Product Review: Tebe Skincare

Dear Friends

Have you heard of Tebe, an organic skincare product from New Zealand? Tebe was launched in Malaysia last year.

Just a few weeks ago, I was handed 3 products for review. After using the products for several weeks, I felt that it is time to share with you my thoughts.

Product Background (obtained from Tebe's website)
Tebe® (pronounced teh-be which means "For You"), is an exciting new product range from the Simunovich Olive Estate for face, lips, hands and body that combines the ancient traditions of olive oil based skin care, with the powerful antioxidant ingredient, olive leaf extract.

Tebe’s products are made from a carefully selected blend of natural and organic plant extracts and oils, balanced to enhance and protect all skin types. The olive leaf extract found in Tebe products is rich in Oleuropein, a powerful anti-oxidant. Olive leaf extract helps to combat fungal, yeast and parasitic infections.


What I thought exciting about this product is that the olive oil and olive leaf extract used in Tebe's product came from their own Simunovich Olive Estate!So I think that the extract must be very fresh and the active ingredients well preserved.  Don't you think so?

Tebe Face Day Cream

Product Description
A nourishing cream to hydrate and revitalise the appearance of your skin. Combining natural plant oils, this light, antioxidant rich cream leaves your skin feeling smooth, soft and conditioned, all-day long.
Beneficial for all skin types. Use only as directed.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Prunus armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Decyl Cocoate, Cetyl Palmitate, Sorbitan Palmitate, Sorbitan Olivate, Macadamia ternifolia (Macadamia) Oil, Glycine soja (Soybean) Oil, Persea gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Bisabolol, Triticum vulgare (Wheat) Bran Extract, Calendula officinalis Flower Extract, Chamomilla recutita (Chamomile) Flower Extract, Fucus vesiculosus Extract, Glycerin, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides, Cetyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cymbidium grandiflorum (Orchid) Flower Extract, Butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter), Olea europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Mangifera indica (Mango) Butter, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Squalane, Parfum (Fragrance), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Xanthan Gum, Tocopheryl Acetate, Olea europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Zingiber officinalis (Ginger) Extract

My review:
This day cream has a very creamy texture but it is not oily. As I have very oily skin, I only use a tiny amount for my face and neck. The cream absorbs very easily and does not leave any sticky feeling. Although my skin is naturally oily, Tebe Day Cream does not turn my face into an oil slick. I gues it must be due to the good formulation. After 4 hours of application, my face looks shiny but it is not extremely oily which is very surprising to me. I just need to use a blotter to absorb the shine. Tebe day cream does not clog my pores and I do not suffer from any breakouts.

My Recommendation:
In my personal opinion, Tebe Face Day Cream would be very suitable for people with normal/dry/matured skin. For those who live in cold countries, this day cream will be very handy during winter or when your skin is under a dry spell.

My suggestion:
I would like to suggest that Tebe create a lighter version of the day cream, maybe a gel base moisturiser for Oily skin. That will be great.


Tebe Face Night Cream

Product Description
A rich, nourishing treatment to hydrate  your skin while you’re sleeping.
Awake to hydrated and well-rested skin when you  use Tebe Night Cream, a perfect blend of natural  plant oils, extracts and extra virgin olive oil.  Regularly applied, this rich, nourishing treatment containing olive leaf extract will help keep skin  supple and smooth.
Beneficial for all skin types. Use only as directed.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Cetearyl Olivate,  Sorbitan Olivate, Decyl Cocoate, Glycerin, Beta  Glucan, Persea gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Cetyl Palmitate, Sorbitan Palmitate, Macadamia ternifolia (Macadamia) Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Cymbidium grandiflorum (Orchid) Flower Extract, Cetyl Alcohol, D-Panthenol, Mangifera indica  (Mango) Butter, Narcissus tazetta Bulb Extract, Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter), Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Rosa rubiginosa (Rosehip) Oil, Olea europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Triticum vulgare (Wheat) Gluten, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Parfum (Fragrance), Xanthan Gum,  Olea europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract

My review:
Tebe Face Night Cream has a thicker consistency as compared to the day cream. It is not oily although it is very creamy. This night cream absorbs very quickly into my skin despite its creamy texture. Similar with the day cream, I only need to use a small amount. I am very pleased with the night cream as it leaves my skin hydrated.

My Recommendation:
Tebe Face Night Cream will benefit people with normal/dry/matured skin and even those with oily skin like me. For those who sleeps in an air-conditioned room, this cream will prevent dehydration.
