I must admit I have a thing for pretty packaging so when I love a product and it looks good, I like to display it. In this new blog series, I will share my views on products and show you what makes it on the M+E Shelf.
Before I start, you have to know that the products I will tell you about in this series are the ones I actually use. So here are three things about me:
This is what my shelf currently looks like…
For the longest time I’ve love a strong, deep facial exfoliation, the kind you get from coarse apricot kernel scrubs. As my skin is aging and I realize the damage these brillo type scrubs can do, I'm gravitating towards much finer, gentler scrubs. Come RICE & CLEAN by Plant Apothecary, this product was carefully chosen when we decided to sell Plant products. It got amazing reviews and was recently nominated by Refinery29 in their Beauty Innovator Awards, more details here.
One of the judges said "A pinch of this powder mixed with water creates a paste that makes your skin feel like it was frolicking with a herd of cashmere-wrapped kittens." So of course, I had to try it.
RICE & CLEAN is made with only three ingredients
My first thought was that this product requires a little practice…too much water and the product runs through your fingers, too little and you end up with a doughy ball. Once you've got the perfect consistency, which is similar to baby cereal, it is amazing.
Another way to use it, is to dip moist fingers in the jar and scrub the feathery powder on your wet face.
Given that this is a dry product, it makes a great travel companion…Bonus!
Note: whenever I try a new product, I try it on its own to see how the actual product works and to make sure I don’t have any skin reactions from it. After rinsing RICE & CLEAN, my skin did not feel dry or tight as with other cleanser, which means that it does not overly strip your face of its natural hydration…Another bonus!!!
You should definitely try this product, I promise you will love it. It's like nothing you've ever tried.
