look – make time for moisture

Skin is our biggest organ and like the rest of our body, it needs moisture! The skin on our face is just as thirsty and if you wear makeup, it is essential that you prime your skin with moisture first. Make up helps skin look great, but let’s make sure we look after it underneath. Our newly launched Australian blue cypress face nectar is the ultimate skin quenching botanical boost that instantly adds moisture and hydration in a few drops. It is the perfect way to plump up skin, improve elasticity, and help make up to adhere better to the skin. Apply before you put on your makeup and you’ll notice how dewy and glowing your complexion is. Even if you’re in a hurry, don’t skip this step, it’s so helpful in helping you get the skin you want. Dry, lack-lustre, tired looking skin can take a hike because natural skin radiance is your new thing…

Talc may cause lung and ovarian cancer.
