Smith Farms Natural Skincare was created by two sisters, Julia + Becky, in 2009 on their family farm in Quebec, Canada. All of their products are “gentle and contain no synthetic chemicals, sulfates, parabens, detergents, artificial fragrances, synthetic preservatives, or petroleum based ingredients.” On top of that, all of their packaging is minimalist and eco-friendly!
I recently heard about this wonderful Canadian skincare company and decided to give it a try. Here are my thoughts:
Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser
The Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser is absolutely dreamy! I am so particular with my cleansers because I find the textures to be off with a lot of the more natural products but this cleanser hits texture spot on. It is a beautiful milky cleanser that turns to foam when you add water and rub in circular motions all over your face. It has an orange-y citrus scent to it that is both refreshing and invigorating.
Orange Blossom Facial Toner
Toners are a hit or miss for me. Sometimes I believe in them wholeheartedly, other times I’m much too lazy to include a toner in my skincare routine. That being said, this orange blossom facial toner is literally heaven. It is soothing on my inflamed skin, it smells divine (neroli/orange blossom is one of my favourite scents), and it prepares my skin for the oil or moisturizer that I apply next. I definitely prefer a spritz/spray bottle for toners however reusable bamboo skincare rounds work perfectly for applying this pump-toner.
Youth Renewing Facial Oil
As someone who has oily skin, I hesitate to use an oil. I know that like-beats-like and using a facial oil is actually supposed to help eliminate oily skin but I’ve never been brave enough to try it consistently. This youth renewing facial oil is a really nice, light oil. It has a light scent of rose and bergamot and it really absorbs into the skin nicely. I have only been using it at night as I find my makeup doesn’t sit really well on oil-moisturized skin. Overall it is very hydrating and I’m excited to see more longer term effects as I continue to use it.
Marshmallow Face Cream
I freaking love a good face cream. The smell, the texture, the way it sits on my skin…this is what excites me most when it comes to my skincare routine. This light weight face cream is not oily at all which I love. It is hydrating and perfect for use in the morning. My make-up sits nicely on top of it and I definitely find my skin is well hydrated without getting that oily look halfway throughout the day.
Overall, I’m really loving the skincare from Smith Farms. It has reinvigorated my desire to have a complete and natural skincare routine. I also love that I can switch up the moisturizer for the day and oil for the night. The only thing I find that I’m missing is a great mask, but maybe that will be up and coming!
