Where I got this: I was sent these products to try and review (thank you Plantæ). These products are available on their website or a few selected stockist which can be found here.  Product ranges from $27.90 to $79.90.

What I got: I got some Plantæ skincare from two of their ranges. The purify range is perfect for combination/oily skin: Purify Lemon Oil-Control Cleansing Gel, Purify Wild Thyme Oil-Regulating Toner and Purify Watercress Light Day Lotion.

How I find it: I will review these individually.
Purify Lemon Oil-Control Cleansing Gel $34.90: Its blend of botanicals stimulates microcirculation and helps prevent acne by regulating oil flow. Its powerful anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties, combined with organic extracts like Lemon, Ivy and Quillaja Saponaria are carefully chosen to leave skin feeling cleansed and refreshed. 95.50% of all ingredients have a natural origin from which 95% are produced by organic farming. This gel cleanser is quite fluid and has a light brown tint. I use 3 pumps on my palm, work it into a light lather then massage onto my face. It washes off very easy without feeling sticky or greasy. Cleanses very well, but doesn’t immediately leave the skin dry and tight. The only thing I would comment is the strong lemon oil scent, which can be overwhelming for some people.

Purify Wild Thyme Oil-Regulating toner $27.90: The expertly created synergistic blend includes organic Wild Thyme Honey, a powerful anti-oxidant, with Lemon, Sage and Ivy chosen for their astringent and micro-circulatory properties. It purifies the skin, tightens the pores and helps minimise blackheads99.7% of all ingredients have a natural origin from which 97.7% are produced by organic farming. This toner is really refreshing and light, it is not highly astringent which is what I prefer so that it won’t irritate my skin. It does hydrate my face before I use the day lotion.

Purify Watercress Light Day Lotion $44.90: This light, cooling moisture lotion contains Watercress, Burdock, and Lemon. It also includes Black Cumin – a super-critical extract, and Jojoba Seed, brilliant for oil-control as it contains all natural forms of the anti-oxidant Vitamin E. Totarol™ from the native New Zealand Podocarpus Totara tree helps to prevent acne and skin blemishes. The day lotion is rather light and fluid and that is great for oily/combination skin! Upon application, the lotion is absorbed quickly and leaves the skin feeling smooth with a soft matte finish (not too mattifying, but looks really natural). The lotion is lightly scented leaving my skin feeling refreshed and clean.

Overall: I personally prefer this range over the Balance range. All of the scent and texture in this range is really lovely on my skin. Cleanses well and the day lotion gives just the right amount of moisture to oily skin. This range is great for combination to oily skin.
