A few weeks ago I headed downtown in the heat and humidity for a press event featuring an amazing Australian brand that is quite popular with those who actively avoid artificial additives. Admittedly, I was not familiar with Dr Roebuck's before that night but now I can’t get enough! What I’m drawn to most, is the sheer simplicity of the ingredient lists and the nourishment of each well devised formula. There are only a handful of botanicals, vitamins and oils infused in each product (all of which you can pronounce) yet the brand utilizes some of the best elements nature has to offer.
If you suffer from dehydrated, flaky, dull skin, then you need this FACE moisturizer. With rising temperatures, indoor fans, heavy makeup, air conditioning systems and UV exposure, skin requires major rejuvenation and as we move into fall, dryness prevention is imperative! This cream is ultra rich and luxuriously hydrating (kind of like body butter for the face) with the perfect pampering texture. The formula sinks in deeply for layers of skin softening goodness and the finish makes my face feel silky, cushiony and incredibly supple! There are not many products that instantly transform the skin and lock in moisture all day, but this one does! It also includes: Rosehip Oil to regenerate tissue and reduce wrinkles plus Vitamin E, Macadamia Oil and Lavender Oil to calm and combat stress. The cream retails for $59.95.
The Reverse Aging Serum is also very rich and hydrating with a viscous-like, lightweight texture minus the stickiness or residue. The serum also doubles as an eye treatment and is infused with an exclusive base made from the “CNYouth Molecule” consisting of: Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins to restore and boost the skin and Carnosine - ranked one of the most important anti-aging supplements. It also helps increase collagen production, improves the appearance of sun damage, reduces wrinkles, firms, prevents moisture loss and even diminishes hyperpigmentation and dark under eye circles! When layered under the moisturizer, the combination creates lush, dewy layers of nourishment that have a resilient, youthful effect. The only thing I would suggest is rethinking the medicine dropper applicator as it doesn’t really work with the consistency of the formula. Other than that, I absolutely love it! The serum will be available September 15th for $79.95.
Everyone needs a good lip balm and this blend of Shea Butter, Macadamia Oil, Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Grapefruit Oil and Peppermint Oil alleviates dryness and makes lips feel kissably soft and healthy. You can pick it up for $9.95 and I love the fresh, delicious scent!
The Polish is one of my favorite products...okay truth be told, they are all great, but this formula is a 2-in-1 facial scrub and mask! The lush cream-mousse formula with micro-fine jojoba beads gently removes dead surface cells for bright, smooth, glowing results. The conditioning agents quench dry skin while an invigorating blast of Peppermint, Grapefruit Oil and White Tea Extract refreshes and energizes. This formula is safe for sensitive skin since it is non-abrasive and greatly improves texture and moisture balance. You can get the Polish for $39.95.
