I am very particular about what I put on and in my body (unless it’s chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream; in that case, I have zero standards and will eat it all). But really, I like to consume as many organic, fair-trade, non-GMO foods and beverages as I can — without breaking the budget, of course — and I prefer my skincare products to be just as wholesome. There is a difference between treating your body with natural nutrients and products versus pumping yourself with harmful chemicals. You can feel the difference, and you can see it.
That’s why I was so excited to partner up with Noruz Organics. It’s a Dallas-based, organic (as the name implies) skincare company whose products are so good for your skin while also making it feel like its dreamiest version. Trust me. I got to sample two scrubs, the Cinnamon Sugar Scrub and the Green Tea Scrub. I used the latter on my face two to three times a week, and my skin felt significantly refreshed afterward. Green tea is an antioxidant, and antibacterial (good, especially, if you’re prone to breakouts like I am), and it soothes the skin while reducing inflammation. Love.
I used the Cinnamon Sugar Scrub, which by the way smells like the best coffee cake you’ve ever tasted, on my entire body. Not only did I smell like a Yankee Candle every time I used it, I also sloughed away dead skin on my whole body while the raw sugar moisturized and exfoliated and the cinnamon restored suppleness. It’s just as heavenly as it sounds.
The best part is that you won’t find one lick of chemicals in any of Noruz’s products. It’s all organic essential oils, vitamins, and herbs that moisturize, scrub, and anti-age your skin to its most luminous state. Like, where was this stuff in my adolescent, horrible skin-awkward stage? Next on my list to try is the Coffee Scrub, for the obvious reason that I would love to smell like coffee all day, and also because coffee beans help with cellulite and evenness of skin tone. (I’m not too high and mighty to admit that I could use some more help with each of those.)
