Olive Skin Serum

"My skin had much sun damage resulting in skin cancers. I had 180 spots taken off my face and my skin was left red and blistered. After 12 months my skin was completely healed. It was remarkable. There aren’t many products I’ll allow on my skin but I swear by this serum."

Michelle K.

"I have been using your skin [Olive Skin] serum for the past 3 years after my cancer surgery. The scar across my throat healed with next to no obvious signs that I had ever had surgery. I recommend your product to everyone who is amazed at how my throat has healed. Thank you for such a beautiful and amazing natural product range ….my surgery was 7 weeks before my wedding and I was very paranoid about anyone seeing the results of surgery."

- Bernadette

"I received Olive Skin Serum as a birthday gift my friend. I saw the amazing result on my face after using this product for two weeks, not only my face becomes very soft; I also have pimple scars that had been on my face for a long time but after using this serum, the scars are slowly healing and fading away, this product is a miracle. Thank you all at Botani who have made such a great product."

- Emily

"The [Olive] skin serum is lovely and so much finer and more moisturising than the rose hip oil I was using."

- Maree

"Having had prominent acne scarring for most of my adult life, picking in my adolescent years (guilty!!) – I have been absolutely amazed at the improvement of these scars since being given the Olive Skin Serum (Giftpack) at Christmas… and it’s only February!!! People have started to compliment my skin regularly, and for the first time in nearly 15 years, my skin now allows me to feel confident enough to not wear foundation in public all the time. This is a breakthrough product. …It has also helped my friend heal a scar a sporting accident many years ago – this product is really amazing!!!"

- J. Kim

"Thank you for recommending your Olive Skin Serum! My teenage daughter suffers extremely sensitive skin and Psoriasis on her face. We have tried numerous natural products which just seemed to make her skin worse. Within 2 days of using the serum, all the redness and peeling around her eyes was gone, her skin was smoother and looks the best it has in months. We are so very grateful for the time and advice you gave us."

- Kerrie

"My 13yo daughter has been battling with a skin condition for 1.5yrs now. I rang my herbalist to ask her for further help as I had tried other expensive herbal remedies and nothing had worked. She recommended Botani Olive Skin Serum and also made up a bach flower remedy for her to take internally. Within a fortnight my daughter’s skin is totally back to normal, no longer itchy, red and sore and she wore a shoestring dress for the first time to her school social, a big thing for a teenager, she loves using it. Your product has given my daughter confidence to wear dresses & shorts etc a lot others take for granted. We will continue to use this product and I am switching my normal moisturiser routine to Botani! We love it. Thank you Botani."

- Nikki

"Just thought I’d let you know that I get coffee the same place every day and the waitress told me on the weekend my skin looked great and what had I done. I had actually used the Olive Skin Serum as a makeup base. She is now going to get some. Thought you’d like the positive feedback. Tthanks."

- Linda

"I will admit it. Botani pretty much saved my life! Rescue Acne cream, Olive Skin Serum(best product ever) and Olive Repair Cream were all involved in curing my mild acne condition and burn marks as a result of dodgy clearasil products. This is only after 2 and half weeks of use. I expect that in a month's time, i will not be afraid to look people in the eye and go out in public. Even now i am doing that, which is great for my confidence. I honestly didn’t think there was a product out there for my oily fair skin complexion, but honestly Botani products do not clog my skin, burn my skin, itch my skin, annoy my skin, they do all of the opposite. At one stage i thought i had permanently destroyed my face, well i can now have faith that given another couple of weeks/months i will be able to look at myself and smile!"

- Male

"The 3 products I started out with were the Olive Soothing Cleanser, Olive Skin Serum (which is amazing) and the Boost Balancing Moisturiser. Today I bought your website the Olive Repair cream, Exfoliating Facial Cream and the Rescue Acne Cream (just in case!). I also love the simple design of your packaging and the glass bottles. The whole range has a medicinal feel but still looks luxurious enough, which is great for people like me who have always bought expensive stuff in amazing packages just because they look nice!"

