Living Nature - review and giveaway!

I love natural products so much; I think they're the bee's knees. Most of you may recall I started my quest towards using products with natural ingredients last year. Well, the journey continues in 2013 and in the past few weeks, I have had the pleasure of trialing Living Nature's 100% natural skincare products that utilises the healing power of New Zealand's native botanicals as such Active Manuka honey made by bees from the native New Zealand Manuka flowers.

My skin is dry, so I opted for the skin essentials pack for dry skin, which included the vitalising cleanser, toning gel, and nourishing day cream. The vitalising cleanser was extremely gentle on my skin without the sticky creamy feel, in fact it is so light, the sceptic in me decided I had to double cleanse at the end of the day to properly remove all traces of makeup and dirt. Even then, my skin did not once feel tight after cleansing which is a tick for me.

For many years, I'd been foregoing toner and going straight from cleansing to moisturising. But in the last few weeks, I have been conscientiously using the extra hydating toning gel which is an alcohol free gel that I rub between my palms before applying to my skin. My skin actually did love this extra bit of hydration and drew the moisture right in. Lastly, I apply the nourishing day cream all over my face and neck. It is quite rich so a little goes a long way; it feels nice on the skin and moisturises without any stickiness and oiliness. I thought it was so great, I even use this day cream at night (such a rebel, I know).
The lovely people at Living Nature would like to give one lucky reader the opportunity to try their skin essentials pack (for normal skin) which is a handy travel pack retailing for $55, pictured above. For your chance to win, simply tell me as a comment on this post, why you would like to try Living Nature's products. You get 1 extra point if you 'like' my Facebook Page, plus another extra point if you follow Under Lock and Key on GFC. Just let me know when you have done either or both.

Giveaway ends on Friday 8 March, 5pm EST and is open internationally. Good luck!

Update: And the winner is Natalie G...congrats! Thank you all for playing.

Latrina said...

I have been looking for all-natural products like this for awhile now... I work at a coffee shop and you'd be completely amazed at how badly my skin can get. I suppose it's from all the oils from the coffee.

If I win -- then awesome! But even if I don't, I will surely purchase some of their products. Thank you for sharing this, Trishie!

P.s. I am already following you on Fb. :)

As we grow older, we also try to find what is best for our skin.

I would love to win so that I could gift this pack to a wonderful single mum I know. Her child is disabled and she battles with extra expenses related to her child's disability. She sure could use some pampering right about now :-)

Great review Trishie!

BIKBIK AND RORO said...

I'm attracted to natural, gentle skin products, especially since I have sensitive, "mature" skin -- this range definitely looks like something worth trying! Thank you for hosting this giveaway :)

Arni @ Travel Gourmande said...

Megan Price said...

I would love to try these out! I make a point of only using very mild, natural products on my skin from make-up to cleanser to hair care. I find the products loaded with chemicals at the supermarket irritate my skin too much! This looks like a lovely brand :-) I will pop over to follow your Facebook page - I would have sooner if I'd known lol! And I will also share this on Twitter!

I would love to try these because I have sensitive skin and need very natural products. I am unfortunately running out of all of my current favorites in my skincare routine and am looking to test more affordable products.

I saw on their site that they don't test on animals. I'm against vivisection and always on the hunt for new non tested natural products, so I definitely want to try this ones!
I'm following you on gfc and liked your Fb page. Good luck to me!!

Kelsey Price said...

I would love to try them - they look lovely! And as I only us all natural products (cosmetics, skin care, hair car etc) I find it quit difficult to find good quality chemical free brands that still offer a good product. I've just followed you on Facebook & GFC :-) xx

I must admit that I've never purchased natural cosmetics or other skin products.. So I'd love to try these - and it would be about time to shift to all-natural products. :)

I would love to try anything product that is all natural! I follow on GFC!

Connie said...

simply using honey, natural yogurt, olive oil, etc. are also good homemade natural beauty remedies! :DD but can end up in the mess though :)

sometimes, i still find it hard to believe that products sold out there are 100% natural, bc i always think "why don't we then simply use the things in our fridge?" XD

look see said...

I'm looking for some new skincare at the moment. I've always gone with the supermarket brands, but now that I'm getting a little older (and have a bit more cash to spend), I'd love to find something that's natural and gentle on my skin. Would love to give these products a try!

I would love to try this product line as my skin is dry and I can never find a great natural remedy for it! Looks quite amazing.

Szappanbubi said...

LOVE and respect beauty products which made of natural ingredients as you can immediately feel the difference on your skin compared to a more synthetic one! LOVE to try them as I need to take care of my facial skin right now between the cold winter and warmer spring transition :)

I would love to try Living Nature's products because I am still searching for a range of affordable all natural skin care that works for me. So many all natural skin care are just too pricey. Being able to win this will be a huge bonus. :)

I would love the opportunity to try LN's products because I am keen to fully shift away from all beauty products that have *nasties* in them. Also, having a hard time finding them down in Chch since it broke.

kathy @ vodka and soda said...

i LOVE all natural products too. since switching, my skin is less dry and sensitive. my all-time favorite weapon against dry skin: organic argan oil. this has simplified my skin routine (went from 5 products to hydrate my skin to only 3) and eliminated the fine lines around my eyes!
