When I was a kid.
My momma loves all things natural. And because of this, from a young age, I've always been using vaseline as a make-up remover *controversial* (yes, I ONLY ever use vaseline as a makeup remover) and bicarbonate soda as a face scrub - which you were able to purchase in pots in Norway. Since moving to The Netherlands, I've always been able to find vaseline, but bicarbonate soda just isn't sold here, only in little saches.
I quit 'The Pill'; I got acne at the fine age of 21.
Since the age of 16 I've been taking the pill. I don't know about you, but for people around me, that was pretty normal. I do believe a big part of me not having acne too badly was that I was vegetarian, and on the pill - because when I stopped taking it last summer, I definitely noticed an increase in the acne I was getting, even though I am now vegan. Because the pill no longer regulates those hormones, I'm often left with small outbreaks here and there, nothing too dramatic - but I was definitely a little worried, as I'd never experienced anything like it.
So, when I heard Bioré was launching a skin cleansing line focused on bicarbonate soda, and charcoal, I just had to give them a try. Of course, before I discuss anything with you guys, I like to test out products for a while. I've now tried the charcoal face wash, bicarbonate soda and nose strips over the past month and honestly am surprised at home much I am loving them. I've seen my skin visibly clear up, and become a lot less agitated like it used to with other cleansing products. That these products are vegan, is just the icing on the cake for me.
Bioré have just found a loyal fan in me. If you try their products and they work for you, please do let me know via Instagram, or dropping me an email, I'd love to hear from you!
