September’s Detox Box was a throwback to a brand I haven’t used in years, but it was one of the brands that introduced me to green and effective skincare. I fell head over heels with their pumpkin enzyme peel years ago and this box became a throwback for me. Back to a brand that creates beautiful herbal and botanical goodness. The 3 products in this months subscription were no exception. I’ve been using all 3 both day and night with amazing results in terms of redness relief and hydration! My skin is so dewy and plump! So here are my thoughts and if you have a chance to grab this one still, I personally recommend it:

1. OAT CLEANSING FACIAL POLISH: this cleanser is cream based and contains granules that will help gently exfoliates as you cleanse. It is not an intense exfoliation, and while I do prefer one that IS more intense.. that type of treatment should not be used daily. So, a very gentle option in a daily cleanser is a great option to have to continue to help your skin slough dead skin cells. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling moisturizer and not stripped in anyway. I generally prefer oil cleansers but this is a great option for those who don’t and still want something that doesn’t strip away at your skin barrier and natural oil production.
2. CARROT SEED SOOTHING FACIAL OIL: This oil is incredible.. very versatile and absorbs rapidly upon application. For day time, I use one pump and two at night. When I first started to use natural skincare, my go to facial oil was a blend of organic rosehip oil (my favourite carrier oil for the skin) and this was boosted by the addition of carrot seed oil. It is know to help you age gracefully and is even a natural protectant from the sun (though this is not to be used as an SPF). Carrot seed oil also helps repair sun damage and can smooth redness. I love this oil and truly recommend it!
3. CALENDULA ESSENTIAL HYDRATING CREAM: THIS is a product I’ve been searching for. I’ve wanted a thick face cream for some time now but none of them that I’ve tried have really done what I hoped for. This cream is intense, rich, soothing, thick, and leaves my skin dewy and plump. It layers perfectly over the carrot seed oil without moving the other product on the skin or pilling.
I’ve really enjoyed using this 3 step with one of my favourite Rose toners. All meant to hydrates, moisturize and reduce redness in the skin. During this seasonal change over, I’ve been able to avoid lack of hydration which ultimately leads to breakouts or dryness for me. I highly recommend giving NAturopathica a try via this months box.
