Louise Devine, the Founder of Devine Oils shares an interview here after being included in Splendour Box, an Australian green subscription box.
Read all about us and the 100% Organic Serum that was included.
We have had a lot of exposure after being included in this box and just love sharing other peoples wonderful Australian business's.
The Devine Oil Skincare range’s inspiration came from a few different angles over a number of years. It was born when Louise started making her own ‘clean and free of nasties’ skincare products at home for family and she then started gifting to friends. After 15 years, much experimentation and trials the Brand now offers a range of Skin Care that remains integral to Louise’s core beliefs and ultimately the Devine Oils brand! In addition, keeping all the products fresh, organic and free from nasties such as Parabens, SLES or PEG’s will always be at the company’s core. Devine Oils became Cruelty Free Accredited within a year of trading as Louise has zero tolerance for animal testing and needed to separate Devine Oils from companies that do.
What makes the Devine Oils range so special and unique?
We are special because all items are made to order so everyone receives Skin Care that’s just a few days old. In addition to the high quality of service we are able to offer clients we also have a Bespoke ‘Skin Your Way’ Range which is a unique range of products made specifically for an individual’s skin care needs.
Every aspect of the Company supports other Australian businesses enabling us to retain the smallest footprint and leave the least damage on this earth. Our packaging is made of post-consumer Australian waste paper which is recyclable and we only use glass which can also be recycled once the label is removed. Our Range includes over 84% Certified Organic Oils.
Lastly, and this is my favourite – for every full size product ordered we pop in a free 5ml or 10ml sample of something not already tried.
The Open Pore Serum is included in our March Boxes. Where should we use this product in our daily skincare routine?
Open Pore Serum should be applied after cleansing and before any other product, ideally include in AM and PM routines. The Organic Aloe Vera Gel is easily absorbed. Gently patted onto a clean face and neck. Stroke towards hairline to stimulate blood flow and allow optimum absorption and effect. Takes moments to dry and you need very little of the product. 30ml should last 3 months when used as directed.
What are the benefits of using the Open Pore Serum?
