Beauty review: The Edit Radiant Cleanse Polishing Cleanser

For those unfamiliar with the brand, The Edit is a locally crafted, capsule collection of skincare essentials for perfectly prepped, glowing skin.
The brand’s founder is Michelle Devereux, a globally recognised makeup artist of 25 years who has worked in cities like Milan, Zurich, Munich and Sydney on some of the world’s most highly respected fashion and lifestyle publications. Her career has seen her work appear in titles such as Vogue Australia, Vogue Singapore, Harper's Bazaar, and Australian Elle, and on the faces or celebrity clients such as Naomi Watts, Cindy Crawford and Cate Blanchett.
Decades later, Devereux moved back home, opening a makeup school in Hamilton and finally creating her own line of skincare essentials. During her time overseas, she worked on thousands of famous faces in her chair, and found that the same skin issues were consistent. She decided it was finally time to create a range of eco-luxe skincare essentials that were as hard working as they were luxurious to use, drawing on her wealth of experience and desire to give everyone the ultimate glow-up and prep step that works.
The end result is an essential collection of products created using the best active, natural ingredients combined with pure aromatics – and yes, the smell as great as they feel. Carefully formulated to facilitate healthy, glowing skin, they are also proudly made in New Zealand, which always gets a big tick from me.
The latest product from the collection that I’ve been having a play with is the brand’s top selling Radiant Cleanse. Perfect for skin emerging after winter and needing a pick me up on all fronts, it’s a multitasking polishing formula that is gentle enough for everyday use. Its key ingredients are natural bamboo powder for a soft yet thoroughly effective exfoliation and cleanse, with Macadamia oil (super high in Omega 9) and Vitamin E to nourish.
Skin can look a little dull, flaky or uneven after a few months very much indoors, and the stresses of lockdowns haven’t help either. I for one am hanging out for a professional facial treatment and damn good exfoliation, but in the interim this product has been a dream. Buffing or clearing dead skin cells aids in unclogging pores and refreshing a dulled complexion, as a build-up of dead cells on the surface of our skin can lead to dry patches, congestion, uneven appearance and breakouts. It’s also essential if you want your makeup to glide on with ease, and to control random breakouts under a mask. This 2-in-1 cleanser gently removes make up and cleanses skin as part of your night routine, and I love that it adds a mood boosting moment at the end of the day with hints of vanilla, iris, rose, wild mint and clove leaves.
A beautiful addition to your Spring skincare routine, The Edit Radiant Cleanse Polishing Cleanser (100ml RRP $86.00) is available now and comes highly recommended.
