There’s one thing I don’t have a lot of and that’s time. No matter what I always feel like I’m rushing. That’s a mom thing, right? It’s no secret I am a skincare junkie. I have very dry skin and usually have a regime of several products. Well, I discovered Simple Sugars and decided to challenge their claim of 1 product + 2 minutes = great skin. While at first glance you may think these are just another sugar scrub, they are actually a skincare line.
You guys..I’m amazed!
I first discovered Simple Sugars from one of my favorite shows, Shark Tank. I remember the founder, Lani, was so well-spoken and intelligent. At the end of her pitch, I was surprised to find out she was only 18. Not to mention she partnered up with the one-and-only Mark Cuban. Boss babe alert! Lani had never been able to use a commercially produced product without experiencing skin irritation or a major rash. So she decided to make an all-natural product that would be safe for very sensitive skin, fun to use, and smell great too.
Simple Sugars is an all-natural skincare line, specially formulated for people with sensitive skin. This very convenient, super-effective skincare solution is made with nothing but the finest, purest, natural ingredients. Their facial scrubs (I love green tea), body scrubs and foot scrubs cleanse, gently exfoliate and thoroughly moisturize in one easy step so you never need lotion.
Okay, back to my skin.
So having time to get my skincare routine has been hard. Sometimes there is just no time. I decided to take Simple Sugars claim to task. I decided to resist using face wash, toners, oils, moisturizers, serums, body wash, and lotion. NO LOTION in this dry winter for my alligator skin. I used only the Simple Sugars handmade, all natural scrubs.
You can go NO-LO! Simple Sugars are intended for daily use and will replace lotions or moisturizers
To start, I wet my face. Then, I stirred my Green Tea Facial Scrub with Emu Oil so the oils mixed with the sugar. After applying a spoonful to my face in circular motions I wet my hands with warm water until all the sugar was melted. Finally, I rinsed and patted dry my face. My face was gently and perfectly exfoliated and hydrated.
My skin is brighter, smoother, and I feel more confident. My makeup applies smoother because of the gentle exfoliation.
I’ve also been using the Almond Body Scrub with Emu Oil and the happy feet line to get your feet pedicure ready.
You guys, I don’t know if I could ever not have these products in my life. I never apply lotion out of the shower now and my alligator skin is gone! I like to enjoy my scrub while I’m conditioning my hair. Like I said, I’m all about saving time right now.
Even the hubs is loving it. Simple Sugars has a Smooth For Men Line that is fabulous. Ladies, these products are still perfect for you but with scents more appealing to the guys. Pat’s were avocado and lime – yum!
The hubs is not into skincare routines that takes more than one product. Dead serious. So the Smooth For Men line is beyond perfect for him. He loved that he didn’t have to remember what order I told him to use products. He just needed two minutes with one product.
