Here's a refreshing burst for spring- LUA Skincare's WILDFLOWER Skin Tonic! Chamomile, lavender, and vanilla make an awesome trio, for sure. Designed as a soothing stress reliever, the colorful label itself is uplifting. The tonic also makes a great post-mask toner. We love the fruity-smelling blend....and it's vegan! Another plus, the packaging is glass and can be reused or recycled! Check it out here.

We are loving the aloe and amino acid cleanser from NIU BODY (pronounced "new body"). It is super gentle and leaves the skin cleansed and fresh. This cleanser is especially wonderful for dry skin and contains moisturizing aloe vera, repairing amino acids, illuminating green tea, and depuffing cucumber. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, artificial preservatives, and animal by products. We also love that the website lets you know how long the product will typically last when used twice a day, which is about four months. Check it out here.

Finding a good facial serum can be a bit tricky when you have sensitive skin. We are loving this serum from Just the Goods new line: petal, leaf, root.

All petal, leaf, root. by Just the Goods products are: 

  • made with 100% certified organic plant and mineral-based ingredients 
  • vegan and certified cruelty-free by the Leaping Bunny Program 
  • free from artificial preservatives, colours, and/or fragrances 
  • free from gluten, GMOs, nuts, palm, petrochemicals, and soy
  • offered in glass bottles/jars* and packed in boxes printed on post-consumer paper with plant-based inks using a waterless process

One of the reasons this product is so wonderful for sensitive skin is that it is made with little to no essential oils and features super beneficial ingredients including jojoba seed oil, rosehip seed oil, and camellia seed oil. We love that it's gentle, yet effective. Additionally, the glass container makes it super eco-friendly and you can even save the bottle after you use the product to store other skincare.

Céla by Celine Tadrissi is a skin care company that is inspired and made in Canada. The plant-powered products are formulated with the most potent natural ingredients indigenous to Canada, including seed butters, oils, and extracts. This brand's products are extremely luxurious and high quality, and penetrate deeply into the skin to completely nourish and hydrate.

Céla's line of products are all exceptional; from the formulation, consistency, fragrance, and nourishment, you cannot go wrong with any product. One of the products we are particularly enamored with is the Crème de la Crème Light body cream. This luscious orange and grapefruit scented body cream is super nourishing without being heavy or oily. With five to six pumps, you can luxuriously apply this product to your entire body, which absorbs quickly into the skin. Your skin is left soft, hydrated, glowing, and lightly scented. This product contains the Cela complex of six Canadian botanical extracts: blueberry, elderberry, evening primrose, juniper berry, rosemary, and lavender, which, when combined, reveal skin's natural radiance while protecting it from the environment by supporting its health at the cellular level. Other amazing ingredients include abyssinian oil, cupuacu butter, and grapefruit oil. This body cream is truly magical and we cannot recommend it enough.
