Skin care can be a tricky world to understand. From deciding whether a one brand line is the best for you and choosing between expensive products that once you buy, you may not even like. With the huge number of products on the market it can be difficult to navigate your way through and find the best options for you.
Personally, I always liked the allure of a one brand skincare routine but never found a brand that truly nailed all the products in the line. They were also often extremely complex involving numerous steps that I honestly didn’t have the time, nor patience for. Enter Maaemo, a certified organic skincare brand developed by Naturopath and Herbalist Hilary Wilcox.
I discovered Maaemo at a wellness event where I was treated to a sample of their Vitalise Face Elixir and after a week of using, I was hooked. As someone with oily skin, face oils animate an image of the nightmarish oil-soaked face at the end of a hot Melbourne day. But this oil intensely hydrates whilst sinking into the skin allowing for an effortless glow and deep hydration without the “oily look”.
Full of hope and with my fingers crossed I purchased the rest of the Pure Collection Pack which included the Purifying Gel Cleanser and Hydrating Facial Moisturiser.
The Purifying Gel Cleanser is a god send for my oily skin and early morning wake up. The citrus smell was the perfect thing to wake me up as I washed my face in the morning. It left my skin feel clean and refreshed after washing and ready for the rest of the routine.
The Hydrating Facial Moisturiser is probably the best moisturiser I’ve ever used! It is extremely light weight and sinks right into the skin and provides a perfect base for makeup. Just like with the Vitalise Face Elixir I was nervous about layering hydrating products but doesn’t give me the oily skin I’m used to and instead leaves me feeling fresh and rejuvenated.
Overall, this skincare brand has made my dreams of a simple, one brand skincare routine that would leave me with hydrated, glowing but not oily skin, come true! On top of my love for the way this brand makes my skin look and feel there are a number of other fantastic attributes to the brand including the use of certified organic ingredients and recyclable packaging. To top it all off it is a small business started by a young female entrepreneur.
I highly recommend this brand to anyone who’s looking for an organic skincare brand to leave them looking or feeling their best!
