I’ve been under a lot of pressure lately and my skin has been feeling the effects. My skin has been temperamental – dry, dull and breaking out.

I’ve had my eye on Awake Organics for a while so I decided to pick out some products to try out.

We make plant based skin care and natural deodorant bursting with vitamin-rich fruit oils, delicious superfoods and Clear Quartz crystals.

For best results, apply a small amount of Sea Quartz plastic free cleanser to slightly damp face and neck. Massage in a circular motion until desired exfoliation is achieved. Activate the milkiness by adding a splash of water. Rinse with warm water. Avoid contact with water in the jar.

I’ve read so many rave reviews about this cleanser so I was excited to try it out. And I have to say wow, wow, wow!!! I’m completely blown away.

The formula is so unique and I have to say it’s one of the best exfoliating cleansers I’ve tried.

First of all the vibrant green colour is captivating, plus the aroma of sweet orange, blue chamomile and coconut milk is amazing.

I love how it transforms into a milky lather when you add a little bit of water. It gives my skin a deep cleanse and gently buffs away dead skin cells without stripping the skin. My skin feels thoroughly cleansed, soft, smooth and radiant.

I’ve noticed my skin is less congested and any blemishes heal faster. I’m really pleased I decided to try this out and I will definitely repurchase this when I run out.
