This cleansing balm, from a sustainable beauty brand in Vancouver, provides such a feel-good cleansing experience! Works for any skintype, inclusive of even sensitive, eczema-prone skin. Massaging the soothing balm into my damp skin turns it into a milk that gently breaks apart the makeup/debris from the day. Unlike some oil-based cleansers, it washes away super easily, while leaving my skin soft and moisturized. If you enjoy earthy, lemony scents this one is especially for you! 🌿🍋 WOODLOT - Nourishing Cleansing Balm

aniyaabeautySounds great! Do you recommend using a second cleaner after use this? (I have sensitive skin)

valchemicIt’s not necessary, as long as you gently use a warm wet facecloth to rinse it off! (Also you can use a 10% discount code on www.portia-Ella.com : EMBRACE)

Valentina’s Introduction
Hey lovelies, I’m so excited to be here, a social media app for skincare - whaaaat a dream come true! 💫 My personal skincare journey began when I started getting eczema on my neck, face, arms, legs in university, which I graduated with a BScience. I knew about the risks of using topical steroids, so I’ve been adamant on finding holistic ways to treat my case of eczema by first understanding the root cause. It’s a complex journey, as I’ve come to understand that there are different causes for eczema, such as stress, nutrition deficiencies, allergies, genetics, etc. So I began looking into skincare to find ways to manage my skin health while figuring out my entire health 🤪 Growing up with sensitive skin, I stayed away from most beauty products to avoid getting adverse reactions from certain synthetic ingredients... until I started looking into the benefits of clean, plant-based ingredients. And I make sure to look out for greenwashing! 🤓 I’ve since found that when I use the right ingredients, my skin actually thanks me. I now also look at skincare as part of self care rituals that our ancestors took on for many generations. In the past couple years, my passion has been focused on working out a skincare formula to soothe eczema-related rashes and infections. In the meanwhile, I’ve started working at a conscious, ethical beauty studio, Portia-Ella that carries ~40 Canadian brands, mostly led by women. I love working with our empowering team, which fuels my growth/self-development. We get a lot of training on ingredients and interact with various skin types, so I’m always happy to help! 🥰 In these photos, from Valentine’s Day, I’m holding some of my favourite skincare products of all-time, which you can find at Portia-Ella (online too.) I’ll be reviewing them in future posts 🤩 What’s your current skincare obsession? 🙌🏽 GRAYDON - The Putty WOODLOT - Nourishing Cleansing Balm GRAYDON - Face Food Mineral Mist Corpa Flora - Antidote HB5 Hydration

I have very dry, red, sensitive skin and this cleanser worked wonders for me! It doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight and really gets in and deep cleans my skin. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great every day cleanser!

Hands down best makeup remover I’ve ever used. It’s a Micellar water targeted for sensitive skin. This product may be used for face and is gentle enough for use on the eyes. It’s great for soothing irritated skin. This Water works amazing on waterproof makeup as well. I’ve been using this for over a year now and I hate that I didn’t try this product sooner. The full size bottle (16.7 oz) retails for $14.90 which is more than I have paid for any makeup remover but is worth every penny. I keep this mini bottle in my bag all the time. I will recommend this 100 times over any makeup remover.

Eve Lom Cleansing Oil Capsules
Eve Lom Cleansing Oil Capsules
Product Function: These cute capsules are meant to remove all traces of makeup and will keep your skin hydrated for up to 12 hours. Target Concerns: The capsules are good for all skin types, even oily and sensitive. My Experience: The capsules can be used as your primary cleanser or as a first cleanse. I love that the capsule itself is 100% biodegradable and made out of a vegetable based “material” according to the brand. Some of the key ingredients are Grapeseed Oil, Camelina Oil, Eucalyptus, Clove, Egyptian Chamomile, Hops and Magnolia Bark extract. The Cleansing Oil itself is lightweight and rinses off beautifully with no oily residue left behind. My skin feels really soft and hydrated after cleansing with these capsules and I’ve noticed that they help a bit with redness. Im definitely going to save these for future travels since they’re especially great if you’re flying and don’t want to have to check a bag! And they’re such a space saving product for your travel bag. I love these capsules and I would definitely recommend them. Although I wouldn’t use them every single day I think they’re great to throw in your bag for travel or to take to the gym. At $75 for 50 capsules I think they’re a bit pricey, but if you don’t want to have to worry about cleansing oils spilling in your gym bag/travel bag then I think they’re worth it. 5/5 EVE LOM - Cleansing Oil Capsules

perfect cleanser for sensitive skin
perfect cleanser for sensitive skin
This Tashmoo milky wash by hollifrog is the perfect cleanser for sensitive skin. It is designed to cleanse the skin gently without stripping your skin of moisture. When applied and lathered, it doesn’t foam up at all- which shows that this will not dry the skin a single bit. It is the most gentle, calming, softening face wash I’ve ever used! I’ve been using this for around a month and I especially love using this as my morning cleanse. The texture is like a serum or lightweight lotion- feels super nice on the skin! It doesn’t cause me any irritation what so ever, it leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I recommend this cleanser for ANY skin type, but because it is so gentle it’s perfect for sensitive skin. It has a pretty high price point at $38, but I have seen worse and considering it’s a really nice product, I would say it’s worth the money. It cleanses the skin wonderfully and does exactly what it says. I rate this cleanser 5/5 stars!

Stubborn eye makeup is no match for these pads!
Stubborn eye makeup is no match for these pads!
Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads are marketed as gentle pads to remove stubborn, waterproof makeup. They are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and dermatologist tested which is was drew me to purchase them at CVS. I grabbed them when I was in a pinch and needed to fix my eyeliner at work. I actually was surprised at how gentle these were and how well they worked at removing makeup. The pad itself is quite smooth and doesn't tug at the skin the way a traditional cotton pad does. The remover it is saturated with is quite oily and it dissolves eye makeup super fast. I have very sensitive skin and unlike most makeup removers this caused no stinging, irritation or redness. I actually is quite soothing to the eye area and leaves it hydrated. The remover is very potent so I only need one pad for each eye to remove all my eye makeup and eyebrows. You definitely want to follow with a cleanser or micellar water to remove the residue. One container comes with 120 pads and is only $3.99 so it's definitely worth purchasing these for when you're on the go and need an eye makeup remover. They're great to throw in your makeup back as they're super convenient. They also work great at removing stubborn long wear lipstick as well. I've been using these for about 2 weeks now and plan to repurchase. Overall, I would definitely reccomend these to a friend looking for something convenient, effective and affordable. I give them 5/5 stars!

Best cleanser for redness!🍦
Best cleanser for redness!🍦
This is a luxurious cleanser made with Greek yogurt which is rich in proteins, minerals, and vitamins to gently cleanse while nourishing, leaving skin soft and supple, and reducing redness! The formula also easily removes makeup and impurities without irritation!! This also includes amaranth seed extract to soothe, as well as calming honeysuckle to provide antibacterial benefits. It is formulated without SLS and SLES, Parabens, Formaldehydes, Formaldehyde-releasing Agents, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Silicones, and other nasty stuff! Also this is made with 86.4% natural ingredients and is cruelty free plus suitable for vegetarians!! It has such a unique texture because it feels so creamy but is also a gel and foams up when touched with water! This is a very affordable price in my opinion because it is $26 for 5.07 oz and it lasts you a long time!! I have had such good results with this and is my all time favorite cleanser! I recommend this to anyone especially people with sensitive skin and redness, it is a life saver!!👼 KORRES - Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser
