Cure Natural Aqua Gel is a very fun exfoliant to use because after you massage it into your skin for a short amount of time it transforms into a rather milky gel that causes dead skin cells to pill on the skin. The next step is to simply rinse the gel and dead skin cells off of your face or body, and you will be delighted by the extent to which your skin is left soft, smooth, supple and luminous. I routinely use it on my hands and feet, and am thrilled by the results. Furthermore, it is fragrance-free, free of harmful chemicals and so satisfying to use! Purchase Again? I just opened a brand-new bottle! ($39.00 for 8.5 oz. from the Cure Amazon Store)
Sciabica's Lemongrass Olive Oil Soap: This beautifully aromatic soap boasts a luscious creamy lather, a delectable lemongrass aroma and the gorgeous scent lingers. It thoroughly cleans the skin and leaves it soft and moisturized. I am utterly obsessed with this soap, and if you love lemongrass, then this is a must-have. Purchase Again? It is on my list! ($8.00 from Sciabica California Olive Oil)
Derma E Scalp Relief Treatment: This lightweight water-based serum is formulated to balance, hydrate, soothe and nourish a dry and itchy scalp and leave it comfortable and itch-free. Purifying Tea Tree Oil and Menthol gives the scalp a cool tingle while the moisture-rich ingredients offer it much-needed relief. Since I have such confidence in the efficacy of Derma E products, I just knew that this would work, and it did. My itchy and dry scalp returned to its happy pre-drying shampoo state, and thankfully a nourishing shampoo and conditioner gave my hair back its luster. Purchase Again? Currently I am using the René Furterer Astera Fresh Soothing Freshness Serum, and I will have to decide whether I need another scalp treatment serum before I contemplate buying another one. ($15.50 for 1 oz. from Derma E and Ulta)Overall Assessment: I am quite pleased that I finished up 11 full-size products! What did you use up, toss out, give away or return in August? Any real winners or duds to report?
