Review: Snowberry Skincare- Facial Massage Oil & SPF 15 Sun Protection

Snowberry is a very unique company with a very distinct message to all of us. We don’t have to sacrifice quality to be eco-friendly. These products are all made with natural plant extracts. Not only do these certain plant extracts add to the benefits of the skincare in the product, but it adds such a natural botanical YUMMY smell! I loved both of the products that you will read about below.

Snowberry is amazing and I definitely want to add more of their products to my skincare regimen. Just using a Facial Massage Oil and a Broad Spectrum SPF sun protectant/moisturizer has given my complexion such a bright and healthy look AND feel.

Soothing Facial Massage Oil

Does your skin need a refreshment course? Whether you have dry skin, sensitive skin, or just want silky smooth skin- I have an amazing facial oil that I want to tell you about!

Healthy skin depends on regular massaging. Massaging your face does it a ton of good.Not only does it renew your facial skin by boosting circulation, but it also helps to remove toxins and refreshes your cell structure.

Snowberry's Soothing Facial Massage Oil has an amazing blend of cherished plant oils and plant extracts that have anti-aging benefits. This is an amazing facial oil for every type of skin- EVEN sensitive skin. It is amazing at comforting the skin from irritation, redness, and inflammation.

Because this is made with plant oils and extracts, it is 100% all natural and organic product. When I got this in the mail- I was amazed at just how beautiful the bottle was. It’s simple design brings out the natural beauty of it.

It has a pimp action bottle that makes it easy for me to get just the right amount. This makes it easier to prolong the life of the product, because I’m not overusing it. It has a light blue transparent color and smells beautifully botanical.

I use this after exfoliating about twice a week. I use it in circular motion all over my face about 5 minutes after exfoliating. It has an extract of the German chamomile flower, which helps it soothe the redness of exfoliating the skin. It’s best to pat dry after you use it, so that it stays on the skin instead of being rubbed off onto the washcloth or towel.

I love how pure and silky this feels. I love it so much that I even use it as a daily moisturizer- . Not only does it soothe my skin, but it feels like a refreshment drink for my skin!. Smells amazing and feels like a pearly silk liquid that pampers my skin. My skin not only glows, but my skin basks in the glory of this amazing facial oil.

If you’re looking for an amazing stocking stuffer to give.. pick this! They’ll be thanking you all year long.

Snowberry Everyday SPF 15 Broad Spectrum

Medium Sun Protection

Snowberry Everyday SPF 15 Broad Spectrum Medium Sun Protection

Did you know that you aren’t protected from the sun even when you’re inside you own home or car? You may have thought so- but you will still get touched by the sun even through windows. The only rays that glass can block are UVB, the UVA rays still penetrate through.

This means that you don’t only need to wear a sunscreen at the beach, or when your outside for a jog. You need to accommodate a daily moisturizer with an SPF in it into your daily skincare regimen. This isn’t only going to keep your skin moisturized, but healthy as well.

I have kids, and having kids mean that I want to live for a VERY VERY long time. I want to see them grow up, go to college, start a family, and meet my grandkids. I can’t do that if I end up developing melanoma (a form of skin cancer).

A myth about skin cancer is that you have to have severe sun burns to get it. That definitely isn’t true! Just getting a deep bronzed tan can also cause skin cancer. This terrifies me! Kids can even develop it. So to do everything to protect both them and myself- I have taken extra precautions.

I added Snowberry Everyday SPF 15 Broad Spectrum Medium Sun Protection to my skincare regimen everyday. I also have started putting a sun protectant on the kids daily. It doesn’t have to be all over your skin- just the parts that are directly in the line of sun-rays!

This is amazing! It’s 100% natural, alcohol free and contains 18 percent non nano clear zinc oxide. This means that it is natural and goes on clearly. It goes on great under makeup. I don’t need very much and can put it on my arms when I wear a short sleeve shirt.

It is a very unique sunscreen though, because it contains plant extracts instead of chemicals. It also contains something called Galangal, which improves the ability of other sunscreens and is a natural anti-bacterial product which can clear up break outs and acne.

This is virtually UNSEEN when put on because it has such a light texture. I can’t detect a hint of it, even without a foundation on. So if you don’t wear makeup- this is an amazing product for you to protect your skin with!

I am happy to be able to put this on my face everyday, knowing that I am taking extra steps to live a longer life. I am also happy knowing that there are absolutely NO harmful ingredients in this at all. This protects against both UVA and UVB rays, so nothing can touch that beautiful skin of yours!

I am happy to say that I am giving both of these products 2 thumbs up. My skin is glowing, clear, and protected just from using these 2 products! My skin feels more hydrated, rejuvenated, and overall more healthy.

And Snowberry has packaged their products in such cute boxes. They are bright, colorful, and alluring. Each product has it’s own distinctive coloring on it’s box, which I find fun and makes me want to keep the boxes! Winking smile
