Birch Babe Natural Body Products
I was given Birch Babe Natural body products (natural face cream, lip & cheek tint, natural glow face serum)to review. I received the natural glow face serum, hydrating face cream, and lip and cheek tint. The face and lip products arrived in the cold dry months. I was excited to receive both the cream and the serum. My face needs both. The combination gives my skin a glow and moisture while giving it a matte finish or shine. Working with natural beauty brands is always exciting and something I love to support.
Birch Babe Naturals
What I noticed first about the packaging is a push to reduce carbon footprints. After the holidays and a year of extra deliveries, I was happy to see such ethically packaged products. The box is a simple cardboard box with simple but festive recycled paper. Birch Babe Naturals also cares about what goes into products we use. They believe in sustainable living and a waste-free lifestyle.
Their commitment is to use only ethically sourced, premium ingredients, free of toxins, and without plastic or unnecessary packaging. Birch Babe Naturals is certified natural, vegan, chemical & toxin-free, plastic-free, sulfate-free, beeswax-free, palm oil-free, paraben-free, aluminum-free, nut-free and gluten-free. It may sound like there is a lot not in their products, but it’s what is in the products that count.
Birch Babe Natural Body Products
Four years ago, Debbie (Birch Bab’es founder) hiked solo from the southern tip of Patagonia to the Northern tip of Chile. On this trip, she saw a lot of waste in Argentina and Chile however while in Patagonia she noticed that everyone was super conscious about their waste because they were remote. Even while volunteering at Torres Del Paine, she noticed on a hike with a leader who smoked that he would put the butt in his shoelace until he found garbage off-trail.
It made Debbie realize that while she was a conscious consumer before the trip, there was so much more she could do to help make a positive impact in the world. So when she came home, she immediately retired, moved to the cottage, and started making all-natural soap and body products. She first gave them to friends then she went to a few festivals, and fast forward…Birch Babe is now in over 50 stores across North America with a growing online community. It is a collection of premium, all-natural, waste-free beauty and body products made in Ontario, Canada.
Their mission is to inspire the sustainably curious consumer to invest in everyday-essentials that are both good for our health and the environment by offering a line of premium skincare products that are both inspiring and attainable for everyone. It’s not about being perfectly zero-waste, it’s about consciously making little changes each day that all add up to making a big difference.
Birth Babe is redefining the beauty industry by encouraging sustainable business practices and actually acting on them! Some of these include only sourcing ethical ingredients, minimal to no packaging, being made in Canada in small batches, being certified natural by CertClean, and only creating products that are toxin-free to keep our bodies and the planet healthy.
Birch Babe Hydrating Face Cream
To begin with, I love face oils and creams! My skin is super sensitive, prone to breakouts, and gets dry but looks oily. I have redness in my skin and inflammation depending on my lifestyle. “Approximately 1/4 of each jar is Rosewater which is a superfood for [my] delicate face. This helps with inflammation, rejuvenates skin tissue, and aids with eczema and skin irritations. ”
Now that I’m finishing up my 30s, I have noticed a need to boost collagen, hydration, and brightness. I need added help with ingredients like vitamin A, B6, C, D, E, and antioxidants. This cream is thick, gives me a matte finish before my makeup, and makes my skin supple and soft. Birch Babe cream is certified natural and vegan and heals my face of small blemishes overnight. Even though it is winter, I will be using (or purchasing more) natural face cream this summer. It’s light and not greasy while giving my face the ingredients it needs.
Birch Babe Natural Glow Face Serum
Although I love natural face creams for their thick and moisturizing feel, serums are a necessity for me! The natural glow face serum is lightly scented so if you are sensitive, I’d go with another product. Although serums are typically worn at night, I wear mine during the day for added glow or mix it with my cream to get deep moisture with a dewy look. “Infused with ingredients to feed your skin such as carrot seed, rosehip, grapeseed, and glycerin oil to pull the emollient properties deep into the skin while keeping moisture in.”
Birch Babe Naturals serum is like food for the face with vitamins like A, C, D, B6, K, and E. An added bonus is that it contains a botanical Hyaluronic acid, Frankincense, and Lavender which are known for age-defying properties and aid with removing discoloration. These oils may be what creates the scent for the serum and lavender is my favorite!
Birch Babe Lip & Cheek Tints
The final product I tried of Birch Babe Naturals products is the lip and cheek tints. These glass jars contain “a matte, buildable lip tint and cream blush that’s moisturizing, safe, and easy to wear.”. Lip and cheek tints include herbs like comfrey, chamomile, yarrow, echinacea, sea buckthorn, calendula, rosemary, and lemon balm. The moisture comes from oils from the skin of grapeseeds, rosehip, castor, vitamin E, and shea butter.
Being that skin tone is so drastically different, I love that you can adjust the color and build the tint. A little goes a long way and the more the color the more depth. I use the tints for quick color on my cheeks and a quick gloss on my lips. It’s a simple product that I use to add a little natural tint wherever.
