Alaffia is an advancing gender equality and alleviating poverty through the fair trade of handcrafted shea butter in Togo, West Africa. As if that isn't great enough, the price of each of these items are affordable and work fantastic! I have been using them for a few weeks and my skin has really taken a liking to the cleanser, toner and cream. It's a great little system I use daily.
Step 1: Facial Cleanser
It's super lightweight too which I love. It spreads on evenly and doesn't feel like I have a heavy cream cleanser on my face just a light lotion like cleanser. First I just wet my face and neck and then rubbed in circles with my finders to get rid of makeup, dirt and oil. When I washed my face off with my washcloth the water had a gray tint to it, so that was a proven fact that this lightweight cleanser has a huge cleaning power punch to it. I could see all the days wear on my face go down the drain. Only $13.95!
Step 2: Facial Toner
What the toner does is balances your skin's pH, maximize hydration and provides extra protection against environmental damage with all those lovely ingredients that are in the cleanser above. After I spray this onto my face and pat it lightly and give it a minute to dry, I can feel a little bit of tightness on my skin but not the least bit of a dry feeling. I like the way it feels, I just have to hold my breath when doing it because I don't care for the natural smell it has. Only $11.85!
Step 3: Face Cream
It again has all the same moisturizing ingredients as the other two products along with others that help maintain your skin and have it looking and feeling clean and soft. This is actually the face cream I go to even when I am not using the cleanser or toner that day. I just am a sucker for a soft face, especially when after I already applied the cream, I keep on touching my skin because of the silky feeling it gives! This one is the most expensive of the three at $16.95, but so worth it and a little goes a long way.
