The Best of TRUE BOTANICALS | Rutele

I have been using True Botanicals for about a year now and I have tried out almost every single item…I have issues…I know. The brand itself is just so darn sophisticated and pure. Once you try one product you will want to try everything else that fits your skins profile. I love the simplicity of their packaging (it’s all recyclable) and the fact that all products are free of carcinogens, paragons, sls, sles, phthalates, gmos and synthetic fragrances. None are endocrine disruptors and all are cruelty free.

So having said that I wanted to show to the three most stand out items that I have used. They have truly transformed my skin and I find it so odd that more people aren’t talking about the magic of these products.

Let’s start with the almighty Vitamin C Booster. If you are into skin care you know how magical vitamin C is. It’s the cure for basically everything our skin can endure but often times this ingredient isn’t produced properly. See vitamin C is very unstable biologically so when it comes in contact with air or light in the forms that most companies produce it in (such as serum or any liquid) it basically becomes useless. True Botanicals produces it in a powder form which takes away that instability. This allows it to become even more powerful, last longer and it supercharges any product you melt it into.

This booster is a combo of vitamin C and Ferulic Acid (which are both antioxidants) that help speed up cell turnover and protect overall skin integrity.

Vitamin C is one of the most essential antioxidants to help fight radicals and collagen production thrives on it. Vitamin C speeds up cell turnover to inhibit melanin production, reduce hyperpigmentation and dark spots to reveal glowy skin. 

Ferulic Acid is a potent, ubiquitous plant antioxidant which boosts the benefits of Vitamin C to protect overall skin integrity by reducing the development of fine lines, spots and wrinkles.


  • Tones the skin
  • Smoothes the skin
  • Brightens the skin

It’s best for people who are struggling with hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.

To use this all you do is dissolve one or two shakes into 2/3 pumps of a water based serum, moisturizer or even straight up water. It’s also gentle enough to use morning and night.

I have been using this product for the longest out of the three, about six months, and I don’t think I can live without it anymore. I personally have seen drastic results with this and granted I don’t inspect my skin under a microscope but the biggest triumph for me was when my aesthetician didn’t comment on my hyperpigmentation as she used to before I started using this.


Now moving on to the resurfacing moisture mask. This is like a facial in a jar. The lactic acid-based resurfacing mask moisturizes as it exfoliates, revealing smoother, glowing skin in just 5 minutes. It also consists of avocado butter and astaxanthin.

Lactic Acid is a alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that is not only an effective exfoliant but it also stimulates production of natural ceramides and hyaluronic acid to prevent moisture loss. Plus it helps brighten skin by inhibiting melanin-triggering enzymes.

Avocado Butter replenishes moisture with rich, nourishing oils which help skin remain vibrant and soft. Rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E, protein, pantothenic acid, and fatty acids.

Astaxanthin is proven to improve skin elasticity and texture, stimulate collagen production, strengthen cell membranes, reduce wrinkles, and diminish dark circles and hyperpigmentation. It also outperforms both vitamins E and C as an antioxidant and even boosts their effectiveness when combined.


  • Exfoliates the skin
  • Smoothes the skin
  • Reveals glowy skin

To use this massage onto clean dry skin and leave on for 2-5 mins. Gently remove with warm wet cloth and follow with face oil.

I personally love to use this in the middle of a shower or after a shower when the top layers of my skin have been loosened up by the steam. Putting this on top of that just helps get all of those dead skin cells off and it reveals an even smoother and glowier skin.

I freaking love this mask. It really has replaced any of my other resurfacing products like ahas and bhas. This includes the Paulas Choice BHA and any other chemical exfoliants that I have used in the past. I feel like this does the best job and I see a faster, more instant result. This is for sure another reason why my hyperpigmentation has gotten much better.


The last but not least item is the Chebula Active Immunity Serum. This is a hydrating anti-aging serum that strengthens the skin’s immunity to prevent, protect and correct all signs of aging. Chebula, an ayurvedic and the most bioactive and powerful antioxidant the skincare world has ever seen. A potent concentration of immunity-building antioxidants including elderberry, ginger and echinacea absorb deep to nourish and fortify the skin so it can defend against outside aggressors and prevent the effects of aging on skin. Skin is left hydrated, glowing, and more youthful looking.

Chebula is the most bioactive anti-inflammatory and the most photostable, broad spectrum, cascading antioxidant that skincare world has ever seen with ORAC scores higher than Acai. Chebula stimulates collagen production and boosts filaggrin for smoother, strong skin. Helps to regulate pigmentation, minimize inflammation and maintain hydration, as well reduce blue light and pollution stress. Terminalia chebula has a strong history of use in Ayurveda for strengthening and nourishing the body. It only recently was obtained for topical use via an innovative and safe water-based extraction process.

Elderberry, Ginger and Echinacea are potent antioxidants that strengthen the skin’s immunity with anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. Elderberry helps eliminate toxins and is abundant in Vitamin A, C, and E. It has a well documented history of restoring health and aiding in longevity – Hippocrates referred to Elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest.” Echinacea includes immune boosting polysaccharides that help with wound healing and cellular regeneration. Ginger further enhances blood circulation, encouraging healthy and glowing skin.

Low and High Molecular Hyaluronic Acid Each work on different levels: smaller sizes absorb to deliver plumping hydration that helps minimize the look of wrinkles, while larger sizes remain on the surface to deliver intensive moisture that helps smooth and soften skin texture.


  • Minimizes appearance of fine lines
  • Minimized appearance of wrinkles
  • Evens skin tone
  • Smooths roughness
  • Firms the skin
  • Brightens the skin

To use this you apply 1/2 to 1 dropperful to face morning and night after cleanings. Make sure your face is misted with water before and after you apply. This ensures that the hyaluronic acid has water to grab onto from outside sources instead of drawing water from within your skin and dehydrating you. Apply a heavy oil or moisturizer on top.

I am obsessed with this serum. I have seen insane results in just two weeks of using this. I, for the longest time, have had texture on my skin, specifically on my forehead and cheeks. Nothing that I used ever helped in diminishing these until this serum. The texture and bumps have decreased significantly. I only have a few on my forehead now which I am sure will be gone complete as I continue to use this serum. My skin feels bouncier and way more hydrated as well.


I truly love these products with all of my heart and I especially feel good about using a company that truly cares about ingredients and producing high quality products. I love not worrying about wether this will break me out or cause some sort of reactions within my body. Clean ingredients, clean packaging and innovative products. You cannot go wrong with that.
