Natural Face Wash

As becca wrote about a few weeks ago, sometimes our skin problems are because of our products, not our skin. After years of using over-drying or hyper-oily products, I've begun moving toward skin care products with more natural ingredients*. There are lots of books and websites with recipes for making your own natural face wash or scrub, but honestly I don't have the time for it. If I can't throw it on my face immediately when I stagger into the bathroom, my face isn't getting washed. (Gross, I know.) Lately, I'm in love with the ease of Yes to Cucumber! Face Cleanser Towelettes. They have a light, clean scent and feel like I'm washing with invigorating spring water. Even my husband likes them. But wipes don't get the down and dirty, so once a week I use St. Ives Apricot Scrub. It leaves my skin fresh and glowing. At $5 and $3 respectively, these two products provide a great and inexpensive natural face routine.

Here are a few more face washes and scrubs with natural ingredients:
Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser $8
Zia Natural Skincare Moisturizing Cleanser with Soybean $18
Kiss My Face Start Face Wash $12
philosophy purity made simple face wash $20
Mountain Rose Herbs Facial Scrub $18
Ole Henriksen sugar scrub $38

*More natural, less chemicals. I'm not necessarily looking for chemical free, vegan or organic products.

I've been thinking about making some of my own face products since I have so many allergies to natural ingredients. Although, I'd really like to find a simple wipe so I might give those Yes to Cucumber ones a try. I just wish they didn't have fragrance in them...

Just wanted to say that the Burts Bees Orange Cleanser smells divine! It's such a cool... orange smell! But somehow reminds me of the candy Dots (in a very good way). I highly recommend!

Very glad for your natural face wash post, too. For some reason bath and body products just feel that much better when they're natural :)
