*Disclaimer: These products were sent to me by Les Soins de Jacynthe for review. The information stated below is (as always) my own personal opinion. Review is of my first-time use of product)
Les Soins de Jacynthe is a skin care line out of Quebec, Canada. Founded by Jacynthe René, a former actress and producer who now owns her own magazine and has been featured in many publications. She has also published three books in only four years that revolve around health and wellbeing. She is an avid supporter of a greener lifestyle and her work definitely shows it. You can view her online magazine here, where you will find advice about anything from electromagnetic pollution in our homes, to natural remedies for common ailments, to delicious recipes for maintaining your skins radiance!
I was sent three products from Les Soins de Jacynthe (cleansing oil, serum, plus the rose water) and I have to say as soon as I opened the box, I was delighted to see such clean and cute packaging. (The mailing box even had a sticker on it that said “sent with love from Jacynthe – in French). I felt as if I had received something from a classy Parisian apothecary. The bottles are dark brown and two of them come as tinctures. The rose water came as a spray. The labels are simple yet elegant with a hand-made, one of a kind feel to them. One of the main reasons I was attracted to review this brand was due to the way they pride themselves as being 100% natural with active ingredients, they do not contain any GMO’s, they do not contain any chemicals, and they are completely cruelty-free, not tested on animals. This is exactly what you want for happy skin!
1. Huile nettoyante de Jacynthe (Cleansing oil)
Ingredients: jojoba and apricot oils, sea buckthorn CO2, bourbon, geranium rosa, ylang ylang and sandalwood oils.
Ok guys, this cleansing oil is seriously amazing. As soon as I opened it I was greeted with such a delicious smell. I mean…it’s got sandalwood and bourbon in it. Bourbon. I put a dropper full of the oil into the palm of my hand and began massaging it onto my skin. It is meant to be a makeup remover and cleanser, but I was tempted to leave it on my skin as it felt so good. I felt so relaxed with the combination of the scent and the massaging that I actually felt like I was getting a decadent facial in my own home. I would highly recommend this product, and I’m looking forward to using it more!
2. Eau florale de Rose (Rosewater)
Ingredients: 100% rose water.
I have to be honest and say that rosewater has never been my thing. The scent for some reason usually gives me a headache and I often find it overwhelming. That being said, I was still intrigued to try out Jacynthe’s rosewater. I was pleasantly surprised when misting it onto my face. It felt really refreshing, and the rosewater fragrance didn’t feel overwhelming at all…it dissipated and didn’t linger aggressively like other waters/fragrances. This is a beautiful refresher/toner after cleansing your face!
3. Le Sérum de Jacynthe (Serum)
Ingredients: evening primrose oil, borage, buckthorn & Rosehip CO2 extracts, sandalwood, rose, natural vitamin E and rosemary oleoresin.
This is the third step in the system, the potent serum. Containing ingredients such as buckthorn and vitamin E, I knew it would have great benefits for the skin. I used a couple drops out of the tincture and gently applied it to my skin. I waited a few moments, and added a little bit more and my skin was left feeling nourished and hydrated.
As I unwind before bed...the aroma from these products are left lingering slightly on my skin and it is the perfect way to relax. So nice!
Overall Verdict: I definitely noticed how soft my skin felt after using all three products. I absolutely love that they are all 100% natural ingredients and are Canadian made. My favorite out of them all has got to be the Cleansing oil, which I seriously cannot wait to try again. I will continue to use these products and give an update in about a month!
