ADOVIA Moisturizing Day Cream Review


Hi loves!

I hope you all are enjoying whatever is left of the summer! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m definitely over this heat! lol It’s been so hot this past week, at least 95 degrees out here!

So I was contacted by Tomoson to do a review on the ADOVIA Moisturizing Day Cream. The company is called ADOVIA Mineral Skin Care. It’s for all skin care types and their main ingredients are made with the Dead Sea Minerals, Aloe Vera and Chamomile.

 Their motto:

ADOVIA is a unique skin care line, combining natural ingredients with modern science to formulate an effective blend of minerals and the finest herbal ingredients nature has to offer. The vital nutrients, anti-oxidants and minerals present in ADOVIA products are responsibly gathered at the place closest to the soul of Mother Earth- The Dead Sea.

ADOVIA mineral-based products work to restore your skin’s natural inner balance, allowing it to renew and rebuild itself to achieve visibly smoother, healthier and younger looking skin. Your skin cells are replenished with vital nutrients, resulting in a naturally smooth, rejuvenated and healthy complexion. Take your skin and soul on a journey to the world’s oldest and largest natural spa- The Dead Sea- with ADOVIA mineral skin care.

Their claims:

Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Day Cream for all skin types. Moisturize and protect your skin with ADOVIA’s quick absorbing and non-greasy, daytime moisturizer. This unique cream quenches your skin’s thirst with natural, deep hydration that lasts all day giving you a more radiant, firmer and smoother complexion. It also helps protect skin from harmful effects of the sun and daily polluntants without clogging your pores. It contains an active complex of Dead Sea minerals for natural moisture balance, Grape Seed oil for quick hydration and Chamomile extract and Aloe Vera to calm and sooth your skin.

MY REVIEW:

I’m usually a skeptical when it comes to trying new moisturizers that help with my dry skin. However, when I first opened the package, it seemed very creamy and rich. It smells like something you would wear to the beach! It’s very refreshing and has a very strong scent of aloe vera and a hint of chamomile. When I applied it to my face, it felt refreshing and after blending onto my face, it wasn’t sticky or greasy. After using it for 2 weeks, I really do feel a difference in my face. It felt more soft, less dry and more plump.

I definitely love the packaging! It has a very sophisticated look especially with the silver cover. I’m known to like anything that has to do with the color silver! 🙂

I give this 5 stars out of 5 stars. I would definitely purchase this later in the future and it does take a long time to finish!

Until next time! 🙂

 

 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

When I first saw this, I was a bit intimidated due to seeing it green. However, after I did try it, I loved it! It’s not too sweet, healthy and it does fill you up. I like the fact that they do have cashews, sunflower seed kernels and dates.

I don’t have an exact picture of it because I was so intrigued that I ate it before I could take a picture of it!

Lastly, I received a Serengetee Fabric Swatch.

My Verdict:

I honestly wouldn’t order another Conscious Box just because I can’t use all of the products I received. I did like Annie’s Bunny Grahams, the Raw Rev 100 bar, the Crystal towelettes, and the Weleda shampoo and conditioner.
