FACE EXFOLIATES & MASKS

Have you used a face exfoliate or face mask before? You can do these at home, and yes, it is lovely. But, like always, you need to be careful to check what is lurking in the ingredients of the ones you pick up at the supermarket or chemist.

Our daily cleansing is great for moving away dirt, grime and environmental pollution from the skin on our face. But, every now and then our skin needs a little more help to move and remove dead skin cells, and then to hydrate and nourish that new skin underneath.

Face masks can be used to treat several skin conditions like congestion, dryness, dullness and acne. Whereas an exfoliate is primarily used to remove dead skin cells and aid in clearing impurities from within the skin. When used together, you end up feeling naturally radiant!

Ingredients wise many mainstream exfoliates and masks can have stripping alcohols, use microbeads (basically plastic) as the exfoliate, and have “fragrance” in them that are hormone disruptive. In your Wanderess Natural Beauty Box we feature 3 all natural, non-toxic and high performing face exfoliates and masks.

Natura Skincare – Cacao and Honey Rejuvenating Mask

Natura Skincare is an all-natural, handmade, eco-luxe skincare company founded by mamma of 3, Monica Solinas.

Conscious of taking care of her skin, Monica believes it’s never too young to start. “My children have sensitive skin, suffering with eczema at times and my eldest also has asthma, so I always thought I was being conscious of what I put on their skin and which products I used. Education is power”. It wasn’t until learning about natural skincare and researching ingredients, that Monica was shocked to find products she believed to be toxin and chemical free, unfortunately were not. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, Monica started making a few products which she tested on herself, her family and  her friends. And after receiving  a lot of positive feedback on how the products made their skin feel and smell Natura Skincare was born.

SURPRISE

Black Chicken – Essential Oil Perfume  – Transcendence

Black Chicken Remedies is the brainchild of Chey Birch. She began experimenting with aromatherapy in 1989 in Bondi, Australia. Chey was very conscious we absorb what we put on our skin. She wanted to find a way to reduce the chances of developing chronic health conditions, to assist the body in a natural way and harness the therapeutic power of natural oils to enhance wellbeing, physically and spiritually.

Black Chicken Remedies benefits are not only absorbed through the skin but also through the olfactory system.  The fragrance itself, with hints of the tropical and deep surf notes, is a powerful activating factor.  Designed for men and women, it responds differently with each, and the unique experience it provides transcends gender.

Black Chicken’s signature Blend perfumed pocket oil is an instant mood elevator.  Apply to pulse points on neck, wrists and inner elbows for a powerful boost to well-being anytime, anywhere.

This concentrated blend contains the divine oils of Sandalwood , Geranium Bourbon, Patchouli, Lavender, Carrot, Ylang Ylang ,and Nutmeg. 100% natural pure plant extracts, no alcohol, no toxic chemicals.

The scent is elastic and responds to your body temperature. It absorbs through the olfactory system and into the body so this combination of essential oils communicate with your brain enhancing your wellbeing, and in the case of  Ylang Ylang, this key oil has been known to significantly enhance your love life!

Effects on the mind body experience of the essential oils:

Sandalwood – Calming, reduces stress and tension

Geranium Bourbon – balances the nervous system, reduces anxiety and raises the spirit

Patchouli – Helps to ground and integrate your energy

Lavender – Helps alleviate stress and promote personal renewal

Carrot – Has a cleansing effect on the mind and relieves feelings of stress and exhaustion

Ylang Ylang -Can help with feelings of self confidence. Its heavy, sweet and seductive aroma has aphrodisiac properties

Nutmeg – Invigorates and stimulates the mind

Why switch to a natural perfume oil rather from a regular alcohol based perfume or fragrance?

“One study showed many well known perfumes can contain up 250 synthetic chemicals, that are toxic. Why pay big bucks to risk your health when there is a cheaper, healthier alternative made from plant extracts cultivated by nature not in a test tube” Says Chey Birch creator of Black Chicken Remedies.

“Standard alcohol perfumes are synthetic, they have been over manipulated so any trace of natural ingredients isn’t recognised by the body and they have lost their ability to communicate with the body.”

Roll onto pulse points throughout the day, whenever you feel you need a freshen up.

100% natural ingredients. Essential oils of Sandalwood, Geranium Bourbon, Patchouli, Lavender, Carrot, Ylang Ylang, Vitamin e and Nutmeg in a base of Sunflower oil.
