It’s funny how skin types can change over time. I used to have combination skin that is more on the oily side, but after changing my lifestyle and diet in the past year, I find that my skin is now normal to dry. And because of my dry skin, I find that my face flakes more, which is probably due to an accumulation of dead skin. So from using clay mask treatments, I’ve switched to face scrubs and the one I’m mostly using now is Kimberly Sayer Gentle Almond & Lavender Face Scrub.
I was rather excited to try the Naturopathica skin care products because they sound rather promising. Another reason is because the brand reminds me of Neal’s Yard Remedies, which I’ve wanted to try but haven’t had the chance. Well, similar or not, I’ve been trying some products from Naturopathica for more than two months and I’m now ready to share my review on them.
I can now totally understand why a number of you like using virgin coconut oil. It’s quite an awesome oil and I wish I had discovered it earlier. For some reason, I kept thinking that the smell would be quite unbearable but turned out, this is one of the best smelling oils I’ve come across. I mean, unless you really detest coconut, there’s no way you’ll dislike the smell. Moreover, it’s a very versatile oil, being suitable for both our hair and skin. In fact, you can just about use it anywhere on your body.
I wonder how many of you remember when I used to rave about Sukin Organics product range back in 2008. In fact, I was pretty enamored with the Sukin Organics Foaming Facial Cleanser and had used up quite a few bottles during that stretch. But actually, if you’ve seen Sukin, you’ll know what I mean when I say the brand is unexciting but yet appealing. I mean, it doesn’t feature any interesting ingredients nor is it a cult brand but somehow, the simple natural concept, affordable price plus easy accessibility work together to give this brand a certain mass appeal.
