Many beauty bloggers might say that Human Nature (or Human Heart Nature) products are a hit or miss thing. I continue patronizing them for three main reasons: 1) they’re organic, 2) they’re cheap and 3) they’re a local business that helps keep workers from Gawad Kalinga employed. You may notice that these reasons don’t cite anything about quality of product. As I said, HN has hits and misses, but for me, they have more than enough hits to keep me satisfied.
Consider this night moisturizer one of their biggest hits yet, in my opinion.
I never really got the concept of a moisturizer formulated for nighttime use until I tried Human Nature’s Night Moisturizer Royal Jelly & Aloe Vera. I’ve tried water-based/oil-free moisturizers with really light formulation and those without SPF since it’s not needed. Note that I have oily-combination skin. I usually woke up with a face greasy from sleep, but I thought that was natural and unavoidable.
Not so with this one. I was pleasantly surprised when I woke up with just soft skin and a face that was almost grease-free. The only exception was my nose part, but that’s always oily with me. It wasn’t even as oily as usual after using this product, so I consider this a success. I didn’t expect it at all, because the moisturizer was really thick and dense, and it was kind of heavy on my face upon first application. It was absorbed by my skin after a while, though, so I didn’t mind it at all afterward. If you’re really oily though, you might want to take note of this.
For those who dislike scents on their moisturizer, this one smells like royal jelly. It’s not irritating to me at all, and it’s not a strong smell anyway. WARNING: some people may not take kindly to royal jelly (patch test first!), but for those who are, you’re in luck! This particular ingredient has a lot of amino acids and nutrients that are good for our skin (and body in general, which is why some people eat it. Royal jelly, that is, not this moisturizer). It’s rich, and perfect for night time because that’s when skin recuperates best.
Will I repurchase? Definitely! It’s P99.75 for a 50ml tube, and that’s cheap. For the US market, it’s $6.99. There’s nothing I don’t like about this product. It even comes in a sanitary tube.
Will I try other night moisturizers? Maybe. But being organic, cheap AND effective, this is going to be very hard to beat. To make me switch, the next product will need to be all three and more.
It’s also available to buyers from the USA. Look for your nearest dealer or shop online.
