Green Beauty Story : La Mav Organic Skin care (+Giveaway!)

la mav organic skin care reviews, beauty blogger los angeles reviews, organic skincare blog

This gorgeous box knocked my door a few weeks ago. Besides the fact it is extremely pretty, it has also invited me to the organic skin care world of La Mav. Today I am going to share my thoughts and observations on a few products from La Mav organic skin care line. In fact, I am also going to share with you all a chance to meet La Mav in person – yes yes, new giveaway time! Get comfortable and patient, it is going to be a long story with a dessert at the end!

La Mav is 100% vegan, certified cruelty free and natural beauty awards winning brand from Australia that offers women effective, natural science driven solutions for skincare, makeup and body care. All of the products are plant-based and free from harsh chemicals, parabens, fillers, talc, mineral oil, artificial colors and fragrances. La Mav has a verity of skin care series that aim to meet different skin concerns, types and conditions with an individual approach. These series are color coded, that is always a huge plus for a new customer navigation (speaking from my own experience, obviously). I am going to introduce you to three different skincare series of La Mav today – oily skin, skin brightening series and mature skin (anti-aging) line. These all make a perfect care package for Oily/Combination skin that basically meets all these mentioned issues at some level.

la mav organic skin care for oily and acne prone skin review, tlv birdie blog, beauty blogger los angeles, tlv birdie blog

Green color coded line of La Mav is meant to help oily  / combination skin type find it’s harmony and balance in this environmentally challenged life. It offers a complex of 4 plant-based products for a full skin regimen, where “purify and clean” are the keywords. To start with, here are two essential products to stick to – cleanser and toner.

la mav organic skin care review, organic cleanser for oily skin blog reviews, la mac organic facial cleanser review, tlv birdie blog organic beauty blogger, beauty blogger los angeles

Sweet Orange Foaming Cleanser is a soap free cleanser with some amazing ingredients in it’s list, like Ginseng, Sugar Cane and Papaya extract that gently exfoliate, purify and support the renewal of imbalanced skin. It has a gel consistency that quickly turns into bubbly foam and wipes away excess oil, makeup and impurities. Very nice, refreshing scent and a comfortable feeling after each use. If you are still using drugstore cleansers for oily skin that dry out every skin cell of your poor face, you can easily put an end to that sad story with this cleanser. I am not having oily skin any longer (basically, since I stopped harassing my face with those just mentioned drugstore cleansers), more of a normal/ combination / a tiny bit capricious skin, but I am really enjoying this cleanser as some mild exfoliation on a daily basis never killed nobody.

Among ingredients: Aloe Vera leaf juice, Goji Berry extract, Sugar Cane extract, Calendula oil, Witch Hazel oil, Kakadu Plum extract, Green Tee extract, Rosemary leaf extract, Orange extract, Lemon extract, Vitamin A, Pro-Vitamin B5, essential oils of Orange Sweet, Palmarosa, Grapefruit + more.

la mav organic skin care, tlv birdie blog, facial toner for oily skin review, organic skin care blog reviews, natural beauty blogger

Purifying toner with this type of ingredients list is definitely something worth a try if you skin needs a good lesson of behavior! Formulated with White Tea, Grape seed extract and Bilberry extract (not to mention Aloe Vera, Grapefruit and Lavender), it acts effectively to keep the natural skin’s PH balance under control and refine the pores structure. Light floral scent and a very pleasant cooling feeling! Keeps the skin hydrated, clean and glowing naturally. Good stuff indeed! For a better effect, keep in a cool place.

Among ingredients: Aloe Vera leaf juice, Lavender flower water, Bilberry fruit extract, Orange oil, Sugar Cane extract, Grapefruit peel oil, Grape seed extract, Lemon fruit extract, Lavender oil etc.

la mav organic skin care anti-aging series, organic skincare for mature skin, tlv birdie blog, organic skincare blogger los angeles

Pink color coded line of La Mav organic skincare series is filled with vitamins, anti-oxidants and naturally-derived active ingredients that mature skin can only benefit from. Sweet talk to fine lines and age defense services provided.

la mav skin care skin brightening day fluid review, organic beauty blogger los angeles, tlv birdie blog

Wrinkle Defence & Skin Brightening Day Fluid is formulated with Licorice (controls sebum), Melissa extract (toning effect), famous Hyaluronic acid (extra moisture) with a bunch of other pure ingredients that act as a super food for imbalanced skin. It has a great mattifying result and would work great for oily / combination / mature skin types and on un-even skin tone. On a long run, I believe it will make some nice work on pigmentation and wrinkles (that ingredients list is really promising!). Absorbs really fast and leaves such a smooth, matte-looking skin!

