Omved Protective Face Moisturiser - Review

Today's post is about a skincare product I've been loving recently and it is the Omved Protective Face Moisturiser. Omved is not a brand I've explored a lot. Till date, I've tried the Moisturising Face Cleanser and now this moisturizer but I will definitely check out their range because they make some really nice products that are not tested on animals and free of parabens, sulfates, silicones, synthetic colors and all the bad stuff. 

Omved Protective Face Moisturiser is an "emollient that keeps your face supple and moisturised. Use regularly to protect sun-damaged skin and reduce age spots and scars". The ingredients are DM water, avocado oil, almond oil, glycerin, jojoba oil, salicyclic acid, ashwagandha oil, oils of lavender, yland ylang, jasmine, sodium benzoate, glyceryl stearate and cetyl alcohol. The price is Rs 790 for 100 ml.

The packaging is nothing flashy and you get the 'natural no chemicals' vibe from the bottle. The smell of the lotion is very herb like and it is the same one that I got when I was using their face wash some time back. Omved does not use synthetic perfumes and I like my skin care specially those to be applied on the face to not have a strong smell.

I really like the texture of this moisturizer. It has a cream base but the lotion is very light and almost feels 'water like'. It applies evenly and gets absorbed very fast therefore no oily film on top of the skin. The lotion is meant for normal to dry skin but I've been testing this under extremely humid conditions and the performance is great.  No greasiness at all so I think those of you with combination or oily skin can also use this. I've been using this moisturiser twice daily - after taking a shower and before hitting the sack and I'm really pleased with its hydrating properties. The effect lasts for a long time and in fact when I wake up in the morning after being in an AC room all night, my skin does not show any sign of dryness. A big thumbs up for that! The reduction of age spots and scars claim is something I need more time to validate but as a moisturizer, it is doing great.

The price is on the higher side but it is really a very good and effective moisturizer. It is working very well for me and you can give it a try too.
