Restore Natural Cleaning Products

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past year, you know that cleaning, washing your hands and sanitizing has taken on a whole new level of importance in today’s world. It seems everywhere we go hand soaps, cleaning products, and sanitizers are at the forefront of every store display and continuously advertised on media outlets.

Like so many, I have upped my hand washing and sanitizing tenfold since the start of covid. And while I feel good about making the effort to protect myself, my skin has certainly paid the price for my due diligence. So when I got this variation of Restore Naturals cleaning products, I was really excited to give a new brand a try! 

As a person with generally sensitive skin, I found the sanitizers and hand soaps to not burn and dry my hands out like so many other products do. And while we’re all washing our hands often multiple times a day, this is especially important to avoid irritation. Restore Natural also carries  Dish Soap, 3X Laundry Concentrate, and EnzAway Spot Remover that I found to be consistently gentle and almost completely free of fragrance! A way better option to harsh chemical ridden products- especially during this time of increased cleaning protocols.

I try my very best to be all natural when it comes to what I ingest and put in my body. I’m always sure to check ingredient lists, ethics and strive to be as green as possible. This includes what I put on my skin and the cleaning products I use. After deep diving into Restore Naturals practices I found them to meet the three main standards of natural products- simple, safe, and green. They carry all plant-based cleaning products with non-toxic ingredients that are better for you and better for the environment. 

Gentler, eco conscious and effective products you can feel good about. Restore Naturals products definitely check all of these boxes! Happy cleaning and stay safe!

FACTORFIVE REGENERATIVE SERUM

A few weeks ago, my husband walked into the room and handed me a product called FACTORFIVE Regenerative Serum and told me to give it a try. I grabbed the bottle and had never heard of the brand before, and the term “stem cells” if I am being honest made me a little hesitant. After a quick google search however, I was intrigued. In a few weeks, I will turn thirty one (thirty wonderful, as I like to call it), and I have started to notice a few wrinkles here and there to put it modestly. I even had a dear friend of mine ask “have you considered botox for some of those lines?”. She’s like a sister so it didn’t offend me, but it sure did make me start to consider the array of options out there to keep our faces looking fresh and youthful- however artificial they may be.

That night, I washed my face as directed and applied some of the liquid gel-like serum to my face. It felt nice and went on really smooth- did not at all feel goopy, thick or sticky. In fact, I felt like my skin was absorbing it! It stinged the tiniest bit, but nothing more than your typical face mask and just enough to make you feel like something is happening. The glow and evenness it gave my complexion was almost immediate, and even with one application I felt my skin was softer. Now I was REALLY intrigued. 

I have to admit, I am an all natural girl and definitely subscribe to the “clean movement” when it comes to what I ingest and put in my body. I’m always sure to check ingredient lists, ethics and try my very best to be as natural as possible. So when it comes to what I put on my skin and the beauty products I use, I feel no differently. All kidding aside, although the thought of botox admittedly has crossed my mind on occasion, the idea of injecting myself with a foreign substance does not ultimately appeal for these very reasons. After deep diving into FACTORFIVE’s practices-  it appears they’ve nailed the balancing act of  these two demands. 

FACTORFIVE is natural, cruelty-free skincare formulated without parabens, mineral oil, sulfate detergents, phthalates, urea, DEA or TEA. It produces anti-aging results by using ethically derived human stem cells to assist in healthy cell regeneration. I have used this product for about three and half weeks now, and although I know I need more time to truly see the full effects of the product, I already see and feel a huge difference in my skin’s appearance, dryness and elasticity. I cannot wait to continue the use of this product and watch as my skin improves over time. Best part? No injections for me!
