Refresh-2

It’s small batch when it comes to Lone Star Botanicals. They ethically source the best herbs and spices from Organic farms all over the world. I have gotten into using their face scrubs and face masks this winter, and had great results. The Refresh Hydrating Green Tea Face Scrub exfoliates, hydrates, and brightens your skin. Soothe Moisturizing Shea Butter Pumice face Scrub moisturizes and smooths skin. I rarely like scrubs, because I find them to be too harsh. These allowed for a gentle, yet effective cleaning.

These natural based products are developed by stylists and infused with botanicals, precious oils, and restorative proteins.

The Rich Silk Oil Serum absorbs quickly, and has heat and uv protectors. It uses Organic jojoba oil, sweet almond oil and olive oil lock-in moisture.
