So many face scrubs are harsh and abrasive. Learn about my favorite face scrub for sensitive skin. It’s natural and different than anything you’ve tried!
I’ve always had sensitive skin. Instead of getting less sensitive as I’ve gotten older, it’s gotten more sensitive.
I think part of that is living in the mountains. I moved to the mountains when I was 32, and my skin hated the change. The air is extraordinarily dry up here. It gets down into the single digits for humidity during the winter.
The first couple years we lived up here, I’d get these red patches on my cheeks that looked like acne. They were actually extremely dry patches of irritated skin though!
Fortunately, I’ve learned what works for my skin over the years, and I know my skin has acclimated to the weather as well. I no longer get those red patchy spots. I do, however, have to be extremely careful about what I use on my skin.
Finding a Face Scrub for Sensitive Skin
Most face scrubs irritate my skin to no end! I can only use sugar scrubs on my face on the rare occasion, and when I do they have to be heavy on oils and use fine ground sugar – and I can’t scrub too hard or long.
Since I got sick, I have been spending so much time indoors. I have’t been taking as good of care of my skin as normal, and I was starting to feel it.
I decided to dig into the box of Annmarie Skincare products they sent my way several months earlier and see what I could find to help my skin. I’ll talk about some of the other products that have helped my skin tremendously, but today I specifically want to talk to your about their Ayurvedic Facial Scrub.
When I first opened it up, I’ll admit I was a little confused. It’s basically a green powder. I was wondering how that could do anything to exfoliate my face. After all, most face scrubs are pretty abrasive from my experience. I’d often had trouble finding a good face scrub for sensitive skin.
Using the Annemarie Skincare Face Scrub for Sensitive Skin
I went with it. I started with about a teaspoon of the green herb powder in my hand.
Then I mixed it up according to the directions on the tin. You can mix it with water or the Aloe Herb Cleanser.
I’ve used this face scrub several times now, I like to use a little bit of cleanser with water. I find that the consistency of mixing them together works best for my skin.
Then, you just massage it into your clean, damp skin like you would any other face scrub. When I used the Ayurvedic Facial Scrub for the first time, it didn’t feel like it was doing anything. I figured that was better than it overly irritating my sensitive skin, so I just kept massaging.
Once I was done massaging, I rinsed it off with a warm wash cloth. I was absolutely blown away by how soft and smooth my sensitive skin was! The scrub didn’t feel like it was polishing my skin, but it most certainly was!
After using the Ayurvedic Facial Scrub, I follow it up with the Neroli Facial Toner, a serum depending upon what my skin needs that day and a facial oil. My skin feels tremendously different than it did a few months ago when I started using Annmarie Skincare products.
If you scroll down through my Instagram photos over the last year, you’ll see how ashy and dry my skin was last summer. I started using the Annmarie Skincare line when I got out of the hospital in September.
It’s amazing because I’ve been searching for a new favorite natural skincare brand since alex+von closed a few years ago. I have finally found it, so I’ll be talking more about my favorite Annmarie Skincare products in the future.
Annmarie Skincare Sample Kit
Are you nervous to try another natural skincare brand? Because let’s face it, there are a lot of them out there that simply aren’t effective, especially for aging skin. I know I’ve wasted a ton of money trying natural products that don’t work for me.
I am often hesitant to even agree to write reviews for natural skincare companies because I’m disappointed so often. Annmarie Skincare knows that so they have a super cool $10 sample kit that you can order and try out some of their popular products. I haven’t found one I don’t like yet, but I know all of us have different skin!
If you find products you love in your sample kit, you can use the $10 coupon you get with your sample kit towards your next purchase. It’s a really great deal.
I’m looking forward to continuing to play with Annmarie Skincare products and share my favorite routines and products like this face scrub for sensitive skin with you!
