A ultra-gentle, detoxifying and deep-cleansing gel, with both exfoliation and brightening properties, leaving skin feeling very soft. It is a black gel, contains no oils and rinses clean and yet it is moisturizing and hydrating. The scent is somehow both uplifting and refreshing and yet also warming and soothing. Confusing? Perhaps. You'll have to try it to understand ECLIPSE's magic!
Dust stuck to my sweaty face and neck as we hauled our heavy packs into the second tuktuk of the journey. The sun was beginning to set by now, and I couldn't wait to feel a relief from the searing, stifling heat. The faintest breeze came came off the Indian Ocean, and I closed my eyes and clutched onto both my child and the tiny vehicle's "safety" bar as we hauled ourselves through the traffic of downtown Colombo. I couldn't wait to get in the shower, scrub the stickiness and heat off my body and curl up with my book in our hotel. I also couldn't wait to create the cleanser that would make my skin feel instantly detoxified, refreshed and clean but not at all tight and dry. This cleanser is the traveller's saviour.
A gentle, oil-free gel cleanser that is pH-balanced for optimal skin health (4.4 to 5 depending on batch), and provides a mild, foamy experience. This formula is both nourishing and deeply cleansing, at the same time! It is also exfoliating, thanks to fruit enzymes and white willow bark, and brightening due to licorice root. A lovely paradox, this pitch-black gel...as it reveals the opposite yet complementary functions of a great cleanse.
Activated coconut charcoal detoxifies and cleanses pores at a very deep level, while white willow bark exfoliates and calms inflamed skin. Licorice root brightens and evens the complexion and A lovely, refreshing morning cleanse, but just as effective as an end-of-day-please-just-wash-it-all-away kind of cleanser. Lovely cardamom is both cooling and warm (magic!), and balances all doshas. Please note colour can vary from batch to batch, from black to shades of grey.

Squirt a dime-sized amount in palm, and massage over damp or dry skin. Let sit for 15-30 seconds, then rinse off with warm water. Pat dry, and follow with a moisturiser (your favourite Stark oil, of course). Toner is not necessary as this is pH balanced, but facial mists are always welcome. :)

An ultra-nourishing oil with exquisite, precious ingredients to revive skin. This luxurious blend works overtime to generate a youthful glow... while you catch up on beauty sleep!
Although this is your first time in a citrus grove at dusk, you can't help but feel this distinctly familiar feeling. It must be the scent; a fresh, uplifting floral with both a familiar citrus heart and an earthy warmth that you sense equally by your nose and somewhere deep in your body. "I must have been a Queen who bathed in neroli blossoms in a former life," you muse to yourself as you weave randomly between the stout, knotted trees. Suddenly, you slip on a ripe orange that fell beneath a tree, and although you are pulled down to the ground and feel the wet grass in your hair and the warm earth beneath your body, you are not at all hurt and laugh so hard that tears roll down your face. You have been reminded to slow down, to enjoy the stillness of the evening, to celebrate youthful joy as it comes and to take a deep breath. You look up at the branches overhead, heavy with fragrant fruit, and just beyond, watch the night sky appear, star by star.
A night-time treatment worth falling for, carefully formulated using the most nourishing oils, complete with generous doses of unique lipid superheroes such as tamanu, pomegranate, evening primrose oil, black cumin seed, black currant, seabuckthorn and more. This regenerating oil was created to help soothe, soften and replenish skin using some of the most exquisite oils available for skin that looks restored and younger (but still just as wise).
What it does: Just 5 drops is enough to restore tired skin to a dewy, youthful glow. Each precious oil was selected to regenerate collagen and elasticity in the skin, rebalance pH and barrier function, soften, soothe and heal skin as well as reduce pigmentation marks and scars. Rich in GLAs, palmitoleic acid, anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants, (all of which skin needs desparetely by the age of 30) this is the night time elixir your skin has been crying out for. This is an incredibly luxe oil, if we do say so.
What it is: A medium-rich night-time oil serum that melts and absorbs into skin quickly. Neroli oil, besides being one of the most exquisite (if not THE most exquisite) essential oils available, is also an excellent healing potion for both mind and body. It is calming and relieves anxiety while helping skin to stimulate cell-regeneration which promotes a more youthful appearance. Patchouli helps ground the ethereal scent, and is also helps skin age gracefully.
Who is it for?:
Reverse bottle and hold still for 3 seconds...no tapping or shaking (or, gasp! smacking) of the bottle. Use 5 drops (or more as needed), and press onto your chin, cheeks and forehead, then smooth onto skin in an upward motion (work against gravity...not WITH it.) Please note that some sedimentation can occur.
