Product review rave!
So I’m going to do this review a bit differently… instead of delaying the point, I’m going to forgo the introduction and just start with saying: I love VMV Hypoallergenics Illuminants+ Face + Hand + Body + Lotion. Now that that’s out of the way, I can continue on to share all the great features of this product! I figured I should state my bias upfront, just to be fair. VMV Hypoallergenics has a winner here in its Illuminating Face + Hand + Body Lotion.
As my moniker suggests, I really like to keep it simple and stick to the basics. Minimal is the word. I love good quality double duty products, and I’ve gotten into the habit of making my own.
I have pretty temperamental skin, so when I read that it was good as a facial moisturizer, I shrugged. After a hideous experience years ago, I learned I could never, ever put lotion on my face.
While I’m not interested in ‘brightening’ my deep complexion, I do have some dark spots and small blemishes that could use evening out. This is especially useful since I don’t wear foundation or cover-up with any sort of regularity.
“This rich body moisturiser contains gentle concentrations Unbuffered Glycolic Acid for impressive micro-exfoliation, plus Kojic Acid and Melfade, excellent Tyrosinase Inhibitors, to prevent melanin overproduction. Extends Illuminants Multi-Level Skin Lightening and Hyperpigmentation therapy to arms, legs and body skin. Leaves skin softer, more even-toned, and brighter.”
VMV’s Illuminants Face + Hand + Body Lotion is certified VH – 27 (free of all known cosmetic allergens). It is also 100% Fragrance/Preservative Free, and Non-Comedogenic meaning it won’t clog pores!
Another plus? VMV’s uses pro-planet packaging. According to the 100% recycled information brochure attached to the recycleable bottle, VMV is “100% skin love” with the environment! They consciously use eco-friendly supplies and cut waste by eliminating boxes whenever possible. What more could you ask for in a body care product?
- Gave me a nice healthy “glow” without leaving residue
- Feels great going on, absorbs easily
- Long lasting moisturizer, somehow managed to smooth out rough areas and hydrate drier skin without being oily
- Truly an all purpose-product! Really does work on face, hands and body
I give VMV Illuminants Body Brilliance Lotion 5 Blings!
