A PURE Gift!
by Bridget Hudzik, Beauty Guru
This is an adorable holiday gift idea!
Not only is it's BASIC packaging adorable, it's BASIC "good for you" ingredients will say,"I love you, and your skin."
S. W. Basics (formerly known as Sprout) Full Mini Kit is made with nothing but the most PUREST of ingredients.
This means there's no need to pull out your Webster's to find out what's actually inside, and then being put all over your skin!
The Full Mini Kit includes travel-friendly sizes of everything you need for an all-natural, sustainable, weekend getaway: Cleanser, Toner, Cream, Exfoliant, and Body Scrub.
The products come housed in a Farragio cosmetics bag.
The Cleanser is gentle, non-drying, and contains no alcohol or soap - perfect for sensitive skin. It smells fantastic, and it's made with a traditional organic rosewater-and-glycerin base, and a tiny bit of organic tea tree oil.
Toner contains Raw apple cider vinegar, witch hazel, and essential oils of clary sage and sandalwood to neutralize pH, so your skin is less oily AND less dry.
The non-comedogenic Cream will not clog your pores. It contains wild-harvested shea butter, some organic extra-virgin coconut oil and organic extra-virgin olive oil. Perfect for face AND body.
Organic oats and almonds, combined with mineral-rich sea salt in their Exfoliant will leave your skin soft and glowing.
The last piece of the kit, Body Scrub - which is made with coarse organic demerara sugar and organic shredded coconut for exfoliation with some moisturizing organic coconut oil.
I kinda want to eat it!
All of the ingredients they use are either certified organic, Fair Trade, or sourced from small family farms.
They keep things holistic by preserving the integrity of their ingredients, keeping them as near to their whole, raw state as possible and making each product by hand simply, using only traditional methods.
They pride themselves on providing "no-frills skincare", using the fewest possible ingredients for effective skincare.
Fewer ingredients means higher potency and less of a chance for irritation, which is why their products are very effective even on super-sensitive skin.
