Refresh Botanicals Skincare

Refresh Botanicals  uses the highest quality of botanical ingredients. The entire line is based off of two key ingredients and each product in the line contains them. Cucumber extract is the first one, and it’s high in antioxidants and Vitamin C. It eliminates the signs of dullness, soothes and cools skin that is irritated.
Cornflower Extract soothes and calms, and is perfect for sensitive skin as well. The products also include other effective skin care ingredients like Jojoba Oil, Watermelon Extract, Apple Fruit Extract, Lentil, Sweet Almond to moisturize and protect the skin barrier. All products are gluten-free, animal by-product free, petroleum free, paraben free and artificial fragrance free. Each bottle features a one-handed pump top on the liquids and airless pumps on the creams to retain product efficacy. RIGHT? Second time today a Canadian, Organic skincare line has an airless delivery system. HEAR THAT Chanel? And Dior? If they can do it, you know you can too…

Refresh Botanicals

I can’t get enough of the beautiful new packaging! It’s so clean and bright! And happy! I love it.

Refresh Botanicals Foaming Facial Cleanser is made for all skin types and is a really gentle cleanser that balances your skin. It actually contains coconut oil which pulls and binds to toxins and dirt without stripping moisture. It doesn’t foam up a lot and feels slippery in texture, and it does have a slight cucumber scent which I enjoy. It’s refreshing and leaves my skin clean! Marky has super sensitive skin, and this is her favourite cleanser. I’ll have to make sure I send some to her in California!

Refresh Botanicals Facial Toner contains watermelon, apple, lentil and fruit extracts to tone and brighten your face, while also closing up pores. It’s free from any alcohols which is what I look for in a toner. I find it really soothing and not drying at all. This is one of my favourite toners I’ve ever tried.

Refresh Botanicals Daily Facial Moisturizer is enriched with natural oils like Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Coconut Oil. It’s super hydrating and soothing at the same time. It makes a great base for makeup too!

Refresh Botanicals BB Cream improves your skin tone, hydrates, and protects your skin from premature aging. It’s a thicker BB Cream that gives a kiss of colour to your face and evens out skin tone. If you have a lot of issues and spots, you’ll need a concealer as well which is true for most BB Creams anyways. It’s an option for those looking for something more natural to use. I can’t think of another mostly natural/organic BB Cream in the Canadian market right now, except for this one!

Refresh Botanicals Eye + Face Makeup Remover and Night Restore Complex

Refresh Botanicals Eye + Face Makeup Remover is STILL the most awesome 2-in-1 makeup remover I’ve ever met. EVER. It’s my Holy Grail makeup remover. Hands down beats ALL micellar cleansers on the market in my opinion. Cucumber extract lifts dead skin and removes makeup without any irritation, plus it’s cooling and calms the skin. The cornflower water gets rid of dull skin and helps fight eye and skin irritation too. And it can also help lessen the appearance of dark circles and age spots as well! It takes off ALL of my makeup, eye makeup, and even waterproof makeup too. And it never stings or irritates my face or my eyes. I can’t LIVE without this stuff! And the press down pump delivery system? Love it. No wasting of product ever!

Refresh Botanicals Night Restore Complex contains Olive Leaf Extract and Algae Extract to help revitalize your skin and reveal more glowing skin. If you want to wake up to glowing, healthy, smooth skin every morning, then you gotta try it.

If you’re looking for a great, Canadian Natural and Organic Skincare line, then you gotta try Refresh Botanicals. It’s my favourite! You can order them online at, or like I said at the beginning-you can now find them at over 120 stores across Canada!

I love that Canada has so many great organic and natural skincare options now. This one is near and dear to my heart, as I’ve been using it ever since it came on the scene. It makes me extremely happy that they are growing and doing so well! Congrats Refresh Botanicals! Now how’s about a facial mask? I’d LOVE one from you! 😀

*products sent by the lovely PR for review, thoughts are mine as always! 😀

  • I love when brands get packaging right – makes a good product even better!

  • Hi Traaaaaacyyyy–wootwoot!!! 😀 😀 haha! This line sounds great but most of the products sound too rich for my skin :/ (especially that moisturizer….coconut oil + jojoba AND sweet almond?? Becca skin no likey 🙁 ) BUT I am super intrigued about that micellar water now. I love a good cleansing water and when I hear HG, my ears perk up! 😛

    • Hahaha it might be a bit too rich for you, although I have breakout prone skin myself and nothing has ever caused me trouble! But that micellar water is freakin’ awesome. I love it a LOT!

  • That toner sounds great. My current toner is almost empty and I can’t decide what to buy next. Too bad this brand isn’t available here.

  • I just received a whole bunch of this stuff, including the eye makeup remover only in the MaxEffects packaging. It is my fave too!!!

  • YEEES @ airless pump packaging! So important, especially with natural ingredients! These all sound so good. I hope they make their way to PEI soon!
