Did you know that anything we put on our skin is absorbed into the bloodstream within minutes? Its scary to think about some of the less than stellar products I have tried in the past chock full of harmful chemicals! I watch what I eat so it only makes sense that I should watch what kind of products I apply to my skin especially since mine is so darn sensitive.
I want to tell you all about Skinfood Skincare today. Their products contain only fresh natural ingredients made with organic blends of plants, flowers, herbs and essential oils. They even use natural preservatives like citrus, vitamins and antioxidants instead of chemicals. If you are as concerned about your health as I am, then this is the product line for you!
Skinfood Skincare has a wide range of products for both face and body. I received four products to try and each has their own unique benefits. They were Gourmet Skinfood, Floral Spritz, Rainflowers Jojoba Skintonic, and Rosepetal Whipped Cream.
The Gourmet Skinfood is a concentrated blend of steam distilled, 100% organic plant oils and extracts. It is meant to be used with the Floral Spritz ( acombination of plant based essential oils, aloe, other nutrients and purified water) to create a powerhouse of nutrients, anti-oxidants, and anti-aging benefits. It is best to be used in the evening since that is when you skin can better absorb and use the nutrients. I applied both products after my evening bath on a clean face of course. Since my skin is oily, the directions say to use 2 to 3 sprays of the Floral Spritz followed by 1 to 2 pumps of Gourmet Skinfood. I loved both products! The Floral Spritz was very refreshing on my skin and had a great natural scent. The Gourmet Skinfood is an oil you apply afterwards and I only used a little bit and it was enough to cover my face. My skin felt really good and I liked that both products easily absorbed into my skin and I did not have any issues with either despite having sensitive skin. This water/oil combo works to do the job of a moisturizer and does it without the need for wax or emulsifiers (found in moisturizers). The Gourmet Skinfood (1 oz.) is $25 and the Floral Spritz (4 oz) is $15.
The Rainflowers Jojoba Skintonic is another product I got to try and this one has multiple uses! It can be used as a cleanser for your face, a body moisturizer, scalp treatment, massage oil and for shaving. Obviously the main ingredient is jojoba oil. I learned a few facts about this special essential oil:
- it has almost the same chemical makeup as your skin’s natural oils
- contains a natural antiseptic to trick your skin into producing less oil
