Apivita I Review

Apivita I Review

Apivita

I was really looking forward to this one week off. I’ve been so busy the last couple of months and there was no time to write articles.  A while ago I received a box full of Apivita products which I have been using for quite some time now. It’s time to share my thoughts on this brand with you.

A while ago I wrote an entire post about Apivita, a Greek company that has been producing natural beauty products since 1979. This company was founded by 2 pharmacists who got inspired by honeybees,  the biodiversity of Greek Nature and the holistic approach of Hippocrates.  The name Apivita is derived from the Latin words Apis (bee) and Vita (life) which reflects the philosophy of the company – Bees never stop creating value and that’s exactly what the company is all about.

The box included products of all kind: body lotion, a serum, day cream, masks and so on. As I’ve said before in one of my previous posts, I like the overall look of the packaging. These bottles deserve to be on my bathroom shelf, it’s all in the details.

Rose Pepper

Although anti-cellulite products are not something I believe in, I do want to give this a try. There are some top-selling products on the market so I’m really curious.
I received the body cream and serum from the Rose Pepper product line. These products contain a combination of red pepper extract, rose and black pepper which naturally stimulates fat burning. It improves skin elasticity and firmness and revitalizes its appearance. It sounds great, right?

I applied the serum and the body cream once a day on cleansed skin with circular massage movements . The texture is very light and isn’t sticky at all, it nourishes the skin immediately. The scent is probably what I love the most about this product. The combination of spicy pepper and rose is pleasant, I prefer subtle fragrances to strong ones.

Pure Jasmine

Breathing in the scent of jasmine has a relaxing effect. The benefits of drinking jasmine tea have been known for centuries and this botanical has many benefits for your skin as well. Skin care is very sophisticated nowadays, I don’t know half of the ingredients on labels and that’s why I prefer natural products. Inspired by the principles of aromatherapy, this body milk treats skin by leaving it soft and lightly scented. I love how light the texture is, it is quickly absorbed by the skin and does not leave an oily feel.

Aqua Vita & Bee Radiant

My favourite Apivita product is by far the Aqua Vita moisture serum.  Apply this serum with gentle movements morning and night on clean face before using the face cream. Well I repeat myself all over again: the scent of this serum is amazing just as all the other Apivita products. I do use the Bee radiant face cream after I’ve applied the serum and I carry this cream with me everywhere I go.

Royal Honey

Honey’s often used as sweetener but well it might not surprise you that this ingredient has tons of skin benefits too. Honey is often used in face masks because of some of the following benefits: Honey has antibacterial properties, which helps in fighting acne and pimples. Besides that it’s also a very good skin cleanser. Honey is a very effective moisturizer for skin. If you buy this product, APIVITA will donate 20% to the Bee Cause + You will get a FREE Bio-Eco Lip Balm with Honey.

I love honey so I wasn’t surprised that I love this product as well. The scent is amazing and the texture is just as light as all the other Apivita products.

    Ik kende het merk niet, maar de verpakkingen zien er alleszins leuk uit! En jouw foto’s zijn echt prachtig Elien!
