Revamp your skin this summer with Lemongrass Spa!

Before leaving for my work trip this past weekend in LA, I received two awesome, new products from Lemongrass Spa, provided by the amazing, April Aldstadt. Luckily, I had a little space left in my suitcase to bring these along with me. As always, I wanted to make sure to test out these two products thoroughly, before sharing my honest opinions with you all.

First off, here’s some interesting info about Lemongrass Spa products!

As many of you already know, I’ve been on the hunt for a new eye cream, so I was lucky to receive this awesome Hydrating Eye Crème with Cucumber Extract.

Hydrating Eye Crème with Cucumber Extract

In my night time skin care routine, I like to apply my eye cream after applying any serums. If you don’t use serums, feel free to apply your eye cream after toning, but before moisturizing with any heavy lotions.

Your eye area is extremely delicate and sensitive, so you want to make sure to use the right products for your particular skin type and/or skin needs. Luckily for all my readers, the Hydrating Eye Crème with Cucumber Extract is great for all skin types!

The cucumber extract reduces inflammation and irritation, so say goodbye to itchy or puffy under eyes. It also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improving the elasticity of your skin. I’m only 27, but to me, it’s never too early to prevent premature signs of aging!

Lastly, I forgot eye makeup remover on my trip to LA. This Hydrating Eye Crème actually doubles as a makeup remover. After a long, tiring workday, I was so happy I didn’t have to go out and buy makeup remover. It was so convenient that I had this on hand, since I always look forward to taking my face off at the end of the day. Don’t you?!

Next, I want to share with you all the Pomegranate Facial Polish! As you may already know, exfoliating is my favorite part of my skin care routine, so needless to say, I was extremely eager to test this out!

Pomegranate Facial Polish

First off, I want to say that this stuff smells AMAZING! If you’re not fond of fruity scents, or don’t like scented skin care products in general, don’t worry! This is available scented and unscented.

With dry skin, I exfoliate twice a week. Once a week, I deeply exfoliate with my Clarisonic Mia, and again as needed with a normal face scrub, like this one. I don’t like packing my Clarisonic for quick weekend trips, so I was glad to have this with me when my face craved a good scrub.

As the craziness died down by Sunday evening, I used this while in the shower, and I gave myself a mini facial. I took about a quarter-sized amount in my fingers then applied it to my face, gently exfoliating in small circular motions for about 1-2 minutes. I was happy to discover the tiny, natural jojoba beads that slowly removed the dead skin cells from the long weekend from my face. I emerged from the shower feeling refreshed and woke up to a gorgeous, glowing complexion!

If any of you are looking for new products to change up your current skin care routine, I’d definitely suggest picking these up at Lemongrass Spa! If you don’t have dry skin like I do, feel free to browse around for other products that will work better for your particular skin type.
