Skincare has always been important to me. I never ever go to bed with makeup on, I wash my face every morning and night, and I try not to put harmful chemicals on my face that a lot of beauty and health brands use. If you read my blog post on how I cleared my acne, then you know the struggles I’ve been through. My skin is super sensitive.
One brand in particular that I love and trust is Alba Botanica®. My favorite toner is actually made by them and I’ve been using it for years. The reason I love this brand so much is because they strive to have good ingredients, they don’t test on animals, and they use biodegradable formulas and recyclable materials. To put it simply, they care about people, animals, and the earth. Read more about them and the good the do here.
I’ve recently started using the Acnedote Face & Body Scrub and Fast Fix For a Pimple. Here are my reviews and more info on each…
Acnedote™ Face & Body Scrub
A good scrub is a must-have for any skincare routine. The Acnedote Face & Body Scrub is gentle enough while also being exfoliating. With a scrub, you want to make sure there are no plastic microbeads. It’s important because the plastic microbeads go down your drains into the ocean and plastic and the ocean do not mix. This scrub fits the bill and also has no harsh sulfates, synthetic fragrances, artificial colors, parabens or phthalates. It contains salicylic acid and willow bark extract to fight existing acne and prevent future breakouts. I love the way it feels applied to my skin and the way my skin feels after! Soft, clear skin is the best.
It would make the perfect holiday gift too because it smells like peppermint! I’m obsessed. I’ve never used a skincare product that smells this good.
Fast Fix™ For a Pimple
Fast Fix For a Pimple is perfect for bringing along everywhere you go since it’s travel sized. It includes 6% salicylic acid, is oil-free and hypoallergenic. The best part? It’s tinted! It covers up any blemishes while fighting to get rid of them at the same time. It’s lightweight so you could wear it on days you don’t want to actually wear makeup but also conceal a bit. I’ve been opting for products that fight acne and are tinted instead of regular concealers recently and my skin has been thanking me. I really recommend this one! Stocking stuffer anyone??
