Hi guys! Today I’m going to talk to you guys about these AMAZING skincare products from FATFACE Skincare. Before ordering my FATFACE products, I didn’t really know much about clean skincare. I just naively assumed that company’s wouldn’t be putting crap in their products. What we put on our skin should be helping us, not hurting us right?! However, just like most food company’s aren’t looking out for our well being, cosmetic company’s aren’t looking out for our well being either.. I started learning about/eating paleo about 2-3 years ago but never really thought much about what I was putting on my body. It wasn’t until the past year that I really started looking into “clean” skincare. That was when I discovered The Purely Primal Skincare Guide by Liz Wolfe, author of Eat the Yolks. In it she discusses common skin problems, ways to solve them as well as a wealth of information for how to get healthier skin, hair and nails without all the nasty chemicals commonly found in major cosmetic brands. She truly opened my eyes to how everything we put on our skin can affect our health.
In Liz’s book she includes alternatives to the normal products we would use every day. There are examples for how to make homemade products or links to products that she endorses. Now I’ll admit, I do follow some of these alternatives but there are some products that I just keep using. I know they’re not great for my skin/hair/etc but some habits are hard to break! As of lately I’ve been using a combo of some homemade alternatives with some of the FATFACE products. I stumbled across the FATFACE products on Instagram one day. Someone I followed had tagged their products and I immediately went to their website. Now mind you, I’ve found that most of the “clean” products are more expensive then what you’d find in the store but remember that you are paying for a high quality product! Not only are these products made with high quality ingredients but they are homemade in a small facility by a small company. There’s no guessing where your product comes from! The FATFACE crew is truly dedicated to making sure you get great quality products to help you love the skin you’re in!
Now I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical of how well this stuff would work. Lucky for me (and you!), FATFACE offers a sample pack of up to 3 items for you to try out! When I ordered my sample pack, I included the Stank Stop Deodorant, Myrrhaculous Face Cream and Moisturizing and Calming Body Butta. I immediately loved EVERYTHING! After going through these samples I decided to purchase the FATFACE Travel Kit which includes the a travel bag, stank stop, body butta, myrrhaculous face cream and the cleansing oil. I had already been using coconut oil to wash my face so I was excited to try their cleanser!
- Stank Stop: I’m not going to lie, using this for the first time was a little weird. I got the 1 oz size and you basically just swipe some on your finger and apply it to your underarm. No stick, no applicator, it was strange at first! However over time I just got used to it and it stopped feeling weird. On the website, they specify that this stuff will NOT stop you from sweating. Because well, you’re SUPPOSED to sweat! However I felt it did a great job of absorbing sweat and keeping me smelling good. Overall I really liked this stuff!
- Moisturizing and Calming Body Butta: First off, this stuff smells AMAZING! It’s scented with lavender and sage and OMG I feel myself relaxing just thinking about it. I loved putting this stuff on right before bed, it was perfect. A little goes a loooong way so the 2 oz has been plenty enough to keep me happy. I use this in the summer when my skin feels dried out from the sun or for sunburns but it’s also been great as the weather starts to get cooler! The moisturizing and invigorating body butta is equally as awesome! I just prefer the way this one smells!
- Myrrhaculous Face Cream:Let me preface this with the fact that I’ve never used face cream before so I don’t have a ton to compare this too. In the past I’d just rub some lotion on my face and call it a day. I wasn’t sure exactly what this would do but I really feel like it has helped. I have really finnicky skin so sometimes it’s overly oily while other times it’s dry as a bone. This stuff has been great at the weather starts to get colder. I use it at night after cleansing my face and I really feel like it makes my skin glow!
- Cleansing Oil: FATFACE offers 3 different types of cleansing oils. One for normal/combination skin, one for dry skin and one for oily skin. I chose the normal/combination skin and it has been working great. As I mentioned before, I had already been cleaning with coconut oil so switching to this wasn’t a big deal. It smells great and leaves my skin feeling refreshed. However, if you are new to oil cleansing, you might have to be more patient. Sometimes the skin can get bad before it gets better. As with trying anything new, give it time and see if it is truly something that can work for you!
I wish I could tell you more about all of FATFACE’s amazing products but unfortunately these are the only ones I have tried! I have not been disappointed and look forward to trying some of their other products such as the fat stick and the myrrhaculous face oil.
