Saving Grace

saveface-clearly-clean As we start to age (that’s not a bad word you know — aging) more and more women are realizing that in order to have beautiful skin when you’re, ahem, more mature, you need to start taking care of your skin from a younger age. Mother and daughter team Barb MacDonald and Siobhan MacDonald-Newsome believed just that and from there, SaveFace, a skincare line formulated to those in between years, 20-35 year olds, was born. The concept is simple, focus on the retention of youth, and maintaining a youthful appearance while postponing the need for anti-aging or anti-wrinkle products and services.

The line consists of cleansers, moisturizers, eye creams and toners that contain a special SF5 complex. This complex comprises of olive leaf, guava, grape seed, and cucumber seed extracts, along with a marine biopolymer, that has been shown to not only preserve youthful skin, but to reverse key signs of visible aging. It also includes other extracts and botanicals, essential oils and actives, such as Thermus Thermophilius, which is heat activated, UV resistant and helps reverse the effects of sun spots, imperfections, and wrinkles.

In addition to using natural ingredients, SaveFace products are all free from SLS and DEA, parabens, artificial fragrances, colours and is biodegradable, animal-friendly and all the ingredients can be found on the website.

Now that’s aging gracefully.

    We’re in that age range but still struggle with occasional breakouts. Any recommendations on what specific products to use from this line?

    We’d recommend:
    Clearly Clear Facial Cleanser
    Complexion Perfection Toner
    Daylight Facial Cream
