Thinking of Going the Organic Skincare Route?
I've been on this bandwagon...before it was really a 'thing'...before it was the trendy option for skincare and now tons of other beauty items! And it hasn't always been glorious... years ago- there weren't that many truly organic or natural beauty brands out on the market and the ones that were had an uphill climb! Why? I think one of the main challenges for many organic and natural skincare and beauty labels for years, it that they not only have to spend more to create products that are void of chemicals and other unwanted ingredients, but they have to convince consumers that they are just as effective...and sometimes they don't get it right on the first go-around and end up with a trial-and-error of some products with consumers for years before they really nail a product's formula. That's partly due to these brands and their trailblazing efforts- they are creating products with ingredients that many brands wouldn't both or touch...not because they're bad for us...but because they cost more...i.e. they aren't as cost-effective.
Additionally, they present new challenges for manufacturing processes, packaging, and environmental concerns- these all cost money and require changes that many current beauty brands simply aren't willing to make. Luckily, brands haven't given up though and over recent years the up-tick in the organic and natural beauty products does have a silver lining: more and more products have shown up online and in stores...with new brands, beauty lines, and approaches that have even caught myself off guard at times ;) One of those brands to sticks to mind is Snow Fox Skin Care!

The Beauty Closet's Recommended Organic Skincare Brand of the Month: Part I
Skin Care Soothing Facial Mousse
Contains tons of great natural ingredients that you will love and your skin will thank you for: citric acid, peppermint oil, & aloe vera leaf! Perfect for all skin types and leaves the skin not only feeling refreshed and cleansed, but soft, smooth, and healthy! Won't leave behind yucky residue and easy to use: simply pump out 1-2 pumps of foam and then gently massage onto the skin. Remove with lukewarm water and/or a washcloth and pat your face dry. Requires no water- making this one great for on-the-go cleansing and travel too! I love the simple yet stylish design and packaging as well. Has a light, fresh, & minty scent that's non-annoying. You will absolutely love this cleanser!
