In a nutshell, pure mineral collagen + super-active botanical oils = Face Matters skincare.
There’s a lot of love around already for this newcomer to the British skincare market – actress Sarah Parish is a fan of the Anti-Ageing Elixir, and the brand was created by beautician Sally Curson, a woman who knows a thing or two about not just beauty and anti-ageing, but also creating something from nothing.
Sally found herself on the streets with two young children as a result of domestic violence and one of the positives that has come out of her story is that she now donates a percentage of Face Matters’ sales to the charity Refuge.
Face Matters is a 3-product capsule collection – there’s an innovative Collagen Spritz, a Cleansing Balm and the Elixir – and interestingly, one of Sally’s biggest supporters is Peter Hunter, former UK distributor of Burt’s Bees.
This range caught our eye during the judging of the Beauty Shortlist Awards; the products are concentrated and formulated to provide a daily dose of potent anti-ageing defence for skin and they felt lovely to use (my personal favourite was the Cleansing Balm). We would like to see the label ingredients on the website, and needless to say it’ll be a big advantage when Face Matters gets into retail, which is the plan; meanwhile it’s getting some good press reviews and personal endorsements.
If you’re a fan of luxurious concentrated facial oils and collagen-based products, this is one to watch…
