FACE: Mrs Frisbees All Naturals Facial Wash

So Im going to get straight to the point.  I have a love / dislike relationship with the Mrs Frisbees All Naturals Facial Wash.   

 I have been using this product for little under two weeks now, and purchased it from Amazon at the cost of £8.

However I find that everytime I use the facial wash which has been twice a day…. I either wince or better still hold my breathe momentarily to prevent breathing in the scent.  In my personal opinion it’s just that little bit too over powering and strong almost to the point that I most likely wouldn’t purchase it again despite feeling that the product has been an absolute dream in cleansing and cleaning my face without the stripping feeling.

The product contains roman chamomile and sea buckthorn oil.  Sea buckthorn oil is known from its healing and rejuvenating properties whilst chamomile is known for its calming properties… However I just can’t get passed the scent.  Normally I actually like the scent of chamomile, however with this product it is completely over taken by the sea buckthorn oil! 

  
That said, the product comes nicely packaged.  Dark blue plastic bottle which is great for natural products and helps to reserve their life span, and on the bottom the expiry date is also printed.

  
Whilst this product didn’t quite suit me, there are others in the range of products by Mrs Frisbees, so maybe in the future I’ll try something else with scents that I much prefer.  I’ll keep using this facial wash (with a washing peg on my nose) until it’s used up – as I don’t believe it waste.  

I’d be interested to hear if you have tried any of the other products from Mrs Frisbees range …Are there any that you can recommend?   

Thanks for reading…

BEAUTY: Eau Thermale – Vichy, Avene…

But it’s not just any type of canned water…. it’s pure water!” I can hear the conversation now and even at aged 30 something the justification of such a purchase to my mother makes me shudder!

I also know if my mother should be reading this now she would be giving me serious side eye to the sheer fact that in her opinion I’m wasting my money on …..canned water!

But my lovelies Eau Thermale…is water in its purest form. Actually it’s ingredient is quite simply Spring Water. I currently have two brands on the go at the minute. No particular reason although I do tend to sway towards the Avene brand more so than Vichy (which I received previously as part of a beauty box subscription). Avene’s Eau Thermale costs around £4 from Boots. So with that said I suppose it’s only right I share how I use ‘said’ pure water.


Uses On The Go:

In the summer a spritz over my face to cool me down..
Or after the gym, once I have showered a spritz on my face and I just let it sit which I find really hydrating.

As a car owner I have been known to pop the hood of my car bonnet and tinker (tinker = check washer fluid levels and fill it or check oil levels and if replace it) I can in no way shape or form add ‘mechanic’ to my resume/CV! however if and when I get caught out and I’m in a rush spritzing this over my grubby hands brings them back to clean again, for that reason I always make sure I have a can in my bag.

For my mini me….as kids go bumps and scraps happen at the park so when my little dear has dirt in a wound or a scrap which needs urgent attention I can wash it clean right then and there….I call it ‘mommy’s magic water’.


Uses At Home:

I also use Eau Thermale as part of my facial care routine, to cleanse my face I either spritz the Eau Thermale over my face following this with a gel based cleanser product and then rinse or I use it to dampen my cotton pad to remove my cream based cleanser ….

It can also be used for:
Sunburn,
after anti-acne treatment,
On nappy rash,
On various forms of irritations such as razor burn,
After hair removal

Have you tried any Eau Thermale’s, what do you think ? And how do you use them?

TTFN!
