Hello loves! I couldn’t wait to release this blog post for it is one of the ones I am most excited about this year so far! I had so much fun planning this shoot and I couldn’t wait for you all to see what all the hype was all about. Recently, I have been investing in clean and organic products for my home. While on my health and fitness journey, I have taken it upon myself to be more conscious about the types of foods I put into my body as well as the products I put on them. Slowly, I have even started to replace some of my makeup brands that have toxic ingredients and are not good for me long term anymore. This process is a personal decision for I want to make sure that I invest in my health and wellbeing. While on this path, it was lovely to run into sweet Amber on Instagram when she started telling about her new company Primal Skin Co. According to their website “60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed directly into your bloodstream.” With stats like that I can consider myself officially woke (as should you) and I really wanted to try some of their products. Doesn’t make you wonder, what am I putting on my body?
You then start to think about all of the products that you put on your skin on a daily basis and wonder, how much of this stuff is doing more harm than good. On the contrary, one of the major battles about going “clean” is that a lot of those expensive (yes, why does clean have to be so pricey sometimes) but beautiful products don’t necessarily work. I have bought more than a handful of products that honestly made no difference whatsoever. You want the products to be effective so I had Amber send me a a few products to my home to try and I have to say, I am in LOVE with this brand!!!!!! Now with the beauty industry trying to be more conscious of the fact that consumers are wanting more clean products, there are a lot of new clean brands out there (such a great thing), but it is easy to get lost in the mix. I’m on the quest to find my staples and use a range of their products so that they work as effectively as possible. Primal Skin Co. is a great staple for me now, for their products really work! I am so glad that fate has brought us together.
My favorite product hands down has to be the Citrus Fresh Scrub. Not only is it so vibrant in color and looks gorgeous in my bathroom but the product is just heavenly. I have transported it to my shower since honestly, I don’t really have the time these days to take long luxurious bubble baths, but it has become one of my favorite items in my routine. I use it about 3-4 times a week and my skin is just so soft and glowy! It’s so good that you can even use it on your face for your weekly exfoliating treatment.
The Lavender Mint Silk moisturizer you see pictured as well, is another new favorite and it’s super nice and thick. Currently, the Citrus Scrub is moisturizing enough that I don’t have to use lotion afterwards but I have applied it to the extra dry patches of skin (like my elbows and heels) and I can already see a difference.I am going to get a lot of good use for this when the seasons change and the temperatures start to drop. I also used it the other day on my hands after I deep cleaned my house (unfortunately I haven’t found my favorite clean house cleaners yet ) and it’s really a nice and lush consistency that leaves no stick film.
I have been taking a lot of my showers at night so it’s the nicest feeling to jump into clean sheets with the softest skin and melt into the mattress. I also love their Lavender Soft Lip balm and put it on every night before bed and I sleep soundly knowing there are no unknown toxins flowing through my bloodstream. If you haven’t yet looked into the benefits of going clean with your products, you definitely should. Also make sure to take a stop by Primal Skin Co. and try some of their amazing products. You won’t regret it.
