Beauty Review: HollyBeth Facial Cleanser

http://www.motherearthliving.com/Wiser-Living/beauty-review-hollybeth-facial-cleanser.aspx

GinaMy face often varies between too dry and too oily, depending on the weather. Today it is teetering on the verge of too dry. (Curse you, Kansas weather!) I really just need a gentle face wash to keep me clean. Luckily, that’s just what HollyBeth offers. HollyBeth’s Natural Luxury recently introduced a facial cleanser for dry skin that doesn’t strip skin of moisture or dehydrate. This blend is packed with botanicals that left my skin feeling refreshed. These organic botanicals include:

• Chamomile. This essential oil is an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic agent. It soothes irritated skin and helps calm redness. It is an ideal ingredient in general skin care, especially where inflammation may be present. It is also well known for its relaxing abilities.

• Rosemary. Known for its many uses in the kitchen, rosemary essential oil is also an ideal ingredient for general skin care. It has antifungal and antiviral properties and helps decongest and improve blood circulation, which stimulates cell renewal.

• Evening Primrose. This essential oil is used to add extra moisture and hydration to the facial cleanser. It is also used as an anti-aging ingredient.

To use, pump a couple of times for a serving of the cleansing foam and gently massage it onto your skin. Rinse after the refreshingly scented foam has dissolved.

I wouldn’t recommend this product to someone battling troublesome skin. The cleanser, which is made with castile soap, is intended for everyday use. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a great gentle face cleanser that they can use daily.

This hypoallergenic cleanser is free of artificial colors, dyes, GMOs, parabens, sulfates, fragrances and preservatives. The plastic bottle is also easy to recycle once empty. This organic cleanser for dry skin is available for $15. The company also offers an organic cleanser for oily skin that is made with marigold, sandalwood and grapefruit (also $15).
