I received products in exchange for my honest review. As always, all opinions are my own.
I love natural skincare products. Not only don’t I have to worry about what is in them, they often smell so much nicer than the commercial products on the market. I also love to support small businesses and work-at-home parents whenever I can.
Recently I had the opportunity to try three products from Bard & Finch, a new company that makes all-natural skincare products including scrubs, masks, bath salts, lip balm, creams, and lotions. I was sent their Sea Mineral Scrub, Face Mask Clay Powder, and Pink Grapefruit Face Oil for review.
Ingredients: Sugar, Sunflower Oil, Avocado Oil, Sea Clay, Sea Kelp Powder, Lemongrass Essential Oil, Peppermint Essential Oil
The Sea Mineral Scrub is my favorite of the products that I tried. It is scented with peppermint and lemongrass, which are my favorite scents so I think it smells amazing! It is also so easy to use. I keep the jar in my shower and scrub my face while I’m in there and it feels so good on my face. It is a sugar scrub so it exfoliates away the nasty skin and the peppermint feels cool and refreshing. I scrub until the sugar melts then rinse it away and it leaves my face feeling soft and smooth. I love, love, love this scrub!
Ingredients: Kaolin Clay, Bentonite Clay, Rhassoul Clay, Colloidal Oatmeal, Rosemary Essential Oil, Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil
This face mask is unique in that it’s a clay powder. To use it you add some water until it’s a spreadable consistency, rub it on your face and let it sit until it begins to dry; about ten minutes. To use it as a cleanser instead of a mask you rinse it off right away. Once I got the hang of how much water to use this mask is very easy to apply.
The smell is a little earthy for my taste, but I understand that it is made mostly of clay and oatmeal and if you’ve ever taken an oatmeal bath, you know that that stuff doesn’t smell like a bunch of roses. Even though I don’t love the smell, I do love the feeling of the clay on my skin. As with the scrub, it left my face feeling fresh and clean.
Ingredients: Sunflower Oil, Jojoba Oil, Rose Hip Seed Oil, Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil
This product was new to me. I’m not familiar with face oil and wasn’t really sure what it was used for. I checked the website and this face oil is said to banish excess oiliness by balancing the skin’s own oil production. Since I have oily skin, this is perfect for me.
The pink grapefruit scent is nice and bright, which I love. Citrus scents are my favorite as they seem to brighten my mood a bit. It comes in a convenient dropper bottle so you don’t have to worry about using too much. This oil didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy at all and it is a great compliment to the scrub and clay mask.
Where to buy
You can buy these products and many more at the Bard & Finch website. I loved all of the products and recommend them, but I especially recommend the sea mineral scrub. I love it that much.
