Harmonia Botanica Natural Skin Care Review

I am always on the lookout for new products. We are all looking for affordable, quality skin care. It is so important to take care of your skin from a very young age, and you will see the results as you age. I think young women should be taught from their teens how important it is to use good skin care products, and stay out of the sun. I was thrilled when Harmonia Botanica contacted me to see if I wished to sample their skin care line. I hope to give you some information on a few of the products I have been able to use, as well as the ingredients that go into each product. 

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.” Your experience with the product may differ from my own.

Creamy Souffle Cleanser

I really enjoyed this cleanser and thought it was great you could use it on hands and body, as well as face. I am always looking for a good cleanser as this is such an important part of your skin care routine. You did not need alot of this product, and it worked so well, my skin was really soft after using it. The price of $17.99 for 4 ounces makes this a really great deal all around! 

DESCRIPTION

Our gentle 100 % pure foaming cleanser effectively cleanses even the most sensitive and dry skin without stripping. Creamy Souffle Cleanser with invigorating orange flower water is a daily cleanser suitable for all skin types that cleanses and moisturizes the skin for a glowing complexion. Skin is left radiant and fresh.

HOW TO APPLY

Apply a small amount of cleanser to damp skin. Gently massage in with circular movements and rinse with lukewarm water. Follow with Botanical Flower Toner, Elixir and moisturizer suitable for your skin type. Can be used twice daily for oilier complexions. Suitable for face, hands and body.

Bath Oil

I really loved this bath oil as liked it for soaking my Mom's and my own feet, I like to give Mom some treatments to make her feel better. The smell of this oil was wonderful, not too strong, but very refreshing. Soaking in it was real heaven, I would imagine doing this in a whole bath would be sublime! This has a fabulous price point as well, $34.99 for 4 ounces. You do not need alot of the product, so it will go a long way. 
DESCRIPTION

Bath Oil — with 100% pure plant extracts, including pine needle, mandarin, sweet orange, juniper berry, and vanilla – eliminates toxins and relaxes. This unique aromatic essence delivers an overall feeling of relaxation, wellbeing and happiness. The delicious aromatic mix of pine needles, citruses, and sweet vanilla is absolutely irresistible. Preservative-free.

KEY INGREDIENTS

• Juniper berry has wonderful cleansing and restoration properties, and helps the body to eliminate toxins.
• Pine needle oil promotes healthy circulation and soothes the discomfort of sore joints and muscles.
• Mandarin oil brings a light, gentle, calming note. Helps to switch off an overactive mind and promote restful sleep.
• Orange oil is known as “smiley oil” and is joyful and warming.  

 

BEAUTY ELIXIR Flora Botanica

This beauty elixir is totally amazing! It left my skin looking so great, very smooth, and just relaxed. Many companies offer this type of product, and it is easy to spend close or more than $100.00 for this size and quality. This comes in at $55.00 for 1 ounce, and will last you quite a while. Just a little goes a long way, and since my Dad's Mom was named Rose, I love the fact it incorporates "the queen of flowers" in it's ingredients! 
DESCRIPTION

Our Essential Beauty Elixirs are 100% pure and formulated to target specific skin concerns. They deeply penetrate upon application to moisturize and relax the skin, provide immediate radiance, and increase the effectiveness of your favorite moisturizers. Flora Botanica penetrates deeply to firm and lift the skin. Especially suitable for dry and mature skin types that lack vitality. It is also recommended for young and normal skin types to prevent aging.
Flora Botanica’s beautiful Rose Absolute, Patchouli, Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Frankincense evoke a sensual and exotic floral fragrance that will delight your senses.

HOW TO APPLY

Morning and evening, put a few drops in your hands. Rub them together and pat onto your face, neck and décolleté area pressing in with fingertips and finishing with light sweeping strokes. Follow with your favorite moisturizer.

KEY INGREDIENTS

• Rose has often been described as "the queen of flowers".  Rose immediately boosts radiance. 
• Frankinsense helps rejuvenate skin tone and prevent wrinkles.
• Neroli invigorates and restores vitality. 

Baume De Rose Lip Balm

I gave this totally to my Mom as her lips were getting so dry since she has been home from the hospital. She really has enjoyed using the product, and says her lips feel so smooth. It is a very soothing balm as well, and she liked that it came with a little scoop to put the product on as well. This will last a long time, and again, not alot is needed. This product runs $16.50 for 0.67 ounces. The smell is not very strong, but just nice enough for you to enjoy. 
DESCRIPTION

This luxuriously rich lip balm with rose oil nourishes, softens and plumps up your lips. Helps heal very dry lips. This unique formula is 100 % natural. The secret of beautiful lips.


KEY INGREDIENTS

• Enriched with precious Rose Absolute Oil with delicate rose fragrance.
• Soybean lipids repair chapped lips, hydrate and regenerate.
• Three ultra effective waxes protect and add gloss.
• Vitamin E nourishes and regenerates.

Shi Divine Nourishing Cream

I have to totally agree with Harmonia Botanica that Shea butter is amazing. I have experienced it in other products, and it really makes such a difference in the quality. To have a face cream, with shea butter, is just unbelievable! I have not tried this on my face, but when I did, it was really so wonderful. This product retails for $42.50 for 1.7 ounces. 
DESCRIPTION

Shea Butter is known as “women’s gold” and has been used for centuries as a natural balm because it deeply moisturizes and protects even the driest complexions. Shi Divine immediately moisturizes, smoothes dehydration lines and prevents tightness. It provides 24-hour hydration and protection against harsh weather and environmental conditions. The result: glowing, baby smooth, protected complexion. Recommended for normal, dry and extremely dry skin types.

HOW TO APPLY

Warm a small amount of Shi Divine between your fingertips to activate its ingredients. Gently pat onto perfectly clean and slightly damp skin. Apply to your face, neck and décolleté area. Instantly feel nourishing effect of Shi Divine. Apply morning and evening.

KEY INGREDIENTS

• Shea Butter relieves dry skin, smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, evens out skin tone, and restores natural elasticity of your skin.
• Grape Seed Oil - rich in antioxidants and oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes – helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles, moisturizes and evens out skin tone.
• Sweet Almond Oil - rich in minerals, vitamins and proteins – softens, revitalizes and nourishes.


My skin looks great from using the products in this line, and you do not have to shell out tons of dollars to do so. I would suggest that you try one product, and see how you like it, and how your skin responds to it. Then you can add others a bit at a time. The one product they have which sounds excellent is Lustrous Locks Leave-In Hair Oil as I would think it would really give some nutrients to your hair. It would be great for those like myself who color their hair, as would keep it looking healthy and shiny. Please let me know if you give this line a try, I would love to know how you like it! I do not think anything here can disappoint anyone, products made with natural ingredients at an affordable price is a win for everyone!!
