What...Tandem, the all-new brand from the founders of Sister & Co.

Why... Because a streamlined range at an accessible price point is what you get here.

Toners, mists, serums, exfoliators, masks, moisturisers, supplements... overwhelmed? We feel you.  Skin can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. Tandem arrive as the antidote with their stripped-back approach. 

The formula? Simplicity in a four-step regime (exfoliators and boosters can be switched in and out), pared-back design, and high-performance, non-convoluted ingredients, which are natural, vegan, organic and free of nasties. New-to-market, the brand have cut out any 'middle-men' – selling direct-to-consumer – meaning there are no retail markups and nothing in the range exceeds the £25 mark. Get in, we're going shopping...



First up, the silky milky Cleansing Hero dissolves dirt, excess sebum and makeup is the upshot of this, well, hero. Meanwhile, two or three times a week, the liquid alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs)-bolstered Easy Exfoliator should be used in place of the cleanser to encourage brighter, visage

Then comes a treat for the skin: as your second step, work in one of the two boosters. The vitamin C-rich Brightening Booster increases collagen and decreases dullness, while the natural salicylic acid-infused Back-On-Track Booster keeps breakouts at bay and targets excess shine.



Moisturising and protecting comes in third. Here, we have a choice for dry, oily, normal or combination skin with the More Than Moisturiser and More Than Moisturiser Rich. Both harness the power of ceramides to help restore elasticity, but the bulk of ingredients differ. The richer looks to retinol's natural alternative, bakuchiol, to rebuild collagen, pairing with kakadu plum for a vitamin C boast; the lighter formula is built on softening squalene and hyaluronic acid, which draws water to the skin and locks it in. Magic!



Finally, a deliciously-scented fatty acid concoction of rosehip, baobab and cacay oil ties it all together, calms the skin and seals in all the former goodness. Grease-free, you can't go wrong!

Ingredients and price points aside, 
the brand place an emphasis on reducing environmental harm in every step of the process – think sustainable sourcing and either glass or recyclable sugar cane derived bioplastic products. What's not to love?
