Girl Undiscovered’s new Full Bodied products. Image supplied.
It’s no secret that here at FashioNZ we love a good natural skincare brand, but what we love about Girl Undiscovered and what sets them aside from the rest are their unique, potent and natural ingredients. They source them both in our own back yard and from all corners of the earth to create only the best ethically produced products for your skin and their latest range called Full Bodied is no different. The products in this range all contain three magic ingredients – Kanuka, yes Kanuka not Manuka, which contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which enables your body to heal wounds and cuts and relieve aches and tensions. Thanaka tree bark which has anti-bacterial and anti-aging properties to help your skins collagen production and skin elasticity, Thanaka is also said to be a magic cure for problematic skin, drawing out impurities, reducing redness and relieving dry skin. The final wonder-ingredient is cold-pressed coconut oil which is great for skin repair so people suffering from eczema would benefit from this product.
The Pink Skies Beauty Balm is the first product in this range, it is great to use on just about anything, from your lips, to your cheekbones, your cuticles, or your dry heels, the balm provides nourishment with those three wonder-ingredients as well as New Zealand bee propolis. I love this little tub, I keep it in my handbag and use it on my lips and the skin around my thumbs that has been damaged from picking when I’m deep in thought.
The next product in this range is the Stint In The Wilderness Body Scrub which contains the three magic ingredients as well as Capuaçu butter and cinnamon granules, this scrub is so decadent, it has a soft, buttery texture and the natural cinnamon granules give it a beautiful smell – I use this on my legs to exfoliate the dead skin away before shaving, I tend to get itchy patches on my legs after shaving, especially in winter so this has helped a lot to relieve that.
The final product in the Full Bodied Range is the Soaked In Sunshine Body Oil, this contains the amazing KawaKawa leaf extract which has been used in ancient Maori healing methods for healing and anti-inflammatory healing. The oil also contains antioxidant almond and coconut to provide your skin with nourishment, I use this oil all over but especially on my legs after shaving to give my skin a silky, nourished and moisturized finish.
If you like the sound of this range then you will love the rest of Girl Undiscovered’s products, all of the products are ethically produced, supporting small villages in remote parts of the world including Maynmar in Burma and Bali and also right here in New Zealand. All of their products are free from parabens and are cruelty free with no animal testing involved.
