We’ve just passed the Back to School time of year and now the holiday seasons is barrelling towards us. It’s time to take a step back, make a plan to take care of yourself and to pamper yourself before the stress of this time of year even gets to you.
When we’re looking for products to take care of our skin and body, we tend to default to what is on sale. It’s normal and what most people do. But if you have allergies to certain ingredients or if you have sensitive skin you may start looking for other options as well. Desert Essence sent us some of their Jojoba and Sweet Almond products to test out and to help prepare us for the holiday season.
This isn’t the first time I’ve used Desert Essence products and they’re actually one of the first natural brands I used when I found I had to be gluten free over a decade ago. Their ingredient list includes items I can pronounce (mostly) and that are derived from natural products.
The body scrub they sent doesn’t use the microbeads that can pollute the water systems, instead it uses coconut husk and other items that will break down over time. While the body oil uses real oils that are found in nature and not made in a lab. The smell of jojoba and sweet almond is light and not overwhelming and one that you will enjoy as you pamper yourself just a little bit every day.
It’s not too early to start thinking about how to take care of yourself before you get overwhelmed. And finding a product that takes care of you and wont hurt the environment is a great way to do it.
