NATURAL SKINCARE

A Look At Natural Skincare!

Coconut Body Polish 150gm
I am so good when it comes to completely cleansing my body head to toe each day in the shower,
however honestly I don't often use a body polish or scrub as I just own a bundle more cleansers and
so that is what I reach for most often. In saying that I do notice the build up of dead and hardened
skin when I leave it go too long and my skin can begin to appear dull and less than smooth.

This Coconut Body Polish smells EXACTLY like a day spa! All natural and super relaxing!
Contains - Epsom Salt, Virgin Coconut Oil, Australian Pink Clay, Dried Rose Buds, Dried
Calendula Flowers, Sweet Orange Essential Oil & Rose Geranium Essential Oil.

How cute and handy is the little scoop in the jar?! I have been using between 3-5 scoops per shower
depending on how much I feel I need that day. This leaves your skin smelling gorgeous and I love
the soft feeling from the moisturising coconut oil and smoothness from the other ingredients blended
together. I don't even have to bother moisturising afterwards as it has all been taken care of in this
polish, clever little guy!

Gentle Facial Scrub 70gm
I love facial scrubs and always notice a significant difference every time I use one! Somehow I find
my skin tends to build up more on my face than on my body, that I notice anyway! So regular facial
scrubbing is a must for me otherwise the surface of my skin becomes rough, super dull and tends to
break out more frequently with blackheads being more noticeable than usual. Ew!

What I like most about this all natural, all Aussie made Gentle Facial Scrub is it's unique dry blend of
ingredients. These include - Powdered Goats Milk, Ground Oatmeal, Sodium Bicarbonate, Ground
Calendula Petals, Folic Acid & Olive Leaf Extract.

So you may be wondering how to use a dry facial scrub as opposed to a wet one? Well it's actually
really simple and you can even mix in pretty much any wet mix you like to suit you own personal
flavour. Harvest Garden recommends using water, honey, floral water or apple cider vinegar. I
personally find just using water to be the most convenient, however I have also tried using Manuka
Honey which is nice and thick and makes it really easy to apply.

I also have tons of Aloe vera growing in my back yard which I haven't tried mixing in with this yet,
however I am thinking about it as I figure it would feel quite soothing and add to the lovely natural
scent!

Intensive Facial Cream 60gm
This Intensive Facial Cream can be used both day and night, however as it is rich in intensive hard
working skin loving ingredients it is recommended to use more as a night cream for best results as
our skin works it's hardest healing the skin and regenerating new cells as we sleep.

This smooth light, whipped, creamy blend smells divine and is a dream on the skin with ingredients
including - Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E, Green Tea Extract, Lavender Essential Oil, Rose
Geranium Essential Oil & Patchouli Essential Oils.

Like many other Harvest Garden products you will find your own little scoop inside to use to scoop
out your product to minimise contamination and prolong the life of the product.

With the weather being so hot lately (I am sure many of you can relate!) sometimes Harvest Garden
products can melt a little as they aren't bound together nor contain with any toxic chemicals, synthetic
fragrances, artificial colours, parabens or palm oil. However popping then into the fridge will quickly
being then back up to a less runny consistency. :)

Herbal Balm 110gm
This Herbal Balm is one of those clever little must have multi-use products which come in handy for
the whole family for different reasons and you find yourself thanking your lucky stars you own it at
times when you need it the most.

With a solid melt in your hands creamy natural oil based consistency this balm does a whole
multitude of things including healing the skin from nappy rash, minor burns, scabs, dry skin, minor
cuts and grazes as well as dry chapped lips!


Ingredients include a blend of all 100% natural Australian Virgin Coconut Oil, Calendula Infused
Olive Oil, Calendula Infused Sweet Almond Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Beeswax and
Vitamin E.

I have been using this mainly as a dry skin and chapped lips moisturiser and even used it on my son's
cheeky little butt-butt with no irritation or flare ups. This stuff is so gentle to even baby's skin!
I have found this to also deeply moisturise the dry brittle ends of my hair, so really you can go to
town experimenting with what works for you with this multi-use product. I highly recommend
having a jar in the house. I keep mine in the fridge as it gives an ultra cooling effect to the skin this
way and feels super refreshing on hot days like the ones we've been having lately!
