I tried out a scrub, a moisturizer and a cleanser. Day one, I started off with the Pomegranate Facial Scrub, which I really liked. Normally I find scrubs to be abrasive and painful but this was not. Little grains of pomegranate peel and seed work their magic, gently peeling away dead skin. Post scrub, I used the Moisturizing Cream for the face. I ADORED the moisturizer. It’s thick, easy to handle, and has this lovely perfumed scent that didn’t irritate my skin at all. The moisturizer is made of a bunch of essential oils that do wonders for the skin, including jojoba oil and calendula oil. Vitamin E is also a main ingredient and is a fantastic moisturizing agent. (And helps diminish wrinkles…yay!)
Day 2, I used the Carrot and Pomegranate Cleanser. Judging the product solely from its name, I was already liking it. Carrot is known to be an awesome moisturizer and pomegranate is a powerful antioxidant. These two ingredients together, are certain to kick dry skin’s scaly behind. All you gotta do is pump the stuff out, lather on and rinse off. I then proceeded to moisturize.
I kept up with the regime for the rest of the week and topped off my week with using the scrub instead of the cleanser. My end result: soft, healthy looking, clear, hydrated NOT DRY skin!
I love having companies like Lavido on our shelves, and when I get to hear more about its beginnings and meet their creators, I feel myself get more and more invested in the line. Ido Magal, who has a background in pharmacy and herbology, created the Baby Calendula Cream for his niece when she had a bad and incurable diaper rash. Ido’s cream made her good as new and thus Lavido was born. (Aw!) With some hard work and determination, the line flourished and expanded. He uses the finest ingredients harvested on his organic farm in Israel which are considered natural and follow European Standards for being organic. Even more so, Ido firmly believes that whatever you take from the Earth, you have to give back, thus all of the Lavido containers are made from recycled materials and are recyclable themselves.
Check out this video of a broadcast from Israel (no worries, subtitles are included!) to see more of Ido’s farm and a product that we will soon be adding to our shelves! 😛
So, if you find yourself having a skin-emergency, do your skin (and the environment!!!) a favor by trying out Lavido. 🙂
I think since you are my best friend, you should be telling me about these things sooner! Everything you write about sounds like it's amazing, and it makes me super jealous that you get to work with awesome products, while I sit in a office getting paper cuts! (Have anything for those btw!? ;] )
