Oil-to-milk cleanser fans will adore this hemp-rich, botanically-powered Beauty Shortlist Awards 2023 winner - it’s a genuine game-changer, sweeping off all makeup (including the eye area) but it does much more. Natural retinoids boost cell turnover, antibacterial antioxidant hero rosemary balances and cleanses, while native New Zealander kawakawa leaf helps heal, strengthen and alleviate irritation. So if your skin doesn’t get along with a lot of cleansers, this is one to try soon.

Hark & Zander’s nature-powered and Beauty Shortlist award-winning skincare range flies the flag for this sector of the beauty industry - extra marks for the brand’s circular and sustainable packaging mission, too.
I kept coming back to this beautiful cleanser. It’s rich and soothing on the skin, whilst gently, thoroughly cleansing. It leaves skin feeling really nourished and nurtured, plus the scent is delightfully moreish!
Their policies seem authentic and genuine. There has been as much consideration for what’s in it as well as what isn’t! Steadfastly pursuing local manufacture is also always so impressive (and something I think consumers are only increasingly connecting with and appreciating).

Using this product is such a beautiful experience! It smells absolutely lovely and gives a little moment of spa-like experience. It does a great job of breaking down my makeup and sunscreen and leaves my skin feeling really soft!
It’s great to read that Hark Zander has really thought out their choice of packaging and materials to reduce their impact. I’m also excited to know that they’re working towards being a B-Corp business!
I love that this contains hemp oil, it is such a healing and beneficial oil for all skin types. It’s also lovely that this is a local brand with ingredients sourced locally too!
The HempTonic Face Oil was so lightweight and absorbed quickly into my skin without leaving any greasy residue. I also have to acknowledge their incredible packaging. Not only is the packaging sustainably made in recyclable materials but the box is truly a work of art! It was such a unique and welcome surprise when I opened the box which I really appreciated.
I also love that they have used natural fibre labels with removable adhesive so I can easily remove the label before recycling the bottle. They have taken no shortcuts to go above and beyond to ensure that every piece of the product has been thoughtfully sourced and can be respectfully disposed of. I love that they use Carbon Positive Hemp and can’t wait for them to get B-Corp certification!

The bright blue and orange packaging of this HempTonic face oil is incredibly creative and fun – putting a smile on your face and lifting your spirits instantly. What’s more is the beautiful selection of seed oils and ylang ylang scent left me daydreaming of tropical islands. The oil is highly functional as both a cleanser and moisturising oil and could be used by those with even the most sensitive of skin.
I also love that Hark Zander is committed to making 100% natural products that are kind to people and the planet and are produced locally too. I am also impressed that the company is looking into becoming B-Corp certified.
This face oil has good ingredients, absorbency, feel and a natural smell with fun colours. The brand’s three guiding principles are also great!
I was given your night crème as a gift and just absolutely love it. I had previously been using another brand with retinol in it but I now prefer my Hark & Zander product. My skin feels really nurtured and the lavender fragrance is so calming just before bed. My husband also tried the night crème and is just as impressed. His rosacea is less flared and he reports his skin as feeling softer and healthier. Thanks!
Thank you so much for your kind words - we are so pleased that you're enjoying the night crème. We love the lavender scent too! H&Z x
Beautiful products, was a bit skeptical at first as have used other NZ branded products, but I love the cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer and calming face oil rolling.
Skin is soft and suple, no break outs.
Thank you Kim. Your feedback means the world to us! H&Z x
I absolutely love the smell and texture this oil leaves on my body. Been using it for a month now. It's subtle yet elegant. So thankful for been the lucky winner of this product I shared some bottles with family and friends. Thank you so much for your lovely product.
Thank you for your lovely review Dairne - we are so pleased you and you family are lovely them! H&Z x
I have just turned 72 and thought I will treat myself by trying out your products. Since using the facial products my skin feels and looks great. Am loving using your products. And most of all doing wonders for my very sensitive skin.
I've tried a lot of cleansers over the years and nothing beats the H&Z cleanser. I've been using it since it was launched a couple years ago and I've never looked back. A little goes a long way, I love how it foams ever so slightly when mixed with water and my skin feels hydrated but not oily, considering it's an oil cleanser, it's pretty impressive. I love the subtle smell, that makes you feel like you're nurturing your skin with goodness and no nasties. Buy this product! You won't regret it.
Thanks for you review Mel! This cleanser just won Gold in Australia's Clean + Conscious awards, and Editors choice award. It also won UK's Beaty Shortlist Best Cleanser, and Beauty editors choice. So you are in good company with you glowing review :-) We really appreciate your feedback and love that you are loving our range. Enjoy the glow!
