I’ve been a fan of Saison’s fresh-made skincare for some time. The Botanical Lotion Spray is a moisturizing mist that sits lightly on the skin, and the Moisturizer is a fragrant skin protectant which not only seals in moisture but employs high-quality botanicals to help skin stay in balance.
A Season for Every Skin Type
Saison’s “Spring” line is formulated for normal skin. The products are light and mild, full of antioxidant-rich organic ingredients such as green tea, rose geranium and apricot.
Inside the Ingredients
Overall, both products in this duo are fragrant and lightweight, full of skin-loving nutrients.
Spring Botanical Lotion Spray Ingredients: aloe water, organic basil water, organic cucumber water, organic lavender water, organic lemon balm water, organic rose geranium water, organic vegetable glycerin, sweet potato alcohol, grapefruit seed extract, fragrance made from pure essential oils.
|Extremely Safe||Reasonably Safe||Proceed with Caution||Insufficient Data|
I love that the little bit of alcohol used in this formulation is from sweet potato, making it nightshade-free. Little details like this mean the world to discerning consumers!
Spring Moisturizer Ingredients: aloe water, organic basil water, organic cucumber water, organic lavender water, organic lemon balm water, organic rose geranium water, organic vegetable glycerin, ascorbic acid, emulsifying wax, stearic acid, organic apricot kernel oil, organic green tea oil, organic evening primrose oil, organic jojoba oil, meadowfoam seed oil, grapefruit seed extract, organic rosemary extract, tocopherol, fragrance made from pure essential oils, potassium sorbate.
If you are particularly sensitive to fragrance, be aware that these Spring Moisturizing products have a distinctive aroma. It’s a lovely smell, in my opinion, and is made of safe, natural ingredients, but some folks prefer neutral-scented skincare…. if you’re one of those people, this moisturizing duo may not be for you!
How to Use
The Spring Botanical Lotion Spray should be misted over the face after cleansing. It can also be used throughout the day to maintain moisture levels in the face, or to set mineral makeup.
Apply the Moisturizer onto a clean face (or over the Spring Botanical Lotion Spray) and gently massage until absorbed.
Personally, I prefer using these two products together. In the past, I omitted mists and toners from my skincare routine, thinking they were superfluous. But I’ve since wised up and learned that moisturizers—whether lotions, creams or oils—work better when coupled with a high-quality mist.
Fresh & Made by Hand
Saison Beauty makes products which are delicate and feminine, handmade with love by an artisan. And their unique seasonal organization isn’t a carbon copy of the competition.
Saison’s products should be used within three months. That’s how you know their “fresh” claim isn’t just a marketing slogan, but an honest advantage. It’s fresh food for the skin!
