Today I'm going to talk about a whole heap of products from the brand Natural Instinct. I have seen the brand around heaps of times, but never actually tried, so naturally excited when these newly launched products landed on my desk..


These products from Natural Instinct are not only made in Australia, but they are also made from natural plant ingredients and free from all the chemical nasties including petrochemicals, PEGs, mineral oils, sulphates, silicones, parabens, PABA, and artificial fragrances and colours, as well as they of course have not been tested on animals.

But lets start with the Natural Instinct Protect and Revive Shampoo and Conditioner for Colour Treated Hair. Common for both is that they've been made with among others jewelweed extract to help protect the hair from harmful UVA and UVB rays to help preserve the colour of your hair, as well as organic coconut oil to help add shine, volume and a healthy hair growth.

Because the shampoo is sulphate free it doesn't foam up as easily and as much as many other shampoos, which does take a little getting used to, but don't be fooled and be tempted to use too much shampoo, because it still cleans your hair, leaving it soft and looking healthy. And following with the thick and creamy conditioner, which also has been formulated with soybean biolipid complex due to its super conditioning formula that also adds a film on the hair cuticle to help smooth cuticle scales, seal split ends and reduce fly away hairs. And you can immediately feel how nourishing this conditioner is, and my hair drinks it up immediately, and is left easy to comb after wards. Once dry, my hair is left looking soft, shiny and healthy, and it has a gorgeous natural scent lingering behind no doubt thanks to the natural ingredients including lemon myrtle leaf oil, jojoba seed oil, sweet almond oil, rosemary leaf oil, tangerine peel oil, which have also been used in the products. I also love that the conditioner can either be used as a standard conditioner left in the hair for a few minutes, or that it also doubles as a more intense treatment left in for about 5 minutes before rinsed out.

It has been a while since I've had my hair coloured so its difficult to say how the products perform in maintaining and preserving hair colour, but regardless I do like how healthy these products make my hair look.

Next there's the Natural Instinct Uplifting Body Wash with Lemongrass and Ginseng, which is an invigorating shower gel. The added ginko is chock full of antioxidants which help regenerate the skin and stimulate circulation breaking down lipids commonly associated with cellulite, while the Vitamin C helps smooth and even the skin tone with antioxidant properties leaving skin feeling soft, supple & youthful, and finally energising lemon grass which stimulates and helps tone the skin leaving it feeling smooth & revitalised.

This body wash is so gentle on the skin, leaving it clean without drying out the skin or making it itchy, and it has the most beautiful fresh and zesty scent thanks to the ginseng and the lemon grass, and it is hence the perfect soap to use in the morning when you need a bit of a kick start, and I love that this scent lingers in my bathroom after use, making it smell like a spa!

I follow with the Natural Instinct Silky Hydrating Body Lotion which contains a triple nourishing complex boosted by among others sweet almond, rosehip and jojoba oils to add intense moisture and nourishment to the skin, leaving it so silky soft and supple. But the ingredients natural also have other purposes, and so the sweet almond oil also helps improve the skin's barrier function, the rosehip oil rich in fatty acids and vitamin c helps heal and has anti-ageing properties, while the jojoba oil has moisturising and protecting properties. In addition it also contains other nourishing ingredients including avocado oil and mango seed butter, as well as lavender oil and chamomile flower extract, which is likely contributing to its slightly floral scent.

The body lotion has a thick consistency and does take a moment or two to absorb into the skin, but you can feel its intense moisturising properties, and once it has, the skin is left truly silky soft and so smooth. Because the body wash is so gentle, and the body lotion so intensely moisturising this combo would also be the perfect pair for sensitive dry skin types!

Finally, there's the Natural Instinct Softening Hand & Nail Cream, which is a nourishing treatment to help store skin smoothness while strengthening and repairing cuticles and fingernails. This rich hand cream is loaded with among others shea butter to restore dry skin and sweet almond oil to deeply moisture and improve the skin's barrier function. Again, this rich hand cream does take a few moments to absorb, but once it has, your hands feels incredibly soft and smooth. Even super dry and cracked hands are quickly restored, and my winter-dry nails and cuticles are clearly thriving with this intense treatment too.

Overall these are fantastic products from Natural Instinct, and I love that they are free from all the chemical nasties, and that they also do not contain artificial fragrances but are scented with the natural ingredients.

The products come in huge bottles, and are also exceptional good value. I would not hesitate purchasing either of them again, although particularly love the body wash and body lotion and the hand cream.
