Spa Week + Alchemilla Exfoliating Face Wash Cream Review + Giveaway

For those of you who haven't taken advantage yet, there's still 4 days left of Spa Week! Spa Week is a biannual event where tons of spas offer $50 facials, massages, mani/pedis, scrubs, laser hair removal, etc.  Just go to spaweek.com, enter your city, and see what's available in your area!  You can read my previous review of my Spa Week in Vegas here.

So today I am reviewing a great cruelty free exfoliating face wash cream by Alchemilla.

The exfoliating face wash cream is one of their best sellers.  It quickly de-flakes and removes dead skin cells without harsh gritty particles so it's perfect for sensitive skin.  All Alchemilla products are natural, organic, and hand made using the highest quality plant ingredients.

I would definitely put this in the scrub category -- it's not really a face wash as it doesn't lather or remove make-up too well.  It works great if you pre-cleanse with a make-up remover or cleansing oil.  It comes in a 45g recyclable tube that reminds me of a tube of retin-a or toothpaste.  The tube comes sealed and you must use the lid to puncture a hole in it -- so it's nice and sanitary -- probably to seal in the organic goods!

The smell is very earthy and fresh.  The cream contains tiny spheres of natural jojoba and feels super gentle as you massage your face.  It leaves the skin nice and soft and is a great scrub to use every other day.  Skincare that's great for your skin and the environment?  Can't beat that!

And it's giveaway time!  Alchemilla is offering a tube of it's awesome exfoliating face cream wash to one of my readers.  Just fill out the Rafflecopter form below to enter!  (Sorry open to U.S. residents only.)

Thanks for the heads up! I didn't know about Spa Week. I never gone to a spa, I feel weird people (strangers) touching me x) I mean going to the hairdresser is already uncomfortable for me.

@SweetsThat's so funny -- I've always felt awkward about massages as well! I've only had one but it was actually really relaxing :)
