You guys are all well aware of my affinity for sustainability in fashion – I’ve hailed it over and over as one of my core values on this very blog. In fact, all of my choices are impacted by my ethical and environmental standards, a principle that extends organically into all aspects of my life.
I’ve found that the more I educate myself on the products and regulations that are out there, the more I cling onto these values, especially when it comes to my beauty routine. I now only seek out products that fall under the spectrum of my rigid criteria for what’s good enough to put on my skin.
That means that when I find something really good, you best believe that I’m not keeping it for myself. I recently got into Tree Hut’s new skincare line, particularly the Purifying Cleansing Gel, the Renewing Night Cream, and the Exfoliating Mud Mask (my fav! It’s so so good. You guys know I love a good mask).
It’s a new skin routine I just started and I’m in love with it for many reasons. First because the products are effective and made with all-natural botanicals, and second because they smell oh so divine. They all have that luxurious sensation, but they don’t feel overly precious, which is exactly my vibe.
Let’s break it down.
1. I start with the Purifying Cleansing Gel. It’s super gentle but it’s also thick and rich, which leaves my skin feeling like all the impurities are being washed out of it. Ok, so you know how some cleansers can make your skin feel super tight and stripped post-wash? This guy is the complete opposite of that: after rinsing, your skin feels bouncy, supple, and just simply really frickin’ great.
2. After cleansing, I mask. I’m obsessed with masking, you guys know it, I can’t shut up about it when I talk about skincare! it’s one of my favorite things to do at night, especially as I age 🙄.
The Tree Hut Exfoliating Mud Mask is amazing for many reasons. The clay consistency feels super purifying and contains little specks inside that give the sensation of gentle exfoliation while applying. It doesn’t dry really tight like some mud masks do, so you also feel like it’s infusing your skin with moisture.
And finally, it smells heavenly, which makes for a really relaxing spa-like sesh while you have it on.
3. Once the mask is all rinsed off, I finish off the ritual with the Renewing Night Cream, aaaahhh it’s like a pillow on your cheeks! It’s this perfect blend of density and lightness for that seamless absorption. It doesn’t feel greasy and overwhelming like a lot of night creams do. Instead, it’s smooth and hydrating, and also super soothing thanks to the chamomile components.
My skin type is normal, but EXTREMELY sensitive. I have to be very weary of what I put on it because anything with an iota of synthetic just makes it spiral into big time irritation mode. Not pretty.
It’s so important to me to find products like these that are comprised of natural, clean ingredients. Not only is it effective, but it’s just better for you. So literally, why not seek those properties out? It’s something you can feel good about and that also leaves you feeling good. Self-pampering sans the fuss – sign me up.
I always talk about how less is more. And these 3 Tree Hut products fulfill that prophecy.
Now go ahead and give them a try to see for yourself!
