At The Herb Farm, we have always believed that a consistent, 100% natural skincare routine is one of the best ways to achieve your optimal skin results, and that making the all-important switch to natural is easier than you think!
We asked a group of 30 women to switch to The Herb Farm skincare for 30 consecutive days, and the results were conclusive - a consistent routine makes all the difference! Why not take the challenge yourself?
The key to success is finding the best products to suit your skin type, which is why we created our online skincare consultation. Try it now and you will receive 20% off when you purchase a complete Skin System of cleanser, exfoliating cream, toning mist and moisturiser.

We will be profiling some of our wonderful participants over the next few months - sharing with you a little about their lives and their skin stories. To begin with, say hello to our group from Melbourne, Australia: Jenna, Meg, Alexandra and Denise.
JENNA - NORMAL (INCLUDING SENSITIVE) SKIN
Jenna (@ironicminimalist) is a 32 year old sustainable fashion stylist, cat lover and small business owner.
Jenna found that the some of the challenges of 2020 affected not only her life but also her usually-well-behaved skin. Dry patches from mask wearing and a lack of professional facial options being open during lockdown meant trying out new skincare from home.
After 30 days of using the Herb Farm Normal (including sensitive) Skin Range, she noticed that her skin was softer and smoother with less dry patches. Her favourite product was the Rejuvenating Facial Toning Mist – she found it “so refreshing to spray on my skin... I loved using it when I wear my mask at work. It gives me a little boost for the rest of my day.”
MEG - Dry Skin
Meg is a Mum to one (and soon to be another!) and craft extraordinaire. She also works as Content Producer at an environmental not-for-profit organization (talk about multi-talented!). Meg is an avid nature lover so it makes total sense that she prefers 100% natural skincare and was over-the-moon to try The Herb Farm products.
Meg’s skin type is dry with occasional pigmentation issues. After 30 days of using the Dry Skin Range, she reported that her skin was “more luminous, toned and hydrated. All the products smell absolutely lovely!”
Her favourite product was the Enriching Rosehip Facial Cleanser – in her own words: “I really enjoyed the creaminess of the cleanser and how soft/moisturised my skin felt after using it.”
ALEXANDRA - OILY & COMBINATION SKIN
Alexandra, 30, is a florist, a singer in multiple bands and an all-round good sort! Her smile says it all; she cares deeply about her fellow humankind and the planet on which we all reside. A long-time advocate of a natural lifestyle, she was very open to trying skincare from a brand with values that aligned with her own.
Alexandra’s skin type is combination, leaning towards oily with enlarged pores, so we suggested she trial the Oily & Combination Skin range. Her favourite product was the Purifying Exfoliating Cream which was “good to use, smells great and has a good consistency. It left my skin feeling great!”
DENISE - Normal (Including Sensitive) Skin
Denise is a 28 year old florist who loves travelling and playing music in her spare time. Given her daily contact with the world of flora, it is no surprise that Denise loves the fact that The Herb Farm uses fresh herbal ingredients direct from the garden.
Denise's skin tends to be normal, with the occasional breakout and areas of redness/pigmentation, so she trialed the Normal (including sensitive) Skin Range.
Her favourite product was the Softening Rose Cream Cleanser which "has made my skin softer and smoother than any other cleanser I've used before! I had some redness around my t-zone, which has now subsided.” She also commented: "All the products smell amaziiiiing - so floral and natural!"
CARLIE - SIGNS OF AGEING SKIN
Carlie, 39 is a beach-loving, energetic Mum to two young kids, designer and small business owner who lives on the beautiful NSW Central Coast. Her clothing label is built around strong ethics and sustainability, so it is only natural that her personal skincare tends to lean towards brands that hold similar values.
Carlie’s skin type is normal, however in the past she had found that without a regular skincare routine her skin would become quite dry, so she trialed our Signs of Ageing Skin range.
Her favourite product was the Lemon and Echinacea Toning Mist– “It instantly felt refreshing and hydrating on my skin.”
GAYATRI - OILY & COMBINATION SKIN
Gayatri is a 36 year old lawyer who lives in inner-city Sydney. Her busy lifestyle balancing work, life and a little DJing on the side means that she doesn’t usually stick to a regular skin routine. She also finds that stress, diet and lack of sleep contribute to the overall health of her skin.
Gayatri‘s skin type is combination, so she trialed our Oily & Combination Skin range with the addition of our Revitalising Face Mask and Radiance Boost Facial Serum.
KELLY - NORMAL (INCLUDING SENSITIVE) SKIN
Kelly is a 36-year-old entrepreneur, sustainability guru and mama who lives in the beautiful coastal community of Clovelly in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. She is an old soul, wise beyond her years and has always felt an innate connection to planet earth and its inhabitants. She currently works as a Sustainability Manager for a fashion brand, as well being co-founder of ethical fashion online store.
Kelly’s skin type is normal but had some concerns about the recent appearance of a few wrinkles, so she trialed a mix of our Normal (including Sensitive)and Dry Skin ranges.
Her favourite product was the Smoothing Exfoliating Cream– “the fine particles worked so well as an exfoliant and left my skin feeling so soft and refreshed”.
CRYSTAL - OILY & COMBINATION SKIN
Crystal, 36, is a beautiful, energetic person who seems to radiate sunshine everywhere she goes! Hailing from the UK but now living in Bondi and working in Management, she loves summertime, the beach and exploring the natural wonders of the world.
Crystal‘s skin type is combination, and found that one of her main skin concerns was pigmentation and uneven skin tone, so she trialed our Oily & Combination Skin range.
Her favourite product was the Clarifying Facial Toning Mist - “It left a fresh early morning feeling with every blast. I actually carried it in my bag to refresh my skin during the day, especially whilst working as it helped to wake me up!”
LAURA - NORMAL (INCLUDING SENSITIVE) SKIN
Laura, 38 is a nature, travel and book loving Mum of two young kids and Senior Communications Manager living in New South Wales. Juggling a busy career, an Instagram page which provides gluten free recipes and breast feeding - it comes as no surprise that she is missing some sleep!
Laura‘s skin type is normal but prone to dullness, redness and the occasional pimple/hormonal breakout , so she trialed a mix of our Normal (including sensitive) and Dry Skin ranges.
