Not that I was dissatisfied at all….and neither were Diane and Sarah.  Here are our thoughts about some of the live clean products:

Me:  I tried the Glowing daily serum and soothing daily moisturizer:

Glowing daily serum absorbs easily for a luminous glowing complexion.  It helps calm skin and support firmness, tone and elasticity around face and neck.  Orchid extract seals in moisture and replenishes skin’s moisture barrier, while antioxidant Vitamin C protects and boosts radiance.  Suggested retail $22.99 CAD

Soothing daily moisturizer quenches thirsty, dry skin and restores softness. Orchid extract seals in moisture and replenishes skin’s moisture barrier, while antioxidant Vitamin C protects and boosts radiance.  Suggested retail $19.99

“I loved both of these items.  The serum is amazing-it helps my moisturizer absorb into my skin so much better.  I apply it from the neck upwards onto my face, and have noticed that my skin feels more hydrated. The moisturizer adds to that-my skin is so soft and smooth.  The moisturizer is the right consistency-not too thick and not too thin.  My only ‘thumbs down’ is that the moisturizer doesn’t have SPF, but I have been told that some sunscreen is in the works! Looking forward to that!”

Next up is Diane, with her review of the Smoothing Facial Scrub:

“For the past 6 weeks, I have been using Live Clean Smoothing Facial Scrub 3 times a week.  I’ve been very pleased with the results.  A little bit goes a long way.  There is a very pleasant fragrance that lingers while you are massaging the product on your face.  After it is cleaned and washed, the skin has a very creamy feel to it.  I’m 65 and was pleased at how it minimized many fine lines on my face.  It also eliminated a try patch on my forehead that has been there for a long time.  I will continue to use this product and will try other items in the Live Clean line.”

Smoothing Facial Scrub (140 g) $14.99
-Formulated with micro fine granules of cornmeal
-Natural cornmeal (from ground corn cob) is non-abrasive and lightly
  polishes skin erasing impurities and dull layers of dead surface cells
  allowing for improved absorption of moisturizing treatments
-Softens skin and provides fresh matte glow
-Stimulates natural skin-cell turnover
-Results in luminous, even toned complexion
And finally, Sarah (my coworker that sits behind me) speaks on the Deep Cleansing Clay Masque:


Deep Cleansing Clay Masque (120 g) $19.99
-A 15-minute deep cleansing treatment that removes dead, dry surface
  cells using natural kaolin clay
-Kaolin is known for its absorbent qualities which draw out toxins from the
-Soothes and removes impurities to reveal fresh, radiant skin with beautiful
 texture, tone and refined pores
-Provides natural antioxidant protection

I love this mask! I have many skin care products for my face and I believe the Live Clean clay mask can complement any regime. The scent is delicate and pleasant, and the application is very smooth.  Best of all, the balance between oil removal and moisture balance is great.  I definitely recommend this product and I will continue to use it regularly.

I think one thing that all of us agree on is that it is GREAT to have skincare products that are natural AND affordable.  I have been using these products for several weeks now and I will definitely purchase from the liveclean line again.  That says a lot coming from a person who has spent hundreds on a single jar of skin cream.

My top 5 reasons you should buy liveclean skincare:

1. ingredients

2. commitment to environment (with the packaging)

3. affordable

4. wide range of products in the line

5. NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS (doesn’t every cosmetic company seem to be jumping ON the animal testing bandwagon these days?)


Liveclean is available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart in Ontario Canada.

    Looks interesting. I like the fact that they’re cruelty-free and organic. Hopefully I’ll see these products in US drugstores as well.
