If you’re looking for natural skin care products that don’t cost the earth and are kind to your skin and the planet then listen up. Okana Skin Care is an exiting new Kiwi company that creates products that are actually natural enough to eat (not that I’m suggesting you do). I was lucky enough to be sent the entire range to trial and it’s safe to say I’m impressed. So today I’ve teamed up with Okana to give you a little insight into this cool new Kiwi brand and to give you the chance to win one of two Okana gift packs containing all eight products. So scroll down to find out more and don’t forget to enter to win.

The first thing I noticed when I started using Okana products was their lack of smell. The packaging looks so colourful I almost expected the products to smell the same but they didn’t. Given that the brand’s philosophy is less is more it makes sense really. Only the natural raw ingredients are used and when you read the packaging you can see exactly that. Don’t expect to find any strange names of chemicals you’ve never heard of before. Of course natural is one thing but the products, in my mind, still need to deliver on their promise. My favourite product in the entire range was the Berry Blend Intense Repair Night Moisturiser. I like to really treat my skin at night and this cream left my skin feeling incredibly well nourished but it was light-weight enough to not feel greasy and pore-clogging if you know what I mean. I also loved the Cucumber and Lettuce Juice Maximal Protection Mist Toner because I’ve always been a bit of a toner girl. I love how a great toner instantly makes your freshly-cleansed face come alive and from a practical standpoint it helps your moisturiser spread easily and therefore you tend to use less too – winning!
Overall, I think the products are really fab. They look great in your bathroom, they’re affordable, kind to the planet and your skin and they’re Kiwi made – yay! So if you’re looking for an affordable natural alternative to your everyday skincare then I’d definitely recommend Okana.
