Did you know that our skin is our largest organ and incredibly permeable to what we put on it? Our usual lotions and potions can often contain toxic chemicals, irritants, and allergens that can cause all sorts of bad reactions to happen to our skin and even to our bodies so it’s important to look out for products that use only all natural, preferably organic ingredients that nourish, protect, and enhance our skin’s natural beauty.
I’m always up for fresh new skincare products to try, especially when the company in question sources high quality all natural ingredients. Over the last few years I’ve made it a point to switch out my old go-to skincare products for more effective serums, creams, lotions, scrubs, and hair care that are made with a purpose in mind for sustainability, integrity, and most importantly LOVE.
I’m really happy to have had the opportunity to review a few such products from a company I’ve grown to love over the past 4 weeks; Just Natural. They stand for high quality and are incredibly passionate about what they do. I mean honestly, they hand make and hand label (made from natural inks recycled materials) all of their products so that each bottle has been touched by intention and love! As a result, their products can vary slightly in color, scent, and consistency because they use pure, unadulterated, raw ingredients for each formulation. I’ve really come to appreciate their homemade recipes because unlike other companies these guys are problem solvers! No temporary fixer-uppers here. They are also alcohol, chemical, gluten, sulfate, paraben, and cruelty FREE with no GMO’s. All Just Natural products are also vegan!
Another important aspect of Just Natural is all their products are made in the USA which I support wholeheartedly. Doing this allows for higher paid better quality jobs which in turn means better quality products because they’re made by happier people. Also, choosing more local products helps protect the environment by sourcing local recycled packaging materials and using less fossil fuel to transport them.

I had the opportunity to try some amazing products all of which I loooove. I really can’t live without these and believe me, I’ve tried a lot of different skincare over the years. I just love how natural and balancing these have been for my oily complexion. My mineral make-up also goes on very well over it.
What’s cool too is that these products contain no water, alcohol, silicone, or fillers just natural oils and other ingredients that help to firm, lift, and protect the skin.
Anti-Aging Nutritive Serum (available here)
Ingredients: Avocado Fruit Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Grape Seed Extract, Tamanu Oil, Green Tea Extract, Camellia Seed Oil Milk Thistle Extract , Apricot Kernel Oil, Moringa Extract, Jojoba Oil, Essential Oils of Frankincense Palmarosa, Geranium, Lemongrass, and Vitamin E.
First of all this serum smells fantastic! The aroma is light and slightly floral but definitely not overbearing at all. The essential oils it contains are healing, nutritive, brightening, and helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. I have really noticed my complexion even out in just the 4 weeks I’ve been using it.
You also don’t need a lot of this oil AT ALL. I find that 1-2 drops during the day and 2-3 drops of serum at night is perfect especially after spritzing my face with rose water. The serum quickly absorbs and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and moisturized. It feels wonderful!
You get a 1 fl. oz amber glass bottle that comes with a dropper for application. This serum retails for around $37.99
Anti-Aging Eye Serum (you can buy it here)
Ingredients: Borage Oil, Kiwi Fruit Extract, Carrot Seed Oil, Greet Tea Extract, Camellia Oil, Rose Apple Leaf Extract, Avocado Fruit Oil, Calendula Oil, Sweet Orange Blossom Hydrosol, Vitamin E.
This is such a restorative oil! My eye area feels so refreshed, revitalized, and renewed after using this eye serum. Even the act of putting it on helps de-puff the eye area. I use it morning and night to help keep my eyes looking fresh and to prevent fine lines. I find that it also helps prevent my concealer from looking greasy or flaky.
You only need 1 drop of this amazing serum to get the job done.
You get a 1 fl. oz amber glass bottle that comes with a dropper for application. This serum retails for around $39.99
I’m really excited that I got to try out these amazing products! I love the fact that they don’t contain the chemicals and toxins I’m trying to avoid in my skincare, they contain ingredients I can be satisfied with because I know that they come from clean and organic sources.
