My Thoughts: I've been using this for about 4 months now, and I'm quite loving it. It smells SO good. It cleanses pretty well, and does clean off makeup. It won't give the squeaky clean feeling, and doesn't have a super dryness feeling after cleansing. However, when I bought this, I wasn't very familiar with the ingredients. Now that I know a little bit more,  the ingredients are quite disappointing. Ingredients such as Cocamidopropyl Betaine (which is a strong lathering agent), DMEA (adjuster), and MSM (perservative), are pretty bad. If these ingredients were not in there (as I really want to go natural), I would definitely repurchase! I saw my skin improving so much! SAD....

My Thoughts: LOVE the smell! It smells so good! My boyfriend was like "what is that on your face, it smells so good". It WAS such a good moisturizer. I did not get any pimples since I used this moisturizer, and I was loving it UNTIL I found Emulsifying Wax in the ingredients. Same as the cleanser, I would definitely repurchase if these ingredients were not present in the product. It just made my skin feel so smooth! AGAIN...I'm disappointed by the ingredients =(


Sadly, I wouldn't recommend Nardo's Natural to anyone that wants to be 100% natural since it contains some "bad" ingredients. But I would recommend these products to anyone that is not 100% natural. I loved this skin line until the ingredients popped out to me and turned me down. I would be in hunt of new cleanser and moisturizer as soon as I'm done with Nardo's Natural.
