Over the last few weeks I have been excitedly testing out some new skin care products. I’m always particularly thrilled when the brand uses ingredients are 100% natural. This was the very case with Havvn, who have developed a line called DNA Skin Care.
The very first thing I noticed was this:
I’m always happy to see a label that looks like this!
The system consists of 3 creams (and a toner/cleanser as well); one for Day, Night and an Activator (hence, DNA) that helps to aid both the day and night cream in their absorption.
The products are housed in tubes with tops that twist up to reveal a pump. The pump locks back in place making it convenient for travel. The one thing I don’t like is that the Activating cream needs to be used twice as often as the day/night cream but you get the same amount as the other two. I realize it keeps the continuity of the packaging but, it’s something worth noting.
Textures: Day, Night, Activator
I did like the way all three creams felt, and the way they sunk into my skin. They were not too heavy for my oily/combination skin- a common problem for me. I was warned in advance that the textures and scents of the creams would probably feel unfamiliar to me- and they do. Since they are none of the usual suspects in terms of ingredients I’m used to (and perfumes, dyes). They felt somewhat sticky to the touch, but once applied felt very smooth. I also noticed that the day cream smells fruity, but I can’t really pinpoint what the other two smell like. Vegetables maybe? They aren’t offensive, but certainly different than what I’m used to.
My skin feels smooth and hydrated, but not weighed down. Although I’m in my mid-twenties and don’t really have signs of aging yet, I do think this helped smooth out around my eye area, and underneath them.
The bottom line: If you are someone who really insists that your skin care is natural or are looking for something new to try, this would probably be a good place to start. You can purchase the Havvn DNA Skin Care System from their website here. The three creams come in a set and it retails for $79.99.
How do you feel about your skin care? Are you more skeptical of some ingredients over others?
