Products C/O of Snowberry Beauty

This is a big one, friends. One of my resolutions this year is to share more clean beauty brands and share it in a way that’s thorough and comprehensive.

It’s a pet peeve of mine to read a blogger’s “review” of a product I’m genuinely interested in and it’s just a three paragraph post that’s a re-write of a press release. I’ve been guilty of that in the past, so, here we are, doing better.

This brand came across my radar because they reached out to me asking if I wanted to try out their products. I agreed with the caveat that I wanted to test out the products for at least a month before sharing my thoughts on them. New products sometimes take a while for my skin to positively react to them so I wanted to give them a fair chance and I’m so glad I did.

A Bit About Snowberry Beauty

It’s a New Zealand company named after a NZ plant that has been long known to soothe and heal skin. It’s a brand based in nature and derived from botanicals.

They’re a sustainable brand with a high commitment to being honest and transparent about their manufacturing process. They have a number of accolades under their belt with the most recent one being a 2019 award for Excellence in Climate Action.

This is a company I can get behind. Not only are their products clean, but their processes are as well.

What Products I’ve Used

The brand kindly sent me a care package with the three products shown above: The Gentle Cleanse and Tone Cleaner, The New Radiance Serum, and the Nourishing Lite Cream.

Like I mentioned earlier, I’ve been using all three consistently once per day for about 6 weeks now and I wanted to break them down and share what I liked and how they worked.

1. Gentle Cleanse and Tone Light Foaming Cleanser

My skin tends to dry out with cleanser and toner combination washes so I was a bit skeptical with this one. To date, I’ve not had a dry patch from using this product.

It’s a bit of an odd consistency right out of the tube but glides on the skin nicely and smells really natural.

I hate strong scented facial cleansers and this is a lovely natural scent from the honey and kiwifruit it’s formulated from.

2. New Radiance Face Serum

It’s only been recently that I’ve started to explore the wonderful (and expensive) world of serums. I’ve been a cleanse and moisturize type of girl my whole life.

But if there’s one product from Snowberry that I would recommend getting (if you could only purchase one) this is it.

It’s a concentrated serum with copper tripeptide complex, Kanuka honey extract from Snowberry Gardens, and Hyaluronic acid.

3. Nourishing Lite Cream

This was my least favorite product of the three. I love rich, heavy moisturizers that sink right into my skin and for some reason this one felt a bit flimsy and at times it felt like I was applying it topically with little to no skin penetration.

Basically, I didn’t love the consistency of it and although it was still pretty hydrating I feel like it didn’t do the best job during cold temps.
