I was fortunate to be sent a selection of four Healing Earth products from their Pinotage range, to review recently. I’ve been using these products for the past few weeks and here are my thoughts.
Healing Earth Anti-Oxidant Pinotage Cleansing Cream
This is a brightening cream cleanser that nourishes and refreshes the skin, while removing impurities. This cleanser, which reminded me of milk, is smooth but has no foaming ingredients, which personally, I don’t really prefer. I like a cleanser to foam so that it feels like my skin is really being cleaned, but, depending on your skin type, this creamy cleanser may work for you.
Retail price: R252,45
Healing Earth Anti-Oxidant Pinotage Facial Polish
This is a gentle exfoliating cream with rounded crushed grape seeds, which remove dead skin and impurities. Because I have rather dry skin, I found that this was a little too harsh for my skin type, and like most exfoliators with beads or seeds, it can be a little uncomfortable using it on your face for the first few times.
Retail price: R364,65
Healing Earth Anti-Oxidant Pinotage Facial Toner
This is a hydrating and refreshing toner that enhances the skin’s natural protection. Out of the 4 products received, this was my second favourite, mainly because it really felt refreshing, spritzing it onto my skin, especially in the heat waves that Gauteng has been experiencing recently. The spray nozzle is really useful for this purpose, and I now think that all toners should have a spritzing nozzle.
Retail price: R243,10
Healing Earth Jasmin and Boabab Stimulating Facial Serum
This serum felt nourishing in the sense that my dry skin really absorbed it well and I could see the difference after application, as there was less flaky skin and that dryness I usually feel after cleansing was gone. You warm two or three drops of the serum in your hands and then apply to a cleansed face, neck and décolletage, followed by your daily moisturizer. By far, this was my favourite product out of the 4 received because the oil based serum is truly nourishing.
Retail price: R542,30
The Healing Earth Pinotage range draws on the power of the proudly South African Pinotage grape cultivar, which provides the highest quality of cold-pressed oil extracts high in anti-oxidants, minerals, omegas and polyphenols. The Pinotage products combine the strong anti-oxidant qualities of Vitamin C and Vitamin E from the grape seed, skin and the leaves of the vine to provide the skin with a natural defence against harmful environmental factors such as the sun’s UV rays, cigarette smoke, alcohol consumption, drug intake, dietary fat and stress.
