Skin Essence (International Delivery)
Skin Essence is one of our absolute favourite organic skincare lines for cold-pressed oils & healing creams that are Canadian made and have been around for over 20 years.
Soothing recommendations for the winter:
- Chocolate Mandarin Hand & Body balm is perfect for soothing dry, rough skin for the winter, and it smells like heaven.
- Another favourite is the E-cream which should be called magic cream. It’s ideal for helping to treat eczema, rosacea, sun burns, insect bites, diaper rash, and itchy skin.
- Rosehip seed oil is our year-round favourite oil. It naturally brightens the skin and offers luxurious hydration. It’s great for reducing the appearance of sun damage and fine lines, preventing scarring, rejuvenating skin cells, and healing broken capillaries.
