The company known as Nurture my Body had already received positive reviews here at TIA, so I was more than happy to have the opportunity to try their products myself.  If the idea of organic skin care appeals to you but you don’t know where to start, they offer sample sets for various skin types that could be an excellent way to begin.  (You can also make up your own set, and these are just the right size for travel, too.)

Through their generosity I received their Skin Care Sample Set for Oily Skin containing a 1 oz. Cleansing Milk, a 1 oz. Floral Toner and 0.5 oz. each of their Acne Serum and Gentle Face Cream.

This was my first time using a cleansing milk, so I was surprised to find that it didn’t foam when applied to a wet face. Although a bit skeptical at first, I quickly found that it did a good job of cleaning my face while not stripping the skin, which actually helped to somewhat slow down the production of oil. Packaged in a handy little pump, this pure white, creamy cleanser is chock full of essential oils and extracts, and has a pleasant, lightly herbal fragrance that is gender friendly. (This is also available fragrance-free.)

Their Floral Toner contains certified organic rose geranium to soothe and balance the skin’s ph.This is a convenient spray mist with a fresh, herbal smell that really refreshes after cleansing and I also found it soothing after shaving, too. (They recommended it for combination or oily skin and rosacea.)

The acne serum’s acne fighting botanicals include calendula, grapefruit extract and tea tree oil. Now, I must admit that tea tree isn’t one of my favorite fragrances, but it does work wonders on blemishes. I found that applied in the evening it worked well to quickly banish breakouts. Also, the fragrance didn’t seem to linger very long, or maybe I just got used to it after a few uses. Either way, it merits using, as it really does work.

Non-greasy and lightweight, the Gentle Face Cream has a light, somewhat citrus fragrance. It absorbed quickly and did a good job of hydrating the skin. I only applied it at night and found that in the morning my skin was still well moisturized. (This is also available fragrance-free.)

Each of these products performed well for me and fit easily into my daily routine with my other favorites.  Although these were sample sizes, I found they go a long way. I like the quality and purposeful packaging of these products and look forward to trying others from this company in the future.
