Like probably everyone else who has tried True Nature Botanicals, I’m absolutely in love with this organic skincare brand. Starting with its packaging, which looks beautiful and luxurious. These bottles are made from glass, so I’m definitely going to repurpose after finishing the products. If you haven’t heard about True Nature Botanicals before, it has a large skincare range with a selection of natural, organic products. The products that I’ve tried are Exfoliating Cleanser, Mist, Face Oil, Face Serum, Night Serum With Retinol, and Everyday Sheer Coverage Tinted Moisturizer in shade Light Tint.
In order to try all these lovely products, I had to put aside my recent skincare routine for two weeks and see how the new products work for my skin. If you have sensitive skin like I have, then you know how scary it is to start using a bunch of new products at once! Of course, curiosity always wins, and after this experiment, I was left with a few products that I liked a lot.
Pacific Exfoliating Cleanser* (120ml)
For some reason, the word “exfoliating” in skincare often makes me cringe. Despite the fact that this creamy exfoliating cleanser is more like a scrub than a cleanser, I enjoyed using it a lot. It didn’t remove my makeup well (especially, mascara), so I used it after my everyday cleanser for extra cleaning and softness. The cleanser contains tiny, almost non-existing exfoliating grains, so it’s suitable for all skin types. It has an herbal scent of geranium and lavender, which is quite intense, but at the same time feels calming and relaxing.
Pacific Mist* (120ml)
A pure plant-based mist made with green and white tea, neroli, sea fennel, and a mix of tuberose, jasmine, and neroli essential oils. It doesn’t contain alcohol if you’re trying to avoid it. I like that the mist has a strong neroli scent, which makes me feel active, happy, and energized. That’s why I keep it on my work table so I could use it whenever I need to refresh my skin and my mind.
Pacific Face Oil* (30ml)
Filled with healing oils and antioxidants, this face oil is a perfect addition to my skincare routine. Just look how many goodies it contains, starting with grapeseed, marula, chia, borage, papaya, passion fruit, argan, kiwi seed, and even watermelon seed oil. I expected it to be heavy, but it has an awesome moisturizing but non-greasy consistency. Also, it smells divine! I can’t stop sniffing that subtle, lovely scent. I use this Face Oil right after spraying my face with the Mist because I find that these two work perfectly well together.
True Nature Botanicals has a range of serums as well. It contains four serums, and I was fortunate to try samples of Pacific Face Serum* (7.5ml) and Pacific Night Serum with Retinol* (7.5ml). The Face Serum was a bit disappointing – it didn’t give enough hydration and moisture for my skin. Though it would be ideal for combination and oily skin types because it absorbs so well, doesn’t leave the skin oily, and makes it soft and revived. Pacific Night Serum with Retinol is another story – I’m so in love with it that I can’t even begin to describe how good my skin feels after applying this serum before going to bed. Not only it’s really moisturizing, but also increases collagen production and repairs damaged skin, which makes it a wonderful anti-aging treatment.
True Nature Botanicals also has the Everyday Sheer Coverage Tinted Moisturizer* (30ml), which contains 56% of organic ingredients, including hydrating green tea, vegetable glycerin, and jojoba oil as well as strong hydrating ingredients such as algae, hyaluronic acid, and coenzyme Q10. This tinted moisturizer comes in two shades: Light Tint and Medium Tint. The shade I have is called Light Tint, which I think is more suitable for medium skin tones rather than light skin tones. Unfortunately, it’s too dark for me, even in summer. Other than that, it’s a great tinted moisturizer – light and easy to apply. Most importantly, it offers SPF20 UVA and UVB protection.
