Product Review: 'Calming Moisture for Face, Neck & Scalp' by CV Skinlabs

CV Skinlabs is a safe, nontoxic, nourishing skincare line created and founded by NYC based natural beauty expert, cancer survivor and author, Britta Aragon.  If you read my interview feature with Britta, then you know how incredible the story behind her skincare line is.  She is such a beautiful person inside and out, and when it comes to safe, natural and effective skincare, she is definitely someone I trust!  All of the CV Skinlabs products are 100% free of synthetic fragrances and dyes, parabens, formaldehyde, 1,4-dioxiane, hydroquinone, phthalates, mineral oil/petrolatum, silicones, propylene glycol, SLS/SLES, PEG/PPG, triclosan, disodium EDTA, hydroquinone, talc, MEA-DEA-TEA  or chemical sunscreens.  

Over the past month, I’ve been using a few different products from the CV Skinlabs line. I’m absolutely in love with all of her products… I decided to review them one at a time, so I could really go into detail about each product.  

The first product I wanted to review was the Calming Moisture cream for face, neck and scalp.  It’s a whipped wet cream that calms and hydrates all types of skin, leaving it radiant, dewy and evenly toned. It formula is 99.4% natural content, with 57% of that being organic ingredients… 

Key Ingredients - Include Beta Glucan, which helps promote collagen production, speed wound healing and diminish signs of lines and wrinkles with the soluble fiber found in the cell walls of oat kernels… Aloe Vera, soothes, calms and moisturizes dry and irritated skin… and Oat Extract, which helps to reduce redness and itchiness. 

Tri-Rescue Complex - CV Skinlabs’ exclusive Tri-Rescue Complex ingredient blend is infused into all of their products. It’s comprised of a unique blend of turmeric, alpha-bisabolol and reishi mushroom.  Together, these ingredients offer anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing properties, while encouraging skill cell repair, healing, and restoration.

I have incredibly sensitive, dry skin so it’s difficult for my complexion to find balance; especially during the colder seasons.  After washing my face with my favorite cleanser (Indie Lee’s Carrot French Clay Cleansing Bar), I applied the CV Skinlabs Calming Moisture cream to my face and neck.  When I first began using it, I was amazed at how quickly it absorbed into my skin, yet provided long-lasting moisture all day; even with my dry winter skin.  It’s nourishing yet lightweight, an leaves my skin feeling calm and fresh, while looking supple and glowy all day! 

Overall, I absolutely love this product, and would definitely recommend it. The cream comes in a 2oz. bottle, and sells for $49.00, which is not bad at all considering the quality of ingredients and effectiveness.  Not to mention, a little goes a long way, so a 2oz. bottle will last a few months!
