"The Editor's Choice Award is for the Vanessa Megan AEON Azure Regenerative Creme & the Petitgrain pH Cream Cleanser. I had high expectations when I first tried the AEON Azure Regenerative Creme & I wasn't disappointed, I was impressed. When I used this as a night cream for the first time, the same night as another reviewer, the next morning we both commented on the same incredible results. It really has the WOW factor, my skin was so hydrated & full looking, the fine lines completely smoothed over & any signs of stress resolved. I can't tell you how confident I felt, talk about overnight facial rejuvenation. Combined with using the cream cleanser, one of my favourite products because it is so hydrating whilst removing grime & balancing the skin, these two products give your skin a salon experience at home. I have tried the AEON Azure Creme from time to time & had the same results each morning, waking up to amazing smooth skin at 40-something is like turning 35! It comes with a Gua Sha facial massage stone which feels cool & helps the ingredients to absorb deeper into the skin, it also helps to increase circulation to the skin which is essential for skin repair & firmness. Using the Gua Sha facial tool is also very calming & restorative, the cool stone is perfect for morning eyes, for reducing puffiness. The key ingredients make this cream, it contains Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Extract, Hibiscus Oligopeptide & Colloidal Gold to name just a few." - Amina Kitching, Editor, Organic Beauty Award.

Winner of the Bronze Award AW21 best cream cleanser, this is an instant favourite in my house! Ideal for all skin types, the feedback on this cleanser was fantastic, the packaging is stunning & the ingredients 100% Natural & 87% Organic which I LOVE completely. It cleanses the skin perfectly, even eye makeup is removed effortlessly. I wet a face washer & then use a small amount of the cleanser to gently dissolve my makeup, rinse & repeat. This cleanser is so hydrating, my skin is never dry after using it & it smells beautiful & fresh, Petitgrain & May Chang essential oils help to remove excess oils from the skin, balancing & refining the skin. Highly recommended for dry skin & oily-acne prone skin alike.

CLEANSER - Finalist

"This was my favourite product to use! It’s an absolutely beautiful cleanser. Feels luxurious, the packaging is nice to look at and it doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils. Very hydrating! It’s good to see that Vanessa Megan works with suppliers who share values with their own and donates to women’s domestic violence charity. I love that."

–Madeleine Edwards

"I love the rich and creamy texture of this cleanser on my skin. It feels lovely as a first cleanse and leaves the skin feeling utterly soft. I appreciate and respect the brand’s approach and values."

– Shahrzad Kahrobai

"For someone who has dry and dehydrated skin AND wears a lot of makeup, this cream cleanser is really gentle at the same time as being really thorough. It does a fantastic job of removing oil, dirt and makeup whilst leaving skin feeling soft and hydrated. Wonderful subtle scent, too. Love the use of organic, local, wild harvested ingredients and the brand’s efforts to reduce waste and give back to society."

Australian Non-toxic awards 2020


"I really enjoyed the weight of this cream cleanser, thick enough to rub in properly and remove SPF and light makeup. My skin was left feeling clean and nourished after rinsing off easily. I admire Vanessa Megan’s dedication to sustainability, even the plastic is recyclable for this cleanser."

— Gillian Latu

"This is a lovely creamy cleanser that keeps your skin hydrated and calm. It removes makeup well and suits all skin types. It also works as a gentle exfoliant and keeps skin feeling balanced — a great multitasking product. I love how this brand formulates with organic ingredients and uses recycled materials in their packaging."

— Shahrzad Kahrobai

"I loved the easy to use tube topper and classy packaging. The packaging is a real standout and looks great in the bathroom! I also love the faint scent. I’m impressed with the organic,  nutrient rich ingredients that the product contains, and of course respect their cruelty-free and vegan certifications. I also loved their simple and compostable/recyclable packaging."

This is by far the sweetest, creamiest smelling cleanser I have ever used! Also love that it comes in 180mls as most cleansers only come in 100ml. Also love how the cleanser looks in my bathroom shelf-so elegant!

Such a luxurious cleanser

Using this cleanser in the shower makes me feel like I’m in a day spa! I love the citrusy smell and how creamy and soft it is on my skin! Now I’ve got my Mum on it! I also love that it’s 180mls, it lasts way longer than my normal cleansers

Pleasantly surprised!

Before using this product, I used oils on a cotton pad to remove my waterproof makeup. I must admit that I was a bit sceptical at first trying this cream cleanser for this purpose (I got it as part of the starter kit), but was pleasantly surprised how it worked. When applying on dry skin as suggested followed by a rinse, it does remove everything and makes my face feel clean and soft. I now got the full size flask, have been using it for several weeks and am still very happy with it.
