Healthy skin starts here!
When you’re looking to fill the empties in your skincare routine, it’s tough to decide which new cleanser or toner to get without trying out all the tester bottles at the store. Of course you can either rely on reviews (including all of mine in the clean beauty category of CassieSays!) or you can search for trial sizes of the product, which aren’t always available.
Luckily though, Follain is killing it on the clean beauty scene and has a clean essentials kit that include trial sizes of their best sellers -> the OSEA Ocean Cleanser, Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner, Ursa Major Golden Hour Recovery Cream and the Follain Refillable Everything Soap all bundled into a canvas pouch beaming with the sassy, yet accurate phrase…
I like my products like I like my people. nontoxic.
OSEA Ocean Cleanser
I received my clean essentials kit just in time – I just ran out of my current Beautycounter cleanser and I’m on the last drop of my Primally Pure everything spray that I use as a toner. So I was super stoked to try the OSEA Ocean Cleanser that is suitable for yes, all skin types.
As told by Follain, “This mineral-rich Organic Seaweed gel cleanser effectively removes excess oil and surface impurities from skin while maintaining a hydrated, healthy looking complexion.“
10/10 over here – I liked that the consistency felt strong enough to take off the day’s dirt, but wasn’t super heavy on my skin that I felt like my pores were in danger of getting clogged – eeek!
Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner
This toner is fantastic. Most toners are harsh on the skin & you feel them seeping in right away… in a nerve wracking – is my skin burning – type of way. This toner by Indie Lee is effective, yet gentle & I’m totally on board with it!
As per Follain’s website, “The alcohol-free, non-drying formula balances skin’s optimal pH to help clear up that noon-time shine.”
If the amazing quality of Indie Lee‘s products aren’t enough for you, her story is extraordinary. In 2008, Indie was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor and given six months to live. Her doctor questioned the products that she put on her skin, knowing that she lived a healthy life otherwise and that was the pivotal moment when she realized she needed to make a change. After examining her skincare products and their ingredients, plus undergoing surgery, which saved her life, she beat the odds. And in a way, that was the day she also saved many other lives too, by creating her clean skincare line.
Indie Lee is a superhuman.
Ursa Major Golden Hour Recovery Cream
Suitable for all skin types, this thicker cream with a hint of lemongrass aims to hydrate your skin both day and night. According to Follain, “It soothes irritation, enhances elasticity and protects against environmental stressors.“
I’ve come to realize that I’m pretty picky with choosing moisturizers. They have to be light and airy, yet effective. I’m glad this is a trial size – I don’t think I’d spend $48 on this full size cream that honestly has a subtle scent that reminded me of pickles… but hey! you can try it out for yourself and get 15% off with my Follain ambassador code, ref15_bqv893. Maybe I just have a weird sense of smell? Tell me what you think…
Follain Everything Soap
Talk about multifunctional, this soap can be used in so many different ways. Whip it out as a hand soap for when you don’t trust the Dial soap out and about, a body wash, a dish cleaner, surface cleanse or even to scrub your pup in the tub!
The Follain soap comes in two scents, lavender & lemongrass, and four sizes – 1oz, 8oz, 16 oz or 38 oz.
For me, I like to carry this with me as a personal hand soap. It’s taken time to swap out all of my household products, so this little wonder makes it convenient to stick to my clean routine, when I’m at work or visiting my bff for a girls night without access to cleaner products.
Cassie Says… Follain refuses to settle for products that are less than the best.
They only carry brands that are safe, clean and effective. Aside from having a store front + an online spot to shop, Follain hosts in-house fun & educational events run by their experts to teach the local community all about clean beauty.
