Transparency is the new trend; throughout modern society, people are endeavoring to learn more about what they’re eating, what they’re wearing (did you know that, according to a recent mindbodygreen article, one fast-fashion T-shirt “uses 700 gallons of water” to be made?!), and where their trash is going (check out The Story of Stuff for more on that subject). The beauty world is also following this trend by heading down the vegan and cruelty-free road. While “vegan” does not necessarily mean perfect, its “cruelty-free” partner is usually the tagline that actually sells me on a product.

Growing up I never gave too much thought to the type of cleanser I used on my face. As long as my face was clean I was happy. However, as I got older I realized I needed more than clean skin. I wanted a product that refreshed, hydrated, and treated my skin to some beneficial ingredients.  I now have it all with Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Tone and Instant Deep Cleanser.

 

Founded in New Zealand, Snowberry is all about creating premium natural anti-aging skincare. Their products are designed to combat the effects of free radicals, dehydration, and discoloration, just to name of a few. Perhaps this is why they won the 2011 Discover Beauty Award at Cosmoprof USA.

One of my favorite aspects of the Snowberry skincare line is the fact their products are free of parabens, fragrance, artificial colors, alcohols, or petrochemicals. Every product is also dermatologist tested, but not tested on animals. Snowberry is also the first skincare company in New Zealand to receive the carboNZeroCert™ certification. This means they have a low carbon footprint and strive to be a more environmentally sustainable company.

After reading about Snowberry, I was excited to try their Gentle Cleanse & Tone and Instant Deep Cleanser.

Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Toner

When you have sensitive, dry skin like I do, you want a cleanser that is gentle and doesn’t strip your skin of moisture. The Gentle Cleanse & Tone does exactly what its name says, cleanses and tones.

This is thanks to ingredients like:

  • Plant saponins from the nut of the soap tree
  • Kiwi fruit, kumquat and green pea protein extracts
  • Naturally humectant vegetable glycerin, vitamin E and oil from the Andiroba tree nut

Each time I use the Gentle Cleanse & Tone my skin always feels hydrated, replenished, and nice and smooth. I never have to worry about any skin irritation or that dry, tight sensation some cleansers cause.

 

Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser

I also tested out the Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser. Known as “the supernatural cleanser and makeup remover,” by Snowberry insiders, this cleanser uses highly concentrated oils to cleanse and re-hydrate skin.

The cleanser features a blend of:

  • Macadamia nut oil
  • Indian neem oil
  • Inca Inchi oil
  • Lingonberry oil
  • Coenzyme Q10

Even though the Instant Deep Cleanser is formulated with oils, it can be used on all skin types. It worked well on my dry skin. I only need a few pumps to remove all my makeup and get my skin nice and clean. But what I love most is how my skin feels after I use the product; soft and smooth. It also doesn’t irritate my eyes, which is especially nice when I need to remove my eye makeup.

After using the Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Tone and the Instant Deep Cleanser, my skin is getting more from my cleansing routine. It no longer feels stripped of moisture or dulled after cleansing. Instead, my skin is soft and smooth and has a nice healthy glow.

I must confess something…I’ve become a skincare junkie. I’m constantly searching for the best and the newest, especially those products geared towards anti-aging. I nerd out reading about new skincare innovations and technology. And if there is a gadget involved, I’m all about it.
