i feel like i’m following you around the skincare forum at the moment :chuckle:
i just checked out their website. i have heard of this brand, but not tried it before - my initial thoughts are that while the products look like they would be lovely to use, they don’t appear to be as high tech or use as active ingredients as the other 2 you have been investigating.
the products also don’t have very long shelf life i assume because of the packaging - ren products last at least 9 months because of the pump packaging they use which doesn’t let air in (and travel very well to!) so i guess if you have to repurchase the sanctum products every 3 - 5 months, the cost would at least even out…
valid points made.
I love the products that sanctum have on offer, great natural cleansing and moisturising products, basic I know but thats I all I look for. I simply can not afford a brand like REN and I can’t access the brand here in New Zealand, unless I order online and charges for international shipping is one thing I can’t do. Simplicite are so much more $$$ in NZ, so that would be saying well why can’t I just continue with my current fave dr hauschka… student, budget, reality! … I have discovered that Sanctum is unavailable in NZ, so I [U]might [/U] just buy the essentials. Give it a whirl.
Otherwise we had considered Kosmea for my Mum, but I think shes jumping on the dr hauschka band wagon at the moment replacing any products she using with Dr Hauschka… her faves are the toned day cream and eye cream. So I might give Kosmea a go, and it is available in a couple of local pharmacies and health shoppes.
Living Nature maybe???
Simplicite too expensive
Dr Hauschka $$$ love it to bits though! when I’m back into full time employment I’ll be back to this brand
REN unavailable in NZ
Sanctum cheapie - sounds so good, just what I amlooking for a change but again unavailable in NZ so it would be a one off.
A’kin hit and miss with products …
Maybe kosmea would be a solid contender all round … not too $$$, available in nz, natural alternative, good sized products, basic not fancy routine required: cleanse, moisturise and exfoliate.
I’ve tried so many brands in the last 5 or 6 years but I wouldn’t dare consider using anything commerical/chemical… if I can absolutely help it coz the only product I do rebuy is clinique super city block the only sunscreen I haven’t reacted to!
