Hi guys! I'm for real back this time! I had the worlds craziest summer and fall. I went to Indie Beauty Expo in NYC with Amanda of A Beautiful Pursuit! My husband and I moved. I worked a lot. I went on vacation with my fam. My grandmother passed away and a ton of other things happened that took a front seat. I'll get back into the groove of blogging!
But anyways! Let's get right to it!
As some of you know, I love Bambu Earth. I originally fell in love with their dry shampoo and that has spread to everything I've tried. Their products are top notch and have a broad selection! They recently rebranded and holy moley, their new packaging is beautiful and so squeaky clean!
A little about Bambu Earth! They started in 2009 and are handmade in Southern California. They are truly all natural, eco-friendly, sustainable, cruelty-free, fair-trade, ethical and holistic.
I also really appreciate how if the Bambu Earth team feels uncertain about an ingredient or the source- they won't use it. Bravo, Bambu Earth!
Let's talk about their products. I have The Complete Skincare Collection. Which includes their Makeup/Dirt Cleansing Oil, Rosewater Cleanser, Rosemary Toner, Petitgrain Moisturizer and the Pumpkin Oat Glow & Mask.
First of all, I can't have enough cleansing oils. I used to shut down the idea of cleansing my skin with oil. Seems pretty counterproductive, right? No way, José! It's amazing for your skin! Bambu Earth's Makeup/Dirt Cleansing Oil is no different. I put a few drops on my clean fingertips and massage all over my face. Then I use a washcloth to wipe off the excess oil. This Cleansing Oil takes my makeup off easily and leaves my skin soft and moisturized.
I follow up with their Rosewater Cleanser. I put a few drops on a reusable cotton round and gently wipe it all over my face. Then I rinse with warm water and I'm good to go. This cleanser doesn't lather up like what you might be used to. It cleanses your skin without foaming or sudsing. And with only 3 ingredients, you can't get much cleaner than this. This cleanser is suitable for all skin types and Bambu Earth describes this cleanser as a hydrating blemish control. Umm, a cleanser that with keep blemishes at bay without drying out my skin? YES PLEASE.
Next up is their Rosemary Toner. Toning may seem like it's not needed. I know for me, toning seems to be the thing that I leave out. But it's so important! This toner helps your skin maintain a healthy pH level and helps protect your skin from free radicals and bacteria. You can thank the raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar for that! Since it does have ACV as one of the ingredients, it does have a vinegary smell. But it doesn't linger, I promise! This toner has lavender hydrosol and rosemary essential oil too which helps mask the smell of the vinegar as well as hydrates and soothe your skin.
After toning, I apply the Petitgrain Moisturizer. This moisturizer means business. It has a ton of great ingredients to keep your skin moisturized all.day.long. It has unrefined shea butter, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil and petitgrain. All of those ingredients work together to provide deep moisture, protection and clear, soft skin! All without clogging your pores! I like to use it at night but you can use it day and night if you prefer! The world is your oyster!
Last but certainly not least is their Pumpkin Oat Glow & Mask! I hate pumpkin flavored things. No PSL's or pumpkin pie for me. But I'll jump on the opportunity to put those natural enzymes on my face! Pumpkin has amazing benefits. It has vitamins A and C and again, those awesome natural enzymes. I love how it's a 2 in 1 product! You can use it as an exfoliant or as a mask. I like to use it to quickly exfoliate my face in the mornings. It's so gentle so it won't strip your skin at all. But it gently gets rids of the dead skin to reveal what's been hiding underneath, that glow. For the GLOW, I just put a little bit of the powder in my hand with a few tiny drops of water and start scrubbin'! I rinse with warm water and ta-da! For the MASK, use the same measurements to create a paste and leave on for about 10 minutes or until it dries!
I've noticed that when I'm using this collection, my skin is clearer! And if I do get that annoying blemish, it doesn't stick around for as long as it used to. I'm a firm believer in holistic skincare and I truly believe that Bambu Earth has some amazing products!
