Ginger Root

Ginger Root: Cultivated by Asian cultures for nearly 5000 years, this warm and spicy aromatic derived from the rhizome of the ginger plant has traditionally been used to stimulate digestion, increase circulation and relieve muscle and joint pain. It is also useful as an antiseptic and to treat colds and prevent motion sickness and jet lag. Applied topically, it acts as a rubefacient, reddening the skin by stimulating blood flow to accelerate healing and relieve muscle soreness, while its relaxant properties can help minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Slowly but surely I loved it.

When I try new products I tend to pick the ones with the most user awards, I figure if that many people love it shouldn’t I? After my Bliss face wash ran out I decided to try Philosophy’s Purity face wash, it had after all won Best of Sephora a few times. The first time I used it, it felt like I was washing my face with lotion and I was not impressed. I like a really squeaky clean feel when I was my face and this felt too creamy to actually be cleaning my face.

In order to really get a feel for it I decided I would keep using it for a week and see if it changed my mind. Each time I washed my face it won me over bit by bit I realized while it was creamy it left my face feeling really clean but not tight or over dry. Now my test week is over and I really do love this face wash. It’s gentle and creamy and leaves my face feeling squeaky clean without feeling like it will crack if I smile.

If you want to try Purity yourself a great way to sample is try the smaller travel size bottle like I did, it’s a much smaller investment up front and you can be sure you like it before buying the full size.