- Kim

"As you know I have been a great supporter of the Botani products for many years, having sold them in pharmacy with many a satisfied customer. I can now add myself to this list. I recently had shoulder surgery (July 27th, 2006) and the wound had not been stitched, but merely “clipped” together. The surgeon was happy with his work (aren’t they all?), and said nothing further, leaving me with a four inch scar. I started applying Botani’s Olive Skin Serum twice daily immediately, and other than missing an application every now and again (I am human after all!), the incorporation of the scarred area into the surrounding tissue continues to astound me. The healing was rapid, and the scar is fading fast. I am still applying the Serum."

- Gerald

"I just wanted to tell you that I think your products are absolutely wonderful. I can’t believe how quickly they have made a difference to my skin. I’d given up thinking I could have really good skin – it had become dry and lifeless. Being in my 40’s this is a common problem I guess, so I just accepted it and thought my youthful looking skin had gone for good. I couldn’t believe that in less than a week of using the Olive Soothing Cleanser, Olive Skin Serum and Olive Repair Cream, I had soft, supple, moist skin again – it’s as though I’ve got my “18 year old skin” back again. You were right – using all three products together made a huge difference.
The best part is that I don’t need to use large amounts and as my skin gets softer and smoother, a smaller amount goes a long way. The other thing I like about your products is that there is no compromise on purity and I know that nothing I purchase your product range has anything harmful in it."

- Evelyn

"The Olive Skin Serum. It does amazing things for my skin! …. In Just a few days my skin has been glowing again! Thank You!!!…. The Serum is food for my skin."

"I have been using Botani Olive Skin serum for the past six weeks and since then my face has been eczema free for the first time in over 2 years. I have & tried every product and diet possible to get it under control and I am over the moon to find something that finally works."

Rescue Acne Cream

"Please never stop making the rescue acne cream! It’s the only product that has helped my breakout-prone skin since coming off the pill just over a year ago. I apply it under sunscreen and also find it helps mattify my skin throughout the day. It’s nice to know it’s…natural and Australian made.Thank you for making an excellent product."

"Your Rescue Acne Cream has restored my confidence and happiness. I have always had a fairly clear complexion, however, recently my whole face broke out, became extremely sensitive and irritated and I developed hundreds of bumps all over my forehead. I am about to get married so I was completely devastated. My mum bought me some Rescue Acne Cream last week and I haven’t looked back. The pimples are gone, the bumps are now smooth and my complexion is glowing. I love this product. I can’t thank you enough Botani!"

- Freya

"I am very grateful to have come across the Botani products and for all of Barbara’s hard work in developing the Botani range. I have been struggling with blemished, combination skin for years and these products have recently provided me with amazing results. I began using the Skin Rescue Kit and am now trying the Olive Cleansing Bar and Soothing Facial Mist. Only someone who has struggled with any kind of skin upset understands how it can affect your life. Thank you, I will be trying more of your products and of course recommending them too."

- Emma

Spirulina Salt Scrub

"I am very impressed by your products and look forward to trying more of them. I have thus far used the body scrub, (SPIRULINA SALT SCRUB) shower gel (PhytoBody Wash), and multi-purpose balm.(Olivéne Balm) I like the fact that they are not too highly fragranced with essential oils, as these can be irritating for those of us with sensitive skin, if over-used. I really like the philosophy and the fact that they you are Australian. Thank you."

- Natalie

"OMG!!! – THE SPIRULINA SALT SCRUB IS FREAKING FANTASTIC! I used it on my legs last night and it practically eliminated the eczema on them overnight – Unbelievable! I should have taken before and after shots!!!"

- Chantel

"The Best Body scrub – Botani Spirulina Salt Scrub. You must get your hands on this – it is the most invigorating, smoothing and refreshing scrub ever."

