Realness Review in the Raw
With the start of 2019 it was announced that I would be more focused on clean, real products. I wanted to make sure that I reviewed products in every price point to make sure that this change encompassed every budget. I went to BeautyCon in New York City earlier this year and finally came out from under whatever rock I had been living in and discovered Raw Sugar Living. The gang from this brand was all there and I got to visit with them and really learn about the products, which I am embarrassed to say, I had not known about until then.
I have evolved my routines to include this brand, especially all things that come in the flavor #lemon...obsessed. Before I dive into all that I have tried...ok become addicted to, let me say their #ColdPressedTechnology is what makes up how their products are so amazing! It is through this process that allows their products to be pure, unique and bottomline healthy!
First up, Simply Body Wash in Lemon Sugar. Nothing wakes me up more (before coffee) than when I get to squeeze this on my natural sponge! It literally does make me sigh and smile! This is a plant-based sugar cane, coconut, lemon & ginger extracts that simply blend into a luscious lather that leaves your skin revived, hydrated, and fresh!
Next up, get your buff on with their Sugar Scrub in Lemon Sugar (do you see the pattern here ;) Totally buff away and gently exfoliate your skin with this citrus scrub that is a total blend of happiness!!! It continues to work even after you have rinsed it off as it leaves a protection moisture barrier that leaves skin soft and supple. You are literally walking on sunshine!
Another must have for me now is the Foam Bath in, you can probably guess, Lemon Sugar! I am a total let me soak in a hot bath kinda gal and with this I am totally soaking in my fave scent from this brand! It is a silky foam that is bubbly that leaves you feeling relaxed!
For the shampoo & conditioner, I tried the Moisture Smoothie Shampoo which is a Coconut, Agave, and Sweet Almond Milk Blend. I also tried out the Truly Unruly which is an Avocado, Apple Cider Vinegar and Rosemary Oil blend. I am extremely picky about what I use on my hair. I was impressed with both of these. They left my hair feeling clean, my frizz in check, my curls happy and hydrated. It literally had me shocked!
Last, my must haves in the lip sugar scrub and lip balm in Lemon Sugar - I don't start or end a day without this. I live in a dry climate and these have kept my lips hydrated and exfoliated. Absolutely love the clean, moisturized feeling!
With all of this greatness you would think it couldn't get any better. Well, it does. This company is amazing and with every purchase they donate a bar of soap to a family in need. The brand mission of "aw Sugar is a brand built on nourishing our bodies with nature’s pure goodness and building a platform to support true, unfiltered beauty while uplifting one another," speaks volumes for the people that stand behind this company. It's definitely a brand worth checking out and ultimately falling in love with!
