As an esthetician trying new product lines is like an adventure for me. Getting to experience the different nontoxic ingredient combinations and figure out what skin types they will work best for is a thrill and I’m always excited to share great new finds with you guys! Saison Beauty products were sent to me awhile back and this product line intrigued me because they gear their products around the seasons, and they use particular ingredients that will work best in certain seasons throughout the year- how seriously cool is that? Because as we all know too well now, as the seasons change, so does our skin which can bring along a heap of issues with it! Saison’s approach is “to treat and revitalize our skin as it responds to the environmental conditions throughout the year. Saison products ARE concentrated with the highest-quality, organic plant extracts. We start with antioxidant-rich fruits, potent herbs and fragrant flowers. And, through a variety of extraction methods, we gain the necessary vitamins and nutrients to feed, enhance and fortify skin.” Rightfully fitting for the season, Saison sent me their Winter collection to keep my skin exfoliated and extra hydrated-and boy do they deliver!!
Winter Cleansing Oil: In my opinion this is what really sets Saison apart because cleansing properly in the winter is often overlooked. A cleansing oil is really the only way to go in the colder, drier months because it’s definitely going to amp up the hydration instead of stripping the skin of it’s natural oils. This is made to balance your skin during the winter with their signature winter blend of organic meadow foam, green tea, jojoba and safflower oils. This blend of oils are an important blend or antioxidants that are built to nourish your skin this time of year. I like to use this oil with my Clarisonic for an even deeper clean and it leaves my skin super soft and smooth! Retail: $47 for 1.7 oz.
Winter Cleansing Grains: Ok so I loooooove this exfoliator so much! It really does an exceptional job of removing the dead skin away and leaving you with a glowy and healthy complexion for the winter!! I love the ingredients they use for this of organic rice, natural clay and organic milk and honey powders to assist in a super gentle yet effective exfoliation process that leaves my skin feeling extra squeaky clean. What I love most about this product is that YOU make your own consistency, simply add a few drops of water and form your own paste however thick or thin you want it!! Retail: $36
Winter Botanical Lotion Spray: This gem is made with Saison’s blend of super concentrated botanical extracts of organic lavender, holy basil, peppermint and rose while aloe vera and glycerin work to keep the skin hydrated! This is much more then your average toner because this is truly refreshing your skin while keeping it hydrated at the same time-perfect for those cold winter months!! Retail: $39 for 1.7 oz.
Winter Moisturizer: Saison’s blend of meadowfoam, organic green tea and absorb acid are made to even skin tone and stimulate collagen production to leave your skin smooth, balanced and super hydrated. These powerhouse ingredients will rejuvenate the skin as well as prevent aging all while being lightweight and non-pore clogging at the same time! While this moisturizer wasn’t really for me as I have acne prone and quite oily skin, I highly recommend this for mature, dry skin types!! Retail: $54 for 1.7 oz.
So here’s the deal, this collection from Saison is made for mature and dry skin types and I can’t stress that enough. While I enjoyed these products- they were a little too hydrating for my oily skin right now! The exfoliator is a staple for me and does the job impeccably well and I highly, highly recommend this collection for those who have dry, aging skin and are longing for that youthful, dewy glow because let me tell you- these products will deliver the glow!!
