Embrace Thy Bare Face

Going "au naturale" is something most women fear. No makeup means I can't hide my blemishes, dark/puffy circles, uneven skin tone, dark spots—the list goes on and on. I'm in this category too; I have uneven skin, puffy under eyes and the worst—cystic acne. If you're not familiar with cystic acne, it's very different than traditional breakouts. They tend to form in clusters and are those extremely painful, under-the-skin pimples that are usually bright red. They take weeks to clear up and always leave a brown/purple scar behind.

I've been searching for that perfect skin care routine consisting of a face wash, moisturizer and eye cream, all suited for my oily, acne-prone and extremely sensitive skin. When I say perfect face wash, I mean one that gives me a deep clean without drying out my skin, helps control my oils, and doesn't break me out. I also look for an unscented face wash and an organic one if possible. After all, your skin is your body's largest organ and you want to treat it like so. Well, my loves, I've finally found the perfect facial cleanser— Oz Naturals Ocean Mineral Facial Cleanser*.


This facial cleanser is hands down amazing. It's mostly organic without harmful ingredients like alcohol, sulfates and parabens, plus it's safe for all skin types! The top ingredients are organic rose hip oil, vitamin E and borage oil— all natural ingredients that are safe for sensitive skin yet effective at cleansing the skin and clearing pores. There's also no scent that I notice, so that's a major plus in my book! I used this cleanser for over a week to test it out and my skin has never been better! To prove it, I took a bare-faced selfie. No joke.



I feel more confident in my skin now more than ever, and I owe it all to this facial cleanser. Do I still have puffy under eye circles? Yes. Do I still feel more comfortable with makeup so I can cover my acne scarring? Yes. However, this face wash has given more confidence in leaving the house without makeup.

I challenge you to try this face wash and take a bare-faced selfie! We're all beautiful no matter how we look, and we deserve to feel like we are!
