LESSE is the epitome of a simple, stripped-back approach to skincare. There are only four products in its entire range: a serum, mask, cleanser and hydrating mist. All are made from organic ingredients and high-performance botanicals, designed to deliver effective results without taking up a whole bathroom shelf.
Neada lists organic flame tree and Tremella fuciformis (snow mushroom) as some of her favourite botanicals used in LESSE.
Flame tree, found in the Refining Cleanser and Bioactive Mask, is a flavonoid and active botanical with a higher antioxidant capacity than vitamin C, so it will fade dark spots and improve skin quality faster. Tremella fuciformis, found in the Regeneration Mist, is described as “nature’s answer to hyaluronic acid” – but is about 100x more effective in hydrating skin.
Despite this, Neada gets the scepticism towards natural or organic products. “I have been where you are: longing to use organic products but finding that time and time again they don’t yield the same results as synthetic chemicals,” she says. “But our products are proof that you can achieve even greater results from botanicals when they are formulated correctly”.
You can also score great results with a few simple tricks – which brings us back to how the ice cube fits in. We asked Neada to tell us what her daily skincare routine looks like and the products she can’t live without.
