toil + trouble skin
NATURE'S NEEDLE | (formerly Botanical Botox)
suitable for all skin types | cruelty-free | fragrance-free | made in the UK
When the powers of nature lay at your very fingertips, there is really no place for needles; Mother Nature has all that is required in the quest against premature ageing and the signs of bygone times. Lines on the face are the contours of a lifetime of laughter, souvenirs of smiles that should never be erased but we also understand that preserving youth is a sacred part of almost all skincare rituals today. That’s why we created our regenerating face cream, fortified with the celebrated hibiscus flower - known in nature as ‘the botox plant’.
The hibiscus plant is innately rich in natural acids which help to gently erode dead skill cells + remedy telltale signs of irritation to leave behind a calm + renewed complexion that is firm but supple. With a little help from hibiscus flower power, cell renewal is catalysed as well as the maintenance of three vital proteins in the preservation of youth: elastin, collagen + amino acids. Blended with shea butter, olive oil, vitamin E + coconut oil, this fragrance-free face cream is luxe but lightweight - a firm favourite among the toil + trouble® founders already. Rice bran oil pacifies puffiness + evens out skin tone, all the while supplementing efforts to encourage the skin’s natural regeneration + moisture retention.
Massage into cleansed skin daily, caressing the face and neck in soft, upward motions. Gently tap with your fingertips to encourage absorption beyond the skin’s surface. Use after water or oil-based serums for ultimate reformation.
Caution: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of the reach of children. Do not store in direct sunlight.
helianthus annuus (sunflower oil) - Laced with linoleic acid + rich in omega 6 fatty acids, sunflower oil helps nourish + nurture the skin’s natural barrier. As a natural, noncomedogenic carrier oil, sunflower oil promises not to block pores, retaining moisture + defending against bacteria without a trace.
pyrus malus (apple extract) - Once the forbidden fruit but now a modern skincare staple, apple extract boasts minerals + antioxidants in abundance, true allies in the fight against free radicals. Overflowing with vital minerals + vitamin A, vitamin B complex + vitamin C, pyrus malus is instrumental in protecting against premature ageing + dulling of the skin.
vitis vinifera (grapeseed extract) - The presence of grapeseed in this multi-faceted moisturiser enables the youth-preserving properties of vitamin C to flourish, maintaining that coveted, supple elasticity we are all on a quest to harness. High antioxidant content fends against damage and soothes signs of inflammation.
