What a beautiful concentrate! You can tell that Avalea has put a lot of care and effort into their skincare. This feels super luxurious and nourishing on the skin. I have very sensitive skin and can't tolerate retinoids/retinol, so I'm happy to see more companies offering skincare with Bakuchiol. A little goes a long way, and it leaves the skin feeling perfectly moisturized. I can't wait to see the long term benefits with continued used. I'm also super excited to try Avalea's other products.
Wanted to give it some time before reviewing. I’m in my thirties with combination skin and occasional breakouts. I’ve been using this product for almost a year and it has helped to even out my skin tone, deeply moisturize, plump up my skin, soften the crows feet around my eyes and minimize the pores on my nose. I use a few drops on my face and neck after cleansing (before moisturizing) and split a drop to tap around my eyes. I’ve recommended it to a friend in her 40’s and my mother in her 70’s (both of whom have been very impressed with the results and continue to buy the product). I love the way my skin looks and plan to keep using it! I wish they had an eye cream with bakuchiol in it! I emailed them to confirm vegan ingredients. They are in the process of getting the certification. Looking forward to more products!
Love this cream. It makes my skin very soft without any irritation. Not greasy at all.
Have been using the products for about a week. So far love all the products, has made my skin very soft. I have sensitive skin and have had no issues using the products at all.
I have tried so many different products to get the darks spots on my face to fade. This product finally did the trick! My dark spots have faded!
I discovered this cream about a year ago, and am on my 4th bottle. At age 45, time is taking its toll, but I'm super busy and very rarely take time for self-care. I received a bottle as a gift and set it on my bathroom sink by my toothbrush. Because it has the super easy pump, it was easy for me to hit the pump after brushing morning and night. The most striking thing about this cream was its ease of being absorbed by the skin. One pump is all it takes to cover the face and neck, and it only takes 15-20 seconds and it's all rubbed in with no greasy sheen or residue. It leaves me looking hydrated and makes those fine lines less visible. After only a few weeks I could tell the lasting effects on my skin and I was hooked.
I have used Oil of Olay, Roc and some others throughout the years, and because of my naturally oily T-zone, would often break out or be blotting off an oil-slick throughout the day when I used them...I don't have any issues with either using this cream.
Since I fell in love with this product, I also tried their other products and now use the entire line (below).
The orders are always processed immediately and arrive in only a day or so, well packed and secure.
I even got my boyfriend to try the Retinol Alternative Serum with Bakuchiol to get rid of his sunspots (and he is far from "metro"). I have started mixing a drop or two of this serum into my cream at night for the retinol benefit.
I'm so happy to have discovered this product!!!
Phyto Radiance Concentrate with Bakuchiol
This product has been fantastic for my skin. After recently having my second child, I have tried to get my skin to a descent place and this product has helped remove scars and even my complexion. Has become a go to after a very long search. I am also very grateful that it is affordable compared to most clean beauty.
I LOVE Avalea! I’ve tried all but 1 product and have been extremely satisfied with everything! Please come out with more!
First of all, the scent is so pleasant. At first I wasn’t sure about it, but i love it- smells like a nice cup of tea!
The product itself is so luxurious and smooth. It’s silky and apples so nicely on he skin. A little bit goes a long way. I like to use it after a moisturizer to lock in hydration, or mix it with my moisturizer. Even though I’m and oily skin type, this oil is all around so helpful for my skin. Really helps to smooth and brighten. I use it every night and love it. I do wish it came in a pump instead of a dropper though, since the oil formula is thin, sometimes it drops out of the dropper before you squeeze it, so be careful!
This oil is so versatile! While it can be used for so many things, I have 2 favorite ways to use it after a shower:
1. Rub 1 pump between my hands and disperse through the ends of my damp hair. This helps keep my frizz at bay, add some shine, and lock in moisture! I also gave some to a friend that is pregnant whose hair has become very dry and frizzy. She loves using it the same way- and loves how it transforms her hair!
2. PERFECT after shave nourishment!!! Once I towel dry, I slather this in my legs. They look healthy, stay hydrated, and irritation is gone.
Whatever’s left on my hands I rub into my cuticles.
I’ve also added this to my facial and body moisturizers, and enjoy the boost in hydration that way too!
I definitely recommend this product. Good for so many things!
(Note: I have fine hair, and oily skin)
I've tried them all when it comes to luxe, clean beauty. This is an incredible serum, what with its high quality ingredients and accessible price point (clean beauty should be accessible to all). It is lightweight, with a texture and consistency closer to a water-based serum than an oil while still providing all of the benefits of natural oils. It sinks in immediately, leaving skin with a silky radiance and a very light, sweet, floral scent. I can see how this serum would work well for drier skin types in addition to my oilier skin type. I've paid far more for natural face serums and oils; this is worth its weight in gold!
I have been using this cream for over 3 months. I like the way the cream feels on my face and lines in my face have diminished.
