If you use a face wash, chances are, it’s one of those with micro-beads in them, which allows the wash to exfoliate your skin, leaving it feeling softer and fresher. They’re awesome on your face. As it turns out, though, they’re pretty horrible for the environment, since they’re made from plastic, with literally trillions of them ending up in our waterways and aquatic habitats every single day. If you still want to exfoliate without contributing to the planet’s pollution, there’s always the brown sugar route. You can also opt for something like Harry’s Daily Face Wash.
Instead of using plastic micro-beads, the product uses volcanic rock to exfoliate your skin. Not only is it a more natural alternative micro-beads, it’s way more masculine sounding, so you can proudly proclaim “I exfoliated my face today… with volcanic rocks” without feeling a hint of shame.
Aside from having awesome volcanic rocks, Harry’s Daily Face Wash also contains aloe and coconut water to properly moisturize your skin, along with eucalyptus and peppermint to make it feel refreshed. It’s foamy, gentle, and non-drying, so it should function just as well as any other wash you’ve used so far. There’s no information on exactly what kind of volcanic rock they’re using and where they’re getting it from, which means you can totally make up any story you want (“The rocks came from the explosion in that movie Dante’s Inferno”) without anyone being able to verify its inaccuracy – always a good thing.
Available now, Harry’s Daily Face Wash is priced at $7 for each 5.1oz tube.
