I am SO excited – I have a couple of really cool things to share with you over the next week or so. The first one is the answer to my LONG time search for a fabulous, cost effective, environmentally friendly skin care product. I know there are others out there, but they either didn’t agree with my skin or they were too expensive or I just didn’t like them. I also just don’t like washing my face. I know that’s weird, but it’s the truth.

All that changed when I was send a selection of product from “OURS” by Cheryl Hickey. Many of you will be family with Cheryl who is the face of ET Canada but this skincare line is totally separate from her day job. The skincare line is made of all natural ingredients and are silicone, gluten, paraben & phthalate free. There is no over powering odor & there is NO alcohol in any of the products. Along with the OURS Face & Body Exfoliator, EveryBody Lotion and my personal favourite, 3 in 1 Hydrating Oil, I also received a Konjac Sponge from washbeautyco, tea from Lemon Lily and a facemask from MaskerAide. Needless to say, I was PRETTY pumped to wash my face.
As a bonus I had a sneaking suspicion that this would make an awesome Mother’s Day Gift. I’m always SO BEHIND on my shopping for Mother’s/Father’s Day and I never know what to get. I also know that my mom is always running around helping other people, working & just generally trying to do everything all the time. So, I knew this would be an amazing gift for her to pamper herself and take some much needed “Me” time.
Here’s how it all went down. I applied the Face & Body Exfoliator to the Konjac Sponge (which is SO COOL btw) and applied to my face and neck. There is a lovely, natural scent and is very smooth and creamy on the skin. I rinsed it off and patted my face with a clean towel.
Next, I applied the Hydrating Oil. I have to say, I was VERY skeptical of putting oil on my face. I have quite greasy skin at the best of times, but I figured if it didn’t work, I could at least use it for its other purposes (hair treatment and/or massage oil) I applied it and I was instantly in love. My skin looked fresh & revived. It went on like a dream and the very light scent it has is AMAZING. When I woke up the next day, it still felt fantastic. I’m 100% sold.
Finally, the body lotion. I always put lotion on before bed so I wasn’t expecting anything special but again, I was amazed. Soft, clean, light. It’s perfect. It’s the perfect, all over, lotion.
GUYS – if you’re still looking for a Mother’s Day Gift…THIS IS IT! I felt like a million bucks. Add in the face mask and a hot cup of tea? Pure Bliss.
Have I sold you yet?
