Leahlani Skincare Aloha Ambrosia Morning Moisture Elixir

August 25, 2017

Ah Leahlani. One of my absolute favourite brands which I've been loving for years. I really don't know when was the first time I tried one of Leah's magical concoctions but I sure know the first Leahlani product I tried. It was the one and only Mermaid Mask. You know what? I finished a jar of it a few weeks ago and been patiently waiting for it to be back in stock at my girl Rayna and her beautiful online boutique Reina Organics (which now is and is already on route to me!), and I have to say I've been really missing it. It really is a true green gem. Well, if I quickly search my email I can see an Etsy purchase of the mask way back in 2014. Told you I was a fan. Do you remember the old packaging? It sure was cute. Leahlani came a very long way and evolved into this gorgeous skincare line and everyone wants to have at least one piece of the Hawaiian goodness in their home. At least I think it's like that in the green beauty community. I sure as heck need at least! one product at a time from the beautiful Leah in my home. Back in May I was so lucky to receive a beautiful parcel straight from Hawaii full of Leahlani products and I've been testing them ever since. Yes, I can take quite a lot of time to properly test out new products and I will never understand girls who try a product once or maybe they use it for a week and then they are all ready to write a review. First impressions yes, but a whole review? I ain't like that. But this intro is already too long as it is so let's talk about the product you came here to read about. Meet the absolutely beautiful Aloha Ambrosia Morning Moisture Elixir*.
 The elixir is described as an exotic, superfood feast for your skin and I couldn't agree more. Actually the whole description of the Aloha Ambrosia is something that you would want to have immediately - her feather-light consistency and silken texture absorbs beautifully into the skin, infusing each cell with the essential nutrients it needs throughout the day- leaving your skin well fed, perfectly moisturized and wholly nourished. Doesn't it sound like a dream? Should I go on? Aloha Ambrosia is lavishly overflowing with youth enhancing antioxidants and vitamins derived from organic oils. And not just any organic oils but beautiful fruit oils such as Acerola Cherry, Mangosteen, Goji Berry, Passionfruit, Kiwi and Guava. Amm stunning?! These fruits are mostly known for their antioxidant benefits and they help to firm and tighten the skin, reduce inflammation and stimulate circulation. These beauties are lovingly blended into a base of Squalane, which is mostly known as a very good moisturizer but is so much more, Jojoba Oil and Aloe Vera. Simply beautiful. 

Aloha Ambrosia is quite a lightweight product and I find it to really be ideal for daytime use. On me it doesn't absorb that fast but it doesn't feel heavy on the skin either, so I see no problem in that. It gives my skin an instant glow, the aloha glow and I love that dewy look. Does it moisturize to perfection, as they promise? It most definitely does! I'm so impressed I can't even think of good enough words to describe all the moisturizing benefits it provides. Even if I use it with the powdered sunscreen Farizad's Veil from Earthwise Beauty (which can be a bit drying with some facial oils), my skin is still looking completely and utterly happy and moisturized. I've been using the two together and they are such a perfect match. Not only that Aloha Ambrosia packs a massive, massive punch of moisture but my skin also feel so soft and plump. I don't even need a moisturizer with it, but I do use a toner and an aloe vera based serum because I can't be a minimalist when it comes to skincare. I really have so much love for this product.
One last thing I have to mention is the scent. There is no surprise there, the elixir has a beautiful scent, like all Leahlani products do. When I first sniffed it, I did find it too strong but once I applied it on my face, the scent was just right *insert the smiling emoji with a drop of sweat on one side of the face*. The sweet-floral scent comes from a proprietary blend of essential oils, their signature blend of Jasmine essential oils. I adore the scent, it gives me all the feels and I don't think there ever was a product containing Jasmine that I didn't like. It's not your typical scent of Jasmine but still oh so very beautiful. A very lovely way to start the day. Why? Because the delicate scent of jasmine is heavenly and connects with the heart, awakening romantic and poetic feelings while evoking a happy state of being. Jasmine stimulates the release of serotonin, which results in an uplifted mood and a burst of creative energy - the perfect way to start the day for your skin and spirit.
Aloha Ambrosia is suited for all skin types. I have combination skin and I didn't have any problems with pore clogging. It's very moisturizing, it makes my skin soft and supple. LOVE. Leahlani, you can take all my money. :)

You can get it at Leahlani Skincare shop or at Reina Organics (if you live in Europe).

Aloha!
