Founder & Creator: Graydon Moffat of Toronto, Ontario

‘People like to call me an ingredient anthropologist because I’m always on the lookout for incredible plant based ingredients that nourish and protect your skin. I am a ‘real food’ advocate, multi-tasking mother, a yoga inspired healthy skin educator – often seen walking my dog with a mug of green tea. You can be sure to find me foraging through local farmers markets searching for unusual products, reading glasses in hand, perusing the labels. I love what I do. In creating this line of skincare, the focus of my work is to leverage the transformative power of pure plant based ingredients to create products that are as effective and luxurious as any mainstream luxury brand.’

Graydon has many categories of products: Super Sensitive Skin, “Hungry” Dry Skin, Oily/Combination, For Your Eye Area, Mum, Baby + Kids, Hair Care, Body Stuff, Good For Men, Scent Free, Travel Essentials, Anti-Microbial, The Mist Family, & Essential Oil Blends. To view the entire collection and to learn more about Graydon Moffat click here and you can be redirected to Petal & Post.

One of the first things that personally impressed me about this special brand is the “less is more” approach. Graydon skincare does NOT contain nuts, fillers, petrochemicals, toxic chemicals, phthalates, artificial fragrances or dyes. This mindful company is committed to creating change in the beauty industry by formulating products that cleanse, protect and nourish the skin using potent plant-powered ingredients.

JAMIE MACLEAN, FOUNDER OF PETAL & POST SENT ME THESE TWO PRODUCTS FROM GRAYDON TO TRY OUT ON MY SENSITIVE SKIN. I’VE HEARD MANY GREAT THINGS ABOUT THIS LINE, BUT I HAD NOT HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE FOR MYSELF THE BENEFITS OF THIS CANADIAN SKINCARE BRAND. I EXPLAINED TO JAIME THAT MY SKIN CAN BE HIGHLY REACTIVE & HORMONAL, SO SHE RECOMMENDED THE SKIN STUFF AND BERRY RICH. THESE ARE TWO OF SIX PRODUCTS CREATED WITHOUT ESSENTIAL OILS OR NATURAL FRAGRANCE. AS MUCH AS I ADORE ESSENTIAL OILS, OFTEN I FIND THAT I CAN TOLERATE THE USE OF THEM EVERYWHERE, EXCEPT MY FACE. OR, I CAN USE JUST A DROP OR TWO OF A PRODUCT THAT CONTAINS THEM, MIXED INTO A MORE BENIGN FACE CREAM OR OIL.

Graydon has a collection of luxurious, stylish, gluten-free and transformative skin care products using natures gifts of therapeutic, plant-based oils, butters, waxes and *essences (*not in the Skin Stuff or Berry Rich face creams). I really like that Graydon is has an entire collection of “scent-free” products for the many people that are hyper-sensitive to scent. Or for those that prefer to keep essential oils and fragrances in their perfume rather than skincare or makeup.

I just completed my testing for the past two weeks and my skin drank in the moisture and nutrients with Graydon’s formulations for sensitive skin. I’m thrilled to say that my skin feels soft, hydrated, smooth and I had no reactive issues at all. That’s saying a lot for someone like me with super sensitive skin as well as the tendency for hormonal acne to rear it’s unwelcome “head”, (please excuse the pun). The formulations are rich, potent and really are clinically luxurious skincare.

I feel confident to highly recommend both the Berry Rich and Skin Stuff.  I look forward to trying the other products that this simply elegant brand has created. The Serum sounds incredible…with 50 lbs of fresh Canadian berries packed into a 30 ml bottle. That’s quite the antioxidant boost if there ever was one!

For all orders over $125.00 from Petal & Post you will receive “The Sample Discovery Box”….. free. Samples include beauty and personal care products from many different categories: makeup, skincare, haircare and fragrance. The box is so much fun to receive and what a great way to “discover” more green beauty favorites.          
                                             
Super Sensitive Skin Stuff (Good for Normal, Oily, & Combination) 1.7 fl. oz $29.00

I love the feel of this lightweight lotion/cream on my skin. In the morning, after I splash my face with cold filtered water, I follow with a spritz of toner and then press one pump of The Skin Stuff in upwards strokes on my neck and face. It sinks in immediately! I adore this product’s formulation. My skin feels moisturized and I even dab a small amount around my eye area. The subtle delicate scent is from the high concentrations of healing aloe. I highly recommend this beautiful hydrating product. Sometimes I’d rather have no essential oils added and give my complexion just the benefits of nourishing pure plant powered ingredients like black currant, evening primrose, pomegranate, and rose hip seed oils.


