S.W. Basics in the Press
"I like the idea of toners, but I’ve never actually found a toner that a) works, b) feels good on my skin, c) doesn’t smell like death. Everyone and their brother says toners are essential for oily skin, so I was very happy to try out S.W. Basics’ Apple Cider Vinegar version with no harsh alcohols (it does stink though)."
"Though it’s debatable whether aloe vera has a direct effect on metabolism, it does aid in the stimulation and maintenance of collagen which has been linked to improving metabolism. Plus, by drinking it, you’ll be doubling up on hydration—another key to boosting your metabolism. Win-win."
"A basic rule of natural beauty: If you can’t pronounce the ingredients in a product, don’t put it on your face. This cleanser makes the guesswork easy and delivers results—soft, zit-free skin—without a single sulfate."
"I’m now a month in to using S.W. Basics, and my skin is truly looking better than ever…But, bottom line, this stuff simply works. Plus, if I had a reaction, I’d be able to pinpoint its cause, which has not always been the case with past skin-care products. Even better, I actually had a coworker feel my face recently — it looked that good. Pretty sure she described my skin as feeling like ‘the softest suede.’ Bam! I’m a believer"
