I’ve been trying to transition to more natural products in my skincare routine. While I doubt I’ll ever go 100% natural in my beauty routine, especially when it comes to makeup, I do want to eliminate as many harmful chemicals as I can in the products I use in my skincare and body care.
I admit I’ve been a bit reluctant to make the change. At 42 I am very diligent about my anti-aging skincare routine. I’ve always had dry skin and that makes me more prone to wrinkles and loss of elasticity and firmness. It’s important to me that the products I use not only be gentle but also be EFFECTIVE.
That is why I was so excited to be introduced to Vital Facecare. Vital Facecare has a refined and curated collection of skincare products with ingredients that are organically certified and naturally derived AND the products focus on the active botanicals that are powerful and effective enough to address the signs of aging. I don’t feel like I’m having to trade efficacy for naturalness. Oh, and they are also a Canadian brand! But don’t worry my US friends. They are available to you as well.
With Vital Facecare I Don’t Have to Sacrifice Results for Natural and Organic Ingredients
Vital Facecare not only loads their products full of incredible actives and ingredients but they package their products responsibly to ensure the active ingredients maintain their effectiveness. All creams and gels are housed in airless pump containers to preserve the ingredients. I don’t know about you, but it drives me nuts when a face cream includes so many wonderful ingredients (and often a hefty price tag) and then is packaged in jar packaging that results in its effectiveness degrading as soon as you begin using it. With Vital Facecare I know my products are well protected.
I also love the colorful packaging because it’s easy to reach for the product you’re looking for. You don’t have to worry about reading the labels to select what you want because each product is packaged in a different bold and beautiful color. I think this will be so helpful for those who are farsighted because you’re obviously not wearing your reading glasses when you are washing your face and applying your skincare!
