I was recently sent samples of a new skin care range to try by a new Australian natural skincare company called, Herbs and Heart. Herbs and Heart created their skin care lines through a desire to have less chemicals and more transparency in skincare. Inspired by the green foods movement, Herbs and Heart, realise the raw benefits of green ingredients and have formulated a two-step skincare regiment using natural and ethically-sourced green foods to feed and nourish the face.
Green foods have been shown to contain high counts of antioxidants, including vitamins A, C and E, and can serve as an effective detox system, particularly when consumed in the morning before the body is subject to environmental and lifestyle stressors.
Advocates for ‘sophisticated simplification’, the Herbs and Heart Elixir is considered a morning serum staple by awakening tired skin, enriching it with antioxidants and vitamins, and providing an instant glow. Unique to other serums on the market, this dose of nutrients glides onto skin smoothly and is instantly absorbed. Containing green coffee bean enzymes, avocado fatty acids, and moisture-balancing jasmine, this unparalleled concoction promises to fight free radical damage, relieve puffiness and minor pigmentation, stimulate elastin and add hydration. With a matte finish effect, the Elixir also contains gold mica which manifests in a naturally radiant, glowing complexion. The Elixir is like a coffee for your face. This gives me a little wake up boost each morning. I love it.
Continuing with the concept of 'food for the skin’, the Herbs and Heart Aloe Whip moisturiser is whipped to a smooth consistency for a silky application. Containing naturally occurring aloe, the moisturiser provides a solid base for vitamins C and E, including beta carotene, to improve the skin’s firmness and hydration. The inclusion of oats not only gives the moisturiser a delicious vanilla muesli scent, but serves as a protective film; fortifying the skin’s natural UV barrier and sealing in moisture. In turn, this allow the serum and other active ingredients to deeply penetrate and continually nourish the skin throughout the day. The Alice Springs air sucks the moisture out of your skin. It’s essential that your skin starts the day fully hydrated. The Aloe Whip comes to the party on this. It goes on light and keeps your skin soft and dewy all day.
Herbs and Heart are cruelty-free and use only the finest of locally sourced ingredients, you can purchase online at: www.herbsandheart.com, and retails from $28 RRP. I was sent samples of these products but all opinions are my own. I loved them and you will too.
