That's Totally Fetch


African Extracts Purifying Review + Giveaway

28 July 2016 | 19 Comments

I can’t stress enough how important skin care is. I get asked often how I get my skin to look so good and all it boils down to is finding the right skin care range and committing to looking after it. Always make sure you are aware of the ingredients in your skin care products, some can do more harm than good. I have tried so many skin care products over the years that I have lost count but this particular brand I have fallen in love with in the last few months. Once again African Extracts spoiled me with some goodies, just in time as I was finishing my Rooibos AdvantAGE range. I was super excited as I absolutely loved their Rooibos AdvantAGE range {which I did a review on… click here}. Their new skin care range is called Purifying. I have been trying out their Spot Control Face Wash, 3-in-1 Wash, Scrub & Mask, Toner and Dual Action Moisturizer. The Rooibos products are enhanced by natural plant extracts of the Boabab and Salicylic Acid, these leave your skin feeling soothed and looking spotless. 

The Spot Control Face Wash has a gel like feel. It washes makeup off so well and leaves my skin feeling so soft. The face wash is perfect for combination skin. It’s active ingredients consist of Baobab fruit extract, Salicylic Acid as well as Green Rooibos. Salicylic Acid helps treat acne and blemishes, it is extracted from the bark of a willow tree.

The 3-in-1 Wash, Scrub & Mask is my favourite product from the range. I am BIG into exfoliating in winter. I used this 3-in-1 wash twice a week. I’d apply it as a mask and afterwards would lightly scrub my skin to give it some good exfoliation. GOODBYE dead skin cells. The aim of the wash is to eliminate excess oil, unclogs pores and evens your skin tone. The active ingredients in the 3-in-1 wash are Jojoba seed oil, She Butter, Soy Bean, Green Rooibos, Salicylic Acid, Baobab fruit extract and Beeswax. All natural ingredients.

I am quite skeptical when it comes to Toners. I have had a bad experience with a Toner, where it actually burned my skin because the ingredients in the product were so strong. Needless to say I have avoided them since. However, I did check the ingredients in the African Extracts Toner and nothing looked suspect so I decided to give it a bash. The Toner was extremely gentle on my skin. It didn’t leave my skin feeling tight and uncomfortable. It actually felt really fresh. The ingredients included in the Toner are Green Rooibos, Salicylic Acid, Baobab fruit extract and Witch Hazel. Witch Hazel has many benefits, it treats acne, refreshes your skin, reduces your pores and locks in moisture.

 Last but not least the Dual Action Moisturiser. A good moisturiser is key to a winning beautiful complexion. The Dual Action Moisturiser contains Baobab fruit extracts, Salicylic Acid, Green Rooibos, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. It’s the cherry on top of a great skin care range.

My skin looks healthy and feels healthy. I actually can’t remember when last I had a break out. If you struggle with acne and blemishes then I would really recommended the African Extracts Purifying range.

“The best foundation you can wear is healthy glowing skin.”
