Pure & Simple


I’ve only touched on Canadian skincare brand Consonant once before, and it’s about time I talk a little more about this fantastic Toronto-based retailer again as we creep up to the holidays. As much as I love all the festive holiday goodies in other body care stores, I recognize that not everyone wants to smell like baked goods, and that many people’s skin has an intolerance to certain processes or even to fragrance. Consonant allows you to still tap into the very giftable body care world without worrying about such things – their goods are 100% natural, and many of them contain certified organic ingredients. No harshness. No irritation. The result? Perfect gift sets for everyone from your friend’s baby to your pal battling eczema to your grandma – and the guys on your list too. And with that, my top 5 gift ideas from Consonant’s online boutique (but really, check out their full list of locations to experience the goodness firsthand).

Consonant Healthy Skin Detox for Body

Healthy Skin Detox For Body Kit – $99
I call this the Consonant starter kit, because it’s a great introduction to what their products can do for you at an affordable entry price point. With 99.4% natural ingredients and three gender-neutral fragrance (or lack thereof) options – classic Pure Unscented, uplifting Citrus Bergamot, and zesty Spearmint and Sage – you’ll score a foaming face wash, body lotion, and body wash all housed in this neat little ready-to-wrap kit. Makes a great choice for your sister-in-law, or as a really nice houseguest gift when you crash at the in-laws for the holidays.

 

Consonant 20% Clay Exfoliating Cleansing Bar

Consonant 20% Clay Exfoliating Cleansing Bar – $18
Stocking stuffer alert! This brick of soap is made up of 20% Manicouagan Clay from Quebec to give you an instant spa experience that gently exfoliates dead skin on your body and face. The clay is an all-natural exfoliant that’s gentle enough to use on your body every day, and your face a couple of times a week, for smoother, softer skin that’s softly scrubbed and buffed with every use of this clever bar. I also dig it as an offbeat choice for that quirky aunt or even for your boyfriend. Also worth checking out is the Help Some-Body soap ($12), with 100% of the sales price going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Support Fund.

Consonant Hydrextreme

HydrExtreme – $72 – $149
This award-winning, unscented serum was originally created to assist a cancer patient dealing with extremely dry, cracked skin. Her results were so extraordinary, Consonant literally bottled up that magic and is selling it to the masses with astounding results. In one study, after just one week’s use, 100% of participants saw improved hydration, while 90% saw a noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Give your wife this little miracle in a bottle for those crow’s feet she complains about – she’ll love it!

Consonant Dry Brushes

Dry Brushes – $15 – $32
One of the things I love about the Consonant philosophy is not all body care comes down to lotions and potions. A big part of it is what you use to cleanse and exfoliate, hence why they have a line of clothes, poufs, and brushes – including these super-exfoliating jute and sisal dry brushes. Get rid of dry skin, stimulate circulation, banish toxins, and reduce the appearance of cellulite with either a light or medium firmness. If you want to really take care of ingrown hairs in sensitive areas, the Bikini / Beard brush is just the ticket (and works for guys too, obviously). The perfect complement to any of Consonant’s body lotions – you need to moisturize after sloughing off that dead skin!

Consonant Healthy Skin Detox for Face

Healthy Skin Detox For Face Kit – $99
We already highlighted the body gift set, so obviously I’ve got to talk about the face one. This all-in-one kit promises healthier, softer skin from the very first use, thanks to the all-natural formulas housed inside. Give the gift of a youthful, refreshed glow with the four goodies packed inside, designed to take you through all portions of your daily skincare routine: face cream, face wash, organic eye cream, and lip cream. Best of all, you can actually customize the kit with certain products if you’ve got really dry skin, or you need some extra firming help around your eyes. A perfect pick for mom.
