What is rosehip? Well, as its name might suggest, rosehip is a derivative of the rose plant. After rose plants finish blooming, the petals begin to fall off, and are replaced by a small red fruit – the rosehip. Rosehip …

We were browsing this week and stumbled across this lovely review of our gorgeous Mokosh Rich Face Cream! Mokosh has recently achieved organic certification with NASAA, so this is the perfect time for us to boast about their beautiful product range! As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve just added some new Mokosh products to the site – their gorgeous 100% natural olive oil and shea & cocoa butter soaps. (Click to check them out). Now for the review of our Mokosh Rich Face Cream – courtesy of OrganicReviews.com.au. Read on!
If you are looking for a totally natural and organic face moisturiser, I highly recommend this Rich Face Cream from Mokosh.
Mokosh is an Australian company based in Fremantle, Western Australia, that is run by Marion O’Leary who was formerly a vet, pathologist, and medical scientist. Their products are completely natural and they do not use any preservatives. Their objective is to make skin care as pure, clean and natural as can be and they are doing a fantastic job.
Because this moisturiser is only made using the most natural and raw organic ingredients, it does not have the appearance of your typical chemical based product. The combination of natural oils such as macadamia, jojoba, avocado, neem and hemp oil plus shea butter give the product a firmer consistency if a room temperature environment. The best thing about this product though is that it truly moisturises and nourished the skin and keeps your skin soft through out the day.
Because of the different consitency, it is recommended that it is apply while your face is still slightly moist as this helps the dispersion of the cream.
I have dry skin and I have found this product to be the best moisturiser I have tried yet!
What a gorgeous review – and we couldn’t agree more. This moisturiser is especially good for those with particularly dry or dehydrated skin in need of some serious TLC. And at $35, it’s excellent value and will last for ages. Read more about our Mokosh Rich Face Cream here.

Today we thought we’d feature a gorgeous review we found on our Raw Gaia Living Facial Cleanser. This cleanser is a bit different – in a good way! Read on to find out more…
“I was recently invited by Raw Gaia to try out their Living Facial Cleanser first hand. I must admit when I first noticed the word “Living” it kinda scared me. I thought “what the heck am I going to be putting on my face?” ” I sure hope it doesn’t actually move!” So my parcel arrived last week and I was very pleased when I opened the box to find an attractive cobalt blue glass bottle of my Organic Facial Cleanser. Now just to clarify I am not a vegetarian or vegan by any means, but I love the concept of an all natural, pure skin care product. Through other reviews I have done in the past one thing always seems to ring true. Natural is better. It is time to get away from all the harsh, damaging chemicals that we use on our hair and skin. There are lots of wonderful oils and nutrients that mother nature has to offer. We just need to take a step back and enjoy what our Earth has to offer. So the “living” part of this facial cleanser is really quite simple and not scary at all. Basically Raw Gaia retains all the life force of the vital nutrients by not over heating their ingredients. Over heating can destroy most of the antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and the life force. This facial cleanser is essentially raw and living. As you can well imagine with such an organic, pure product it might also be sensitive to light and I think this is probably it is packaged in the dark-blue glass bottle. Makes sense to me and looks great.
With some facial cleansers you get your face wet and scrub away to remove dirt and oil and than rinse thoroughly. Raw Gaia organic living facial cleanser is a little different. You simply wet your face and then spray your entire face and neck with the facial cleanser. Then you take a cotton pad and wipe it off, taking all the nasty dirt and oil with it. I have been using the Raw Gaia facial cleanser for just about a week now. I really love that this facial cleanser is so gentle on my skin. It leaves it feeling clean, but not all dried out. It is soft and clean. You don’t feel like there is any residue left on your skin. It is not oily or sticky, but it does do something to your skin almost immediately-It nourishes it. I tried an experiment this week with Raw Gaia facial cleanser. I washed my face using an everyday bar soap. I used a well-known brand that has been around for decades. I washed my face throughly and rinsed it as well as I could and then patted my skin dry. I spritzed some Raw Gaia Living Facial Cleaners on a cotton pad and began wiping it across my face. I was amazed and disgusted all at the same time. My skin felt tight after the bar soap was but after using the Raw Gaia it felt moisturized. That is the amazing part. The disgusting part is the amount of dirt that was clearly visible on the cotton pad after I had just (what I thought) was thoroughly cleansed my face. How on earth did I still have makeup and other residue on my face? I was very impressed at this point. I had to find out what was really in this stuff. Here is what I found . . .
Organic Witch Hazel Floral Water: It has fantastic cleansing and astringent qualities without drying the skin. High in antioxidants and well-known for its revitalising properties, witch hazel floral Water is particularly effective on teenage skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties are good for reducing redness and sore swollen skin.
Organic Tea Tree Floral Water & Tea Tree Essential Oil: An antifungal, antiseptic, antiviral and antibacterial combination which is highly cleansing and purifying. It also helps to clear spots and pimples.
Organic Juniper Floral Water & Juniper Essential Oil: Effectively cleanses and detoxifies the skin. Especially good for acne, unblocking pores, congested skin and water retention.
Organic Cold-pressed Jojoba Oil: combines with the skin’s own sebum and gently unclogs pores and helps to free embedded dirt and grime. It is a natural anti-bacterial and helps to reduce skin inflammation.
Organic Cold-pressed Wheatgerm Oil: Rich in natural antifungal and antibacterial properties and high in vitamin E. It has excellent antioxidant properties which helps improve one’s overall complexion.
Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil: A natural antibacterial agent with good cleansing properties. Helps to detoxify congested skin and is a good overall skin tonic with the added bonus of helping to reduce fine lines.
Organic Lemon Essential Oil: Helps to enliven the skin complexion by removing dead skin cells. It has good cleansing ability and is naturally antifungal and antibacterial.
Organic Eucalyptus Essential Oil: Helps to clear congested skin, spots and pimples.
No wonder this facial cleanser from Raw Gaia works so well. I also find that it has a really nice calm scent, one that is natural and not offensive at all, might be the Eucalyptus but not quite sure.
Check out all the wonderful, organic products Raw Gaia has to offer. There really is a great selection.
If you are looking for all natural, 100% organic and vegan skin care products, you have to check out Raw Gaia. If you’re not totally satisfied with your current facial cleaner, try going chemical free and give Raw Gaia a chance. I really think it is a great cleanser and I have seen improvements in my skin already. I can’t wait to see more improvement over the following few weeks.
Hope you enjoyed that glowing review! The Living Facial Cleanser really is a beautiful, simple, and wonderfully effective product, and is especially good for oily and combination skin types. Plus, you don’t need any water to use it, so it’s fantastic for travel, and you can keep it at the side of your bed with some cotton balls & lazily wipe your makeup off after a big night. So convenient!
