Innoxa Organic Skin Care Review

03/08/2016

Innoxa launched an organic skin care range last year, I was really excited when it launched, so I bought all the products straight away. They originally launched 5 products in the Organic line, which were a Gentle Cleansing Gel, Hydrating & Anti-Ageing Serum, Hydrating Daily Moisturiser, Replenishing Night Creme and Brightening Eye Creme. Later they also added a Purifying Facial Scrub and Nourishing Hand Creme. At the time, I was looking for a more natural skincare regime as I had been reacting to many products I was using. So the Innoxa Organic range was my first introduction to natural beauty products, and because of my positive experience with these products, I branched out to try natural products from various brands.

Innoxa Organic Skincare Brightening Eye Creme Review - Polish and Paws
Innoxa Organic Brightening Eye Creme

If you haven’t heard of Innoxa before, it’s an affordable Australian brand that makes both skincare and cosmetics. Their products are all developed in Australia and they are accredited by Choose Cruelty Free (so they definitely don’t test on animals). There is also a vegan product list on their website that is easily accessible and updated regularly. The whole Organic range is vegan, dermatologically tested and is certified by COSMOS (Cosmetic Organic Standard).

Innoxa Organic Gentle Cleansing Gel 75ml $14.99

The Innoxa Organic Gentle Cleansing Gel is one of the few cleansers I am able to use on my sensitive skin. The gel is clear with a slight green-ish tint and quickly foams when rubbed into the skin. My skin feels clean after I have used this cleanser but I do have a slight tight skin feeling after using this and before moisturiser. This tight feeling is nothing in comparison to many of the cleansers I have previously tried and it doesn’t cause any irritation or redness. If I have an eczema outbreak, then I will skip the cleanser and just use the moisturising products, but I haven’t had an eczema flare in many months, so I know this product isn’t causing any problems for my skin. The Innoxa Organic Gentle Cleansing Gel is enriched with sweet almond, macadamia and rosehip oils along with extracts of witch hazel, calendula and papaya.

Innoxa Organic Hydrating & Anti-Ageing Serum 30ml $24.99

I use the Innoxa Organic Hydrating & Anti-Ageing Serum after cleansing and before moisturising. The serum is easily spread out on the skin and feels lightweight. It has a slight tacky feel to it that is reduced when moisturiser is put on top of it. I have read reviews that dislike the tacky feeling but I actually find it beneficial. The longer absorption time helps to soften any dry patches of skin and it also helps makeup adhere to the skin better. I have repurchased this product many times as I think it does add extra moisture to my skin that I don’t get when I just use moisturisers alone. Innoxa’s Organic Hydrating and Anti-Ageing Serum has an aloe vera base rosehip, sweet almond, jojoba and macadamia organic oils that add to the nourishing effects of this product.

Innoxa Organic Hydrating Daily Moisturiser 50ml $24.99

The Innoxa Organic Hydrating Daily Moisturiser has a lightweight feeling with an aloe vera base. I use this with the Anti-Ageing Serum, as the moisturiser alone doesn’t provide enough hydration for my drier skin, and it helps to reduce the tackiness of the Anti-Ageing Serum. The Daily Moisturiser absorbs quickly and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin at all. The Innoxa Organic Hydrating Daily Moisturiser has macadamia, camellia and rosehip oils, along with coconut oil and glycerin to boost skin hydration. It also contains vitamin E, organic shea and cocoa butter for skin elasticity and fine lines. I usually react to products that contain cocoa but I have had no issues with the products in this line that have cocoa.

Innoxa Organic Replenishing Night Creme 50ml $24.99

The Innoxa Organic Replenishing Night Creme is an organic aloe vera based moisturiser with organic sweet almond, avocado, jojoba, macadamia and rosehip oils. I’ve never fully understood why there is a need for separate night and day moisturisers but I wanted to use the range in the way it was intended. It works just as well as the Hydrating Daily Moisturiser, the only difference I can see is the scent with the Night Creme having a stronger lavender smell. The Replenishing Night Cream and Daily Moisturiser do have different ingredients so there is a reason to use both of them, as you will get different benefits, but I personally think you can easily use just one of the moisturisers along with the rest of the range.

