Lemonade Honey -Lemon Face Scrub
I came across NXG while scrolling through a friend’s pics on instagram. When it comes to skincare I love all things natural and generally I love all things pink and this brand gave me both these things. After going through their site the lemonade honey lemon face scrub seemed absolutely delightful and a definite “ must have”I have prepared loads of diy honey and lemon scrubs but I have always felt that they were a bit too harsh for my skin. I have been using this lemonade face scrub for about two weeks now and it is anything but harsh. It has a lovely citrusy scent and it really does smell like something edible lol but please save all the goodness for your skin.The packaging is very simple. It is a basic white plastic jar with a silver metal lid.
Upon application it has a bit of a sticky feel but through continuous circular motions on the face it just melts in.The ingredients and directions are included on the product info card that is emailed (yay for saving paper) after your purchase.I loved how smooth my skin felt after and the glow that it has provided with continuous use. When I opened the jar I was very impressed with the layer of golden honey above all those tiny exfoliating crystals below. All the ingredients serve a purpose and there are no potentially harsh additives included.
Honey – full of antioxidants which provide anti ageing benefits, it is a natural antibacterial which is great for acne sufferers and it is highly moisturising.
Sea salt-excellent exfoliant and also helps to cleanse pores deeply and balance oil production.
Lemon Peel- this ingredient not only adds to the yummy scent but it also enhances the clarity, glow and softness of the skin.
Turmeric –antioxidant, anti inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
Annatto Seed-high in antioxidants and also helps to fight sun damage.
Vitamin C-antioxidant properties and also plays a role in collagen synthesis.
Lemon Essential Oil- helps improve the overall complexion and helps fade dark spots
Grapefruit Essential Oil soothing and cleansing and helps to detoxify the skin
Vitamin E- anti ageing properties by supporting new skin cell growth and speeding up cell regeneration.
Overall I am really loving this face scrub and the 60 ml jar is definitely well worth the price of $30 ec. Agnes, the owner says that it will soon be available in the U.K so this is something to look forward to as I only visit home once a year. It is definitely a brand worth trying if you are interested in all natural skin care. Check out notoxgirls.com or @notoxgirls to see for yourself.
