The beloved Graydon Skincare.
With the May promotion happening right now until the end of May (buy ANY 2 products and receive a FREE 10ml Fullmoon Serum), I thought I would take advantage and dive a little deeper into why I love the brand. Graydon Skincare holds a very special place in my heart. It was the first natural skincare line that I had tried when making the transition and it was the first line that I had brought into the shop upon opening. What I love most about Graydon is their products deliver results and their transparency in sourcing ingredients, two very important steps to the Urban Daisy approval process.
You, loves know how important it is to me that when ingredients are being used, that they are being sourced in a sustainable manner. Fun little fact: Graydon Skincare sources all of their ingredients from Canadian Provinces. For example the kale oil and meadowfoam are sourced right here in Prince Edward Island. The wild carrot oil, maple sap and cranberry bogs are sourced from Quebec. In Manitoba, the hemp seed is produced. In BC the glacial clay is sourced and in Fraser Valley the raspberry, blueberry and broccoli seed oil are sourced. These ingredients are not common or easy to find, but they lend a hand in creating spectacular product quality and functionality. See the map below for a little overview of where ingredients are being sourced.
Graydon Skincare sources ingredients that can be linked back to Canadian growers, manufactures and distributors, which in return helps grow our local economy. Isn't this cool? Graydon Skincare is not only clean, green skincare, they are supporting Canadian wide farmers to produce safe, clean cosmetics for you and I.
Let's dive into the products and their deets!
Beginning with the cleanser, Face Foam.
Face Foam is a gorgeous, luscious foaming cleanser that is hydrating not stripping. We are so accustom to foaming cleansers leaving our skin tight and dry but this all ends here with the Blue Majik Face Foam.
Skin Type: For all skin types │Especially those with sensitive skin
Product Deets: Dermatologist tested, hypo-allergenic, non-irritating. This gentle, oil free unscented cleanser works effectively to prevent buildup in pores, remove makeup and balance PH without drying or stripping the skin.
Azelaic Acid │brightens and evens out skin tone
Apple Cider Vinegar │helps balance PH levels
White Willow Bark │gently exfoliates the skin with naturally containing salicylic acid
Diving into the next starlight product and my personal favourite, The Face Food mineral mist.
Skin Type: For all skin types
Product Deets: A multi-purpose mineral to tone, hydrate and refresh the skin. Toners are the ultimate way to get the most out of your favourite serum, facial oil or moisturizer. Spritz away all day everyday!

Next up is serums. Graydon Skincare has two star serums that are sure to not disappoint, beginning with The Superfood Serum.

Sasha Inchi│helps smooth dry, red, irritated skin.
The next star serum is The Fullmoon Serum, the beloved anti-aging serum. While I don't like to use the term "anti-aging" ( I believe aging is beautiful) this serum certainly helps bring the appearance of the skin back a few years.
Skin Type: All skin types
Product Deets: A luxurious vegan 'water serum' loaded with all your favourite actives that help reduce the appearance of aging.
Collagen│ protein rich extract from African mahogany to help minimize pores and provide a firm texture.

Moving onto Moisturizers.
Simplifying the moisturizer descriptions, this will help you better determine which cream is best suited for you. If you would like a full run down of the product info like above for quick reference, please visit my Gradydon highlights.
Skin Stuff : Ceramide to the rescue with this skin loving moisturizer, its light and invisible texture, this cream will help support renewal of the skins protective layer, while protecting against moisture loss. This cream is perfect for the most sensitive of skins, formulated without essential oils or fragrance. Infused with a botanical ceramide, Skin Stuff helps to improve your skin barrier function, calm inflammation and help visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Phyto Clear: Infused with two plant-based retinols, this nourishing superfood-packed cream has a light, gel- light texture to gently clear congested skin, help alleviate the appearance of acne scars, restore bounce and reveal smoother brighter skin. This cream is amazing for acne prone, oily skin, or even as a spot treatment. Say good-bye acne!
Berry Rich: Did you say dehydrated? For those of you who are hella-dry, this is the cream for you. This velvety-rich formula includes vegan probiotics to nourish and boost skin health while the addition of blueberry seed oil brings your skin back up to speed. You can say good-bye to those dry flakes! Pro-Tip: add a couple spritz of the Face Food toner with this guy. This will help the product spread over the skin more evenly and expand the products use.
The Putty: If you are dealing with inflamed skin or overexposed to the elements (sun, wind, or cold), this super-soothing moisturizer helps protect and soothe your skin. This is the product my hubby uses as he is exposed to the daily elements on the daily, working outside. The putty is made with a propriety blend of healing ingredients, helping to reduce redness and skin irritation. Those of you who have been experiencing skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and dermatitis, this is the cream for you!
Last but certainly not least is the VERY first product I had tried from Graydon Skincare. This products is the #1 in the green beauty world and is one that I use every single day as part of my makeup routine .... The Face Glow.
