My skin has been freakishly clear for the past two weeks, but like an idiot, I've stopped drinking coffee and started using a new cleanser all in that 14 day period so I can't tell you what's responsible for this sudden clarity. All I want to know is can I start drinking coffee again, because it's this fab new cleanser working its magic, or do I need to quit coffee forever? What to do, what to do... I'm hoping the new cleanser is responsible for my clear skin because I've been faithfully drinking green tea every morning for the past two weeks, and let me tell ya, I am so over it. Plus, a study was recently done that suggests green tea leaves absorb an abnormally high amount of lead from the soil. Yay! Lead poisoning!
However, you probably are less interested in lead poisoning and more interested in the cleanser I previously mentioned. It's called the Raw Honey and Turmeric Cleanser and it was created by a woman named Anya Messina of Anya's Herbals on Etsy. Not only is Anya super kind and helpful, she truly knows her stuff. The package in which I received my cleanser contained a printout of her company's philosophy and information on her "8 Botanicals Blend", which is described as a "proprietary blend of 8 locally grown and gently extracted healing agents, this remarkable formula is at the heart of all our products". These ingredients are: bearberry, cinquefoil, common mallow, cranberry, ground ivy, lavender, soapwort, usnea lichen and wild rose. Each of these ingredients has something special to offer, such as blemish healing or moisturizing properties. This cleanser also contains raw honey that is gathered locally, which makes it better than most other cleansers, in my opinion. Plus, I am sort of addicted the smell and the way it gently cleanses without stripping my skin. Anya hit the nail on the head with this one.
In addition to receiving this cleanser, I also got a sample of Blossom soap* from Anya's Herbals. This soap not only has a gorgeous floral scent, but it also has a beautiful, marbled look to it. It cleanses beautifully, and like the cleanser, leaves your skin feeling clean, not stripped. I am just completely thrilled with every I received in this Etsy order. If you are looking for a natural cleanser, soap, body lotion, mask or other skincare item, I highly recommend checking out Anya's Herbals. You won't be disappointed!
