As you all know, I am now on a natural health mission which includes switching my beauty products to natural based ingredients. I am currently searching to find the best products that also provide the results we are accustomed to without the addition of chemicals. After 8 weeks of trailing different natural alternatives – here is the first batch of great discoveries I have to share with you. Below are my current favourite skin products.
*Forewarning: I love all of the below products and these will all be glowing reviews! I don’t see any point listing products that weren’t amazing.
About: 100% Australian made from all natural and organic ingredients, our formulas are created in small batches using the highest quality phyto-active ingredients designed to hydrate, soothe and rejuvenate your skin.
What a great product! Tan in a can without chemicals – yes! There are many reasons I have previously avoided self tanners, 1. I am extremely pale so I am prone to looking orange, 2. The ‘fake tan feel’ on your skin. (You know the sticky, tacky, can’t wait to wash this off feeling)!! 3. The smell. I have always hated the smell of fake tan and I feel like it stays with you for the first few days, even after you have washed the product off.
Result – A golden tan, pleasant smell and quick drying. The tan wears off naturally and is quickly turning me to a fake tan fanatic!
This is a fabulous natural scrub to prep for tanning and help avoid those nasty dark elbows, knees and ankles. It can be used on body and face and is also suitable for men and women… So ladies, don’t tell your man cos I can guarantee they will steal it.

What I love about this face scrub is that it does exactly what it says! You apply the product to dry skin and massage in with wet hands for a few minutes until the product turns milky and easily washes off. My skin was left soft, exfoliated and not at all dry. The Bean Face Scrub is $29 direct from their online store.
This is a beautiful, hard working moisturiser that is suitable for day or night. I like a little extra moisturise at night so I am using this product for day time, under make up. I’ts non oily and dissipates into skin quickly. Available for $35.
I am a HUGE fan of face oils. This product is light, moisturising and quickly absorbed into the skin. Can be used under a moisturising cream for extra moisture oomph! This oil has been living in my bathroom and used on repeat – can’t get enough! $42
Be Fraiche offers Starter sets so you can easily and affordable try their products to work out what is best for you. These are available in a 3 product pack for $25 or a 4 product pack for $32.
About: MuLondon products are made from pure, natural and, where possible, certified organic ingredients. They contain no unnecessary artificial additives. Instead, pure essential oils and herbal extracts are used to divinely scent and gently and naturally preserve. We stay away from artificial preservatives, emulsifiers or fragrances. Our range is designed for sensitive skin and it will benefit all skin types – from dry, mixed and oily to young, ageing and demanding.
When it comes to cleansers, I love a great foaming product. I like to have very clean skin. On first application, I used way too much! The product is so light and foamy, it’s easy to assume you need a larger quantity. One pump is plenty! The Lavender Foaming Cleanser smells great, thoroughly cleans skin without drying and is great value for money!! Around $24 AU a bottle.
Yet another great product from MuLondon. The texture of this moisturiser is thick like a balm at first but quickly dissipates into your skin with the heat of your fingertips. The product is great for me as a night cream but a little heavy for day wear. On waking my skin is soft, moisturised and not oily at all. Again great value at around $41 AU a pot.
*I am regularly gifted products by the manufacturer for personal use. Rest assured that only my favourite, heavily tested products (on myself and quite often my husband) are featured on my blog. I am under no obligation to review any gifted products but I do so when I find something amazing I want to share. Please email me for any further information.
