If you aren’t sure which is the best face moisturiser for your skin? Or what your skin needs in a face moisturiser? Or how to even decide if your skin type is oily/dry/maturing/sensitive or combination;
The XY blend has been cleverly formulated so that it versatile to suits most skin types, including sensitive skin. But how can a moisturiser be for all skin needs you ask? It can when the pure plant ingredients selected are well known for their ability to work with your body to help it to naturally hydrate & regulate itself and sebaceous (oil) glands within our pores. We understand your skin may sometimes feel drier in Winter or air conditioning, oily in Summer or hot climates and also that sometimes when traveling (or limited space in your bathroom cabinet!) you just want a simple approach with one size fits most! Oh and we all want to slow the ravages of time, so it needs to address anti-ageing concerns as well. (btw i like to say rejuvenation or youth-ification) Eureka!
Bursting with skin loving oils, aloe vera & vitamins the XY blend ticks all the boxes. This blend aims to bring calm, hydration & balance to your skin. Australian sandalwood is a highly prized, viscous oil & excellent for regulating our oil glands; which is why it benefits so many skin types and conditions such as oily/dry/combination/sensitive/maturing or inflammation & redness. Energetically Australian sandalwood also brings calm, enhances confidence, it grounds & centres our nervous energy as well as balancing our skin. (to me it feels like a big hug from a wise old grandfather tree). Lavender is known as the “mother” herb she works hard & benefits so many needs. On our skin lavender is soothing, antiseptic & astringent to reduce bacteria and tighten skin. Don’t worry, we only use the French grown lavender with the freshest aroma (not old and musky like Grandma’s lavender talc!) Ylang ylang is an exotic Indonesian flower, she softens & balances. Frankincense has been used since ancient times in beauty to reduce fine lines wrinkles, benefiting dry skin, reducing scarring & supporting new cell growth. It also is known to smooth the flow of Qi (energy) and relieve anxiety/stress. Neroli comes from the delicate petals of the orange blossom flower. For our skin neroli is rejuvenating, exotic, uplifting, reduces wrinkles, boosts cellular repair, supports new cell growth & cell wall structure. Neroli is also said to elevate our mood & enhance creativity.Key ingredients: Australian sandalwood, lavender, ylang ylang, frankincense and neroli Skin feel: protected, hydrated, nourished, balanced, calmSuits: All skin types.

Perfect face cream

I'm a sucker for moisturisers with a subtle herbaceous aroma, which this one offers with its gentle hints of lavender, sandalwood and frankincense. Plus, the shea butter and almond oil base means this goes on smoothly without any trace of oiliness. Uplifting and thoroughly glow-enhancing.
MY SKIN FEELS INCREDIBLY SOFT AND SMOOTH
Posted by Debbie on 3rd May 2018
I found Rebecca's beautiful products a couple of years ago now. I love every one of them that I have tried but the one I cannot imagine living without is the XY day night face cream. Last year I moved from the Northern Beaches to the UK. In my suitcase I took 2 x100ml bottles (with more packed in the shipping. My husband has a business trip to Oz in a month and I have given specifics to bring back a large bottle. I use the XY cream every day and night. It is beautifully moisturising. It never clogs up pores. I never suffer from spots (which I used to with other way more expensive creams). My skin looks good for 50 and is incredibly soft and smooth. I don't have any brown spots and hardly any wrinkles. I take a couple of minutes day and night really enjoying the treat of putting this beautiful cream on my face. It smells amazing. I take time to just breathe in the smell and think about the goodness I am rubbing in to my face. I swear it affects my mood. I feel happier and more grounded afterwards. Thank you so much Rebecca :) xx
SO WONDERFUL I'M BACK FOR A SECOND BOTTLE
Posted by HEATHER on 20th Mar 2018
I have just placed my second order for Sattwa products. I first tried the XY face cream and it was so wonderful I'm back for my second bottle. It lasted about 8 months and I was using it twice a day. The lovely Rebecca has been so helpful with her recommendations and so I have also bought the Restore Facial Cleanser to try and the So Smooth Foaming Exfoliant. People often comment how young I look so I think these beautiful Sattwa products are doing their job. I also love that they are organic and contain no nasties.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND - OTHER MOISTURISERS FEEL LIKE PLASTIC NOW!
Posted by SARAH on 20th Mar 2018
I have been using Sattwa products for some time and love them. I currently live overseas, and have to make sure I don’t run out - as other moisturisers particularly feel like plastic on my skin now! A great range of beautiful and truly natural products, highly recommended.
FOR MEN TOO

My wife bought me this product as I was complaining of dry skin. Works well and doesn't leave my skin shiny and make me look 'soft' .
Love this too!!

This moisturiser is just so lovely to apply and has a lovely gentle smell. I glides on and soaks in beautifully into my skin. I can apply it and put on makeup either straight away or an hour later and it still applies perfectly. My skin is looking more radiant than it has in years. I use this night and day and feel extremely satisfied with it. I have only had it a week and I noticed a dramatic difference after the fist day. I would not believe this if it had not happened to me. I highly recommend this product and the cream cleaner. I won't be using department store skincare anymore. Goodbye Clinique, Estee Lauder and Lancome!!

I'm on to my third bottle. Nourishing effects last longer than comparable products. Smells beautiful. Good consistency of the cream
I Love this Product

I love this product as it keeps my dry skin moisturised and nourished. When applying the cream you can feel the difference and the smell is wonderful.
