Lavera is a German cosmetics company that manufactures skin care, body & bath, and makeup products. Lavera markets itself as a natural cosmetics company. The Lavera Faces line includes cleansers, toners and moisturizers. Although none of the Lavera Faces line claims any anti-wrinkle benefit, the Faces Wild Rose Liposome Intensive Cream promises protection from environmental pollutants, which tend to damage and age the skin prematurely.
All Lavera Faces products can be purchased from the official website. We like the fact that free product samples are available and new users can select up to a maximum of three. This allows the consumer to try out the products before purchase. This is generally a sign of a skin care company that believes in its products. However, another sign of a company that stands behind its products is a money-back guarantee. We were unable to locate any details of one on the Lavera website.
The ingredient list for Lavera Faces Wild Rose Liposome Intensive Cream is a long one at approximately 35 ingredients. The consumer may think that the more ingredients, the better the odds are that the product will work. This is often not the case. For us, the two standout ingredients in the formulation are hyaluronic acid and squalane. Hyaluronic acid can hold over 1,000 times its own weight in water and has been independently proven to deeply hydrate the skin. Squalane is an oil that is very similar to the oils in human skin. This allows it to penetrate deeply and moisturize the skin while providing a barrier against harmful environmental damage.
An ingredient that we do not particularly like is grain alcohol. Grain alcohol is drying to the skin and, while it can be effective for young oily skin, it may not be appropriate for more mature skin, where the goal is to increase moisture, not take it away. What this product doesn’t include are clinically-proven ingredients like collagen, and peptides like Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline. These can have a significant impact in the fight against wrinkles.
- Contains hyaluronic acid and squalane.
- Available for purchase on the company website.
- Does not contain ingredients that are proven to soothe and rejuvenate aging skin.
- No money-back guarantee offered.
- Contains grain alcohol.
- Not labeled as non-allergenic.
The Bottom Line
There are so many skin care products on the anti-aging market today, it can seem overwhelming to try to choose one. However, the simple fact is that you need a skin care product that is proven effective and whose company stands behind it with a money-back guarantee. While the Lavera Faces products do not claim to reduce wrinkles, many consumers will use them for those purposes. We suggest that you seek out a product that contains ingredients such as Matrixyl 3000, collagen, or Argiriline if you’re serious about fighting aging.
