Eminence Willow Bark Serum

Eminence Willow Bark BoosterLast week I reviewed Eminence’s Probiotic Cleanser-it’s an absolute must if you are battling clogged skin.  Since the cleanser was working so well and I deal with a large amount of blackheads, I decided to give the Willow Bark Serum a go.  My hope was that I would have the same great experience with the serum that I did with the cleanser.

The Willow Bark Serum comes in a 1 ounce glass dropper bottle.  It has a gel like consistency and a nice, subtle smell of melaleuca and licorice.  It goes on easily and you only need a small amount to cover your entire face.  Since I have been using it I have experienced even more smoothing and clearing!   I can tell it keeps my skin calm and reduces breakouts.  Usually a “clearing skin treatment” will work by drying the skin out while using chemicals to kill bacteria.  After applying this serum, my skin feels a tiny bit sticky, but soon after it’s as if my skin responds to it and I can feel softness and hydration.

While I use the Willow Bark Serum all over my skin, it could be used as a spot treatment.  I don’t experience large breakouts but many reviewers said that when applied to a zit in it’s beginning stages, it greatly reduced the blemish!

Willow bark helps to calm skin. Horsetail helps to softens and tone.  Walnut Leaf exfoliates, anise is a powerful antioxidant and melaleuca (tea tree) essential oil to cleans and clease the skin.  Biocomplex™, an antioxidant booster of Vitamins A, Ester C, E, Coenzyme Q10, and Alpha Lipoic Acid reduces the appearance of wrinkles and improve the appearance of skin.  As you can see, this serum is packed full of natural but potent ingredients that really pack a punch.

Lemon Sugar Facial Scrub

Lemon Sugar scrubSince I no longer get chemical peels, I’ve been searching for a gentler, more clean way to exfoliate.  Today I made a super simple scrub.  My skin is so smooth and soft right now.  I am so impressed and so excited!  This is a super simple and probably pretty obvious recipe so you’ve got to try it and tell me what you think!

I love what lemon does for the skin.  It brightens as well as exfoliates.  It’s awesome wonderful for acne.  Pair that with a sugar and you get a really thorough exfoliation!  Coconut oil moisturizes and softens.  Plus it’s antibacterial which keeps things clear!

My recipe calls for fresh squeezed lemon.  This will mean that you won’t be able to store this for long.  With scrubs, I like to make them when I’m ready to use them.  They just don’t seem to keep well.  Mine harden and become unusable even though I’ve tweaked the proportions.  If you would like to keep yours for a while, nix the lemon juice and opt for lemon essential oil.  Also, I find that a thicker sugar works better in this scrub.  I used raw sugar, but you could use brown sugar instead.

This scrub is awesome for the whole body.  I was looking for an exfoliant for my face, but I also ended up using this on my hands as well.  So super soft.  You’re just going to love it!

Sugar Lemon Scrub

1/4 cup raw sugar (find it HERE)

2 TBSP. Coconut Oil (find it HERE)

1/2 Lemon or 20 drops of Lemon Essential Oil (find it HERE)

Mix ingredients together and gently scrub your face and neck.  Do not go overboard-less is more with face exfoliating.   Also, I melted my coconut oil but I think it would mix when it’s solid just fine.
