What they say about Vanessa Megan
NON-TOXIC - Formulated from excellent, non-toxic 87% organic ingredients. Includes organic aloe vera, sunflower oil, shea butter, elderberry and petitgrain.
ETHICAL - Manufactured in Australia, Vanessa Megan’s PH Balancing Cream Cleanser draws on the power of natural extracts and oils. Vanessa Megan offer vegan, cruelty-free and organic products and work with suppliers that share the same morals and ethics.
This was my favourite product to use! It’s an absolutely beautiful cleanser. Feels luxurious, the packaging is nice to look at and it doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils. Very hydrating! It’s good to see that Vanessa Megan works with suppliers who share values with their own and donates to women’s domestic violence charity. I love that.
I love the rich and creamy texture of this cleanser on my skin. It feels lovely as a first cleanse and leaves the skin feeling utterly soft. I appreciate and respect the brand’s approach and values.

For someone who has dry and dehydrated skin AND wears a lot of makeup, this cream cleanser is really gentle at the same time as being really thorough. It does a fantastic job of removing oil, dirt and makeup whilst leaving skin feeling soft and hydrated. Wonderful subtle scent, too. Love the use of organic, local, wild harvested ingredients and the brand’s efforts to reduce waste and give back to society.
– Emma Freeman
A lovely gentle cleanser which leaves my skin soft and moisturised. It also removes stubborn makeup with ease. Perfect for nighttime cleansing and dry/mature skin.

N.E.O. [NATURE'S ELIXIR OIL] 12 HOUR MIRACLE OIL
NON-TOXIC - Formulated from excellent, non-toxic, 100% organic ingredients. Includes organic seabuckthorn, pumpkin seed and argan oils.
ETHICAL - Manufactured in Australia, Vanessa Megan’s products draw on the power of natural extracts and oils. They offer vegan, cruelty-free and organic products and work with suppliers that share the same morals and ethics.
I love that this product is packed with a bunch of amazing skincare properties that make it a great one-stop-shop for people who don’t have the time or inclination to have an extensive skincare routine. After using the oil my skin always feels soft and hydrated, and after continued use the overall look of my skin is better as well, so I’m sure with long term use I’d see great results. I love that Vanessa Megan uses post consumer waste plastics where they can’t be avoided, as well as sourcing as many ingredients locally as they can. It was also great to hear that they employ Australian-based staff as I know there are many jobs these days that could be outsourced overseas.
– Ash Quinn
I adored the richness of this oil – I could immediately see why it’s named an “elixir” – and the deep colour and scent gave me a great sense of the quality of the oils within. The application – of mixing the elixir with oil – was unique and not something I’d done before, but I loved the emulsion texture as it was so soothing and hydrating on the skin. It’s a genius blend of ingredients that would make it perfect for any and all skin types and it leaves behind a really beautiful glow on the skin. Local manufacture and a passion for educating consumers are both elements of this category which resonate well with me personally. Prioritising education is admirable and speaks to the passion of the brand.
Packed full of purposefully chosen, carefully sourced, nutrient dense organic oils, this oil is both hydrating and restorative for my dry winter skin. I like to use this before bed as an ultra-light night oil and I love the healthy glow it gives me upon waking. I also love the scent – it very much transports me to an expensive day spa! Just gorgeous.
– Emily Fletcher
I love that this beautiful lightweight oil can be mixed with water when added to the face and neck (meaning a little goes a long way). It is a potent formulation absolutely packed with vitamins and minerals, is non-greasy, and can easily be applied underneath skincare and makeup. My skin glows with each application. Love the use of organic, local, wild harvested ingredients and the brand’s efforts to reduce waste and give back to society.
– Emma Freeman
MOISTURISER - OILY SKIN
VITAMIN A+B+C DAILY FACE CREAM
NON-TOXIC - Formulated from excellent, non-toxic, 82% organic ingredients. Includes Kakadu plum, white tea and pomegranate extracts.
ETHICAL - Manufactured in Australia, Vanessa Megan’s Vitamin A+B+C Daily Face Cream draws on the power of natural extracts and oils. Vanessa Megan offer vegan, cruelty-free and organic products and work with suppliers that share the same morals and ethics.
This face cream has a lovely, rich and nourishing texture. The plant-based ingredients help keep the skin feeling hydrated and soft. It is easy to apply and the twist top lid doesn’t allow for the product to be wasted. I love the brand’s approach to sourcing ingredients and the use of sustainability.
– Shahrzad Kahrobai
I loved this product’s twist-top function, made even more cool when housed in a stylish gold and white tube. The formula also sits comfortably on the skin. It’s wonderful to learn that the brand utilises post consumer waste plastics – a practice I wish more beauty companies would employ!
– Hannah Gay
Super hydrating and because there are so many added beneficial ingredients, it means you don’t have to use as many serums and treatments! Great for the time poor. It’s good to see that Vanessa Megan works with suppliers who share values with their own. The donating to women’s domestic violence charity is special too. I love that
– Madeleine Edwards
Delightfully lightweight with an aloe base, this beautiful moisturiser keeps my skin hydrated and supple all day, yet without any oily sheen. I love wearing it under my makeup and knowing it is packed with active ingredients working to brighten and smooth my skin and refine my pores.
— Emily Fletcher

NON-TOXIC - Formulated from excellent, non-toxic ingredients.
ETHICAL - Manufactured in Australia, Vanessa Megan’s natural perfume draws on the power of natural extracts and oils. Vanessa Megan offers vegan, cruelty-free and organic products and works with suppliers that share the same morals and ethics.
To me, the scent of jasmine signals the start of the spring and the shedding of winter layers, and this beautiful floral perfume does exactly that when wearing it. It is light and subtle, and the perfect accompaniment as we enter the awakening season of Spring. Love the use of organic, local, wild harvested ingredients and the brand’s efforts to reduce waste and give back to society.
– Emma Freeman
A breath of sweet, Spring air, it’s bursting with the smells of white flowers in the garden. The brand is local and considerate of carbon footprint as well as the ingredients and packaging.
– Sarah Berry
I loved the packaging and the aroma. Education around the impacts on toxic beauty products is incredibly important to me as there are so many products women use daily doing a lot of harm to our health and hormones. I love that Vanessa Megan are so passionate about sharing the WHY when it comes to natural and organic – a very important message for women.
– Courtney Dow
Delicately feminine and floral, there is something delightfully bewitching about this beautiful scent. (Though it does have a faint red tint, so be careful to apply and let dry before getting dressed!) This perfume perfectly celebrates Spring to me and I love floating around in its floral embrace. Highly recommended.
