LIVE CLEAN {Fresh Face} – Smoothing Facial Scrub

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (@makeupbytess), you may have seen me tweet yesterday morning that I was going to try the Smoothing Facial Scrub from LIVE CLEAN {Fresh Face}.

Many of you were asking how I liked it …

Here is my first impression:

  • I was very impressed with how small the granules were. I find the smaller the granules, the more gentle it is on our skin. In the instructions it says it can be used 3 times a week where most scrubs recommend we use once a week.
  • The fragrance of the product was very light and mild. You can tell it is made of natural products (cornmeal).
  • After rinsing my face, my skin felt smooth and looked a bit more refreshed and polished.

You obviously have to try a product more than once to get a better sense of if it works for you or not, but so far I am really impressed!

Let’s Go Green: LIVE CLEAN {Fresh Face}

Have you ever tried a skin care line or cosmetic company that was eco-friendly and cruelty-free?
I have to admit, I think this may be my first time! {eeek! Special moment! Lol}

LIVE CLEAN contacted me to try out their {FRESH FACE} line and I happily agreed! Why was I excited?

  1. Weeks before they contacted me, my friend and I were actually talking about LIVE CLEAN. She asked me if I’ve ever tried their products and how she was going to head out to Wal-mart to give their lotion and shampoo & conditioner a try. She has very sensitive skin (eczema) and tends to react to products easily. i spoke to her after her initial use of the lotion and she told me she received no reaction. That was a GREAT SIGN!
  2. LIVE CLEAN is an eco-friendly, GO-GREEN line. 
  3. Completely vegan (no animal products or animal by-products) and are cruelty-free (not tested on animals).
  4. Hypo-allergenic and dermatologist tested.
  5. Claims to be great for extremely sensitive skin.

After receiving their products I also learned that:

  • Their products are plant-based and contains Lavender, Cucumber Chamomile, Milk Thistle, Aloe and Jasmine.
  • Free of all these chemicals found in shampoos, skin care, etc. such as, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Diethanolamine (DEA), parabens, and phthalates. 
  • Packaging is recyclable and ‘made from “virgin” materials, making it easier to recycle than most plastics’.

First up to try … Smoothing Facial Scrub. I’m a huge fan of scrubs and I just finished my St. Ives exfoliator (perfect timing!).
