Reviews of Some of The Everyday Diva Products

So far I have purchased the acne wash, the healing lotion, the BHA acne treatment, the vitamin c serum, a brown sugar facial scrub, the green french clay mask, a sugary pink grapefruit scrub in cube form, a few body washes, a few body sprays and a few ultra body butters. I love all of them. She also sent me testers of the AHA mini-peel. love!

Let me begin by saying that she (the owner) has a SUPER price point and uses exceptional quality ingredients that are safe and she avoids all the yucky, unsafe crappy junk most skin companies use today. I'd go check out her blog-she is listed in my favorites.

The acne wash has multiple ingredients to help cleanse the skin and also heal and treat acne. I've been using it for a month now. I use it twice a day (unless I decide to just use the scrub at night). It smells great to me and has a nice silky feel on the skin. It has a great lather and makes my skin feel soft. I have odd skin that is dry in some areas and then, of course, oily in my t-zone with those lovely hormonal chin breakouts. I am not sure how it is on makeup-but I don't wear a lot of makeup unless I go out and it's mineral makeup. So the few times I have worn makeup I have used my philosophy cleanser and then followed up with the acne wash. But I'm thinking a good facial wipe would work too.

The Healing Lotion is amazing. I use it twice a day, after my Vitamin C serum in the am and after either the aha mini-peel or BHA acne serum in the pm. First, it actually has ingredients that heal skin-our yucky acne prone old skin! It is a super lotion under my mineral makeup, but it also provides me enough moisture to keep my dry parts feeling undry and my oily parts not greasy up like a roadside oil slick. I love this and cannot say enough good things about it, but I have finally found a lotion that works on my skin and doesn't break me out.

The Vitamin C serum is amazing as well. It has all the ingredients we need to protect our skin but doesn't have any of the chemicals that are bad for us. Her site on etsy.com goes into more about the actual ingredients. What I want to tell you is: I use it all over my face, neck and chest, including dabbing some under my eyes. It leaves a nice smooth silky feel on my skin. I follow with the healing lotion. Done-my skin is looking better and better.

The BHA acne Treatment is another serum I use but at night. It is thicker than the Vit C serum but dries down and sinks into my skin very well. I love this and although it could prolly dry out some folks skin, it doesn't get a chance to with mine bc I use the healing lotion afterwards-which helps out. It is so nice to finally have a weapon for aging skin with breakouts! Some people might smell the tea tree oil, I don't. But I also use full strength tea tree oil on cuts and pimples. LOVE!

I recently purchased her Vegan Lactic Acid Brown Sugar Scrub with Lavender. WHOA. AWESOMENESS in a jar!!!!! It gives all these products an extra kick. I love that it actually dissolves (the teeny grains of sugar) so you cannot over-do the scrubadubbing your face. It lathers up well and smell so yummy. Afterwards my skin looks like a baby's butt, pores are gone and I am all glowy.

I love the green french clay mask. LOVE. You take the dry powder, mix w some water in your hand and rub it on your face-let it dry and when you wash it off-it washes all the junk in your pores right down the drain. How easy was that?? LOL! Love this and how it makes my skin glow and my pores go bu-bye!

The sample of the aha-mini peel has been a much appreciated one! It's another key to getting that glowy skin back-not sure what's in it but whatever it is, when I use it at night and wake up the next day-I look like I actually slept. I will be buying a full size one from EDD when the sample is gone! LOVE!

Now-all her body washes, scrubs and body butters are simply flawless. My body skin is typically very dry, as I age it seems to just get drier. Good stuff. I won't go into detail about what's in them-you can get that info on her blog or etsy.com store! They make me smell great, keep my skin feeling soft and that's all you need to know! LOL! I like her Hot Tropic one-it smells like a fruity drink! And I am obsessed with my most recent purchase of a pink sugar/creamy coconut combo. I have that in a body spray and body butter. It may sound cloy but once it starts to dry down, it is the yummiest smell EVER. Of course, if you do not like sugary scents, she has TONS to choose from. I am planning to try Bamboo next! All of the crubs, whether in a jar or cube form are fantastic-they foam up and scrub and clean without drying or being an oily mess!!!

But again, ALL of her items have no nasty chemical bad for you junk. AND her price point is so low it almost makes me go giddy when I shop her site! She donates to animal charities and she is starting a shelter for abused animals, Sammy's Sanctuary. This is one nice couple, doing great things for my skin AND for animals! It's a win win ladies!

I hope you will try her products. I have been so happy with mine I am tossing out all of my junk in the bathroom!!!!
You can find her store by going to etsy.com and searching "The Everyday Diva Co"
