(L-R: All Natural Hand Sanitizer, All Natural Mositurizing Night Cream, Sunflower Beauty Oil, Night Mositurizer with Royal Jelly and Aloe Vera, Balancing Face Toner, Hand and Foot Salve)
About three years ago, organic products were quite difficult to find in the Philippines and the ones available are mostly foreign brands with pricy products. Luckily enough, there's been a strong "going green" movement and companies started creating products that satisfied this need.
Enter Human Nature, maker of locally-made, organic products that do not have any trace of synthetic and harmful ingredients. "Only the good", as their tagline claims. They have a whole range of products, from hair care to skin care to baby care to make up.
So when Human Nature opened shop here in Iloilo last year, I wasted no time in signing up to be a dealer, which gets me a 10% discount with every purchase. I got to try a variety of products because there was a minimum initial purchase requirement to be made. Although I was happy with most of my loot, some of them were quite disappointing (but that's just me, products that didn't work so well for me might work better on others).
So I've compiled a list of my favorite Human Nature products which I really love. I'm calling it my Human Nature Hit List. Will do a post on the misses next time. :)
1. Human Nature All Natural Spray Sanitizer Citrus Burst (Php 67)
Keep harmful bacteria at bay without drying out your hands with our all natural spray sanitizer. This handy spray formulation is also perfect for toys, hard surfaces and potty seats.
Cute packaging, smells nice, and very handy. Doesn't dry out my hands, and I also use it on a lot of other stuff too. This is also a staple in my make up case; I use it to disinfect brushes in between clients.
2. 100% Natural Moisturizing Night Cream with Plant Collagen (Php 149)
Skincare magic while you sleep! Plant collagen casts a spell for enchantingly renewed skin by morning.
I've tried this baby for two weeks, and although I do wake up with a bright complexion and a well-rested look, closer inspection of my skin revealed larger-looking pores on my cheeks :| The consistency is also a bit more runny than it's predecessor(will be featured in part 2 of this post) and it just has this weird smell that I absolutely cannot stand when it's on my face. So why did this still make my list? Well, I don't really like throwing out stuff away so I usually find other ways to use them. I've been using this as a moisturizer for my hands, elbows, knees and other areas that might need more moisturizing. It does a good job of keeping my skin soft.
3. Sunflower Seed Beauty Oil (Php 129)
Do you believe in miracles? Feel the years fall away as your premium beauty oil caress the tired skin under and around your eyes, helping minimize dark circles, remove fine lines and smooth out wrinkles with every gliding touch.
Of all their products, this one is my absolute favorite. Good things most definitely come in small packages! I love this multi-purpose oil, I've found it very useful as a make up remover, under eye moisturizer, scar remover, nail and hair treatment. It's like petroleum jelly, only much better and less harmful.
Not in Picture (because I already ran out and I haven't restocked yet hehe)
4. Citronella Bug Spray
Shoo off mosquitoes and other pesky bugs with an effective, organic antidote. With natural skin moisturizers your skin will thank you for it!
After seeing that feature on how toxic those anti-mosquito lotions out there on the market are, I immediately sought out natural alternatives to keep away bugs. And this one really delivers! I love that it comes in a pump, I like the citrusy scent, I like that the size is also travel-friendly. Very affordable too, and goes the extra mile of mosturizing your skin while shooing away the mosquitoes.
5. Natural Lip Balm in Peppermint (Php 69)
Experience the smoother, softer glide and the mouth-watering natural flavors that will surely keep you reaching for your lip balm again and again...and again!My verdict:
Keeps my lips soft and I like the minty feeling from the peppermint variant.
This is it for Part 1. Part 2 will be posted tomorrow, so stay tuned!