Berry Rich Cream (For Mature & Super Dry Skin) 1.7 fl.oz $29.00

I like to switch between the Skin Stuff (use for a.m.) and the Berry Rich Cream (use at night). The Berry Rich Cream is a bit richer in texture. From comparing the ingredients, I believe that’s because of the addition of the shea butter to the formula. In the evening after cleansing, followed with a  bit of toner, I add one pump of the Berry Rich Cream to my face, neck and decollete. As with the Skin Stuff, it isn’t the slightest bit greasy. Berry Rich is of course non-irritating and the added cranberry, blueberry and red raspberry seed oils make this a perfect power packed cream with a boost of  anti-aging nutrients. I love the idea that I’m spreading the anti-oxidant benefits of all the various plant powered ingredients over the course of the day with using both of these products in my skincare regimen.

  1. thank you so much for the lovely giveaway! i’ve always wanted to try the serum from graydon ^ ^ my skincare is all from yuli (+100% pure’s eye cream), i absolutely adore it so much… but i am always open to trying new products!

  2. I have not tried any of Graydon’s products; however, I am super intrigued by these and must try them!! Right now I’m using my Clarisonic with iS Clincal Cleanser. I don’t typically wear makeup, so I use cleansing cloths at night. Thanks for this awesome giveaway! xoxo ❤ 😀

  3. I haven’t tried any Graydon products before but would love to! Currently for evening I use Holistic Vanity Aloe Kumari Cleanser, Holistic Vanity Healing Immortelle Tonic, Marie Veronique serums (I rotate different ones) & Lavina Barbary Fig Seed Oil. For the morning I just use Marie Veronique eye serum, then Batty’s Bath primer & put on my makeup. I have followed Petal & Post on IG, FB & signed up for the newsletter.

  4. I haven’t tried their products, but as someone who also has sensitive skin, I’m super eager to! Right now I try to keep my routine consistent so my skin stays content. I use Sibu’s eye cream a.m.+p.m. and a different blend of oils a.m./p.m. (rosehip and evening primrose a.m. and argan/rosehip with helichrysum p.m.). Would love to incorporate more creams into my routine especially during the summer months though..

  5. I haven’t tried Graydon’s skincare but they sound lovely. I’m currently using Trilogy Rosehip oil & Bia Beauty Skin Food both morning & evening but I would like to try some more targeted products & maybe add a serum.

  6. Have you tried any of Graydon’s products? Nope this is my first time being introduced 😊

    What are your favorites? As a sucker for all things rose I would be all over the AMBER ROSE HAIR CLEANSER. I would also totally try the EUCALYPTUS MINT DEODORANT. I wuld also be into trying out the perfumes. It all sounds so lovely.

    What are you using now for morning and evening skincare? Morning: my Rxs, Rose Day Cream, BB tinted sunscreen and makeup. Night: A sensitive natural facial soap and makeup remover. I use Retin A mixed with a light moisturizer (still not happy with any).

  7. I have not tried any of Graydon’s products, but they sound amazing! I am currently using Blissoma and Pai products.

  8. I’ve been wanting to trying Graydon’s products for a few year’s. Tried placing an order on your site last month when you had the 20% off. For some reason the promo code wouldn’t go through.

    Currently using a variety of products (natural/organic of course!) No matter what I use- my skin breaks out. I’ve never had issues (zit/blemish) until I started making an effort to take care of it- strange!

  9. I haven’t tried any Graydon products but I’m a huge fan of Jamie’s Petal and Post. The berry rich cream definitely looks amazing!

    My morning routine: Tatcha camellia cleanser, Laurel Normal/Mature Toner, Laurel Daily Balm

    Evening routine: Tatcha cleanser, Laurel Toner, Yuli ME Skinfuel Serum and Yuli Cell Perfecto PM serum

  10. I haven’t tried Graydon yet! It’s great to hear the sensitive line is working for you! All of their products sound great, but I’m interested in the anti-microbial spray (because I’m a clean freak!) 😉 I’m using Leahlani skincare’s honeylove 3-in-1 cleanser in the morning right now and moss skincare’s beurre céleste cleanser at night. Also a variety of serums and face oils!

  11. No I’ve never used Graydon products before but I would la la LOVE to. I’m using HONEST facial products morning and evening and really like them. Thanks so very much for the chance to win such a rad and generous prize! 🙂

  12. I love Graydon’s products. My morning routine consists of All Over Soap> Serum> Face Food> Putty, Berry Rich, or Green Cream> then Glow, and my evening routine is the same minus Glow. I also use the Hair Smoothie and my husband loves the room spray and the Cleanser. My favourite product is probably the All Over Soap – it’s a body / face wash and shampoo and it smells AMAZING! Glow is pretty great too – sun protection that evens out my complexion – yes please!

  13. I haven’t tried any of their products yet, but I’d love to! Right now, I use a lot of my own DIY concoctions for morning and night skincare, but I’d love to have some higher end products.

  14. I haven’t had a chance to try Graydon’s products yet, but I would LOVE to.
    My morning routine consist of washing my face with my homemade rose water/olive oil cleanser then use my homemade basil-tea tree toner & a lightweight rose facial cream from Melvita. For the night, I use once again my rose water/oilive oil cleanser, my homemade eye makeup remover, my basil-tea tree toner & coconut oil as a moisturizer (aka MY LIFE SAVER). I exfoliate my face once or twice a week before I pamper myself with a mask. As you can see I LOVE making my own products ! (I’m going to start to study in herbalism this fall, eeep so exciting !!)

