This list has got you covered — these products have been tried, tested and judged by an international panel of clean beauty influencers and advocates, so you know they’re good. In fact, they’re the very best in the clean beauty industry!
First Place: Lip Balm by CocaBee
CoCaBee’s Lip Balm is an ultra-hydrating product made of coconut oil, beeswax, honey and essential oil for additional flavour. The unique blend of coconut oil keeps lips smooth for longer, so there’s no need to reapply so often.
The CocaBee lip balm is ultra-hydrating and you can feel the efficacy of its hero ingredients coconut, beeswax and wildflower honey in each application. You will feel the difference with lip texture, softness and mine are now free from dryness and chapping which happens a lot during winter. The packaging is a winner too and very easy to use!

Second Place: Peppermint Lip Balm by Pure Heart Essentials
The Eco Lip Balm is the ultimate remedy for keeping smoochers soft and supple all year round. Featuring a blend of rich butters and oils and packaged in recyclable tubes, say goodbye to chapped, cracked, cranky lips.
This balm is packed with hydrating oils for the lips and a nice light peppermint scent. The oils can feel a tad bit "greasy" on the lips but overall its a nice balm I liked to use before bed.

Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm's farm grown and distilled Rose Hydrosol hydrates the skin, balances its pH and softly soothes redness and irritation.
Extracted from the petals of the Damask Rose through steam distillation, rose hydrosol is floral and sweet in aroma and incredibly beneficial for all skin types as a face toner.
This beautiful formula is just what my sensitive skin needed. I press it into the red spots on my face. This soothes my skin and reduces redness. It’s great for those no makeup days. The formula is light and feels so good on the skin. I love the dark glass packaging which protects the product. You can also use it in cooking! That’s amazing!

Calli Essentials' Signature Blend Hydrosol - Cell Renewal is made of 100% Pure hydrosols of rose, frankincense and helichrysum. It is produced from plants free of chemicals or pesticides and is formulated especially for sensitive skin and those with rosacea.
This hydrosol purifies, promotes cell regeneration, stimulates collagen production and reduces the appearance of fine lines. It is anti-inflammatory and helps to reduce pore size, fade hyperpigmentation, tone and firm the face and neck.
I absolutely loved the richness of the rose scent and that loved that it was 100% pure hydrosol. This was my favourite in terms of ease of use, functionality - loved the spray bottle for misting the face or body, and the scent. It really helped with moistening the skin and I noticed a significant improvement in less inflammation and redness. Great product!

First Place: Skin System Care Day & Night by Tigoderm
Tigoderm skin care day & night is a clean and organic care with active antioxidants of green tea and the powerful benefit of a probiotic. As an antioxidant, green tea in the day cream not only protects against environmental influences such as UV rays, but also against free radicals and supports the skin's natural detoxification function.
The probiotic-based night cream balances the pH by providing the skin with healthy bacteria ready to fight the bad ones. The result: the natural skin flora is rebalanced overnight.
These products both out performed many I've tried in the last year or so! The day cream was light and fantastic under regular make up application and the night cream was like a mini facial in a bottle! The tone and texture of my skin were noticeably improved.

Second Place: Azure Dream Cloud by PURA Botanicals
This ethereal lotion and serum hybrid, with its whipped cloud texture, sloughs off dead skin cells for revitalized looking skin. Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, and all-natural fruit acids help to firm the skin.
Moroccan blue tansy oil soothes, softens and helps improve the skin's resiliency and Japanese yuzu oil aids in neutralizing harmful free-radicals. Intensive nutrients from cold-pressed avocado oil, prickly pear extract and cooling cucumber extract maintain a supple, lifted, and radiant finish.
Azure Dream Cloud is the perfect name for this moisturizer because EVERYTHING about it is an absolute dream. The pastel blue colour is magical, the delicate sweetness of the aroma is out of this world, and the results I had were impressive to say the least. This calms your senses and your skin, and it leaves you excited to do your skincare routine each day. After a week I noticed less redness in my cheeks in particular, and the sensitivity I had been experiencing due to the weather had calmed right down. If you need to repair and protect your skin, this is the perfect choice. It's lightweight, softening, and just so stunning!

DrLOUIE All-in-One Essence is a toner, serum, and moisturizer in one bottle. With this one bottle, you can skip and replace your everyday toner, serum, and moisturizer with this one bottle, allowing for a quick, but effective anti-aging skincare routine morning and night.
It is the ultimate anti-aging time and money saver for those looking to simplify their anti-aging skincare routine.
I love that this product tightened my pores and refreshed my skin and didn’t leave my skin reacting with acne. When my skin feels like it has too much of anything in it it feels clogged and breaks out. This liquidy consistency was more like a serum that was really good for my skin personally.
