River Veda Review: Lip Balm & Evening Primrose Moisturizer

Posted Mar 18 2012 5:40pm

I received River Veda Rejuvenate Heavenly Words Organic Lip Balm and River Veda Everyday Evening Primrose Organic Moisturizer to review.

Features of the lip balm
It’s certified organic…made with ingredients that are sourced from organic and biodynamic farms.
Though I find this a bit misleading since only 41.6% of the total ingredients are from organic farming, yet 100% are of natural origin.
Cruelty free.
A key ingredient is Beeswax, which not only increases the skin’s essential moisture, but also acts as a UV inhibitor and skin conditioner.
The herb Calendula helps to nourish the skin and aids in healing inflammations and minor skin problems.
Offering daily protection, the Heavenly Words Lip Balm softens and shields lips from the natural effects of sun, wind and temperature extremes.

While this product is organic, I wasn’t overly thrilled with it.
It may just be the heat in South Florida, but it oozed/leaked from the container so I had oils wherever I laid the container.
(Not a huge minus but if you live in the heat you’ll want to take note of possible oils leaking from container opening)
It goes on easily but yet feels greasy and grainy at times.
It’s packaging isn’t exactly the easiest or neatest either.
It comes in a metal tube so you have to push/squeeze it out and can get a bit messy.
I may just be real picky when it comes to things being easy and clean…

The moisturizer smelled great…primrose and ylang ylang.
Features
Luxuriously formulated to protect and enhance the skin during the day and stimulate the natural process of replenishment and renewal during sleep
Rich in the magical properties of Jojoba Seed Oil helping to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, promote skin suppleness and assist in skin rejuvenation
The Miracle Plant’, Aloe Vera, has soothing, emollient and antibacterial properties which help heal skin disturbances and promote new skin growth
Advanced supercritical extraction allows the full spectrum of nature’s powerful phytonutrients to be delivered straight to the skin
Certified organic. Ingredients are sourced from organic and biodynamic farms.

Again with the misleading aspect of certified organic, which is why consumers need to read…because they don’t claim to be 100% organic…just Certified.
The moisturizer ingredients are 99.3% from natural origin, while only 34.15% from organic farming.

I normally don’t use moisturizer (I just use virgin organic coconut oil if anything).
And, I’ll remain using coconut oil.
While this product smelled good, it didn’t really do anything for me as far as moisturizing aspects.
As far as the minimize fine lines and wrinkles, promote skin suppleness and assist in skin rejuvenation aspect, I didn’t see any difference after 2+ weeks of using it.

Overall, I’m not overly thrilled with the products but I could just be picker than others or used to not using anything…
If you give any of River Veda products a try and feel differently than I do, let me know.
