Naturally anti-ageing

The clue as to why Absolute Essential Untouched: Intensive Serum is such a wonder is in its name, “Untouched”. With eight natural, certified organic and unrefined superstar carrier oils in the formula, it has no added fragrance or cheap fillers. This vegan, crueltyfre­e, ultra-nourishing serum has a heavenly natural scent and is specially formulated for sensitive skin.

It contains the certified organic skin-loving oils of sea buckthorn, castor, jojoba golden, apricot kernel, argan, rosehip, evening primrose and wheatgerm to give your skin super-hydration, balance, and a youthful, dewy glow. absolutees­

Show me the honey

Multi-tasking Kaea The Cleanser Multi-Active Gel Balm, $155, is an e ective cleanser as well as a leave-on mask when rubbed well into the skin. Its instant hydrating e ect is obvious to the eye as well as skin feel.

Hero ingredient­s include Tahi award-winning, biodiversi­ty-positive UMF 15+ manuka honey and contains high concentrat­ions of kawakawa and kiwifruit seed oil. Clinical trials have shown it stimulates cell proliferat­ion, renewal and firmness by up to 70 per cent. kaeaskinca­

Shea pampering

The texture of Koa Magnesium Body Butter is light and flu y like a sou lé and melts to a magical massage oil. With three gorgeous scents to choose from we love Koa’s Mini Magnesium Trio set, $47.50. Uplifting Lemongrass for morning; Peppermint for cooling muscles after exercise; and Lavender to help with sleep. All three help to relax muscles and relieve aches and pains from a simple muscle cramp to restless legs. My personal fave is the Lavender, which was runner-up at the Best of Natural Awards 2023 in the Hair & Body Balms & Butters category. koaorganic­

The One to the rescue

Recently I fried my face sitting beside a campfire and got a nasty heat rash on my cheeks. One way to treat heat rash is to wash the face with cold water and let it air dry sans cream but I’m not a fan of dry feeling skin! Then I remembered Aleph’s fragrance-free The One Reset and Restore Moisture Cream, $120. It’s a day to night moisturise­r that feels gorgeous, and it helped calm my complexion. alephbeaut­

Skin and planet friendly

This is a huge shout out for Scenturie Regenerate Natural Eye Cream! It contains two upcycled ingredient­s – apple seed oil and resveratro­l, the latter extracted from the Japanese Knotweed plant (an invasive weed in many countries) which has one of the highest concentrat­ions of resveratro­l, a potent antioxidan­t that helps to stimulate collagen production and protect the skin from premature ageing.

Nice everywhere

I’ve been using Ashley & Co Tui & Kahili Washup All- Over Body Wash, $40, for the past few months and will be for months to come thanks to the super duper 1000ml refill, $45. It’s PHbalanced which means it doesn’t sting your neither region. It smells absolutely heavenly, so using it is a luxurious experience as you inhale a beautiful blend of delicate lily, wild ginger, mimosa, sandalwood and ylang ylang. Plus, it’s hydrating. ashleyandc­
