L'uvalla Certified Organic Skin Care Review and Giveaway 8/18: CLOSED WINNER

CONGRATULATIONS TO....

KIMBERLY!

An e-mail has been sent to Kimberly and she has 48 hours to respond before a new winner is chosen via random.org.

Thanks to all who entered!

One thing I've learned in life is it's never too early nor too late to care for your skin.  I really wished someone would have taught me to take better care of myself when I was younger, getting those tans and not properly cleaning my skin.  I also had no idea how toxic some of the every day products we use are to our bodies and skin until I started to research more about organic products.   


As with natural products like supplements and vitamins, it can be a confusing area to understand since some abuse the terms "natural" and "organic."  There are different levels a business can use to make those claims and just because a product has "natural" or "organic" on the label/package, it's not necessarily true they are 100% pure and natural.  I sort of see it with the bread industry with wheat and whole wheat ingredients.  I used to buy wheat bread thinking it was better for me but I eventually learned most bread is made of wheat anyway and has been stripped of its nutrients.  Whole wheat is what to look for in bread products.  


L'uvalla Age-Defying Hydrating Milk Cleanser Review




Back to organics and my introduction to a complimentary product by L'uvalla.   I had never heard of L'uvalla until I saw it on another blogger's site and I became very interested as I pursuit ways to improve my skin and retain it's youthfulness.  The L'uvalla Certified Organic Hydrating Milk Cleanser is 100% natural.  It's created with a blend of organic plant ingredients that gently cleanses and removes make up while hydrating the skin.  I liked how it felt as I massaged it into my skin.  The ingredients call for a quarter size amount but I used a little less and still had plenty to wash my face.  That's a bonus to me as it means it will last a long time.  It didn't suds up like some cleanser and it was thick enough to stay put while I massaged it in.  It rinsed off effortlessly and didn't leave a sticky feel or film.  


I've been using the L'uvalla Hydrating Milk Cleanser for over a week and a half and really like how it feels.  My skin is softer and I've stopped using my Proactive as much and not noticed more break outs which is another plus.  I also like the pairing up of natural products to produce a product that not only cleans but also has other properties such as aromatherapy.  It's a great all in one product for cleansing, moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant while soothing and calming the skin.


I think my next product that I'll purchase will be the Balancing Eucalyptus Toner to help minimize break outs and give my Proactive a rest.  I like the idea of natural products to treat and protect my skin.


Ingredients


Natural spring water, cetearyl alcohol, cetearyl glucoside, sunflower seed oil, cocamidopropyl betaine, hazel seed oil, xanthan gum, Lotus flower extracts, orange peel oil, lavendin oil, Matricaria flower extract, Meadowsweet extract, Passionflower extract, Ginseng root extract, Palmarosa oil


How it works


Hydrating Milk Cleanser is a vegan cleanser formulated with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents that moisturizes, cleanses, calms and soothes the skin.  Each ingredient provides a different action for the skin and altogether, it's a great product priced at $34.99 that lasts three months.


Overall, I would recommend the product as it's not harsh, is effective and left my skin feeling soft and moisturized.  My skin type is normal/dry with breakouts and it has responded well to date.
