PBSW Skin Care Trio for Combination Skin - Clean Slate Scrub, Poesy Complexion Mist, The Nihilist Lotion
PBSW Skin Care Trio for Combination Skin
Three of your favorite Paintbox Soapworks' skin care products in one place! Be good to your face - you only get one :)
Clean Slate Emulsifying Facial Scrub gently cleans & exfoliates without drying you out...
Poesy Complexion Mist soothes & refreshes without stripping you raw...
The Nihilist Slip provides lightweight moisture without weighing you down!
Too often, skin care takes the slash & burn approach, over cleansing, over stripping, over scrubbing & leaving you raw, red & somehow even dryer & oilier than when you started. Get out of that cycle & start treating your face right with my trio of gentle, affordable skin care products. This listing is for three (3) 2+ ounce samples of my three classic skin care products, blended by hand in small batches with no SLS/SLES, parabens, propylene glycol, -cones, synthetic fragrances or shea butter (for my sensitive customers). I also include a sample tablet of one of my face-appropriate hot process soaps for you to try!
Prone to oily skin & breakouts? Tired of stripping your skin red & raw with harsh cleansers? Clean Slate is stuffed full of ingredients that will make your face happy! My nourishing, coconut-free Sorbetto formula gets all mixed up with activated charcoal & a green, herby blend of essential oils to gently but thoroughly clean even the oiliest of skin. A healthy drizzle of skin-friendly oils ensure that you aren't left feeling like you got scraped with a wire brush. I formulated Clean Slate mainly as a facial scrub, but it's mild enough to use on your whole body. Emulsifying Facial Scrub is a luxuriously soft, gentle sugar scrub, fortified with nourishing rice bran, grape seed, apricot kernel & jojoba oils. Massaged into wet skin, it emulsifies into a light, creamy lotion that gently cleanses, polishes & moisturizes, leaving you feeling deliciously soft & smelling wonderful :) I've adjusted this recipe from my usual Sorbetto formula, so you'll notice a much softer texture & more gentle cleansing. A little goes a long way, & I advocate scrubbing your face no more than 2-3x a week. In between, try my Clean Slate, Nihilist or Second Breakfast Hot Process bars.
I pack Emulsifying Facial Scrub in a recyclable plastic jar, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind: Sucrose (Sugar), Glycerin, Aqua (Water), Sorbitol, Sodium Cocoyl/Lauroyl Isethionate, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Sodium Chloride (Salt), Levulinic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Activated Charcoal, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil, Salvia sclarea (Clary Sage) Oil, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint), Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil
Poesy Complexion & Linen Mist - A pretty poesy for your pretty face! Sweet rose & lavender with herbaceous rose geranium to soothe & hydrate stressed winter skin... I was lucky enough to procure a trio of gorgeous hydrosols, or flower waters, from one of my favorite vendors over the holiday, & I'm sharing them! Hydrosols are the liquids leftover from the distillation of essential oils - they retain the original botanical's scent & properties, but in very mild concentrations, making them ideal for applying directly to the skin. I use my hydrosol blend every morning, misting it over my face before applying my moisturizer. This helps add a little oomf to my moisturizer, & feels so good on winter-parched skin. It's lovely, too, in the summer, as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up! You can also mist it over your sheets & lace-edged handkerchiefs, if you're feeling particularly Edwardian... "Poesy" is a lovely old word for poetry, after all. I selected a range of balancing, soothing hydrosols for this blend, those that benefit all skin types. I did aim for a blend that's particularly helpful for problematic, um, "middle-age" skin. You know, that glorious combination of acne & wrinkles that pops up in your 30s? Yeah, that nonsense :/ *Please note that Poesy contains NO PRESERVATIVES. Keep your bottle away from extreme temperatures, & use it up within 3 months of purchase.* To use, mist gently over face & neck, taking care to close your eyes & mouth. Hydrosols are very mild, but please discontinue use if you experience any irritation. And don't drink Poesy, no matter how tempting.
Poesy is blended in small batches & packaged in recyclable bottles with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind: Rosa damascene (Rose), Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) & Pelargonum graveolens (Rose Geranium) Hydrosols
The Nihilist Face, Hand & Body Lotion is a beautifully plain, unadorned lotion for the purists, the delicate-skinned, & those looking for a lighter moisturizer that's safe to use on the face. Pure white & luxuriously textured, The Nihilist smells of nothing but the oils & extracts used to make it - a little clean, a little earthy, as plain & pure as you can get.
I searched long & hard for a lotion formula that would moisturize without leaving a greasy, messy film. Slip is light-weight enough to apply on the go, but it hydrates & softens for hours. Slip is blended in small batches & packaged in recyclable bottles with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Organic Aloe Leaf Juice, Organic Coconut Oil, Emulsifying Wax, Glycerin, Witch Hazel Water, Stearic Acid, Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Organic Jojoba Seed Oil, Organic Rosemary Leaf Extract, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Organic Neem Seed Oil, Organic White Willow Bark Extract, Organic Alcohol, Lecithin, Xanthan Gum, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate
Please use all products within 3 months of opening, & discontinue use if irritation occurs.
