Okay, so I have a bit of an obsession with finding skincare to nourish my dry skin...
And lately I've been really interested in skincare which uses natural or organic ingredients too. So when I was offered the opportunity to trial some some MyNewSkin Multi-purpose face and body balms, I was intrigued!
Not only is MyNewSkin an Australian brand (located and operated in Queensland), but their balms are made from completely natural and chemical free ingredients. The balms are made from plant oils and herb extracts - which are processed within 3 hours of being freshly picked. Is that super fresh or what?
There are currently two balms available - Olive and Lavendar, and Olive and Lemon Myrtle. They're both 100% natural, and both intensively nourish and restore skin. With regular use, they nourish, moisturise, soften, replenish, and refresh dry, ageing, or uneven skin tone.
Each balm is made from 7 types of freshly picked herbs (each with its own targeted skin benefits, plus either Lavender oil or Lemon Myrtle.
|Olive and Lavender, and Olive and Lemon Myrtle|
I personally am loving the Lemon Myrtle variant, because it just smells so darn good. Although slightly herbalish in scent, the main fragrance I get from it is exactly like those hard-boiled lemon candies!
The balms are packaged in tubs with screw top lids - the balm is fairly solid, but melts upon contact with warm fingers. So it's basically like a lip balm or petroleum jelly in texture.

|Spread out - it takes a while to absorb into the skin, but once it does skin feels soft and smooth~|
There's a slight green yellow colour to the balm but it absorbs clear once carefully applied - used as an all over face balm, it is an odd sensation at first as the balm texture feels a bit thick on the skin for several minutes. You definitely do not need a lot, as it spreads easily, and a little goes a long way.
I've been using this as a 'night cream' a few times per week, and although it feels a bit strange to use a balm as an all over face cream at first, due to the oil, my skin seems to really soak it up overnight. My skin is baby skin smooth the next morning - and definitely feels well nourished too.
With regular daily use MyNewSkin claims it can help minimise redness, uneven skin tone, and the effects of ageing skin within about 3 months. I haven't been using it that long yet, so I can't attest to that, but MyNewSkin is so confident in its products, they have a money back guarantee for unsatisfied customers.
Definitely something worth checking out if you're interested in buying local, and buying 100 percent natural skincare products.
