Wellness Wednesday or Hump day or just the one day I carved out time for my blog. I have one follower but hopefully maybe you all are reading it directly from my facebook? No matter maybe if someone googles anything I blog about it will bring them here and I can be of help to them. It’s all good.
Has anyone read the book Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis? I am on her second book right now and these are not to be missed. If you haven’t read Girl Wash Your Face go out and GET IT or get it on Audible (which is my prime source of reading these days.) It’s amazing. It’s motivating for boss babes, mommies, just women in general to get up get off your ass, don’t get stuck with mom guilt, don’t feel bad for your imperfections just…..It’s great. I don’t want to give too much away. I am super bummed that for the second year in a row I missed Arbonnes Global Training Conference because she was the guest speaker and blew the 16,000 people inside the MGM and the other thousands watching from the internet away.
But, to get to my point about washing your face. Hey, I said I was going to try out some products for you right? There are many and I mean many brands of face wash out there I tried a couple and wanted to briefly give you a bit of a run down. Odds are I will probably try more in the future too, I am a sucker for samples and beauty products, I will try em all!! Typically my go to is Arbonne RE9 smoothing facial cleanser. Its anti-aging, creamy, gentle, vegan, removes all my makeup and free from harmful things that we want to avoid like parabens,sulfates,fragrance and phthalates. Has wonderful ingredients full of vitamins for you skin.
I also tried a brand that I am LOVING these days. Glam Glow. In my BoxyCharm box for May I got a full sized Gentlebubble Daily Conditioning Cleanser. This one is definitely in my rotation now. It’s targeting to minimize your pores and help with dryness and uneven texture. I have huge pores and am on the dry side so that works for me. There is antioxidants in it to help with anti-aging (I always love that). It also embodies what I always look for in a product free of all the yucky stuff that I listed above as well as it’s VEGAN!!
Kopari Coconut Cleansing Oil is another cleanser I tried. This one I liked at first. It’s super gentle on the face. I loved the way my face felt afterward as well. It’s great for all skin types and again embodies the vegan and free of chemicals standard that I love. But, it did not remove all of my make up so I was bummed. This would be great for an in shower in the morning kind of wash when you are just washing off the sleep or something, definitely not for an end of the day heavy make up wearer.
Up next Brandless!! Has anyone tried Brandless. All the items are super inexpensive, mostly $3 and they are great quality. Cruelty free, and again free of the chemicals. I purchased their Grapefruit facial cleanser that is made with fruit extracts. There is fragrance added to the mix which I am not a fan of. If you have sensitive skin this is not great for you. It smelled good and was gentle but I was disappointed that it did not remove all of my make up either. You get what you pay for.
Incoming is Tula Probiotic Skincare. When I read Probiotic Skincare I perk up. Probiotics are wonderful for the body and you absorb what you put on your skin so talk about a win win right?! This one was definitely a winner!! It removes make up like a dream but kind of has a soapy scent to it. Ingredients include chicory root, turmeric root and blueberries yum!! There is fragrance added so for anyone that has an allergy to that beware, but this gem is in my rotation as well. They are cruelty free also which is a plus.
One more I will quickly add is the BRAND SPANKING NEW Arbonne Micellar Water. This product was just release this past weekend. The standards for ingredients follow the rest of the Arbonne products, free of harmful chemicals, cruelty free, tested so many times beyond. It’s waterless!! Waterless cleanser. You just put it on a cotton ball and wipe!! Now, I have yet to put it on a fully made up face as I just recently received the box with the product inside of it. But maybe it’s one you would like to try.
I was once told if you don’t wash your make up off of your face it ages you 5 years! OMG! 5 years? For every day I forget to wash my face? I am pretty religious about it these days but back when I don’t even know when I fell asleep or just passed out….I cannot even count. So hopefully that is just a myth. But you really do want to wash the environment off. There is so much out there that we DON’T see, let alone some of the stuff we do see and our make up. Also, that may be the only spa or self care you get for the day. So make it a good one. Until text time my bewitching beauties!!
