Aloe and Rose… sounds like the perfect toner to me!

Well, I was right! This toner soothes your skin after cleansing and also adds moisture. It has a subtle scent that smells like a sweet, floral tea that is absolutely delicious! This toner is made with 100% organic Rose Water, rose essential oil, and Aloe Vera to gently clear away any oil or make up to reveal a completely clean and healthy face! This toner is great for all skin types and I highly recommend it!

The Pitta Balancing Treatment Oil is an absolute dream for my skin! It is made to address inflammation, redness and reactivity, and sensitive skin. It smells like a bouquet of flowers and is packed with skin loving ingredients. Almond oil, Jojoba oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Argan Oil and Chammomile and Green Tea are a few of the star ingredients that make this oil so fantastic. It hydrates and calms the skin without feeling greasy or heavy.

I love using this in the morning. I wash my face, massage 3-4 drops onto my face and let in sink in as I get ready for the day. By the time I am ready to apply make up (10 minutes or so), my skin is completely moisturized and my make up applies smoothly and easily.

This oil definitely calmed and moisturized my combination/sensitive skin without causing breakouts. My skin is less red and it just generally looks healthier! I love this stuff!

The Vata Face Cream is a thick, luxurious face cream that nourishes your skin with essential oils and herbs. It smells AMAZING… light, herbal, refreshing, just trust me! It instantly hydrates to improve the texture and tone of your skin. I like to use this after the Aloe and Rose Tonic at nighttime, however, it would make the perfect daytime moisturizer as well since it is not too heavy or greasy. For a double dose of hydration, this could be used under the treatment oil.

Exfoliation is very important to healthy looking skin. Once or twice a week, use a gentle scrub to remove dead skin cells and impurities, improve circulation to give your skin a nice glow, and to improve cell turnover. The Sananda Face Polish is a nice way to do all of these things. This sugar-based facial scrub is made for acne-prone skin and removes bacteria and oil from pores for clearer skin overtime. It has an herbal/citrusy scent and oils to nourish the skin, so it will not cause dryness like typical acne-fighting treatments.

I’ve never used anything quite like the Bhana Body Scrub! It is a sea salt scrub with ground herbs and essential oils. It has a texture that’s somewhat gel-like and it’s very interesting! When you use this scrub with hot water, the scrub breaks down and does a great job removing dry skin cells and moisturizing event the most dehydrate skin. I use this on my feet and elbows, and it really did improve the look and feel of my skin. As with any scrub, its a good idea to put on a lotion or body butter afterwards. This is a unique product that is fun to use and definitely gets the job done!

The Body Butter is perfect treat for your skin. The consistency is very thick but it instantly melts and absorbs into your skin to leave it soft, smooth, and hydrated. It has a subtle scent that is fresh, clean, and herbal and it leaves a nice glowing sheen on the skin. Love it!

The Bottom Line

Jivana products are thoughtfully created with the highest quality ingredients. They effectively cleanse, hydrate and nourish the skin with natural oils, butters, and essential oils. Their range includes products for your face, body, and hair so it is simple to switch to vegan, cruelty-free products that are free of harmful chemicals and contain only the purest ingredients.

I absolutely adore how the Aloe and Rose Tonic and Pitta Balancing Treatment Oil work together to dramatically hydrate and reduce the redness in my skin. I felt comfortable leaving the house without make up and my boyfriend even told me that my skin looked better!

I highly recommend these products and look forward to trying more from this line! Head on over to their website and let me know what you think!

Thank you, Jivana, for sending me these fantastic products to review!!

Reviews:

This Rose Fountain Toner smells like a bouquet of freshly cut roses! I really can’t get enough of the scent! When you spray this fine mist on your face it calms and lightly hydrates thanks to Aloe Leaf Juice and Rose Flower Water.

