Review time

I've finally finished up some products and I've been branching out and trying some new stuff!  Not unusual if you have been following my blog but it's been a little while since I remember doing a review.

boscia Cleansing Gel is just divine.  Barely there scent, thoroughly cleanses without stripping, it's just fantastic, I love it.  So I started reading up on the company and come to find out it's sulfate and preservative-free.  I had no idea!  $28 will get you 5mL.  You need only a tini tiny amount for cleansing so it will last forever. 

I'm also estatic about the ingredients.  I love natural products.  I've always dabbled here and there but when I became pregnant with my third, I really started to pay attention to what I was putting into and on to my body.  After I had my son, I went back to my usual "cheaper" I mean less expensive products.  One I will mention, which does a tremendous job at cleansing my skin is the L'OREAL 360 Deep Cream Cleanser.  I stopped using it because of the salicylic acid.  Well I went back to it and the very first use I somehow managed to swallow it.  Let me tell you, it hurts and it's disgusting.  The next time I use it, I get it in my nose and it's dripping down my throat again.  I have no idea what is going on.  My only thoughts are that I have really become sensitive to the chemicals in the products that I use.  Or I need to be more careful when washing my face to prevent ingesting my face wash. 

That aside, I love the boscia cleansing gel.  I have yet to swallow it but I feel more comfortable since it is made from Hydrangea leaf, jojoba leaf, willowherb and green tea.  Less scary I think.  I will let you know how it goes down!
