Product Review: MyNewSkin UF7 in Olive and Lavender and Olive and Lemon Myrtle

Today I’d like to share with you my thoughts on the *MyNewSkinUF7 in Olive and Lavender and Olive and Lemon Myrtle;


What They Say:
"100% Natural. Intensively nourishes and restores skin. Carefully made from a special combination of 7 freshly-picked, skin-healthy herbs and Lavender oil or Lemon Myrtle oil. Each Ingredient has its own benefits for your skin: nourishing, moisturising, softening, refreshing and replenishing"

RRP: $24.95 (50g) - Available from MyNewSkin

What I Say:

As I’ve never before heard of MyNewSkin, I decided to look a little into the brand, and it turns out it is an Australian brand, based in sunny Queensland, and the balms are made from completely natural and chemical free ingredients. The balms are made from plant oils and herb extracts - which are processed within 3 hours of being freshly picked, for superior freshness. How amazing does that sound! And add to that that MyNewSkin offers a money back guarantee for unsatisfied customers. Impressive!

MyNewSkin Balms are multi-purpose and can be used literally anywhere on the nface and body; it can be used as a face moisturiser, on dry elbows, knees, or feet, as a cuticle balm, or even on the lips.

There are two different balms available - Olive and Lavender, and Olive and Lemon Myrtle. They're both 100% natural, and both intensively nourish and restore skin. With regular use, they nourish, moisturise, soften, replenish, and refresh dry, ageing, or uneven skin tone. 

Each balm is made from 7 types of freshly picked herbs, including Cold Pressed Olive Oil, Burdock Leaf, Chickweed Leaf, Olive Leaf, Oregano Leaf, Sheep Sorrel Leaf, Ocean Salt, Beeswax, Salad Burnett Leaf, Lantana Leaf, and Macadamia Wax, - and each of these ingredients has its own targeted skin benefits. And in addition the balm also contains either Lavender oil or Lemon Myrtle. 

And let me start my saying that each of the balms smells amazing in their own right, so fresh and natural. But personally (and if you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’d know this), but I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE lemon scented products, so needless to say that the Lemon Myrtle balm is my absolute favourite, it is just has such a refreshing and zesty scent. But in saying that, the lavender scent is also nice and calming, it is really a matter of personal preference.


The balms come in a brown plastic tub with a screw lid, simple and easy to use. The actual balm is quite solid in texture, but once you warm it with your hands (or on a day like today, as I write this, where it is 41 degrees warm), it has a much lighter texture.

The balm is easy to spread onto the skin, and while it does absorb into the skin fairly quickly, it does leave it a little greasy – especially if you are too heavy handed, as these balms are so concentrated that it only takes the tiniest amount.


Again, you can use the balms all over, but as I have combination skin, very prone to breakouts, and even more so during the hot and humid summer days, I have to admit that I stayed clear of using it on my face, but concentrated on the dry areas on my body –my feet and my cuticles – as well as on my lips. And because of the slightly greasy feeling, I have preferred using it at night before going to bed, so I didn’t transfer the cream onto my shoes or leave greasy fingerprints everywhere  - but that works perfectly for me, as I rarely have time to moisturise my feet in the morning anyway, and moisturising my cuticle is something that I often do as I sit in front of the telly. And as for using the balms as lipbalms – as the tubs are so large, they are not particularly handy to carry around in your handbag, but are perfect to keep on the bedside table!


And well, when you wake up in the morning, the balm has done its magic. My feet feel and look so much nicer and slowly, with continued use, my dry cracked feet is healing up and looking so much better. And same goes for my cuticles, and consequently my nails looks so much nicer. And my lips are just super smooth and soft.

What I Like:
  • Australian owned and made
  • Made using fresh ingredients, and absolutely no chemical nasties
  • Multi-purpose
  • Smells amazing
  • Concentrated so a little goes a long way

What I Don’t Like:
  • It only keeps for 6 months after being opened as it doesn’t contain any preservatives, but then again, that is a good thing, that it doesn't contain an artificial preservative, isn’t it!
  • Apart from not feeling confident that I can use this slightly greasy balm on my blemish prone skin, I really have no negatives to say about these balms.

Overall, I am really enjoying using these balms, and in particularly the one with Lemon Myrtle – and consequently I’ve been using the Lavender and Olive one on my feet, and the Lemon Myrtle one my cuticles and my lips, so I can keep smelling the gorgeous citrus scent. If you’re looking for a natural multi-tasking product, then I highly recommend that you try it. I have no doubt that I will be repurchasing this again.
