We recently had the chance to try out some products from Sage & Hazel Apothecary. The products have been proven to change daily skin care regimen making skin care a treat, not a chore. To be honest, caring for my skin has been one of my last priorities, but as my skin begins to show signs of sun, stress… and wine, it has moved up the list a bit! I always like to use all-natural products and I am happy to say these actually WORK! The deodorant lasts and smells so yummy… (seriously yummy) while the clay mask and toner are revitalizing and leave my skin feeling soft and refreshed. We are soon going to be checking out the Wrinkly Wink and documenting the change to our skin… so stay tuned. In the meantime, fill your shopping cart with the clay mask, toner and deodorant!
You can find her products at various markets, be sure to like them on Facebook to stay up to date as well as on Etsy.
Green Clay Mask (18). Herbal Infusion Detox Steam (10-35). Calendula & Rose Toner (18). Wrinkly Wink Moisturizer (25). Deodorant (12).
