You know how it’s sometimes tough to make a good thing better? Well, British-based beauty company, Molton Brown, figured out how to extend their nourishing formulas from scent and body into a full-fledged, anti-aging skincare line. Huzzah! We were lucky enough to get a close up look at the luxe line of cleansers, toners, creams, and overall arsenal of products at a special party held in the Molton Brown Soho store last week.
‘Visibly Effective. Honestly Explained.’ is the mantra Molton Brown is using to describe the new anti-aging skincare line, which includes bodycare products as well. Chock full of rich ingredients collected from around the world, the mere sound of some of these products is enough to know they’re not messing around. The experts behind Molton Brown combed the globe for some of the most organic and naturally effective formulas to translate back into their line. And guess what, it works!
For example, I saw the effects of the Kalahari Melon Cleansing Fluid, literally first hand. I rubbed the dewy, gel-like liquid on my hand and it immediately sunk into my skin like a moisturizer. As a cleanser, it banishes the invisible layer of dirt that sits on everyone’s face throughout the day (especially in New York!) and reveals the glowing skin underneath. I learned the Kalahari melon seed oil is full of fatty acids to make the skin more soft and supple, while Appleseed oil is added for moisture and Safflower oil packs a punch of antioxidant Vitamin E. Even having it on my hand, I was hooked!
The other product I was most curious about, as it’s not a part of my everyday beauty routine but it needs to be, is a lip booster. I have sensitive skin all over my face, especially on my lips and they easily get dry and chapped from the crazy weather patterns lately. One of the Molton Brown experts at the party steered me right over to the Pep-rich Lip Booster and swore up and down it was the best thing ever. Packed with active ingredients by way of Brazil, the Pep-rich Lip Booster both diminishes fine lines and wrinkles in the lips and prevents new ones from popping up. I tried a tony bit on the outer edges of my lips where I get the most dryness, and it felt like a rush of cool relief. After asking for the make up of this magic, I was told that African mango is in it to soften and protect the delicate skin on the lips. Papaya extract exfoliates those pesky flakes and dry spots, and Palmitoyl-oligopeptide is just a fancy word for collagen-boosting. In other words, it’s a must-have for all year round.
As fun and informative as the Molton Brown party was, I could really only explore the tip of the iceberg on this seriously promising skincare line. Other products I’m already dying to try are the Karanja Tree Sunshield with SPF 30 (with ingredients brought over from India), Vita B3 Eye Concentrate (compliments of Prague), and the Peruvian Mica Anti-Aging Hydra-Creme (as stated, from Peru). Luckily, these amazing potions are already available at MoltonBrown.com. There’s plenty of options to peruse (see the picture of the full collection above), and each product comes with helpful tips from Celebrity Skincare Expert Nathalie Eleni. But if you want our word for it, you heard it here first: we’re already hooked.
