Revamping your skincare routine is always an exciting time. I’ve always been an advocate of mixing things up every so often so that your skin doesn’t get too used to the products you’re using. After I finish up the last remnants of whatever I may be using at the time, I’ll switch to something new. I recently changed to an Australian skincare brand, Organic Rituals. They are cruelty-free, natural, and make their products locally. It’s been about two weeks since I started this new routine and here’s my little review.
First, we start off with the cleanser. I’m using the Anti-OX Foam Cleanser which is ideal for those prone to breakouts or have an oily-to-combination skin type. I like how gentle it is on my somewhat sensitive skin and you can really feel it deeply cleansing all the dirt away. The sulphate-free blend (which also includes Parsley, Green Tea, Wheatgrass and Alfalfa) also assists in preventing premature ageing. I use 2 pumps of this and massage it into my skin in gentle, circular motions – day and night.
Next up, we have the Cocktail Scrub. I love my exfoliants so much because they lift away dead skin cells leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth. Being an all natural brand, Organic Rituals have used 100% natural physical exfoliants instead of microplastic beads which end up in our oceans. I actually much prefer these natural exfoliants, not only for the environmental aspect, but because they feel like they get in deeper. The results are smaller pores and a more even skin tone. I take a pea-sized amount and gently massage for about 2 minutes. This one I would only use every 2-3 days.
