“I am attracted by the values that Human Nature stands for – Pro-Philippines, Pro-Poor and Pro-Environment. I find it amazing that for a product that is 100% natural, the expiry date is still months away, meaning I can really take my time to enjoy using this product!

A little goes a long way for this massage oil. It glides across the body effortlessly, and moisturizes without an oily after-feel. It leaves the skin feeling moisturised, smooth and soft after.

I love the fragrance, it is enticing without being overwhelming. The product states that it has 3 key essential oils – lavender, lemongrass and orange. The lemongrass and orange fragrance leaves a greater impression.

This product works great as a body lotion too. Use it after shower before going to sleep at night! Bliss :)”

I find this butter cream very fragrant, in fact so fragrant that I can smell the butter when I open the box it came in! The butter cream is very easy to apply. The downside is I find a need to wash my hands after applying the butter cream. The thin layer of oil that stays after the cream is applied leaves a luxurious feel.”

“With 2 warm-bodied halflings who like to mess around outdoors, they’re the perfect target for mozzies. And like any good mother-wannabe, I’m often equipped with overly powerful smelling mosquito patches and too watery J&J mozzie lotion, trying to keep those pesky things at bay.

The Human Nature Citronella Bug Spray is a happy solution that meets those needs. Its not really a ‘spray’ per se – as the nozzle dispenses squirts of the nicely viscous, slightly oily liquid, that doesn’t run off my hands while I’m trying to spread it on. Its also smells beautifully of citronella and lemongrass mix, without being too overpowering.

I tested it with the family while on a hike in the nature reserve, post-rain for maximum mozzie exposure (kidding, it was a coincidence). 3 hours later, 2 sweaty boys, sans bites. I think we’ve got a winner here.”
