Sundays have become my pampering days. I wash my hair and put on a deep-conditioning masque, and while that is doing its thing, I do a scrub on my body and a masque on my face, too.
When I'm all done, I take a nap.
All things that are good for the body and soul, if you ask me. This week, instead of a traditional masque, I decided to add in my Reviva Labs Pomegranate/Lactic Acid Peptide and Botanical Exfoliant. I've used it a few times already, and it's perfect for a shower-time masque, even if you don't have time for a full pampering experience.
I really like it when I can recognize so many of the ingredients in my skin care. Bentonite and Kaolin clay are great for absorbing oils and toxins, pomegranate and lactic acid help mitigate damage to the skin, and you can cook with thyme, bran, pepper, and oregano. Maybe season a nice tomato sauce...
You can definitely feel the exfoliating pieces in this scrub, but they're not harsh or jagged. In fact, you can use this scrub 3-4 times a week if you'd like, but I like to alternate with other masques for different outcomes. I also like to keep my skin guessing.
I love to do clay masques, but I don't always have the time to wait 15-20 minutes for it to dry. This exfoliant only takes 3-4 minutes. It doesn't dry hard on me, but rather the texture gets a little crumbly. The directions call for rubbing it off with a dry towel or your fingers, and then rinsing off the rest. I lightly scrubbed it with my fingers, and then rinsed off the rest in the shower.
I can't recommend the stable of products from Reviva Labs enough. Here's my review of their Seaweed Soap, and also their Hypoallergenic Mascara, and also their Vitamin K cream. I also recently reviewed their Elastin Serum and DMAE Cream. If you'd like more information or to purchase Reviva Labs products, please check out their Facebook page, or their website.
