After my first encounter, I became a big fan of Human Nature for many reasons: they’re chemical-free, they give back to the community and the products are reasonably (or affordably) priced!
I was ecstatic to learn that Human Nature added a new creation with a hint of luxury into their skincare line – Human Nature Overnight Elixir. Oh well, just because… I turned 31 last Friday!
Oh well, as they say… life begins at 30! In a way, that saying is true. While many waste their twenties away, they woke up in their thirties with a different perspective of life. It seems to be a new beginning for them – a beginning to love and care for themselves, the beginning to preserve this ageing body – for healthier and perhaps, longer decades ahead.
Ageing does not stop and it definitely will not go any slower, especially with today’s lifestyle, environment conditions, food choices and the list gets longer with each passing day.
Yup, that’s why I was excited to try the chemical-free Human Nature Overnight Elixir, made from a combination of nine therapeutic oils including elemi (pili), lavender essential oil, passion fruit seed, rosehip, rosemary extract, soybean, sunflower, organic avocado and rosemary essential oil.
Just the thought of having to buy all these different pure botanical active oils gives me a shudder. Thankfully, they are all-packed for convenience into the potent Overnight Elixir.
I’m a normal-to-combination skin kinda person – oily on the T-zone and my cheeks area get dry in the day as I work in an air-conditioning environment. Sometimes, my nose area gets too dry and it gets flaky but a oil/cream base moisturiser is too rich that it makes my T-zone shine like a mirror reflection, or when applied at night, I’ll get breakouts the next morning!
Down to Earth was generous enough to provide me 3 vials to try. They didn’t just send the Human Nature Overnight Elixir to my doorstep, included in the package were a 50ml All-Natural Purifying Strawberry Facial Scrub and two All-Natural Tinted Lip Balms in Island Kiss and Pink Orchid. Stay tuned for reviews on the scrub and lip balms later on.
In the first week, I started with daily night application after cleansing and toning, and a few pimples popped on my forehead, cheeks and chin. I understand that different skin types will respond to natural oils differently. So I made the adjustment to applying the Overnight Elixir on alternate nights. Voila, after 3 weeks, my skin is softer and smoother. The dark spot on my left cheek was noticeably lightened and my pores were also less prominent.
Although I read a of lot reviews on how the Elixir can improve the skin’s resistance against breakouts, I still have occasional (but very rare) pimples due to stress, dehydration or pollution. But overall, I'd love to add the Elixir in my beauty regime.
For a person who has never invested in any serum for the past 30 decades, the 30ml Human Nature Overnight Elixir at RM129.90 is reasonably priced, minus all the harmful chemicals! But if you want to try it out without forking out your money first, Down To Earth wants to reward TWO of my readers with a full-sized 30ml Human Nature Overnight Elixir each!
