Everytime I'd go to the health food store I'd eye the Green Beaver Company skincare products. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to try the whole range of skincare items and absolutely adored these products. For those skincare junkies who have been looking for 100% natural products I highly suggest you have a look at the Green Beaver Company. Several factors implored me to try out the products; 100% natural certified organic (with as many Canadian grown ingredients) & biodegradable , utilizes ecologically sound packaging materials that are recyclable, no chemical fragrances, no dyes, no detergents & preservatives. The Green Beaver Company skincare range contains aloe vera as their base ingredient, which is a great natural remedy for troubled-sensitive skin. The real standouts in the skincare range were;
Daily Facial Cleanser with Purifying Grapefruit & Soothing Aloe
This was one of my favourite's from the Green Beaver Company.
Gently lathers to remove makeup leaves skin soft not tight. I don't like cleansers that leave that tight/dry itchy feeling & this cleanser definitely doesn't do that. I recommend using an eye-makeup remover prior to using the cleanser. This cleanser is gentle so waterproof eye-makeup or thicker mascara will need an extra step in removal.

Oil free liquid which foams due to its pumping action. Made with lemon extracts and witch hazel. I use this as a toner. After washing my face with the Purifying Grapefruit facial cleanser I saturate a cotton pad with the mousse & wipe skin. Leaves skin refreshed & removes any traces of makeup left.

Apres-Ski Winter Face Cream
Contains shea & cocoa butter, colloidal oatmeal, aloe and a few more naturally good ingredients. This is for the driest of skintypes & will be perfect for Canadian winters. As I tend to be oilier in the Summer this cream is too moisturizing for my face therefore I've been using it as an eye & hand cream. The scent reminds me of beeswax candles which I love!
Winter Lip Balm
Emollient & soothing! Lips are soft, moisturized, and flake-free. The only thing that is missing is an SPF other than that works well. I love applying this to my lips before bedtime & in the morning my lips are baby soft.
Unlike other natural based skincare lines the Green Beaver Company is definitely affordable and available at natural health food stores across Canada.
