I don’t know about you but this winter my skin is in dire straights, and not like the 80s rock band.
It’s exceptionally tight and dry, and my lips feel like they are the Sahara. I feel like I’ve tried everything except escaping to a warmer climate.
Recently introduced to the Canadian brand, Smith Farms Natural Skincare, I was intrigued to see what a natural skincare line could do for my sorry state of a face.
Launched in 2009 by sisters, Julia and Becky Sinclair-Smith who reside in Western Quebec, this all natural skincare line creates chemical, paraben, detergent, artificial fragrance, synthetic preservative-free products that are gentle on your skin as well as being gluten and cruelty free. You can check out all the wonderful ingredients they use, here.
All their products are lovingly made on their family farm, where the brand gets its name and ethos.
Starting with a body lotion, the brand now carries lip, body, and face products. Here are my favourites:
I am a massive skeptic when it comes to natural products claiming they can take my make-up off. Nine times out of 10 those claims can not stand up to my mascara and leave me looking like a wet, disappointed panda. But this! This cleaner does what it claims all while smelling delicious and not drying out my skin.
I love me any moisturizer that comes in a pump as it keeps your dirty paws out of the formula. This face cream not only smells amazing but it leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated without feeling sticky, and is antioxidant and vitamin rich, helping to regenerate for a balanced skin.
This top-selling hand cream is super fast absorbing while also being long lasting. It does not leave my hands feeling like I just ate a bucket of chicken and smells like a lovely mix of lavender and peppermint.
With lips as dry and flaky as mine I thought there would be no hope in transforming these kissers without some tropical weather intervention. But I was wrong! The Smith Farms Shea Butter Lip Balm is…wait for it…the ‘bomb’! Made with natural Canadian beeswax, vegetable and nut butters, this balm has made me kissable once again.
All in all the Smith Farms Natural Skincare line has done everything for me this winter…except fixing me a hot toddy. I am a huge fan and think you will be, too.
