My Description & Thoughts:
As a runner who is constantly removing sweaty, stinky shoes from my feet, I’m always excited about products that pamper my hooves. I also regularly have callouses on various spots on my feet. Keeping my keep well conditioned and pumiced seems to minimize those. Now, thanks to this product, I have another product to help with this. This Fresh Feet balm is rich (a little goes a long way) and smells herbaceous and citrusy. I’d deem the smell to be great for both men and women. I like to apply it so my feet right after showering. I put socks on right after I massage it into my feet, as the balm leaves a moisturizing residue on your feet until all of it is absorbed by your skin. It’s the perfect, refreshing, merely entirely organic treat for my runner’s feet!
Lemongrass Exfoliating Cleanser
Live Native’s Description:
“Essential Earth Exfoliating Lemongrass Cleanser combines nature’s purest and most effective organic skin cleansing ingredients. Absorptive Moroccan Rhassoul Clay extricates dirt and oil by actively assimilating with, and removing trapped particles deep within the pores. Silica rich oats provide for superior exfoliating. Lemongrass regulates oil production whilst Bog Myrtle kills common bacteria found in acne prone skin. Nutrient active Hebridean Kelp replenishes essential minerals and sulphur-rich anti-inflammatory MSM helps build vital collagen. Argan, Calendula and Coconut oils clear the pores providing the skin with essential fatty acids to moisturize, self-balance and give protection from bacterial infection. An aromatic blend of soothing Chamomile, Calendula and Liquorice soothes inflamed skin
Apply morning and evening for best results. Regular use will remove deeply embedded oils and cleanse clogged pores.
Hold a warm, wet face cloth to your face to relax the pores. Repeat 3 times. Mix a little in the palm of your hand with an equal amount of warm water until it forms a sticky paste. Roll the cleanser onto your face using both hands. Keep rolling, but don’t scrub! The clay in the cleanser will attract and absorb all the day’s dirt. After about one minute, rinse off with warm water. Lastly, rinse with cold water to close the pores and remove the last of the dirt.

My Description & Thoughts:
With an almost entirely organic ingredient list, I quickly became a fan of this product. Since I perspire so much during exercise, I enjoy a thorough clean every few days to get all of the “funk” off of my facial skin. This is just the product for that. This cleanser provides the perfect amount of friction to skin-it’s rough enough to leave skin feeling rejuvenated, yet gentle enough that it does not irritate skin. I’ve also enjoyed that it leaves a fresh, lemony, zesty scent upon my skin!
