Dreaded winter skin is upon us! *dun dun dunnn* My skin for the most part is a C student – never really great, but never really horrible – it’s just kind of ‘there’ going through the motions. During the winter I notice my skin get a little irritated from dryness or maybe it is lack of a tan, but either way it definitely shows some wear. I have been trying to get my beauty routine to strictly natural products so I was excited to try Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains with Echinacea GreenEnvy™. I am bad about exfoliating my skin regularly because any exfoliating wash or scrub I have used tends to be too harsh for my skin. So I am glad this product has been sent from Heaven to me! :)
About Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains with Echinacea GreenEnvy™
This potent skin care treatment contains natural cranberry seeds to deep clean, life away surface debris and promote skin clarity – you can actually see the bits of cranberry! The powder is rice bran powder – it loosens dry skin cells and absorbs express oils. It is a really fine powder so once you add water (be sure not too had too much!) it will create a cream. This product also contains a complex of White Willow Bark, Carrot, Green Tea and Marshmallow to soothe protect and calm the skin! The star of this skin care product is the Echinacea GreenEnvy. It is a patent-protected variant of Echinacea Purpurea which contains Cichoric Acid, a potent natural antioxidant that gives your skin a more evenly toned complexion.
How to Use: Pour a small amount of the grains about the size of a quarter – into palm and blend with a few drops of water. Mix until a smooth, foaming paste forms. Massage onto skin with gentle circular sweeping motions. Rinse with tepid water and pat dry.
First off – as a lover of all things beautiful I have to say that this is possibly the cutest packaging design I have ever seen. I love the bottle with the wooden top! I am such a sucker for packaging – especially when the product is great! :)
I was surprised to find that it is all powder and grains in the bottle! You mix the treatment with water to create a foaming exfoliating cream. I poured about a quart size amount of powder in to the palm of one hand. I was very careful not to use too much water so I literally stuck my free hand under the faucet and then dropped a couple of droplets of water in to the powder. You do not need a lot of water at all – just a couple of drops will do! The product mixed up easy and was very easy to apply to my face. I am use to the more harsh apricot scrub – where you literally feel like your are scrubbing your skin away – so this was VERY gentle in comparison. The cranberry seeds were just enough to feel like you were getting a deep clean. I was surprised that the product had very little fragrance. Keeping it all natural I should have expected that, but sometimes I do miss a good, clean scent. After exfoliating in small circles all over my face I rinsed it clean. It came off very easy and left my skin feeling very smooth. After using an exfoliator my skin usually feels REALLY tight and dry, but this product was so gentle it just left my skin feeling rejuvenated!
I have used Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains with Echinacea GreenEnvy™ several times now and I am loving it. I feel like the redness in my skin is gone and the overall tone of my complexion is a lot brighter. I definitely recommend trying this product – trash those products that are drying out your skin with harsh chemicals!