Innoxa Organic Brightening Eye Creme 15ml $19.99

I have repurchased the Innoxa Organic Brightening Eye Creme many times now. It comes in a little squeeze tube with a narrow nozzle so that you can place the product where it’s needed and not squeeze too much out at one time. It has an organic aloe vera base with organic avocado, sweet almond, grape seed, rosehip, olive and macadamia oils. It moisturises the eye area without irritating or causing milia like some heavy eye creams can do. I haven’t seen much of a difference with fine lines, but I don’t have many of them, so I wasn’t expecting any results with that. I have however found that it does brighten the eye area. My chronic illness means that I am always exhausted which means I have permanent dark circles. I have tried a lot of other eye creams and none of them worked. I can see an immediate brightening effect as soon as I apply the Innoxa Organic Brightening Eye Creme and I think it has helped reduce some of the darkness over a longer period of use. My dark circles are really dark so the cream doesn’t take them away completely but it helps enough so that makeup can do the rest of the job. I don’t put many products on my eyelids as that is the area I get eczema the most, but I can use this cream there and haven’t had any issues with eczema flaring because of this product.

Innoxa Organic Purifying Facial Scrub 75ml $19.99

The Innoxa Organic Purifying Facial Scrub was released after the initial launch of the range, but I picked it up as soon as I found out about it. My skin is too sensitive for most physical exfoliants so I was hesitant to try it. I usually end up with very red, irritated and sometimes sore skin from physical exfoliants, but thankfully not with this one. I use it once every week in the shower and don’t rub my skin too hard, but I have seen a benefit from using it that way. It has decreased some of the texture on my skin without irritating it in the process. If you don’t have sensitive skin, then you could use it more often than I do. The Innoxa Organic Purifying Scrub contains organic papaya extract, sweet almond, argan, jojoba and macadamia oils along with Agrashell, the natural exfoliator.

Innoxa Organic Nourishing Hand Creme 75 ml $14.99

The Innoxa Organic Nourishing Hand Creme contains organic aloe vera, coconut oil, cocoa and shea butter as well as organic camellia oil. It is a nice hand cream that absorbs quite quickly so you don’t transfer the product onto everything you touch. It does help to moisturise the drier parts on my hands, but I prefer hand creams to have jojoba and almond oil in them to help with nail health too. This is the only product from the range that I haven’t repurchased as I own so many hand creams, so I haven’t needed to purchase one in a long time.

Innoxa Organic Skincare Hydrating & Anti-Ageing Serum Review
Innoxa Organic Hydrating & Anti-Ageing Serum

I love the citrus scent of this range, it is a citrus base with some lavender notes. The Replenishing Night Creme has a stronger lavender scent so I don’t like that one as much, but it certainly doesn’t put me off the product. I really like the pump packaging that the moisturisers and serums come in, it’s easy to use and sturdy (I drop products regularly, so products that aren’t easily broken are good in my books). I often have problems with products that contain lavender, cocoa and coconut but I haven’t had any issues with this line despite those ingredients being included in it. My skin is very sensitive, so the biggest problem I have with skin care products is that they irritate my skin, but the Innoxa Organic range has been great to my skin. I used the range by itself for 6 months last year, using WotNot wipes when I had eczema rather than the Cleansing Gel. Since then, I have always been reviewing new products but I still keep all of these stocked in my skincare cupboard. I use the Hydrating and Anti-Ageing Serum and the Brightening Eye Cream the most, and I’ve repurchased both products many times over. Innoxa claim that this range is good for all skin types and I can see that being the case, it worked for me when I had combination skin with an oily t-zone in summer and works for me now in the middle of winter when I have much drier skin. I add some sort of facial oil before I apply the serum in winter to help combat the dryness, but I don’t use anything extra in summer. The range is well priced and easily available. You can get it on the Innoxa website and in stores at Priceline, Myer and some Pharmacies. I often stock up when there is a sale on them so that I can get an even better deal. Have you tried any of the Innoxa Organic products?

Love, Alinta

    I had heard that Innoxa had launched an organic skincare range. I most like the sound of the serum with aloe vera and all those beautiful oils in it.

    • Alinta McMurdo 29/08/2016 at 4:32 pm

      Yeah the serum is my fave, especially in winter when I’m more prone to getting dry and sometimes flaky. Priceline often have sales on the innoxa skincare ranges so I always stock up then 🙂

      • Angela Linhart 18/09/2016 at 3:38 pm

        Yes, I always keep my eyes peeled for sales on my fave products.

