Little-known New Zealand-based brand, Kiwi Botanicals, is the talk of the internet right now – and for good reason.
The beauty brand has just three products on its roster but they’re already making waves in the skincare world thanks to their sustainable ethos and effective skin-boosting solutions.
The brand boasts three Manuka honey-infused cleansers: nourishing honey melt facial cleanser, brightening honey melt facial cleanser, designed to revive dull looking skin to reveal your radiant glow and purifying honey melt facial cleanser to tackle impurities and leave your skin feeling balanced and smooth. The reason they’re so damn popular? Each of the cleansers costs just £5 (!).
Each cleanser is made of Manuka honey drip which contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes that have been used as a skin remedy in New Zealand for over 2,000 years and the brand prides itself on offering the cleanest, most sustainable honey. “Clean beauty is more than just clean skin,” they say. “Kiwi Botanicals’ Manuka Honey is sustainably harvested by the principle Maōri tribe of the South Island of New Zealand and is manufactured in a facility with fair work standards, and we’re PETA frickin’ certified cruelty-free! Put that on your face.”
The reviews are impressive, too. Writing about the purifying cleanser, one fan wrote: “The Kiwi Botanicals Purifying Honey Melt Facial Cleanser is an absolute must have for detoxing your face. The charcoal in the product gets out all the impurities and the Manuka Honey makes your face feel so clean and soft. I really enjoyed trying this product and will be recommending it to all my friends.” While another reviewer described the nourishing cleanser as ‘awesome’, writing: “It feels so good on my face. It smells great too! A little bit goes a long way. I can feel this product nourishing my face as soon as I put it on. It creates a nice lather and gets rid of all the dirt on my face. Afterwards, my face feels nice and smooth.”
The cleansers are available online at Walmart (if you want to fork out the shipping fee). In the meantime, we’ll be watching this space (and praying!) for a UK launch.
