Laviol Organic Skincare Review & Giveaway**Closed**

I have some awesome skincare products to tell you about today and they are called Laviol Organic Rosehip Recovery Set. I was so excited to get these! They really do actually smell just like roses and I have several bushes so I tried to match them up but of course the blooms are long gone but I believe my pink roses smelled alot like this cream does.
Here is what I got to review:
1.)  Shea Butter Cleanser
2.)  Rosehip Antioxidant Cream
3.)  Seaweed Antioxidant Eye Cream
First, let me start out by saying this skincare came all the way from Australia and it is certified as Organic in Australia. I don't know about you, but I have never had anything come from Australia so I am pretty excited that I got this really awesome skincare trio to try! Also, just so you know, this set is made specifically for women who have dry skin or mature skin. They do have other combo's for other types of skin but mine is for dark and mature skin and I sure could use it right about now!
I actually could just sit here and smell the stuff all day long but I know that is not gonna help with my fine lines and wrinkles if I don't get busy! So, here is how I went about testing and reviewing my 3 new products.
I like to always start with the cleanser because you don't want to put stuff on top of a dirty face. That wouldn't help anyway because all that dirt is preventing the product from getting to where it needs to go. So, please first you the Shea Butter Cleanser and really clean your face but gently.
Now, I have to tell you that this particular cleanser did not smell like roses but like a cleanser should smell because that is what it does and I don't need the perfume smell to tell me that my face is clean. I can see that in the mirror.
This is my favorite product, the Rosehip Antioxidant Cream  that is rich in antioxidants and natural oils. It provides deep and long lasting hydration and provides essential nutrients and oils to the skin to help prevent skin aging.
Here are some details as to how it works:
Contains powerful herbal antioxidants of kelp, green tea and vitamin E help to reduce sun damage by quenching free radicals and reducing inflammation. They are also excellent for helping to delay the skin aging process.
Combined with other active herbal extracts (olive leaf, calendula, witch hazel etc.), they enhance the skin's immune system. This product helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and also helps to minimize the appearance of pores and uneven skin tones and reveals a more radiant and younger looking skin.
You can apply this product twice a day, once in the morning and once a night.  It is gonna make your skin feel so awesome! It will be very smooth to the touch plus it will smell good to boot!
You will love this next product for the eyes called Seaweed Antioxidant Eye Cream:
What I love most about this whole set is that they sent the bottles in recycled cardboard and it looks like the old timey products that people used to buy. They did not use fancy artwork either on their boxes or jars. They kept it simple but elegant and it is straight forward in what it says it will do so that you know from the Get Go what to expect. I am very excited to see how all this looks after a few months.
That is the only thing I regret about blogging, it has to be done in a certain time frame so you don't really get to experience it in it's entirely. So, I am having to give you progress reports that are only a few weeks old and I know that according to Dermatologists that it takes time to let the product sink in and do it's work. So, I plan on coming back and updating this in the next month or so to let you know how it all went.
I will say one word about Laviol Organics and that is there is alot of information on their site about your skin and what you should be doing and it has all kinds of answers to things that you would try before going to a doctor. They seem to be up on all the latest and greatest of all kinds of subjects and I was just fascinated reading of how are skin works and what it needs.
I hope you will go and read the rest that is underneath the About Us section because it became too much for me but what little I did see was pretty darn impressive. I wish I had the room to do a full report but I don't. So, go see for yourself all the wonderful things that they have in store for you!
This is what Laviol Organic says about their Eye Cream:
Certified Organic Seaweed Antioxidant Eye Cream is a light moisturizer yet rich in antioxidants and natural oils. It has an excellent ability to increase blood circulation, detoxify and nourish the skin.

I found this in the About Us section:
Laviol Organic is an Australian organic skin care brand. It was developed with the concept of providing the most natural, pure and highest quality organic skin care products. The "LAVIOL" name comes from a combination of Lavender, Violet and Olive leaf; these plants symbolize constancy, modesty, simplicity, peace and healing.  
We are inspired by the symbolism and are dedicated to providing a high quality, ethical, committed, transparent and trustworthy organic skin care brand to our customers. The idea to develop an organic skin care range came about by studying ingredients that are used in skin care products, we know that many skincare products are using chemical and synthetic ingredients.  
This worries us especially since we don't fully know what the potential side effects to our health are. Our skin is the largest organ in our body, it can absorb up to 60% of what we put on it and therefore, it is important for us to know what exactly is absorbed by the skin.  
In cosmetic category, there is no need to use harsh chemicals in skincare products as they were just created as cheap substitutes for natural compounds which do a better job. The natural solution is a better choice for our body and mind.

If I win this organic skin trio I want to surprise my sister and have it sent to her. She is very low income but also is very into organic and healthy things and this would be SUCH a luxurious indulgent treat for her if I could win this for her!

As for the cat samples, if you don't want them I'd love them, I love giving my beyond spoiled and beyond loved Oriental Shorthair Cherish Bliss special treats and surprises : )