My co-worker Margaret gifted me this product to try it out and it has been marvelous! I apply the blend in the nights after I remove my makeup and clean my face from any products. I then apply the blend, just a few drops directly to my face and neck and I blend them out evenly with my fingers. I have been using it for a month now and I can’t go to bed without applying it! I have a dry-sensitive skin and it works perfectly. I feel that my skin is smoother, lighter and being 24 I feel it’s a good start on keeping those aging lines and dark spots were they should be: AWAY! I totally recommend this product.
I can't say enough about this product!! I was worried that putting this on my face would have made my skin oily and possibly break out but I was so WRONG!!! It is amazing and leaves my skin hydrated and so soft!! I LOVE IT and will be buying again!! Thank you!!!
I have been using this almost every day for several months, and I basically still have a full bottle! It only takes a few drops to cover your face and it smells soooo good, almost smells like a cup of tea! My face looks brighter and feels smoother than ever before. Definitely a product worth buying!
I switched to this oil because my little boy kept breaking out from the baby lotion I was using. I put a few drops in his bath and use this as a moisturizer instead of using lotion on him. So far, so good- no redness or rash! I love that it is unscented and plant based!
This is my go-to facial cream every time I was my face. It's light and keeps just the right amount of moisture and elasticity in my face. LOVE the pump too, makes it easy to wash, squirt and moisturize!
This product is so amazing. I tend to have really dry skin and Eczema has always been an issue. I also tend to react to certain lotions as well. This has truly been a life saver this winter. I highly recommend this product!
I've been using this as a cleansing oil to remove my makeup at night. It is very lightweight and easily removes all of my makeup and waterproof mascara!
This mask made my skin baby soft!! I was a bit nervous because I have used exfoliating products in the past and found them to be way to harsh on my face leaving my face red but this mask was not like that at all! I love that I am able to mix it myself and feel like it will make the jar last so much longer!!
Love this moisturizer! Absorbs quickly & doesn’t leave a greasy residue. This cream leaves my skin looking great all day.
I have been using the beauty day cream and absolutely love it!!! It is light and nongreasy for all day wear and works great under my makeup! It is so moisturizing and my skin feels so soft!! LOVE IT!!!
I received this as a sample 2 weeks ago and have been using it every morning. It feels silky going on and absorbs nicely. No break outs since I started using it. Will be ordering once my sample runs out.
This product not only helped my wintery dry skin but I also love this because it is unsented and works well with my rosacea.
Honestly, I received this as a free sample and I did not have high hopes for this mask since it was mainly plant-based. But, it actually was amazing! My skin felt so soft and smooth after I used it. I will definitely be purchasing this after I am done with my sample.
Being 60, oil based products are best for aging skin. I absolutely adore the Phyto Concentrate. After 2 days, I could see a difference. For the first time in my life I considered going out with no foundation!! I use it like a serum on my forehead, chin and mouth area then follow with the day cream which fabulous, also. I am currently using La Mer but feel the Avalea is just as potent.
Rosacea sufferer - So over the past 10 years or so I have tried just about every cream, face wash and medication available, both over-the-counter and by prescription, to help control my rosacea. I tried several retinoid products in the past that were prescribed by my dermatologist, and while they appeared to help with the redness and bumps, I could only apply them once a week because they made my face itch and sting if I used them more frequently.
While searching for a natural alternative to Retinol, I came across Phyto Radiance Concentrate, so I thought I'd give it a try. Not only did the redness and bumps disappear on my face with daily usage, but the small wrinkles around my eyes disappeared and the pores in my skin completely shrank up to where they are barely noticeable. After only 6-weeks of use, my skin looks normal, not red, and feels much smoother and softer.
As a quick heads-up, I put the oil on the back of my hand and use my other fingers to apply it to my face. The excess oil I rub over the backs of both of my hands and have found over the last month or so that the darkened sun spots on my hands have also all but disappeared. Thanks Avalea!
This has been the best $31.00 that I have ever spent (after coupon) ! My friends are always complementing me on how bright and clear my skin looks. Amazing product!
I never write reviews but I had to for this product. My skin is so clear since I started using this face cream. I've had the same bottle for over 2 months and still have half left. A little goes a long way. This stuff is amazing!
My pores looked a LOT smaller after using this mask- thank you!
Love pairing this with your face cream. My skin has never felt softer! Thank you for taking the time to package it with eco-friendly peanuts. Little things make a big difference.
I have been using Phyto Radiance for about 2 weeks. I love it! I have tried many anti aging night creams and serums with Retinol, but most of them cause irritation. This oil blend literally makes my skin glow! The fine lines on my forehead and around my eyes have diminished significantly. The delicate rose scent is pure perfection. Highly recommended this product.
Arrived extremely well packaged, no leaks or breakage. There is no fragrance whatsoever and it goes on very smoothly and is not greasy all. Glad I found your website!
