We are very keen to encourage you to look after your body and the environment here in the clinic. This is why we support Miessence products. Who doesn’t like organic, fair trade products that are good for both your body and gentle on our world. The key is whether they actually work though… Rest assured we only promote products that have proven results as well as being kind to your body. We’ve tested a rage of the popular products from Miessence so you can find out more about them beyond their pretty packaging!
You may have noticed our packaging has changed. We’ve tracked down biodegradable options that are both beautiful and practical, even our bubble wrap is biodegradable! If you look on the back of your products, you are able to recycle these also (but we highly recommend using all the superb products first)!
Desert Flower Shampoo – Miessence Product Review
“So, it took some time but I’m glad I tried this. The desert flower shampoo was weird. It didn’t lather and it made my hair incredibly knotty. So, I didn’t really like it at first, but then (after I used it) I read the instructions… 🙂
Okay, so the first wash will not lather, but the second wash does a little. This is because it is sulphate free.
It made my hair feel squeaky clean. Super, super clean. I followed the Desert Flower Shampoo with the Shine Herbal Hair Conditioner and it instantly took the knotty feeling away.
Now I am naturally blonde and have oily, limp hair. (Lucky me!) My hair has to be washed every day, and I usually use another brand.
I must admit, I did not have high hopes for the Miessence Shampoo, but it definitely surprised me. It made my hair really, really shiny and added volume, which was an added bonus. I even didn’t have to wash my hair the day after. I am now using it on my kids, because I feel as though it is a really good choice for them as they only really wash their hair once or twice a week and if I can avoid using chemicals on them, then I definitely should.
I’m so impressed I am now using it on my kids
When you read the ingredients on the Miessence shampoo, it is all plant based and no chemicals at all.
I actually was so impressed with the brand that I decided to get the soap and the toothpaste for my whole family. It has certainly made me more aware of what I was putting on my kids’ bodies and the potential long term effects of chemicals.”
Tahitian Breeze Deodorant – Miessence Product Review
“I often wondered how people in the early centuries put up with the constant abundance of body odour surrounding them. I can’t imagine how smelly it must have been. After doing a little research, (my google history looks very strange) it’s actually quite interesting. It turns out in the dark ages, the church that was followed saw bathing as evil, and physicians believed that water opened up the pores of the skin to allow disease to infect and spread. For our European cousins, bathing actually didn’t become mainstream until the early 1800’s. The Egyptians, on the other hand, bathed regularly and used oils and aromatic plants like lemongrass and rose to swipe their armpits, and they used ostrich eggs too. That would have been very difficult trying to walk around with a big ostrich egg under each arm without cracking it, no?… okay. The first cosmetic deodorant was produced in the United States in 1888 and the first roll on deodorant in 1952, invented by an innovative woman, inspired by the ballpoint pen. Enough of the history lesson! Sorry to bore.
If you happen to have the gene ABCC11, you’re a lucky duck!
Apparently you suffer from very little, if any body odour. But most of us enjoy the delights at times of the Apocrine glands (even that name sounds off) secreting fluid, combining with skin bacteria and Bob O’Donnell is your uncle, B.O.
I have been using the Miessence Tahitian Breeze Deodorant for a few months now, Initially I didn’t have a lot of confidence with it. Because it’s organic, I couldn’t get my head around how it could work effectively with just natural ingredients. During my smelly armpit research, I discovered that the body kind of becomes addicted to deodorants with aluminium etc in them, it kills off not only the bad bacteria, but the good bacteria too, so when you change to a natural deodorant, you have to allow time for the pretty bacteria to return and unleash all their splendour. This explained how initially it wasn’t the greatest, and I thought I would have to go back to a chemical filled one, but because I would always forget to purchase another, I had to continue using the Miessence deodorant, and eventually I realised, all was good with the armpits. I now have total confidence in it and I really like the subtle smell of the Tahitian Breeze.
Miessence is the world’s first certified organic skin/body care company, and Australian owned to boot, pretty impressive.”
InLiven Superfoods – Miessence Product Review
“I’ve been feeling run-down recently. My family has been swapping colds for months now. I decided this was a great time to get on top of my health. To actually take action and improve my body’s internal balance.
Having young kids and working has meant I don’t have a lot of ‘me’ time. I find my week is dedicated towards them, and there isn’t much energy left over. I also find I’m shopping for everyone else’s needs rather than my own. Buying what I know they’ll eat rather than a varied and balanced diet. There definitely aren’t leafy greens involved… my partner and 4 year old have objected one too many times.
Try Superfoods for an added nutrient boost
Thus I’ve decided to trial the InLiven superfoods as a part of this Miessence Product Review. I’ve tried them years ago and remember feeling energised by the end of the first week. Somehow, buying superfoods has become a ‘special extra’ rather than an essential. The taste leaves a lot to be desired. I drink them straight, just because I’m lazy and time poor at the moment. They’re actually really good to add to your morning smoothie though, it masks the taste.
After a week I’m really noticing the difference. Not only am I feeling more clear-headed, my sense of taste has changed. I’m actually craving my leafy greens and vegetables. My whole family is enjoying my healthier food. Without meaning to, I’ve cut back on my processed sugars, and don’t feel as drawn to them.
I’m definitely going to purchase more, but this time with the Vitality Pack – so I can get the full nutrient value that I feel my body has been missing. In my logical head I know I could just ‘eat a balanced diet.’ Looking at my hectic schedule though, I’d rather back that up with something I can do, no matter how busy and distracted I get.”
