Facial Scrub with Sugar, Lavender Essential Oil, Babussa Oil, and White Willow Bark Extract
Lavender & Willow Facial Scrub
Why do I need this?
You know that icky feeling at the end of the day? This scrub gets it off your face. Maybe you feel like you have a film stuck to your face due to pollution. Or maybe it's just the icky feeling you get from eating Taco Bell in your car after work.
This scrub will show you what it's like to feel brand new again! It will be like Taco Bell never happened. Get Lavender & Willow and get in the shower or bath! YES!
How do I use this?
If you want to get the maximum benefit from this product use it in a hot, steamy shower. Alternatively, you could use it in the bath after laying a hot rag on your face for a minute or so. This way, your pores will be open, allowing the active ingredients to penetrate fully.
Whether you're in the bath or shower just wet your face with warm water and gently massage some of this purple magnificence into your face in circular motions. The scent of Lavender essential oil is the first thing you notice. The steam and vapor of your bath or shower becomes infused with this calming aromatherapy as the scrub begins to dissolve. This is a proven effect of Lavender essential oil, it really is calming and soothing according to several studies. Lavender is also anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial.
What is it like?
The scrub itself goes on nice and scratchy, but with a simultaneously slick and dry texture due to the avocado and Babussa oil blend. It feels great. It feels like it's scratching all the parts of your face you could never scratch before, but not too hard. Just the tiniest, most effective scratches in the world. Every time I use it I'm like "aaaaarrhhhhhhh! I'm putting this all over my body again...." And then I do it. I have a 16 ounce jar.
How does it work?
As the sugar, oil and water combine, the sugar begins to exfolliate your skin and break down into glycolic acid. Glycolic acid is a water soluble acid that works to break down the keratin that holds together old skin cells on the very top layer of your skin.
Now White Willow bark extract (with Salycilic acid) can do it's job. Salycilic acid is oil soluble. It can travel into your pores along with the oils in the scrub. Once there it works to dissolve clogs in your pores (like blackheads! those are made of oily stuff like sebum. That means something oily or oil soluble has to help dissolve them-Salycilic acid does this. It also further softens old keratin to ensure the sugar crystals are able to work as effectively as possible to lift them away.
But wait, how am I getting my skin hydrated?
Babussa and Avocado oil still have a job to do besides just transporting the Salycilic acid. They are now in a position to penetrate your baby-soft, newly exposed skin for maximum effect. You will be radiant.
How often do I use it?
Use this scrub 2-3 times a week, quit eating fast food, and watch your skin develop it's own instagram page. Oh, and don't forget to leave us a review on facebook or on this page! Thanks, and tell a friend!
