Ipsum Skin - An introduction

Let me intoduce you to an incredible brand I was very lucky to be introduced to in 2023 - Ipsum. You might have seen me rave about them, for good reasons, over on my Instagram, but honesty, it is such a beautiful brand.
Ipsum Skin - An introduction
Created by Janet who has an incredible background and insight into beauty, Ipsum has been designed to offer luxurious, clean and pure skin care that will ensure you achieve your very best skin. Using only uses certified organic, pure and natural native plant oils, esters and waxes to protect the bio-diversity of the planet and to avoid introducing unnecessary chemicals into the skincare routine.

The brand has a catalogue of products for the face and body and depending on your want and need, everything is here.

The first product I tried was the award winning Ipsum Best Skin Cleansing Oil Balm, of course and it comes packaged in a squeezy recyclable tube.  I am a huge fan of cleansing balms, so you won't be surprised to learn this was the first product I chose to use.

This Cleansing Oil Balm, which is light and airy when used, is made with a delicate vegetable formulation to nourish your skin while lemon myrtle helps unclog and tighten pores. Then with the inclusion of Sandalwood, it helps heal and soothe the skin with its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties. What I like about this balm is how it manages to remove absolutely everything in its path and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth to the touch.

The light and uplifting fragrance of both the lemon myrtle and sandalwood are really refreshing and invigorating.   

If you are a fan of facial oils, which I am, then Ipsum has some absolutely beautiful oils to choose from, three of them in fact - Nourishing, Intense Treatment and Enriching.
Ipsum Skin - An introduction
Starting with Ipsum Best Skin Nourishing Face Oil, the one I have taken to using most regularly, you get an oil which is made up of a nurturing and nourishing blend of 19 pure and organic plant oils, including Meadowfoam Seed, Raspberry Seed, Jobjoba and Carrot tissue with Australian grown and harvested oils including Macadamia Nut oil and Sandalwood. Together they offer a complex array of skin-boosting antioxidants and vitamins together with anti-inflammatory and moisturising properties to soothe, restore and help protect skin’s natural healthy glow.  

Again, it is the fragrance from Lavender, Sandalwood and Rose helps Nourishing Face Oil reduce feelings of fatigue and stress as it gently calms your skin.

Next comes the Ipsum Best Skin Face Oil Intense Treatment and this oil is described as being a luxurious, supercharged concentrate of 23 pure, organic native plant oils, rich in omega fatty acids, vitamins C, E, B6,1,3,2 and polyphenol antioxidants, for a rejuvenating, hydrating and skin-protecting intensive treatment. With this oil you have the deeply- nourishing and restorative power of plant oils including Buriti, Marula, Frankincense and Tomato Fruit extract with Australian grown and harvested botanicals. Then the inclusion of Lilly Pilly, a rich source of vitamin C and fruit acids with a high antioxidant content helps stimulate collagen production and brighten skin tone, Rosalina for its nurturing, soothing and healing properties which helps stimulate the immune system and finally Fragonia which offers powerful antibacterial and antimicrobial benefits to skin and to the respiratory system and helps maintain the body’s own melatonin production which regulates the circadian rhythm.

This oil is for use at night time and it works as you sleep to not only relax and rejuvenate but to also keep the skin supple, hydrated and protected.

The final facial oil is the Ipsum Best Skin Enriching Face Oil and this one is a nutrient-rich and powerful blend of 24 pure and organic plant oils that infuse skin with vital vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to rejuvenate, reignite and then maintain skin’s natural radiance. The formulation is super-powered by naturally- derived CoQ10 – essential for collagen production and to help maintain elasticity.  This oil uses a formulation of some incredible botanical oils which includes Olive Fruit, Hempseed, Rosehip, Apricot, Seabuckthorn and Pomegranate as well as Australian grown and harvested ingredients including Kakadu Plum Seed oil - the richest source of skin-loving and skin-brightening vitamin C and Macadamia Nut oil which is renowned for its super-moisturising and regenerative properties.  Perfect for skin that is both oily and dry skin types because it regulates natural lipid production and returns skin to its perfect balance.

Each one of these facial oils is incredible and whether you are a regular user of oils or are curious about how they work with your skin, one or all of these you will just love.

Moving onto the Ipsum Best Skin Body Oil Patchouli Rose, it is hard to not love this oil, if only for its wonderful warm earthy fragrance.

Again, this oil uses uses a warming and calming blend of 19 pure and organic plant oils, richly- scented with Patchouli and Rose, each carefully formulated to smooth and massage easily all over the body. As soon as the body oil comes into contact with your skin, it absorbs instantly leaving your skin dry to touch without any form of oily residue being left on your skin and impressively, there is no sit to sit around and wait for it to sink into the skin, you can apply, massage and dress immediately. This oil is perfect to use both day and night depending on your preference and the inclusion of nurturing botanical blend such as Avocado, Grapeseed, Argan and Jojoba oils plus Australian grown and harvested Davidson Plum Fruit extract are rich in skin-boosting antioxidants as well as Macadamia Nut oil which works to deeply nourish as you massage in.

I love a good eye cream and there is always one within my routine, so I am delighted that Ipsum has their Best Skin Eye Oil Balm.
Ipsum Skin - An introduction
As this is a product for the skin around your eyes, it is really lightweight and melts on contact with the skin. As you might have guessed by now, this product also features a whole host of ingredients and they include a complex and concentrated blend of plant oils and esters, rich in potent polyphenols, antioxidants, peptides and skin-loving vitamins including A, C and E, to deeply nourish, smooth, de-stress, de-puff and brighten the delicate skin of the eye area. So we have Collagen-boosting, antioxidant-rich Bakuchiol which helps to refine and smooth skin texture, Australian Banksia which strengthens capillaries and reduces the appearance of dark circles and it  works with Cucumber extract which has been included to soothe and reduce puffiness. Squalane helps to calm, moisturise and rehydrate skin as Carrot Seed oil, Rosehip oil and Australian Macadamia Seed oil deeply nourish and fortify skin back to healthy radiance.

On the skin, this balm is really soothing and for anyone who finds eye creams can irritate their under-eye, this absolutely does not do that. For me, it leaves my eyes looking for wide-awake, refreshed and hydrated.

The final product I have to share is one of my favourites and that is the Ipsum Lip Oil Balm, another product I have shared on Instagram a few times.
Ipsum Skin - An introduction
Described as being luxuriously rich and conditioning blend of pure and organic native plant oils, esters and waxes to instantly soothe and smooth lips with long-lasting, intense nourishment. With a light scent of rose, this balm uses a unique blend of hydrating and moisturising plant oils including Tomato Fruit extract which has high levels of skin-nurturing vitamins, then we have antioxidant lycopene to protect skin, Pomegranate Seed oil to heal and regenerate skin and finally Australian grown and harvested Macadamia oil to deeply nourish, protect and repair. The overall aim being to leave the lips comforted, feeling soft and supple as well as looking smooth and hydrated.

As you can see, this balm is in a little pot, though it is also sold in a squeezy tube and I carry this pot in my bag so I have it with me and I also bought a second one to use on my lips at night.  

So that is an introduction to Ipsum Skincare, a brand I cannot rave about enough and one I know we will see big things from over the next year or two!
