Awaken Organics - 4.0 Anti Ageing Defence Day Moisturiser
What our experts say...
The texture of this rich day cream makes it a real pleasure to use. It feels really nurturing on stressed out skin and immediately imparts a lovely radiance. Local manufacture and utilising local ingredients is such a plus, and would allow the brand to monitor adherence to their philosophies. Certification of this kind is also impressive, especially given the scale of the brand.
Impressed by their COSMOS and ecocert certification. Sea buckthorn, aloe and rosehip are lovely non-tox botanicals. Great to see a local brand looking carefully at water usage. Also the packaging has been well thought out.
Moisturising and protective, I’ve really enjoyed this day cream coming out of winter when my skin was dry and delicate. It softens the appearance of my fine lines and leaves my skin supple and hydrated.
Having just entered the 40s myself, I like that this night cream is tailored to the 40s and the changes my skin is going through (although I’m not a fan of the term “anti ageing”). Deeply hydrating yet not too heavy and perfect for daytime wear, this moisturiser contains a beautiful blend of ingredients including Australian native flannel flower, sea buckthorn and olive leaf. Will definitely continue use! I’m quite impressed with Awaken Organics’ efforts to source local ingredients (supporting Indigenous farming where possible) via organic and sustainable farming. I was also happy to discover that the plastic secondary packaging they use is in fact recycled and recyclable.
