QED Skincare has been on our radar for a while now due to its hand-blended plant-based skincare, so we jumped at the chance to learn more about the range from the formulator herself pharmacist Shoshanna Eisner at a recent beauty editor event in Sydney.
Shoshana has taken her formulating knowledge and understanding of real skin concerns (including signs of ageing, acne, redness and eczema) to develop fragrance free, tailored skincare that provided solutions for sensitised skin of all ages and skin-types.
One-hundred percent Aussie designed, formulated and made, QED blends natural ingredients with non-toxic alternatives to create safe, high performance products free of parabens, mineral oils, sulphates and formaldehyde.
New products from QED Skincare (the hype is real)
Could this be more ingenious?! QED’s four No-Rinse Cleansers make face washing infinitely easier and quicker while saving sensitised skin from irritation.
Shoshana says, “Washing your face with water is actually bad for your skin as it strips the moisture from your already dehydrated face. By removing water from your routine & using a hydrating cleanser, you will deeply cleanse & remove makeup whilst treating your skin & boosting at the same time. Cleansing is the most important step in your skincare regimen. Most people are using cleansers that strip & damage their skin, leaving a huge task for their moisturisers.
“Once you try a no-rinse cleanser, it will become your best friend. Our clients are hooked as you honestly instantly feel & see the difference in your skin.”
No-Rinse Cleansers are easy to use. Simply massage a couple of pumps-worth face using a cotton pad or cloth to wipe off. NO RINSING REQUIRED. This regimen should be repeated day & night followed with an application of moisturiser.
There is a No-Rinse Cleanser for all skin types – Wrinkle Rewind N- Rinse Cleanser (Anti- Aging), Deep Hydration No- Rinse Cleanser (Dry Skin), Lite Protect No-Rinse Cleanser (Normal/Combination Skin), Ultra-Sensitive Treatment Cleanser (Ultra-Sensitive/ Re-Active & Very Dry Skin).
