Today I have another brand spotlight post for an award winning natural skincare brand I’ve never come across before. MV Organic Skincare are an Australian skincare brand founded by Sharon McGlinchey, which are available to buy from Cult Beauty here in the UK. Sharon’s aim is empower women to make better-informed decisions about what they put on their skin with her organic, natural skincare with an open and honest approach. The MV Organic Skincare uses the world’s most powerful, precious and pure ingredients which work holistically to transform skin and nourish our senses. I have had the pleasure of trying a selection of MV Organic Skincare miniatures as an introduction to the brand, keep on reading to see my thoughts…
“With a cult worldwide following of editors, influencers and celebrities, including Emma Watson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Poppy & Cara Delevingne and Brooke Shields – Sharon McGlinchey’s passion, knowledge and attention to detail have established her facials and products as the global benchmark for organic skincare. A passionate believer in the healing benefits of aromatherapy and essential oils, Sharon has established a reputation as a truly extraordinary holistic facial therapist whose products work on every skin type, including highly sensitive and intolerant skins. She is based in Sydney, Australia, and treats clients all over the world, including yearly visits to London, Paris and New York.”
MV Organic Skincare Rose Soothing & Protective Moisturiser 15ml £27
“Infused with exquisite Bulgarian Rose oil, this ‘cult’ moisturiser is loved by celebrities and make-up artists across the globe. Its super-hydrating and soothing formula makes it ideal for extra-sensitive skins including eczema and rosacea. Highly versatile, this cream is easily customized for all skin types. Simply blend with MV’s Rose Hydrating Mist to create a light lotion for oily and combination skin or, to target specific concerns, blend with a few drops of your favourite MV Skin Booster.”
This is the richest moisturiser I’ve ever tried, and I’ve tried a lot of rich and intense moisturisers. I expected the consistency to be on the lightweight, thinner side due to it being “soothing” but it almost feels as if it’s a balm on the skin. If anything, I find it to be a little too rich for my skin and my skin’s super dehydrated and dry so I have to spritz a facial mist over my skin prior to applying this moisturiser to make it a little more viscous. It has a strong rose scent and contains some lovely oils; camelia oil, jojoba seed oil, calendula seed oil and honeysuckle extract too, and I like that it even works for those with rosacea and eczema.
MV Organic Skincare Gentle Cream Cleanser £39 (70ml full size)
“Gaining ‘cult’ status around the world, this luxe cleanser removes all traces of make-up and grime without stripping and works miracles on congested skin. Silky-smooth and deliciously scented, this unique moisturising cleanser is perfect for all skins including even the most sensitive and is the essential first step in the ‘MV 3 Minute Skin Ritual’“
To thoroughly cleanse and gently exfoliate, you simply smooth the cleanser over the face and neck, and then use wet fingertips work over the skin in circular movements, and rinse with a hot damp wash cloth. MV Organic Skincare recommend using this cleanser onto dry skin, because if it’s applied to wet skin, the cleanser will then slip over the surface, rather than grabbing makeup and grime. The consistency is very rich just like the moisturiser meaning you only need a very little but it feels like a butter as it melts on contact with the skin, and it’s a delight to use.
MV Organic Skincare Pure Jojoba 8ml £31 (35ml full size)
“This is Emma Watson’s red carpet essential. An eye-care all-rounder, MV’s Pure Jojoba removes eye make-up and mascara and strengthens lashes whilst conditioning and hydrating the skin in this delicate area. Fantastically versatile, jojoba can be used under any moisturiser to calm reactive skins including eczema and rosacea. Similar to the skins own sebum, this fast absorbing salve softens and protects without clogging.“
I can’t recall ever using a pure jojoba oil but it’s a powerhouse oil with many benefits for the hair and skin. MV Organic Skincare recommend multiple uses for their jojoba so it’s something to own within your skincare arsenal, for removing makeup, strengthening lashes whilst conditioning and hydrating the skin. I’ve really enjoyed using it on my dry patches at night as the oily consistency doesn’t lend itself well under makeup but as an overnight skin treatment, it works nicely but I’ve also been using it on my lashes and brows at night to try and condition them. It does take a while to fully absorb but once it has, my skin feels so silky. I will be looking for more jojoba based skincare products going forward, as I’m a really big fan of this Pure Jojoba – it’s my star product from the collection.
MV Organic Skincare Instant Revival Booster 8ml £65 (35ml full size)
“Packed with energizing essential oils and powerful antioxidants, this is the ultimate booster to stimulate regeneration and create instant luminosity. Whether your concern is sun-damage, dullness or tired looking skin, this fast acting oil will deliver results overnight.“
This Booster is suitable for normal, devitalised or sun damaged skin and it’s an award winner for the brand. Described as being a wow factor product that can be used overnight for brightening, and regenerating results. It is their most active booster in their range so MV Organic Skincare don’t recommend using it if you have sensitive skin so it’s not something I’ve been able to try as my skin’s super sensitive and reactive but it sounds amazing for those more normal skin.
MV Organic Skincare Energising Mineral Mask 30g £36 (100g full size) & MV Organic Skincare Facial Mask Brush £12
“This mask is an essential boost to kick start circulation, refine skin texture and return a healthy glow to devitalised and sun-damaged complexions. A wonderful multi-tasker, this rejuvenating treatment is also a must if your skin has been neglected or is looking a little dull. Instantly revives dull or tired skin and noticeably improves skin texture.
Using the MV Mask Brush, mix 2 teaspoons to a smooth creamy consistency with spring or filter water. To customize this mask, you may now add 3 drops of your favourite MV Skin Booster. Apply to face and neck with the MV Mask Brush and relax for 7–10 mins. While mask is still slightly damp remove with warm water and a muslin cloth or face washer.
Never let the mask dry completely. Most people do this at least once, but this final drying stage of the mask draws moisture from the surface of the skin, leaving the skin blotchy and feeling very tight and dehydrated.
For best results use once or twice weekly after cleansing and always remove before completely dry. The MV Mask Blending Bowl and Mask Brush are essential mask accessories, allowing for no-fuss blending and clean and easy application.“
The MV Organic Skincare Energising Mineral Mask comes in a kit with the brush and a bowl, but you can purchase the brush individually should you want to. The mask is powdered and you have to mix it with water prior to using it, and it’s another award winning product. My skin is currently getting over an exacerbation of my contact dermatitis so I’m going to keep this ready for when my skin’s not super inflamed and covered in raised bumps but the reviews sound amazing.
I’d love to know if you’ve tried MV Organic Skincare before?
