Hello lovelies! A few months ago I came across PEAT-soap, which turned out to be so magical that I haven't touched a regular soap ever since I got this. It's all made in Helsinki, Finland from domestic peat and it doesn't contain any vain chemicals to burden the skin and nature. A 100% quilt- and chemical free washing experience guaranteed!
I bought my soap from LehtoPeat's store in Ähtäri, where they also have the swamp from where the peat comes from. The soap itself is made by Osmia Finland. (Unfortunately their English translation seem to be under construction.)
TURVE-saippuan tuoksu on aivan valloittavan ihana, se tulee eukalyptus- ja patsulikasvin eteerisistä öljyistä.
Before using the soap is really soft, but if you store it in a place where it can dry before you use it again it will last rather long! The soap has a coffee-ish colour and it will stain your soap holder and sink, so beware!
The scent of the peat soap is absolutely gorgeous and comes from the essential oils of eucalyptus tree and patchouli plant.
My skin before I started to use peat soap. . Please note that these pictures have not been edited nor have I used makeup.
Not too pretty a sight, eh? My acne has never been as bad is some have it, but it has bothered me nevertheless. Also I'd like to mention that I have had antibiotics for my acne, but they never worked. It is also a known fact that what you eat shows on your skin, so therefore I have always tried to eat clean, fresh food. Before I used peat soap I used Sebamed, twice a day. For quite some time I haven't been using too much makeup on my skin, so that is not to blame for my blemishes either.
After a month of using peat soap my skin is clearly in a better condition! Now of course not all the pimples and blemishes are gone nor the actual infection under the skin, but at least I haven't gotten any visible, bad looking pimples in some time! Now I don't even feel like putting on makeup, my skin looks so nice and clean as it is!
Jos kiinnostuit TURVE-saippuasta, niin ilouutinen sinulle, Lehtopeatilla on nettikauppa, josta voit kotimaassa tilata ilman postituskuluja oman taikasaippuan!
I have been so happy with the results I've gotten since I started using peat soap that I hardly doubt I'll ever go back to using drugstore skincare products. In addition to peat soap I only use a gentle moisturiser and Bio-Oil before bed. When I'm done with this piece of soap I have in use now I will give a try to pine tar soap, which I have waiting already.
The days are getting colder soon, lets take good care of our skin!
Stay curious, Janina
