Best Face Wash: Why I Quit Washing My Face Altogether!

This post may contain compensated links. Refer to my disclaimer for more info.

Have you been holding your breath, waiting for my choice of the best Face wash for all of us? Probably not but I have had tons of friends and readers ask me my opinion.  Jump in as I encourage wives with hope and hacks for abundant lives with family travel, women’s wellness, beauty, and wifelife!

Why me?

Best Face Wash

Good question.  I guess because I’ve been fairly high maintenance within the beauty biz for 25 years and then recently wrote somewhat shocking articles called  5 Toxic Reasons to switch to Natural Makeup & Skincare and 7 Baby Steps to Safer Skincare & Makeup.  If you haven’t read them yet, you must stop right now and check them out.   It won’t take long, I’ll wait for you here.

I’ve been steadily experimenting and playing, so for now, we’ll talk skincare items one by one and then we’ll tackle makeup. I know, the hard sacrifices I make are so tough. (wink)

Best Face Wash Verdict

I have been able to find amazing skincare replacements and the one I’ll share with you today is simply Ah-mazing.  I’m serious, my skin has never been clearer, smoother, and predictable. I rarely have a breakout and I don’t notice the wrinkles like before. But here’s the deal.  Are you sure you’re ready for this?

I’m actually not washing my face anymore and I haven’t for a really long time.

My video tutorial below will explain why I haven’t and why I think you should stop too. After spending gobs of money in the past, it really is remarkable to think about how simple my skincare routine is now and I’m as tickled as can be.  I have been dying to share this discovery with you. For argument’s sake, we’ll call this the best face wash available since that’s what people call it…..

Watch why I quit washing my face!
So where do you buy coconut oil?  I would suggest buying Spectrum Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil or 16-oz glass – Gold Label Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.  These are some of the best, affordable choices in coconut oil right now.  Of course, if you can get a bigger high quality bulk coconut oil, you’ll save even more money.  That what I do.  When I get a new jar, I put half in my bathroom container and use the other half in the kitchen to get in those healthy fats.

What do you think?  After mastering this technique, you can also learn about my natural eye cream too.

Do you plan to join me on the road less traveled to clear, healthy skin? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

    Really neat! I stay away from cleaning chemicals as well.

    Yay! So glad you mentioned this! I love coconut oil and use it for almost everything from diaper rash on our babies to removing my make-up to oil pulling and of course cooking! It is a remarkable oil that is not only versatile but also good for you!

    I use Coconut Oil to clean my face too. I still have to use a wash though after I have used it. I use it to talk my tented moisturizer and mascara off.
