Disclaimer: My friend Erin of Ely Organics provided the Miessence skin care products to me at no cost in order to help me try to solve my skin woes. I am so grateful! All opinions are my own. Please take a minute to visit Ely Organics and learn more about the products and specials she has going on right now.
Along with the Miessence superfoods that I’m taking during my 30 day cleanse for restructuring my insides naturally, I’m also using a new line of certified organic skin care to treat my cystic acne naturally from the outside.
Here are the products I’m using and a little about each one.
Purifying Cleanser – a purifying cleanser with fresh organic lemon peel oil, witch hazel and burdock. I can attest that it does leave the skin feeling soft, clean and fresh, without feeling stripped and dry.
After cleansing I use one of these two treatments, but not both:
Purifying Mineral Mask – specifically formulated for problem skin with natural green clay, organic echinacea and witch hazel to tone and purify the skin. Contains the wonderful properties of organic lavender, lemon myrtle from country Queensland and tea tree from the forests in northern New South Wales.
Garnet Exfoliant – works effectively to clear congestion resulting from a build-up of dead, dry surface skin cells. The best scrub ever, with a fresh citrus blend of organic lemon, bergamot and orange.
Then, I follow with this series:
Balancing Skin Conditioner – gentle version of a toner, conditioning is a vital step in the Miessence skincare regime. Conditioning has a twofold purpose: firstly, to feed the skin with nutrients in the water-soluble botanicals, organic herbs, vitamins and essential oils, and secondly, to provide a hydration base for the moisturizer to lock in.
Purifying Blemish Gel – a potent and powerful blend of healing and calming organic herbs and flowers, including purifying thyme, healing plantain, clarifying echinacea and soothing marshmallow. Contains the potent properties of organic lavender, lemon myrtle from country Queensland and tea tree from the forests in northern New South Wales. (this is supposed to be a spot treatment but I have to use it pretty much all over my face since my face is covered in spots)
Organic Balancing Moisturizer – a creamy moisturizer with significant and lasting effects on skin hydration and smoothness. Formulated with plant phospholipids, organic seed butters and oils, organic herbs and flowers to maintain healthy skin. Contains organic rosehip seed oil, jojoba, calendula, chamomile, olive leaf, marshmallow and lavender.
I love how these products use essential oils to boost their effectiveness. I was already using thyme and tea tree on my skin before I started using these products, and now they are incorporated into the regime.
How does my skin feel? On the surface, it feels much smoother. The mask has really helped resurface and the balancer and moisturizer are very effective.
Unfortunately, cystic acne does continue to come up from underneath the skin. I am confident, however, that it is not the result of toxins on the surface of the skin because Miessence has no toxic ingredients in their products and I am fully confident that I am putting only pure, natural things onto my skin using this system. I can’t think of any other brand about which I can say that. I’d highly recommend ordering Ely Organic’s Miessence Purifying Essentials starter pack of skin care!
