Founded by Australian brothers Keston and Jeremy Muijs in 2008, Melbourne-based beauty brand Grown Alchemist is a clean, fuss-free line that focuses on optimising skin health, and is packaged beautifully in minimalist apothecary-style packaging.

The range is a combination of science and nature complementing each other, to create skincare and body care products that drastically improve skin texture and showcase the most powerful anti-ageing results.

We round up five of our favourites from the cult beauty brand — from their skincare line to body care products.

Hydra-Restore Cream Cleanser

Enriched with antioxidant-rich olive leaf and Plantago extract, the Hydra-Restore Cream Cleanser gently removes makeup and cleanses without dehydrating or irritating the complexion. It will leave your skin feeling soft, clean and soothed, which we absolutely adore.

Instant Smoothing Serum

If there’s anything on the list that is a definite must-buy, it would be the Instant Smoothing Serum. It is a lightweight hyaluronan serum that can be used as an instant plumping and priming treatment before an evening out, or as a treatment to counteract skin damage (such as sunburn and dryness from air-conditioning). The ingredients are a combination of plant-derived high, medium and low weight Hyaluronan molecules, that penetrate deep into the skin’s structure and delivers hydration quickly and deeply.

Hydra-Repair Day Cream

This feels like a heavy cream that goes on rich but instead feels light on the skin. It dries down into a semi-matte finish that makes the skin very comfortable, perfect as a pre-makeup moisturizer. Plus, we love that it smells absolutely divine — a lovely geranium scent that is not overpowering or too heady at all.

Key ingredients in this day cream, like camellia and rosehip oil, improves hydration and conditions the skin, leaving your skin feeling ever so smooth and soft.

Lip + Hand Kit

For all those with dry hands and dry lips — the rich, hydrating hand cream will leave your hands feeling soft and smooth. Paired with this luxuriously silky antioxidant lip balm that leaves your lips feeling hydrated and conditioned, you’ll be moisturized from head to toe. Plus, it makes a great gift for the festive season.

Hydra+ Body Cleanser

Formulated to hydrate, clean and nourish dry skin, the Hydra+ Body Cleanser leaves the skin conditioned, cleansed, and soft and smooth. Enriched with antioxidants from Fermented Paw Paw Extract, it also helps to promote skin renewal and cell turnover while cleansing, and increasing elastin levels to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
