Last week I met the founders of Suti, an organic skincare collection that attempts to harness the potency of flowers, plants and crystals. Suzannah Jenkins and Tina Steadman set up the small but growing range in October 2010 using Suzannah's extensive knowledge as an experienced homeopathy and aromatherapy practioner.
Both ladies are obsessively passionate about the quality of the ingredients they use in the range and claim it is so pure and natural, you can eat it. Suzannah has also been working with crystals in her practise and is impressed with the additional energy they can impart to products. She told us "I take the crystals -mostly clear quartz for purity- and place them under a full moon, which is very powerful and feminine. The crystals are then put into the production bottles of oil, where the energy is imparted into the plant oils. When the products are made, everytime someone wears or applies the products this energy transfers to the wearer."
Now bonkers as this might sound, anyone who has been affected by the lunar calendar and goes a teeny bit emotional (in the nicest possible way) when it's a full moon (that'll be Jane and loads of our readers) or studied biodynamics and its effect on agriculture, knows there something in this full moon malarkey. So I am quite fascinated by the whole idea of using crystals to add an additional potency.
I've been using the Rejuvenate Organic face oil for a couple of days and it soaks into my skin and softens it beautifully, it also smells divine. There are no preservatives or additives in the range and everything is organic, it is suitable for even the most sensitive of skins, look at the website to see the rest of the range.
So ladies (and men, if there are any who fancy the sound of it) we have two bottles of the Rejuvenate Organic Face Oil (which includes rosehip seed, evening primrose and argan oil and frankincense) to give away for you to test, in return for a few lines letting us know what you thought of it.
Usual rules, leave us a comment below and tell us why your skin might need a pick-me-up, with or without the Moon/crystal quartz powers, and we'll pick two winners by the end of the week.
