Intuitive skincare seems like a whole mood for 2022, but the truth is that it’s been part of the Skin Creamery philosophy from the very beginning. Ready to tune into your own skin? Let’s go…
Ever heard of intuitive eating? It’s a dietary style that does away with obsessive rule-following and restrictions, and instead advocates for tapping into your body’s actual hunger cues. No, not the cues telling you to eat a bag of Chuckles every five minutes – the ones that are more like, ‘Brain fog alert; I need more protein in my life’. If this were the Metaverse, we’d probably call it a user-led nourishment experience.
Intuitive skincare is the same concept. Forget robotic adherence to a daily routine and instead nourish your skin with what it needs in that particular moment. The really cool part? Unlike bodily hunger cues, which can take some practice to tune into, your skin is an open book just waiting to tell you how to help it out.
Let’s be clear: intuitive skincare is not some woo-woo, unscientific exercise. It’s about conducting an empirical investigation of your own face in terms of moisture levels, oil balance and texture, then linking what you observe to a probable cause and choosing products accordingly.
Too often, the skincare industry is focused on skin beauty rather than skin health. That’s putting the cart before the horse, because the glow-up we’re all looking for is actually just a byproduct of helping your skin barrier to function optimally. Opt for skin health, rather than piling on products to target surface-level imperfections, and say hello to the glow.
This is also the philosophy behind well ageing. By nourishing your skin, rather than trying to ‘combat the signs of ageing’ (you know, the marketing spiel we start receiving in our pre-teens), your skin will look happy and healthy no matter what stage of life you’re transitioning into.
When you’re practising intuitive skincare, you want to know that you’re giving your skin the best. We’re so grateful that a lot of you out there think that ‘the best’ equals Skin Creamery. In fact, so do the judges at The Beauty Shortlist Awards 2022, which celebrates the best products and brands in the natural beauty and wellness arena. Skin Creamery recently took home not one but two Editor’s Choice awards, for our Shower Oil and The Balm. Reason enough to give them a try!
Please would you advise on which of your products I should use for a mature skin?
Many thanks 😊
Oh yes please!! An eye cream from Skin Creamery!! Sign me up:)
I love your products! I found them when searching for something to save my skin after a disastrous experience with acids. Your Everyday Cream and Oil-Milk Cleanser have been added to my all-time favourite products. I also bought a travel size of the Deep Cleansing Powder and while I like using it, I find it a bit cumbersome in that I have to pour it out onto my hand and then add Oil-Milk cleanser or water to it before use. I find it awkward even in my own bathroom but especially when traveling. I’d love an exfoliator that comes ready-prepared. Thank you for creating awesome products!
I love all your products, but I find the oils don’t travel well. I have bought the travel sizes so I can refill them, but there is still some wastage.
I am always raving about your products to friends – but they must be able to travel well too. Your shower oil also doesn’t travel well. The sachets only lasts for a few days.
Your balm is exceptional. Now please make an eye cream! It’s the one product I still have to source elsewhere. I am in my fifties and I take very good care of my skin, but eye care is vital during ageing.
Keep up your excellent work.

I absolutely love your skincare range. The Everyday cream is my favorite. I love the velvety texture and the relaxing subtle fragrance that leaves my senses so relax. What’s better than coconut, Jojoba and Baobab. It’s truely a proudly South African brand. Thankyou.
