Super Hydrating Face Cream with Organic Rosehip Oil 60mls
I started making and using my Face Cream just for myself because I wanted something natural and gorgeous to use on my skin, which definitely needed much more hydration after I moved to New Zealand in 2005. Back in those days natural skin care was a rare thing.
And at 40-years-old I needed more hydration than when I was younger and that is just basic physiology — our skin becomes drier and more dehydrated as we get a wee bit older. Keeping it hydrated and protected is key to having an intact skin barrier which in turn leads to healthy, glowing skin⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I made this Face Cream and used it for 12 years before I ever thought of selling it but to this day, each jar is still made and poured by hand. I have used it twice a day for the past 17 years (no swapping products for me) and, if I say so myself, I have pretty good skin now.
I use the same six gorgeous antioxidant-rich oils that I used when I was making just for myself and as the NZ Herald beauty editor said it smells great, nourishes the skin and lifts the senses and is “a well-formulated moisturiser that is simple but hardly basic."
It is now our top selling and most reviewed ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ product so if you need a little more hydration, protection, nourishment and love then this is the product for you. Do not just take my word for it-check out what everyone else says in the reviews.
Best suited to
Dry, dehydrated, sensitive and maturing skin. Perfect for anyone needing a daily dose of hydration and TLC.
How to use it
Use in the morning under your SPF and make-up. We do not have SPF in our Face Cream because I recommend you use a dedicated sunblock: a product that is made to protect you from the sun and only that. You will not be able to apply enough of a SPF make-up or SPF face cream to get the coverage that’s required to protect you from the sun. And it's hard to apply these products evenly enough for proper protection. The reason sunblock needs to be reapplied every two hours is because it becomes clumped or uneven (like your make-up does) and that allows the UV rays to get through.
Use our Face Cream at night as the last step in your routine: apply to a clean face and after serums and oils (if you use those).
Why it works
Our face cream works this because it has:
- a water base which delivers hydration to the outer layer;
- a humectant which draws water up from our lower tissues to deliver more hydration to that outer skin
- oils to soften, nourish and protect your skin and aid hydration by forming an occlusive layer that locks in water.
The big secret to having smooth and plump and healthy skin (that looks younger) is hydration. Our Face Cream delivers this where you need it: in the outer layers (as you can never drink your way to this). Water-attracting humectants draw up hydration from your lower tissues and the gorgeous oils lock it all in.
Nourishment and protection
Our super-hydrating Face Cream has some of the best antioxidant-rich organic, cold-pressed oils you can find, including Rosehip, Marula, Evening Primrose and Jojoba to protect your skin against the unavoidable free radicals that cause the damage to your skin. Think daily environmental damage (UV rays, pollution, air-borne toxins). If you want to take care of your skin and have it healthy and gorgeous at any age you need to look after it, protect it and do it every day. One of the best ways to do that is to use the power of antioxidants, both in your diet and by applying directly to your skin.
If you are going to use a face cream every day, actually twice a day, you may as well do it with one that smells divine, feels luscious and gives you a few moments of comfort in your busy day.
The goodness in our Face Cream
- Rosehip Oil* is a fabulous antioxidant. It moisturises and firms up the appearance of fine wrinkles, leading to a smoother face that glows.
- Marula Oil* for essential antioxidants, helps protect your skin from daily environmental damage (UV rays, pollution, air-borne toxins), helping with suppleness and elasticity
- Evening Primrose Oil* is magical for sensitive skin, preventing breakouts, smoothing wrinkles and improving the overall health of your skin
- Jojoba Oil* is deeply hydrating. It adds another layer of antioxidants that promote collagen synthesis, taking you one step closer to glowing skin.

Over the years I’ve tried many face creams but this one is my absolute favourite as it is super hydrating and makes my skin feel lush and soft. Highly recommend
Perfect moisturiser with everything I was looking for; locally owned and operated, eco friendly, natural ingredients, smooth and light, and it works without leaving my skin oily! Thank you!
Light, beautiful scent and easy to apply. Great everyday moisturiser.
I noticed my neck and chest skin looking a bit Sun damaged after this long summer, but after only 2 weeks of this lovely facial cream, the skin is looking hydrated and pumped.
I have extra sensitive skin with irreversible damage from other products, and from day 1 of using the wonderful face cream, never had any reaction at all. Absolutely wonderful products. Thankyou Deirdre.
Excellent product! Don’t want to use anything else - have been using for at least three years
I’ve had trouble finding the right face cream for my very dry skin, too heavy and I break out, too light and they don’t do enough to help. I find this face cream deeply nourishing and a perfect companion to the serum. The moisturising effect lasts all day without leaving a greasy feeling or a tight film like other creams I’ve tried. I put on a light amount in the morning as a nice moisture-rich primer for my powder foundation and a healthy amount after cleanse and serum at night to work it’s magic while I sleep. Absolute game changer!
This is my 3rd purchase of the face cream, which speaks for itself, very happy with product; fragrance, texture, ability to wear under make up. Friends are saying “your skin looks great! What are you doing?” Very economical too, thank you
I have used the beautiful face cream and the blam, blam balm for awhile now and have also added to that the Serum. These products are beautiful, amazing, healing and a product I trust and fully endorse. So pleased I found Deidre and very happy that her products are just like her, honest, and fully backed by her 100% and they work 💖
thank you Lyndle and so happy you found me too
I love this moisturiser. I have been using it for a while now and I it does a great job.
