I love the deep moisturizing properties of the oil balm, but this is best for daily use. I was previously using a Paula's Choice niacinamide product, which couldn't be reused. I love that this contains niacinamide as a primary ingredient AND works great as a light moisturizer. Makes my skin look and feel like glass. Sometimes I need an extra layer on top — will use a bit of oil cream in future if I need a boost. SO love the sustainability and packaging.
This is a heavier moisturizer and takes awhile to sink in, but the effects are worth it! In the meantime, my skin has a lovely glow to it. I don't wear it everyday, and am more inclined to use the green tea cream more often for summer, but will use the oil balm all the time in the winter. I also LOVE the packaging of the product and the service -- owner sends little individual notes with orders. Thanks for offering science based, effective skincare products that can actually be refilled with minimal extra cost to the environment! So many brands use glass but containers can't be reused.
I have never really cared about skincare overly, but when I first used Maison Wolfberry's Double Cleanser, I fell in love. Not only is it SUPER easy for anyone to use, it does an INCREDIBLE job at taking off my makeup and making my skin feel soooo clean. The other aspect that won me over was their values, the glass bottle is not only stunning, it is refillable. Maison Wolfberry's dedication to our planet and it's products.... it blows me away. I couldn't recommend this more! You really need to give it a try!
I'm a Environmental Scientist so I have a tendency to look hard at "organic" "vegan" products.. Maison Wolfberry passed with flying colors! Formulation wise and practically. They offer a mail back refill, biodegradable packaging (the cornstarch peanuts.. I saved them!) and the products themselves were beautiful. You only need a small amount, for me 2 pumps and the fragrances was my favorite being light and fresh (❤ sage fragrance). The gel balm moisturizer is GREAT melting into your skin. Thought has gone into this which is what you want when putting product on your skin, specially on your face.
I really liked the cute packaging and the cute golden spoon that I received with my oil-balm. The balm itself is multifunctional and can be applied anywhere, works well for dry skin, especially during winter.
I really love this face cream! It makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. It keeps my face moisturized all day. I struggle with perioral dermatitis and this cream has been wonderful and not caused any reaction.
This gem cream is incredibly hydrating. I have really dry skin and using this as my first step after washing my face has prevented itchy dry skin. I still use a moisturizer after but I feel like the gel helps a lot. It’s gentle and smells delicious!
Love this as a day cream; I agree with the underlying reviewer, people with drier skin (like me), you'll need something ontop like an lil/shea if you want to use this as a night cream...or if you have a retinol uglies... I love it right now in my morning routine, adding The ordinary's resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% for a super boost!
I admit, I'm a slather-er, but I feel I went through this way too fast, love it!
I have really dry skin, and trying out retinol, and find this really helps soothe and hydrate! I've also never used a product that went to an oil so completely and quickly! Absorbs pretty well.
I absolutely love this line. It matches my values of supporting small, female owned business; cruelty free; refillable, natural, powerful ingredients; and great skin results! I highly recommend, and as the headline says -- I'm a repeat customer!
I really like this skimcare set. My skin feels fresh and well taken care of. The balm is super hydratimg without being greasy, and it's my favorite. It will go a long way this winter!
No breakouts (other than hormonal and stress related)! 2 in 1 cleanser works great and the balm is amazing (my fave of the set)! I have dry skin with an oily t-zone and I don’t think the gel cream alone is enough for day time wear for me (maybe it’ll be different in the summer or spring). It would be probably be recommendable to mix it with some of the balm but I still have another light lotion so I mix those for the daytime and my skin doesn’t get too dry. For the balm a little goes a long way so I only use it during the nighttime (will use a minuscule amount once my other lotion runs out to my daytime routine). Would def buy the cleanser and balm again! Also wonderful customer service!!!
This green tea gel cream is beautiful in all aspects which includes its packaging, ingredients, texture and effectiveness. It comes out jelly-like from the pump and bursts into a more fluid consistency that is easily spread onto your skin when rubbed between your hands or applied directly to the face. It is best to have your skin damp for increased hydration and ease of application. Although this is not oil-free, it does not make t-zones oilier nor does it feel greasy and heavy. Dry skin types will need another occlusive layer on top of this.
