As discussed in our natural makeup and skin care series, the skin is the largest organ of our body and absorbs whatever is placed on it. Thus, it is important to use products that do not contain any harsh chemicals or additives. We are always on the lookout for high quality natural skincare lines. It is becoming increasingly common to find “natural” skincare items and see that the main ingredients are harsh chemicals and the last few ingredients are organic oils or essences!
We were thrilled when we approached by Gemstone Organics to review two of their products. Gemstone Organics uses 100% natural ingredients, many of which are sourced locally. They also use no preservatives or synthetics. What I found most interesting is that the company also infuses gemstone essence into their products, which has been used throughout centuries to heal and revitalize the body. The two products I tried were the Rose Quartz face creme and Rose Otto gem juice.
I used the face cream exclusively for 3 weeks and fell in love with it! I apply it to my skin after taking a shower, and it leaves my face feeling so smooth all day! It has a rose scent which smells heavenly. I loved that the ingredients were mainly oils:
Apricot Oil, Rose Hydrosol, Gemstone Essence, Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Cupuacu Butter, Babassu Oil, Borage Oil, Black Seed Oil, Aloe Vera Powder, Lavender and Rosemary Essential Oils
You can’t get any more natural than that! I also use it as a night cream after I remove all my makeup. The next morning my skin feels so soft. The best benefit I’ve enjoyed so far is that many of my fine wrinkles have completely vanished!
