When writing a review, I love to read the “about us” section on the brand’s website to find out a little more about the maker and their why. I just love hearing about people’s passions and to see people living their dreams.
The founder, Louise Devine has quite an interesting bio. I was able to learn that Louise moved to Australia in 2006 with her daughter which coincided with her brand, Devine Oils being born.
Without even trying the products, I fell in love immediately with the use of glass to hold the products in rather than plastic – helping reduce their environmental footprint.
Scent is important to me, I really enjoy using products that are scented. Luckily I don’t suffer from irritable skin. I find the range, that uses essential oils gentle on my skin – and they smell great!
All products are made the day before they are sent out, to ensure the products received are at their freshest and most potent. They are also vegan, palm oil free and do not contain parabens.
The below product photos are of the trial size products, however the price quoted is for the full size. Louise does have trial kits available on her website located here;
Palm Oil Free Cream Cleanser – $49.50
As the name suggests the Palm Oil Free Cream Cleanser has a lovely creamy base, with one of the main ingredients noted being Aloe Vera. I like to use this cleanser for my 2nd cleanse, mainly to breathe in the beautiful essential oils of Frankincense and Sweet Fennel.
Light Day Oil and Night Oil Treatment – Detox & Repair, both $44.50
I love, LOVE face oils (second to cleansers ha!) rather than using a moisturiser. I find my skin loves oils, and it especially loved the Night Oil Treatment, with its subtle scent. It is the perfect oil for sleeping, sending me off to the land of nod.
I found the Light Day Oil lived up to its name and was lighter in consistency. I found the scent slightly stronger than the Night Oil Treatment but still enjoyable. I love using this on the weekend when I don’t wear any make up and my skin can breathe.
Soothing Eye Serum – $45.00
Easy to use and perfect in the little pump bottle, I found a lot went a long way. The Soothing Eye Serum has a mild scent and a creamy texture. I found subtle changes to the skin under eyes, it felt hydrated with visible elasticity.
Pore Minimiser Nourish & Repair and Open Pore Serum Detox & Repair, $49.50
Like many, I do suffer from open pores especially on my nose. I was excited to try both of these serums in the hope they helped reduce the size of them. Both serums have a gel texture and like the eye serum you do only need a tiny amount.
The serums dry quickly and felt light weight on my skin.
I really love this brand, the products are made with great natural ingredients. They are also doing great things for the environment, as I mentioned, by using glassware for the products rather than plastic.
Louise has extensive knowledge with what works best for the skin, including tried and tested formulations. I’m pleased to have been introduced to this brand as I will now be a regular, especially that cleanser!
Pop on over to check out the full range and drop Louise an email if you have any questions, I’m sure she would love to hear from you.
