A nourishing moisturizer that hydrates skin with good-for-you ingredients


Gentle formula contains 100% natural ingredients


May take longer use to see substantial improvement in skin

I'm in my mid-50s, and I feel lucky I have had the pleasure of using the Moana Moisturiser (NZ$99 or $78 USD in the shop) for the past four weeks. It comes in an elegant pump bottle, dispensing the exact right amount of light creamy white lotion to cover face and neck, with a smidge left over for the back of my crepey hands. The first time I used it, I noticed a bit of a tingle and tightening, but nothing radical. The odor is clean, dissipates quickly and is pleasant while it lasts; it’s very natural and not perfume-like or fake at all. And this is the big selling point with this and all products of this line: 100% natural, bio-organic actives, overall mostly organic ingredients. Their claim to fame is the red seaweed, the literature states. Their website is full of lovely pictures of fruits, seaweeds, other plant life and vistas of New Zealand, where the products are created.

I really like the product. But I don’t believe four weeks may be long enough to make a call on the effectiveness. My skin looks good, but it looked good before. I have noticed a slight improvement in tone, but the moisture level seems about the same as with what I was using previously. I do notice a bit more “radiance,” which is one of the aspects the product promises. What would make me buy this product is the purity of it, and the ease of use. It seems very well made and completely benign; it has done no harm and is very gentle. Maybe it will be a slower move to more noticeable effects, but I do like it. The price seems, if not inexpensive, certainly not off the charts like some products. I know there might be more powerful heavy-hitters, but there is something to be said for the “slow-cosmetics” movement: gentle, natural, do-no-harm. I am willing to let age creep slowly and gently into my visage using products of this nature.
