Review of Some Miessence Organic Skin Care Products

Once you start searching for organic makeup or skin care products on line, it’s hard not to run into Miessence. It is a complete line that is sold through independent representatives. I guess it’s sort of a home based business opportunity for those interested in selling it.

Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated with Miessence. I’m not their representative. I was, however, contacted by a number of representatives. One of them, Annie, sent me a few samples, some of which I’m about to review. So if the product appeals to you, check out her Miessence store.

Ok, let’s get started.

Annie sent me a number of products, but in the interest of time I’m only going to review two: the moisturizer and the cleanser.

Product names:

Miessence Soothing Moisturizer

miessence soothing moisturiser

Miessence Soothing Cleanser:

miessence soothing cleanser

About the brand:

The company that produces Miessence is called ONEGroup which is an achronim for Organic and Natural Enterprise Group. It is Australian based and it produces a whole reange of skincare, haircare, health care and cosmetic products. It makes product that are certified by ACO (Australian Certified Organic), the USDA and IFOAM (Organic Federation of Agriculture Movements, in Europe).

The company distributes its products via independent representatives. (Sort of like Mary Kay and Avon).

Price:

According to the web the moisturizer is about $40 for 50 ml and the cleanser is $40.95 for 250 ml bottle.

Certifications:

This is where this brand shines. Miessence got it covered. The products are certified organic by Australian government, the USDA and IFOAM. They are certified organic to International Food Standard. You can’t get better than that.

Packaging:

Both products come in recyclable plastic tubes. To quote from the bottle: “100% Recyclable non leaching Plastic”

Reading the ingredients:

Both products are concoctions of organic oils and extracts. I did not spot any ingredients I could complain about. Bravo.

Scent:

The products have similar scent. For some reason it reminds me of a certain cooking oil but I can’t quite place it. I wouldn’t say that the smell is the product’s strongest feature. That’s one place where some tweaking wouldn’t hurt. But it’s not all that bad either. Just different…

Texture:

The moisturizer is a very thin cream, almost watery. The cleanser is also a gentle cream mix, though a bit less runny.

Performance:

The cleanser does it job perfectly well. I used it to wash off all the fancy organic makeup I’ve been wearing lately (a layer of foundation, brow pencil, mascara and some shadows) and it all came off without excessive rubbing. It also felt gentle and not in the least irritating.

The moisturizer was a bit too light for my skin. And a bit watery – my skin was softer than without cream, but I felt as if there was a tiny tight film on it. (Annie also sent me a really small pack of Miessence Rejuvinating Moisturiser. I wasn’t going to review it officially, but after I tried it I wish she sent me a tube of that one! It was exactly what my skin was craving).

Verdict:

Cleanser – I haven’t tried it on tough mainstream makeup. But for regular cleansing and removing of natural makekup I would definitely recommend it. It’s pure and gentle.

Moisturiser – this particular moisturizer is not for someone with really dry skin. Probably for normal but I wouldn’t know… I think it’s a bit too thin. For really dry skin try the rejuvenating moisturizer.

In any case, do give this line of organic products your consideration. I think they really get what it means to be organic.

Tips: Annie also sent me a set of small sample packs. Which supports my theory that most reputable companies have samples. So if you are unsure about a product you could probably try asking for some samples or buying really small size packages before you plunge into a full blown shopping spree.

Kudos to you and Annie! I became a customer of MiEssence after seeing their name crop up repeatedly on skin deep. All products rated between 0-2. I started out as a preferred cusotmer and bought every sample they carry. I fell in love with all the products I tried and eventally became a rep for the company. I really like that they have products for ALL your personal, household and your digestive needs. Check out the website. It has a lot of news articles and is very informative. It also has a complete organic and natural baby line.

Hi Julena, thanks for this great review. It is nice to see that some companies take the green issue seriously and come up with purely organic products. They even take the necessary steps to see that their packaging is perfect to conform to the current trend for recyclable packaging materials. A very positive trend to be followed by all manufacturers.

Thanks for the great review!

Hi, I have been using Miessence products for several months and cannot speak more highly of them. I have hormonal blemishes and am in my 30′s and these products leave my skin so clean and fresh. My blemishes are never red or raised either and never get sore and yucky looking. In fact I would go so far as to say that I have noticed a have a few less lines around my eyes. I think this is just due to the hydration and therefore plumping up the products give me. They have several ranges for differing skin types which is great. Everyone can rest assured they have amazing integrity and some fabulous products. The tropical body cream is divine. Smells like Frangipani and Jasmine. yummy. :-)

Nice product. I am using it and I am happy!

14 Asta Olafsdottir { 10.12.09 at 11:42 am }

Thanks for a great review! I have become an independent representative myself because I love the Miessence products and want to tell everyone about them :o ) I know so many, including myself, who have benefitted from using these products.
The thin moisturiser might be the conditioner which you apply before the moisturiser. The moisturiser is actually quite thick.
To superboost the moisturiser it is great to put a few drops of the rejuvenessence facial serum before or mix together. It feels absolutely divine!

15 Ayrton { 10.23.09 at 2:04 pm }

I’m so excited about this line cant wait to try it.

16 Micah { 11.05.09 at 1:57 pm }

I love the concept of Miessence’s products HOWEVER…

the two deodorants I tried left my skin red, chapped, scaly and sore for days and days.

I am sure I am in a minority, but just remember that although they are manufactured from natural ingredients and come with impeccable credentials their products still have the propensity to cause allergic reactions. Do a patch test!

23 Sarade { 03.16.10 at 9:22 am }

I’m always interested in learning about new organic and ecofriendly skincare and cosmetic lines. And it is true…I do prefer to sample my skincare before I invest in it.

24 obagi reviews { 04.10.10 at 11:58 pm }

I have very sensitive skin. I would love to try this. My friend is also into natural products so I will let her know as well. Great read.

Hi, I just came across this nice site, I love organic skin care and have used products from Hauschka, Weleda and others, but have come across the great oganic anti aging line called OASKIN from the french company 3Chênes, since I’m in my mid 40ties I have been looking around for some wrinckle controlers and have to say that I am extreamly happy with the products, the day and night cream with the eye contour is really nice, for the aging spots the Bi phase dipigmenting care, works really well. Not only has my skin a nicer appearence, but it feels good…the products are available inthe US online at http://www.angelinecosmetics.com . besides the OASKIN line the sell a great natural hair dye, shampoo and cconditioner pack. I can only recommend to check the site out. Enjoy!!

32 Paula { 09.29.10 at 6:31 pm }

I just recieved my first Miessence product, and unfortunately it will be my last. I first heard of the products on the Skin Deep website and was excited to find a line of products that had a rating of zero for toxicity. I was disappointed by the smell of the moisturizer, but will probably try to get used to it so I won’t feel like I wasted $50.

33 Arlene Treadaway { 10.17.10 at 10:10 pm }
