La Mav: review and giveaway

Now that I'm in my final month of pregnancy and am feeling constantly tired, I figured I need all the help I can get in terms of my skincare regime to make me look and feel better about myself. Lucky for me, the lovely people at La Mav sent me this beautiful box of products to trial and review.
You should know by now that I'm always looking for new natural, organic lines to test out and I'm happy to inform you that La Mav products are guaranteed certified organic, ethical, sustainable, safe and environmentally conscious. Every single ingredient that goes into La Mav products has been carefully selected to deliver visible results
First up, I'd like to just say that I absolutely LOVE the La Mav's Gentle and Clean range which is formulated especially for dry/ mature/ sensitive/ normal/ tired skin. Not only do the products work, they are extremely gentle on the skin. 

The Hydra Calm Cleansing Creme does a great job of removing impurities and even makeup but what I like most about it is how my skin feels so soft and clean afterwards. The Jojoba Beads and Argan Oil Exfoliating Scrub is gentle enough that I've been using it every couple of days to soothe and revitalise my skin. I normally skip the toner step in my beauty regime, but in the last few weeks, I have been religiously spraying the Rosa Damascena Hydrating Mist on after cleansing. And how lovely it is to use this beautiful smelling mist to prep my skin to absorb my day/night cream!
I was also given the chance to trial La Mav's award winning Bio-A7 Firming Eye Lotion - a super lightweight cream that is absorbed almost as quickly as I can pat it around my eyes. It promises to reduce dark circles and puffiness and it must work because I'm constantly being told how radiant and bright I look, even on days when I feel like absolute hell. So I am very happy with it!

On the same note, I also have the Vit-C Advanced Nightly Repair Nectar to thank for all the lovely compliments I've been receiving. I would describe this product as a supercharged facial repair oil pumped full of the goodness of Vitamin C that smells light and lemony. I massage a couple of drops once daily before my night cream. Once absorbed it does not feel at all oily and leaves my skin lovely and bright. Bonus: it is suitable to use on stretch marks and scars as well!

It's giveaway time! La Mav is giving one lucky reader the chance to win all the products that I have reviewed in this post, namely the:

Rosa Damascena Hydrating Mist
Jojoba-Beads and Argan Oil Exfoliating Scrub
Hydra Calm Cleansing Crème
Vit-C Advanced Nightly Repair Nectar
Bio-A7 Firming Eye Lotion
Total value: $215.85

My biggest skincare concern has got to be sticking to my routine... properly! It's so hard for me to pull myself out of bed if I've settled for the night when I forget about my make up. I know if I don't cleanse and do my moisture routine properly, I'll have one or two surprised in the morning plus those oh so lovely dry patches on my nose and between my brows that make applying foundation a nightmare! So if I'm ever just 'too lazy', I definitely pay for it the next day..

These products sound absolutely wonderful! I particularly love the Rosa Damascena Hydrating Mist - especially as it has such a divine scent.

Tracy said...

These products sound great Trish. I like your Facebook page and will head over and like the La Mav page too. I also follow your blog.
Enjoy your last month of the pregnancy. It is such a wonderful time with even better to come.

Iv had to face the scary fact that my skin is not as youthful looking now that Im in my 30s and it really needs some love and tlc to look and feel its best.
Thanks for the great giveaway, hope your resting your baby bump :)

Kelsey Price said...

Another lovely giveaway! I find in the winter months my skin gets dried out quite easily & it's difficult to find a hydrating & moisturising product that doesn't leave my skin greasy or clogged feeling.

My dry skin drives me a little crazy, especially when it eats up all my foundation by the end of the day! This beautiful skincare would solve that problem, I'm sure.

That is one fabulous giveaway! Well done!

Loz said...

These sound lovely, my eye area is so sensitive that even products formulated for sensitive skin often aren't for me either... would love to give this one a go. I think due to that fact my eyes are aging a lot quicker than the rest of me! :) Follow your FB, GFC & Bloglovin' :)

I have combination skin which is so frustrating that parts of my skin are dry and parts are so oily :(

Christina Lowry said...

My biggest concern is not knowing where to start. Since having my two babes my skin is much more sensitive and much drier. There are so many products on the market that I get a little overwhelmed when I start looking. I think about trying out some new products, but I don't want to waste money on things that don't work or upset my skin. Would love a chance to try something that is organic and gentle. Would love to glow and loose the puffy eyes (because even at 17 months, my little one is still feeding twice a night!) :)

Susannah said...

Hi Trishie. Great to see this natural skin care brand. What a treat for you to be able to try out all of these wonderful products. I'm glad you're showing something suitable for dry skin because it seems like you hear more about products suitable for oilier skin. Take care :)

My biggest skincare concern is my skin allergies. Some products claim to be all natural or they are expensive products that claim to be the best for ppl with sensitive skin, but in my journey to great skincare I have yet to really find something that doesn't make me break out in hives or make my skin worse with oily tones and extra zits then before I tried the product. I would be excited to try this. I trust your take on it and it would be so amazing to win it and try for free to see if it works with my fair, sensitive, and delicate skin. Thanks for sharing!

Christina Dragan said...

My major skincare concerns are dark under eye circles and very dry skin.
