I would like to take this opportunity to blab a bit on Thayer's. More specifically their Cucumber Witch Hazel Facial Mist.
I need to preface this by saying that my own personal skin care regimen is next to nil. That's right...I really don't do anything to my face. I don't even really 'wash' it. I know you are probably thinking...EWE GROSS...so let me explain...
I don't wash my face with soap or other chemicals. When I was a pre-teen and teen I battled with acne like most of us did. I had oily skin. Once I turned vegetarian that seemed to improve - as did the acne. I didn't really add it all up until later in life, to be honest. From that point on I had more of what they call 'combination skin'. And NOW that I'm getting older - and AGAIN - I'm being completely honest here - my combination skin only seems to be a problem this time of year...when it's bitterly cold and windy and dry both inside and out. For those of you who don't know I live in the Tri-State area of New York/Pennsylvania/Ohio and am placed right around that snow belt area.
Anyhow...back to...I don't wash my face...
Yeah...I know...I went off on a tangent but it was going somewhere I PROMISE!
For the past 20 years or so I really haven't used much on my face! I don't wear make-up often (if at all) and the few times a year I do it might only be a little bit of cover-up. And I'm talking like 2 or 3 times a year. When it comes to 'washing' I usually only use water and for the more oily times, I would use a natural toner such as Witch Hazel. I have used other brand of Witch Hazel in the past but Thayer's not only stepped up their game to the next level - they have been around since 1847!
Ever since I got my goodie box in the mail a while back from Thayers I have been LOVING each of the 4 items I received! This Cucumber Witch Hazel Mist is AMAZING! What I have been doing is spraying some on my Norwex Facial Cloth at night and wiping my face once with it. In the morning, after my hot shower, I spray it directly on my face. That's it! That's all I do for my face/skincare and it's been great!
I'm such a low maintenance person it's scary! I also LOVE that the mist is so refreshing that after I get out of the hot shower and spray it directly on my face it's a nice little WAKE-UP. A great way to start the day! The aroma of the cucumber is delightful, too!
And...I have to tell you...it put a smile on my face to know that the items they sent me were natural, cruelty-free, and vegan!
I can't wait to tell you more about Thayer's so stay tuned!
