One Love Organics Brand New Day Microderma Scrub + Masque
Anyone who has ever used Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant will find this scrub by One Love Organics very familiar. Just like the Microfoliant, OLO's scrub turns into a paste when mixed with water in the palm of your hand. Here's why OLO's version is superior to Dermalogica's:
1. it is formulated without any of the unpronounceable chemicals found in Dermalogica's version. 100% of the ingredients are from natural origin, and 64% of the ingredients are derived from organic farming;
2. the scent is much more pleasant;
3. it is appropriate for all skin types, from oily to sensitive to rosacea-prone, because the ingredient list is short and contains none of the potentially irritating chemicals and citrus oils found in Dermalogica's version.
The powder-to-paste formula makes it easy to distribute the product evenly across the face and neck. The scrubbing ingredients are not large and rough like other physical exfoliants. Once you activate the product by adding water, it turns into a creamy paste that provides an even, gentle and non-abrasive exfoliation. Combined with the lovely scent, it truly feels like a spa treatment.
Multitasking bonus! This product can transform into 3 types of masks: exfoliating when mixed with water, clarifying when mixed with Greek or non-dairy yogurt, and hydrating when mixed with honey. The same instructions apply to all three masks: mix the product with equal parts water/yogurt/honey and apply to damp skin, leaving on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off.
A heads-up: if using in the shower, make sure to close the lid as soon as you use the product. If you get water or steam in the container the powder will get clumpy and won't shake out. I learned this the hard way.
