I’ve been using this beautiful organic cruelty-free skincare line from Saison “season” for over a month now and truly feel it’s pure luxury to your skin. If you want to provide yourself with a nice treat that allows your skin to say “ahhh thank you”, I highly recommend giving this skincare line a whirl. I am big on organic ingredients used on your skin, so I was super excited to try out these products. I did try Saison’s full Autumn line except for the moisturizer which contains wheat germ in it (if you’re gluten intolerant I steer clear of topical ingredients that contain gluten), so I used their Spring moisturizer instead which doesn’t contain gluten. I actually like mixing them up as it is perfect for this combination fall and spring weather living in San Diego! **Just a note for those gluten intolerant: Saison’s Autumn, Winter, and Winter Ultra Nourishing Moisturizers contain wheat germ.**
Prior to Saison, I had only tried one other oil cleanser and I was quite surprised with my skin awakening experience. At first, I was very taken back because I naturally like bubbles…..and foam…as bubbles previously provided me with this overall sense of a clean feeling. So, the concept of just strictly using oils to wash my face was very different than what I was used to. First let me say, my initial experience washing my face with this product left me feeling a tad bit confused on how I really felt about the product. However, two weeks into it, I completely changed my perspective on my experience! Initially, I felt like my problematic areas were starting to surface more. But if you stick to the course, after a few weeks your skin will feel so hydrated and smooth. I also had a radiant glow. The ingredients alone are just extremely nurturing and the combination of the essential oils leaves you feeling like you just left a beauty spa. The oils are so gentle, it smells great and my pores have seen a huge improvement in a month. I love products that only contain around ten ingredients or less and this fit the bill.
If you want that super “deep” clean feeling, then you can use the cleansing oil combined with a cleansing brush. I definitely suggest using with a wash cloth to get your makeup off. But, if you’re like me and love that extra exfoliant feeling, then you’re going to LOVE using their Autumn Cleansing Grains combined in your cleansing process. The cleansing grains are so safe and gentle that you could really use this everyday. I like to use a little bit at night prior to the cleansing oil to help remove the long term makeup that I wore all day. Most exfoliants I come across contain some sort of scrub and a bazillion ingredients these days, however this one is made from: baking soda, organic pineapple, organic milk powder, organic grape, organic rice, and a fragrance made from essential oils. It provides the perfect texture for young to mature skin, so really this can be used on any skin type. I like that it’s made in a powder form so you can really scoop out what you need and combine it with water for your cleanse. It’s a great way to help remove impurities and gently exfoliate your skin without harsh chemicals or unknown ingredients.
After using the cleansing oil and prior to your moisturizer, if you want that refreshing spritzing tone feeling then that’s where this Autumn Botanical Spray comes in. I love this spray because you can take it with you throughout the day should you need a refresher, or to help keep your skin hydrated. It is filled with awesome antioxidants and minerals such as: Aloe Vera, Organic Chamomile, Organic Calendula, Organic Lavender, Organic Rosemary, Sweet Potato, Grapefruit Seed Extract and Fragrance made from essential oils. Just mist this over your face after your wash and enjoy the healing aromatic natural fragrance. I even mist it over my makeup throughout the day if you have super dry skin or the weather is making your face feel stiff.
Lastly, the Spring Moisturizer has such a rejuvenating feeling and helps to hydrate at night or even in the morning prior to makeup application. I love the special feeling of Organic Green Tea and Organic Apricot Kernel working into your pores. The L-Ascorbic Acid works actively to even skin tone and stimulate collagen production to smooth out your skin naturally. It sets your face prior to heading to bed or starting your day with makeup. I am not that big over heavy creams, therefore, I really enjoy the light texture and the natural fragrance and ingredients which helps my skin to not become irritated.
