The Luvalla simple 3-step system hydrates, balances, nourishes and protects normal, combination or oily skin. Cleanse, tone and moisturize to get fresh, amazing, silky-smooth skin from the purest natural plant extracts.
STEP 1: CLEANSE – Gentle Foaming Cleanser is a light, frothy cleanser that thoroughly removes daily toxins, impurities, and makeup without irritating your eyes. Potent ingredients, such as Bilberry and Lotus Flower, contain flavonoids that have antioxidant properties more powerful than vitamin C in fighting free radicals, the number one cause of aging skin. This deep-cleansing formula leaves your skin feeling abundantly hydrated and squeaky clean.
STEP 2: TONE – Rejuvenating Eucalyptus Toner effectively clears away congestion in your skin reducing pore size without the damaging effects of alcohol. Formulated with organic plant extracts, including Eucalyptus and Sage, this toner invigorates and protects your skin while helping to eliminate and minimize breakouts.
STEP 3: MOISTURIZE – Balancing Day/Night Cream is a light moisturizer that utilizes the antiseptic and astringent properties of Thyme, Clove Flower and Cinnamon Bark to purify your skin and clear congestion. The powerful anti-aging properties of Argan Oil, which has twice the vitamin E of olive oil, reduces fine lines and wrinkles while boosting your skin’s natural collagen production. This cream uses Palm Kernel Oil to provide hydration and leave your skin feeling silky-smooth with a matte finish.
My thoughts -
This is a great product. I love, love, love the cobalt blue bottles. It makes my bathroom look like a spa table instead of a messy counter. I liked the products as well. They have a light natural scent. At first I was a bit skeptical of the cleanser and toner – were these natural and “pretty” bottles strong enough to make me feel clean? First I tried the cleanser. You pour out a bit into your hand – it is thin and clear. When you add a bit of water it lathers just a tiny bit. Yes, I know that the big suds mean detergent and that is bad for me, but would this clean my face? I was very pleasantly surprised. My skin did not feel taught or dry and it was soft and clean. Next the toner. I like a toner that I can see results (i.e. I want my cotton ball to be dirty to show it pulled icky stuff off my skin). This has a pleasant eucalyptus scent. It did not feel harsh or sting….which is good….and when I looked at my cotton ball – it must have gotten the dirt of the day and oils off my skin – it was dirty! yeah! I really liked that again, my skin did not feel tight or itchy or over cleansed. Next the lotion…..it sunk right in effortlessly and it was not greasy at all. My skin actually felt soft and clean. The scent of the moisturizer was light – but a bit flowery for me, so I might try the Age Defying cream as it looks Vitamin E based……which I love.
I also LOVE that they give you the aromatherapy benefits…like the toner raises spirits and the calms the mind and uplifts…….
These items are not cheap, but they are worth every penny in my opinion. Also, beauty products are hard to know if you will love them before you take the plunge. I really like that this company has a no fail guarantee:
“We believe that you will love our products so much that we are proud to offer our 100% LUV IT guarantee. If you are dissatisfied for any reason with a L’uvalla product that you purchased from our site, you may return it within 45 days of the ship date for an exchange, a refund or a credit.”
The site proudly displays that they are cruelty free, not tested on animals, 100% natural and part of the green products alliance. Their site has pages that tell you about natural vs organic, aromatherapy, etc – so you don’t have to surf the web to find out what something means. They also work with Susan Komen, the Wildlife Trust and Make a Wish.
Another cool thing is you can sign up for their newsletter and specials…..when you sign up you get a welcome email that talks about the “Top 10 Toxic Ingredients Found in Personal Care” – it was a bit eye opening.
This one is a thumbs up….so use your coupon code to try it – or better yet – win it!
