It's been a while since I've reviewed an item from the Vegan Box, but there's been a product that was in a box a few months back that was a real stand out, and I've been planning to review it for ages! So here it is... it's the Gentle Micro Exfoliant by A Bit Hippy, and it totally rocks! Here's why...
As someone who suffers from sensitive skin, it's rare to find products that both work, and don't cause irritation. So when I recieved this in one of my Vegan Boxes, I was super excited to try this!
When I first popped open the lid, I was surprised to find that this is actually a powder, not a liquid! I followed the directions, wetting my hands thoroughly before poring an almond-sized pile of the greyish brown powder into my hands. I rubbed my hands together, and the powder dissolved into a grainy, creamy mixture. The graininess reminded me of other exfoliation products - however you can rest assured that no "micro-beads" and free from the dangers and environmental impact that these products have.
I applied the solution to my face and neck, massaging it into my skin, which instantly began feeling smooth and moisturised. I was expecting to be left with grains all over my face (like when you go to the beach, and no matter how hard much you rinse, you just keep finding more and more sand!) But the mixture rinsed off easily, and left only smooth, supple skin and a beautiful fragrance. I was VERY impressed!
I now keep it in the shower and use it nearly every day on my face and neck. It's lasted me quite a while too, which is another bonus.
The ingredients are all natural, plant-based and vegan:Rice Bran, Fine Tapioca Starch, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (Coconut Derived Cleanser), Xanthan Gum (Plant Derived), Bentonite Clay, Marshmallow Root, Salicylic Acid (Plant Derived), Aniba Rosaeodora (Rosewood) Wood Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Peel Oil, Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli) Leaf Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Leaf Oil, Olibanum Oil.
None of the products are tested on animals.
I HIGHLY recommend A Bit Hippy's Gentle Micro Exfoliant to anyone looking for a vegan, cruelty-free, completely natural and effective exfoliant. I look forward to trying more of their products!
