It’s not often that I make an impulse purchase, but I made a sneaky detour into my grocery store’s natural beauty section, which is surprisingly great, and I saw theΒ Acure Organics Radical Resurfacing Treatment. You know I love their seriously glowing serum and brightening scrub, so I decided to give it a try. The claims? Reduce blotchiness and hyperpigmentation, which are all too familiar to me.

A few weeks ago, I gave my skincare routine a little makeover. My previous routine was preventing my skin from getting worse, but I knew it could be better. I finally changed how I cleanse my skin and it changed everything! All this time, I’ve been focusing on finding the right serums and moisturizers when how I washed my face was the culprit.

We all have our own journeys to adopting natural beauty products. For me, it happened about three and a half years ago after I had a very painful and ugly reaction to a moisturizer formulated for sensitive skin. Determined to figure out what ingredient/s had caused it, I delved into researching the cosmetics and personal care products industries and I didn’t like what I found. I promptly replaced that terrible moisturizer with a bottle of Leven Rose jojoba oil and it’s been aΒ part of my daily skincare ever since.

Not to brag, but c’mon, that’s a pretty good love story. Though jojoba oil was my first love, I’ve tried three other oils from Leven Rose and I want to share my thoughts. In a perfect world, I would own all of their products. At the end, you can read about the ones I’m particularly desperate to get my hands on.
