Skin Genius

Tackle breakouts the natural way with these organic products, for teens and older

In the super-competitive world of beauty it can be difficult to stand out, but despite being less than three years old Skin Genius has caught our attention. This natural and organic skincare brand is aimed at young skin, especially teens with acne and inflammation.

Muddy Surrey editor’s tween is a big fan (see her 2016 review here), and she’s not the only one. At this year’s Beauty Shortlist Awards the brand won three gold awards for its facewash, clarifying lotion and moisturiser and the facewash also picked up a bronze at the Free From Beauty Awards.

Skin Genius is the passion project of beautician Julia Vearncombe and her friend Hilery Dorrian, a homeopath. The pair teamed up after they discovered that many of their clients had little idea about which products their children should be using on spotty skin, but knew for sure they wanted something without chemicals.

Skin Genius launched at the end of 2015, but has just had a redesign.

It’s not too girly, which makes it a product range teenage boys will also happily use, although it’s what’s inside that really counts. The long ingredients list – all 100% natural and organic – includes things like witch hazel, calendula, mallow, lemon tea tree, aloe vera, lavender. You won’t find parabens, sulfates, petroleum or any of those other nasties.

Living up to its tagline “be clear, be confident, be you”, Skin Genius also has a load of hints and tips about how to deal with acne on its website.
