As the seasons change, so does skin. Saison’s smart skincare products treat and revitalize skin as it responds to environmental conditions throughout the year.
Saison is a natural skincare line that is made by hand in small batches. All products are free of petrochemicals, parabens, silicones, phthalates, sulfates, glycols, PEGs, DEA, MEA, TEA, triclosan or synthetic fragrances, colors and dyes.
Saison believes that if it didn’t come from nature, it shouldn’t go into our bodies.
Saison has developed an exceptional moisturizing duo for mature skin—or for any skin affected by harsh winter weather. Instead of your typical toner-lotion combination, Saison pairs a moisture-locking Botanical Lotion Spray with a smoothing Winter Moisturizer.
These products utilize antioxidant-rich organic ingredients such as meadow foam, pomegranate and rosehip to help repair and fortify skin.
Winter Botanical Lotion Spray
The Winter Botanical Lotion Spray helps to improve skin tone and treat early signs of aging.
It’s not exactly a toner; toners exist to re-balance skin’s pH levels after cleansing. Instead, the Botanical Lotion Spray maximizes skin’s moisture levels before moisturizer is applied. When using the Lotion Spray and Moisturizer together, nutrients and moisture are locked in, and skin is protected.
Winter Botanical Lotion Spray ingredients: organic lavender water, aloe water, organic peppermint water, organic holy basil water, organic rose water, organic vegetable glycerin, sweet potato alcohol, grapefruit seed extract, fragrance made of pure essential oils (including juniper + bergamot).

The Botanical Lotion Spray has a high concentration of beneficial botanical extracts. Simply mist it over your face after cleansing and before moisturizing.
The Winter Botanical Lotion Spray is $39 for a 1.7oz bottle. Purchase it here.
The Winter Moisturizer is perfectly modern and luxurious. It absorbs quickly, leaving skin dewy and rejuvenated. It’s slightly more lightweight than most creams created for mature skin. And the scent alone deserves its own accolades: the spicy juniper notes paired with bergamot smell unlike anything I’ve tried before.
Winter Moisturizer ingredients: aloe water, organic holy basil water, organic lavender water, organic peppermint water, organic rose water, organic vegetable glycerin, ascorbic acid, vegetable emulsifying wax, stearic acid, organic green tea oil, organic jojoba oil, meadowfoam seed oil, organic pomegranate seed oil, organic rosehip seed oil, wheat germ oil, grapefruit seed extract, organic rosemary extract, tocopherol, fragrance made from pure essential oils (including juniper + bergamot), potassium sorbate.
Some of my absolute favorite skincare ingredients are present in the Winter Moisturizer, namely green tea oil, jojoba oil, meadowfoam seed oil, rosehip seed oil and wheat germ oil. These are some of the most nourishing and regenerative oils available, and used to great effect in this formulation.
Green tea oil contains a type of tannin called catechin which helps protect skin from UV damage. It is rich in antioxidants and nutrients for enhanced skin health. Green tea oil is also useful in minimizing skin irritation.
Jojoba oil, another ingredient in the Winter Moisturizer, closely resembles skin’s own sebum, making it an effective skin-balancing oil. It’s especially effective at helping mature skin look its best.
Although at 32 I don’t necessarily fit in the “mature” skin category, in harsh winter weather my skin loves this moisturizer! It’s not heavy or greasy, but adds a level of season-appropriate protection.
Winter Moisturizer is $54 for a 1.7oz pump bottle. Purchase it here.
