Lowen’s Natural Skincare Reviews Part 5 – In Yo Face! Natural BB Cream

Hello, hello!

Lowen's Natural Skincare

Today I’m continuing with my final review of a  product that came in my awesome PR package from Canadian company Lowen’s Natural Skincare (Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4). Today’s review is on the In Yo Face! Natural BB Cream [info in italics taken from the Lowen’s website]

Lowen's Natural Skincare In Yo Face! Natural Vegan BB Cream

In Yo Face! Natural Vegan BB Cream – Based on the fundamental success of the RIIWDY hand and body lotion (minus the beeswax) In Yo Face! our Vegan BB Cream contains active concentrations of Omega fatty acids (essential acids 3 and 6), Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Niacin (Vitamin B3), Lipoic Acid (Thioctic acid), Vitamin E (Tocopherol), Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate), Hyaluronic Acid (AKA Hyaluron) and a little Zinc Oxide for a little daytime protection from ‘ole Sol.

This is not a tinted BB cream. The In Yo Face! Natural Vegan BB Cream is a little on the thick side, similar to a lot of physical / mineral sunscreens – likely due to the Zinc Oxide in its formulation. And yay, it offers some sun protection because of this!

It soaks into the skin fairly quickly and works well to hydrate without being heavy or greasy feeling. I was fairly surprised because usually creams that feel like this tend to take a little longer to absorb into the skin. It works well for my sensitive, normal to dry skin.

The IYF! Natural Vegan BB Cream works well as a makeup primer too! I’ve worn it with both minimal makeup (concealer and powder) and with full makeup and it gives my skin a smooth base for makeup.

It contains loads of skin friendly ingredients and the only scent is of what it is made of – which I really like.

Ingredients: Aqua, Cetyl Alcohol, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Zinc Oxide (nano), Glycerin, Canola Oil, Camelina Sativa Seed Oil, Polysorbate 80, Lecithin, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Butter, Panthenol, Niacinamide, Thiotic Acid, Tocopherol, Phenoxyethanol, Xanthan Gum, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Rosemary Officinalis Leaf Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hyaluronic Acid

Have you tried this BB cream? Do you have a fave BB cream?

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Cedar Face Cream from Toronto based By Anhesa that I won in an InstaGram giveaway from Whipped Green Girl and Anhesa.  [info in italics taken from the Anhesa website]

By Anhesa Cedar Face Cream

A gentle and mildly-fragranced moisturizer for luminous, supple, and soft skin. Cedar face cream made, especially for dry mature skin, has light broccoli, peach and luscious tucuma Amazonian oils. It nourishes and protects your skin, giving you a smooth, youthful glow. The addition of the scent of cedarwood essential oil leaves you feeling fresh and vibrant (as if you had taken a walk in the woods). 

Ingredients: Aqua, Prunus persica (Peach) kernel oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Ceteraryl Alcohol, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Astrocaryum Tucuma seed butter, Glycerine, Brassica oleracea Italica (Broccoli) seed oil, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Juniperus mexicana (Cedarwood) wood oil

By Anhesa Cedar Face Cream

The Cedar Face Cream is super lightweight and absorbs into the skin quickly. It is highly moisturizing and non-greasy. The scent is woody and fresh, I absolutely love cedarwood essential oil, it smells amazing, without being over-scented.

This works well as either a day or a night cream and plays nicely with makeup. It really does help give the skin a nice glow. I love that it contains minimal ingredients. It is especially great for sensitive skin types!

Thanks for reading.
