Enriched with Vitamin C, this moisturizer is light weight yet very hydrating and is not at all greasy. Packaging is a stand up squeezy tube with a skinny tip dispenser so that you can get all of the product out (yay!) and allows you to squeeze out the perfect amount without wasting any. I find that this spreads very well and therefore only need about a pea sized amount for my entire face. Unlike the eye cream, this moisturizer has a fresh scent that I can tolerate and once absorbed it feels like nothing on the skin. Initially I thought it wasn’t hydrating enough because my skin felt dry to the touch but this leaves my skin well balanced, neither sticky nor dehydrated, rather comfortable.This moisturizer pairs very well with their exfoliating cleanser that shares “BrightenUp!” in the name and I do feel like there is a marked improvement in my skin since using these products. It is less dull and the texture is very smooth. Definitely a new favorite that I will keep in my rotation.Vasanti is a Canadian brand that is cruelty free, sulfate free, paraben free, 98% natural and vegan friendly.

Formulated with 4 peptides, 4 botanicals, and 3 vitamins - whatever that means. All I know is that I love the packaging! It comes in a skinny squeezy tube with a slanted ceramic tip with a small hole in it that dispenses the eye cream and spreads it along the under eye area smoothly with a nice cool feeling. This is much better than the jar style packaging that most eye creams come in although that doesn’t deter me from purchasing them, I just prefer this packaging so much more. The eye cream is neither too thin nor too thick and absorbs into my skin. I like that this is undetectable on the skin does not impact wear time of makeup. I’m not keen on the scent, thankfully it doesn’t linger but it honestly may prevent me from repurchasing in future. I wish I could use use the tube and fill it with eye creams I like better because the packaging is hands down the best!Overall rating should be 4.5 with half a lippie off for the scent but that might just be my personal preference so I’m leaving it at a 5.Vasanti is a Canadian brand that is cruelty free, sulfate free, paraben free, 98% natural and vegan friendly.

This is a great mascara for everyday. It defines lashes nicely without clumping. It wears all day without flaking or irritating my eyes, even in heat and humidity; but still removes easily with take the Day Off cleansing balm.

This is a pretty aggressive exfoliator. I recommend having your face VERY wet before applying a small amount of product to massage in, then add more water as it will become stiff and harsh on your skin which is never a good thing. If you use a small amount of product and a lot of water it will rid you of any dry flakes and reveal a softer and therefore brighter, more radiant looking skin. After rinsing and patting dry follow with your serums and moisturizers as they will penetrate the epidermis much better now that the tough flaky layer is gone. Vasanti recommends using this 3-5 times a week but for me once or twice is more than adequate to get the results I’m looking for. Any skin type can use this, except maybe those with sensitive skin (go very gentle if you still want to give it a try). I feel that this has improved the health of my skin by: stimulating circulation from massaging in the exfoliating cream; buffing away dry flaky skin; unclogging congested pores; and smoothing the texture of my skin. I highly recommend and will continue to purchase when I run out.

I accidentally posted this review in "Unlisted Brand", forgetting that Vasanti did have a listing in the "Brands" drop-down so I am copying and pasting here:I really love the Vasanti products I've tried over the years and I also love that this is a CANADIAN company with first rate products - totally effective, luxury type products but at less than luxury prices. My big complaint though, is that they have some really lame errors in their packaging/labelling. They make a wonderful Serum and nowhere on their site or on the bottle or on the box does it say to shake the product before using....nope, that's on a really tiny sticker on the UNDERSIDE of the bottle, clearly an afterthought but one they should have corrected (and still haven't). Ditto this eye cream....on the jar and on the website, it tells you to use it day and night for 28 days and then as needed for maintenance but on the box, it clearly says to use it for 36 days and nights. Stuff like this is just sloppy and careless and makes a company look unprofessional. I've posted about this on the Vasanti site and didn't even get a reply. And it's why I took off a "lippie" for packaging, Okay, so I got that off my chest and now onto the product itself....The first jar I got of this was clearly old stock. I got it home, opened it and knew from looking at it that something was wrong and the "cream" had turned into a little waxy blob at the bottom of the jar. I returned this to Shoppers Drug Mart and got a new jar and that's when the "old stock" issue became apparent because the outer cardboard box graphics had been totally redesigned. And I love my new eye cream. It's 20 ml. (as opposed to the 15 ml. that seems standard with eye creams) for $42, making it considerably more affordable than my "go to" Clarins Super Restorative, and the jar packaging means I will get every bit of product I paid for. The cream itself is lush and rich feeling but not at all greasy. It really hydrates my under eye area, helping concealer to apply in a smoother, less dry and patchy way. I've been trying out IT's Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Concealer for the past few weeks and that product can look dry and scaly but not if I use this eye cream and leave it to soak in for a few minutes. Eye Wonder promises to reduce "the look" of dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles. I don't know if it will (reducing "the look" is such a nebulous claim) but I really like this product simply for providing hydration to my eye area without irritating my eyes at all. Super product.
