The best way to encourage a healthy complexion is to assist its removal of dead and dry skin, and to aid the regeneration of new cells. Regular exfoliation will leave your skin fresh, but also maintain clean pores and help protect you from the elements. You can tell immediately when you meet… someone who exfoliates regularly, check out their forehead (seriously), you will see a layer of shine (or glow), which is a result of resurfacing their face more regularly to expose new skin.
We decided to send you something to help your routine this month… and not just any exfoliant! The Ahhh… Cosmetics Sugar Scrub and Matakana Skincare Face Polish are cruelty free, New Zealand made products with ethically sourced, natural ingredients, that work so well, and will leave you looking youthful with healthy, fresh skin.
The face polish in our boxes for October has carefully selected ingredients. It’s a soft exfoliant, refining dead skin and open pores with rice flour, but is gentle yet really effective, and totally awesome for sensitive skin. Passionate about her products, Matakana Skincare owner Lara believes it’s important to make sure our exfoliants aren’t too rough for the face, its different to the body, so this polish has been especially formulated to provide the gentle level of exfoliation needed.

Matakana skincare is literally handmade, Lara is the new owner and she doesn’t have giant mixers, or commercial equipment, each ingredient is chosen based on its healing, nourishing, cleansing, hydrating, exfoliating or nurturing abilities, carefully combined with just the right amount of this and that, then the product is carefully mixed and blended and packaged, all in the heart of her home. It's totally natural. Matakana Skincare have created this gentle face polish that exfoliates your skin while providing hydration to your pores and will leave your skin healthy and rejuvenated.
A sugar scrub is a great natural way to exfoliate your whole body and this peach smoothie flavour is refreshing and will help start your day the right way. October is a great time to start exfoliating our bodies more regularly. As we start to see more sunshine, and remove the winter layers, our skin is often in need of some extra TLC before you head out and enjoy the vitamin D. Ahhh… Cosmetics make handcrafted products that are all about pampering. From beautiful bath bombs and all natural soap bars, each treat they make is sweet scented and offers a little luxury in our busy lives. This sugar scrub contains coconut oil which also has antioxidant qualities, and with enough little peach delights to treat your body throughout the month this treat will have you glowing in no time.
