I’m on my third day of using both products, so by now, I should be able to give a decent review.
I’m always on the look out for good lotions and moisturizers as I have very dry skin.
I have found my HG body lotion with Aveeno Moisturizing Lotion (thank the beauty gods) but I have yet to find my HG facial moisturizer. I tried using Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer thinking that since the Aveeno body lotion worked for me, the facial moisturizers should work as well.
Turns out it didn’t work that way. My face got really itchy after an hour of using the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer. Boo.
I felt so bad about spending Php700+ on a product that I was just going to throw away that I vowed to look for the most affordable, yet good facial moisturizer out there.
I started taking a look at local brands. I tried Celeteque, but it didn’t moisturize my face enough and I got white heads after a week of use.
I tried Myra E Facial Moisturizer next. So far, it’s been working for me. I’m not that satisfied with the moisturizing power, though. Sometimes, on a really bad day, my face gets really flaky. But no break outs, no allergies and it’s cheap so I’ve decided to stick with Myra E.
Until recently, I visited Reluctant Stylista and I saw her post on the Night Moisturizer of Human (Heart) Nature or simply, Human Nature. She was super raving about how soft it made her skin, how it was made of organic ingredients and how ridiculously affordable it was for organic cosmetics.
I thought, “Hey, it’s only around 100 bucks. So if I don’t like the product, it won’t hurt so bad to dispose of.”
Well, what do you know. I hit the jackpot! Human Nature Moisturizers are a WIN!
While Alex only uses the Night Moisturizer, I got both the Day and Night Moisturizer. I was intrigued with the difference of a day moisturizer from a night moisturizer. I didn’t find any difference tho, except for the smell. The Night one had a sweeter scent. Probably because of the royal jelly.
Compared to Myra E, the Human Nature Moisturizers (both Day and Night) are much thicker in consistency. Actually, I find them a little bit too sticky during the application, especially when you start spreading it around your face. I guess this is “heavy feeling” other people are saying about the product. So if ever you do get to try this product out, remember to use only a pea-size amount. It goes a long way.
After it settles on your skin though, the results are amazing. No, really. I’m serious. There’s been no other facial moisturizer out there that has kept my skin this plump and moisturized. And it can last for hours, too!
However, I think using BOTH Day and Night Moisturizer is an over-kill. On the first day, I thought it was fine to use both. But now on the third day, my face is so moisturized that I’m actually getting a bit oily. And that’s saying a lot coming from super dry skin me.
So what I’m going to do is, I’m going to use both Human Nature Moisturizers at night (even the day one), and keep my Myra E Facial Moisturizer as my day moisturizer.
Especially right now with summer just around the corner, a light facial moisturizer is a must.
So will I order Human Nature Moisturizers again? Definitely! The best part is, they have an online shop that accepts credit cards so I don’t have to go out of the house, yay.
I’m thinking of getting their deodorant to try out next. My sister has been preaching about the evils of aluminum in most deodorants and it kind of rubbed off me. And I might get their facial wash, too :)
