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
need to stock up
Creamy, soap-free cleanser to remove dirt, pollution and makeup gently and effectively without drying skin out.
My GEL-TO-MILK cleanser had it's last pump just this month so I really need to replace it. I absolutely loved the texture, makeup removal abilities and sensitive hydration that this had to offer. No tight skin feelings after any wash, which is something I can't stand.
It's perfect for someone like me who has sensitive skin as it doesn't cause any irritation and is safe to use with Oratane. It also spreads easily, making a small amount go further and therefore, making it a cost effective purchase. Nothing like affordable luxury, in my books!!
NORMAL | DRY | SENSITIVE
Safflower, Marula, Vitamin E
3-Hyaluron + C serum
Triple blend of hyaluronic acid + vitamin C to boost moisture and brighten skin tone.
Wow-Wow Wonder serum, a SKOON hero product, offers oceans of hydration and contains 3 sizes of Hyaluronic acid. This multi-tasker is also brilliant at brightening (it's packed with Vitamin C), evening out skin tone and gently exfoliating.
At the moment I am struggling with a bit of pigmentation and I have been scouring the internet for every type of solution out there, without realising that I had the answer right here in my latest SKOON delivery.
I always take so long to open boxes as I plan to create content and don't always get there in my allocated time.
I am starting this serum TONIGHT and I am super excited for a brighter, hydrated skin. This product receives all the WOWs so I am very keen to add to that chorus.
Skin types - ALL SKIN TYPES
Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C 3%, Phytic acid
SPOTLESS SPOT STICK
ON MY WISHLIST
There is nothing worse than a little friend showing up uninvited. SKOON promises to take care of any unwanted guests with their Spotless Spot stick.
Rid your skin of bumps, blemishes and any pimply areas with this clear skin essential.
I feel like this is a must have for ANY handbag or vanity especially in the time of COVID where mask break outs are a real thing!!
Bye bye zits. You're so last year.
On-the-spot treatment blend of calming and clearing botanicals for breakouts.
AM/PM: Dab roller ball directly on bumps and blemishes.
Safflower, Schisandra, Niaouli
MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE
Overnight moisture boost with wakame and hyaluronic acid to entrap moisture on the surface of the skin. Soothe and hydrate while you sleep.
I could not have described it better myself!! Ruby Marine is the most glorious hydration product that won't make you break out but rather plump up your skin and sooth and dry red spots.
I ended up with a jar of this by default. It was left over stock from the Epiphany boutique and I gave one to my sister and kept one for myself.
I personally don't use it every single night but I use it almost weekly and it's surprising how long this little jar of goodness has lasted!!
I have just restocked with the larger option so I am probably good for the next year.
During summer (and when on vacation) that extra time in the sun is really not great for our faces. I try to always wear a hat and SPF, but when I do get a little toasty - this is my LIFESAVER.
