Tracey Foy, the founder and creator of Mel Millis contacted me to see if I'd like to try her new range Phytonutri Qi*. I was expecting to receive one of the items in the fabulous new range to review so you can imagine my delight and surprise when I received the whole range of the latest launches. Thanks so much once again Tracey.
The products are inspired by the power of natural ingredients and sourced from the Arctic to the Atlantic Ocean.
Products are "cruelty-free and sustainably sourced, with certified organic and natural ingredients handpicked to deliver exceptional and effective results".
I first tried Mel Millis when I received two products in a Souk Souk box - see my review of the Organic Neroli Hydrolate Mist Tonic and the Organic Phytonutri Neroli & Baobab Re-Energising Face Oil here. This face oil received a Janey Lee Grace Platinum Award this year for Best Face Oil and Tracey received a Bronze award from FreeFrom SkinCare Awards 2014 for her Rose & Pomegranate Rebalancing Face Oil.
The products came in a beautiful branded Mel Millis box stuffed full of shredded paper and packed full of goodies! I so love the packaging with the wild flower seeds embedded in the boxes. Plant them in your garden or in a windowbox and the honeybees will love you!
Phytonutri Qi Plankton Skin Remedy (200g - £68)* - this is one of the most unusual products I've ever used! The cleanser comes in powder form and you mix it with water to form a paste before applying it to the skin in circular motions before removing with warm water. You can also use it as a face mask leaving on for 10 minutes before rinsing. It helps to brighten, increase elasticity, firm and help with the first signs of ageing. Stuffed full of bioactives, natural enzyme produced hyaluronic acid, Nutmeg, Spriulina, Green Tea extract, Gingseng, Cocoa, Moroccan Laval Clay and infused with Vanilla and Rose Petal Powder.
Phytonutri Qi Energising MM Face Peel (50ml - £48)* - use this re-mineralising honey mask once a week. It fortifies the skin while Glycolic Acid helps the active ingredients of Hyaluronic Acid penetrate the skin and act on living cells. It helps to increase collagen and help with skin density. Citrus oils refresh. The skin is left radiant, energised, smooth and soft. Take a generous scoop and work into a paste with a few drops of water. Apply to the skin (this takes a bit of practice to smooth it over) and leave for ten minutes. Remove with the warmed organic muslin cloth.
Phytonutri Qi Enriching Sea Plant Jelly (15ml - £48)* - containing Hyaluronic Acid which deeply hydrates the skin along with bio organic oils and plant extracts the jelly regenerates and rejuvenates the skins elasticity. It also contains Immortelle, Frankincense and Rose to restore and moisturise the skin. Apply a pea sized amount to the skin before moisturising.
Phytronutri Qi Enhancing Arctic Essence (30ml - £85)* - this serum smoothes, freshens, plumps and repairs the skin. It is stuffed full of good things for the skin including Arctic Cranberry and Arctic Blackcurrant extracts, Organic Frankincense, Patchouli and Rose to stimulate cells and repair damage caused by skin ageing. Apply a few drops to the fingertips massaging into the skin in circular motions.
I can quite honestly say this is one of the nicest and most effective skincare ranges I have ever used. My favourites are the Enriching Sea Plant Jelly and the Enhancing Arctic Essence.
