I set myself a small goal at the beginning of 2021 to look into more New Zealand brands, where I can shop locally & where I can support small New Zealand businesses. I first came across Ahhh Cosmetics New Zealand was in their first initial lockdown! I couldn't wait to place my first order & I was disappointed!
"At Ahhh we handcraft our delectable products to make you fizz with anticipation to matter what your day throws at you. Ahhh is a vibrant, playful, luxurious range of bathroom beauties handmade with the love in New Zealand. With names like Coco Lime, Lollipop, Lemon Meringue, Peach Smoothie & Raspberry Marshmallow, our Ahhh range is designed to indulge your senses to elevate your mind, body & soul."
"From our soap, moisturiser, shampoo & conditioning concentrated solid bars, to our effervescent bath bombs, at Ahhh we use the very best of carefully hand selected, natural & organic ingredients. And of course, all Ahhh products are free from nasties like hard detergents, paragons & SLS that harm your body & our precious ecosystems when washed down the drain. Our secret ingredient is nature's superstar, coconut oil. This multi-tasking natural will used on skin & hair is celebrated for its anti-microbial, anti-bacterial & anti-fungal properties. Combined with other skin-loving ingredients like almond oil, cocoa butter, activated charcoal, tea tree, sugar, fruits, herbaceous botanical, goat's milk, loofah & New Zealand native beeswax & Manuka Honey. Ahhh products are packed with a bounty of natural goodness."
Ahhh Cosmetics create soaps, bath bombs, hair products, sugar scrubs, solid moisturisers, shower steams & bath salts. They have the most gorgeous natural scent range which consists of but isn't limited to Lavender, Grapefruit, Lemongrass, Manuka Honey, Rose & Chamomile & Raspberry & Vanilla.
I think I have tried one of everything from their store with the exception of the shampoo & conditioner bars. Everything I have tried, I would definitely repurchase & have already have repurchased quite a few of the bathroom treats! If I had a to choose a favourite scent I think it would have to be either Raspberry & Vanilla or Lavender.
If you're looking to support a local business & want to try some gorgeous new bath/shower products, I cannot recommend Ahhh Cosmetics enough! It really does feel pretty amazing to be supporting a local business!
