My Consonant Skincare at-home regimen: Organic Foaming Face Wash ($18), HydrExtreme ($72) and DHE Mask ($45). I’m going to share at not-so-well-kept beauty editor secret: on most days, we have a flood of products spilling over our workspaces. The fortress of
moisturizers and
hair oils I’ve unknowingly built around my desktop, plus the stack of press releases and magazines surrounding them, has prompted our editor in chief Noreen Flanagan to assert on more than one occasion that I’ve "lost control". And while I’ve made haphazard attempts to push the growing heap to one side of my desk (cleaning!), most of the goods get lost in the no-man’s-land beauty corner of my cubicle. So it was a welcome change when I met with Bill Baker, founder of Consonant Skincare, the Toronto-based natural skin care line, who handed me Consonant’s just-launched DHE Mask (that’s detoxify, hydrate and exfoliate, friends), along with its organic foaming face wash and HydrExtreme, and suggested a whole new
skin care routine. Now, I’d used Consonant’s HydrExtreme before, but the love affair was short-lived when I accidentally knocked a three-quarter full bottle off of my vanity. So I took heed, and took home my new skin care system to test out that night.
