Graydon’s The Green Cream is like ‘salad for your skin’

What a salad does for your body, Graydon’s The Green Cream does for your face. Deemed by this Canadian born brand as ‘salad for your skin‘, this all natural, nutrient-rich face cream hydrates skin like a champ.

The Green Cream is a lightweight moisturizer that absorbs quickly and nourishes deeply. With it’s lightweight texture, it’s the perfect cream for the warmer weather months. While it is suitable for all skin types, it generously hydrates even my (sometimes very) dry skin. It contains an infusion of broccoli, avocado, jojoba, coconut and olive oils, along with aloe vera juice, to provide powerful antioxidant and inflammatory protection against free radicals. It also contains chlorophyll, which lends the cream a pale green hue and additionally aids in detoxification. An essential oil blend parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme soothes skin and works to stimulate the lymphatic system, while giving the cream a fresh peppermint scent. A little off-putting at first ill admit, but nonetheless refreshing.

The Green Cream is a fabulous moisturizer for both day and night. It wears well under makeup and hydrates skin all day. It leaves my skin feeling plumped, hydrated and glowing. It also comes at a fabulous value.

The lovely Canadian online shop Greenaby, graciously introduced me to this delectable cream. Greenaby carries a range of covetable Canadian skin care lines including, Graydon, Helena Lane, Belmondo, and Jordan River Soapworks, all of which received notable mentions in a recent blog post by Kristen Arnet’s Green Beauty Team blog.
