Down The Garden Path

Another month, another natural skincare brand – I’m SO happy I’ve gotten to share such wonderful companies with you guys. In fact, Sigrid Natural Skin Care, today’s featured brand, actually got in touch with me because they saw my post on Jordan River Soapworks. As for Sigrid, they are a boutique skin care brand based out of the Ottawa Valley. Their simple and pure products infuse local herbs, flowers and essential oils into healing oils and beeswax for a beautifying, body-loving line-up of goods. Today, I’ve picked out five favourites for your perusal – but ohmigosh kids, I could spend hours sampling and perusing their line.

Star Bright Intensive Eye CreamStar Bright Intensive Eye Cream – $30
First up, a product I’ve been using religiously since it came into my life. If you’re wondering whether you need an eye cream, keep in mind that the skin around your eyes is unlike any other part of your body. It’s thinner, more sensitive, and has fewer oil and water glands, so it needs more moisturization. Plus, a good eye cream can help prevent and treat wrinkles. Of course, you probably don’t want a ton of chemicals in an area that’s highly porous – so a natural product like Sigrid’s Star Bright Intensive Eye Cream is just the ticket. Featuring comfrey, chamomile and carrot seed oil to reduce puffiness and hydrate your sensitive skin, this is a must-have for any woman’s morning and bedtime skincare regime.

Sigrid Natural Skin Care Body ButtersBody Butters – $21 each
Of all the natural care lines I’ve tried, Sigrid has best nailed the ‘body butter’ texture. Their lush lotions go on like a dream and holy are they ever fragrant – unlike most brands out there, expect to be reveling in the scent of your chosen product all day long, to the point where you can avoid spritzing on perfume. Of course, if you need a scent-free option, they’ve got just that. Also of note is their Mint Chocolate Foot Butter, which retails for the same price but is meant especially for aching, sore feet. The sweet chocolate notes are a nice complement to the traditional minty tingle that’s typical of foot creams.

100 Mile Healing Salve100-Mile Healing Salve – $17
How cool is this? For those localvores out there, invest in this all-purpose healing salve that’s made exclusively with ingredients that are grown, harvested, or produced within 100 miles of Toronto. What does a healing salve do you ask? This multi-tasking remedy is perfect for nursing skin back to health; whether you’re dealing with a nasty sunburn or minor irritations, scrapes, or rashes, the lush oils and wax within will have your skin singing again in no time.

Sigrid Naturals PerfumesFragrances – $18 – $28
Some people tend to be really sensitive to some of the synthetic ingredients in store-brand perfumes. If you fall in that category, an all-natural perfume still packs a heady punch (and lasts just as long, if not longer). Sigrid has three options that are easy to toss into your purse and feature potent essential oils for fresh, fragrant blends. Perfume is always a perfect choice for a friend’s birthday, or even in bridesmaid goodie bags so your gals smell sparkling fresh all day long.

Wild Mane Hair OIlWild Mane Hair Oil – $26
We put an awful lot of effort into preserving and primping something that is, essentially, dead. Of course, a glossy head of hair is an instant ticket to compliments and confidence, so why not give this intensive oil treatment a whirl? Meant for dry and damaged locks, all you have to do is rub a teaspoon of oil into your mane three times a week, let it soak into your tresses, rinse, and watch as your hair looks shinier, feels stronger, and is altogether softer. It’s a departure from any other natural beauty line I’ve spent a lot of time looking at – but your scalp deserves some tender lovin’ just as much as your skin kids.

Honestly, there are a ton of unique finds in the Sigrid Naturals line-up, and I’m so psyched they reached out to me so I could share their awesome brand with you! If you’re interested in giving their products a try, a good number of shops in Ontario have started carrying their line. Finally, some fun news!
