This rich but non-greasy cream is one of our staff favourites! It is a deeply moisturizing cream that is extremely reparative and features super-hydrating ingredients that will delight dry, sensitive, and/or eczema-prone skin types.
Calendula belongs to the same family as Arnica and is traditionally used in European countries to repair slow-to-heal wounds, mild burns, and eczema-prone dry skin.
Trehalose is a naturally-occurring saccharide that presents a strong defense against the harshest climate conditions, making this an especially great cream for the winter. It also helps protect the skin's fibroblast from dehydration by replacing water in the tissue, effectively retaining the natural structure of the skin.
Xylitylgucoside, Anhydoxylitol and Xyltol (xax) is a vegetable-based, sugar-derived complex that helps moisturize and restructure while improving overall skin barrier function.
Borage Seed Oil is a rich source of gamma-linolenic acid that increases lipid protection and is known for its soothing, anti-inflammatory, and skin-conditioning properties.
100% Vegan, Nut Free + Gluten Free.

I use this face cream when I need a bit more hydration (winter months) or in the evening. I love the light lavender scent so I sometimes mix a little bit of this moisturizer with the holistic vanity brightening hyaluronic lotion
This cream has been incredible for all of Canada's changing seasons. Paired with an oil this cream has absolutely changed my skin and kept my face hydrated whether it is Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter
I have been using this cream for over 2 years now, and I love it. My skin is dry and this does a great job of moisturizing, especially in harsh Canadian winters.
My husband and sister both have very sensitive skin and I have converted both of them to using this cream exclusively - it's gentle, and does not aggravate their sensitive skin!
It is pricey, but I find that (similar to what others have said in their reviews), a little goes a long way. Will continue to buy this for sure.
Great cream for winter months.
Protects mature rosacea prone skin.
A little goes a long way.
I use Beautiful Skin cream in the warmer months.
I’ve always used Black Mud but it’s no longer available so I tried this one. It’s above my budget so I was hoping for more. It’s just ok and still leaves some areas of my face dry.
