Pure and true do equal a more beautiful you and that’s exactly that Pure & True Organic Beauty is all about. This is by far my favourite skin product I’ve come across in a very long time.

Who they Are:-

Pure & True was founded by Michelle Garcia and is a company out of Hawaii. According to their website, their products are 95% natural because organic products have more anti-oxidants, fewer (if none at all) toxins and are very rich in natural nutrients. The goal of Pure & True Organic products is that their items are just that: pure and true.

What I enjoyed about using these products over the past two months was that whatever they promised they could and would do, they did.

I tried the PASSION Passion Fruit and Hibiscus Masque and Microdermabrasion Scrub and the REFUGE Rooibos, Rose and Pomegrante Hydrating Masque.

If you’re a man or a woman out there, who is stressed, has a lot on his or her mind, and basically, your face needs some “me” time, these products are a start.

PASSION Passion Fruit and Hibiscus Masque and Microdermabrasion Scrub:-

I don’t know about you, but before I get my montly red, lady friend, or when I’m really stressed out I tend to break out. I hate it. I’m not even a teenager anymore, but it still happens. So when I found out that PASSION was for all skin types (except sensitive skin), especially those prone to blemishes I knew I needed to try it out.

It’s texture is that of fine sand and grains, twined together in an almost jelly like spread. It’s thick, luscious and it reminds me of pudding…with grains.

This is one of Pure & True’s best selling items and believe me I could see why. I’ve had it in my possession for about two months trying it out. I took it with me to New York earlier this summer, and I took it with me to Trinidad back at the beginning of October. I wanted to test this out in different climates.

My conclusion is that, this is simply a fabulous scrub. I love it. Whether to take off your makeup, cleanse your skin after a blisteringly hot Caribbean day, to wakeup your face in the morning or just making it part of you evening regime — the Passion Fruit and Hibiscus Masque and Microdermabrasion Scrub is amazing.

According to Pure & True, this product blends passion fruit, papaya and hibiscus extract. It also has 5% AHA for a mild for effective way to deeply clean your skin. They suggest that you put it on your face and leave it for about one to two minutes, before exfoliating.

I tried this numerous times, I traveled with it and seriously I couldn’t be happier. I recommend this for men and women.

REFUGE Rooibos, Rose and Pomegrante Hydrating Masque:-

After a late night at work, or after you pull an all nighter for school, REFUGE is the best. I love mine.

This is for all skin types. Pure & True recommends it for stressed, dehydrated, irritated and sensitive skin. This is the epitome of a calming and hydrating masque in my opinion. After putting it on for 15 minutes, my skin felt fresh, clean and soothed. One of the best things about this product is that because it’s not a masque to rid your face of blemishes, or a peel, this is a masque you can wear OVERNIGHT!

Basically, because it’s very concentrated and has a thick creamy texture, you are advised to wear a very thin layer if you are wearing it to go to sleep.

The REFGUE Rooibos, Rose and Pomegrante Hydrating Masque contains essences of rose to rejuvenate your skin. It also contains antioxidants from organic rooibos and pomegranate protect against aging. This masque saturates your skin, making it feel fresh, alive and oh so soft.

I noticed that if I slept with this overnight, the next morning when I applied my makeup, my blushes seemed to glow more and my face just seemed brighter. And throughout the day, even if I was sweating, my face didn’t feel tired or clogged. It felt lighter than usual. I equate that to the revitalization that the overnight treatment of this masque provided 🙂 …even if it was a late-working night 🙁
