My own personal mission in 2018 was to be more mindful and truthful with my own skin care and makeup choices. I knew there were more naturally based products out there and definitely more affordable. In other words, it’s no longer about brand names. It’s about pure, natural, honest and mindful products.
I like a lot of skin care products but I seldom fall in love with many. In November, I wanted to try something with cleaner ingredients. I was desperately in need of an exfoliant for my face. I will admit the scents coming from the Lush store are always intoxicating so I went for it. I discovered Ocean Salt and it serves as a Face and Body scrub. I selected the self-preserving and vegan pot. The main ingredient is Fine Sea Salt and Citrus (grapefruit and lime). It also has Avocado Butter, Coconut Oil and Seaweed. I chose the self-preserving one because it removes the preservatives often found in beauty products. This also means I have to use it quicker than most items. Let me tell you, this was not a problem.
Since my skin was experiencing more dryness this year, the added avocado and coconut oil was a welcomed ingredient. But my absolute favourite thing about this exfoliant is the Salt! Pero Porque? Well in a winter wonderland, the salt made it feel like I was on a beach somewhere hot. At least this is what I try to envision while in the shower. The benefit of the salt is two-fold. It exfoliates and kills bacteria. Anywhere salt exists; bacteria are less likely to thrive. Some may find it dries out your skin but that’s why we have moisturizer. The added lime citrus serves as a clarifier, which makes your skin tone lighter and even. I use this scrub on my face 3 times per week because its gentle enough and it doesn’t dry out my combination skin. The 120 g container lasted about 3 months and for $22, I think it is a valuable option.
My newest secret weapon for skin care is definitely worth adding to your weekly skin care routine. I’m due for a refill and refuse to go without it.
Love & light,
