Frankincense & Rose Review and Giveaway
When Kate, the owner of Frankincense & Rose, contacted me I was super happy. It was been way too long since I have featured a homegrown Vermont vendor. I am pretty passionate about skin care and am very careful about the products I use on my skin. I do use some harsh products like glycolic face washes because I am not getting any younger. A little prevention can't hurt.
I do have sensitive skin so I am careful to not overdo it with treatments and alternate with gentle cleaners and lotions as well. My problem with a lot of products one can find at a drugstore or skin care boutique is that although they are marketed or labeled as "green" when you do a little digging you find out that is far from the case. Some vendors take great liberties with their definition of the word natural. Frankincense & Rose offers simple, effective, and straightforward products.
I reviewed the Cucumber & Green Tea Mild Cleanser, Honeysuckle Skin Toner, and Lavender & Bergamot Body Milk. The cleanser is great. It doesn't strip the moisture from one's skin and has just the right amount of lather. I really liked how soft my skin felt after I used it. It didn't tighten my skin up at all. I really don't like that super dry feeling my stronger cleansers give me. The light, fresh scent is a bonus.
