The Natural Benefits of Caithy Organics Skincare: Product Review
With the sheer amount of skincare brands out in the market, it can be hard to find what products will actually work for you. The ingredient lists on the back aren’t much help since it’s difficult to pronounce most of them, much less know what they actually are. That’s why Caithy Organics is such a breath of fresh air.
What makes Caithy Organics different?
Caithy Organics is a New Zealand-based skincare brand that’s all about creating pure and organic products that will feed and nourish your skin with the best that nature has to offer. New Zealand is known for its beautiful and diverse natural landscapes, and many of its native plants contain incredible properties that will work wonders on your skin. Thus, it only makes sense to nurture your skin with these natural ingredients rather than synthetic ones.
Caithy Organics sources its ingredients from New Zealand’s forests and lands to create the purest and safest skincare products possible. What’s even better is that the brand was started by people who struggled with skin issues themselves, so they truly and intimately know the struggles of trying to achieve clear skin. After finding out how beneficial organic and natural ingredients were, Caithy Organics was created to share those secrets with the rest of us.
Caithy Organics has generously sent me some of their products to try out, so I wanted to share how I use and incorporate them into my daily skincare routine.
Instant Hydrating Mist Toner
After cleansing my face with a gentle facial cleanser (I use CeraVe’s Hydrating Facial Cleanser), I tried out Caithy Organic’s Instant Hydrating Mist Toner. This product is great for any time of the day when your skin needs a quick refresher, and the spray application makes it easy to apply. My favorite thing about the mist toner is the floral smell it has. Caithy Organics doesn’t use synthetic fragrances, so the pleasant scent comes from Rose Floral Water, Organic Lavender. The product also contains Witch Hazel Bark/Leaf Extract, which is known to help with the appearance of dry or damaged skin and restore your skin’s elasticity.
Skin Brightening Exfoliator
Next, I applied Caithy Organic’s Skin Brightening Exfoliator. Unlike many other exfoliators, this one was very gentle on the skin, but even so, after using it, my skin definitely felt smoother and looked brighter. What’s special about this product is that it uses Walnut Shell Powder rather than microbeads to exfoliate your skin. This natural and eco-friendly ingredient helps to gently remove any skin impurities and dull surface cells, which helps leave your skin instantly smooth and radiant.
Skin Firming Concentrate Oil
After toning and exfoliating my skin, I used Caithy Organic’s Skin Firming Concentrate Oil. This product has many benefits including improving scarring, skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles. It also helps boost your skin’s elasticity, firmness, and brightness.
How does it do all that? Well, the product contains Organic Rosehip Oil, which is full of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that help moisturize your skin, combat anti-aging, and fight pollutants. It also has Avocado Oil, which contains a high percentage of Vitamin E, potassium, lecithin, and many other nutrients that nourish and moisturize your skin. The oleic acid found inside avocados promotes collagen production, meaning it helps to grow new skin, accelerating your skin’s healing process.

Marula Rich Moisturizer
Caithy Organic’s Marula Rich Moisturizer was the product I was most looking forward to trying out. I had heard so many amazing things about what Marula Oil can do, such as hydrating and softening your skin and offering antioxidant protection. It also has anti-inflammatory effects and some antibacterial properties. As you continue to use Marula Oil, your skin’s surface will become stronger and it can even help to reverse the adverse effects of sun damage.
Not to mention, the product is great for anti-aging as it’s enriched with plant-based peptides. I also loved the light and pleasant scent of the moisturizer. It’s recommended to apply the moisturizer twice a day, so I’ve incorporated it into my morning and nighttime routine.
Sunscreen is the most important product you need in your morning routine because we need to be protecting our skin from harmful sun rays. Applying Caithy Organic’s Natural Sunblock is the last step in my skincare routine and this product is great because it’s made for sensitive skin and has SPF 50 and UVA and UVB protection. The sunblock is a quite heavier and thicker product, so you need to be careful to rub it into your skin evenly.
The sunblock contains Kiwifruit Extract, an excellent source of antioxidants that help defend your skin from the visible effects of airborne pollutants. The special ingredient, however, is the extract of a native New Zealand plant called Pohutukawa. Pohutukawa is a native New Zealand tree that is known for its revitalizing and skin conditioning properties. In fact, it’s used topically in traditional Maori herbal medicine for wounds and abrasions. The bark of Pohutukawa contains Ellagic Acid which contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help calm and soothe red, irritated skin.
What did I think of the products?
As someone who is quite sensitive to smell, all of the products either had a light and pleasant fragrance or an unnoticeable one. I particularly enjoyed the floral scent of the Instant Hydrating Mist Toner and the fruity scent of the Skin Brightening Exfoliator. I also struggle with blackheads around my nose area and some skin texture issues, which I think the exfoliator and the Skin Firming Concentrate Oil will definitely help with as I continue to use it. Moisturizer and sunscreen have always been important products to help hydrate and protect my skin, so the Marula Rich Moisturizer and Natural Sunblock are new staples in my skincare routine.
If you take a look at the video above, you can see my skin visibly becoming brighter after using the Caithy Organics products, so, overall, I am very pleased with the results. It’s even better knowing that everything I’m putting on my skin is natural and clean.
