Toronto's Own Diane Lai Introduces the Latest in All Natural Moisturizers

Wednesday, February 02, 2011





'Tis the dreaded season of winter, replete with snow, freezing temperatures and dry weather. We are, by the way, reportedly expecting between 20-30 centimetres of snow over the next few hours in addition to extreme cold. Fun. (However, it isn't snowing yet so I doubt we'll have a 'snow day.') Normally, when I sit down at my computer and start typing away, I look down at my hands to see the dry skin and cracked knuckles that make their reappearance each winter. But this time, I have been armed with an all natural and very effective daily moisturizer by Toronto's own Diane Lai. Yes, that's right. She's a mompreneur from Toronto!
 
Diane Lai offers a line of products designed to soothe and rejuvenate your skin. It can help protect and soothe certain conditions such as dry skin, eczema and inflammation. And it's great for those with sensitive skin, including infants and toddlers.
“Our mission is to create a natural and inspiring product range that offers exceptional quality,” says Lai, founder and president. “One of my objectives is to educate the public about the harmful toxins that many commercial skin products contain.” Lai’s commitment is a personal one—it was her child’s sensitive skin that inspired her to create the Diane Lai collection.
Diane's commitment to providing toxin-free moisturizer is evident when you read the ingredient label; organic grape seed oil, organic shea butter, wheat germ oil and organic lavender oil are just a few of the ingredients. They all combine to create a creamy moisturizer that smells great and absorbs quickly into the skin.
Rejuvenate is a daily moisturizer that helps you to maintain soft, youthful and healthy skin. It contains zero artificial colours and no artificial fragrances. A 100mL bottle retails for $45 when you purchase directly from DianeLai.com.

Soothe is great for those rough red patches on your face and body, or for itchy and uncomfortable skin. It's also great for your wee one to help soothe any irritation in the folds of the neck and is great for mild sunburn or insect bites. A 30 mL bottle of Soothe retails for $34 but a little goes a long way.

Top 5 Reasons Why I Love Diane Lai Moisturizer:
  1. It's made in Canada!
  2. It is packaged in BPA free plastic which can be recycled, with the exception of the pump.
  3. It is free from parabens, phthalates, petro chemicals and other harsh irritants.
  4. It smells great and is quickly absorbed into the skin.
  5. It works!
Diane Lai launched in 2010 but has already been featured in magazines as well as on Breakfast Television and CHCH news. Diane Lai moisturizers were also included in the GBK gift bags that were given to the 2011 Golden Globe Awards Nominees and Presenters. Yes, Natalie Portman and Angelina Jolie were able to sample it themselves. Here are some pictures taken of Diane Lai products and celebs during the Golden Globes.

You can order through DianeLai.com or shop at Moms to be and More here in Toronto, along with Blossom Bath & Body and Springy's in Hamilton. It will soon launch on The Shopping Channel in Canada, too. You can also keep up to date with the latest by following Diane Lai on Facebook as well as on Twitter @dianelai.

Disclosure: I was sent a bottle each of Diane Lai Rejuvenate and Diane Lai Soothe for the purpose of this review via Devon Consulting. Thoughts expressed in this post are my own honest opinions.

  1. When I asked my sister about my young niece’s reaction to the Soothe lotion, she told me that since her daughter had been suffering from quite a few flare-ups in the last little while, her skin was actually too raw and open for her to be able to try the lotion. She’s only three years old and with the amount of scratching she’d been doing, she found the lotion stung a bit. However, my sister was currently going through one of her own battles with eczema on her hands and used it herself. Her eczema isn’t as severe as her daughter’s, but she found that the lotion didn’t sting at all and relieved the itchiness for hours after she put it on!
