Sola Skincare Product Review: locally-made natural skincare products

Disclosure: I was provided complimentary Sola Skincare Products. All opinions are my own.

Earlier this year, a friend introduced me to Sola Skincare products. I was immediately drawn to the business, from their small-batch, locally-made products, to their use of Chinese herbs and only pure and natural ingredients.

Several years ago, I changed my diet to predominantly whole foods. I have done my best to eliminate processed foods, chemicals, and toxins from my diet. But honestly, had never seriously considered doing the same to my skincare regimen.  I figured it was time to clean up my skincare routine.

I was excited to try out Sola Skincare’s Balancing Face Oil, Rose Hydrosol, Coconut Deodorant, and the Soft Skin Balm.

The balancing face oil is formulated “with the highest-quality ingredients and skin-nourishing oils including argan, tamanu, sweet almond and jojoba.” The serum is designed to make skin feel refreshed, soft, and supple. Before rubbing in the face oil, I spritzed my face with the rose hydrosol toner made from steam-distilled rose flower water.

Coconut oil as deodorant? You better believe it! Sola’s coconut deodorant is made from a few simple ingredients: baking soda, coconut oil, arrowroot powder, sweet almond oil, Chinese herbs, and beeswax. Finally, the thick soft skin balm is hydrating and deeply moisturizing, made from a high concentration of organic shea butter, beeswax, and infused organic olive oil.

I have always had sensitive skin prone to redness. Finding a natural deodorant that actually works is also a challenge. Head over to Sola’s blog for my full product review. Hint: I loved them.

  • While I love life on the west coast, it's never easy living on the other side of the country from many friends and family. Grateful for trips home, no matter how long or short (this weekend!) they may be. Back to YVR ✈️
  • Soaking up that Toronto sunshine ☀️
  • Had some of the best vegan food ever at @plantatoronto tonight! I've often been left disappointed (and hungry 😅) by new plant based eateries but this totally exceeded expectations. Loved all the dishes we tried from the cheesy queso dip (pictured here) to the peanut butter chocolate "terrarium" for dessert.
  • Springtime in Victoria #flashbackfriday meanwhile in Toronto... ❄️🌧☀️
  • Last night's surprisingly purple sunset, a welcome sight after a day of rain #tbt
  • From west coast to east coast (sort of! 😛) Toronto bound ✈️ where there is apparently a rainfall warning #cantescapeit
  • The ferry is fun, but these views can't be beat. YYJ ➡️ YVR ✈️
  • Thanks Victoria for the sunshine, great eats, good coffee, and those Island views. Now to the float plane!