    • It’s been 6.5 weeks since my first Pfizer vaccination and 3.5 since my second, but I still feel like death warmed up. This isn’t surprising. My immunologist, GP and I all knew I would suffer, but that doesn’t make it easier to deal with. This isn’t a covid vaccine specific reaction, I react to all vaccines in the same way. I was out of action for 2 weeks after my meningococcal vaccine last December and most people don’t have any problems with that vax. My vaccine reactions are specific to only me, because of my unique immune deficiencies. My immunologist has never come across anyone else with the combination of immune deficiencies that I have. Unfortunately, one of my worse deficiencies is that of Memory B Cells, which means I don’t make immunity to many vaccines, and when I do, it doesn’t last for long. I still get vaccinated despite this, because it matters. So the point of this post - please get your covid vaccination when you are eligible to. Many vulnerable people like myself are relying on herd immunity and we’re just not going to get there if everyone doesn’t do their part. I didn’t get a pretty sticker but the potential of covid antibodies is better than any sticker.

    • I think I’ve made it pretty obvious that I care about Indigenous rights as well as the environment. So I am particularly interested in how Indigenous people want to combat climate change because climate change action desperately needs to be decolonised. 
Unfortunately, those who are the least responsible for climate change are the ones who ones who will suffer the most, and many Indigenous people will be more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change because of colonisation. Indigenous people and their knowledge are frequently left out of climate discussions and that needs to change. My climate change uni subject focuses on exactly that this week. 
For a long time I’ve wanted to post about this sort of thing but I haven’t known where to start. I have no idea where the level of environmental and climate knowledge is at with the general public so I would love if you could let me know how much you know about it. Then at least I have a place to start. 
Also, thanks for sticking by me, it has been very hard to get through this subject whilst going through all my health stuff plus vaccines. I have my second vax on Thursday and a few more weeks of uni and then I’ll be around more often. 
Oh and don’t forget to show up to the climate strike on Friday 😊

    • Here are the ring details as promised. I think you all knew that my ring was going to be ethical in some way. It wouldn’t be me otherwise, would it? I’ve followed @ethicaljewelleryaustralia for years now, so I’ve known for a long time that I would want them to make a ring for me. It’s something that I will be wearing everyday, so I want it to represent my values. So the ring is handmade by #EthicalJewelleryAustralia in the design I wanted. It’s a round diamond with a four prongs that look like little petals. It’s made with recycled platinum and a lab diamond. Diamond and metal mining have a lot of negative social and environmental impacts, plus a lab diamond is far more affordable than a traditionally mined diamond, which means you can reduce your impact on people, the planet and your hip pocket. I hope lab grown diamonds are the choice of the future, as it is far better for human rights and the environment to make a diamond in a lab using renewable energy, than it is to mine them from the ground, using fossil fuels and unethical labor - just look into blood diamonds if you want to know how bad it can get. I also plan on trying to have a more ethical wedding too. I’ve already found a carbon neutral venue, but I’ve got lots of research to do on everything else. Let me know if you have any ideas for a sustainable wedding.

    • With it being #EarthDay, I thought I would share some on my sustainable cleaning products. Everyone has to clean, but supermarket cleaning products don’t tend to be very eco-friendly. Here I’ve got my @ecomaxbrushes Bottle brush which is made from coconut waste products and can be composted at the end of its life - it will just leave the wire which can be recycled. There’s my Safix biodegradable scrub pad made from organic coconut fibers which can be composted when you are finished with it. And @retrokitchenaustralia biodegradable dish cloth in a cute dog print. It’s made from cotton and cellulose and can be composted when worn out. I use them with the @koalaeco Natural Multipurpose Kitchen Cleaner which is cruelty free, vegan and palm oil free and comes in 100% post consumer recycled bottles that can be recyclable when finished. I get the big refill bottles and just fill up my spray bottle. I bought all the above from @floraandfaunaau and they’re actually having 15% off eco items today, so all of these are discounted. Don’t forget to use my #floraandfaunaau affiliate code on my blog if you ever make a purchase, it helps me out. There’s lots of other ways to make regular household chores better for the environment. It can feel overwhelming to charge, but just start with small steps. When one product runs out you can replace it with a more sustainable option. One of the last things I need to change is is my laundry detergent so I’m thinking I’ll try @thedirtcompany one. I would love to hear what you think of their products if you’ve tried them. Also let know what eco swaps you’ve made in your home so that I can get more ideas. #EcoSwaps #LoveAlinta

