Clean eating is an essential factor in successfully maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and consequently so are clean beauty products. Many of us often consider nutrition a top priority in our quest for healthy living, focusing on nourishing and healing our bodies from the inside out. It’s so important for us to also remember to protect and heal our skin from the outside, and what better way to do that than with all-natural, chemical-free beauty products, like YLLO: The Original Turmeric Face Scrub.
I’ve teamed up with YLLO to share with you their amazing, natural beauty product. You might be surprised to learn that this particular product’s main active ingredient is turmeric. Surprisingly, this golden yellow spice, which is usually reserved for cooking, works wonders for the skin, hair, and body. Turmeric’s antiseptic and antibacterial properties make it an effective and natural treatment for skin issues, and it helps provide a youthful glow to your skin. It is known to slow down cell damage, reduce pigmentation and skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, improve skin elasticity, and heal acne scars. YLLO: The Original Turmeric Face Scrub combines organic turmeric with other vegan, chemical-free ingredients like coconut oil, cane sugar, sea salt, and chickpea flour, so you rest assured you are only using quality and 100% natural products on your skin. Let me also preface by saying that turmeric is one of my favourite spices to cook with, so you could imagine how excited I was to have the opportunity to try a product that highlights this amazing spice’s beauty benefits.
Firstly, the packaging – the scrub comes in a convenient re-sealable bag, with easy to follow instructions on the back. The instructions suggest using a teaspoon per application. I measured about 20 heaping teaspoons of the dry scrub, which means one package goes a long way. (I also have to mention the charming wit written on the label!).
You simply mix the dry scrub with some warm water to form a paste then apply it to your skin, preferably with a sponge or brush. Like all scrubs, it has a grainy texture, however, I also noticed immediately how clean and fresh it smelled. You can actually smell the individual ingredients the moment you open the package – which means you know the product is 100% natural. This product stays true to its word – it leaves your skin glowing, it’s made with fresh quality ingredients, and most importantly, it doesn’t stain your face. I’ll be honest and admit that I had my reservations about this particular claim. I often cook with turmeric and am well aware of the fact that it easily (and quickly) stains the skin. Surprisingly, this facial scrub didn’t leave any yellow hue of the sort on my skin, but it did leave my skin feeling soft, supple, fresh, and glowing. On that note, they might vouch for stain-free skin, but my suggestion is to apply the mask before jumping in the shower, and ideally wear clothing that can be easily removed without coming into contact with the mask.
I loved this product, and what I love more is the fact that YLLO provided me with an extra package of their Turmeric Facial Scrub to give away to one of my lucky readers!
