Nowadays, lots of beauty and skincare products contain ingredients that can harm our beautiful, yet fragile face. So what do we turn to for beauty products then? I will give you 3 seconds to think.
3...2...1... Times Up!
Yes, it's of course natural and organic beauty products. I have found a company that does a good job in doing natural and organic skincare and beauty products. Their products are preservative-free, for sensitive skin, water-free and 70% organic.
Thename is called Ecco Bella. It is found by Sally Malanga, a woman who protests to the use of animals for testing cosmetics, and it expanded to inventing products from the universe of organics and nutraceuticals as well.
I always love to use natural products because it can always keep my skin healthy and beautiful without worrying about harming ingredients. Sometimes my skin can be very sensitive due to weather and climate change so I always choose carefully which products won't harm my skin.
Ecco Bella was kindly enough to send me two skincare products for review. They are also very generous to give away one of the product I am using to one of my reader. Stay tune for the requirements for this giveaway at the end of this post.
The first product is the Ecco Bella Natural Cleansing Milk & Makeup Remover.

Face after using the cleansing milk
Sorry that there is no before picture
After using this for over a month, I feel that my face is smoother and this really cleanse well as a cleanser. I never use this as a makeup remover alone because I don't think it will wipe away my makeup so I just use this as a cleansing milk. The consistency of the product is okay but I think if it's a little thicker it might be better for cleansing. I love the smell as it doesn't have much fragrance in it and I love smell of natural organic products. I would definitely recommend this product to others.

-Might be on the pricier side
