Our E-Commerce Manager, Emmeline Peterson, reviews SKIN by Ecostore’s 'This Is Me' travel pack.

Ecostore is a New Zealand institution, having made affordable and accessible eco-friendly cleaning products for 25 years now. In fact, chances are you've had their washing up liquid or laundry powder in your house at some point. In addition to their signature household products, a few years ago they dipped their toes into the huge world of eco-skincare, with their range SKIN by Ecostore.  

SKIN is a fuss-free, skincare basics range featuring moisturisers, cleansers, hand and lip care, and facial oil; all dermatologically-tested and using natural ingredients. I tried out their 'This Is Me' travel pack on a trip over New Year’s because, really, what better time to start a new skincare routine? The pack includes travel size versions of their Gentle Cleanser, Hydrating Moisturiser, Replenishing Night Cream, and Multi-Nutrient Facial Oil – your basics when switching over to a new skincare brand or paring down your routine for a few days away.

Over the four days I was away, I used the Gentle Cleanser both morning and night, the Hydrating Moisturiser in the morning after cleansing, and the Multi-Nutrient Facial Oil and Replenishing Night Cream (in that order) at night. While they smelled a little medical (which probably means they are unscented and good for sensitive skin), the cleanser was gentle and left my skin feeling soft, while the Hydrating Moisturiser the same.

I was most excited about using the Facial Oil, though, which – after a 12-hour car trip with air conditioning blasting and carefully rationed water to avoid too many stops – my skin totally soaked up. The whole range is packed with grapeseed extract and blackcurrant oil, so it's super hydrating. This served me pretty well when my face resembled a rock crag on New Year’s Day.
