Since I'm prone to adult acne, I am extremely cautious while choosing my skin care products. anything that goes onto my skin has to be mild and with as fewer chemicals as possible!
When I was asked to try the Oliveda face care range, I did my research and found out that the founder Thomas Lommel has spent enough time literally communicating with Olive trees and discovering the secret power of Olive leaves to create what we now call Oliveda. (read their story here).
I tried three products for face and the details and experience of each of the products herein below:
F59 Serum Face Hydroxytyrosol Corrective: This highly effective facial serum with hydroxytyrosol and para-cress tightens and firms the skin, while at the same time providing a much more fine-pored complexion. Due to the strong antioxidant and regenerating properties of olive tree Hydroxytyrosol, it also evens the uneven skin tone. Small lines and wrinkles as well as pigmentation can be reduced with regular use. The native of South America Paracress, the natural alternative to Botox, it also has a positive effect on the collagen network, which leads to tightening of the skin. It is dark brown/golden in colour and gets absorbed very quickly into your skin.
I use a few drops in the morning before my moisturiser and at night, I mix it with another miracle product from Oliveda, the midnight face elixir.
F65 Midnight Face Elixir Hydroxytyrosol Corrective: The OLIVEDA Midnight Elixir Face Oil combines Retinol, Arbequina and Kahai oils with the patented "Hyaluron in Oil Complex" and the regenerating super olive tree antioxidant Hydroxytyrosol. The result is a unique active complex that regenerates and firms the skin overnight, reduces wrinkles and enhances the brightness of the skin during sleep. I use it along with my face serum at night.
Believe me, after a while, I don't even know where did the oil go nonetheless, my skin still feels soft and moisturised. Which means, no pimples!!!
The last, but not the least, the eye cream.
F60 Eye Cream Hydroxytyrosol Corrective: This highly effective and yet gentle eye cream contains a unique and powerful complex of active ingredients which include hydroxytyrosol, the polyphenol from the olive tree and Paracress. This power mixture has a positive effect on the collagen network and can smooth and reduce eye wrinkles, reduce the appearance of dark circles and discoloration or blemishes, and protect against premature aging.
Use it under your eyes after your serum and elixir and go for your beauty sleep.
The beauty of Oliveda products is that their products are based on the cell elixir of the olive tree, which is contained up to 70% in each of their products. In conventional cosmetics, the basis of a product (about 70%) is always pure water, this water is not an active ingredient and serves only as a "filler". By replacing the water base, Oliveda can produce 70% more potency! In addition, the olive tree-specific hydroxytyrosol is one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world. The cell elixir used in their products is full of hydroxytyrosol, up to 3000 times higher than the already healthy olive oil. It not only fights free radicals in the body but also combats environmental toxins that we are exposed to every day.
So, is Oliveda worth using? YES!!! My verdict is a definite yes!!
