We could all do with a little dose of self care right now and Thalia Skin have the ultimate 2-step natural skincare ritual to pamper your skin. Behind this Australian made skincare, is the inspiring story of a Melbourne mum who followed her dreams to create something special.
I met Bec, founder of Thalia Skin on a family trip to the South Pacific in 2015. It was not long after a cyclone had devastated the region. Though our resort was completely untouched, we were the only two families on the island. We spent a week in paradise together. A holiday so perfect, we joined each other the following year for a repeat performance.
From the beginning, Bec’s passion for natural skincare was evident. It’s beautiful to see that her hard work and dedication have transformed her dream into a reality. Bec’s journey began with a desire to heal her own troubled skin which had suffered from eczema, acne and psoriasis. Her mission – “to create active, powerful, truly natural skincare, free from synthetic ingredients and fillers and loaded with nutrients our skin needs to thrive.”
Bec has developed a natural skincare ritual consisting of two organic products of unrivalled quality. The Cleansing Truth ($85 for 100ml) and The Awakening Serum ($120 for 30ml). The Ritual Combo is available for $195.
The scent of these wildcrafted products is intoxicating. Everything about them from the packaging to the ingredients themselves is of the highest quality. The cleanser and serum have become a luxurious daily ritual for me. They allow me to take a moment for myself as my skin absorbs their goodness and I breathe in the magic of the plant essences.
Beauty is what you feel about yourself, not what you see in the mirror. It is an attitude, an air of grace, a gentle smile and a loving thought.
THE CLEANSING TRUTH
The Cleansing Truth is a cleansing oil that will dissolve oil, make-up, dirt and debris. It does this while maintaining the precious lipid barrier essential to protect our skin. I have long been a fan of cleansing oils and this one is divine. The Cleansing Truth leaves your skin clean and petal soft and your mind invigorated and refreshed.
THE AWAKENING SERUM
The Awakening Serum is nourishing and soothing as you massage it into your skin. It infuses your skin with moisture, protective antioxidants, vitamins, essential oils and plumping fatty acids. It also provides natural forms of retinol support the signs of ageing. The serum leaves no oily residue and sits beautifully under makeup leaving my skin nourished and hydrated all day long.
When I started using this product, I had a small dry patch on my cheek which had been there for probably 5 years. After regularly using these products for a couple of weeks, this dry patch disappeared altogether. And I’m continuing to reap the benefits. I’m all for ethical products and this simple routine has made a clear difference to the hydration of my skin.
I understand that so many of us are struggling right now. If you can afford to support a small Australian made business in these dark times, you won’t be disappointed with these beautiful products that are unrivalled in quality. You’ll have all you need to create your very own luxurious day spa at home!
