Pure and simple ingredients from Mother Nature
Your everyday skin care routine should come from pure and simple ingredients from Mother Nature, yet we’re left buying chemical induced products filled with artificial fragrances, parabens and colour dyes. These often do more damage to our sensitive skin then good, yet we continue to buy them in fear of trying something new or that all natural products will cost too much. Our skin also requires skincare products that help us face our daily challenges, but most brands don’t have the proper formulas to help prevent against future sun damage, premature aging or help control our natural ph balance. If you’re finally ready to take the next step in healthier, radiant and glowing skin this summer, look no further than Refresh Botanicals. It not only helps to relieve, restore and revitalize your skin with botanical extracts and oils, it helps you look as good as you feel on the inside in a few simple steps.
Not only is Refresh Botanicals all natural, its Canadian made and budget friendly. The collection is based around a proprietary blend of cucumber extract, which is high in antioxidants and vitamin C and cornflower water, which is both soothing and calming on the skin. Each of their 7 products are formulated without parabens, gluten, petroleum by-products, animal by-products, artificial oils or fragrances, making each product ideal for those with sensitive skin. The collection features 7 products, all of which are under $25 each, allowing you to get a perfectly fresh, clean skin without breaking the bank.
Refresh Botanicals Foaming Facial Cleanser will not only help to cleanse the skin, but will gently soothe and revitalize the skin thanks to its cucumber and cornflower water formula. It instantly lifts away impurities, dirt, oil and makeup thanks to its coconut oil infused formula that never leaves the skin feeling dehydrated, tight or uncomfortable.
Refresh Botanicals Foaming Facial Cleanser has a lightweight, thin, almost jelly-like texture that creates a decent amount of lather to mildly wash away the day. Its gentle foam thoroughly cleanses the skin without stripping it of its natural oil, leaving it feeling tight or dry afterwards. Although it isn’t strong enough to cleanse full-coverage foundation or water-proof mascara (this is where the Eye & Face Makeup Removal will come in handy), it does a wonderful job at removing daily grime. It retails for $18.99 for 150ml.
Refresh Botanicals Eye & Face Makeup Removal will help to effectively remove both eye and face makeup in one easy step. It too is formulated with cucumber extract and cornflower water to help soothe and moisturize the skin while providing antioxidant protection and requires no rinsing.
Refresh Botanicals Eye & Face Makeup Removal may just be my favourite makeup removal yet? It has the power to remove even the toughest waterproof and long wearing makeup, think Benefit They’re Real Mascara and Kat Von D liquid foundation, but gentle enough not to sting or irritate my delicate eye areas like other formulas I’ve tried in the past. I love that it requires no rinsing, yet leaves my skin silky smooth without a nasty or greasy residue or film. It really does remove all traces of makeup, without pulling or rubbing too hard. It retails for $18.99 for 200ml.
Refresh Botanicals Facial Toner will help to instantly, and naturally, restore skin’s pH balance, while leaving skin feeling clean and refreshed.

Refresh Botanicals Facial Toner comes in a handy pump style bottle, ensuring you will never waste product. Simply press a cotton pad once onto the pump and then gently wipe over your entire face and neck. You’ll be amazed at how much dirt, oil and makeup is still left on your face after cleansing. This removes all traces and helps prep the skin for your next step. It leaves skin feeling fresh and clean, without feeling tight or dry and allows for maximum hydration from your moisturizer and serum. It retails for $18.99 for 200ml.

Refresh Botanicals BB Cream has a slightly creamy texture than other BB creams I’ve tried in the past, which does a wonderful job at evening out my skin tone, while providing a sheer wash of colour to the skin.
