Essential summer skincare
Herbs + Heart’s water based gel-cream formulation, Cell Gel, which retails at $29.99, allows skin to breathe and dissipate excessive heat, whilst also nourishing and helping to restore the skin’s natural hydration barrier.
The repair of the skin is encouraged by neutralising the destructive free radicals via the antioxidant properties of the product’s ingredients.
We found Cell Gel to be light and quick to absorb, yet hydrating and a perfect moisturiser for the summer. Nourishing ingredients include soothing aloe vera, cucumber, orange blossom and rosehip, collectively providing antioxidants, vitamins including B5, C and K as well as silica. Just as important is what is not in these products, being harmful, synthetic fillers and chemicals, such as parabens, sulphates and PEGs.
We love the philosophy of Herbs + Heart, producing not only high quality, organic skin care, derived from local, sustainable sources, but also being cruelty free (no animal testing) and packaged in recyclable glass bottles. These are such important issues and we are proud to help spread the message.
Other products in their range include ‘Face Mud’ (Cleanser, mask and exfoliator); ‘Skin Tonic’ (toner, mist and makeup remover); ‘Aloe Whip’ (skin repairing moisturising cream); ‘Elixir’ (antioxidant rich serum and makeup primer). Head to their website to learn more and read the impressive reviews. We are very tempted by their Christmas packs!
