Safe Organic Skincare Answering the SOS for my Oily Skin

Product provided for review.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Spring in Florida has brought temperatures in the 80's, the return of 24-7 A/C, and my oily skin trapping dirt and sweat like a lint roller.  This one-two punch of cleanser and scrub from Safe Organic Skincare has been keeping my face in check!

I try to make sure I wash my face twice a day, but sometimes at night I get the makeup off with a cleansing wipe and fall into bed. The next morning, it feels soo good to get a deep clean with Safe Organic Skincare Tea Tree Purifying Cleansing Gel

Safe Organic Skincare Tea Tree Purifying Cleansing Gel.

This cleanser is formulated with algae extracts, other plant extracts like lavender, calendula, and chamomile, and essential oils like tea tree and lavender.  Tea tree is excellent at detoxifying the skin, and is the primary scent of this cleanser.
I've tried this on it's own, and with my Michael Todd Soniclear, and it works well without over-drying.  My favorite way is probably with a very soft konjac sponge. My skin feels fresh, exfoliated, and really clean and bright, without feeling stripped or dry.  I find it gentle enough to use twice daily, if I'm not being lazy, but I have very oily skin.  Your mileage may vary if you have dry skin.

Once or twice a week, I like to do a little more exfoliating.  This tub has a generous amount of cleanser enriched with natural exfoliants that has a gritty, but not sharp feel on the skin.  It feels much like a sugar scrub to me, only the granules don't melt away like a sugar scrub.  It does smell sweet, like sugar and jasmine, which I really like.
There's really only one downside for me to this product, and that's the packaging.  It really should be in a squeeze tube rather than a jar.  For one, it's liquidy, and getting the right amount of the jar requires dipping my fingers in a couple of times - which can be a tricky proposition given that I prefer to use this in the shower.  The threads in the jar lid get crudded up with the exfoliant, too, which means that I have a hard time getting the lid on and off - especially with wet hands.

The exfoliator leaves my face so soft!  I used it again today, and just realized that I forgot to put on moisturizer.  Whoops! Regardless of which cleanser I use, I usually do enjoy following it up with my SOS Jasmine Moisturizer.  It smells so good, I just look forward to using it.

My nail art is inspired by the light, fresh cleansers, and how bright and soft I feel my face is after using them.  I used Orly Powder Puff as the base, and used tape to create lines with Different Dimension Hercules, a foil flakie metallic polish. I'm loving these new flakies.  They are so beautiful!
