What our experts say...


I love this elixir, I have been using it first thing in the morning and last at night. I love the hemp and the aroma is blissful. Bakuchiol is one of my favourite ingredients! I love how they support smaller organisations and women’s groups

–Carla King-Turner


This was one of my favourite products from the awards, this serum was a delight to reach for every night! The Jasmine scent was intensely relaxing before bedtime, and the nourishing, rich texture left my skin feeling hydrated with a noticeable glow. I love their use of natural, plant-based ingredients to mimic the anti-ageing effects of retinol. I love that they have spent over a decade being cruelty-free! FSC Certified, vegetable inks, recycled packaging (such gorgeous blue glass bottles), their work for a variety of charities as well as Good Fund are all wonderful achievements!

I love this product for someone trying to avoid retinol. With the good amount of Bakuchiol it contains, it would be an excellent option for someone looking for an alternative. The addition of Hemp oil makes this super healing and anti-inflammatory and I love squalane for its lightweight qualities and compatibility with many skin types! Overall I enjoyed this oil in my night time regime and woke up looking healthy and glowing after use. I love that this brand uses refills and takes great care in the detail with their packaging to ensure it is environmentally friendly.
