Greetings from Maine gals! No I’m not in Maine but I do have some awesome products from Aucocisco Naturals (based from Maine) to share with you :)
Let me tell you Twitter is such a wonderful thing! I had the opportunity of meeting Alyce through Twitter & she offered to send some of her fresh, natural hair & skin care products & of course I obliged (inner product junkie).
Alyce sent me various items from her Etsy store, Aucocisco Naturals, & I will share with you the ones that I had the best results using.
Ayurvedic Herbal Serum: Nourishing oil infused with four herbs from the Ayurveda tradition. Shikakai, bhringraj, neem, and aloe condition the scalp, strands, and ends of all hair types. Strengthens and thickens hair. Use this oil as a serum on dry ends, or as part of a scalp / whole head conditioning treatment. Also aids in softening and smoothing dry or damaged skin. Made with all natural Ayurvedic herbs, apricot oil, lavender essential oil, and coconut oil.
How to Use:
Hair serum - Apply to ends of damp or dry hair after washing/bathing/co-washing. Will help control frizz and define curls while adding nutrients and shine to the hair.
Oil scalp and hair massage – Using the pads of your fingers, apply the oil little by little to different parts of your scalp, parting your hair as needed. Also work some oil along the length of your hair. Then, using the pads of your fingers, work the oil into your scalp, using circular motions. Slow, deliberate movements are relaxing while steady but vigorous movement helps enhance energy and circulation. Cover your entire scalp, all the way down the sides to your ears and at the back to your neck. Leave the oil on for at least 30-60 minutes, longer if you can. Wrap with a warm towel or shower cap. Rinse with a natural shampoo, conditioner, or apple cider vinegar.
Skin moisturizer – Herbal infused oils are also beneficial to dry, flaky, or damaged skin. Apply a few drops to rough spots and rub gently with fingertips.
Honey & Pink Kaolin Clay Mask: Three simple yet special natural powders — honey, pink kaolin clay, and chickpea flour — softly blended into a mask that will leave your skin toned and silky smooth from the first application and on. Honey powder is a natural antiseptic that draws out impurities from the skin, leaving your face cleansed and refreshed. Pink Kaolin clay is an extremely gentle, non-drying clay that stimulates circulation and is excellent on sensitive or dry skin. Chickpea flour has been used in traditional Indian body care for centuries as a gentle exfoliant and soap-free cleanser.
How to Use: Use a level tablespoon of the mix and blend with liquid of your choice (water, green tea, coconut milk, floral water…) in a small dish until a smooth paste is formed. Apply gently with your fingertips over cleansed face and neck, let dry for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with cool water.
How I Used The Products: I used the Ayurvedic Herbal Serum on my scalp and to seal the ends of my hair. I didn’t take any pictures of this as I thought that would be silly. But I can attest that this is really good stuff; you will notice a different when you start using this a regular addition to your hair regimen.
Now to my FAVORITE product…the clay mask! This mask really left my skin feeling extremely soft & cleansed. Check out how it looks when you mix and apply:
Here is what the mask looks like on & dried:
Yes, I’m rocking that satin bonnet!! LOL!
I’m telling you when I rinsed my face I did not have that tight feeling what so ever and my skin really felt refreshed. This has now become a staple item to my skin regimen. I only use it once a week but you can surely incorporate it more if you like :) I also used it on areas on my body too & garnered the same results. Kudos to you Aucocisco Naturals!
I really enjoyed reviewing these products & I hope you did too! If you would like to learn more about Aucocisco Naturals check them out here. Please stay tuned because Alyce will be back real soon for a giveaway!
