Facial scrubs have become a normal part of my weekly skin care regimen. I started thinking about the health of my skin in my mid-twenties.  I made sure I washed all of my makeup off at night and I would use moisturizer and sunscreen as often as I felt I needed to.  During my early thirties, I developed better habits in regards to my skin, however, as I approached my forties a healthy skin care regimen became a top priority. I am picky about what I put on my face, because I have sensitive skin, and I don’t want to experience any type of break outs.

5 Facial Scrubs You Should Be Using

Exfoliating is important because as we age, our cell regeneration slows down, which means that if we don’t remove the dead skin cells, we are left with rough, dry, dull looking skin.  You should use an exfoliant once (if you have sensitive skin) or twice a week.  However, you should  NOT exfoliate more than three times per week.

Regular exfoliation will help you to achieve healthier, brighter looking skin.  These are some of the facial scrubs that I use as a part of my healthy skin care regimen, and to keep my skin glowing.  I like them because they are each effective, yet gentle on my sensitive skin.

I have a long relationship with Creme of Nature hair products, as they were one of my favorite hair care product lines back when I was addicted to the “creamy crack.”  When shopping for natural hair products, I would tend to overlook this particular line.  I think I skipped over them because I was used to using their products on my relaxed hair, and didn’t think I could achieve satisfactory results with my natural hair.  After seeing several naturalista’s on my Instagram feed speaking positively about Creme of Nature Argan Oil, I decided I would give them a try.

I spent quite a bit of time on the aisle looking over their assortment of products.  I finally settled on the Intensive Conditioning Treatment, Strength and Shine Leave-In Conditioner and Pudding Perfection Curl Enhancing Creme.

What does the product promise to do?  Take your curls on an exotic journey with our amazing curl-enhancing formulas designed for curls, coils, kinks, and waves. No frizz. No shrinkage. No dryness.




After shampooing with Creme of Nature® Shampoo, apply a generous amount of  Intensive Conditioning Treatment to hair and comb through for even distribution. Place a plastic cap over the hair and sit under a warm hooded dryer for 10–15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and follow with any Creme of Nature Argan Oil styling product.

This Strength and Shine Leave-In Conditioner is a two-phase formula. To activate ingredients, shake conditioner well before using. Spray throughout damp or dry hair as needed. Do not rinse. Style as usual.

Scoop a liberal amount of Pudding Perfection Curl Enhancing Creme into your hand and smooth downward on small sections of damp hair using fingertips. Then twist, shingle, coil or wash and go. Do not rinse. Air dry or diffuse. For curl elongation, use a blow dryer with a nozzle attachment on fully dried hair and direct heat from roots to mid-shaft.

Creme of Nature Argan Oil Review

This line has a strong flowery type smell to it.  The smell however, is not unbearable.


The Intensive Conditioning Treatment has a yogurt like consistency to it.  It is not runny at all.  The Pudding Perfection Creme has a thick, pudding like consistency.  


This product line provides a great slip when applied to the hair.  


I used these products as a part of my wash and go process. I started with freshly shampooed hair. I then conditioned my hair with the Creme of Nature Intensive Conditioning Treatment. I allowed it to sit on my hair for about 10 minutes. Afterwards, I  rinsed my hair thoroughly.

I then completely saturated my hair with the Creme of Nature Strength and Shine Leave-In Conditioner.

Lastly I applied the Creme of Nature Pudding Perfection Curl Enhancing Creme to my hair in small sections at a time.  Afterwards, I let my hair completely air dry.


Intensive Conditioning Treatment  This conditioner made my hair feel very soft and did a good job of detangling my hair.

Strength and Shine Leave In Conditioner  I didn’t feel that my hair was quite as moisturized using this spray conditioner as it is when I use a cream conditioner.

Pudding Perfection Curl Enhancing Creme did a good job of defining my curls. This creme leaves a soft hold, which I love and I did not experience any flaking.


I was pretty impressed with this line and will be using it for future wash and go’s. My hair feels very soft, and has a nice sheen to it.  The Pudding Perfection gives my hair a nice hold without the crunchiness or flakiness that I tend to experience when using gels. I am definitely adding this to my hair care arsenal. The only thing I will be changing is the leave in conditioner. I prefer a cream, as I believe a cream does a better job of moisturizing my hair, as opposed to a spray.
