SKOON.

ABOUT

Stella Ciollo, founder of this truly unique skincare range, believes that good, effective skincare needn’t contain toxic ingredients and parabens procured at a great expense to the environment, let alone at the expense of women’s skin and health.

Skoon do not condone any formulations that might be carcinogenic or harmful to your health. They source locally and encourage local production of ingredients wherever possible. They also reject the concept of testing products on animals on the absolute strongest terms.

The SKOON. brand began because of an article Stella found in a newspaper years ago, which stated that a woman will host, on average, 515 ingredients on her body, at any given time – because of the way modern cosmetics are formulated. It occurred to me that there are very few "good" alternatives – and if she wanted to make a difference, she’d have to roll up her sleeves and make something happen. She just had to get this project off the ground.

Stella started her own professional laboratory and worked with a chemist full time to produce the best-in-class natural formulations, using highly potent, effective actives and ingredients. Stella researched natural ingredients, travelling far and wide to find superb quality actives and suppliers - whilst her chemist formulated ways to maximise the natural properties of each ingredient procured.

WHY I LOVE THEM

As someone who has struggled with acne and sensitive skin for most of my life I am incredibly weary when it comes to advocating a skin care range.

There are so many natural skin care ranges on the market and of course some of them are beautiful and effective, however my poor face doesn't have the luxury of being able to test products without consequences.

I have been down another natural skincare road with a local brand and it followed with a year of struggle after I finally thought my acne was under control.

The difference with Skoon is that their formulas are scientifically formulated with the finest ingredients. They make it their mission to stay up to date with the most luxurious and beneficial formulations in natural skin care. Natural actives that are supported by clinical studies mean that Skoon products are not only effective but also scientifically proven.

Skoon focuses on being honest and pure. Kind, clean, ethical procurement and production that is strictly against testing on animals. This undercurrent that runs through the soul of their business along with a heart for local had me at hello. Their products are pure, highly effective luxury.

FAVOURITE FINDS FROM THEIR LATEST COLLECTION

the one moisturiser

R655

EVERY NIGHT
50ml

Super moisturiser

Fast absorbing moisturiser to replenish moisture, support skin barrier and restore suppleness.

"The One gives your skin a hug of hydration and paints it with a supple brush."

I have been using THE ONE as a night cream since April with PHYTO LIGHT in the mornings and I absolutely love it. It absorbs easily but leaves my skin feeling hydrated and glowy.

If I am feeling particularly dry I top up with the Ruby Marine Hydration Mask for extra moisture, but have found that since I changed over from another skincare range to SKOON. I haven't been using the Ruby Marine as much as I did before.

(Ruby Marine has been part of my skin routine for over a year).

Overall the health, suppleness and softness of my skin has improved so much. Despite being on Oratane (Roaccutane), I never feel super dry or uncomfortable.

I can only attribute it to these super heroes, THE ONE being one of them!

SKOON LOVES Lupin. ⁠
And not just because it’s one of the hero ingredients in their Rosehip C+ Antioxidant Concentrate. ⁠

The Lupin protein helps to prevent the breakdown of elastin and collagen, keeping your skin firmer. It also works to renew the skin’s outer layer, reducing the depth of wrinkles, and a long list of other benefits, including scar maintenance. ⁠

All you have to do is massage two drops of Rosehip C+ Antioxidant Concentrate into your skin with your usual moisturiser. We have been promised that our skin will thank us for it. ⁠

I ordered this along with the wow wow wow serum for scar maintenance and dryness caused by Oratane. 

I have heard amazing things about Rosehip serum but have yet to experience it for myself.

So before I talk it up I am going to give it a try and get back to you next month.

Skin Types:

SUPER DRY

Directions:

AM/PM: Add 1-2 drops to enrich your moisturiser. 

Alternatively, smooth directly onto clean skin.

Tips

Massage twice daily into newly healed tissue for aesthetic scar maintenance .

 

Hero Ingredients:

  • Rosehip

  • Lupin

  • Sea buckthorn

Finaaaallly this HERO will be joining my skin care regime and I am elated. I haven't even opened my Skoon delivery yet but I am all kinds of excited.

Look forward to August where you will hear all the news on this serum and it's effect on my skin this month.

ON MY WISHLIST/GIFT FOR A FRIEND
frangipani flowers, 30ml

Solid body oil

Shea with a delicate floral note warmly based in vanilla.

I have absolutely loved using the SKOON. skincare range and I can't imagine why their body oil wouldn't be as wonderful.

Just as we should take care of our face, our body is just as precious and needs care and protection from the changing of the seasons too.

This Frangipani body oil looks like a delight! I read that one woman had even used it as a solid perfume! I love a botanical scent and a moisturiser that is absorbed easily. This definitely needs to be given a try.

 

Skin types

Directions

Scoop a generous amount of solid body oil into your hand and massage all over until the oil is absorbed and a delicate floral aroma is released.
