People always ask me what the best part of my job is, and honestly, it really has to be discovering brands I’ve never come across before. There’s just something about being introduced to a brand with a product range that gets you; it’s like uncovering a pot of gold. So, which brand made its debut to my bathroom shelf last week and has me hooked? CEMOY.
The Packaging - EXTRA AF
Ok, let’s start with the packaging. So, I get this parcel from the brand, and I open it expecting the same-old, plain rectangular box with your standard pump-bottle product inside, and boy was a wrong. Instead, I look down to see colours, prints, cylinders, metal clasps, reflective sleeves…. honestly, I could go on for days but you get it. Think luxury, think designer, think EXPENSIVE (at a very reasonable price point). Just fancy AF to say the very least.
You know what, I’ll leave an unboxing for your reference below. Now, do you understand why I just can’t get over the damn packaging?!
The Lumen Series Facial Cleanser (and personal fav)
So, I just so happened to run out of my cleanser as I received the CEMOY goodies; perfect timing! My expectations are high, how can they not be after receiving such extraordinary packaged goods (get over the packaging already).
I can definitely see why this is one of CEMOY’s best sellers. The ultra-rich cream-based formula has a super lux texture. It works to illuminate your complexion, so it’s perfect for keeping that skin of yours bright and radiant, especially if you do experience a little dullness.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll notice that your skin gets a little flakey during the cooler months. And here’s another reason why you’ll love this cleanser; it’s SUPER hydrating! I’ve used so many cleansers to try combat my winter flakes (is that even a thing?) and I’ve never come across anything quite like this formula. The consistency starts off super thick, so I use water to work it into my skin and turn it into a foam. After I wash it off, my face is as soft as a baby’s bum. It leaves my skin feeling nourished, hydrated and clean with no flakes to be seen.
Oh, and let’s not forget about the anti-ageing benefits!
The Re-Vital Expert Defence Primer (I use this one as a moisturiser)
I’ve had this bad boy sitting in my beauty-drobe for a week now. I won’t lie, I was so caught up with the cleanser that I kinda forgot about it. So, I think this is day 2 of me using the primer, and to say I’m obsessed is an understatement. Why didn’t I pick it up sooner?!
Heres why I love it; the formula is thick enough to keep you hydrated but light enough for your skin to soak up. It’s perfect for all skin types, and I love it especially because it keeps me hydrated without giving me a greasy finish. I’ve just been popping this CEMOY product on after my serum for now, I’m yet to use it with makeup. With the added protection of SP50, it makes a great daily moisturiser. The packaging though....
As it is a primer, this product is perfect to use under makeup. It’s super smoothing so I can see how it would make a great base for your foundation to sit on top. I can’t wait to try it for this over the weekend.
And there we have it, my thoughts on my new fav skincare routine players and brand CEMOY. OTT packaging and luxurious formulas that don’t break the bank. Discover the full range today at Oz Hair & Beauty.
