A couple of weeks ago I was approached through email by a company called Brittanie's Thyme asking me if I would be willing to review some of their products. Brittanie's Thyme products claims to be "luxury organic personal care that is safe and effective yet affordable." I said yes, immediately after going through their website and checking out the range of their products. They were kind enough to send me items based on my skin type.
It is very easy to shop around Brittanie's Thyme since all of their products are color coded based on skin types (Green for Normal Skin, Yellow for Sensitive Skin and Orange for Troubled Skin). They sent me 5 products but to be honest, out of the 5, I only absolutely love 2 of them. Not that there is anything wrong with the other 3 products, it's just that my skin didn't quite like it that much.

I thought it would be better to just do a review on the products I absolutely love since I can't stop using them.
The first product I'm reviewing is the Organic Almond & Oatmeal Facial Scrub. I knew even before trying it that I would love this since I'm a huge fan of oatmeal scrubs/cleanser. I used to use oatmeal every night to cleanse and exfoliate my face. It helped my dry skin during the fall and winter season and I even have a post about it a long time ago (link here).
Here's a product info taken from their website:
Gently scrub away lifeless cells that are dulling your natural complexion with this organic facial scrub. Finely ground natural oatmeal and raw almonds help exfoliate dry skin and smooth rough spots, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth. Excellent for use on rough elbows and knees, yet gentle enough for the sensitive facial skin.
It is very easy to use this product, just scoop 1/2 teaspoonfull onto the palm of your hand, add a few drops of water and make it into a paste. Wet the face and rub it gently in circular motions on your face. I suggest massaging it on the face for a good 2-3 minutes.
This product is recommended for all skin types and to be used once or twice a week. As I mentioned above, I used to use oatmeal as my night time cleanser and it has helped out my dry skin. If you have extremely dry skin it would be best to use this once or twice a week because it might be too much for your skin even if it is a gentle exfoliant.
From my before photo, you can clearly see how tired and dull my skin looked and on the after photo, you can see how clear and bright my skin has become.
I just love how soft, smooth and supple my skin feels after using this scrub. I cannot believe I stopped using oatmeal as my facial scrub when I used to swear by it before. Thanks to Brittanie's Thyme and the Organic Almond & Oatmeal Facial Scrub, I have rediscovered my love for oatmeal both for my tummy and for my face! ^^
This product is all natural and is made only with ground oatmeal and almond meal. This jar contains 4oz of product and retails at $10.
*This product was sent to me for review but as always, my reviews are honest and based on my own opinions and experience.
