Snowberry Skin care

When I read about SnowBerry Skin care I knew I wanted to try it. It is skin care from New Zealand that was born of necessity. The founder and cosmetician Soraya Hendeis said she was simply unable to find skin care she felt she could trust.  I was so excited when I got a chance to review a few products for y'all.

Since she was unable to find the skin care she wanted for herself she set out to create something entirely new. She waned skin care that would make no compromises - not in functionality or safety, nor in the inclusion of optimum quantities of the finest bio active ingredients obtainable anywhere in the world. She was determined to create an uncomplicated system of natural beauty care that worked.

Based the website's recommendations for my oily/combination skin the chose the Nourishing Exfoliator, Instant Deep Cleanser, and Gentle Remineralising Toner. All of them have no lauryl sulphates, petrachemicals, propylene or butylene Glycals, valatile alcohols silicones, DEA or MEA ingredients. They are dermatologist tested and NOT tested on animals.

The Gentle Remineraliing toner is different from any toner I have used before. This one is a gel that lathers into a foam then you wash it off.  It lathers nicely and leave my face feeling clean with no sticky residue. I used it after my cleanser and just applied my moisturizer over it. It is a medium consistency with a light scent. I really like it and since it is a combination product that tones and cleanses at the same time.  Unless you have a heavy amount of make this product is all you need to cleanse your face so it's also a time saver!

The Instant Deep Cleanser, is you guessed it, a liquid facial soap.  It's a thin consistency and also has a light smell. It doesn't lather very much which is a little off putting to me. I associate lather with cleaning so in my mind my face is not getting clean. That is probably not true at all but that is my opinion. That being said, after use my face feel soft without any stickiness. It is recommended to use the Instant Deep Cleanser in the evening because it excels at removing makeup and the Remineralising toner in the morning.

The Nourishing Exfoliator is a very gentle exfoliating cream.   Of course being an exfoliator it has beads, the beads are very effect because you can feel them scrubbing yet they are gentle.  It works into a slight lather and the beds slowly dissolve the entire time it feels like it is moisturizing while exfoliating. It has a very pleasant light smell. I love this exfoliator it my favorite of the three.

There are lots of amazing products available on their site so go check them out. Like them on FaceBook for tips and new releases. Who knows maybe even a giveaway or two?

I received this products complimentary in exchange for an honest uncompensated review but the opinion is all mine. I only recommend products that I feel are good for my readers. 


  1. Very cute packaging. I would love to try the exfoliator!

  2. I have never heard of this brand but I love trying new skincare.

  3. Those looks like great products. I would love to try the deep cleanser.

  4. I hadn't heard of SnowBerry until now. I generally just skip skincare because I don't want to put toxic and/or ineffective things in/on my body. Although, I've been learning lately how important it is for me to take care of my skin *now*, and this looks like a product that would fit my requirements!
