Featuring in Splendour Box this month is The Products, a Perth, Western Australian skincare range developed and handmade by successful makeup artist Rebekah Clark. This natural range of products have been formulated using the finest organic, natural ingredients that are also vegan and environmentally friendly and only tested on humans.
As a makeup artist that has travelled the world and created looks for fashion publications such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Russh Magazine and more, what inspired you to develop your natural skincare brand, The Products?
Working 25 years as a freelance make-up artist, I have seen a lot of skin types and heaps of products!! I was always looking for a simple and effective range of products that I could trust and rely on without breaking the bank. I noticed women and men obsessed with expensive skincare brands and I just didn’t get it. I knew that less is more when it comes to sensitive skin plus it was increasingly hard to find something I liked and with ingredients I could understand. After 10 years research and testing out formulas with friends and family, I started the journey with The Products.
I recommend using The Face Polish once to twice a week…especially if you are prone to blackheads down the T-zone area.
Place a teaspoon sized portion in the palm of your hand and sprinkle in enough water to make a paste. Then, using circular motions, start at your nose area and work out to the rest of the face. Focus on congested areas and not to be used in the sensitive eye area. I know ladies who use this as a face mask and leave it on for 5 minutes for a deep detox. Simply rinse off with warm water to experience a smooth complexion.
The Face Polish includes the following ingredients: Rice, Oats, Sugar, Australian Zeolite Mineral, Australian White Clay and Lime Essential Oil. What properties does these ingredients have and how does it benefit our skin?
Organic rice, oats and sugar have been known forever for their skin cleansing and softening properties.
White Clay draws out chemical waste, toxins, dead skin cells whilst enriching the skin with mineral content.
Zeolite Mineral detoxes the skin by using its healthful, negatively charged minerals for any positively charged contaminants/pollutants, helping you to wash away impurities.
Lime Essential Oil is a welcome uplifting scent that also is an astringent and antiseptic. This helps skin that’s prone to acne or congestion.
