This has nothing to do with photography. Absolutely nothing. But it is part of my life, thus I’m including it for you. 🙂
I love natural beauty products. Products that have easily understood ingredients, like coconut oil, or sweet almond oil, or poppy seeds. Things I know won’t seep into my skin and cause all sorts of maladies. And I have looked far and wide for these products. Some work, and some don’t. I thought I would start some blog posts that will include my faves, and the ones I would never buy again.
So, enter my quest for a natural facial scrub. My requirements? It needs to be gentle enough to use everyday, with enough scrubbing power so that I notice the difference.
I have tried that apricot one.. too many funny additives.
I have tried Oil of Olay’s micro scrub and that made my skin look like I had burned it.
I have made my own, and it was natural, but not convienent for me to use daily.
Along comes a glowing recommendation for Burt Bee’s Citrus Facial Scrub. I was a tad skeptical, but I love most of Burt’s Bees products, so I decided to give it a go.
(Sorry for the small photo.. failed to take a pic of mine before I used it)
The Deets –
$7.99 for a 2 oz. jar.
Made with ground almonds, pecans, and a blend of orange and almond oils.
My Thoughts –
I have been using this product for almost 3 weeks straight. My skin feels amazing. A very small amount of product is needed per use, so I am guessing this will last me about 2 months, given what I have already used. The smell.. oh the smell…Think Pumpkin Spice Latte or Cinnamon-y Chai. Delish!
Side note…If a facial product doesn’t smell good, I am going to have a hard time using it. Please don’t make me tell you about the horrific smell of Neem Oil.. Please. I still have nightmares from that sulphuric stank.
Anyway, this product is great. I would recommend it to any friend. It did not dry out my skin, or make me break out. Yay!! So, I say, you should go to your local health food store and pick up a jar.
Stay tuned for more reviews. Burt’s Bees Lemon Poppy Seed cleanser. Bare Escentuals. BeautiControl. I’ve got beauty reviews planned yo! 🙂
Feel free to leave some comments if you have tried a natural product that you love!! I would love to hear about it.
