Natural skincare brand Handmade Heroes presents a handy care package curated with all the essentials you’ll need for a proper pampering sesh.
Picture this: you’re dead tired after a crazy day at work. Y’know, the kind of day where you just want to jump into the shower and give yourself some TLC? And then boom! Your doorbell rings and you’re delivered a care package filled with goodies for your skin and body. Sounds pretty sweet, huh? Well, homegrown skincare brand Handmade Heroes has just the thing for you.
A rad care package your skin will thank you for
Handmade Heroes’ Best Seller Care Package ($64.90) has all the essentials for a spa sesh at home. What’s inside: a specially curated set of Beauty Warrior Face Mask in Australian Pink Clay or French Green Clay; a choice of the Super Duper Nourishing Body Scrub in Rose Petals or Butt Kickin’ Deep Detoxing Coffee Scrub; Cocolicious Luscious Lip Scrub and Hyaluronic Lip Dew – all packaged in a personalised gift box.
It’s the perfect present for birthdays, anniversaries or a special gift for your loved ones (even those on quarantine). And did we mention the products are natural with no added preservatives? We’ve tried the products ourselves and let’s just say we’re still up in skincare heaven.
A body scrub that’s tough on nasties but gentle on your skin
Firstly: A+ for the choice of name. The Super Duper Nourishing Body Scrub is, well, truly super duper. Once we opened the protective seal (to retain freshness of the product), we were hit with a soothing rose scent. Slather on the luscious scrub filled with crushed rose petals and nourishing shea butter, almond oils, sunflower extracts and rose geranium oil. Unlike some scrubs that feel like sandpaper, this gently eradicates build up and dead skin. After scrub-a-dub-dubbin’, let it sit a few minutes for all the good stuff to soak in. You’ll immediately see the shine once it’s washed out.
Go (coco)nuts for this trusty lip scrub
Next, we treated our pout to the Cocolicious Luscious Lip Scrub – it’s a favourite of actress Lily Collins (yes, of Emily In Paris fame). Oh, how we were tempted to eat this. You can’t blame us when something smells like a tropical paradise – yup, we got coconut sorbet. Jojoba oil, avocado oil and coconut are key players in this fab lip scrub. Our lips were simply crying for moisture, what with all the mask-wearing. And this scrub is the clean up crew for nasties. A little goes a long way so a pea-sized dollop will do. We’ve been using it every other night since, waking up to a smooth and shiny pout. Chapped lips, who?
Ready for some DIY face action?
True story: wearing face masks every day (not the beauty ones) has taken a toll on our poor skin. Clogged pores, dull skin, pollution and environmental stresses, you name it, we’ve got it. In comes this skincare hero. The Beauty Warrior Face Mask in Australian Pink Clay comes in powder form. All you need to do is add a splash of water at a time (we made the mistake of adding too much the first time). Don’t have an extra container around? Simply use the lid, no fuss! Our skin usually feels tighter after applying clay masks. Not with this. As instructed, we cleaned the mask off with a towel before it dried up. We loved feeling squeaky clean and moisturised all over.
Dab some colour (and life) onto those lips
If you’re going for the no makeup, makeup look, this lip tint will be your ride or die. Available in four colours (including a colourless tint), the Hyaluronic Lip Dews are great for all skin tones. Coconut oil and cocoa butter keep the lips moisturised, vitamin E repairs dry skin, and let’s not forget the star, hyaluronic acid, for some hydration action. Glide on the creamy, luscious product for a dewy finish and sexy gleam. Safe to say this is a new staple in our makeup pouch.
One sweet collaboration
If you’ve got a soft spot for florals, you’ll love the limited edition Spring’s Promise bundle. A joint venture with DC Edit, the gift set offers a Pocket Full of Posies Hydrating Lip Dew Duo, Perk Me Up Buttercup! Renewing Lip Mask and an Early Bloom Renewing Facial Gel Mask. Highlights include the antioxidant-rich chrysanthemum extract, honeysuckle extract packed with anti-inflammatory goodies to repair your skin, and hyaluronic acid for a dose of hydration. Great for sensitive skin!
Tip: this is how you score brownie points with your loved ones. Simply gift them one of these lovely care packages and it’ll be the highlight of their day.
