Simply the best

The best. I love that you start with a dry face. But also you can dampen your face. I like to just use a wash cloth to moisten my face with warm water. Then apply the scrub.

Glowing skin with all the feels

I waited for the Bamboo Polish to be back in stock and it was absolutely worth the wait. I have very dry, sensitive, mature skin that's still healing from radiation and surgery. The Cream, Moisturizing Wash, Deep Enzyme Cleanse and in the morning, The Citrus Cucumber Toner followed by The Cream or Nurturing Oil truly worked wonders in healing the worst part of the damage to my face as well as the non-stop pain. At this point, with cracking, flaking, blisters and most rashes under control after using IYFS since March 2022 and my skin feeling smooth, this 65-year-young woman really wanted a little extra something, The Bamboo Polish gave me just that by making my face literally glow and feel like newborn skin with no harshness. I took the suggestion of another IYFS skincare user and mixed the Bamboo Polish with my Moisturizing Wash - emulsifying together in wet hands. That was the perfect potion for my compromised, fragile skin as I'm going through chemotherapy. Not only did it smell heavenly, the combo made me look refreshed and healthy. I'd recommend the Polish to anyone with any type of skin. Unlike the Deep Enzyme Cleanse which I love, but can only use at night and will continue to do so as it's wonderful and toning, the combo wash with polish can be used in the morning to wake up my skin 2-3 times a week (the other mornings it's The Citrus Cucumber Toner which when chilled over these humid summer months, is a treat for behind your neck as well). Hint: If you're travelling in hot, sticky weather or having to be in the hospital several days a week for treatment in the heat as I am, I put the toner and The Cream in the refrigerator overnight and transfer them to a small cool pack that fits inside of my tote. That way, when my skin feels coated in city fumes or just hospital ick, I can refresh my face and neck with chilled, wonderful smelling products if needed late afternoon. Love IYFS and can't wait to receive the newest potion; The Bakuchiol Wonder Serum!!! Thank you, Denice and Team <3

Lovey bamboo!

I pair this with my facial cleanser and it exfoliates my dry skin while cleansing. My face feels so clean and soft when done Once I am out of the shower I use the rest of the face products. I cannot express how many compliments I get on my skin since using in your face. Thank you so much for creating this amazing brand brand for your face! Alison Hoernemann

In just a week of using these, my skin is looking way better and I am so thankful for that!

It purifies and revitalizes skin's appearance while greatly reducing clogged pores and removing dead skin. And it is gentle! I was nervous as well about using it, but it left my skin instantly looking better!! I have been non stop lately and just exhausted. My skin was showing it, too. It was looking so dull and awful. I look more bright and awake now! It did not cause any irritation. It is quick and easy, yet so effective! I cannot wait to see what my skin looks like in a month or so. The redness, texture, and dullness of my skin was getting so bad. I was embarrassed for anyone to see me. I am already feeling more confident!
