My Fake Sensitive Skin No ratings yet.

Sensitive Skin?

For years I was told I had sensitive skin.

Sensitive to what?

They couldn’t tell me.

I was just “born with it,” docs guessed.

Also on the guessing board was that I must just be “prone” to things like acne, yeast infections, rashes, and dry, itchy skin.

I was also told I had oily skin and an oily scalp.

You can see where I’d be a little confused.

The Push

The more I pressed with the question, “...but why?” I only found hard pushback.

Then, at the start of my oily journey, I’d ask if my docs thought I might find some relief looking for the root problem.

No, there’s no way to tell. Until we can learn more about ___(enter issue here)___, here’s a script for ___(insert medicine, antibiotic, cream, etc)___here.”

However, no matter how many of those prescriptions I filled over the next two decades, I’d never even get close to getting better.

In fact, I was getting worse each year.

Empowered

As I steeped myself further into the Young Living community, I read more and more testimonials about people overcoming their sensitive skin when ditching all their products and switching to Young Living’s toxin-free options.

This interested me for a few reasons:

1.) I’d already ditched all dyes, fragrances, and went organic but still had major issues.

2.) I had this new Essential Rewards thing that could help.

3.) I really had no other choice or help.

A Fresh Start

The decision was made to ditch all of my products by taking advantage of the Essential Rewards program.

So, I made a list of what all I needed.

I actually had the entire house plus husband and kid products on this list, but for the sake of the topic of sensitive skin, that part looked a little something like this:

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Face Wash
  • Facial scrub
  • Toothpaste/Mouthwash/Floss
  • Moisturizer
  • Toner
  • Makeup (this one particularly freaked me out)
  • Body Wash
  • Shaving lotion/foam
  • Deodorant (also scary to switch)
  • Heat protectant for my 3,000 pounds of hair
  • Lotion (I prefer body cream)
  • Laundry Detergent (assuming since all my clothes are touching my skin, this made sense to me)

Blessing in Young Living

I knew Young Living was supposed to be safe, but I looked up the ingredients anyway.

I couldn’t find anything that would harm me.

In fact, they were the only company I could find who didn’t spray their plants, hand-weeded, and didn’t add anything synthetic to their products, so all systems were a go for Essential Rewards!

Steve (the hubby) and I decided on our budget, figured out which of the products we could stretch (mostly all, as they’re super concentrated), and started in on building a new home like we’d done years ago, but this time we’d do it right.

Results

When you don’t have the budget to buy every single thing in one fell swoop, your rise to normal is a slow progression.

Because of that, I just got used to feeling better without any of my prior symptoms returning.

It didn’t seem like anything miraculous when you’re not exactly in a stage of life where you can focus on yourself, either. Two little boys, a full-time job, friends, family…you get it.

Until one day, years later, I realized just how much better we had become.

Air BNB

Last year, for our ten year wedding anniversary, we took a trip to Boston and stayed at Cape Cod.

We had the cutest little beach house, and it was perfect, except for one thing: the second we walked in the house, we threw the windows open, put all their products under the sink, and after knocking down the intense fake fragrance smell, ran the diffuser like crazy.

We used the towels provided in our Air BNB, and I immediately smelled toxic laundry detergent/fabric softener.

I was nervous, but without any other option, I did what I had to do.

After two days, my skin was itchy, I felt all the symptoms of a yeast infection coming on, and my nose was stuffy.

I was using all of our own non-toxic products.

The only difference was the fragrance in the air and synthetic junk in our towels and sheets.

I had the hardest time sleeping on those sheets and woke well before sunrise just to get out of the bed and away from that intense headache-making smell.

Grateful for Fake Sensitivity

I realized how good I had it with Young Living’s toxin-free lifestyle that weekend.

I can’t believe what a huge shift it was in just a day or two.

Weirdly, I’m glad I had to go back to my old life for just a couple of days.

It hit home even more why my purpose for writing, teaching, and sharing the Young Living lifestyle matters so much.

It further lit my fire to bring this to you every day.

Lavender Mint Conditioner: A Customer's Review 1

Lavender Mint Shampoo

Here’s what we really think about it.

Usage

Using this conditioner, you need to be careful not to use too much.

I have so much hair that is very thick and tangles easily, so I was used to pouring tons into my hand so my old, toxin-filled junk would eventually do the trick.

Not with this conditioner!

After washing with my diluted version of Lavender Mint Shampoo, I only needed a pea-sized amount.

PEA. SIZED.

The first time I used it was a bit hilarious since I just figured it was like every other conditioner. I could’ve conditioned six heads of hair that day!

The reason why: concentration!

Just like so many Young Living products, you’re buying in bulk without the heavy containers.

Results

I work it only through the bottom of my hair, staying away from my scalp (that will make my hair too oily), and I absolutely love the outcome!

My highlights look great. My hair feels soft. I can run a comb through it, which is miraculous with this mop!

The best part was that I used this super small bottle over the course of 7 months. That was unheard of with my 32 oz. bottle I used to buy in the store!

I have been so pleased with the results that I know I’ll never use another conditioner!

What Do Other People Think?

I help admin. a group on Facebook of now over 19,000 people {both members and non}, who weigh in on Young Living’s products every day, so I thought I’d include some of the thoughts I read there to help round out your view on this product.

  • “…my conditioner lasted 6 months.”
  • “When the conditioner gets low I add a little hot water from the shower so I get every last drop!!”
  • “I let the conditioner sit for a min or 2. My hair feels thicker and my high lights look like i just had them done!”
  • “Dilute the conditioner like a third to make it less thick and add like 15 drops of a oil you like like Ylang or lime or lavender.”
  • “Cut down on the amount! I only use like a dime size amount. I rub the conditioner only on the ends.”
  • “Get a shower brush and brush your hair while finishing.”
  • “I used 1/3. Rest filled with water. I’m so in love with YL shampoo and conditioner and I’ll never go back.”

Final Thoughts

You get a lot of bang for your buck with this one, but be sure to only use a little bit!

I love this conditioner and will never go back to anything else!

To make it even better, I utilize a program called Essential Rewards where I get 25% of my purchases back in points to use on my next time shopping.

And if that wasn’t enough, I get 24% off products because I’m a wholesale member.
