Product of the week: EMERGINC SCIENTIFIC ORGANICS AT-HOME FACIAL PEEL + CLARIFYING KIT
Most beauty bloggers I’ve met, including myself, tend to specialise in one area of cosmetics whether that’s makeup, hair, nails or skincare.
We’ll then talk about said topic with passion and sincerity for years – despite how many times we’ve covered products that fall under that specific beauty umbrella.
My forte happens to be skincare, with makeup coming in a pretty close second.
I believe to truly master a beautifully made-up face, though, you need to start with a great base and that comes from having gorgeous skin thanks to hero, hard working, skincare products.
My latest find that I’m loving is from EmerginC – a range of skincare products that boast 100% natural ingredients with 70% of those organic.
EmerginC’s Scientific Organics At-Home Facial Peel and Clarifying Kit, $119, has been a true godsend for when my skin has broken out from stress or just hormones.
This at-home kit contains two cute glass jars filled with 60 pads soaked in potent, active, natural ingredients.
When opening the first jar containing the Peel Pads, a strong citrusy sent will hit you straight away – that’s the fruit acids you’re detecting. You’ll only need two Peel Pads max to cover your entire face in one sitting.
Fruit acids, lactic acids and soothing aloe vera will strip away dead skin cells, remove oil build up in your pores and dry out stubborn pimples.
Using two fingers, gently rub the pads all over clean cleansed skin in circular motions. The fruit acids will naturally exfoliate and remove dead skin cells alone, so don’t buff too hard as it’s unnecessary.
After rubbing on, leave for 2-3 minutes and enjoy the subtle tingle – this is how you know the active ingredients are getting to work and you’ll have a fabulous glow in a few hours. Not only will your skin feel smoother, but your fine lines will look less obvious and your complexion will look brighter and more radiant as well.
After your three minute wait (just enough time to boil the kettle and make a cup of tea – I’m such a nanna in the cooler months), wash off with cool water and pat your face dry.
Next, take the Clarifying Pads jar. These cotton discs smell a little different and quiet medicinal thanks to herbal oils like tea tree, cypress, green tea and willow bark.
Take one pad and swipe it all over your face making sure to get in the tight corners around your nose as well as your hair line.
Cypress oil will soothe sore broken skin as well as clarify oily and congested pores, tea tree will kill any remaining bacteria (great for anyone who suffers from hormonal acne), green tea will relax stressed-out skin and willow bark, a natural exfoliant, will budge any scaly skin still lingering on your face.
After rubbing the Clarifying Pad on your skin, let the formula soak in for a couple of minutes and don’t wash it off. Once completely absorbed into your pores finish up by applying a soothing, light weight, moisturiser to your skin. EmerginC’s Phytocell Cream is pretty fabulous due to it’s hydrating and anti-ageing qualities.
I’ve really loved this easy to use at-home face peel kit. My skin eagerly slurped up all of the natural and organic ingredients each time I’ve used this kit (I stick to once a week) and it’s shown in how glowy and vibrant it’s become.
Have you used an at-home face peel before? How often do you exfoliate? Do you actively look for natural and organic skincare products?
