toxic things together in the name of “natural skin care” but the Arami Essentials brand is one Nigerian natural skincare brand that a lot of people have recommended to me lately as trustworthy.
In my last skincare post where I asked people to leave me their holy grail SkinCare products, I got more than a few “I swear by Arami essentials” comments, so of course, you know ya girl just had to give Arami a try. Natural skincare whore that I am.

My first impression of Arami Essentials from checking them out on Instagram was a good one. Their branding was minimalist and aesthetically pleasing, which made me really eager to try out the products.
Arami Essentials create both skin and hair care products but I really just wanted to try out their onyx body polish (black soap) and glow (face) scrub because I’m more of a skincare than hair care person obvs but they were out of the face scrub so I settled for the body and hair food and glow oil in addition to the body polish.Here's What I Think After Trying Out Products From Natural Skincare Brand - Arami Essentials!

Arami Essentials Onyx Body Polish.
Packaging: The packaging for all three products is pretty similar coming in a clear 250ml tub which seals well and makes for easy access. I also like that the tub is very lightweight. For some reason, I had assumed that it might be a bit heavy from the pictures I saw online so I was pleasantly surprised.
Feel: The onyx body polish is definitely my most used product of all three, as expected. I love me some black soap so I’m always eager to try that out first. I love that the Arami essentials black soap contains two of my natural skincare faves – honey and lemon! It also has that pasty feel (before you work it into a lather though) that I don’t quite like but It lathers very well!
Although it’s for both face and body use, the alaroro in me has/will keep using it for just my face. Nobody has told me that my skin is popping like I consistently got told when I used skinsational(which I can’t vouch for the Genuity of their products btw) but I noticed that the dark spots my monthly pimples leave have been clearing a bit faster than usual so issawin!
Arami Essentials Body And Hair Food.
Packaging: This also comes in the same 250ml clear tub.
Feel: Oh I love the smell of this product! It’s one of the first things that hit me when I opened it up. Although it’s a largely shea based product, it doesn’t have the usual scent of shea butter.
Now, I’m not the biggest fan of Shea butter (weird?) but I’ve been using this pretty frequently as it moisturizes my skin very well especially during this harmattan period. Also, a plus that it leaves my skin smelling quite nice too. I plan to start using this on my hair too.
Arami Essentials Glow Oil + Giveaway.
I really wish I had some opinions on this product but I’ve never been a fan of using oils on my face and I don’t think I’ll start now but hey, It smells DIVINE! And I’ve read only positive things about the glow oil and that’s why I’m giving it away to someone who might make better use of it!
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I’m currently doing a daily giveaway and this Arami glow oil is what’s up for grabs for today. I decided to switch up the rules for this win.