    • I have some news. I’m engaged! As a kid/teen I never thought this would happen as I didn’t believe in love - then I got sick and worried that no one would see past my illnesses. But I have found someone who loves me for me, faults, illnesses and all and I can’t wait to marry him. 
We spent yesterday afternoon attempting to take our own engagement photos in the yard with a tripod and this is the result. Having a photographer would be so much easier but my immune system wouldn’t appreciate that. 
Oh and I’ll tell you all about my ring in another post as I designed it ☺️#engagedtomybestfriend #lovealinta

    • It’s been a while since I posted makeup, so here’s some makeup 🙃 the @meccamax Off Duty BB Cream made it into my 2020 faves blog post, and it’s still my favourite base to use on the rare occasion that I put makeup on. I’ve just been too tired to wear makeup the last couple of months. The #meccamax Off Duty BB Cream is cruelty free and vegan. It however only comes in 5 shades. I use the lightest shade Vanilla, which has a good undertone for me, but I have to mix it with the same amount of white concealer to make it light enough to use. @MeccaMaxima have said they will extend the shade range of their home brands for years now, but they still don’t sell a single base shade that I could use by itself, and I’m sure that’s the same for dark skin tones. The other criticism I have of this product is the packaging. The lack of pump makes it hard to control the amount that comes out, and I would really prefer if it were in glass as that would be easier to recycle. The actual cream itself is amazing though. The formula works so well on my skin. It’s easy to blend with a brush and doesn’t cake up or feel heavy. Have you tried this BB cream? Do you have another favourite cruelty free and vegan BB cream? #meccabeauty #crueltyfreebeauty #veganbeauty #lovealinta

    • It has been a long week here. It’s my uni mid semester break, but it hasn’t been a break at all as I’ve spent the whole week writing things for my NDIS application. I’ve written 5000 words so far and spent far more money than I should have to to access support that I need. I’m trying to get my application in before the independent assessments start. If you don’t know, the federal government is trying to force independent assessments on people applying for or reviewing their NDIS plans. They have had a huge amount of feedback explaining how bad this will be for disabled people, but they just don’t care. Disabled people are going to go without the care that they need because this government is completely ableist. Non-disabled people really need to be speaking up about this right now, because the fed government is too ableist to listen to disabled people. Allies are really needed at times like this, so please show up.

    • My chronic illness health planning blog post is up now at lovealinta.com (clickable link in bio). Managing multiple complex chronic illnesses is like having a full time job (that I don’t get paid to do), so I need all the help I can get to keep everything organised. In this picture you can see how I keep track of my appointments each month using the @chasingplannerpeace Colourful Month on Two Pages inserts and @pmdstickers. It helps with pacing to know exactly what I have coming up when, and makes sure I don’t forget to show up to any appointments. I’ve had so many appointments over the last month, plus I’m back at uni, so my body is extremely unhappy with me right now - but that’s just life when you have a long list of illnesses and specialists to go with them. Check out my blog post and let me know which inserts would help you the most with your health/medical planning. Do you have any planning tips for other chronically ill and disabled people? *press sample

    • Sending my love to everyone who has had a rough couple of weeks because of what it happening in Aus politics right now. Please prioritize your self care, it’s more important than ever at the moment. By self care, I don’t just mean applying a face mask and doing nothing else. I mean finding genuine ways to reduce the anxiety and/or depression that recent events have triggered. That might mean doing mindfulness, meditation, journaling or exercise. You can also talk to your doctor about medications that can help. Taking medication is not a sign of weakness, it’s just another tool that you can use to help. Coping is different for everyone, you need to find what works for you. The thing that has helped me the most is therapy. I have been in therapy for many many many years now, but the one thing that really helped my PTSD was EMDR. There are other techniques that can be used for PTSD too. If you’re in Melbourne, the CASA house, run via the Women’s hospital offers free services specifically for survivors of sexual assault. They also run a 24 hour counseling and support line - 03 9635 3610 that you can call any time.

      Sending my love to everyone who has had a rough couple of weeks because of what it happening in Aus politics right now. Please prioritize your self care, it’s more important than ever at the moment. By self care, I don’t just mean applying a face mask and doing nothing else. I mean finding genuine ways to reduce the anxiety and/or depression that recent events have triggered. That might mean doing mindfulness, meditation, journaling or exercise. You can also talk to your doctor about medications that can help. Taking medication is not a sign of weakness, it’s just another tool that you can use to help. Coping is different for everyone, you need to find what works for you. The thing that has helped me the most is therapy. I have been in therapy for many many many years now, but the one thing that really helped my PTSD was EMDR. There are other techniques that can be used for PTSD too.
