Mommy Greenest Approved: Saison Beauty Natural Skincare

natural skincare saison beauty products lined up in a rowRemember when you were in high school and your grandma’s friend was “having her colors done” and you learned you were a Spring? Okay, maybe that’s just me. But I was fascinated by that cool little color wheel and how it finally made sense that I still loved pink even though I was 16. That’s kind of how I felt when I discovered Saison Beauty, which takes the seasonal concept and applies it to natural skincare. Genius!

Saison Beauty natural skincare products are hand made for each season and skin type to perfect your skin through the changing months.

Because we all know that skin gets oilier in summer and drier in winter, yet we keep on using the same damn products every day. Right? It just makes sense to switch it up: Saison Beauty natural skincare products are specially formulated for each season and skin type to perfect your skin throughout the changing months.

Each Saison Beauty natural skincare product starts with the highest-quality organic plant extracts, hand made fresh to order in small batches. Then they add ingredients from plants and produce that are in season during that time of the year.

So if you have normal skin, you’re a Spring—you need hydration from fresh, natural ingredients like avocado, as well as antioxidant-rich goodies like green tea and rose geranium.

But if you’re a Spring and it’s October, when your skin begins to produce less oil and starts to recover from summer sun damage, you’ll want to shift your regimen. That’s when you can combat fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation with Saison Beauty natural skincare Autumn Moisturizer, which adds collagen-stimulating L-Ascorbic Acid to the mix.

Similarly, if you’re shopping by skin type—Summer is oily, Autumn is dry and Winter is mature—you can adjust your product choices as the seasons change.

And finally, there’s a Saison Beauty natural skincare Year-Around Hydrating Hand Lotion and Face Mask designed for annual use.

Regardless of your skin types or the season, all Saison Beauty natural skincare products are based on a recommended regimen of cleansing oil, cleansing grains, lotion spray and moisturizer. This may seem like a lot of hydration to some, but the delicate formulations never weigh down the skin. For body, there are seasonally-oriented body washes, oils and lotions.

Of course, Saison Beauty natural skincare products eschew petrochemicals, parabens, silicones, phthalates, sulfactes, glycols, PEGs, DEA, MEA, TEA, triclosan or synthetic fragrances, colors or dyes—basically anything on my list of red flag ingredients. All of the products are PETA and Leaping Bunny certified, and most are vegan–except for the cleansing grains and face mask, which contain organic milk and honey.

  1. I have noticed a lot of changes but I think most of it is due to aging unfortunately.

  2. My skin is dry on winter time!

  3. Jennifer S. says

    My skin doesn’t change much, probably because I live in S. CA and we don’t have seasons the way most of the country does. My face only gets dry if I happen to spend a large amount of time outside when it’s cold (relatively speaking, of course), particularly at night. But a heavier moisturizer rather than a gel usually does the trick.

  4. Ineed good moisturizer!!!

  5. Yeah, my skin gets really dried during the winter.

  6. mae abigail songco says

    definitely! aside from applying moisturizer and others on my skin, i make sure i’m well hydrated.. 🙂

  7. Aaiza Iftikhar says

    Not too much..just gets a little more dry during winters. I use vaseline aloe fresh, it is super hydrating and perfect for my skin during winters

  8. BlackAsphodel says

    I don’t change my skincare based on the seasons. I always use a gentle cleanser and light moisturizer.

  9. A heavier moisturizer in the winter.

  10. My skin gets dryer in the winter, so I use a serum instead of night creme.

  11. Cristi Andreea says

    I use a heavier moisturizer in the winter.

  12. Julie Murphy says

    my skin gets dry in the winter


    Intense cold or heat makes it considerably drier, I adjust my moisturizing care accordingly.

  14. Drier skin this time of years. I use more lip balm & moisturiser.

  15. My skin is very dry so i need good moisturizer!!!!

  16. My skin is much oilier is the summer so I skip moisturiser under my sunscreen

  17. My skin does change with the season. I use a heavier moisturizer in the winter.

  18. Cathy Oppedisano says

    I suppose my skin changes with the seasons by getting some colour on it in the summer when exposed to sunshine and it goes really pale in the winter when there isn’t enough sun to give it any colour. The winter is so harsh and the summer is so hot and humid. It works harder and harder as I grow older so the Saison Beauty Natural Skin Care line will be an excellent product to have since I have never tried it before and Autumn is now upon us.

  19. I live in an area where the weather is moderate, so skin changes are slight from season to season. As to those old, “color seasons”, I never subscribed to them. I’m a color expert who believes everyone is unique and can’t be pigeonholed. I have 100 color cards (brights, darks and pastels) that I use to find people’s best colors and give them a chart and list. It takes about an hour. There is no substitute for individual attention, but if you are the DIY type, my Custom Wardrobe book will walk you through the process. See my website.

  20. Cindi Picou says

    I see my skin becoming more dry in the winter. I try not to shower in very hot water and to use my coconut oil scrub to both moisturize and remove the dead skin (I use this from head to toe.) Then I normally use a liquid makeup or CC Cream makeup in the coldest months to help hydrate, otherwise I only use mineral makeup like Jane Iredale

  21. I live in Los Angeles where we don’t have seasons so I have to admit to not making any large changes over the course of a year.

