If y’all remember this post here from a few months back I was super excited to introduce you to this company! I’ve been using bits and pieces for some time now and I wanted to share my thoughts on La Mav with you and if you stick around, La Mav is sponsoring a pretty awesome giveaway for Hairspray and Highheels readers along with a discount code! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the brand I’ll give you a bit of their back story and then we can get on with the good stuff! For the record, I have combination skin which during these summer months has been leaning more on the dry side rather than oily.
‘La Mav Organic Skin Science® came into being after years of research, focusing on beautifully blending ancient natural wisdom and modern science. La Mav’s age defying results are inspired by skin science and delivered through nature to unmask your natural inherent beauty.’ La Mav is committed to educating and increasing awareness about the importance of natural and organic living that is good for you, good for the planet and good for generations to come. The idea behind their company is truly inspiring! I think it’s super important that we are well educated on the benefits of organic skincare especially since most are products that are being directly applied to our face and absorbed. Some products out today have some pretty scary ingredients list so it’s really comforting that the products found on La Mav’s ingredient list aren’t scary at all!
DNA PHYTO-GUARD PINK CLAY MASK // a super hydrating clay mask that removes surface dirt, impurities and toxins from your skin. This mask has almost no noticeable scent which is something I always look for when picking a mask because I tend to shy away from any with a strong, and crazy scent since you’re going to have to keep it on for 10-15 minutes. I loved that. It’s rich with anti-oxidants that help re-hydrate your skin while it gently exfoliates. After just the first use I could see some action in that my skin appeared brighter. Once you remove the mask with a bit of warm water you’re left with soft and smooth skin. I have been using it once a week for a few months and in combination with my other products you can definitely tell the difference. I’ve been working hard to even out my skin tone and this mask has played a huge role in that. This is also a great mask to use after sun exposure and really prevent any usual drying out that comes with that, I love using it after a long workout in the sun!
PURE HEMPSEED OIL // I think finding the perfect oil for your skin is something that a lot of people today struggle with. There is so much information out there on argan oil that all of these other amazing oils seem to take a backseat. Even myself, I always seemed to stick to argan oil since it was so well liked. La Mav helped me to branch out and actually fall in love with a different type of oil. “Hempseed oil is a super nourishing base nectar that contains essential proteins as well as Omega 3 and 6 to moisturize and nourish the skin. Hempseed oil is easily absorbed by the skin to strengthen the moisture barrier, promoting a well-nourished and smooth appearance. Hempseed oil helps prevent the visible signs of aging.” This oil is super moisturizing and it absorbs super quick so you don’t feel greasy or look oily after using it. I use it in the morning before my moisturizer and after I get out of the shower to really lock in moisture. There’s no scent that I can pick up on and it applies almost like a dry body oil would.
WRINKLE-DEFENSE & SKIN BRIGHTENING DAY FLUID // this mattifying day fluid is a godsend to anyone with oily skin. I mentioned above that I have been leaning mostly towards the dry side of my combination skin but all through Spring when I started using this I was super oily for whatever reason and this worked wonders when I applied it before makeup, I found that I wouldn’t even need a primer because this gave my skin that matte look that I desired and it stayed that way all day. It reduces shine almost immediately and leaves your skin ready for the rest of your products. Evens out your skin tone while providing a brightening effect. If you’re someone who finds themselves super oily, prone to fine lines, and pigmentation this is a product you definitely want to pick up.
JOJOBA-BEADS & ARGAN OIL EXFOLIATING SCRUB // I have a serious obsession with scrubs, there is just something about them that after you use it you feel like you are super cleansed. This scrub is super cool because not only does it have cleansing properties but it also tones in a luxurious spa like & gentle way. After using the scrub your skin is left with it’s natural glow. While exfoliating it removes excess sebum, impurities and dead skin cells. I feel like after you use this your pores appear dramatically smaller which is something I long for. It’s ideal for sensitive, dry, and mature skin. Gentle enough to use daily and super great for after sun exposure. I use it every other day and have been for months and I am hard pressed to find anything wrong with it. I also find that it diminishes redness so any rosacea sufferers would benefit from it as well.
Overall, I was extremely pleased with the La Mav products that I tried. If I had to pick the scrub would definitely be my all time favorite! They’re a super affordable brand with a great philosophy.
