Green is one of my very favorite colors. Green also happens to be the way I try to live my life. Green is also a moniker for a great company named Verdant. I was so fortunate to be able to try an array of products from Verdant Skincare and I’m pleased to be able to share my experience with my beautiful readers today.
Verdant is a really cool company. They are a female-owned and family operated company specializing in natural skin care products. They make all of their products by hand in small batches using nothing but they best, food quality ingredients like botanicals, essential oils, as well as natural butters and vegetable and nut oils. Most of their products are even vegan for those of you against any sort of animal ingredients.
They are Earth-friendly, plant based, and formulated without any of the yucky stuff like chemical preservatives or other unmentionables. They use clay and botanicals to color their soaps and they wrap each and every bar of soap in the most gorgeous 100% post consumer recycled paper. They’re seriously so pretty! Now on to the product reviews.
The company was so kind and sent me many different products to try but let’s start with my favorites – the soaps! I love soap and I really love Verdant’s soap! The Vanilla Lavender soap is absolutely wonderful. It smells better than any other lavender product I have ever smelled before and it leaves my skin feeling soft, clean, and lovely. It has a super-charged ingredient list starring olive, coconut and castor oils, as well as mango and shea butters, alongside essential oils. It even has ground lavender buds in it for exfoliation purposes. It’s really great for night time use since lavender is such a relaxing scent. I love this soap!
I also love the Tea Tree and Mint Facial Bar. Tea Tree is really great for those with oily, acne-prone skin since it is natural antiseptic. In addition to tea tree oil this soap also has olive oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, castor oil, essential oils, spearmint, and bentonite clay. The clay is really helpful when it comes to keeping oil in check. Not only is this a great facial cleanser, it’s also perfect for all over body use. I have a bit of a problem in the summer with blemishes on my back and this bar has really kept them at bay. And while most tea tree based products smell strong and harsh, this soap has a very fresh, light, clean scent that I really enjoy.
My next favorite is definitely the Jasmine Rose Body Oil. I have to be honest, I’m not a floral kind of girl, but this is not overpowering or strong at all. It’s got a really great scent that is uplifting and mood boosting for me, as well as the others in my household. Used as a moisturizer of sorts it leaves the skin feeling silky smooth and nicely fragrant. It can also be used as a bath oil, just put a few drops into a warm bath tub for a relaxing soak.
Ever feel like you need an island getaway during a long day at work? Well, Verdant makes a lip balm that smells exactly like a pina-colada on a beach somewhere. They have other scents and flavors too, but the pina-colada one is mouthwatering. It’s also a really nice formula, which leaves the lips with a nice (but not intense) shine and also adds moisture and hydration. It’s very soft and easy to apply.
I also got to try samples of their facial care products which include the Rooibos Tea Cream Cleanser, Organic Peppermint Toner, and Intensive Facial Toner. The cleanser has a thinner, lotion-type consistency that spreads easily and rinses off cleanly. It smells excellent and makes my skin feel clean and supple without a tight feeling. The peppermint toner is really refreshing and delightful to use after cleansing. It leaves my face feeling cool, and if you keep it in the fridge during the summer it would be a perfect treat for your skin. Lastly is the serum which is the cherry on top of the facial sundae. It sinks into the skin and gives a nice fresh feeling.
