Skin Saviour - Alva Natural Skincare♥

Alva Natural Skincare do some great products, and this has to be my favourite product that I have tried from the brand - Sanddorn Skin Oil. "Dermatological studies using Sanddorn Skin Oil the moisture level of the skin increased by 69% after 4 weeks use, while the depth of fine lines and wrinkles was reduced by 21%.
Sandorn Skin Oil accelerated the healing of light sunburn by 93% compared to untreated skin. In 66% of cases the red skin disappeared entirely within 24 hours." This is a fantastic rich oil for your skin, it increases the skins ability to retain moisture, it helps to firm the skin up and all while protecting your skin from all the nasty environmental aggressors. Like most oils it is a good product to include into your routine is you have any scars on your skin, from acne or even stretch marks on your body. It is great at helping my acne scars keep moisturised, so the skin doesn't flake and this helps them to heal better.

Although it is an oil, I have found on my combination skin (with an oily t-zone) it doesn't increase the amount of oil on my skin and make me look/feel greasy. It sinks in straight away, whilst you get the benefits of it being a super hydrating oil it really doesn't feel like you are applying an oil to the skin. Big thumbs up.

The picture below is how much I use for my whole face, you only need a little amount so it will last you a very long time.

Have a look at the ingrediants, no nasty stuff in here "buxus chinensis (jojoba oil), prunus dulcis (almond oil), hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn oil), tocopherol (vitamin E), citrus nobilis (mandarin oil), cymbopogon martini (palmarosa oil)". Alva Natural Skincare is dedicated to ensuring their products are free from parabens, SLS, EDTA or PEGs. PLUS they don't test on Animals, something a-lot more brands need to pay attention to. 

I'd love to try some of their other products from this line, have you tried any?
