consonant • all natural skincare
I came across Consonant quite recently while working on a piece about natural sunscreen. Admittedly, I had not heard of the brand before, but I loved The Perfect Sunscreen and their branding (I'm pretty big on branding), so I hit their website to learn more. It was then that I learned that they are Canadian (as are all my favourite clean beauty brands!!), and based out of Toronto! Super exciting!
So first off, let me tell you why I love the sunscreen. IT’S TINTED!!! Omg, this stuff goes on gorge. It’s just the type of product that you expect is filled with garbage, because that’s how good it looks. But it’s not! It’s natural. Which makes me love it a zillion times more. That, and it protects you from the sun!
*sidebar - I’m really glad that sun protection is finally becoming a *hot* topic, because our generation is too smart for that sh*t!!
Next, I have to tell you about what I’m going to refer to as the power-duo: HydrExtreme & the Ultra Moisturizing Organic Face Cream. These two products work hand in hand to moisturize your skin without leaving a sticky or greasy finish, which is great for those of us (all of us) who don’t have time to let that shit dry!
The HydrExtreme is a super lightweight serum unlike anything I have ever used. It glides on smoothly and absorbs quickly so you really feel like you have nothing on. The first time I used it I actually wasn't sure if I had applied enough - but it's supposed to feel like that. Like nothing!!
The Organic Face Cream is also very lightweight and a little goes a long way! I only need one pump to cover my whole face and neck. It's formulated with tea tree oil and niacinamide to help prevent blemishes, but is gentle enough for all skin types! I still struggle a lot with acne (when will it end?!), so I'm extra happy to have found something that will help ditch my zits naturally, without drying out my skin.
What goes on your body
goes IN YOUR BODY.
I'm nothing less than obsessed with this NATURAL Dealkalizing Deodorant, because I've tried just about every natural deodorant on the block and let me tell you, most of them kinda stink (pun intended). I've been using the scented version which smells like delicious essential oils, and it keeps me feeling fresh all day long. And I'm a sweaty lady, so if it works for me, I'm pretty confident it'll work for you.
So why go natural? What goes on your body goes IN YOUR BODY.
We don’t eat nasty, unpronounceable chemicals, so why slather them on your face or body?? A lot of conventional brands would have us believe that their complicated formulations are more efficacious than natural ones, but it’s simply not true. If you think about how great your body and mind feel after eating lots of whole foods - apply this principle to your skincare. Why wouldn’t the same be true??
If you're a luxury skincare junkie and you don't think natural is for you, let me tell you - these products are luxury. They feel better than any department store brand, they work better, and you'll have piece of mind knowing that what you're using is actually nourishing your skin.
And if you're still unsure, use "JENN15" to get 15% off your Consonant purchase (*until July 12) and I promise you won't be disappointed. And if you live downtown, be sure to check out their brand new location at 819 Queen West!
