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! 🎉🎉🎉

Make it Raw

10 May

Taking organic beauty to a new level, Carol Alt has developed a raw beauty line called RAW Essentials incorporating pure, nourishing ingredients essential for healthy-looking skin.

The former supermodel and raw food enthusiast launched the collection after making her own products at home for years using nothing but raw ingredients. According to Alt, raw ingredients are better for the complexion because they allow the skin to absorb antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids.

RAW Essentials products use only active, natural, and completely synthetic-free ingredients. This means the products are free of chemicals like petroleum, sulfates, and detergents that may cause cancer. A unique low temperature manufacturing process also guarantees product freshness and retains the balance that is crucial to creating healthy skin. Continue reading
