"The idea of slowing down sounds wonderful, even luxurious. But actually finding a reason tempting enough to pull us out of our day-to-day busyness is difficult. Not only do we like moving quickly from one thing to the next, but we feel like everyone else is encouraging us to #getstuffdone – constantly. But, every now and again, we can find a reason to stop and smell the roses. Yes, sometimes that thing really is a literal rose, but more often it’s something decadent – like a perfectly brewed cup of tea, a page-turning guilty-pleasure read, or an intoxicating self-care ritual. Immortelle Skin Care, an Australian botanical beauty brand fits into the latter category."

Immortelle Skin Care is a botanical skincare range offering luxurious nutrient dense skin treatments for a healthy and glowing complexion, targeting inflammation, environmental damage and premature ageing.
Founder, Australian Lailan Morris, brings a lifetime of experience in the beauty and wellness industries to her innovative skincare range. Still, creating Immortelle Skin Care was quite a journey. Along the way it developed into an obsession for Lailan as she unearthed new depths of awareness of the healing properties of plant oils, and also new levels of respect and care for her own body. The result of her fascination is a more profound understanding of the health of our largest organ, our skin, and the nutrients we need to support it.
As a holistic therapist, Lailan deeply understands the importance of wholesome nutrition for our wellbeing, and also of avoiding harmful toxins, in not only our food and environment but also in what we apply to our skin. “My clinical practice was the initial inspiration for me. I began by creating nurturing and healing oil blends to help my clients get through the day with more ease and less pain,” she says.
“My yoga studies taught me that our bodies love gentleness, and I see caring for your skin as a nurturing and gentle thing to do. I make skincare products that are full of natural nutrients to support the health of your skin. I'd like these beautiful botanical oils, masques and balms to also inspire you to slow down from the busyness of your day and take the time to reconnect with yourself. Perhaps a soak in the tub to soothe away your stresses with aromatic oils, and a skincare ritual that nourishes your soul as well as your skin."
