Words by Matt Huxley
If you didn’t know already, there’s a brand new player in the Aussie skincare game, and damn are they making a splash. I’m obvs referring to the cool cats at ApoteKah. This Melbourne company started by two entrepreneurial pharmacists has already captivated my heart and provide all that my minimalist aesthetically inclined heart desires.
Their products contain no nasties and they get the job done. Without breaking the bank. I had the opportunity to test out a few of their products (you can check out the full range here). I also have a discount code for you amazing readers, so use MATTH10 on checkout to get 10% off their entire range.
Without further ado, here are my thoughts on ApoteKah:
Facial Treatment Oil:
Bomb.com.au. This is amazing. Being a combo of several different oils, this power pack gives your skin all the hydration and moisture it needs. If you get just one thing, make it this bad boy. You won’t regret it.
Active Hydrating Toner:
I love me a good toner, and this one is no exception. It’s super soothing with a nice cucumber-y scent. Perfect if you have sensitive skin.
Red Purifying Cleanser:
This cleanser is legitimately red (and no it doesn’t dye your face). This both unnerves and fascinates me. But it does the job, and that’s all I ask of it. This is not a foaming cleanser – which I do usually reach for. It’s a very pleasant gel consistency and definitely removes all the dirt from the face.
Active Hydrating Gel:
I’m not usually a fan of a gel moisturiser to be honest, I don’t always get the best reaction from them. This one is very pleasant and soothing – perfect for Summer. I did enjoy this, and it was a lifesaver when I had a chemical burn (cheers Natio).
Original Face Cream:
Another bomb product. This is a fantastic everyday moisturiser for those of you with combination or dry skin. It hydrates nicely, doesn’t cause pimples, isn’t overly perfumed, it just does what it’s on your mug to do. Hydrate.
