I have been asked numerous times what products I use, past and present, for everything from skin care to random household items. I am going to start sharing more products I have used, in an order of series, this one being facial cleansers under $10. I will share a different face wash under $10 each day this week so check back tomorrow for the next product. In no particular order, starting with Burt’s Bees Garden Tomato Complexion Soap ($6 – $8).
Burt’s Bees Garden Tomato Complexion Soap is an affordable, natural bar soap geared toward oily and troubled skin. The main ingredient in this soap is tomato powder, a naturally acidic extract that helps balance the pH of skin. Tomatoes contain great antioxidants such as vitamin E and beta-carotene. This gentle soap will also help refine enlarged skin and soothe skin. You may have to get used to the scent of the soap but it isn’t horrible and it will not leave your face smelling of tomato. My sense of smell is uber strong, like a puppy, so I am very sensitive to smells. I found the scent to be new and unusual but not intolerable.
I have combination skin, whereas my chin & t-zone are sometimes oily while the rest of my face is normal. If you have combo skin like me, you may want to follow up with a good moisturizer as this soap may dry out the areas of your skin that are not oily. Or alternate with a different facial cleanser every few days. If you have never used a bar soap for your face, it is just as easy as liquid/gel cleansers. Clean your hands of course. Then simply create a lather from the cleansing bar using water, massage onto face & neck and rinse. You can then follow up with toner and moisturizer if that is a part of your routine. This is a 4 ounce bar and will last a good amount of time. You may not find Burt’s Bees Garden Tomato Complexion Soap in stores, it is often easier to simply order it online for about $6.
Price Range: $6 – $8
