Product Review: Talking S.W. Basics (formerly Sprout) Skincare

via Organic Beauty Talk by Organic Beauty Talk on 12/6/12

S.W. Basics of Brooklyn (formerly Sprout…which I have to say I'm a bit partial to) Skincare has got me shouting that simple is better! Their minimal high-quality, organic ingredients along with their artisan packaging makes for a skincare line that's unique and works. With seven products in the mix (Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer, Facial Exfoliant, Eye Makeup Remover, Lip Balm, and Body Scrub), every batch is made by hand in Brooklyn, NY and typically lasts for one year. The name of the person that made each formula as well as the expiration date is labeled on the back of every S.W. Basics product which adds a subtle personal connection for me. S.W. Basics of Brooklyn Skincare keeps my skin clear, soft, smooth and balanced without causing dryness. I saw a noticeable difference in the texture and look of my skin after about a week of use too. The bottles actually lasted a lot longer (a few months) than I thought they would considering their smaller size. My favorites in the line, although a bit hard to choose because each product holds its own, would have to be the Toner and Exfoliant because of their clearing and smoothing effects on my skin. I found the Cleanser especially refreshing during the warmer months that I mostly used it in as well as ideal for my skin routine because I don't wear a lot of foundation. It even warded off the blemishes when I traveled to Houston, which is very hot and humid, and typically causes me to breakout. S.W. Basics is one of the 2012 Organic Beauty Talk Award Winners.
