Do you have sensitive skin? I most certainly do. I had the chance to test out the Seventh Generation Facial Wipes and was pleasantly surprised with not only the effectiveness but the SCENT. How lovely to walk away with a whisper of lavender on your skin after you clean off your makeup!
A little beauty tip. Keep these wipes in your car (or your purse). As soon as I’m done for the day, I make sure that I get all my makeup off as soon as possible. Even if it gives me an extra hour of a clean face – I will take it. I am absolutely acne prone and every minute counts.
Here’s an overview of the Essential Oils used in Seventh Generation’s New Personal Care Products:
- Chamomile –A bright, crisp, sweet, fruity herbaceous essential oil. It’s soothing effects make it the perfect choice for digestive problems, insomnia, hyperactivity, and stress related illnesses. It’s calming, and more subtle in scent than other essential oils. The herb also has a medicinal reputation in the Mediterranean region for over 2,000 years.
- Lavender – Has a beautiful and versatile aroma, as well as anti-bacterial qualities – aromatherapists call it a must-have for first aid kits. This essential oil’s calming and sedative properties are known to help aid in relaxation, fight stress and promote sleep.
- Peppermint – Considered one of the more indispensable essential oils by aromatherapists, it should be part of every traveler’s first aid kit as it works wonders on motion sickness and general nausea, and helps headaches when applied to the temples. It’s strengthening, soothing and stimulating properties promote in concentration, focus and mental sharpness.
