Alchemilla Organic Exfoliating Face Wash Cream Review

Alchemilla Exfoliating Face Wash Cream


As I near closer and closer to 30, I care more about my skin and wish I had been a little less enthusiastic about sunbathing as a teen.  I’m already noticing fine lines and sun spots, while I’m still battling the occasional blemish AND dry skin.  I’m also more concerned about the ingredients in my skincare products and prefer to use all-natural and organic products when possible.

Alchemilla recently sent me its Exfoliating Face Wash Cream to review, part of its organic skincare lineup. Alchemilla products are hand made using organic herbs, many of which are grown on their 100% wind-powered farm in Oregon, and their company focuses on eco friendly business practices.  Alchemilla products are free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, synthetic fragrances and artificial dyes.

The exfoliating face wash cream is several products in one – it aims to deep clean, remove dead skin cells, prevent clogged pores, and brighten the complexion. You only need to use this several times a week and you can leave it on as a facial treatment for extra moisturization. The first thing I noticed when reviewing the product is its strong herbal smell (maybe it’s the rosemary) – it’s refreshing but I wish it was toned down a little.

I’ve been using Alchemilla every other day for about a week and it’s definitely unique since it’s trying to do so many things at once. The texture is thick and creamy for a face wash, and the exfoliating beads of natural jojoba are gentle enough for mature skin. I found that it took a while to rinse off, possibly since it contains wax. At first I didn’t think it was making that much of a difference, but then I noticed my skin looked more luminous even without moisturizer. I have combination skin and I personally found it more effective as a moisturizer than an exfoliator.

Alchemilla Organic Skincare

If you’d like to try Alchemilla, I recommend purchasing one of their skin care trial kits based on your skin type ($25 for 7 products). The frugalista in me cringes at paying $26 for such a small amount of skincare product, but on the other hand, it’s supporting a small US organic beauty company that uses pure non-toxic ingredients that are probably safer for you in the long run.

Buy It: Available online at ($26 for 1.4 oz)
