Santaverde Skincare

Santaverde Skincare is a brand that originates from Andulusia, Spain where the owners grow their own Aloe Vera in the farms, making sure their products contain 100% natural ingredients and Aloe Vera juice instead of water, so you get all the added benefits of Aloe Vera combined with the ingredients of every individual product.

Their products are all very fuss free, with minimalistic packaging and aimed at delivering effective results. I have two of their products namely their Aloe Vera Creme in Medium and an Aloe Vera Hydro Repair Gel, both of which I have been using since the past few weeks. 

The Aloe Vera Creme can be used as a daily moisturiser as well as a night cream and as it sinks into the skin quite well without any tacky feel afterwards. I like to use it before applying make-up and it provides just the right level of hydration without leaving any residue. 

I think the intensity 'medium' is just perfect for my combination-sensitive skin type and it had led to my skin behaving really well since the past few weeks. The cream is meant to aid in cell renewal, skin elasticity and in calming down any redness and in my opinion it does exactly what it says and does not under-perform in any way whatsoever. 

The Aloe Vera Hydro Repair Gel on the other hand is a skin-brightening and hydrating serum that I use prior to applying the Aloe Vera Creme. This would be a great moisturizer for those of you with oily skin types as it immediately absorbs and has a lovely thin, serum like consistency, which is unlikely to clog pores. 

I feel it immediately tightens the skin as well to aid in the elasticity process but nevertheless does not leave a dry, tight-face feel. This particular gel has a very refreshing fruity smell to it reminding me of papaya and mangoes. 

Both of them are a gem of a product and quite unlike anything else I have tried in organic skin care previously, both in consistency, texture and effectiveness. They have helped me tremendously in battling with blemish scars and constant breakouts hence are something I trust and would easily recommend.

Santaverde have quite a range of products available to suit all skin types so do check them out. I would say the range is perfect for some one with a fuss-free skin care routine, wanting simple and effective products. They are quite reasonably priced too for a change!

I love anything with Aloe vera in! I have combination skin so i might look into this brand a bit more because I like that they are organic too :)
Thanks for sharing.
