Summer Wine / Even Tone Antioxidant ShieldRegular price $65.00
.5oz l 15ml
Hours spend gardening under the sun, late nights sipping natural wine under the stars – this antioxidant cocktail infuses my skin with everything it needs to protect and recover. Sits sweetly under sunscreen, and is the perfect after sun rescue.
In 2020, Christo made natural wine with Brendon Carto, from Carto Wines, macerated moonshine bottles of Gentian bitters, and crafted wild beer with our friend Tim using our Kangaroo Valley spring water. Me, I sun-infused all their leftover plant matter into biodynamic Olive oil, until the extracts sang of warm, boozy Summer days spend with friends who’ve all had to change their lives last year.
SUMMER WINE is a collection of the good 2020 moments we seized and the beautiful things we did. Time stood still and it opened a world of beauty.
Benefits: Helps fight of free radicals and combat pollution, fade pigmentation and accelerate cell turn over, calm inflammation and reduce swelling, correct uneven skin tone and improve skin complexion.
Fragrance profile: A pitcher or Summer fruit-infused Sangria, a glass of aromatic natural wine with a subtle nose of barnyard funk. Layers of raisin, summer fruit, herbaceous lift, a hint of cinnamon, strawberry and faint vanilla – it's there and then it's gone, drunk deeply by the skin of your face.