Among ingredients: Rose flower water, Willow Bark extract, Aloe Vera leaf juice, Hyaluronic acid, Peppermint leaf extract, Ylang Ylang flower oil, Goji fruit extract, Licorice root extract etc.

la mav organic skin care omega 3 night repair cream review, organic skincare blog reviews, natural beauty blogger, tlv birdie blog, beauty and skincare blogger los angeles

Omega-3 Advanced Nightly Repair Creme – to take good care of the dehydrated skin during the beauty sleep time. So they say, it is the best time to start looking into anti-aging products in the middle 20’s. I think I am exactly at this stage of my life when all the emotions I ever felt start to appear on my face (you can tell I smile a lot!). So, to help prevent early aging symptoms (my soul is old, it’s pretty obvious, but I’d want to keep my face young though!), I’ve started being more curious about age defense skin products. Even though I don’t feel that my skin is dry, I know it’s a matter of important elements and necessary vitamins. This cream contains Raspberry seed oil and Chlorella Vulgaris extract that support skin’s natural barrier and help skin look smoother. Comforting texture says “good night” to the face, neck and décolleté area.

Among ingredients: Jojoba seed oil, Aloe Vera leaf juice, Rose flower water, Marula seed oil, Raspberry seed oil, Avocado oil, Cocoa seed butter, Lavender oil, Grapefruit peel oil, Matricaria flower extract etc.

la mav organic skin care reviews, skin brightening organic skincare brand, tlv birdie blog

Yellow color coded series are formulated especially for the skin that needs some brightening action. Any condition of skin with age spots and uneven, tired, mature, stressed, pigmented skin. La Mav treats these concerns in the most natural way.

la mav organic skin care vitamin C nightly repair nectar review, organic skincare blog reviews, tlv birdie blog, skincare blogger los angeles

Vitamin C Advanced Nightly Repair Nectar is another special night treatment that is kind of more down my alley. I am a big fan of oil serums, and my skin loves them too! This nectar (the exact word to describe it’s gorgeous melting texture) has a light citrus scent and ability provide skin with the anti-aging benefits and skin lightening actions supported by Vitamin C and Rosehip Oil. It leaves a silky layer on the skin and helps it to recover during the night. Perfect as a treatment for sun-damaged skin, uneven skin tone, pigmentation issues and visible fine lines.

Among ingredients: Jojoba seed oil, Evening Primrose oil, Apricor Kernel oil, Acai fruit oil, Borage seed oil, Lemongrass oil, Murrh oil, Tamanu seed oil, Rosehip seed oil, Camellia seed oil etc.

la mav organic skin care anti dark circle eye gel, organic eye cream blog reviews, tlv birdie blog, organic skincare blog

Anti Dark Circle & Ultra Firm Eye Gel performs as an essential part of skin care routine where eye area plays an important role and should never ever be forgotten. If you can relate to dark circles, puffiness or fine lines concerns, this is your turn to show some support to your skin! This is a light gel with a cooling effect (better to keep it in a cold place!) that absorbs pretty fast and leaves only a protective layer on the skin. Aims to reduce puffiness and appearance of dark circles with Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid in it’s formula, as well as brightening Rosehip oil. Would make a great Mom’s day gift for sure!

Among ingredients: Rose distillate, Aloe Vera leaf juice, Melissa leaf extract, Vitamin C, Tamanu nut oil, Sea Buckthorn seed oil, Vitamin E, Peppermint leaf extract, Rosehip oil, vegetable Glycerin etc.

la mav organic bb cream, natural bb cream review, tlv birdie blog, natural beauty blogger los angeles, ecofriendly beauty blogger usa

As I’ve told you in the very beginning of this post (you’re my hero if you’ve made it till this point!), La Mav has not only skincare line, but an organic makeup series as well. This little number – Organic BB Creme – is my total favorite! I wasn’t really sure if I liked it at the very beginning as it’s consistency was unfamiliar to me, but I found the way to make friends with it. Best friends, actually. So the point is, it’s not very liquid-ish. With that being said, it’s better to apply it when your moisturizer / oil serum is not fully absorbed on the face, then it lays down just right! 100% vegan, talc (!!) and other chemicals free, infused with Vitamin C and natural sunscreen. It has a long moisturizing effect and matte finish, proper coverage and anti-aging properties. My daily go-to without a doubt.

la mav anti-aging minerals, la mav organic makeup review, la mav sunkissed bronzer review, organic makeup bronzer review, tlv birdie blog

What can ever beat a light sun-kissed look?! Rhetorical. La Mav has a blissful mineral makeup experience to offer in order to achieve that desired sun glow – Sunkissed Bronzer + Vegan Kabuki Brush. This duo performs great together, emphasizing the cheekbones, nose and chin with naturally-looking bronze shimmer. The bronzer shade is not too intense for my relatively-light skin tone, which is definitely a plus.

la mav makeup review, la mav organic skincare tinted lip treatment berry review, organic lip gloss blog reviews, tlv birdie blog

What I like the most about natural tinted lip glosses is a) amount of hydration and b) soft, slightly colored finish. La Mav Tinted Lip Treatment is a great example of this! I’ve tried it in “Berry” and loved it’s tempting dark pink shade. It is also available in “Nude” and “Sheer Pink”. Created with Castor seed oil, Shea butter, Jojoba seed oil and other natural moisturizing sources.
