Quiz: just how sun savvy are you?


The sun is out and the UV index is high. You definitely need to wear your sunscreen. But, wait. Are you using the right sunscreen and is your skin well protected?

    Hey sesame, I got 8! haha…

    Btw, I tried the Yuan soap, Wild Patchouli Soap. I use it for my body, primarily to get rid of the pimples/clogging on my arms. So far I have used for about 3 weeks (on and off since I have been out of town). I cannot say that my problem is solved but I can definately say that there are results. My skin is smoother and my arms less itchy. So, I don’t scratch them and try to squeeze them anymore. Next, I’m gonna try the mung bean one to reduce the pigmentation on my arms.

    pf: I recently tried wild mugwort…not so fantastic for me. The mung bean really whitens my face and possibly have some effects on the smaller pigmented spots but not so obvious.

    dear pf1123, i used the wild patchouli about 3 bars worth for my back acne. it really helped to reduce and clear the pus-inflammed pimples on my back and body. i still get pimples but it’s on its slow long journey to recovery. now using the mung bean. it has this really spicy smell! i think it’s from the cinnamon and clove essential oils that they use for the mung bean soap…

    Raelynn: The Mung Bean stings my eyes sometimes if I’m not careful…

  5. pf1123 says:

    Wow…need to use 3 bars?!

    Mine is not exactly acne. They are like little clogged pores on my arms.

  6. valerie says:

    Ive used the Mung bean too, so far, I think I tend to sting my eyes most with that pretty often. >..<

    Valerie: You too? So I’m not alone. Anyway, I have used half a bar and has stopped using it on my face now. I find it a bit harsh even though it doesn’t really dry out. So the rest I’m using on my body.
