Emma Lewisham’s new range has been unleashed and faces rejoice.
Every single person I’ve chatted to lately has a denominator in common. Fucked, dry skin from lockdown. And I was in the same sad boat. Luckily, here in New Zealand, we were only housebound for eight or so weeks but, boy, did it mess with my skin. I went for a walk every day but a routine mix-up, job redundancy and healthy food lapse left my face in a pathetically sorry state.
Not a skincare regime kind of girl, I had no clue what to do and seeking guidance from Dr Google became overwhelming pretty quick. But, I fought through the information overload and found myself on the website of a New Zealand-made, all-natural skincare brand.
Emma Lewisham is, so I’ve learned, a pioneer in the clean beauty business and they’ve just added two superheroes of the skincare world to the mix — ‘Supernatural’ 72-Hour Hydration Crème and ‘Supernatural’ Triple Retinol A+ Face Oil.
Now, because I’m neither a chemist nor dermatologist, forgive my product description-paraphrasing schtick in an attempt to sound like I know what I’m talking about. I just know they work.
Supernatural 72-Hour Hydration Crème—
Whipped from a can or atop a gluttonous iced mochaccino-style monster of a drink is where my cream knowledge began and ended. But crème is a different beast. Emma Lewisham’s is 100 per cent natural with 30 high-performing botanical ingredients including pentavitin and kakadu plum. It leaves your skin plumped, hydrated, dewy, glowy and supple.
Supernatural Triple Retinol A+ Face Oil—
And oil. A liquid I’d previously pigeonholed purely as a kitchen condiment now gets lovely smeared across my face daily. Another 100 per cent natural product, the face oil contains 20 high-performing ingredients including citrullus lanatus plant, Vit A and bakuchiol, which has been proven to be as efficacious as synthetic forms of retonil, minus the synths and their associated side effects — irritation, dryness and redness. The oil’s plumping, repairs cellular structure and stimulates the production of collagen to lift and firm the skin.
