With sensitive skin, I cannot allow myself to use just any skincare product. My skin is so sensitive that it can react to a preservative or synthetic fragrance. However, I still need them to be effective enough to treat and keep blemishes at bay. With the growing popularity of plant-based products across all industries, there are now many skincare options that are organically made with ingredients that are kind to your skin.
Plant Apothecary offers plant-based products that are USDA certified organic. Ranging from beauty, grooming and bath products, you’ll find a product for you regardless of your skin type. Free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates and silicones, they’re made to cleanse, moisturize, purify, exfoliate and help you to de-stress. It’s difficult to find products that are both pure and safe for the environment, not to mention at a reasonable price. They’re also unisex so you can share them with your SO!
I was gifted two products that are targeted towards oily and acne-prone skin to try out and to provide my two cents on.
The Superfacial Organic Superlight Oil Moisturizer for oily and acne-prone skin, although is an oil, will provide deep hydration to the skin without leaving it shiny. Its lightweight and quick absorbing so that you can get on with your day. It’s formulated with white tea seed oil, which has antibacterial and soothing properties, astringent hazelnut oil, and pomegranate oil that’s packed with antioxidants that will hydrate the skin and control oil production. Just a few drops rubbed between the palms of your hands and gently pressed onto the skin is all that you need.
My skin felt soft and hydrated with a dewy finish that gives it a healthy glow. I haven’t broken out since using this product, and my face doesn’t feel irritated.

Not A Spot Acne Treatment Mask is a powder that transforms into a paste with a little bit of water to gently treat blemishes. Mix half a teaspoon of the powder with a bit of water and apply it all over the face or just on affected areas, then rinse off when dry. It contains organic essential oil of basil that’s known for its powerful antibacterial properties as well as highly absorbent activated charcoal that draws out impurities. My skin feels so soft, fresh and smooth, and I noticed little bumps that were on my face that were neither blackheads, whiteheads or acne, disappeared. This is a great product that will treat and prevent existing or future blemishes. Be sure to restore hydration to the skin with a face moisturizer!
