This is truly a beautiful body wash, it is so gentle that even those with serious skin conditions can use it, such as those with psoriasis, and those who are undergoing chemotherapy.
The formula is gel based and it lathers up nicely, enough to be able to shave your legs and underarms with confidence, no nicks or grazes. It contains moringa protein, which is loaded with amazing antioxidants, it's high in vitamin A (retinol) which is one of the best anti-ageing ingredients, along with olive squalene.
It also contains anti-bacterial Lemon Myrtle and Orange Peel Oil and Chamomile and Calendula to soothe skin. This also gives it an amazingly fresh, soft and clean scent.
It is multipurpose, it's great economically and for the environment as it can also be used as shaving gel , shampoo or bubble bath.
Purify facial cleanser
This is a really nice, simple and gentle gel based cleanser. It balances skin without using any harsh ingredients, just pure ingredients from nature. This wins hands down over any chemical facial cleanser around today and many other natural cleansers, especially for balancing skin. It improves skin tone and keeps acne at bay. It feels so refreshing and beautiful, it removes make-up easily (which I wear every day).
It contains the nourishing calendula and French lavender and Australian lemon scented tea tree oil.
Suitable for all skin types, from dry to oily, I have combination skin and felt as though it left my skin feeling really soft and smooth.
Olive skin serum
I have been using this delicate olive skin serum daily, it contains the skin saving ingredient olive squalene, which resembles the built in moisturiser in our skin. Squalene decresases as we age, this is why this amazing little ingredient is so important in our skin care routine.
This serum is non-greasy and really seems to just melt into my skin very quickly, so can also be used in the morning before applying make-up.
It seals moisture into skin for 24 hours, so even if you just apply once in the morning you’re obtaining some amazing anti aging benefits without too much effort!
The organic Mediterranean olives used in this serum are from their heartland in Greece. The extract from the olive pip is a skin-biocompatible ingredient which is almost identical to the squalene in human skin. It treats skin conditions, such as Eczema, Psoriasis & Rosacea.
What is great about this serum is that although it is an oil, it doesn’t feel oily, so it’s fantastic for every skin type, even oily skin. It has a subtle light lemony scent.
I also love the amber bottle.
Botani is a beautiful organic and natural skin care range, when I use it I feel like I'm really taking care of my skin the right way. I get a very forest fresh feeling when I use it. Because all of the ingredients are so safe, I would recommend this range to people of all ages, especially those with extra sensitive skin who have trouble finding effective, but gentle skin care.

Botani’s Olive Skin Serum is an intensive anti-ageing skin serum. The reason it is so effective in preventing premature ageing is because it contains 100 percent photo-active Olive Squalene (from olives), which resembles the built in moisturiser each of us has in our skin.
Squalene decreases as we age, which has an effect on the way our skin ages, this is why it’s important to keep the squalene levels in our skin topped up.
Using only organic and pure ingredients, the founder of Botani's amazing skincare science is Australian Naturopath and Herbalist Barbara Filokostas. Barbara uses the ancient wisdom of naturopathy, plants and natural beauty to formulate this luxury range of plant based skincare.
When I apply the serum, I first find that it gives my skin a nice dewey glow, I apply it all over my décolletage and face and love the instant impact it has on dry skin, making it look and feel soft and supple and almost glowing.
I use this twice a day, morning and night. The serum is smooth enough to sink into skin evenly and is a perfect base for foundation. I didn’t even need to use a moisturiser when I use this. Perfect for use during winter and summer, to soothe skin, smooth out scars and heal dry skin patches. It leaves skin feeling hydrated, at the same time not leaving it with an oily residue. It does feel as though it gets into fine lines and somehow plumps up my skin, making it appear more youthful. Perfect for all skin types and very healing for those with Eczema, Psorisis and Rosacea.
I was already a fan of Botani as I had used their Acai berry serum and loved the way it felt. Very high quality and using ingredients that are extremely effective for anti ageing, with the scientific and naturopathic research to back it up.
The ingredients are - Olive Squalene, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Vitamin E (Tocopherol), Lecithin. You really can't get much more pure than that.
Once you start to feel and see the impact Olive Squalene has on your skin, this might be your next anti-ageing weapon!
Botani's Olive Skin Serum can be purchased at Botani.
I received this product for a review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
Botani - pure skin plant solutons, is an Australian natural skin care company founded in 1998 in Melbourne, Australia by Naturopath and Herbalist Barbara Filokostas. Barbara uses the ancient wisdom of naturopathy, plants and natural beauty to formulate this luxury range of plant based skincare.
Using only organic and pure ingredients in this amazing botanical skin science, I was so lucky to be able to try the Acai Berry Active Antioxidant Serum. The first thing I noticed when I opened the bottle was the amazing scent, I love berries, I love the taste, I love the fragrance and when I applied this serum the natural scent just had me right there. When I looked at the ingredients I could see why, it contains Amazonian Acai Berry fruit oil, cranberry and blackberry seed oils, so along with the beautiful natural fragrance this also packs a pretty big punch when it comes to treating my skin with powerful anti-aging antioxidants and vitamins.
On top of this, the serum contains Olive Squalene, Olive Squalene is a plant active derived from the olive pip, which has a molecular structure comparable to our skin.
Up until now I didn’t realise how important Olive Squalene was for anti-aging. It has the ability to cancel out the cell damaging effects of free radicals including ultraviolet light from the sun. It has been clinically proven to increase skin’s moisture levels by up to 50%.
Everyone is born with Squalene in their skin. From as early as 25 years of age the Squalene production in our skin decreases, resulting in the dehydration that leads to fine lines, wrinkles and premature ageing.
So now you see how important it is to keep the squalene in our skin replenished!
Unlike mineral oils, squalene is non greasy, so when it’s added into a product like this, it’s the perfect serum to apply before make-up, as it absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave any oily residue.
The main ingredient, Acai Berry is an antioxidant powerhouse. In skincare formulations, it can help protect the skin from environmental aggressors and delay the appearance of aging.
Another interesting and effective ingredient is Bisabolol, an anti-infalmmatory derived from the German Chamomile flower. It helps to calm irritated skin, which is very good for sun damage, sun burn and healing scars.
I loved using this serum, I used it morning and night. It left my skin feeling perfectly moisturised and silky soft. I felt as though it really penetrated into the fine lines in my skin, it felt very luxurious.
