raspberrymint products review

Let me introduce you to another Canadian Indie brand: raspberrymint created by Cherish, a Registered Nurse with a passion for providing chic, safe and cruelty-free products for the modern woman.

Today I’m sharing with you two of her products: the Avocado Body Butter & Face Moisturizer ($28 CAD) and the Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask ($28 CAD). These are part of her Gold Collection which are premium products for head-to-toe indulgence.

raspberrymint represents eco-friendly luxury products that are great for us. Products that are beautifully made and handcrafted in small batches; while saying no to the following:

– No to cruelty/animal testing.
– No to putting chemicals on our bodies.
– No to parabens.


Ingredients

Avocado Body Butter & Face Moisturizer

Avocado Oil green leaf - natural ingredient Pressed from the fruit of the Persea Americana (avocado).
Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil synthetic ingredient When a plant oil is hydrogenated, it is chemically converted from a liquid to a semi-solid or solid form using a process that involves hydrogen gas under high pressure.

Question: do you consider hydrogenated oil as natural or not?

Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask

Dead Sea Mineral Mud green leaf - natural ingredient From the Dead Sea in Israel.
DMDM Hydantoin (0.009%) green leaf - natural ingredient An organic compound that is an antimicrobial formaldehyde releaser preservative with the trade name Glydant.

While we always strive to keep our products chemical-free, the nature of Dead Sea Mud requires the addition of a full-spectrum preservative to prevent the growth of bacteria and moulds. DMDM has been deemed safe as a preservative by the FDA and falls well within the prescribed limit.


Avocado Body Butter & Face Moisturizer

This avocado butter is moisturizing AF! And a little goes a long way. I have combination skin so I have not tried this on my face because I feel it would be too heavy for me, but I’ve been using it on my elbows and knees where the skin tends to be dryer and it’s been working wonders. And sometimes I use it on my hands before going to bed. It does leave a greasy feel behind (it is oil after all), but when I’m applying before bed I don’t mind.

It is rather odourless, I can’t detect a scent, which is great for people who have sensitivities to scents.

Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask

Our Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask which can be used on your face and/or body removes toxins and impurities from the skin, tightens and tones, helps improve blood circulation, and aids in skin regeneration.

I use a mask brush to apply my masks (so I don’t get my hands full of it) and this one applies very easily with a brush. It feels cool when first applied and starts to dry very quickly. For me it, fully dried in about 10 minutes. When it dries, the mask turns a lighter green so you know when it’s ready to be removed.

I couldn’t smile with the mask on. 🙂

This mask has a very very faint mud smell that I barely noticed at all.

When the mask was fully dry I opened my mouth really wide cause I love to make masks crack, lol! This one didn’t crack like I expected it to though, it mostly crumbled into a fine dust that fell down all over my sink that I just cleaned while it was drying, oh dear! 🙂 The mask didn’t completely crumble off my face, it was just some little bits where the mask cracked.

My preferred method to remove face masks like this is to use a damp face cloth, and that’s what I do with this one. My face feels really nice once cleaned up, it does not feel tight or stripped of moisture. I then proceeded with the rest of my face care routine.

I always do face masks at night before going to bed.

Final Thoughts

I’m really enjoying both products. If you have dry skin you need to try the Avocado Body Butter & Face Moisturizer. And the Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask makes my face feel wonderful, you need to try that one too!

  • The mud mask sounds fabulous! I have a couple of more natural ones as well and they do the same weird crumbly thing when they dry up too. Just make sure that you’re not wearing white or something haha! Glad to see that more companies are making products like this 🙂

    • Oh geez I can only imagine what this mask would look like crumbled onto a white shirt, lol! I really like it though, it’s the first one I try like this and it makes my face feel great.