    • Rachel Sarnoff says

      I live in LA, too! I feel like there is a shift–subtle, maybe–from the humidity of summer to the dry winds of fall and (sometimes) winter. Although I will say it hasn’t changed yet!

  22. I use a richer, more hydrating moisturiser during the winter. I also tend to use a serum a lot more regularly during the winter.

    • Rachel Sarnoff says

      Yes, I agree. I find that my regimen is more stripped down in summer, but I’ll add more components as it gets cooler.

  23. Of course in warm weather, like spring and summer I feel the sweat on my face, and when a pimple shows up, it’s more gross to feel!

  24. Michelle Castagne says

    My skin gets dryer and needs more moisture in the winter.

  25. Lara Baumann says

    Yes it gets drier in the winter. I usually add a moisturizer on top of my facial oil.

  26. My skin gets drier as the seasons start to change into Fall. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

  27. I change my moisturizer to hydrate my skin more in the winter it gets very dry and red and in the summer a lighter moisturizer

  28. Rose Holloway says

    I moisturise more during the colder seasons

  29. I use darker colours on my lips & eyes & I use a bit more moisturizer.

  30. Christine M says

    My skin hates the wind so I need to moisturize double more.

  31. My skin gets a little drier in the winter so I switch to a heavier moisturizer.

  32. My cheeks get super dry in the winter so I just use a thicker moisturizer.

  33. My skin does get drier in the winter months particularly in the t-zone area of my face. I use plenty of good facial moisturizers to help with the dryness.

  34. My skin is fair and sensitive. My skin glows in the summer and loves the humidity. I usually only need a light moisturizer. With fall coming, I’m adding in a serum, then mixing a few drops of facial oil with my moisturizer. When winter hits, I usually use a strong moisturizing serum, and if my skin is very dry, I will just use a facial oil. They are great year round, but esp during dry and/cold months!

  35. I have vitiligo and very sensitive skin. I need super good stuff in the winter and my hands still crack and bleed. I have yet to find something that will prevent this. I hope this will be it.

  36. I take hot baths with coconut or sesame oil in them, and do deep moisturizing face masks.

  37. I need a heavier moisturizer in the winter vs. summer.

  38. Lisa Areford says

    Not only does my skin change with the seasons but now as I am aging it is taking some strange turns! I could really use help with this. And I love the fact that these products do not have any crazy ingredients!

    • Rachel Sarnoff says

      Yes, I agree! Just when you think you’ve got this skincare thing down, your skin goes and changes on you 🙂

  39. Michelle H. says

    I tend to need more intense moisturizing during the colder months. I will use moisturizing oils in addition to my other skincare products.

  40. my nose peels like crazy around this time i don’t do anything for it

  41. my skin definitely gets drier, so i need to add more moisture into my skin routine

  42. I am on an endless quest for the perfect natural skincare products. This would be the ideal prize to get me one step closer to skincare nirvana.

  43. Debbie Sturt says

    I think most of us forget that it’s not just about knowing what type of skin you have, but also understanding those pesky little shifts our skin makes when the weather changes. 🙂

    • Rachel Sarnoff says

      Yes! Absolutely! I always have this ONE day at the beginning of fall when I put on my makeup and look TOTALLY wrong. I can’t predict it, it’s just a shift from summer that needs to happen, stat!

  44. heavier night cream in the winter

  45. Deborah Zarett says

    I think I’m a summer even well past youth …

  46. In winter, I typically need to exfoliate and wear moisturizer more. Other than that, I’m just acne prone all year long. I try to evaluate what my skin needs daily.

  47. Holly Petrie says

    I usually have to add more moisture in the winter while preventing shine in the summer.

  48. Not really. It’s combination all the time!

  49. Laura Royal says

    I use a richer moisturizer during the winter months.

  50. My skincare needs slightly Because I live in such a dry environment (desert), I need a bit more moisture, particularly exposed areas (like my hands and face). I generally make small changes, like moisturizing before my skin is completely dry. I also like to use extra lotion such as Aveeno and Keri

    • Rachel Sarnoff says

      I always feel the dryness when I visit my family in New Mexico. Good idea to moisturize damp–have you tried an oil?

  51. Marlene V. (Enelram) says

    In winter my skin becomes drier – I often need to use more moisturizer and lip balm.

  52. Luckily my skin stays the same year round unless I travel. Something about the weather in LA that keeps its looking it best. If I travel I usually have to deal with dryness and acne so extra moisturizers and witch hazel usually do the trick!

  53. my wife would like them

  54. I just usually use more moisturizer in the winter.

  55. My skin is happiest in summer. Colder season make it a challenge.

  56. Lovely . Sounds perfect for dry, winter skin

  57. Yes, My skin is always much drier in the winter especially with having radiators for heat in winter!

  58. Carrie Duran says

    The only thing I do differently is I use a heavier nighttime moisturizer. I’ve never heard of Saison Beauty, but I like what I’m seeing!

  59. Susan Kibrick says

    My skin definitely changes with the seasons. I find as the summer turns into fall, my skin gets drier and needs more moisture.
