BEAUTY: One Love Organics Microderm Scrub & Masque
I have extremely sensitive skin, so I tend not to try out new products too often and just stick with what works for me. However, recently a friend of mine gave me a microderm scrub and masque to test out from One Love Organics called Brand New Day. It is a water-activated exfoliator made with organic sweet pea flour, pineapple enzymes and mineral rich kaolin clay. What I love most is that 100% of the ingredients are from natural origin, 64% of the total ingredients are from organic farming, and it is Natural and Organic Cosmetics certified by Ecocert Greenlife.
There are only seven ingredients – so you can do more with less.
The moment I opened the bottle, I could smell the pineapple enzymes taking over! Using the microderm scrub felt like arts and crafts because once you pour the powder into your hands you have to mix it with water into a paste to get the masque going. After applying it to my face, it dried quickly and I washed it off with lukewarm water after 10 minutes. The scrub is so gentle that I was worried I wouldn’t even notice a difference after washing it off. I’m accustomed to harsh, tingly scrubs – I once thought tingly = clean.
I have come to love multi-purpose products (except two-in-one Shampoos and Conditioners). It soothes my need to multi-task – concealer and sunscreen in one? Yes, please. Dual-purpose colour sticks for lips and cheeks? Give it to me. Brand New Day allows you to mix the powder with plain Greek yogurt for a clarifying masque or add raw honey for a hydrating masque!
My face felt brighter and smoother than ever! It’s gentle enough to use every day and all over your gorgeous bod.
