During these very trying times, I am doing my best to  keep calm and stay productive. I am trying to remember to take care of myself, and while I would hardly claim that giving myself facials is by any means the most important thing to do, I will say that periodically slowing down to pamper myself is helping to center and calm me. As a Californian, I am among the citizens mandated to stay-at-home, and I am taking this very seriously and adhering to this mandate. It is, however, trying at times because one can begin to feel a bit like a goldfish swimming in circles. Therefore, I am trying to stay calm, be creative and get vital updates without allowing myself to live in a place of perpetual upset and panic. How are you coping? What are your strategies? I am sending you love and wishes of good health.

I thought that I would review a wonderful new product from Vitabrid for you that is worthy of consideration the next time you need, or want, to try a fantastic cleansing balm.
Vitabrid C¹² Daily-C Balancing Cleansing Balm Melt Away Sorbet is a balancing cleansing balm that can be used alone, or as the first-step in a two-step cleansing ritual. I personally prefer to use cleansing balms as a first-step in a two-step process because oil-based cleansers have a tendency to leave a little residue behind, and since I have normal/combination skin– I tend to prefer that second cleansing step. This cleansing balm has ultra-lightweight texture that melts into an oil that thoroughly removes makeup, dirt and dead skin cells, and it does so without stripping or irritating the skin. I like to massage it into my face and then I emulsify it by adding warm water, and that causes it to transform into a milky emulsion. I expected that I would have to double cleanse to remove an oily residue, but I was delighted to see that there was no oily residue, and that I actually didn't need to wash off any residue. It hydrates the skin and leaves it soft and smooth, and while it is not heavily aromatic, the lavender oil makes a faint appearance, but it is neither long-lasting, nor in the least bit imposing.

Directions: Scoop a generous amount. Massage over dry skin. Rinse thoroughly.
According to Vitabrid,

Daily facial cleansing balm quickly melts into an oil, thoroughly removing makeup and impurities without stripping skin moisture, delivering Vitabrid CG, a stabilized form of active Vitamin C, that activates in water for powerful antioxidant protection while Madecassoside helps prevent dryness and soothes irritated skin.

  1. I'm a fan of this too and even found that the fragrance didn't bother me. They have such great products. This sale won't be on forever so it's good to grab it now.

    1. I am so happy to hear that the fragrance doesn't bother you, Marcia! This is such a great cleansing balm! I agree with you about the sale, this is certainly the time to grab one!

  2. The fact that they include a little spoon sold me on it right away. I've been trying to work on being more consistent with my skin care during the shelter in place in order to help my psoriasis which is a HEAVY flare up.

    1. The little spoon is definitely a very nice touch! This is definitely a nice time to take care of oneself, and a little pampering can take the edge off of the stress that we are all feeling while we are sheltering-in-place. I imagine that the stress has contributed to your psoriasis flare up! Take good care of yourself!
