New Live Clean Vanilla Oatmeal Soothing Body Wash & Liquid Hand Soap

Live Clean is by far my fave green drugstore brand. All of their products are plant derived and made with certified organic botanicals.
And I keep telling you this but let’s do it again haha! Every single Live Clean product is:
-SLS and sulfate free
-petroleum free
-paraben free, DEA free
-silicone free, dye free
-phthalate free, and phosphate free

Oh, and they are completely vegan, with no animal products or animal by-products used in the formulations. Why would you use anything else?

New Live Clean Vanilla Oatmeal Soothing Body Wash & Liquid Hand Soap contain oatmeal of course, which everyone knows is soothing and healing. I don’t know about you, but my skin starts to get itchy in the cool fall weather, so my dry limbs just LOVE this new body wash and hand soap. The oatmeal is blended with Vitamin E, Panthenol, and Certified Organic Botanicals of Vanilla and Chamomile to soothe, heal, and moisturize dry skin. And Live Clean’s Hand Soaps are staples in our house because they never dry hands out. And now that cold and flu season is heading our way, having this one with oatmeal is perfect for frequent hand washing/germ avoiding!

Oh, and the scent! New Live Clean Vanilla Oatmeal Soothing Body Wash & Liquid Hand Soap smell so GOOD…a warm, comfy vanilla that’s so very fall appropriate.

REALLY GOOD natural skin care that actually WORKS is hard to come by. I never really notice much of a difference when using them to tell you the truth, which is upsetting because I’d love to use more natural products.

But I’ve finally found something that actually does work!! Meet the new and CANADIAN made MaxEffects Naturals Facial Care System:

MaxEffects Naturals Facial Care System is made of Natural and Organic Products; the line averages 99.7% natural or naturally derived and 88.35% of plant material is organic. That’s some HIGH RATIOS I tell you, and kudos to Taiga MaxEffects for being transparent about it! They only use the highest quality of botanical ingredients that provide skin barrier repair, intensive moisturizing,skin balancing and sebum control, and also reduce the visible signs of ageing.
The entire line is based off of two key ingredients and each product contains them:

Cucumber extract: High in antioxidants and Vitamin C it eliminates the signs of dullness, soothes and cools skin that irritated
Cornflower Extract: has skin conditioning properties that’s known to sooth and calm and is perfect for sensitive skin
The products include other interesting ingredients like Jojoba Oil, Watermelon Extract, Apple Fruit Extract, Lentil, Sweet Almond while also being gluten-free, animal by-product free, petroleum free, paraben free and artificial fragrance free. All of the products feature one-handed pump top on the liquids and airless pumps on the creams to retain product efficacy. Hear that high end skincare lines? AIRLESS pumps on the bottles. No big, open jars to have to dip your fingers into. And honestly, why pay all that money when you know that every single time you open that jar of face cream, you’re losing efficacy? With MaxEffects, you know your products will ALWAYS work for you.

First up, the MaxEffects Botanical Foaming Facial Cleanser($18.99) 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. I like it a lot and use it with my Clarisonic and it works well at removing my makeup. My skin doesn’t feel tight after cleansing, and in fact is less dry since I’ve been using it. The MaxEffects Botanical Facial Toner($18.99 CDN) contains watermelon, apple, lentil and fruit extracts to tone and brighten your face, while also closing pores. It’s free from any alcohols which is what I look for in a toner. I really like it a lot, and find it really soothing and not drying at all.

The MaxEffects Botanical Intensive Serum($23.99) is enriched with Fig Fruit Extract, and Grape Seed Oil, and helps diminish the signs of ageing by strengthening the skin’s natural barrier. It’s really hydrating for a serum and somedays I feel that’s all I need before applying my makeup. I do think m y skin is looking clearer and brighter since I’ve been testing it out.

On days I feel like I need more moisture, I’ll use the Botanical Daily Facial Moisturizer($18.99 CDN). It’s enriched with natural oils like Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Coconut Oil. It’s super hydrating and soothing at the same time and leaves skin really soft, and not greasy at all.

The MaxEffects Botanical Intensive Night Moisturizer($23.99)is my favourite night treatment that I’ve come across in a long time! It contains Olive Leaf Extract and Algae Extract to help revitalize your skin and reveal more glowing skin. It absorbs quickly which I like and it hasn’t broken me out. Actually, none of the products have broken me out so that’s a good sign! I wake up with bright, glowy skin every morning and I love it.

Often enough a lot of natural skin care breaks me out, but MaxEffects Naturals hasn’t. Because each product contains Cucumber and Cornflower Extracts, the products are soothing while providing anti-ageing benefits at the same time, so it’s perfect for even sensitive skin like mine. I love the subtle cucumber scent in each product as well. It’s refreshing to me!

You can order directly from, and today they’re actually having a Mother’s Day Special so take a look! I know I’m going to order some more of the MaxEffects 2-in-1 Makeup Remover that I reviewed a couple of months ago. It works BETTER than Bioderma or any other makeup remover I’ve tried. AND they also have a Botanical BB Cream that I want to try as well!

Do you use natural skin care? Are you trying to go more natural with all of your facial products as well?
