Miessence Skin Essentials Review

Since the skin is the body's largest organ, I'm always looking for skincare that is effective and chemical-free.  Miessence is a wonderful brand that delivers on both!  I reviewed four of their Skin Essentials regimens, which were sponsored by Hannah from TheOliveParent Organics, an independent representative of Miessence.

Miessence is an Australian company that was established under the Organic & Natural Enterprises Group in 2003 by Narelle and Colin Chenery, Alf Orpen, and John Hunter.  It is the world's first extensive range of internationally certified organic skin, hair, body, cosmetic, oral, and nutritional products.  The Skin Essentials products are Australian Certified Organic, and also certified organic to International Food Standards.  They're made with yucca extract, as opposed to harsh soaps or detergents.  They gently remove dirt and oils from the skin with the natural plant saponins found in yucca.

The first line I tried was the Rejuvenating one, and I also used this one the most extensively.  There was a mix-up in the original shipment, and I received 10 each of the cleanser, skin conditioner, and moisturizer in Rejuvenating, so I was able to use this for a longer period of time than the other varieties.  The Rejuvenating line is meant for dry/mature skin, and is formulated with organic geranium, hops, and chamomile.  I have to say that this line was probably my least favorite, as the products had a very strange scent.  They were gently on my skin, but I didn't see any noticeable difference after using this for about two weeks.  My main issue is redness and oil, which is not what this line was created for.

The Purifying line was my favorite and much better suited for my skin.  It's meant for oily/problem skin and the organic extracts it contains help inflamed complexions.  The main ingredients are organic echinacea, plantain, calendula, with hazel, tea tree, and lemon myrtle.  I really liked using these products and I think they worked well with my oily skin.  Unfortunately, I only received one packet of each so I was only able to use these for a total of two days before my supply ran out.  I would have been interested to see how well they worked after a month's time or more.

I also enjoyed using the Soothing line, as my skin is oily but also sensitive and this one is targeted toward sensitive skin.  It contains two soothing chamomiles (German and Roman), protective calendula, carrot, and organic horsechestnut.  I liked the scent of this line the best, too.

Last up is the Balancing line, made for normal/combination skin.  It is a hydrating aloe vera infusion with organic olive leaf, calendula, and marshmallow to refresh and tone the skin.  I felt that this line also worked well with my skin.  Each line came with a cleanser, skin conditioner, and moisturizer, which were to be used in that order.  The cleansers were non-foaming and very gentle, the skin conditioner was a serum-like consistency and very potent (so a little went a long way), and the moisturizer was light but effective.

Bottom Line: I wish I had received more packets to try in the Purifying, Soothing, and Balancing lines, since they all worked well with my skin after a few uses.  I think that the Purifying line would probably be the best for my skin in the long run.  Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed using these Miessence Skin Essentials products and I would definitely recommend them.  I love that they're certified organic, cruelty-free, and available for a wide range of skin types.
