Recently I had the pleasure of trying several different products sent to me in Miami by a natural cosmetic company called One Love Organics. Using only high quality, pure and organic ingredients, their products have quickly become part of my daily face care routine. Not to mention the beautiful pink packaging of the containers make a great addition to my washroom!
This soap free, clean smelling and gentle cleanser is a gem in a bottle. It is a mixture of organic chilean soap bark, cold pressed apple oil and vegetable glycerin. A small amount purifies the face, removing all traces of makeup and mascara leaving my face feeling fresh without drying it out. What I liked about it most is that I don’t have to rub the sensitive skin around my eyes vigorously to remove my eye make as this foaming cleanser does so without any effort. Pores appeared tighter and my face feels soft and clean. In addition, this product can easily replace everything in the shower as it is also effective as shampoo and body soap. The foaming cleanser stays true to the promise stated on the label, it “ goes a lot further then you think!”
Formulated with pure cold pressed plant oils and extracts, you can use this beautiful balm to cleanse, moisturize, shave, apply as hair conditioner or simply anywhere moisture is needed. This is one of the most versatile items I have come across. My favorite way to use it is as a mask. I apply it evenly on my face after cleansing and leave it on for 10-15 minutes ( you might be tempted to keep it on longer as the light citrus scent is amazing!). I then remove it with *My New Best Friend skin shammy and my skin feels squeaky clean, refreshed and well moisturized. It is also an excellent skin conditioner during the day, I also dab it on my lips, rub it into cuticles and knuckles as those are the areas I tend to dry up in the winter thanks to the Toronto weather!
My New Best Friend skin shammy is an essential part of the skin care regime and is to be used along with the products listed above. It is a unique and soft microcloth fabric which absorbs and retains impurities and dirt from the skin. I like to use it to wash off my makeup along with the foaming cleanser and I also use it to gently wipe off the beauty balm. I hand wash it after every use and the next day I am able to carry it in my purse and use it to dab excess oil and shine from my face. Its many uses make it a must have product!
Another line I had the opportunity to try is from Sheaterra Organics, a company which specializes in organic skin treatments and harvests many of its ingredients from across Africa.
Premium Dark Chocolate Sugar-Stone Exfoliating Cream The name says it all, this product is a DREAM! Gently rub it in a circular motion while showering and you will be enveloped in the delicious aroma of pure chocolate. Close your eyes for a moment and you will feel as though you are walking through a chocolate factory! The best part is, it’s calorie free 😉 Formulated with organic chocolate liquor, organic shea butter, natural emulsifying wax, organic sugar, pumice, all natural vanilla extract and naturally based preservative, it thoroughly removes dry and dead skin leaving your skin feeling soft like a baby’s bottom from head to toe. This is hands down the best exfoliator I have used to date and I promise you will not be in any rush to rinse off this amazing cream!
