Hydrating and Soothing Mask for Sensitive Skin

I used this product in conjunction with the Sensitive Skin Oil Cleanser for a week. These were the only 2 products I used on my face during that time. My skin is recovering now from a damaged barrier, cystic nodules, and irritation/redness after using a harsh product I should not have tried. The mask is like spreading applesauce on your face, it dries pretty fast and leaves skin comfortable and hydrated, and not overly moisturized. I keep mine in the refrigerator. The cold temperature adds to experience. List of Ingredients: -Spring Water hydrating -Fresh Pears (during winter they are fresh frozen) soothing, cooling -Marshmallow Root hydrating, moisturizing -Pear Fruit Distillate extremely cooling, contains natural form of Iron, hydrating, true to its name and delicious in natural scent -Peach Fruit Distillate rich in Vitamin A, excellent antioxidant, antimicrobial, peaches contain 80% water which makes them excellent hydrators, true to its name and delicious in natural scent -Seabuckthorn Extract healing, calming, fights rosacea mites -Honeysuckle Extract healing, cooling -Cellulose Gum natural thickener -Optiphen, paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative system

I recently had barrier issues because I used a harsh product on my face that damaged my skin and left it acneic and rough looking. I searched my arsenal of SC products, but nothing I have seemed to be helping. Then, I thought of Garden of Wisdom and their finished products and decided they might be the best option to take - all natural, plant based, no unnecessary ingredients. One of the items I purchased is this Sensitive Skin cleanser. It is truly gentle, effective at removing even waterproof mascara, and rinses clean without leaving a residue. My skin felt supple, hydrated and bouncy after just one use. Continued use of this cleanser only for nightly washing for a week helped my barrier to start recovering, decreased the redness and irritation I was experiencing, and did not clog my pores. This is an oil cleanser that has an emulsifier so it becomes water soluble and, therefore, rinses away. List of Ingredients: -Apricot Kernel Oil (cold pressed) rich in fatty acids, lightweight, soothes irritated and aging skin -Rice Bran Oil moisturizes, softens, high in fatty acids -Sunflower Oil conditioning, nourishing, protective, effectively relieves skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis -Argan Nut Oil anti-inflammatory, excellent for hair, soothes irritated skin, heals skin conditions such as eczema, sensitive skin, and dry skin, softening, high in unsaturated fatty acids such as oleic and linoleic acid -Hemp Seed Oil anti-inflammatory, emollient without a greasy residue, anti-oxidant -Cromollient SCE offers a silky emollience while creating a product which is water soluble and allows for a clean rinsing product I have been buying from Garden of Wisdom for about 3 years. I have mostly purchased DIY carrier/exotic oils in the past and had not placed an order in a long time, so their new line of finished products was new to me. Their line is as natural as you can get - they contain real fruit/veggie ingredients as well as other ingredients mother nature has to offer us. They are basic, clean, cheap, and effective, in my limited experience. If you are uber sensitive like I am, have rosacea, or just prefer your SC to be less chemical, then check out the Garden of Wisdom website. They have products for rosacea, sensitive skin, oily skin, acneic skin, and mature skin. It's also a great place to DIY, if you feel so inclined.

This product completely turned my skin around several years ago, and I’ve remained loyal to it ever since! I inherited my fathers extremely oily skin, and had continuous severe acne and blackheads. I was allergic to many products, and the rare few I could use did little or no good. Even tetracycline didn’t help much. This continued through adulthood. Thankfully, a coworker mentioned this tonic to me. It has 3 ingredients, smells a little like vodka (that dissipates in seconds) and is strong—it’s for BHA or AHA experienced skin. The first night I used it it burned just a little. I’d used up to 5% of another brand before but that other brand contained glycols that made my skin greasy. This GOW BHA Tonic left my skin clean. I woke up the next day with substantial clearing. Redness was reduced, large pimples were much smaller, some blackheads came out with gentle assistance. I used this every night for several months. My skin completely cleared up. My blackheads left and never came back. My bad acne scaring lessened considerably! Over a few months my family couldn’t believe the difference. And neither could I! The one drawback of the great product is that it can cause dryness and pealing. There’s a gentler version which is excellent (pH of 3.2), but I wanted to continue the results this version gave my skin. I’d never had clear skin before and I wasn’t gonna let s little pealing or dryness stop my newfound progress!! This did not flair my rosacea, nor my skin allergies. Over time, my scarring faded drastically and my acne completely stayed away. If only I’d discovered this years earlier!! My skin suddenly changed when I turned 55 and I require a bit of moisture and some anti-aging measures now. I started using the GOW Majik Green Tea Hydrosol after cleansing, and my skin loves it.. that keeps My rosacea at bay. I no longer need to use this BHA tonic daily, instead I use it 2-3 times per week. In the humid summers I now use the milder version on the days between. This BHA Tonic did what nothing else could do for my face. And now I’m stocking up because it’s being discontinued. This product holds a very special place in my heart (and my cupboard. I highly recommend!! (Not affiliated!!)
