Laurel Whole Plant Organics

Man, this time of year has really not been so nice to my skin. Having a dry, acne-prone complexion requires a strange balance of hydrating yet clarifying products, which can be kind of hard to come by if we're being honest. I really did my research trying to find a line to calm my face a bit, and that's when I landed upon Laurel Whole Plant Organics. Now, this is a line I've been hearing about forever - so many green bloggers swear by the beautiful, natural ingredients and mixtures used by this gorgeous brand, so I was pretty psyched to be able to try it out.

The first product I tried was their Facial Cleanser: Oily/Combination*. The brand actually offers two different cleansers based on your skin type (there's oily/combo and normal/dry) and, while I really could've gone for either, I settled upon the oily/combo option for its impressive ingredients list. This creamy formula uses French pink clay, apple cider vinegar and honey to completely detoxify your face of any dirt, oil or makeup. I've personally been loving using it int he money to wake up my skin, and find that it works great to clarify my complexion without leaving it feeling extra dry or stripped of oils. I've been so impressed with this that it has actually joined my beloved Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser as a morning skincare must-have. My skin loves it, and the combination of ingredients works well to soothe and tone my sensitive face.

Then there's the beautiful face mask. As you might recall from my May Lindstrom post, honey-based masks work really well for me, so I was super excited to try out Laurel's Honey Berry Enzyme Mask*. The mask combines raw honey with jelly, strawberries, blueberries and grapefruit, making this one of the sweetest-smelling concoctions I've ever had the pleasure of using. Laurel has hailed this mask as a cult-favorite, and after just one use I could already see why. It leaves my skin hydrated, exfoliated, detoxified and glowing after just fifteen minutes - I mean what kind of witchcraft is this?! I usually use this on Sunday nights, when I apply just a bit to moist skin for about fifteen minutes before washing off. If you've ever used the Leahlani Mermaid Mask, this has a similar consistency and sugar-y aroma (though I'd say this one smells more like a summertime smoothie). It's honestly just an all-around fab mask, and one I'd probably recommend for any skin type. It'll leave your skin radiant, guaranteed.

Have you guys tried anything from Laurel before? I've already picked out several more products I'll be begging for this Christmas, let me tell you..
