I was over the moon to try out True Nature Botanicals! I had heard so much about this line, I couldn't wait to see what all the hype was about. I was not disappointed. When I think of TNB what sticks out to me is a luxe anti-aging line. Using the most potent ingredients, TNB spares no expense when it comes to creating their products. I love this quote on their website:
“Serious luxury. Superior results. No toxins. Not ever.”
They care about quality and seeing products that actually perform, while at the same time are safe. A truly unique company in the green beauty industry. The scents of their products are some of the best. Nothing is too strong but smells fresh and real. I also love how they do clinical tests on their products. Something that is rare among the natural skincare industry. Proven results, with clean ingredients-what more could you want? Oh and I can't forget to mention that all their products come in frosted glass bottles, can you say luxurious? Not only do they make skincare products but also a shampoo and conditioner and even a perfume solid. I tried out the shampoo and conditioner and let's just say it's quickly become a staple in my shower!
Ok, on to the product review.
This cleanser is remarkable. It is hydrating but not greasy and gives just the right amount of emulsification. It foams a little and leaves my skin feeling polished and clean. It comes with a pump, which I love. Great for those who want a squeaky clean feeling but don't want their skin feeling stripped. $48
This oil smells so good! It oil uses coveted marine ingredients, which aids in moisture and smooths wrinkles. I would apply this after using their toning mist, and before the Topical C Treatment and Night Serum with Retinol. It's different than most skincare protocols. Usually you would apply the treatment first, then the oils but with TNB you do the opposite. I applied a few drops in my hands and would press it into my skin. It left my skin hydrated and smooth. The biggest thing I noticed with this serum was it's calming properties. My redness was minimized and my face seemed clearer. This is an all around great face oil. If you're wanting something to not only moisturize, but also to combat signs of aging, this is it. $110
This stuff smells like a dream. So fresh and not overly flowery at all. This mist is so versatile. I used it after cleansing and before serums, and also throughout the day to plump up my skin. One thing I really love about the mist is the fact it doesn't contain any water! The first ingredient is green tea, a soothing and calming ingredient. I love that it comes in a glass bottle as I mentioned above. You won't go wrong with this one-it's a winner. Did I mention the smell? Oh yeah, I did…it's that good! $48
I was probably the most excited to try this duo out. My fellow blogger friend Molly from MaisonPur had reviewed TNB in the early fall, and had a hard time working with the product initially(I would have been the same). However, after some trial and error she discovered how to apply the product. It was great to read her review because it helped me in my application process(thanks Molls :). Let me first explain the Topical C Treatment. It actually comes in small little capsules. You break open a capsule and then apply a few drops of the Night Serum with Retinol and rub your hands vigorously together. Don't be gentle! Then apply it to your skin. The Night Serum with Retinol isn't an oil but a treatment serum, it doesn't necessarily moisturize your skin. I would use this by itself without the Vitamin C Treatment too. The power of both really makes your skin take on a whole new look. I noticed my skin texture improved, congestion was gone and hyper-pigmentation faded. Originally when talking with Kevin Dooley, Director of Community Relations, I had mentioned wanting to address hyper-pigmentation on my skin. I was so pleased that his recommendation really proved to be true. I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to see texture improvement across the board. $195
Gosh, this stuff is just the best! If you've thought that no natural shampoo and conditioner will work for your hair, think again. The shampoo suds up like a mainstream shampoo, but without the harsh chemicals. The conditioner doesn't leave that greasy oil residue…you know that feeling I'm talking about! Need, I say more? Not really, but I will because I just can't help myself! It smells insanely good, fresh like everything they make does. They also come in recyclable metal bottle pumps, that literally look so luxe in the shower. I promise you won't be disappointed, this stuff is amazing and worth every penny, and that says a lot coming from a stylist. $32 each
Well, that sums up my review of True Nature Botanicals. Want to shop their line? I don't blame you! You can find all their products here. Oh and today through Monday, TNB is offering 15% any order using code: gurlgonegreen…hello! They typically never offer sales like this-so snag it while you can!
