I can’t say I’ve been great about taking care of my skin. I grew up in a coastal beach town and practically lived at the beach. I have a serious love of the sunshine and enjoy basking in its glory! Water and sun are my equivalents to peanut butter and jelly. It’s always good! That being said, I’m guilty of exposing my skin to tons of sun without sunblock…or at least not nearly enough. But I’ve been on a mission to be a more responsible adult and take better care of my skin. These days I’m more obedient using sunblock.
Unfortunately, I’ve always been nagged with a little acne. I also feel the need to wear foundation in order to get an even all over skin tone, but I don’t really like wearing it. I’m not a fan of how it feels on my skin. Foundation tends to feel oily and can be messy….YUCK! That’s why I was excited to give the Natural Facial Regimen (cleanser, toner, and moisturizer) It’s The Balm a try and give my skin another chance.

How it works
Here’s a breakdown of the 3 step regimen from It’s The Balm. You can find the full ingredient list and their benefits at the Etsy shop. This amazing Natural Facial Regimen was also recognized as a Green Scene Mom Award Winner!
Step 1: Oats and Aloe Cleansing Facial Scrub
This gentle yet effective cleanser combines Castile Soap, Organic Aloe Juice, Raw Honey, Witch Hazel and Colloidal Oats for a thorough clean and delicate exfoliation. It’s not too gritty, so you can use it every day to cleanse and gently exfoliate your skin.
Step 2: Witch Hazel Toner
This is a great addition to any facial regimen. Made with natural witch hazel and a light blend of beneficial essential oils, this toner will bring out the best in your complexion. Witch hazel is a natural astringent that is gentle enough to use on even sensitive skin. Brighten, tone and even out your skin tone with this step. If you have very sensitive or dry skin, you can use this once a week.
Step 3: Liquid Moisturizer
This is an important step in the regimen. The liquid moisturizer is made with a blend of rose hydrosol, organic aloe juice, rosehip oil, grapeseed oil, vegetable glycerin, rosemary extract, vitamin E, tea tree oil and lavender essential oil. It’s the perfect blend of ingredients to lightly moisturize your skin without harsh, pore clogging ingredients.
For the last month I’ve been using It’s The Balm’s cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. I’ve also been wearing sunblock like a good girl and make-up almost daily. This trio has been great at cleansing my skin of makeup and sunblock residue.
My skin feels smoother and softer. My acne has diminished, leaving my skin clearer and much healthier looking!
I love the way my skin feels after using these products. I can feel the grime leaving my skin, and love the mist of the moisturizing spray. It’s a very rejuvenating processes with wonderful benefits to my skin. Each product has a very soothing scent that is pleasant without being overpowering. I look forward to seeing my skin continue to flourish with the ongoing use of these products!
