  1. i use a very similar cinnamon scrub myself
    if i stick to it long enough my skin glows, also i believe the oats and cinnamon are great in removing blemishes and aiding radiance?
    thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Hey there Reem!!! 😀 Thanks for commenting and sharing! 😀 I just checked out your blog and I love it! 😉 I’m officially a follower! 😀 I have heard that cinnamon has several skin care and health benefits. 🙂 I’m scared to try it though, because I have sensitive skin. 😛 I do love the way oats make my skin so soft though. 🙂 Perhaps if I use a very small amount of cinnamon with oats I may not have a reaction…?? What do you think? I do want to give it a shot. I just want to be careful as well. 🙂

    • Hello again Reem! Thanks for your input. I appreciated it! 😉 Well, I tried putting a very small amount of cinnamon on my face and….I LOVED IT! 😀 I decided to add cinnamon to an egg mask and it worked wonders! Some of my pimples were reduced while I was wearing the mask! I didn’t notice until after the application was rinsed off. I was in complete shock! 😀 So thank you for sharing again! 😉 I will be sure to mention you in a post I’m going to do soon about the magic of cinnamon! LOL! 😉 Thanks, Reem!
