Consonant Ultra Moisturizing Organic Face Cream Review

Consonant Ultra Moisturizing Organic Face Cream

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing another one from Consonant Skincare – the Ultra Moisturizing Organic Face Cream. This product came from the amazing (skin)care package sent to me by Stashy from Stash Matters. You should follow her, she is a makeup and skincare expert!

Onto the review! Here’s what it says on the website about the Ultra Moisturizing Organic Face Cream:

Lightweight, persistent hydration for normal, combination and oily skin. This lightweight formula penetrates quickly with a non-greasy finish. Your skin will look and feel healthier, more radiant and youthful from the very first use. Non-comedogenic.

I have to say that the description is very true. It is a very lightweight moisturizer, the consistency is very light for a cream type formulation.

It is highly moisturizing without being greasy. Although my skin is more on the normal to dry side, this facial cream adds enough moisture that my skin doesn’t need anything heavier.

Below is the ingredient list, in case the photo of the packaging is not clear enough to read:

Aqua/Water, Glyceryl Stearate, Vitis Vinifera Seed Oil* (Grape Seed Oil), Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide, Niacinamide, Butyrospermum Parkii* (Shea Butter), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Coconut Oil), Tocopheryl Acetate, Glycerin, Cassia Olea Europea Seed Oil* (Olive Oil), Persea Gratissima Seed Oil* (Avocado Oil), Borago Officinalis Seed Oil* (Borage Oil), Oenothera Biennis Seed Oil* (Primrose Oil), Cetyl Alcohol, Linum Usitatissimum* (Flaxseed Oil), Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil* (Jojoba Oil), Lactoperoxidase, Glucose Oxidase, Algae*, Panax Ginseng Root Extract*, Chamomilla Recutita Leaf Extract* (Chamomile), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract*, Echinacea Angustifolia Leaf Extract*, Cucumis Sativus Extract* Cucumber), Rosemarinus Officinalis Extract*, Calophyllum Tacamahaca (Tamanu Oil), Alpha Bisabolol, Malileuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil (Tea Tree Oil), Lecithin, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid.   *Certified organic oils and extracts  100% Natural

Just look at all of the skin-friendly ingredients – the various seed and nut oils, algae, ginseng, chamomile, aloe, cucumber, echinacea, and rosemary! No wonder my skin is so happy!

I think that this facial cream would work well for all skin types, especially sensitive skin, unless you have an allergy / sensitivity to certain ingredients. This cream contains Tee Tree Oil which is often a trigger for me, but the concentration must be low enough that it doesn’t bother my skin at all!

I highly recommend this face cream if you want lightweight, yet effective, natural and organic hydration.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Consonant Skincare DHE Mask Review

Consonant Skincare DHE Mask

Hello, hello!

I have several skincare items that I will be reviewing over the next week or so that arrived in a surprise care package (skincare, that is) from the lovely Stashy from Stash Matters! If you aren’t following her yet, change that immediately, she is a makeup and skincare EXPERT. I’ve tried several things upon her recommendation, and have yet to be disappointed!

Today I’m reviewing the DHE Mask from Consonant Skincare. Consonant Skincare is a Canadian brand, based in Toronto, Ontario. Here’s a little bit of an introduction to the brand, taken from their company philosophy page:

Consonant Skincare is Canada’s leading line of premium skin care that is as luxurious as the most expensive fashion label brand, as effective as the best-known cosmeceutical brand, and as healthy as the leading natural brand. Our regimen is edited and effortless. We believe you should not have to make any sacrifices to achieve your best skin. All of our products are 100% natural, and formulated with the highest possible concentration of organic botanical ingredients. But they are still skin care, not salad dressing: They improve the look of your skin with results you will notice immediately. When you use our natural regimen, healthy and radiant skin will be revealed without the use of synthetic ingredients. No parabens, no sulfates, no petroleum ingredients, and certainly no phthalates.

The DHE Mask is the only facial mask that they currently offer. Here’s what it says on the website:

The DHE mask is a uniquely multitasking, 100% natural mask that has been formulated to Detoxify, Hydrate and Exfoliate. Mineral-rich Manicouagan Clay, extracted from the site of a 215 million year old asteroid crash in Quebec, detoxifies and clarifies skin with the help of Willow Bark and Tea Tree Extracts. Potent Cassia Angustifolia, Grape Seed and Olive Oils nourish and deliver optimal hydration making skin plump, firm and beautifully radiant. A unique blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acid fruit enzymes gently exfoliate, revealing the softer and smoother skin underneath. The result is brighter, healthier, and younger looking skin from the very first use.

When I first applied this clay-based facial mask, my skin began to tingle, which always makes me nervous with my sensitive skin, because a tingle can quickly turn into a full-on face melting experience. Thankfully, the tingle dissipated quickly, making the 30 minutes go by without further incident. I find that a lot of clay masks tend to make my skin feel dry afterwards, but this one makes my skin feel hydrated, smooth and radiant. Despite having some tea tree oil in the ingredient list, my skin did not react badly like it normally does, which leaves me to suspect that it is the amount, or concentration, of Tea Tree oil that triggers a reaction. Pure Tea Tree oil makes my skin turn into an itchy sunburn-like redness, but this mask did not leave my skin red or itchy!

This is a beautiful facial mask. I believe that it is suitable for all skin types unless you have sensitivities or allergies to certain ingredients.

I’m torn between this facial mask and the one from Sukin for my favourite! I guess that it is a tie!

Have you tried this facial mask? What is your favourite facial mask?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
