Editor’s Choice Award
“The Editor’s Choice Award is for the Vanessa Megan AEON Azure Regenerative Creme & the Petitgrain pH Cream Cleanser. I had high expectations when I first tried the AEON Azure Regenerative Creme & I wasn’t disappointed, I was impressed. When I used this as a night cream for the first time, the same night as another reviewer, the next morning we both commented on the same incredible results. It really has the WOW factor, my skin was so hydrated & full looking, the fine lines completely smoothed over & any signs of stress resolved. I can’t tell you how confident I felt, talk about overnight facial rejuvenation. Combined with using the cream cleanser, one of my favourite products because it is so hydrating whilst removing grime & balancing the skin, these two products give your skin a salon experience at home. I have tried the AEON Azure Creme from time to time & had the same results each morning, waking up to amazing smooth skin at 40-something is like turning 35! It comes with a Gua Sha facial massage stone which feels cool & helps the ingredients to absorb deeper into the skin, it also helps to increase circulation to the skin which is essential for skin repair & firmness. Using the Gua Sha facial tool is also very calming & restorative, the cool stone is perfect for morning eyes, for reducing puffiness. The key ingredients make this cream, it contains Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Extract, Hibiscus Oligopeptide & Colloidal Gold to name just a few.” – Amina Kitching, Editor, Organic Beauty Award.
When did you start your brand & what inspired you?
I started making my own skincare in 2001 after being inspired by my best friend’s phrase ‘You should never put anything on your skin you wouldn’t eat’. In 2001 there was nothing like this on the market, so I started making my own skincare, for myself, family & friends. After 8 years of training, trialling and testing I launched ‘Vanessa Megan’ skincare [in 2009].
Which product out of your range is your favourite & why?
I can’t live without our N.E.O oil. [aka – 12 hour miracle oil] It is like a multivitamin shot for my skin and is the product responsible for eliminating every single bit of my pigmentation. I owe it dearly!
Which ingredient out of your range are your favourite & why?
I am really loving Bakuchiol extract at the moment. It is a 100% natural result driven extract, which is nature’s answer to retinol. It is one of the hero ingredients in our award winning product Aeon Azure™.
Why is natural makeup &/or skincare so important?
My belief is that what you put in or on your skin – you are. I have proven it time and time again, that a natural ingredient will synchronise with your own human biology so much better than a synthetic will. The results are immediate and long-lasting.
What is the most common skincare mistake?
One of the most common skincare mistakes is not removing makeup before bed. Many people forget to cleanse, this simple pre-bed step will set you up for great skin for life.
What’s the most important piece of advice we should keep in mind?
Cleanse at night only. Not morning. Why? If you have oily skin, removing the excess will just make your skin produce more sebum during the day, making it oilier and conversely, if you have dry skin, you want to keep those precious oils on your skin for protection and hydration, removing them will just make your skin dryer. Try this simple step and see the difference in your own skin!
