Alchemilla Organic Exfoliating Face Wash Cream

I love trying new skin care products, and have always taken especially good care of my face.

I hadn't heard of the Alchemilla company before receiving their Exfoliating Face Wash Cream - but now I have learned quite a bit, and they have quite a unique enterprise!  They are extremely dedicated to bringing their customers authentic, organic, plant based beauty products while maintaining an environmentally responsible facility.

They grow all of their plant ingredients, and use local organic suppliers for most of the raw materials.  Their farm and manufacturing is 100% wind powered, too!  Their printed material is all from recycled sources, and the packing peanuts are either salvaged or made from starches.

The skin care is all made by hand, in small batches using pesticide free ingredients.  Certified cruelty free, they are ranked among the safest in America with  no parabens, sulfates, dyes, synthetic fragrances, mineral oils, pthalates or toxic chemicals.

Their philosophy is that by using natural means to achieve beauty, the results will be lasting.  That by enhancing, rather than manipulating skin, true beauty will emerge and remain.

So, now that you know all that.. let me tell you how the product works.  For me, it worked quite well.  I normally use an exfoliant 2-3 times each week, so I just substituted this in its place.  I squeezed a bit out of the tube, and rubbed the creamy formula onto my face.  I didn't feel the harsh scratchy feeling that I was accustomed to.  This is much gentler.  The scrubbing beads are made of jojoba, and while I could feel them, it was a gentle massaging sensation.  I continued to rub it in, using circular motions around my face for about a minute, then rinsed it off.

Usually after exfoliating my face feels a little bit drier.  This product left my face smoother, without sucking all the moisture out.  I loved that!  I still followed my daily moisturizing routine, but I didn't feel like my face needed it so desperately.  There was really only the faintest trace of fragrance left behind, and it is a very natural, scent.

I was pleased with the results.  After 2 weeks of using this, my skin hasn't had any reaction, or breakouts. My face looks smooth and it feels soft and moisturized.

The Alchemilla company has a whole line of skin care products for the face, and bath and body products, too.  They have aromatherapy products, and a line of botanical remedies for common skin conditions, too.

I'm happy to let you know that have very generously offered to provide another tube of their Exfoliant Cream for a Giveaway.