- Dhav

Boost Balancing Moisturiser

"I feel compelled to tell you about how amazing I think your products are! I am a 28 year old female, and with the stresses of balancing work and completing a PHD, I found my skin was the first thing to suffer. My nose and cheeks became so terribly dry and red, I began to notice broken capillaries at the skin surface and my pores became noticeably enlarged. My confidence was plummeting. In an attempt to fix my skin, I tried numerous (expensive!) products, including a recommended skin care system that cost me almost $200. In came BOTANI. At my wits end, I found your product in Priceline and decided I had nothing to lose in trying it out. I purchased the Boost Balancing Moisturiser – the best $26 I have ever spent! Initially, I felt that it wasn’t as hydrating as I would have liked, but I knew that results don’t come overnight. So I persisted with the product, and within two weeks, I began to see the difference. My skin felt more hydrated, the reddening had begun to subside, and now -3 months later- my skin looks and feels completely restored! Never again will I put expensive, chemical-laden products on my delicate skin."

- Leona

"It has been 5 days since I received samples of Purify Facial Cleanser & Boost Balancing Moisturiser.. I am so delighted with the changes on my face. My face is back to normal! Those red acne marks begin to fade. The remarkable one, there is no breakout during my menstrual period which it usually does! Although the oiliness after use of serum still persist, but it seems reducing."

- Chui

"Just a line to congratulate you on two of your products. The Purify Facial Cleanser and the Boost Balancing Moisturiser. I received a pack from the Women’s weekly and after using same for two weeks, was pleased with the results. As I am 92 years old, this gave me quite a lift; also friends have commented how fresh my skin looks. Also, I applied the moisturiser to one hand and patches of dry skin has disappeared. So once again congratulations for such good natural products and all Australia made."

- Mrs D Hanlon

"I would like you to know how wonderful I think your Boost Balancing Moisturiser is! It has visibly improved my skin tone and texture and I think it is a fantastic product. My skin does not feel oily and I rarely breakout in pimples. I was using Neutrogena before changing to Botani and I am glad I made the change!"

- Sue

"I have been using the Botani Exfoliating Facial Cream, Boost Balancing Moisturiser and Purify Facial Cleanser for the last 6 months or so and can say I wouldn’t look at buying any other brand of skincare. I am absolutely thrilled with the results! My combination type skin is clearer, smoother and glows! Having tried so many so-called ‘miracle’ products over the years my skin has never looked better than it does now. I am so satisfied and proud to know it is the way it is now without having used harsh chemical cleansers and synthetic products. It’s great to see such an innovative AUSTRALIAN company leading the way with such an affordable, environmentally friendly and effective portfolio of products. All the best and keep up the good work!"

- Jo

"Thanks so much. I love your products. I use the Purify Facial cleanser, the Soothing Facial Mist, Rescue Acne Cream and Boost Balancing Moisturiser. In the past I have used a number of expensive skincare products but your product gives me the best result (my skin has never been so good) and it’s so inexpensive, I really don’t understand how you manage to make your products so affordable. My beauty routine is now really simply and my skin is so healthy. I’m recommending your products to all my friends."

"Your products are absolutely FANTASTIC. I stopped using ***** (another brand) as your products are much better for my skin. My husband absolutely loves them he has very coarse facial hair and shaving leaves his skin irritated and dry. We both use the Purify Facial cleanser & the Boost Balancing Moisturiser. (he uses the Exfoliating Facial Cream, I think he needs the extra moisture) I have recently added to my Botáni collection and purchased the Soothing Facial Mist spray & Olive Repair cream. These products are also fantastic. My 30th Birthday is on Sunday and my husband (after a VERY subtle hint from me) is going to get me the new Rescue Eye Treatment & the Olive Soothing Cleanser so I can use it to remove my makeup. Can’t wait! Anyway your products are TERRIFIC and you have done Australia proud. Thank you Botani! Many Kind Regards."

"I started using the Purify Facial Cleanser and Boost Balancing Moisturiser over a month ago. Prior to using your products I have a history of pimples and in general just irritated sensitive skin that just never looks clear. Since using your products I have noticed a major improvement in my skin. My complexion is the healthiest it has been in years and your products do not irritate my skin at all. Thanks for your help and wonderful products."