    By the way thank you for inspiring me to do the switch to green beauty ❤

  15. I’ve never tried any of Graydon’s products. I’m currently using the RawSkinCeuticals brand of skincare for morning and evening.

  16. Never tried Graydon’s but I am always on the lookout for a new brand/product to help my skin. Currently I am using in the AM: OLO easy does it with a konjac sponge and Mun’s toner and oil; and in the PM: double cleansing with ED4OLO’s cleansing oil and Osmia’s black soap, Yuli’s cocoon elixir and cell perfecto plus Osmia’s spot treatment as needed.

  17. I have not tried any of Graydon’s products, but would love to! The Berry Rich face cream looks sooo good. I currently use L’Occitane or Tata Harper, depending on my skin and the season. Tata Harper has been a pleasant addition to my cleansing routine– love their Regenerating Cleanser!

  18. I’ve heard great things about this brand. I would love the opportunity to try the products, in particular, Face Food and glow. Thank you for the giveaway! 🙂

  19. Hi Britanie!! Ah! You always tempt me to buy so many products haha, at least they’re healthy 😉 I haven’t tried Graydon before but their formulations look amazing. I’m just using basic jojoba oil and a moisturizer called Wonderseed which I get from whole foods. I want something a little more luxurious though, I’m sure you know the feeling! Hope you’re loving life!!

  20. I have not used any of Graydon’s products but I’m hoping to get s chance to do so! My skin has completely changed since becoming pregnant and I’m looking for more natural products than I’m currently using (Cetaphil, Clinique, and Laura Mercier). Great giveaway!!

  21. I haven’t tried Graydon yet but would love to! My morning routine is Thousand Petal Beautifying Mist and then Blissoma Restore, evening is One Love Organics cleansing oil, Thousand Petal Beautifying Mist, and then Holiskin Intensive Repair Treatment.

  22. Hi briranie , have never heard of Grayson’s products . Thank you for the introduction . I love discovering and trying new green beauty brands . It’s my passion .I am using kahina cleanser morning and evening . Love how mild it is . Also i have started using earthwise beauty carrot a day serum( . I am in love with this,serum from the way it rapidly absorbs in my skin ) followed by kahina
    argan oil or kahina lotion morning and evening. I love doing weekly
    masks.I
    usually massage the leahlani honey love on my
    skin for a minute or two gently then leave it on my
    skin for about 10-15 minutes as a mask, then
    rinse for radiant skin :). One thing I’m trying, since
    I have a few acne blemishes I want to clear up, is a
    homemade pineapple mask. I Just crush up a
    thumb of fresh pineapple and mix in some
    exfoliator (or oat flour) and let it sit on my face
    for 1-5 mins
    . The enzymes in the pineapple eat away at the
    dead skin and help to create that radiance I’m
    looking for.  Also I love osmia’s spot treatment for acne, but I’ve started blending my own face serum using black cumin seed oil and turmeric as they are powerful agents in fighting acne. I try
    looking for products that contain them as well as camellia seed as it’s revered to be the secret
    behind the flawless skin of Japanese women. My
    blend also contains sacha inchi and tamanu oil . living libations BSE,leahlani aloe day cream,champagne serum ,siren serum,may Lindstrom honey mud are also new additions in my routine .

  23. I have not tried any of Graydon’s products, but now I want to! My skin has completely changed since becoming pregnant, and I am on the lookout for “cleaner” products than I’m currently using (Cetaphil, Clinique, Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown).

  24. I have never tried Graydon´s products, but they look really good. I´m now using pai rosehip oil, primavera gel cleanser and products from pulpe de vie for both my skincare routines.

  25. Hi 🙂 I have not tried any of the Graydon products but they sound really beautiful! The super sensitive skin stuff sounds awesome! I have really sensitive skin so it sounds perfect for me!! I’m currently using in the morning : 100% Pure Jasmine&Green tea cleanser which is lovely, a light foam cleanser that smells nice and is very gentle on the skin, and the La Mav cranberry face scrub to gently exfoliate once a week. Then I moisturize with a jojoba oil moisturiser from Oxygen skincare which is lovely and light with barely any smell but isn’t greasy at all which I love! And perfect for sensitive skin. At night I cleanse with the 100% Pure Jasmine and green tea cleanser again, then use a few drops of pure Argan oil on my face which always feel light on the skin and soaks in nicely, then finally I use my Pai Argan and Echium eye cream which is delicious! Love to try the Graydon range as it sounds like they have some gorgeous products fr sensitive skin! xx

  26. I haven’t tried anything from Graydon but I want to! I would really like to try the super sensitive skin stuff. Currently I am using yuli halcyon cleanser, evan healy frankincense hydrosoul, laurel anti-inflammatory serum and leahlani honey love.
