Who else LOVES double duty products?
My lips were feeling a little dry (thanks winter cold, blah!). So I used the Satin Mint Facial Scrub as a lip exfoliant…which is an amazing all round exfoliating product that makes your skin look and feel radiant!
Why do I love this product:
1) It contains Sodium Hyaluronate
Decoded: Naturally found in the body, hyaluronic acid secures moisture and creates fullness (you know like that super kissable baby skin). Hyaluronic acid gives skin volume by holding onto water and as levels decline with age, skin loses its youthful fullness. Sodium hyaluronate is the salt of hyaluronic acid, but has a much lower molecular size which is able to penetrate the skin and makes is a phenomenal ingredient to add to skin care products. It’s also non-toxic, non-irritating and SAFE to use as an ingredient (can I get a hallelujah!)

2) It contains jojoba beads as the exfoliating agent (no nano-particles or nasty microbeads).
Decoded: Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells. It’s key to healthy, soft and glowing skin. Jojoba oil is a liquid wax derived from the jojoba shrub – they gently clean and exfoliate, and do not damage the skin or leave it open for bacteria to invade. Unlike microbeads which are plastic and rapidly building up in our water system (and subsequently making their way into marine life and up the food chain BACK to us) jojoba beads are biodegradable and safe to put back into our water system and safe for our bodies!
3) It contains MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) a naturally derived organic sulfur compound.
Decoded: Biologically active sulfur is one of the most critical nutrients for our bodies to remain youthful and energetic. As we age, along with a diet deficient in essential nutrients, our bodies become stiff, our cells become rigid, and our overall energy begins to rapidly decelerate. Our skin is a reflection of what is going on inside our bodies. MSM is a requirement for the body to produce collagen. You know, that lovely ingredient that allows our skin to have elasticity and bounce back to the places we want it to sit, are you with me ladies?? Just do a quick search on the “benefits of MSM” and you’ll be BLOWN away!
Side note…it’s also found in a number of other amazing products from Young Living, including it’s most concentrated form combined with the Ningxia Wolfberry (HELLLLLOOOOOO Antioxidants) in the amazing Sulfurzyme product.
So, all said…this product ROCKS my world. And the best part…as a wholesale member you can score the Satin Mint Facial (and well, in this case, lips) Scrub for just $20 and change. #winning
