Joycey Couture shares Part 2 of her Garden Girl Skincare review. If you missed Part 1, be sure to read up on her amazing experience!

After trying just a few of treasures from the Garden Girl skin care line, I simply couldn’t resist continuing with three others that caught my interest. I wanted to uncover their true long-term effects on my skin.

Starting Over Microdermabrasion facial scrub by Garden Girl Skincare

I was excited to combine Starting Over, a non-drying microdermabrasion face scrub (with Shea butter, avocado oil and jojoba), and No Worries, an anti-wrinkle cream (packed full of such lovely ingredients as aloe, jojoba, DMAE, and hyaluronic acid). These products are at each end of the beauty routine spectrum- one to cleanse and exfoliate, and the other to nourish and calm. I loved how clean my face felt after exfoliating with Starting Over and then combining that with a light, refreshing cream like No Worries- I was happy morning and night! Although I must mention, I followed the rules and. as recommended, only used the scrub once a week. Scrubs can cause an adverse reaction when over used.

After a few weeks, I added another product to my regime- Break Free. Break Free is an all-natural fruit acid gel (active skin care ingredients include lactic, glycolic, and pyruvic acids). I didn’t want my skin to go into toxic shock, so I gently introduced my pores to the new comer… and found a great new pal for my already happy couple!

And Break Free did have quite a bit to live up to. According to the Garden Girl website:

“Break Free is packed with three alpha hydroxy acids: glycolic, pyruvic and lactic – to combat oil, exfoliate dead skin, clean pores, and even remove the outer layers of damaged or thickened skin.”

Come on, really?!

But, it worked and lived up to it’s fancy portrayal.

So, over the past few months I fell for Garden Girl all over again. I mean, who wouldn’t get love bumps and that silly tingly feeling just knowing what great products Garden Girl has and they’re free of parabens, petroleum products (ahem, BB!), sulfates, and are never tested on the ‘lil critters. And be sure to check out the eco-friendly refill option! Thanks, Kristin Miller!

Garden Girl Skincare products are available online at Starting over is $38 for a 2 ounce jar; Break Free is $50 for a 4 ounce bottle; and No Worries is $35 for a 2 ounce jar.
