Here in Canada, we are getting into our colder winter months. Those of you who are in this with me know how awful winter can be on your skin. So my next few posts will focus on some wonderful products you can use to keep that soft and hydrated skin throughout these winter months.
To start things off I have an awesome sugar scrub by IQ Natural & Organics!
Between the cold weather and heating it’s tough to catch a break. But fear not my lovelies- there is something you can do!
I am avid on using moisturizer. I moisturize my face and body every single day. Even if you do this, you can STILL get dry skin, and it’s so frustrating. One of my solutions to getting rid of dead skin are scrubs. It’s amazing how well they work.
IQ Natural & Organics sent me their Coconut Brown Sugar Scrub and I’m in love. First of all, the smell is AMAZING. I have used other scrubs before, but this is by far the one with the best scent in my opinion. IQ Natural & Organics products are made in Gladstone, Oregon, USA and they are handcrafted!
Texture wise, it is like any scrub and once it gets wet it dissolves quickly. The texture reminds me of sand. Very fine particles.
Here are some photos for a closer look:
The Coconut Brown Sugar Scrub label reads: “With all natural organic coconut, honey, argan oil, vitamin E & hypoallergenic. Powerful 10% alpha hydroxyl acid stimulates new collagen and elastin production. Exfoliate away dead skin and reveal smooth & refreshed skin.”
Ingredients listed are: organic white sugar, olive oil, argan oil, 10% glycotic acid, essential oils, herbs and honey.
The product is:
- Has Aloe Vera
- Has High Organic Content
- pH balanced (4.5-5.5)
I used this in the shower and my skin was so soft, and even softer after I moisturized. It leaves your skin feeling so nice, but not tight or any residue- YAY. The coconut oil in it is moisturizing so it didn’t leave my skin feeling dry.
Two suggestions I have to get the best results from the product:
1. Make sure to really give yourself a good rinse off in the shower before you get out. That way you avoid having a residue feeling (if it were possible to get), or some of the tiny particles left on the skin.
2. Make sure to let the water rinse out the base of your shower or tub. Once you rinse this off of your skin it accumulates in the base of the tub. Seeing as the colour of this scrub is brown you can really see where it accumulates, I found it took a bit of extra rinsing to get it to melt and go down the drain.
I am so in love with the scent of this product, and how exfoliated my skin feels after! This will be one of my best-friends this Winter season.