- Megan

"I’ve been using your products for only 5 days but am already convinced of their quality. I walked into the local pharmacy and asked for a recommendation for locally produced, natural skin-care for my oily-combination skin. I was shown your product and bought Purify Facial cleanser and Boost Balancing Moisturiser. They feel so light and beautiful to use and my skin looks happier already! I look forward to visiting your shop soon and trying some more of your products. I’ve never stuck with one particular skin care range, but I think I’ve just found my long-term product range. Thanks for your lovingly crafted product."

- Gina

"Just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful Boost Balancing Moisturiser. I find that it’s the best moisturiser I have used for my skin. I have combination skin that suffers from mild acne – so I need a moisturiser that can both moisturise my occasionally flaky/dry patches as well as treat the skin so that it prevents acne breakouts. It’s really balanced – not too light and not too heavy. I enjoy the fresh smell – am allergic to strong fragrances so that’s something I really appreciate. In addition, it’s fantastic that you use pretty safe ingredients. I just wish I could find it in the stores! This is a fantastic product – I can’t go without it!"

- Cheryl

"So just writing to inform you that I really am incredibly impressed with your products, The serum [ together with the cleanser, Boost Balancing Moisturiser, and Rescue Acne Cream is amazing. Not only is it controlling my dermatitis, but my skin overall just looks more healthy, calm, and even more luminous. I was sceptical at first because the chemical laden products that I had bought from the pharmacy didn’t work as well as they should of, and now I am not a sceptic anymore!! I will be sure to recommend your products to other eczema and dermatitis sufferers because it worked for me, and will hopefully work for them!!!"

- Miri

"Josh is really happy with the way his skin feels, the moisturiser stops him from scratching his face to pieces at night. The eczema on his face and neck feels calmer. All the ingredients in the Boost Balancing Moisturiser is what Eczema suffers need l am so glad we have found something for his skin."

- Michelle

"I first experienced adult acne when I had an adverse reaction to a contraceptive injection that was popular when I was in my early 20′s. My body never really recovered from the imbalance of hormones and the cocktail of contraceptive pills that I had taken for over a decade to try and keep my skin clear. When I finally decided to stop taking the “Pill” my skin erupted!
Then began the quest for clear skin. Regular facials, regular exercise, clean water, no sugar in my diet, every other facial product on the market- you name, I tried it! I even meditated on having clear skin and did some spiritual healing based around accepting the skin I was in!
It was improving, but I still felt self conscious. A friend recommended I try the latest product for acne (ProActive), which helped clear my skin a lot, but given that it bleached the colours out of my towels and dried my skin out so much it flaked- I was horrified to think what chemicals I was putting on my skin! Then, just when I was about to give up, I found one last box of Botani Purify Facial cleanser and Boost Balancing Moisturiser sitting on a shelf in my local health food shop. I thought- “I have nothing to lose”… so I took my chances and took it home to try.
I loved the packaging, the smell, the feel of the product and the fact that your products are Australian made from NATURAL plant ingredients, by a group of people who are earth and animal friendly and creating a more conscious approach to skin care. The best part was your product actually gave me RESULTS! My skin cleared more and more with each day I used it. Now, it FEELS amazing. It is hydrated and for the first time ever, not excess in oil. The acne has cleared and my skin is actually smooth… without the bumps of pimples!
Friends and family are commenting on how clear my skin is. I am so proud to be in my skin now. I LOVE your product and am so grateful to you for taking the time and effort to create a wholesome product that has changed the health of my skin and my self confidence with it. Thanks for taking the time to read my heartfelt gratitude to you. I am so appreciative of your products and hope that you continue to be supported by the Australian public so you can continue to create a wonderful holistic product."

Olivene Repair Balm

"I had to email you and tell you the success I had using the Olivene Repair Balm on my 4 1/2-month-old baby. He has very bad cradle cap but also dermatitis on his scalp. So yesterday I found my tub of Olivene Repair Balm and within 24 hours the results are amazing I have attached a before and after photo just so you can see how well your product has worked. Thanks for creating such an amazing skincare range!
