DeVita Natural Skin Care Moisture Tints BB Cream Review

DeVita Natural Skin Care Moisture Tints BB Cream Review

Beauty Balm Creams are all the rage these days. Most commonly known as BB Creams, they are a hybrid of moisturizer, sunscreen, primer and foundation all rolled into one product. They are perfect for those who currently use all those products separately and want to streamline their beauty routine or for those trying to use all those individual products. It’s really important to keep your skin hydrated and protected, so the more products with SPF you can use the better in my opinion. When DeVita Natural Skin Care sent me one of their Moisture Tints BB Creams to try, I couldn’t have been more excited! I’ve been on the hunt for a good cruelty free and vegan beauty balm for some time!

Claims: “Our exquisite combination of active moisturizers and sun screen, plus enlightening pigments, and DeVita™s signature age defying ingredients unite to create the most advanced one-step BB Cream (beauty balm) available – DeVita Moisture Tints. Your day just got better and faster with this all-in-one out the door look. Sun Protection + Natural Moisturizer + Tinted Coverage = Perfection. Just great, healthy coverage you can count on – absolutely… |ab?so?lute| minerals™ by DeVita. The best of both worlds = our Solar Protective Moisturizer met our revolutionary absolute minerals color blends to create Moisture Tints™. Providing sun protection to SPF 15 with a sheer color added in to help balance skin tone.”

Ingredients: ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Zinc oxide 9%. INACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Aloe barbadensis (organic certified aloe vera gel), Purified Water (aqua), Capric/caprylic triglycerides (derived from coconut oil), Glycerin (vegetable), Pomegranate extract, Japanese green tea, Hyaluronic acid (vegan source), Glyceryl stearate SE (derived from vegetable oil), Stearic acid, Lecithin phospholipid, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Allantoin, Vitis vinifera (grape) seed extract. May contain: Iron oxides, Chromium green oxide.

Pros: Paraben free. Cruelty free and vegan. Natural formula. Build-able coverage for those who want light, medium or full coverage. Great blendable formula.

Cons: None.

The Verdict: This was hands down the best BB cream I have used! I received the DeVita Natural Skin Care Moisture Tints BB Cream in Medium and it was the perfect shade for me. It was really smooth to apply, blended well, and gave great coverage through the day. I tried it both with and without my usual primer and the wear was great both ways. The formula is really creamy and not at all sticky or tacky like some BB creams I have used in the past. I applied the Moisture Tints Beauty Balm with my usual flat top brush like I do with foundation and the coverage was flawless. If you haven’t yet found a good vegan Beauty Balm (or even if you have!) give this one from DeVita a try. I think you will love it!

DeVita Natural Skin Care Creamy Aloe Eye Makeup Remover Review

DeVita Natural Skin Care Creamy Aloe Eye Makeup Remover Review

Removing your eye make up each night is one of the biggest favors that you can do for your skin. No matter how tired you are, this is a step you don’t want to skip. The lovely folks at DeVita Natural Skin Care sent me their Creamy Aloe Eye Makeup Remover to try out. They are a cruelty free line, free of both animal testing and animal ingredients. As someone who understands the importance of preventative skin care, I couldn’t wait to try this makeup remover.

Claims: “Our light, silky lotion spreads evenly and quickly, while effectively removing all signs of eye make-up. Gentle aloe and avocado oil, plus soothing green tea coat the tender sensitive eye area, and help remove normal eye make-up without stinging or tingling. Leaves eye area feeling clean, not stripped. May need to reapply on very heavy make-up. Use cotton swab for removal of fine details.”

Ingredients: Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera gel), Aqua (purified water), (Allantoin extract, Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower extract, Calendula officinalis (calendula) flower extract, Humulus lupulus (hops) extract, Glycerin (vegetable), Camellia sinensis (Japanese green tea) leaf extract, Capric/caprylic triglycerides (derived from coconut), Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), Hydrolyzed wheat protein amino acids, Persea gratissima (avocado) oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Caprylic Glutamate, Lecithin phospholipid, Fucus vesiculosus (bladderwrack) extract, Spirulina maxima (spirulina) extract, Usnea barbata (oak moss) extract, Vitis vinifera (grape) seed extract.

Pros: Paraben free. Lightweight formula – creamy without being heavy. Natural ingredients. No strong scent. Works great on natural makeup formulas.

Cons: Doesn’t work as well on non-natural makeup formulas. Does sting eyes a little bit.

The Verdict: This eye makeup remover left my skin feeling amazing. It wasn’t heavy or greasy and did a great job of moisturizing. It was, however, not a good match for my eye makeup. I applied this product twice before going to my usual straight Vitamin E oil to remove my eye liner and mascara. I tried it with another mascara (with a more natural formula) and no eyeliner and it worked really well with one application! DeVita Creamy Alow Eye Makeup Remover is definitely a great product for those who have a more natural based makeup routine.

Overall, I did like this product. But it just doesn’t work with my normal makeup routine. If you are into natural beauty this is a great product for you!

DeVita Natural Skin Care Chamomile Cleansing Creme Review

DeVita Natural Skin Care Chamomile Cleansing Creme Review

For my skin, few things are better than a gentle creamy cleanser. One that works well without irritating skin is very important. Preventative skin care is one of the greatest things that you can do for yourself. Making sure to take care of your skin properly now means that you will continue to age gracefully and naturally. After hearing about my love for gentle and effective cleansers, the folks at DeVita Natural Skin Care sent me their Chamomile Cleansing Creme to review. They are a cruelty free line, free of both animal testing and animal ingredients.

Claims: “Our soothing, extra gentle fragrance free cleansing crème clears away daily impurities and make-up with ease… helps maintain the skins natural pH moisture balance for ideal support and natural glow. Leaves skin feeling dewy-soft, supple and comfortably clean – without any greasy or oily residue left behind. Gently removes daily grime and residue without using water or suds. Removes most make-up – may require two applications to remove heavier eye make-up.”

Ingredients: Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera gel), Aqua (purified water), Allantoin extract, Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower extract, Calendula officinalis (calendula) flower extract, Humulus lupulus (hops) flower extract, Glycerin (vegetable), Camellia sinensis (Japanese green tea) leaf extract, Capric/caprylic triglycerides (derived from coconut), Hydrolyzed wheat protein amino acids, Lecithin phospholipid, Spirulina maxima (spirulina) extract, Fucus vesiculosus (bladderwrack) extract, Usnea barbata (oak moss) extract, Vitis vinifera (grape) seed extract.

Pros: Paraben free. Cruelty free and vegan. Natural formula. Very gentle and creamy formula. The waterless formula is very effective in removing even stubborn makeup. Very soft and subtle natural scent that isn’t overpowering.

Cons: None.

The Verdict: This is one of the best face cleansing creme’s I have ever used! The DeVita Natural Skin Care Chamomile Cleansing Creme has a very gentle and soothing formula. It’s really creamy and concentrated. Just a single pump of cleansing creme was enough to remove all of my makeup – something that is rare for most cleansers. It left my skin feeling refreshed, clean and moisturized.
