A Complete Detox With Art Of Organics

In March, after my HG diagnosis, I embarked on a digital detox and took a break from my blogging and emails, weaning myself off my Macbook where I used to spend countless hours each day doing everything and nothing. You know what? It was surprisingly liberating, and I found myself with a lot of free time to let my mind and body rest.
It was almost as if Art of Organics had read my mind, because I returned from my vacation to find their aptly-themed April DETOX Box at my doorstep. It contained 3 full-sized products (with a fun bonus) targetted to purify, buff, clear and sooth my way to a glowing face and body, which means I was getting a complete detox experience from the inside out. 

What I love most about Birchrose & Co. is that it offers you a luxury spa experience in your own space at an affordable price point, and this aromatic and antioxidant blend of cacao, clay, honey and peppermint is the perfect way to wind down after a long day.  
The mineral-rich base of Fuller's Earth Clay offers cleansing, firming, oil-absorbing and antiseptic properties, and cacao helps repair and rejuvenate the skin while blocking harmful radicals and fighting premature aging. Honey and peppermint are both anti-bacterial and combats acne while stimulating collagen product in your face. Combine them together and you have a delectable face mask that is good enough to eat!
I make sure to stir the jar and apply the mask with a brush and leave it on for 15-20 minutes before washing it off with warm water, and it leaves my face feeling really smooth and hydrated. Word of caution- if you're messy like I am, watch out for product fall-out over the sink and floor. 
Ingredients: Cacao Powder*, Fuller Earth Clay, Manuka Honey, Raw Honey, Coconut Milk Powder*, White Willow Bark Powder, Rosehips Powder*, Argan Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Peppermint Oil* and Spearmint Oil*
Hailed by InStyle as "the cure to your beauty sins", the Debauchery Detox Body Scrub has the perfect salt to coffee to oil ratio and provides equal parts detox, exfoliation and hydration for your weary self. 
Hawaiian Black Lava Salt and Epsom Salt detox the body by helping to flush toxins and heavy metals from cells and relief stress by replenishing magnesium in the body so it can bind and release the mood-elevating serotonin. The coffee grounds slough off dead skin and increase circulation and improve skin texture, while exotic Amazonian oils like Andiroba and Pracaxi tone and reduce the appearance of stretch marks and target skin sensitivities.
You will appreciate the fact that this scrub smells like mint mocha and barely leaves any residue in your tub, so you don't have to spend as long cleaning up as you do in the bath!
Ingredients: Sodium Chloride (Hiwa Kai Hawaiian Black Lava Salt), Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt), Activated Charcoal, Coffea Liberica (Philippines Barako Coffee Grounds*), Cocos Nucifera (Fractionated Coconut Oil*), Corylus Avellana (Hazelnut Oil), Camellia Oleifera (Camellia Oil*), Prunus Dulcis (Almond Oil*), Carapa Guianensis (Andiroba Oil**), Pentaclethra Macroloba (Pracaxi Oil**), Tocopherol (Non-GMO Vitamin E), Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender Oil*), Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla Oil) and Citrus Limonium (Lemon Oil*)

The Province Apothecary Spot Treatment was developed as a potent formula to treat all kinds of blemishes, featuring turmeric and myrrh essential oils which are known for their anti-inflammatory and anti-septic qualities respectively.

Unfortunately I have to avoid this during pregnancy because of the use of oils, but I did test it on Andrew's face and not only did he like the "manly scent" of the product, it didn't sting and dried up his spots really quickly! The reviews on their website are also nothing short of glowing, with testimonies on how it cleared up cystic acne in less than a week and reduced scarring.  

Ingredients:  Jojoba Seed Oil* [infused With Calendula Flowers*, Plantain Leaves*, Gotu Kola*, Comfrey Leaves*], Neem  Seed Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Vitamin E, Turmeric Root Oil and Myrrh Oil.
