Product review by Sharon of all natural beauty
| As we head into the drier fall season, we instinctively start reaching for the moisturizer.
Whether it's the face or body, the skin seems to be craving more moisture. Before the scalies set in, you must find yourself a moisturizer that will be effective for the long haul, and one that will not be adding harmful chemicals into the largest organ of your body... your skin.
I've been using one from one of the purist companies I've found, Farmaesthetics. To read the ingredients listed on their packages, one doesn't need to know technical jargon or chemical compositions. Their ingredients read like a trip to the health food store bulk ingredients section. So they win my vote on purity alone. But on top of the purity-factor, it works beautifully!
The scent of the Lavender brings on a sense of peace and joy, making it a pleasure to use. I also love the way it penetrates into the skin, and makes my skin very soft and smooth long into the day. Farmaesthetics says that it can also be used for its 'slip' factor in massage. But don't let that fool you into thinking that it's greasy. When used in the proper amount, it just makes the skin feel like soft skin, not oily. For a massage, you would use a bit more. For soft, lovely skin, and purity at its finest, my recommendation is Farmaesthetics' Nourishing Lavender Milk.
