Product Review: Uandi Natural Facial Moisturiser SPF 15 + Giveaway

Increasingly interested in more natural skin care products, I was excited when I was asked to trial the Uandi Natural Facial Moisturiser SPF15. And keep reading, as you too will have a chance to try this moisturiser.  But first, here are my thoughts;

What They Say:
Protect, nurture and hydrate your skin with this wonderful moisturiser. Rich in nurturing ingredients to help relax the signs of ageing, this SPF15 moisturising cream contains wheat protein and vitamin E to energise and hydrate your skin whilst providing daily sun protection from damaging UV rays and maintaining healthy skin.

RRP: $40 (50ml) – Available from Uandi Natural website.

What I Say:
Having never tried any Uandi Natural products before I did a little research into the company and the products, and I was pleasantly surprised at what I discovered.

Uandi, which is both Australian made and owned, draws heavily on the traditional bush plant knowledge held by Indigenous Australians, by combining the intimate bush plant knowledge with potent botanicals and natural ingredients, as well as highly effective anti-ageing actives.

The products are based on the mid-point between scientifically proven skincare and centuries-old Noongar wisdom (Noongar are the Indigenous population based in and around Perth).

Uandi believes in taking care of fulfilling the expectations placed upon modern natural skin care in Australia, and consequently the Uandi products do not contain parabens, sulphates and other nasties, as well as they are free from artificial colours and fragrances. Rather they are full of fresh scents and colours obtained from natural essential oils and extracts from native Australian plant extracts. And of course the products have not been tested on animals. Impressive huh?

The Uandi moisturiser comes with a sleek black pump bottle with white and gold writing and drawings inspired by Indigenous Australian art. Simple yet so eye catching.

I love moisturisers which comes in pump bottles as they are so easy to use, and not to mention so much more hygienic than when you constantly stick your fingers into a jar.

The cream itself is a creamy white consistency, and it has a pleasant, herby, and naturally earthy scent coming from all the essential and natural oils used in the cream. I guess you can say that it smells uniquely Australian! Some may find this too strong, however, this scent does fade once the cream has absorbed into the skin.

The Uandi Natural Face Moisturiser contains nurturing ingredients to help relax the signs of ageing, including wheat protein and vitamin E to help energise and hydrate your skin. It also contains Kakadu Plum, which is the highest known natural source of vitamin C in the world, and not to mention Quandong, Davidson Plum and Lilly Pilly to provide moisturising, antioxidant and conditioning benefits for a healthy looking skin. And of course it also contains SPF15 to provide you with daily sun protection. You can also see the full list of ingredients here.

Having combination skin, prone to breakouts, I always worry using a new moisturiser. But I didn’t need to worry as the Uandi moisturiser is very lightweight, and absorbs into my skin quickly, leaving it soft and subtle, and without feeling greasy. And after having used it for a few weeks my skin is feeling and looking thoroughly moisturised, and looking healthy and glowing, clearly enjoying the natural goodness in the cream – and with no increase in breakouts! And I’m pretty pleased too, knowing that I’m not drowning my skin in unnecessary and harmful chemicals. So if you too are looking for a natural moisturiser, I highly recommend you try it!
