So this month we’re looking at Lavender Luminosity Moisture Plus Lotion by Avalon Organics!
First of all, if you get this product, shake it up really good before you use it because the time it spends sitting on store shelves causes slight separation which isn’t uncommon with natural, organic, or waterproof products. I forgot this when I first put it on and it felt thick and chalky!
Now for the application:
You literally need only a dime size amount!
Next gently rub in hands then spread evenly over face and up the neck. Now due to the SPF (sunscreen) it will look a little bit pasty (which will set those with darker complexions on edge) but trust me it does soak in and disappear! After spreading, pat it in til your skin has completely absorbed it.
This product has that lovely, citrusy, lavender smell and is very light with a watery feel. It also has an SPF of 15 which is always a plus!
Now my skin is combination (oily/dry) that leans more towards dry; so unfortunately this product was just under the right amount of hydration for me. However, those with combination/oily to oily skin this product will be great. And Lavender is a soothing ingredient so it’s great for those who have a little sensitivity as well (this product also boasts that it’s hypoallergenic by the way).
Now I got mine here (yes I love Vitacost) but I’m sure you can find it wherever organic and natural products are sold.
Bare in mind that normally moisturizers come in 1fl. oz. sizes. Lets say you would normally pay around $7 for a decent moisturizer, with this one I paid about $1.66 an oz. (not including shipping); and since this is for day time moisture only (because of SPF) using the proper amount will make this product last months, possibly a year!
So if your skin is on the oily side I highly suggest giving this a whirl; however, if your skin is on the dry side like mine, hold off for something with a little more hydration.
Do you have a favorite moisturizer you can’t live without? Please share!
