Elemental Herbology ‘Soothing Oil Free Hydrator’ Review


~ ~ ~

Price: This was a sample with another purchase and I cannot find an Australian price for this product.  Other items in the Elemental Herbology range are available from Mecca Cosmetica

Score: ♥♥♥

Product Plus:  Oil Free.

Application:   Apply during the day.

Thoughts:  I do have combination skin, but mine is fairly well-behaved in terms of oiliness.  However if I use the wrong product, I definitely get a lot of t-zone oiliness immediately.  I was skeptical because this has SPF, and generally SPF=Oil, but was pleasantly surprised at how light the formula feels .  I only needed a very small amount, so this tiny 5ml sample lasted me nearly two weeks – cool!  It has a creamy-opaque consistency, but smoothes out well.  It does give skin a slight sheen, I believe due to the SPF, but this looks more like a healthy glow than shininess.  Once absorbed it feels really comfortable and I found after a day of use that I didn’t have any more oil in my t-zone than normal.  It has a real herb-like fragrance, and seems legit about being soothing too as my redness didn’t flare up while using this.

Conclusion:  Having never tried Elemental Herbology before, I am quite intrigued and would now try more products by this English brand.  Although it says ‘Ingredients derived from a 100% Natural Source’ after the ingredients list on the back, I cannot figure out if that means all ingredients are included in this, or simply the ones with an asterisk.  The SPF content isn’t a lot by Australian standards but I liked this as it didn’t feel heavy on my skin, and I am hardly in the sun anyway.

I would love other people’s thoughts on this brand so I can see if their other products would be worth a go!

Bon Appetite!
