I've always been a huge fan of Origin's Never A Dull Moment facial scrub because it is gentle, works really well, and honestly, I hadn't come across anything comparable... until now. Collective Wellbeing has made the perfect scrub (sorry Origins) and it's less expensive, uses all-natural ingredients, and is so gentle I've used it every day without any irritation. First off, I have to talk about the company, Collective Wellbeing, because they definitely practice what they preach - they have taken all these wonderful things in nature (such as carbon - who knew this could be a cleanser) and bottled them up into totally effective products. 1% of their revenue goes to environmental organizations (gotta love that), they are cruelty free and none of their products contain parabens. Okay, back to the real reason I am posting - their Honey Buff scrub. This stuff is ridiculously awesome and at only $15.00 for the full-size tube, it's a total steal. It contains honey (duh), rose hip seeds and orange peel powder (which gives it this lovely citrus scent) and after only using it for a few days, my skin was brighter and felt incredible. The scrub also just launched in a travel size ($4.99) which I love because it means you can try it for next to nothing. The other stand-out from this line is their Night Balm ($27.00) which is like silk on your skin. Made up of Shea Butter and Lavender, this thick yet non-greasy cream goes on smooth and boosts hydration overnight. I am a religious follower now and have been using it every single night. In fact, I'm so obsessed that I actually went out to Whole Foods this weekend to see if I could find Collective Wellbeing so I could try their day creams (FYI, Whole Foods does carry the line, just not the FULL line ). Anyway, look past the dull packaging (which definitely does not do the line justice - I wish I could see some white packaging with delicate flowers or something) and give it a try. You will be seriously hooked- I promise!
