Beauty news: the whimsical return of New Zealand's Moreish Skincare

A good few years ago now I first talked about Moreish Skincare, at the time a new, locally created skincare range to the market that contained argan oil as its core ingredient. Argan was the absolute buzz ingredient back in 2011, and has shown no sign of disappearing in a hurry due to its amazing attributes.
Argan oil is now internationally renowned for its remarkable nourishing, regenerative and anti-ageing properties. Rich in Vitamin E, Omega-9 and antioxidants, the rare oil has been used for centuries by the Berber tribeswomen who harvest it to nourish their skin, hair and nails in the dry desert heat. It’s still rather hot right now, and more and more product ranges are popping up that harnesses its unique attributes.
What sets Moreish Skincare apart is that it also contains New Zealand oils and plant extracts - known for their amazing skin enhancing benefits - including Pohutukawa extracts, grown wild and hand-harvested in the East Cape. Other key ingredients include a unique blend of antioxidants naturally extracted from kiwifruit skins and grape seeds, which help to brighten the skin, reduce redness and improve elasticity.
Moreish Skincare also employs a ‘natural products’ approved preservative system - using no chemicals such as parabens or phenoxyethanol – and the range contains no petrochemicals, synthetic colours or synthetic fragrances, has recyclable packaging and is not tested on animals.
The range is intensely rich in vitamins and essential nutrients to hydrate, protect and restore your face and body without the use of harsh chemicals, and now it has made a comeback to the market with some absolutely beautiful new packaging. Just look at the pic above – how much do you want to see that kind of gorgeousness in your bathroom cabinet? Just heavenly, really.
Also pretty damn well priced and available exclusively through selected Countdown stores, the Moreish range includes:
Liquid Gold Pure Argan Oil, 30ml RRP $30
Liberation Foaming Cleanser, 200ml RRP $20
Anew Exfoliator 75ml RRP $20
Daily Redemption Day Cream 50ml RRP $25
Dream Night Cream 50ml RRP $25
Reawaken Eye Cream 15ml RRP $25
Resurgence Hand Cream 75ml RRP $20
At the moment I am in love with the Liberation Foaming Cleanser, which gently purifies and cleanses with a heady ingredient mix that includes Argan, Manuka Honey and Green Tea, and the Resurgence Hand Cream, a non-greasy, quickly absorbed little number that contains Argan, Shea Butter and Papaya.
