This time of year it's all about sunscreen. But don't forget to give the rest of your skincare routine some thought. Even if you are a sunscreen fanatic, your skin can still suffer from those harsh rays, leaving it feeling dry and lined or looking a bit flaky. A good after-sun moisturizer is important but you also might want to consider adding a facial scrub into your routine to keep your skin smooth and soft.
Emerita's Microdermabrasion Face Scrub has a fine scrubbie texture that exfoliates gently without rubbing you raw. Ingredients like borage extract, chamomile extract and horse chestnut extract help reduce redness and inflammation and Vitamins E & C give your skin a dose of antioxidants. The product is unscented aside from a bit of pure peppermint oil and contains no parabens or artificial coloring. I've used it and it left my skin feeling nice and smooth.
For you Skin Deep buffs, the product is not rated yet on the database, but greenlagirl looked up the ingredients and took a stab at the rating in her product review post. She guessed it would be given a rating of 3 which is pretty good.
Emerita is a line of skin care products that was developed specifically for women over 40. But don't let that stop you from considering it if you are younger. I think it's a great product for any age. If you're interested in trying Emerita's products but don't want to take the plunge for full-sized products, you can order two different skin care samplers for $2 each. Each sampler contains 5 samples - one sampler has face creams and serums, the other focuses on scrubs, cleansers and toner. I ordered both samplers last summer and wrote about some of the products in my post about 'Magic Potions' for your skin.
Emerita has donated a full sized face scrub and 2 packs of product samples for me to send to one lucky winner! If you'd like a chance to win, just leave a comment on this post letting me know why you are interested in Emerita products. The contest will run through midnight, central time, Sunday, July 20th. I will post the winner on Prizey Fetch and send them an email. (Only one entry per person please and you must have a U.S. shipping address.)
Congratulations to Jess who said "I have sensitive skin and so I'm always on the lookout for new products that don't have artificial fragrances." I hope this product works well for you!
