Product Review: Penny Badger Botanicals

Thursday, April 19, 2012

At the Vitality Show, I was lucky to meet so many women entrepreneurs. Penny Badger was one of them. She has sensitive skin and found the chemical-filled products available in stores aggravated her skin. She set out to develop her own line of natural and organic products using natural botanicals.

Remember- I have skin allergies and have turned to natural and organic brands to help nourish my skin.

Penny graciously gave me three samples to try out- facial serum, natural combined skin lotion and Rosacea moisturizer. (You can get free samples from Penny too by clicking here)

My friend who has Rosacea is going to test out the Rosacea lotion after she gives birth to her baby this summer. Her hormones have been clearing up her skin and she wants to give an accurate review. Check back in the late summer for her story.

I set up a regime of using the serum at night on my face before I went to bed and the moisturizer on my face in the morning. Believe it or not, I have never used a 'serum' before and was worried I would break out from the oil. It went on smoothly (a little went a long way so I just dipped my finger tip in the pot) and the serum didn't cause a break out at all. Also, my pillow case never looked oily or stained. My husband said the very faint smell of the serum reminded him of cricket bats and linseed oil. Personally, the fragrance reminded me of almonds.

In the mornings, the lotion went on smoothly and was very light. The lotion I normally use is formaldehyde-free but feels heavier and almost greasy compared to Penny's. I did need to reapply the lotion in a few spots after the first application. I think this was due to applying a minimal amount in the first instance. My skin never broke out with the lotion. At the end of the day, my face wasn't too shiny.

Overall, I loved Penny's facial serum and combo skin moisturizer. In person, she is lovely and believes 100% in the products she has created. Think of these as an investment in high quality products that will make you radiate and age gracefully. She also treads lightly on the Earth, using recycled packaging products and renewable resources.

You can see all the products Penny has to offer but visiting her website:

Penny Badger Botanicals did not pay me for this review. They graciously gave me these products and all opinions are honest and my own. If you have a product you would like me to review, please contact me
