Moana Organics Skincare range
By Nicola on April 10, 2014 in Beauty
Moana is certified organic and bioactive skincare made right here in NZ by passionate cosmetic experts who do not believe in compromising on bioactive ingredients. The company’s organic ethos is all-encompassing, which means that ingredients are eco-harvested in an effort to ensure their preservation and renewal.
Moana use a unique blend of Marine Glycans, found only in New Zealand’s red seaweed, combined with endemic plant extracts and Manuka honey, which delivers a powerful boost of antioxidants and anti-aging benefits to the skin. Glycans are large molecules that bind with water molecules. As we age, they become less effective so they don’t absorb water as efficiently meaning skin can become dull and dry. Therefore glycan based products help improve hydration and give skin greater luminosity*. You can read more about Moana’s unique natural marine glycan benefits here.
I was lucky enough to try some of the Moana range and here’s my verdict on the products I tried.
￼￼￼1. Moana Renewal Day Cream
This day cream feels amazing on the skin, it absorbs quickly and is not too thick or greasy. I’ve noticed it’s made my skin firmer and complexion look smoother. Check out the Day Cream here.
￼￼￼2. Moana Pure Drop of Youth Oil
This would have to be my favourite of the products I tried. The oil smells amazing, and is so nourishing for your skin. I had quite dry skin after using a product that didn’t agree with my skin, and after using this product just once my skin was looking great again. I was really surprised that I’d get such great results so quickly. The oil doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy and it absorbs quickly, leaving your skin feeling soft and supple. Moana Oil is a unique combination of oils, and includes Hemp Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Kawakawa Oil and Kiwi seed Oil. Check it out here.
￼￼3. Moana Instant Lifting Mask
I love a relaxing night and having a hot bath while popping on a face mask. Moana Instant Lifting mask helps tighten and firm your skin and I noticed it helped reduce my under eye dark
circles. Before you apply the mask, you pop some oil on your skin. Then add a generous amount of the mask and relax for 15 minutes while it does its thing. Then simply rinse off. The mask is made with a range of organic ingredients including Marine glycans – Glycoplus® from New Zealand red seaweed which enhance the power of the extracts by helping them penetrate deeply into your skin and help smooth away wrinkles and fine lines. It also contains Manuka honey, kiwifruit extracts, harekeke and mamaku which help soothe and hydrate your skin. Check out the mask here.
