Good morning, guys!
Please tell me I am not the only one already thinking about Christmas? I haven't had proper Christmas with my parents in about 6 years, so I can't wait for this year.. Moreover, Stumble Puppy is coming over (that is, if his flight itinerary isn't going to get screwed up by the airline company again). I can't wait to get to see him again. We will be getting to see Christmas Market in Riga and I honestly get shivers even thinking about it, so if by December I am all giddy please do forgive me. Sorry, I got sidetracked a little here :).
Anyhow, thinking about Christmas comes with raising unavoidable question, what do I give?? To my mom, to my dad, relatives and friends? So I thought I would introduce you with some Lithuanian manufacturers whose products I love and use on daily basis throughout this week, and would round up this series with a Natural Gift Guide, which will have a mix of products, including ones I didn't try, but won't mind getting.
So let's start by an awesome Face Scrub from a little Lithuanian company, called EcoFly, I believe they only have face scrub and some creams, which are available either at their physical store or online. I did take the photos of the store itself, however they turn out to be poor quality, so you would have to pay them a visit and see for yourselves. Besides manufactured products, they also have oils and materials for natural skincare making for reasonable prices. I have been very much into making my own skincare about a year ago, but have dropped it, since I feel I would rather leave skincare making for experts :).
So, let's look at the scrub itself, it has a very simple packaging, only with a sticker label, so maybe not the prettiest to sit on the shelf, but if it works, who cares? And let me tell you, it does work, this scrub together with a serum, which you will hear all about on Wednesday has lessened my flaking skin issue significantly. The consistency of the scrub is perfect, not too thin nor too thick, the grains aren't so rough that it scars your skin nor so soft that you can't feel it. After using it the skin gets really soft, and it even evens out its tone slightly, leaving it smooth and soft. You could even get away without applying any cream afterwards, but why would you? Also, I like the squeeze tub packaging, it is very easy to use, you don't need to stick your fingers in and leave unnecessary germs in the tub, and it doesn't create a mess. Moreover, the oils in the ingredients not only makes this a gentle scrub, but leaves your skin moisturized. I know you only supposed to use a scrub two to three times a week, but I might have been using it five or so times, just because it is really lovely..
So, if you are in the search of a very good scrub, which is also natural,and has no nasties, do give this a try! And don't forget to let me know which is your favorite one in the comments down below. Have a wonderful Monday!
