I'm thrilled about the contents of this month's Lean Clean Green Subscription box. This first box has some great products and the theme for this month is self-care and pampering. Why? Because let's be honest, most of us are so busy taking care of others that we often forget to take care of ourselves. And it's difficult to carve out that time for yourself. Well now I'm sending you a self-care kit.* In a box. Delivered right to your door. So there's no excuse.
This month's products
Valor Facial Lotion
This amazing lotion is so smooth and wonderful (and it smells absolutely fabulous). One of the things I love best about it (aside from how great my face feels when I use it) is that you can actually read all of the ingredients without needing a magnifying glass. And even better, they're all real words. No degree in biochemistry needed to understand what you're putting on your face.
Essential Living Witch Hazel Toner
This wonderful toner is made from 100% American witch hazel. There's no alcohol or preservatives in the bottle, just witch hazel. Of course, I've never understood why anyone would put alcohol into something that's supposed to be good for your face, alcohol just dries out your skin. Witch hazel is useful for:
- Nourishing for dry skin. And if used immediately after a shower can help seal in moisture
- Reducing acne and redness
- Helps to relieve sunburn discomfort
- Supportive against itching and inflammation from eczema
- Soothing against razor burn
- Can help reduce bruising (apply 3 times per day to the affected area)
Turkish Makeup Towels
I love these towels. It honestly never occurred to me to wonder why we always use white towels to remove makeup. But after 2-3 months of daily use, you just throw it out. Even though you've been running it through the wash, it looks like an art project, with lipstick, eye-liner, eye shadow, blush, foundation, whatever you wear. And it just looks gross. Even if you don't wear much make-up, white towels still get stained with skin oils and daily pollution exposure. Now with this wonderful, soft, Turkish cotton towel, you don't have to worry about that.
Turmeric Tea and If You Care Tea Filters
This tea is amazing!! I wish I had smell-o-vision right here on the screen so you could enjoy the fabulous aroma of this incredible 100%-organic-no-added-crap tea. It's delicious hot or cold and I can't make up my mind if I like it better as a morning cuppa or in the evening (even though it's called Dawn).
And these filters? They're unbleached, durable, and really wonderful. The great thing is that you can use these filters for more than just tea. Check out this video on my Facebook page to learn how else you can use them.
Rounding out this month's amazing box is this bag with CHUNKS of Himalayan Salt. Use this to make Sole (pronounced solay) an adrenal support drink. It is very supportive for those with low energy, fatigue, or anyone who needs a good mineral boost. Here's how you make it:
Fill a glass jar about 1/4 of the way with Himalayan salt chunks
Fill the rest of the way with water
Let sit 24 hours so that the water becomes super-saturated
The salt will still be visible at the bottom of the jar
Take 1 teaspoon of the sole, mixed into some room temperature water first thing in the morning (if desired this can be put into a cup of nourishing broth)
Keep refilling your jar with water when it runs low
As the salt run out add another chunk
This bag should provide around 9 months of sole if used daily.
