La Mav Organic Skin Science, A Review

If you understand the struggle of having sensitive skin and still desperate in search of suitable beauty and skincare products, you might want to check out La Mav Organic Skin Science. Developed in Australia, La Mav products are free from harsh chemicals such as fillers, talc, sulphates, GM ingredients, parabens, mineral oils, phthalates and artificial colours, and fragrances.

Gentle to the skin and environment, La Mav products are purely plant-based and its ingredients are derived from natural sources. In addition to their concept of producing natural based skincare and beauty products, La Mav are also certified organic and certified cruelty free. Indeed it made me feel so close to nature every time I perform my beauty routine. Now, I do not have to worry about having flare ups or break outs due to the harsh ingredients found in conventional skincare products.

After years of research and development in the Australian laboratories, La Mav delivered its own clinically proven effective skincare range based on the 3 Tier Formula™ which consists of Active Constituents , Specialty Oils , and Base Ingredients. On top of that, La Mav specializes in developing organic makeup and body essentials as well.

From its skincare range, I could easily found the products that suit my skin best while browsing their website. The user-friendly website assisted me in the quest for the most suitable product for my skin by navigating me to my skin type category where a group of products was listed below it. From the selection of products under the oily skin category, I picked the Cranberry Bio Exfoliating Scrub and Purifying Toner.

Cranberry Bio Exfoliating Scrub
Having bamboo and ascophyllum nodosum (brown seaweed) extract with organic cranberry seeds as the active ingredients, you can rely on these well-known natural exfoliants to do an amazing job at removing dead skin cells as well as surface dirt and impurities. Aside from the exfoliating properties possessed by the three active ingredients mentioned above, they also have other side benefits for our skin! Bamboo is known for its natural richness in silica, a mineral that aids in the regeneration of collagen. Thus, this gave bamboo its anti-aging properties. Both bamboo and brown seaweed also has anti-acne activity by reducing the likelihood of an inflammation to occur.

La Mav Cranberry Bio Exfoliating Scrub also contains:

  • Natural Fruit Acids from Bilberry, Sugar Maple, Lemon, Orange and Sugar Cane and natural Lactic Acid actively exfoliates and purifies by removing excess oil and traces of impurities
  • Bamboo Powder and Cranberry Seeds effectively exfoliate to remove dead skin cells while improving circulation and overall skin condition
  • Wheat Amino Acids, Kakadu Plum extract and Goji extract deliver long lasting anti-aging benefits
  • Cassia alata leaf extract protects cellular DNA from UVA and UVB and supports natural repair of cells

Exfoliation is an important part of my skincare regimen. I perform it as much as three times weekly as my skin is prone to rapid pore clogging. The removal of dead skin cells enables new cell regeneration as well as achieving smooth and radiant skin. Just like a facial massage, exfoliation increases blood circulation too.

My experience with La Mav Cranberry Bio Exfoliating Scrub:
I was very eager to try this product on my skin as I was very amazed with the combination of the natural active ingredients. These natural exfoliants worked together wonderfully to give me a smooth and clean face. The scent was very pleasant and I fell in love with it once I opened the cap. Just a small amount of exfoliator on your palm, you’re good to go! The texture of the product was rough, as the exfoliating beads were quite coarse. I would definitely prefer it to be finer, as my skin became slightly reddish probably because it was sensitive to the abrasion during the exfoliation. However, the outcome was indeed amazing. My face definitely feels smoother and more glowing. It looks brightened as well after the dead skin removal. My face was definitely prepped for the next step- moisturizing and serum application, enabling sufficient nourishment for rejuvenation. This exfoliator did an excellent job in dead skin removal, but it did fairly well in purifying clogged pores, probably because of the coarse beads.

Purifying Toner
Grapeseed extract, White Tea, and Bilberry extract have common benefits. They are anti-oxidants, anti-ageing, anti-acne, and provides UV protection to the skin. This toner functions to refine pores and maintain skin pH. Pore refining is important to prevent the trapping of dirt and impurities which will eventually lead to blackheads/whiteheads formation or acne breakouts. Maintaining skin pH ensures a balanced skin pH which is unfavourable to bacterial growth.

Purifying Toner also contains:
  • Amino Acids conditions and optimises skin for maximum absorption of daily moisturiser
  • Natural Fruit Enzymes and Lemon Balm extract purifies, exfoliates, and balance skin’s pH
  •   Aloe Vera extract and Rosa damascena instantly revitalise dull skin delivering a refreshed, hydrated, and healthy glow
  •   Waltheria Extract delivers visible results by evening out skin tone

My experience with La Mav Purifying Toner:
The scent of this product is wonderfully fresh and pleasant. Even though I was not used to having a toner in the form of a spray dispenser bottle, I actually find it convenient. Using a piece of cotton pad, I sprayed a reasonable amount of toner and I began patting my face. This toner purified my pores by removing debris, as seen on the white cotton pad. I definitely felt that my face was cleaner. So far, its ability to minimize pores had not shown visible results yet. This toner was also fairly good in controlling sebum production.

Overall, it was a great to experience the natural based products from La Mav. My skin has been nourished with the benefits from various natural ingredients formulated in the most convenient way. For more organic products from La Mav, do proceed to
