Working as a beauty writer, I am constantly sent products to review which I’m often reluctant to try because of the chemical processes and ingredients used in their creation. I was recently introduced to Martina Organics and instantly fell in love with this artesian skincare range, created from certified organic ingredients. Newly introduced to the New Zealand skincare market, Martina Organics is created by portuguese born, Marta Camara, who relocated to Wellington with her family at the age of two. Marta’s mother taught her the importance of a balanced and holistic approach to beautiful skin and it was with this, along with her training as a beauty therapist that Martina Organics was born.
I was fortunate enough to try the range, which currently consists of a moisturiser, cleanser and toner. I found all the products absolutely beautiful to use, evoking all the senses- they look, feel and smell delicious. You can buy it in Dunedin here.
Oil Moisturiser-A sumptuous blend created to soften protect and renew, this oil just melts into the skin. It’s not quite as good as getting a facial when you do it yourself but every night I give myself to a mini face massage when applying this moisturiser before bed. This moisturiser contains evening primrose, argan and hemp oil which heal irrataions and target signs of aging. Baobab improves elasticity, jasmine and manuka repair and protect, marula reduces redness and scarring, while camellia and macadamia provide conditioning.
Toner-This toner smells so good, it could be used as a perfume too! A soothing blend of rosewater, anti-bacterial manuka, oil and sebum removing, blemish reducing, pore tightening witch hazel and redness reducing jasmine this toner is fresh and revitalising. Use spritz’s throughout the day to to freshen and hydrate!
Oil Cleanser-Designed to heal and hydrate, this oil cleanser removes impurities, make-up and excess sebum-without stripping away the skin’s natural moisture. Argan, manuka and hemp oils fight acne, inflammation and treat blemishes. Jojoba unblocks pores, marula and jasmine reduce redness and scarring, almond and apricot soften, while camellia hydrates and replenishes.