This toner is perfect to use after you cleanse your skin and before using a moisturizer, serum, or beauty oil. It’s also fantastic to mist over your makeup to eliminate overly powdery makeup or just to give your face a dewy finish. You get a lot of product in this bottle so it will last quite some time, not to mention that the packaging is adorable!

The Nourished Foundation is a tinted face cream that is packed with skin loving ingredients. Aloe Vera and Jojoba Oil hydrate and calm the skin along with DMAE and MSM to give you a brightening effect. This is a light coverage foundation that illuminates and enhances your skin. I use this all over my face for a healthy glow and then use concealer wherever I need it. I found this product was best applied with my fingertips, as opposed to a blending sponge or brush.

Overall, this foundation creates a your-skin-but-better look.  Usually, I’m a medium to full coverage kind of girl, but I really like how this foundation gives me an effortlessly natural look.

The Bottom Line

From the cute packaging to the natural ingredients, I truly enjoy this foundation and toner! These specific products are vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben free (YASSSSS!). I recommend these products to anyone that is looking to clean up their skincare and makeup routine. Of course, if you love roses, I think you will love this brand!

Thank you, Rose Affinity, for sending me these vegan and cruelty-free products!

Reviews: 

Honeysuckle Body Butter 


“This body butter is lightly scented with honeysuckle essential oil. It’s richer and thicker in consistency and works great for treating rough or dry skin. It’s made with raw + natural ingredients that have beneficial properties for your skin. Together, the ingredients will create a protective barrier & help retain the moisture within your skin, without leaving an oily residue. Due to it’s thicker consistency, a little bit of product will go a long way!”

OMGosh. I never say that, but I don’t know how to communicate how excited I am about this stuff! This body butter is EVERYTHING I hoped it would be and more! The honey suckle scent is so spot-on I can’t even believe it. It’s sweet and floral and reminds me of the days that I spent in the backyard with my brother and sister hunting for honey suckles to pull apart and eat. You do not need to wear perfume when you use this body butter and I promise you will get a lot of “You smell good!” compliments like I did. This product melts quickly into your skin and does an excellent job hydrating even the driest skin thanks to shea butter as the main ingredient. My (formally) dry elbows give this a thumbs up!

Wild Rose Face Cream 


“This face cream is made with raw + natural ingredients that have beneficial properties for your skin. It’s lightly scented with a blend of rose geranium + ylang ylang essential oils, both which have additional properties for the skin. This light weight and cooling gel cream will provide hydration and moisture to the skin without leaving an oily residue.”

If you love floral scents, you will absolutely adore this face cream! It is thin and lightweight, yet really packs a punch in the moisture department! I have been using this moisturizer in the morning under my make up and my skin looks dewy and healthy.  I also have been using it at night and I always wake up to hydrated skin.

In my opinion, the best skin care products are those with the simplest and fewest ingredients. The ingredients in the Wild Rose Face Cream are aloe vera gel, apricot kernel oil, vitamin E, grapefruit seed extract and rose geranium and ylang ylang essential oils. I actually look forward to using this product, it’s that good!

Clear Unscented Eye Cream


“This eye cream is made with raw + natural ingredients that have beneficial properties for your skin. It provides enough hydration for the delicate skin around, and comes free of any essential oils. This light weight and cooling cream will provide the right amount of hydration and moisture to the skin without leaving an oily residue.”

A 2-ingredient eye cream? That’s exactly my style! Aloe vera and apricot kernel oil, that is all you will find in this Unscented Eye Cream! I use this in the morning under my makeup and it helps my concealer and/or foundation glide on smoothly and evenly. It prevents my undereyes from looking dry and it absorbs quickly. A little goes a long way, so this tiny container will last a long time!

The Bottom Line

I cannot say enough good things about NATURALPANDA! The products smells fantastic, work wonderfully, and the packaging is as cute as can be! To make it even better, Chandi, the owner, donates a portion of every purchase to the World Wild Life Fund to help save the pandas! How awesome is that?
