Review: Natural Instinct facial products

 natural-instinct2

I have been using a couple of the Natural Instinct products for my face. They are an Australian made natural skin and hair care brand, which are formulated with botanically-derived ingredients, certified organic extracts and pure essential oils. There are no nasties in their products, so they are grey-water safe, and products are not tested on animals.

Daily mosituriser – sinks in nicely, and is not greasy like some. It smells of jojoba and rosehips, and contain B5.

Facial scrub – the right texture and is not too grainy. My face felt clean afterwards and it contains jojoba and walnut.

Foaming and cream cleanser – Both satisfying products. The foaming cleanser lathers to a light foam and is scented with lavender and rosehip. The cream cleanser is scented with jojoba and witch hazel.

Clarifying toner – left my face toned and finished. It smells citrusy and refreshing of rosewater, witch hazel and orange flower.

What I like about these products all the products are free of sulphates, petrochemicals, parabens, PEGs and mineral oils. There are also no artificial colours or fragrances.

Thank you Natural Instinct for allowing me to trial these products. 

Gingerbread scented scrub

gingerbread-scrub

This gingerbread scented scrub makes a great last minute present for Christmas. If like me, you’ll be able to find all the ingredients in your cupboards so you won’t need to buy anything. I used recycled tomato paste jars, and the amount fills five of them easily.

The label is from Raining Hot coupons. They use a different recipe from the one below and it is based on sugar and coconut oil. Perhaps I’ll try it next year.

I’ve used Herbie’s Spices sweet quatre epices, which is made up of a traditional combination of spices based on classic French cuisine. If you don’t have this one, just make up 1 teaspoon of each of the following spices: allspice, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon.

Gingerbread scented scrub recipe

2 cups of salt
1 cup of epsom salts
4 tsps of quatre epices
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond essence

  1. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix thoroughly together.
  2. Label recycled jars or containers and fill with mixture.

Thank you Herbie’s Spices for the spice sample.
