I am so excited to share with you, October's Beauty Heroes Discovery! October's Box featured two products from Linne Botanicals including a Body Wash, and Face Wash that can be dually used as a face mask. First off, the packaging took my designer eye to greater heights. I love the simplicity of the bottles and the type font. As you'll be able to see in the photos, the products each have such a unique color to them and I am so happy that the packaging showcases them so well.

Review:

My first experience with these products were interesting. I went in expecting the body wash to be like 'normal' body washes where they squirt out of the bottle easily and lather quickly. The Activate Body Wash is not one of those products and I am certainly OKAY with that for so many reasons. First of all, if you look at the ingredients listed previously, you will notice that this is such a PURE product, free of fillers and preservatives that would make it 'easy to squirt' and make it 'quickly lather' but do we really need those fillers and preservatives? Secondly, I love taking my time in the bath or shower. These products are meant for the experience and the experience you get is wonderful. For example, the 'Purify Face Wash' can be used as a face mask, so whether you want a quick morning or evening cleanse, you can quickly massage the product in and rinse off, or if you want a spa-like experience and have a little more time, you can massage the product and leave it there as you shave your legs, read a book or meditate.

Both of these products were used by me and my husband this entire month and I love the results we have both experienced. My husband isn't one to mention the effects of products that I share with him but this time he did. He gets some tiny breakouts or bumps on his forehead from time to time and has visible pores in his cheek/T-zone area. Using the Purify Face Wash has significantly decreased the size of the pores and has calmed down the breakouts on his forehead. As for myself, my pores have also become less visible and my skin feels more firm and even toned. My experience with the body wash has been so pleasant as well. Dry skin is becoming less and less, and getting amazing exfoliation. Linne has made me and my husband both extreme fans and supporters of these particular products and I'm curious to try other products in their line. I am so happy these products exceeded my expectations.
