Crystal Cleansing Water and DIY Stone Facials: Girl Undiscovered Gives Ethical Skincare An Ethereal Spin
“It’s for the dreamer, the wanderer who wants to make the world a little more interesting and beautiful…”
“We were drawn to crystals for a myriad of reasons; visually, how they sound in the bottle, the way they capture the light, and how they represent more of a holistic view of the world — a belief in a bit of magic in the universe,” explain Charlotte Devereux and Philly Gebbie, co-founders of Girl Undiscovered, of the otherworldly powers behind their New Zealand-based brand that’s built a reputation for their transparency and ethical ingredient sourcing.
With collagen-boosting thanaka tree bark, anti-inflammatory kanuka honey, and healing cold pressed coconut oil infused to their ethereal line of products, the pair is proving that 100% wild is as efficacious as organic, with a sustainable edge.
What IS Crystal Cleansing Water?
According to Charlotte and Philly, the label was created to offer natural skincare for the “girl who wanted a bit more from her beauty products — it’s for the dreamer, the wanderer who wants to make the world a little more interesting and beautiful,” and the quartz crystals the brand has become notorious for (which are sourced ethically from Brazil) encapsulate this philosophy.
The brand’s culty Under The Waterfall Crystal Cleansing Water is infused with several stones including citrine, rose and amethyst quartz. “There’s something relaxing and quite charming about the way they gently clink together in the glass bottle and activate as you use it.” The water itself is a unique fusion of cucumber, aloe juice, thanaka bark extract and coconut water that work together to brighten and cleanse skin without harsh chemicals or acids. “We liked the idea of elevating this into a sensory experience with the crystals, the way they look, sound and emanate light and good energy in the bottle.”
Mastering The Energetic Stone Facial:
Taking the experience to a supernatural level is top of mind for the pair. “We created these products to encourage girls to take time for themselves in the effort to help make skincare rituals part of their wider selfcare practice,” they explain as we discuss the energetic stone massage designed to accompany their Stars Aligning Face Elixir Oil. “We have a set of six Stars Aligning Crystals to accompany our elixir for a DIY facial — using these to massage the oil into your face helps balance and illuminate your skin with an extra kind of power.”
DIY CRYSTAL FACIAL TIPS:
Concentrating on the contours of your jawline, brows and cheekbones, massage the crystals over the facial elixir to help release muscle tension in the face as well as drain away any puffiness from the day.
“Your skin will not only glow, but the crystals will help you to relax and bring you a sense of calm,” Charlotte and Philly note — and they should know. “Almost each surface of our headquarters in Auckland, New Zealand, is adorned with some kind of crystal collection — they’re constantly bringing us inspiration and positive energy!”
