Now that I am getting older, looking good takes just a bit more work than it used to. Long gone are the days when I could simply wash my face with Dove soap, dash on some bronzer, and rush out the door!
Today, I find that I am also evaluating the composition of my skin care products a lot more carefully. Harsh chemicals are a definite no-no, and I’ve taken to using organic products whenever I can.
Luckily, I recently found Alchemilla through Exfoliating Face Wash Cream. It cleans deeply and removes dead skin cells, flakes, and clogged pores. The rich cream contains rosemary and calendula, both of which have natural, antibacterial properties. And, it also uses sea buckthorn berry (a natural antioxidant) and moisturizing shea butter.
Now, my skin is brighter, smoother, and healthier looking. The extra gentle formula never leaves my face looking angry and red — like so many other facial scrubs I’ve tried over the years.
A 1.4 oz. (45g) retails for $26.00, but a little goes a long way. Alchemilla recommends use 3x per week, but if you exercise frequently or have break-out prone skin, you can use it every other day.
