Review: Savar Skincare

Savar Essential Cleansing Lotion 180ml $49*
Savar Essential Hydration Moisturiser 100ml $59*
Savar Luxury Face Wash 30ml $25*

These products were very kindly sent to me for review purposes from Savar a couple of weeks ago. I've been trying them out ever since and wanted a good chance to trial them and learn a little about the Savar brand before reviewing them. My honest opinion is given throughout and I am not being compensated for this review.

I chose the Essential Cleansing Lotion to cleanse with as my skin has been a little dry lately and although it caters to every skin type, I found it was perfect for my dry skin. The creamy consistency doesn't strip my skin of it's natural oils, in fact I feel it adds something to my skin. It is left feeling hydrated and ready to be toned (or in my case at night, ready to have a double cleanse with the Luxury Face Wash). I use one pump-full on dry skin morning and night, and massage into my skin. At night I do put it over top of my makeup and massage to loosen all of my daily face, then wash off with a warm cloth, not hot. I find that it does a great job of removing even stubborn eye makeup. I love it's subtle, citrus smell thanks to it's sweet orange extract because it reminds you that you are using something natural. It also contains New Zealand calendula, organic sunflower oil, cocoa butter and many other natural extracts that aim to soften, balance and gently purify. I am pleased with its pump packaging as it makes it quick and easy to dispense the right amount of product, keeps the product sealed and hygienic and it looks lovely on my bathroom shelf! I recommend this product if you like natural, creamy, non-foaming cleansers and/or you have dry skin.

I chose the Essential Hydration Moisturiser to help combat my dry, winter skin. The first thing I noticed about this product is the size, 100ml is two times the size of a regular moisturiser and so is great value. I use this after I cleanse with the Essential Cleansing Lotion, I skipped toner because I wanted to use only this brand but lightly misted my skin with my Avene water instead. I spread one pump-full over my entire face and neck and find that the dispensed amount is perfect. The product is light and non-greasy but definitely feels hydrating on. I was amazed when I woke up the morning after first using this product because I could still feel it on my skin. My skin just felt hydrated and plump and had a subtle glow to it. It contains some powerful natural ingredients too, starflower oil, rosehip oil, mimosa extract (which I've heard is great for restoring the skin's radiance), white tea extract, raspberry seed oil and rose petal extract are just a few of the lovely things I've been putting on my face. This product aims to smooth, soften, rejuvenate, replenish and restore radiance and after using for a couple of weeks and hearing the compliments people are giving me about my skin (not just my mum, okay ;) I can safely say this product does what it says it will. I took this with me on my trip last week and the handy 'lock' feature on the pump was great for avoiding spills in my makeup bag.

This product was sent to me as an extra as the company's founder Vicky read my blog and knew that I liked to double cleanse at night. I was touched at the thought and even more impressed with the Savar brand as a whole (more on that later). I initially didn't choose this cleansing product as I was worried about how a 'wash' would fare with my dry skin, but I needn't have worried. This product doesn't dry at all and if you're a fan of a 'wet' wash off cleanser then let this be your product. I get the feeling that this product is one of the heros of their brand and the cornerstone of their recommended skincare regime. It really is a luxury to use this cleanser, it glides on and moves easily over the skin, it doesn't pull or tug and you just know it's doing a great job at removing dirt and impurities. This cleanser also has a faint citrus smell which makes it a pleasure to use, I can't use a product that doesn't smell good. I was interested to learn that after water, Aloe Vera juice is the biggest ingredient in this cleanser. We all know the benefits of Aloe Vera, get a burn and pop some on, it soothes, calms and takes down any redness instantly which makes this product fantastic for everyone, even someone with sensitive skin. Cucumber extract also makes an appearance as does lemon, honey, pawpaw, raspberry, hibiscus and lacebark. They pulled out all the big guns for this one! I'm so glad they sent this to me. Y'all need to try it for yourself.

From talking to Vicky, I got an impression of Savar as a company that possesses great integrity, knowledge, understanding and the ability to have fun and give back. If you looked at any of the links I posted in my last Savar post (I'll link them all again at the end) then you'll know that their Pinterest page is full of stylish and inspiring images that shows the spirit of women and what we like to look at (hot guys,fashion of the moment and words to live your life by to name a few). For a company that only launched months, not years ago to have entered so high in the beauty market is a testament to how well they know their stuff. The packaging is lovely, including a little leaflet further explaining the product and brand was not lost on me. In this day and age, we want all the knowledge we can get, by providing one small leaflet I can see the attention to detail given. 
Their website is informative and easy to navigate. Their blog is a must read if you want natural beauty advice too. Make sure you check out their Facebook Page too if you want a weekly chance to win some of their goodies, it's all part of having fun and giving back.

Savar 99% natural products are recyclable and not tested on animals. Great right? They're also free from parabens, harmful chemicals, harsh detergents, mineral oils and animal derived ingredients.

I'll be back tomorrow with a giveaway for you. Savar have kindly donated this travel set to giveaway to one of my lucky readers!
