I Heart HHN!

First of all, let me apologize for my long absence. I know that it’s a cliché but I just had to let blogging take the backseat to life. I hope you will bear with me though.
Last week, I was finally able to try some of the products of Human Heart Nature, an organic line that had so many bloggers raving. Luckily, I have a colleague whose friend is an HHN reseller so ordering was a breeze.

Here are pics of the items I got.

I haven’t used them long enough to be able to make an in-depth review of each but here are my initial thoughts about them:

Organic Cleanser and Makeup Remover – This is a great makeup remover and leaves my skin soft and uber clean. It seems a little runny though but this should not be a problem since it’s fairly easy to spread on the face. It does not easily remove waterproof mascara though (for this, I use the sunflower oil).
Tomato and Lemongrass Facial Wash – Leaves my face squeaky clean but I don’t like that it does not lather or create that soapy foam that I want in my facial cleansers.

Tomato and Lemongrass Toner – Better IMO than Dickinson’s Witch Hazel Toner. It’s true what other bloggers say about its smell but I find it less offensive than the latter. Absolutely no stings when applied and leaves my skin glowing.

Feminine Cleanser – I absolutely love this. Better than Lactacyd, PH Care or Summer’s Eve IMO. It leaves me with a fresh, clean feeling every time I use it.

Sunflower Oil – HHN claims that this can whiten darker areas and is said to be good at ridding dark circles. I haven’t seen its effect though (well I haven’t used it long enough pa). I find this effectve at removing waterproof mascara though.

Lip Balms – So-so but considering how cheap they are, it’s not a heartbreaker.

Aside from being effective and skin- and environment- friendly, Human Heart Nature products are cheaper than other local organic brands that I know. I got all of these at less than Php 500 (I was given a generous discount by the seller).

Thanks for your time readers :) Hope you find this post useful.
