Before my skin decided to become more reactive to ingredients, like SLS, I could treat it with any sort of abuse. For Jove’s sake, I used to put toothpaste on my acne (and guys, please don’t ever do this, for the love of all that is good, don’t). But with the the burden of sensitive skin came the need to tip toe over any products that seemed remotely abrasive. So, of course, exfoliating scrubs were the first to get the cut out of my skin care.
But, for those of you who know me, I love the holidays, and I adore surprises at Christmas. However, my mum alleges that I’m impossible to buy for- which I disagree with, give me tea and books and I’m thrilled- but anyway, I asked for her to try, at least, to do surprise gifts this year. She knows I’m a huge skin care advocate, so she decided to pick me up some things from Sprouts. One of the items she ended up picking is this guy here:
It’s from a company known as the Pacha Soap Co. The ingredients seemed safe, with the majority being all natural, so I decided to give it a try. Now, since it has a whipped consistency, it was no where near as gritty as the scrubs I used to subject my body to; instead, it was light, soft, with just the barest edge of a rougher touch. Combined with the Shea butter, the result was luxurious. It not only smoothed my skin over, which is a life saver for the psoriasis on my arms, but it also gently softened my skin, to keep the exfoliating experience from the likes of rubbing a cactus across your naked body. Plus, this jar lasts forever! I’ve been using it for almost two months now, about once or twice a week, and I’ve only used a quarter of it. It can’t get better than that.
Moreover, this tub costs just twelve dollars. You can buy one here at the Pacha store. Let me know what you think in the comments below. I’ll see you guys in the next post. Have a great week and keep rocking your skin care regime!
