While I like the idea of things being natural, sometimes it seems like you can't have both natural and effective. In the past, products I've purchased that were labeled as natural or organic really didn't deliver other than sometimes (sometimes not) having a pleasant scent.
That has all changed for me! I've told you about Ipsy before, which sends me five products each month to try for a flat $10 a month. I love Ipsy but now I love it even more for introducing me to this incredible new moisturizer! (P.S. You can get your own Ipsy Glam Bag here.)
The brand is called Jivi and according to them, they are "passionate about making truly natural skin care that positively impacts your health and the world." The Moisturizer with sun protection in the Lavender variety definitely exceeded any expectations I had. The cream itself is green. Yes, green - which feels a little weird putting green stuff on your face but as you will find out, the green actually corrects redness in your skin. This moisturizer is so organic that it is actually edible! You can pronounce every ingredient on the label. And I love the way my skin feels after I apply it! It's lightweight and just FEELS healthy, like it's quenching my skin's thirst. Ingredients like shea butter and cucumber moisturize, while green micro algae and zinc oxide help protect your skin from the sun.
As if this product wasn't amazing enough, Jivi's prodcuts are cruelty free and made without animal products. AND when you purchase one of their products, they donate a meal to someone in need. So now your skin feels amazing from their product, your bank account feels amazing because they are remarkably budget friendly, and now your conscience feels great because you actually helped someone in need.
I've enclosed the Amazon link for the moisturizer as I found that while it's still directly from Jivi, you actually save a couple bucks on shipping if you order it through Amazon. Shipping is crazy fast (I got mine in 2 days!) and they even included some samples of other products, as well as a card showing where my meal for someone in need was provided.
All in all, I cannot say enough good things about Jivi and specifically, their moisturizer. Give it a try and let me know how much you love it!
