The magic ingredient in Elizabeth Barbalich’s certified organic skin care line is the uber-penetrating, vitamin packed (A, B1, B2, D and E, omega 3 and 9), 100% pure New Zealand avocado oil. (We guess even mummies with a background in science and naturopathy can’t convince their three kids to ‘ave an avo, after serving them guacamole dip with dinner for the 1904th time!). If only we could get the All-black rugby union side to admit they moisturise before they hakka… The Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream smells lush. And if you already have a signature scent, you'll be pleased to know it serves a residual purpose of stimulating collagen for perky peepers. What you’ll get: Natural products that play a biggish part in the Antipodean belief of ‘holistic skincare’. What you won’t: Mineral oils, artificial colours and fragrances, animal products (except honey and beeswax) or a free set of steak knives.
