If the lead up to summer after a lengthy lockdown has left you feeling lacklustre (same), news of Emma Lewisham expanding of her Illuminating range couldn't have come at a better time. Already boasting a luxurious cleanser, exfoliant and day crème, the recently released face and body oil is your newest friend.
Treat your skin (honestly, we all deserve it) while knowing that you're using highly effective ingredients that aren’t nasty. What’s more, you can do it guilt free by sending the bottles back as part of the Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle.
The newly dropped Illuminating Face and Body Oil should be high on your Christmas wishlist, as a limited edition release that comes in summer inspired holiday packaging. Think antioxidant goodness, a sun-kissed mineral glow and a healthy skin barrier (essential under the Kiwi sun), thanks to the innovative oil-soluble Hyaluronic Acid formulation. Also containing botanical favourites macadamia, jojoba and olive, this decadent superpowered oil can be paired with your SPF for the cocktail you really need this summer.
The Illuminating Oil Cleanser is luxe and silky to put on, and you just know it won’t dry you out. Think flower enzymes, papaya, and chia. Summer festivities may be nearly over, but this cleanser has a year-round party trick. Splash some water on your face and it’ll turn into a light lather which easily washes off. Hydration station without the clogging.
Make sure you’re nurturing your skin (rather than attacking it) with exfoliation. Emma’s Illuminating Exfoliant is gentle and smells lightly floral, antioxidant rich Hibiscus flower being a key ingredient. Though it sounds tantalisingly edible, it isn't, but your skin will drink in the goodness!
Expand your illuminating toolkit with Brighten Your Day Crème. The delicate texture, the lush ingredients (check out the transparent list for a lesson in hydration and regenerate collagen production), and the genius detachable refill pod will quickly see this become one of your skincare staples. You might even skip the highlighter and let this crème do the glowing for you. You'll likely share the warm fuzzies with us seeing 'made in Auckland, New Zealand' on the jar because we love, love, love Kiwi businesses doing cool things.
Get your hands on these sustainable, luxe skincare saviours to face 2022 illuminated.
