I recently reviewed the La Mav Organic Vit-C Advanced Nightly Repair Nectar, La Mav Omega-3 Advanced Nightly Repair Creme which are part of the Complete Collection for Oily/Combination Skin, plus the La Mav Organic BB Cream and Anti-Ageing Mineral Foundation.
Purifying Toner / Review
Sweet Orange Foaming Cleanser / Review
I've previously used La Mav's Hydra-Calm Cleansing Creme in the past, and absolutely loved it.
The Sweet Orange Foaming Cleanser is a gel-cleanser that lathers up into a light foam as you cleanse, effortlessly removing all make-up, dirt and impurities from the skin.
As my skin is balanced/normal, I do find this cleanser is can leave my skin a little stripped feeling sometimes (it is after all designed for oily skin). My simple remedy for that - I mix one pump of the cleanser with 5-8 drops of rosehip oil! (a handy tip to remember for any cleanser you find too dry for your skin type) This still cleanses my skin beautifully, and leaves it feeling not only incredibly refreshed, but also soft and supple!
If you have oily skin, however, this would be perfectly balanced, as it never leaves my skin feeling over-the-top stripped clean. I think personally for me, my skin is better suited to the Hydra-Calm Cleansing Creme, but mixed with the rosehip oil, this cleanser still does a wonderful job of cleansing my skin and effortlessly removes makeup.

One product I don't think there is enough emphasis on when it comes to skincare is a toner. Toners have the reputation of being just fluff, something that smells pretty but doesn't really do anything. There are a few different kinds available, and it depends on your skin type and needs as to which you'll prefer.
The La Mav Organic Purifying Toner has been designed to refine pores, tighten and tone, hydrate the skin and even the skin tone. Used post-cleansing, toners also help your other skincare to penetrate more deeply and effectively into the skin, as damp skin absorbs products more readily.
I've been using this after cleansing, but also throughout the day to refresh and hydrate my (bare) skin. The Purifying Toner really is more of a toner than just a hydrating mist, so I don't use this to set/refresh make-up (I use the Rose Hydrating Mist for that).
My skin is very balanced, so I haven't any oiliness to notice a difference in, but if my skin is having a less-than-stellar day, a light spritz of this a few times throughout the day leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed.
The La Mav Organic Purifying Toner contains Amino Acids which conditions and optimises skin for maximum absorption of daily moisturiser, Natural Fruit Enzymes and Lemon Balm extract purifies, exfoliates, and balance skin’s pH, Aloe Vera extract and Rosa damascena instantly revitalise dull skin delivering a refreshed, hydrated, and healthy glow and Waltheria Extract delivers visible results by evening out skin tone.
I have also noticed my skin tone has been more even since I began using this.
The Sweet Orange Foaming Cleanser contains Bio-Actives of - Bilberry extract along with Sugar Cane extract helps purify, cleanse and exfoliate the outer layer of the skin encouraging cell turnover and strengthening the surface of the skin as well as refining and unclogging pores, Papain from Papaya extract purifies skin and Witch Hazel extract has anti-inflammatory and astringent properties, Goji extract, Green Tea extract, Rosemary extract and Marshmallow extract calm and soothe the skin.
The Sweet Orange Foaming Cleanser is packaged in an enclosed pump bottle with cap, in La Mav's signature white and silver packaging. I love a pump on cleansers as it makes application/dispensing as easy and mess-free as possible.
