First Impression: Strawberries and Cream Face Food Cleanser from The All Natural Face

             Today I have a first impression post for you! My other most recent first impression is a video on the Jane Iredale Magic Mitt to remove makeup. 
Today's first impression is on Strawberries and Cream Face Food Cleanser by The All Natural Face. Crystal, the owner of the ANF, gave me a small 0.5 oz jar to try when I was at the store 2 weeks ago. I'd seen the face food cleanser on the site but didn't think it was something I really needed to try. Basically, the "cleanser" is in a powder form of just dried strawberries and coconut milk and smells absolutely DIVINE. I wanted to eat it (and could have!)

The site says: "Strawberries are useful for oily skin but are suitable for all skin types. Strawberries contain salicylic acid, which rids the skin of dead cells, allowing it to absorb moisture more efficiently. Strawberries also have a mild bleaching effect on the skin and will help heal blemishes".

I mixed some of the powder in a cup with some warm water, and unfortunately I used a little too much. The mixture is pretty thin but covers a large area of the face, and I ended up using half of my 1/2 oz jar. I decided to apply the mixture "mask style" and leave it on for a little bit. I normally wash my face with pure raw honey morning and night, but the night I did the mask (about 2 days ago), I just used my magic mitt to remove makeup and then applied the mask.
I left it on for about 7-10 minutes until I started to feel the burning of the natural salicylic acid. The mixture was easy to rinse off (had to make sure I got the strawberry seeds) and the first thing I noticed was that my face felt SO soft and incredibly moisturized. I have been having very dry skin lately, but the mixture left my skin feeling more moisturized than the honey does, admittedly.

The main spark for this blog post so quickly was the results the next morning - my skin looked fabulous. Granted, I still am breaking out a little but (although much less since using the honey), but my skin wasn't red at all, the skin tone looked more even, and I swear some of my hyperpigmentation was faded already. I made special attention to see if my face looked the same this morning, but it didn't have the same "glow" as it did the morning after I applied the mask.

I highly recommend picking a face food cleanser up and testing it! I don't believe the 0.5 sizes are available online, I do think you'll end up wanting to purchase a larger size anyway ;P

*For the month of February, the 1 oz jars are on sale for only $5 (regularly $7.50)!!!

A 1 oz jar retails for $7.50, 2 oz for $15, and 4 oz for $25. I hope you guys will consider picking up one of the face foods to try! There are so many choices including Pomegranates and Cream, Mangoes and Cream, Lemons and Cream, and more. 

Let me know if anyone picks one up!!

    2. Are you still liking your jane irdale makeup removing mitt? I am thinking about getting it when I run out of my makeup remover. And thank you so much! I don't have many readers so, it helps me to know that at least one person loves it!

    3. Yes, I love it so much! I love the mild exfoliation and the fact I don't have to use extra ingredients in makeup remover. I definitely recommend it. And you're welcome! I love your pumpkin and poppy posts especially!

  2. If the weather permits tomorrow, I plan on doing swatches of the Datura lip pencil. I think this might be my favorite lip color from her so far. I will definitely be getting that mitt then. I adore your youtube videos. I have watched 3 or 4 today, and you are so easy to watch. I love that I have another person to watch that uses products I will actually purchase! I ordered one of the All Natural Face cream blushes after I watched a video where you showed one. I got juicy peach. I can't wait to get it!

  3. Looks good! I wonder if I can DIY this. I don't have strawberry powder, though, just dried cherry powder which I'm still clueless what to use for. I bought it on impulse 'cause I thought it was pigmented enough for a DIY lip tint. :P

  4. Thank you for the info. It sounds pretty user friendly. I guess I’ll pick one up for fun. thank u
