In 1990, Lynn Kirkland obtained an herbal diploma and started making natural remedies from the family home in rural Manawatu, New Zealand. The demand for her natural and effective products flourished and in 1993, The Herb Farm, a wholly family owned business, was founded to continue formulating 100% natural skin care and healthcare products free from unpleasant synthetics and chemicals.
The Herb Farm belief in Herbs & Nature to Create Formulas that Work
For over 25 years, The Herb Farm has been formulating 100% natural products and each unique formulation has been lovingly created to help solve specific skin problems and concerns for their customers.
Herbs and their healing properties are at the core of The Herb Farm products as nature knows best. Many of the fresh herb ingredients are grown in their own garden with their fresh essence harvested at the right time and infused into Lynn’s formulations. Other herbs and plant ingredients that can’t be grown themselves are carefully sourced from like-minded companies who share their vision.
The Herb Farm premium products are formulated for 3 main skin types:
- Normal (including sensitive skin)
- Oily & Combination Skin
- Ageing Skin
Calendula & Marshmallow Softening Cleanser | $49 (200 ml)
This luxurious creamy cleanser is packed full of essential oils to effectively cleanse, softens, hydrates and nourished the skin. As I have dry skin, I find that this creamy cleanser works very well for me as my skin feels really soft and smooth after every wash. The uplifting scent of essential oils makes it a delightful experience for me. The cleanser also promotes skin cell turnover through advanced pore cleansing.
Calendula Extract – Contains carotenoids, which keeps your skin looking youthful.
Marshmallow Extract – Speeds up cell regeneration while keeping the skin supple.
Radiance Boost Facial Serum | $59 (20 ml)
This light and easily absorbed water-based facial serum contains nature’s super skin food, the Elderberry Extract, which is high in bioflavonoids to defend the skin against environmental stress, pollution, free radicals and seasonal changes. The serum helps to even out skin tone and pigmentation to target dull, tired and dry skin.
Directions: Gently pat the serum around the eye area and gently massage the serum over the rest of the face and neck area.
Revitalising Face Mask | $39 (50 ml)
The face mask is formulated with rich clays and seaweed extract to effectively detoxify, removes impurities, softens and plumps the skin, and also provide valuable nutrients and minerals for a healthy skin. The face mask is suitable for all skin types.
White & Pink Clay – Gentle yet effective to deeply cleanse and detoxify skin.
Waihi Bush Organic Flaxseed Oil – Rich in nutrients essential for a glowing, radiant skin.
Directions: Apply mask to a cleansed face, neck and décolletage area and avoid applying too close to the eye and lip area. Rinse off after 10 minutes.
Although using a sheet mask might be more convenient for many, a wash-off face mask is able to cleanse and detoxify the skin deeper for a radiant, supple skin. This has become my current favourite face mask!
