In our wildest dreams, we never imagined that we’d come across a beauty range that simultaneously boasts 100% organic ingredients, that’s formulated by a doctor of medicine-cum-medical herbalist-cum-skincare expert, that’s produced in-house from start to finish and that also claims a signature ‘Bio-Lipophilic Matrix’ (we’ll get to that later) … but, against all odds, it would appear that we have!

For Dr. Spiezia, the Founder of Inlight Beauty – and widely considered to be the father of the organic beauty movement in Britain – his 30+ years of theoretical and empirical study have culminated in a cast of truly luxurious products.
 With a passion for ‘science, alchemy and wellness’, he combines orthodox medicine with the ‘extraordinary power of nature’ to create formulations that reside at the cutting edge of research in both scientific and beauty fields. At the heart of each and every product is its own unique fusion of particles, molecules and atoms, or the ‘Bio-Lipophilic Matrix’, which closely resemble the composition of the skin’s own sebum, and are depicted as corresponding symbols onto each glass container.

We got our hands on a selection to put them to the test – and to luxuriate a little longer in our bathrobes... Any excuse, right?

Chocolate Mask
Good enough to eat (except, maybe don’t), this pudding-like formula is the organic beauty equivalent of gorging on a chocolate orange that makes your skin glow. Even though there’s no real choccie-to-chops contact (despite all of the temptation), you’ll still manage to get a taste of what this blend – complete with its star Grenadian cocoa ingredient – has to offer. After 10 minutes of pure indulgence, wash the balmy residue away to reveal skin that’s supple and delectably nourished. Bon appétit!

Face Oil
Its name doesn’t claim a thing – but don’t let that fool you! Before you even apply this oil, you’ll be taken in by its subtle notes of vanilla and rose that’ll leave you sighing with delight. A combination of healing blue mallow, astringent rosehip and balancing jojoba oil, this treatment has been formulated to stimulate skin cell renewal, whilst protecting it from everyday environmental damage. The best bit is how quickly this (surprisingly) non-oily oil sinks into the skin, replacing lost moisture while acting as a perfect base for makeup.

Discovery Set
A great idea for anyone who wants to trial the range before committing to the full size, this bit-of-everything set includes a weekend’s worth of Face Oil, Line Softener Intensive, Make-Up Remover and Under-Eye Revive – a marvellous medley that gives a good idea of the kind of indulgent formulas you can expect from the full range. Think heavenly scented blends of phyto extracts with intensely rich textures that feel best when applied with a spoon. Sit back, and watch in amazement as your skin happily drinks it all in…
