Active Natural Skincare: Lavido

7 Jan


Hi beauties!

Since I’ve been hearing a lot about Lavido, a natural face and body care company, I decided to check out two of the brand’s most popular products.

Starting out as a homegrown business, Lavido creates products combining raw, plant-based ingredients and purified mineral-rich waters.

Key ingredients in Lavido products include certified organic essential oils and active natural ingredients.

Replenishing Facial Serum

The Replenishing Facial Serum has a light texture that’s formulated with organic pomegranate seed oil, lemon myrtle, and cold-pressed mandarin oil (the citrus scent 🍋 smells great!).

The serum is designed to aid moisture restoration and retention. Used regularly, it’s clinically proven to show improvement in skin hydration, firmness, and elasticity.

For a healthy glow, I apply the serum as a primer before foundation. You can also combine it with a moisturizer before applying foundation.

Usage: Apply two drops to damp, clean skin in the morning or evening.

Alert Eye Cream

Lavido’s Alert Eye Cream has received a lot of good feedback, including recognition from Elle Magazine as one of the best beauty products for 2016.

My eyes tend to be puffy in the morning, so I was interested in trying a delicate, water-based eye cream.

This vegan-friendly and gluten-free eye cream is made with plant-based hyaluronic acid, cold-pressed avocado and pomegranate seed oils, and citrus extracts that help revive and soothe tired eyes.

So far, I love the light texture and the refreshing feeling around my eyes after I apply this cream! For an extra cooling effect, I leave the cream in the fridge to help quickly deflate eye bags.

Long-term results, based on clinical studies, include an increase in skin firmness and elasticity and smoothness.

Usage: Apply to fingertips and gently pat into the skin around the eye, including the eyelid. Allow to absorb before applying makeup.

Happy New Year, everyone! 🎉🎉🎉

Clarins Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert

24 May

Clarins Body Fit

Hi beauties! Have you been thinking about a new fitness routine for the summer?

If you want to up your game when it comes to a firm-looking body, Clarins has a new formula that targets three types of cellulite‑producing cells called adipocytes. These cells, which love sugars and fats (boo!), can grow larger and multiply when their storage capacity is maxed out.

Clarins Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert contains a plant extract called quince leaf that helps to switch things up and enhance the fat-storing and fat-burning capabilities of the cells that form cellulite.

The formula also includes caffeine, which is well-known to target the fat removal process, and other plant extracts like horse chestnut and hazelnut oil to smooth skin.

Some of the improvements you can look for with Body Fit are less spongy-looking skin after two weeks and firmer skin after four weeks. If you’re like me and you need instant gratification, I noticed my legs felt smoother after applying the quick-absorbing cream gel just a few times.

To shift your body contouring into high gear, Body Fit also comes with a Self-Massage Body Contouring Method guide with specific massage directions to smooth your legs and thighs, reduce the look of cellulite, and refine hips, stomach, and buttocks.

Although I try to eat right and work out regularly, applying this anti-cellulite treatment in the morning and night makes me feel like I’m getting a “leg up” on healthy-looking skin this summer.
