Alva Naturkosmetik Milk and Honey Shower Gel are priced at £6.50. Alva Naturkosmetik Milk and Honey is priced at £8.00
I start with the shower gel
Product claims: – Pampers the body and soul providing warmth and harmony. This wonderful creamy shower and bath sensation protects the skin’s moisture level with organic aloe vera and wheat protein.
aqua, cocamidopropyl betaine, citrus aurantium dulcis fruit water, coco glucoside, sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate, lauryl glucoside, glyceryl oleate, triticum vulgare extract, symphytum officinale extract, aloe barbadensis, glycerin, parfum, sodium phy
Verdict: – The product lathered really well on a shower puff, it is very economical I have been using the product for over a month and there’s still half the tube left. The scent is what I expected; the honey smells divine and good enough to eat. I’m surprised this was in a gel like form, usually milk and honey products are creamy looking. My skin felt very clean, although not nourishing but it preps my skin for the body lotion.
Now onto the body lotion
Product claims: – Milk/honey body lotion pampers the body and soul
aqua, helianthus annuus seed oil, polyglyceryl-3 methylglucose distearate, simmondsia chinensis oil, butyrospermum parkii butter, carapa guaianensis, theobroma grandiflorum, symphytum officinale extract, tocopheryl acetate, algin, galactoarabinan, bisabol
Verdict: – The lotion is thin in consistency; and same with the shower gel the honey smells yummylicious. I was pleasantly surprised that the lotion left my usually dry skin soft and supple this lasted for 24hrs. Maybe it’s because of the shea butter content. Once applied the lotion was instantly absorbed to my skin and left no greasiness. I have used 1/3 of the lotion even when I used it sparingly.
Will I repurchase? Yes to both products, both are great value for money and economical. I look forward to trying the rest of the range
