The matcha-infused formula glides on to damp skin to take off the day’s grime, whilst exfoliating it so that you can flaunt a more radiant and softer complexion.

4. Peach & Lily Matcha Pudding Antioxidant Cream
This fluffy moisturiser is great for dry and/or mature skin. Apart from matcha, it contains niacinamide, panthenol and adenosine, which come together to deeply nourish, firm up and brighten the skin. The lightweight texture and matte finish ensure that your face stays hydrated, without looking greasy.
5. Juicy Chemistry Kakadu Plum, Matcha & Blood Orange Face Mask
This delicious mask is a pro at tackling hyperpigmentation and acne scars. Chockfull of vitamin C-enriched essential oils, this formula delivers even-toned and brighter skin after just a few uses.
