Comvita Protective Day Lotion

Comvita is a range of anti aging skincare from New Zealand that uses sustainable ingredients extracted from nature. In it's Protective Day Lotion(£25) that I tried out and it relies on Manuka Honey, one of the brands most used ingredients, to maintain the elasticity of the skin and the right level of moisture balance.

Macadamia Seed Oil, Sesame Seed Extract, Argan kernal and other fruit extracts are some of its other interesting ingredients. The lotion is especially targeted at Normal to Oily skin types. Sesame seed and Argan Oil is what keeps the excess sebum in the t-zone area in control, whereas Macadamia Oil restores the skins hydration level.

It is quite intriguing to read what brands use as ingredients in anti-ageing products. If easily available, one might be able to incorporate them in our daily lives in other natural, homemade ways to further protect the skin, in line with a regular skin care regime of course.

The lotion itself has a strong honey-like smell to it. It's not the typical sweet smell in my opinion. in fact a bit herbal. The thin lotion absorbs into the skin in a few minutes, however you still have that slightly moist feeling going on. The finish is not offensively sticky or tacky at all, in fact I quite like it as a make-up base for foundation to glide on smoothly.

I have been using this lotion since a while now and whereas I did not notice any dramatic anti-ageing results, I have started preferring it as my daily moisturizer instead of the usual ones I normally prefer. It does help in keeping my skin clear and blemish free.

My mum gave this a try too after sneakily using it up from my dresser and felt it gave her skin a temporary tightening effect and subtly filled in her expression lines and fine lines and made them look less obvious. I believe if she would use this on a longer basis, it would surely hold on the effect on the skin for longer.

Overall it seems like a good everyday lotion for those between 25 and above and have concerns regarding combination skin, fine lines and wrinkles. It is not tested on animals and is Paraben and Sulphate free.
