Review: Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line

It has been a full week of nothing but rain. Giving us more reasons to stay indoors, I bet the malls are not as jam-packed compared to when it was summer. I also want to share that I was able to get hold of a promo Cebu Pacific flight for March and I can't be more excited. Guess where we are heading to? Yay. I'll tell you at the end of this post. So for today, our entry is still related to our search for products for clear skin. Today's review is about Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line.

Human Nature says: 
Be acne-free in three! This three-step regimen is infused with the power of tea tree oil to effectively reduce the appearance of pimples while being gentle on your skin. 
Step 1: Cleanse your face with Acne Defense Facial Wash. 
Step 2: Apply Acne Defense Face Toner using gentle swipes. 
Step 3: Boost your acne-fighting skin care regimen with Acne Defense Solution Gel.

Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line is in the usual plastic packaging with flip top cap for the toner and face wash while a push pump dispenser for the acne gel. They are very hygienic and travel friendly.

I'd really appreciate it if the packaging will be nature friendly as well but I know how convenient plastic bottles are. I am kinda hoping of a policy in the future wherein there is a drop box for plastic discards and it will be collected by the brand where it was from so they can make use of it.

I remember the very first product I tried from Human Heart Nature was their Sunflower oil. I like it but I stopped buying it because it smelled like adobo after some time of using it. Fast forward today, I truly liked how their Acne Defense Solution Gel worked for me so I've decided to try the whole Human Heart Nature Acne Defense Line.

Facial wash
100ml/ P169.75
Packed with pimple-fighting tea tree oil and skin-soothing aloe vera, this non-abrasive, alcohol-free facial wash combats pimples without harsh chemicals that can irritate skin.

This facial wash smells and feels refreshing. I like the scent somehow minty and herbal like if I am making sense. The main component of this face wash is tea tree. Per instruction it says to shake well first before using a button-sized amount to massage the face while humming a catchy tune. I've noticed that this face wash doesn't lather up but my skin feels so soft and bright after I pat dry with a towel.

100ml/ P109.75
Break free from breakouts without the harsh chemicals. This tea tree oil powered toner effectively reduces the appearance of pimples and helps reduce skin oiliness. Natural AHAs aid in skin exfoliation, gently promoting skin renewal.

The toner has the same scent with the face wash (well because it is also tea tree! hehe) It goes on clear and clear like usual toners. I find that I need to apply a lot to use this toner. It also somehow felt drying. It doesn't pick up much dirt so I am assuming that the face wash did the job for cleansing.

Acne Gel

Get clearer-looking skin without the harmful side effects of chemical treatments. This potent blend of tea tree oil and pimple-fighting actives penetrates the skin to help crack down on breakouts and dry out blemishes.

Well I don't really feel like digging into how much I love this Acne Gel. I basically finished 5 bottles of it already. It comes in grayish gel which dries out my acne without leaving dark marks.

Clause from this line says 
Purging may occur when first using this product. You may experience a few more pimples coming out and your skin may seem oilier than usual as dirt bacteria and excess oil surface deep-cleaning.

Purging may last 1-3 weeks as it said but mine lasted more than that. I was using the entire line for a month and my case worsened. I figured out it was the toner's fault because at first 3 days I was only using the face wash and my skin was fine. I had recurring pimples which I can't get rid of.

How much and where to buy?

Whole set is available for P429 in their Human Nature online shop before but they often change promos. You can also buy each item separately. 

What I love
Tea tree scent
Face wash fully cleanses my skin
Bright skin after washing
 Acne Gel works as fast as 2 days
Acne Gel doesn't sting
I can buy each item separately
Cruelty free

What I don't

Toner is drying for me
Toner made me break out

Will I repurchase? 
Sadly due to the toner, I will have to pass out in using the entire line but I will keep on loving the Acne Gel.

I realized that this line wasn't for me. I got nothing but breakouts due to the toner but I feel like I can still use the face wash and stick with the acne gel. 

Despite what happened I still adore the brand because they are not just locally made but they are also NPA certified which means they have 100% no harmful chemicals: No parabens, synthetic fragrances, alcohol, SLS/ SLES, formaldehyde or other toxic chemicals. Human Heart Nature is also cruelty free which means they do not test on animals. Keep in mind that if you want cruelty free products you must avoid brands that sell in China. China still requires all imported cosmetics and special-use cosmetics to be tested on animals.


So that is our review for today, and yes before I forget location reveal for our get-away on March - Palawan! Yes we'll be on an early summer get-away and I am very excited! I think the last time I was there was when I was on college during a tour.

Do comment and share your current skincare regimen. For now I went back to my Safeguard and Acne Gel combo to be on the safe side.

  1. I've only got a chance to try the toner because it was out of stock when I purchased and I love the effect it has on me. Hope to get the facial wash and gel soon however, due to the ECQ, I won't be able to get them till next month. Thanks for your review! BTW, check out my blog as well — ayeitszoe.com
