Get your skin into formation!
You hear a lot about Wheatgerm Oil when it comes to skincare...but what actually is it? We worship it for its skin balancing properties, thanks to its minerals, vitamins and protein-stacked assets. It fortifies your skin, arming it with skin irritation and pollution impact busting artillery. It also has regenerative properties, leaving you with smoother, younger-looking skin. Oh, and here’s the best bit, Wheatgerm Oil is highly effective against wretched stretch marks and blemishes too.…hoorah!
We love it in our WINK! Eye Cream for its healing, skin fortifying properties for a smooth eye area aesthetic.
