The Lavera line makes high-end organic skincare. This review covers their Lavera Mattifying Balancing Cream and Lavera Invigorating Cleaning Gel. I liked both, but the Mattifying Balancing Cream really stood out to me as an amazing product.
Mattifying Lavera Natural Cosmetics Faces Balancing Cream with Calendula Review
With a combination skin tone, you better believe I struggle with finding a moisturizing that isn’t overly oily. For a long time, I’ve used the affordable and widely beloved Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer. And the big deal about this post is that the Lavera Balancing Cream was so good it might one day replace my daily Neutrogena fix. I love the consistency of this lotion. The lotion gets absorbed immediately into my skin, which is not something Neutrogena does. (I think perhaps the “thickening agent” Xanthan Gum helped.) And my face never felt greasy or oily while wearing this moisturizer. Plus, it has a delicious citrus smell that is like a creamsicle. I don’t currently have this scent in any other beauty products, so it’s especially refreshing. My tip would be that a little does not go a long way, and that you have to be careful not to squeeze too much out because your face really will just absorb it all. But that also makes me very interested in seeing how dabs of this lotion might work on my elbows and ankles… hmm.
This is a good product for: If you have an oily face all over or in spots. This is truly a remarkable mattifying moisturizer that controls the oil in your face.
Lavera Invigorating Cleansing Gel (Oily & Combination) Review
This product boasts organic grape and ginkgo. I think it’s a fairly small portion (100ml, smaller than the length of a hand) for a high price. However, for those that need gentle cleansers, I know that paying more can be a no-brainer. I do like that this gel doesn’t get sudsy and I don’t think it’s stripping my face of oils or being harsh. It was a perfectly good cleanser, and I think the the results are in what I can’t see – I can’t see the dry patches that sometimes appear on my face on my chin.
This is a good product for: Those who notice their skin can sometimes be dry all over or in patches. One of the best ways to help your face is to then use a GENTLE cleanser just like the Lavera Invigorating Cleansing Gel.