While using potent serums that contain vitamin c and niacinamide alone can irritate most people, I was able to apply this gel cream twice daily (AM/PM) as recommended without any problems despite my sensitive skin prone to redness. However, as everyone is different, do what works best for yourself. It has only been 7 weeks I have already noticed significant brightening to my skin so do be patient by consistently applying each day and it will be rewarded.
If you have concerns about sourcing, scientific studies regarding effectiveness of ingredients, if it affects malassezia, initiatives for the environment or anything, know you are in excellent hands. The owner is welcoming to questions and is quick to respond.
It's nice and gentle. Perfect for sensitive skin, especially the fragrance free version. It can be worn under makeup without pilling.
This is the perfect skincare set for anyone who is interested in skincare and doesn't want to be overwhelmed by a million products. Great ingredients and super cute packaging
It has the texture of a serum and because I have dry skin I put their cream on top or my Cerave cream that helps lock in the moisture, it's really hydrating and great quality for the price!
I’m not typically one to leave reviews, even with products I’ve used for years. I have relatively neutral skin, neither dry nor oily, and was consistently using another “all natural” moisturizer until they changed the formula and it started causing breakouts, something i’d never really had in the past. Maison Wolfberry kept popping up on my Instagram, and the packaging caught my eye. I researched the ingredients throughly, but didn’t really see how I could fit it in my skin routine as I like to keep it really simple. I finally purchased all three products and have yet to decide which is my favourite. But I really do love the feel of this moisturizer. It looks thick but melts quickly into the skin, leaving it dewy looking. It’s packed with simple scientifically backed ingredients, without going overboard. I genuinely hope it never gets reformulated as I will be a returning customer! No breakouts, just beautifully hydrated skin that looks youthful. A little goes a long way too. Best of all, it’s Canadian. Shipping was lightening speed. And the little hand written thank you note genuinely made me feel like it was lab packaged/mixed for me. I can’t wait to see what other products they come up with. Not gonna lie, I want them to stay under the radar because I personally feel quality goes down as products become famous. Hoping that’s not the case here because I have been gushing about it to my friends and family too!
I don’t ever leave reviews on skincare products but I am so happy I stumbled across this skincare line. I have very sensitive skin and am not a fan of highly fragranced products. I am, however, a huge fan of science backed, simple and effective skincare. I have been using the all over oil balm and double cleanser for about two weeks now. I have very dry skin and was looking for a product that gave me a healthy “glow”. A little of the balm goes a long way. I also love the simple and sustainable packaging. Highly impressed!
This is magical just like my skin after using this product!
My face is like soft ice cream now, and everybody loves some soft ice cream!
I’m usually not a fan of products like this and wasn’t sure what I’d use it for - but it ended up wowing me, I put it on my sunburnt face and I could see significantly less irritation on my skin the same day and even less the following day. My skin also tends to get dry, and a little of this goes a long way in keeping it hydrated
Wonderful tea tree oil scent but not too overpowering and feels amazing on the skin
Kept my skin hydrated, love that it isn’t sticky and also very lightweight
I began with just trying the face wash and I was beyond happy! Amazing texture, love the oil to light foamy lather, and my skin very much enjoyed the results. I ordered the gel cream to try as well and promptly gave all of my TO serums to my friend because this replaced them all (besides my chemical exfoliant because I need a weekly refresh). The Gel cream is the ultimate serum/moisturizer and makes skin plump and glowy, I travelled across Canada with my dad in an airstream and I did not get icky car skin at all. On top of all of this I was sent the oil balm as a gift and I think of all of the products this one is my favourite. It feels oily but I say that in the best way because when it sinks in you feel like a babys butt. I put on a little in the morning and it makes me look dewy and healthy, and then a lot at night and I wake up with very moisturized and happy skin. This brands values are amazing and the woman running has truly created a great atmosphere. Every order I've recieved came with a kind note and it truly feels like a personal experience. I highly recommend this brand to anyone who wants to help the environment, support a woman operated Canadian business, and wants great skin from a product that delivers on its promises.
This will be a life saver during winter
