At the last two ECMeetUp events, I received some body and skincare products from Iwori, a South African body and skincare brand that is made locally and inspired by the beauty of Africa. I wanted to try the range before I wrote a review, and now that I’ve been using some of the products for a while, I’d like to share my thoughts with you.
If you’re looking for a 100% vegan, sustainably sourced, environmentally friendly and reasonably priced skincare range, look no further than Iwori, a locally produced body and skincare brand.
Iwori’s products are made from sustainably sourced organic ingredients that are safe for your skin. The brand’s range of products is vegan friendly and none of Iwori’s products are tested on animals. And if, like me, you’re trying to reduce the plastic you use in your home, you’ll be happy to know that the cartons are made from recycled board, and all the bottles, jars and tubes are 100% recyclable.
Here’s a look at some of the Iwori products I’ve been using:
I was gifted the Baobab 24hr Age-Control Ultra-Nourishing Body Lotion. Marketed as a product for very dry skin, this body lotion is perfect for moisturizing winter skin. The lotion sinks into your skin and it doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky. It has a clean and fresh scent, but it’s not overpowering, making it a cream you can use every day without having to worry about the scent overpowering your perfume.
I’ve also been using the Baobab Anti-Ageing Night Cream. This face cream has been a lifesaver in winter, as I’ve had really dry skin (especially around my eyes). Before bed, I remove my makeup, wash my face with the Rooibos Gentle Cleansing Gel, and apply the night cream. I’ve only been using it for 2 weeks, but already my skin feels nourished and skin around my eyes is a lot less dry and flaky.
One of the other products in my goodie bag was the Rooibos Gentle Cleansing Gel. Since I’ve started using this product, my skin has been as soft and smooth as ever, and I’ve had fewer spots and blemishes. The scent of the cleansing gel is my favourite – a rooibos aroma that smells as divine as it sounds. If you’re looking for a face wash that leaves your skin feeling clean and super fresh, give this product a try.

If you’re looking for a body lotion that has a sweet scent that lingers after you’ve moisturised your skin, try the Marula 24hr Nourishing Body Lotion for normal skin. It definitely smells like marula, and it reminds me of warm summer holidays (probably because it smells like some of the self-tanning creams I used when I was a teen). It smells almost as good as the Rooibos Gentle Cleansing Gel. For soft skin that smells amazing, this body lotion comes highly recommended.
