Well, August is here. That means traditional US Summer is more than half gone! How? Why? Where has it gone?!? But I shouldn’t complain. Things are going well and it’s been a decent Summer so far…not that much has actually happened in my world. LOL! I just love the long, sunny days (which I feel the need to point out the ridiculous amount of rain this year) and I actually enjoy the heat…as long as there is air conditioning. 😉 Since July has past, we all know that means it’s time for another Cruelty Free Favorites! I’m not going to pretend that I wore much makeup throughout the month, but I have been trying a lot of new skincare in a surprisingly successful attempt to battle to onslaught of dryness brought about by Accutane. I should probably call this my “Cruelty Free Skincare Favorites.” LOL! But there’s some great skincare that I’ve been loving in July as well as a few food stuffs. So sit back, relax, and I’ll try to keep it brief…at least as much as I’m capable! LOL!
If you’re after healthy glowing skin, you absolutely need to be exfoliating. Whether that be with a chemical or acid exfoliant or with a manual or “scrubby” exfoliator, this is the best beginning to removing those dead dull skin cells and reveal that fresh healthy glowing skin underneath. That said, I find that a really great exfoliator is hard to find! In particular, manual exfoliators are one of those goldilocks-type products that are often not scrubby enough or are way too harsh for even the toughest of skins. As my skin becomes increasingly sensitive and ever more dry (read into that more and more dry flaky skin that I really want removed!), I find it even more difficult and even more important to find a great exfoliator for the face. Being on Accutane, I cannot really use chemical exfoliants and I need to be very careful with manual ones as well. Finding something that’s not harsh, while still being effective has always been quite the challenge. But fear not! Today I am sharing with you the solution – the Odacité Jojoba Beads Exfoliant!!!
