L to R: Kitchen Witch-Siren Salts, Warrior Queen-Radiance Nectar, Meet Me At The Masquerade-Sea Silk, & Elixir of Light- Warrior Queen
Skinchantment is a duo of two sisters from Alberta, Canada. They are a vegan, organic, non-toxic, gluten free, skincare line that also gives back to their local animal sanctuary. Sam and Meg also use fair-trade and wild crafted ingredients when available. I love supporting companies that align with my same beliefs and interests. I also have a strong place in my heart for Canada, so anything I can do to get a Canadian's brand name out there is a plus! Check out their website here! You can also support them by following their Instagram @skinchantment. Skinchantment was also featured in a Goddess Provisions box, which was created by the same makers of Vegan Cuts!
Let's start it off with talking about one of their masks! This green magic here is called the Sea Silk Mask*. Sometimes you just need something to balance out your skin, I mean am I right? I love using this mask as a mid-week mask, as it's supposed to be for problematic skin. The ingredients of the mask: Sea Clay, Organic Green Tea, Organic Kelp, Organic Thyme, & Papaya and Cucumber Extract. I was extremely intrigued by this product since I haven't tried some of these ingredients in my skincare routine. What really drew me in was the sea clay and kelp in this mask. Both of these ingredients are known for detoxifying and pulling out impurities. Thyme is also antibacterial, and happens to be one of my favorite ingredients for acne killing! POW! POW! Cucumber and Papaya are both helpful in brightening the complexion while also being anti-inflammatory. The ingredients are thoughtfully put together in this mask, and you can see an immediate difference after using it. My only problem with this mask is the scent due to its oceanic ingredients. Don't get me wrong the mask is amazing, but a little over powering on the scent of the sea, that is, for me at least. I do use this now only as a spot treatment as opposed to a full mask. I think if you have acne prone skin, this would be a great one to check out.
Ah, the wonderful Radiance Nectars! For a while I was a total toner hater, not going to lie here. But, once Skinchantment sent this Warrior Queen Nectar* to me, everything changed. First I have to say, the mister on this is PERFECTION. I enjoy that this has minimal ingredients, as I feel that a lot of toners usually contain too many ingredients. The ingredients are: Distilled Water, Organic Lemon, Organic Lavender, Organic Gylcerin, and Witch Hazel. This toner is great for balancing the skin. The lavender extracts help to rejuvenate skin, while helping to fade pigmentation and scars. The lemon extract is also antibacterial and helps to remove dead skin cells. The scent smells like lavender, but it is light and relaxing. Plus, it leaves your skin smelling like beautiful flowers, how can you go wrong? I have dry skin, and this didn't dry me out, as I feel other toners have in the past. A+ for me on this radiance nectar!
There is pure love here for this Elixir of Light. Meet the Warrior Queen*! I have been using this oil to oil cleanse, but there is magic in this, as you can also use this as a moisturizer. If you guys have been keeping up with my skin regiment, you know that I stopped oil cleansing. A little while ago I picked this up, and it changed it all. Before when I was oil cleansing I started to develop blackheads, and this helped to clear them up. I definitely think oil cleansing works, you just have to find the right oil combination for your skin.
The ingredients in this are amazing for damaged/scarred skin. Now, I don't have damaged skin per se, but I do have some scarring. I wanted to try this out in hopes that it would reduce inflammation. The ingredients are: Organic Borage Oil, Organic Tamanu Oil, Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil, Organic Rosemary, Organic Calendula, Organic Gotu Kola, and Vitamin E.
As I mentioned in previous posts, Rosemary, Calendula, and Sea Buckthorn are some of my favorite ingredients to use in my skincare routine. Gotu Kola, Borage, Calendula, and Tamanu all have anti-inflammatory properties. Sea Buckthorn helps aid in regeneration and moisturization. Tamanu oil helps to heal skin, while also aiding in regeneration.
I notice after using this oil that my skin appears less red. Other noted differences are that my skin is more plump and it leaves me feeling moisturized. This is yellow in color, so it may look like you are spreading on Iodine, but it doesn't stain your skin at all.
I'll do anything to get my hands on a good bath salt! This Kitchen Witch* bath salt(which by the way the name is adorable)is nothing short of amazing. When you open the lid to this it smells like French cooking ingredients, so much so, I wanted to eat it. Alas, I decided to use it for it's intended use. Since this contains Coconut & Shea Butter, it is a super moisturizing bath. When I stepped out of the bath tub I was amazed at how moisturized my skin was. These bath salts contain pure sea salts to extract the toxins in your body. The Epsom salts in the blend also helped to reduce my pain and keep me calm and relaxed. There are loose herbs in this bath salt, but I didn't have a problem with the clean up or any drain clogging.
The ingredients are: Pure Sea Salt, Epsom Salt, Shea Nut Butter, Coconut Butter, Rosemary, and Sage.
Overall, I really enjoyed everything I tried from Skinchantment. You can tell that they put a lot of love and time into their products. The ingredients are well thought out, making sure that your skin is being kissed by a goddess.
**These products were sent to me. I will always be honest in my reviews whether I have received something or not. I want it to be clear, and I will always be transparent about this.**
Thanks for reading xoxo
