I know I said I am putting together a store to sell my new beauty and health products. It’s taken a little longer than I hoped. My hubby is working on the product images. In the meantime, I took a few with my cell phone that are just ok… lol… ok, pitiful.
My products will feature all the freshest and most natural of ingredients. And, I found the most adorable new acrylic containers to place them in. We’ll have everything from facial scrubs to face creams to body butter and even a very manly balm. Ingredients are things like cocoa butter, coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, and essential oils. For those too who don’t know I’m currently taking a course to be certified in herbs, to be able to treat and heal naturally.
The first product, of course, that I intend to feature is my facial scrub. I use this every time I wash my face. It is just so awesome and now that I started using it, I wonder how I ever got by without it. Probably like many of you, I would have success for a time with a facial cleanser, then suddenly I’d break out. Well, those days are long gone. That’s one great thing about my store to come: I will not sell anything without trying it out on my own first.
In my facial scrub, it’s really coconut oil and pure cane sugar as the basis. These two are awesome together! The coconut oil is super moisturizing while also being great for cleaning. It possesses naturally antifungal and antimicrobial properties. Add in a dash of tea tree oil and, VIOLA! SUPER CLEANSING POWER! Then, the sugar is soft enough it isn’t too abrasive on the delicate skin of the face. It adds a dose of exfoliation that sloughs off dead skin cells and rejuvenates the skin to a shiny, new glow.
The essential oils were researched and picked to provide the greatest benefits to the skin. Frankincense, a known antiwrinkle agent, is present along with a couple of others leaving behind a super nice, fresh scent.
To use the scrub, I simply splash my face with water. Taking a tiny bit of the scrub onto the tips of my fingers on my right hand I start rubbing the scrub on my face in delicate, circle like motions. It removes make up like a champ by the way! Then, I just splash my face to rinse and pat dry, aiming to follow up with my next product of mention to come: my face cream. I only use the scrub at night to remove my make up and any impurities I’ve famished my skin with. The great thing with the following face cream is that it can also nourish and cleanse anything I’ve picked up from overnight.
I simply love it and can’t wait to share it. No more breakouts and any little hint of one is quickly shot down. Plus, my skin just feels so much better and looks much more glow like since. I can’t wait to share it in my shop.
