When I look for a moisturizer, I look for something that uses natural ingredients, and that provides the benefits of a cream, in a light-weight, non-greasy lotion. I recently tried out Oleavine's Moisturizer + Rejuvenating Actives, and this meets my expectations on so many levels. First of all, the packaging is BEA-U-TIFUL, and unique in that you twist-up the pump-top.
So pretty, right? What's even better is the nature and benefit of the ingredients used in this moisturizer. Aside from being preservative free, paraben free, petroleum free, phthalate free, sulfate free, silicone free, cruelty free, gluten free, allergy free and non greasy, it uses several botanicals, plant stem cells and vitamins to lock in moisture while also improving the texture and tone of your skin. On top of that, Oleavine takes special care during the creation of this product through cold-processing. In brief, cold processing is much better when you use natural and organic ingredients because it preserves the quality of the ingredients, allowing them to do what they do. If things are refined and processed in heat, they are often damaged, and will not function as they would in nature. Plus, this moisturizer has a nice, clean scent which reminds me of a spa.
And, it is nice and creamy, making it easy to absorb. It doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy or slimy whatsoever. I normally give my moisturizer a few minutes to "settle" before I start putting my makeup on anyway, and I never have an issue when I use the Oleavine Moisturizer. While I would normally use this during the warmer months, I have found that it is keeping my skin hydrated, soft and smooth when I am traditionally battling the flakes at this point. Very impressed and pleasantly surprised by that!
Overall, this has been a wonderful addition to my skincare regimen, and I would
recommend it with 10 stars:
If you are interested in purchasing a pretty AND functional moisturizer, this Oleavine Moisturizer can be found on Amazon for $19.95, HERE. This price is reduced from the normal price of $39.99. There is no telling how long this price will last.
