Beauty Review of DeVita Anti-Aging Try-Me Kit -Vegan

posted by Melissa Huggins October 14, 2015 0 comments

I really love purchasing trial kits from beauty companies. It’s a great way to try out a good portion of their products, without wasting money. I have found so many products I love, by doing it this way. I also love to buy trial kits for travel…they ‘re usually TSA friendly. No more leaking products in your check-in bags.

I recently bought this Devita Anti-Aging trial kit. Currently, I already use some Devita skin care products. I love the Solar Face & Body moisturizer… I’ve been using it for years. It’s a great sun protector with all natural minerals. I also use the Evening Nutritional Moisturizer & Hyaluronic Serugel. They both makes my skin soft, smooth & glowy!

I loved Devita already, because of their non-toxic & vegan ingredients. So,  I was very excited to try  their other products out. This kit comes with 9 trial size products and It was only $19.95.

I do not work for Devita in any way, I just love their products and want to share my honest review with my readers.


This is what comes in the anti-aging kit:

Aloe Vera Moisture Cleanser

The name says it all! This truly is a great moisturizing cleanser. I usually go for the creamy cleansers, but this one is also nice, because it’s moisturizing and has a hint of lather, which is derived from natural soapwort extract. My face felt clean and refreshed and not over dried. It’s not heavy or greasy and it’s non-comedogenic. The jojoba oil and vitamin E, restores and balances the moisture to your skin.

This cleanser is lightly and beautifully scented with rose, geranium, chamomile and lavender essential oils. These oils are calming to your senses and your skin. I really love this cleanser and will be keeping it in my beauty routine.

INGREDIENTS: Aloe barbadensis (certified organic aloe vera gel), Saponaria officialis (soapwort) extract, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Lecithin phospholipid, Prunus serotina (cherry bark) extract, Tropaeolum majus (cress) extract, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, Panthenol (vitamin B5), Capric/caprylic triglycerides (derived from coconut), Cinchona calisaya (cinchona), Pelargonium graveolens (geranium) essential oil, Rosa damascena (rose) oil, Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower essential oil, Lavandula officinalis (lavender) essential oil, Tocopherol (vitamin E).

Gentle Aloe Facial Scrub

Again, the name says it all! It really is a gentle facial scrub. I tend to stay clear of facial scrubs because they can be irritating to my skin. Well, this one was light and gentle and my skin felt soft and smooth. It gently removed the dead skin and left a nice glow behind. This scrub contains healing goldenseal and  pure round jojoba Beads which will not tear the skin like more abrasive scrubs. This scrub also prepares your skin for better absorption of their serums and moisturizers.

INGREDIENTS: Aloe barbadensis* (certified organic aloe vera gel), Saponaria officialis (soapwort) extract, Jojoba esters (beads), Sorbitol, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Hydrastis canadensis (golden seal) extract, Sodium chloride, Allantoin, Vitis vinifera (grape) seed extract.

Cool Cucumber Toner

A skin care regime, cannot be complete without the use of a good toner. I alway tone my skin after washing. It helps to tighten my pores and remove any excess residue left over.  Toner also helps prepare your skin for moisturizers, serums and other facial treatments.

The smell is so divine ! So refreshing, yet calming! This comes from the essential oils of cucumber and chamomile. My face feels clean, soft and smells great! My face didn’t feel dry or stripped at all. It felt smooth, fresh and moisturized. This toner is great for all skin types, and it’s made for daily use. It has soothing allantoin and Japanese green tea to help calm redness or breakouts. My skin loves that!

INGREDIENTS: Aloe barbadensis (certified organic aloe vera gel), Hamamelis virginiana distillate (witch hazel) extract, Lactic acid (natural fruit acid), Maleic acid (natural fruit acid), Glycolic acid (natural fruit acid), Camellia sinensis (Japanese green tea) leaf extract, Allantoin, Cucumis sativus (cucumber) extract, Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower essential oil.

 

Moroccan Rose Facial Toner

Let me just say, that the smell is beautiful! Like fresh roses, but  very light and natural. Rose oil is known for it’s astringent properties, along with it’s toning and anti-inflammatory abilities. This toner made my skin feel so smooth, and really took down any redness I had. I have very sensitive and combination skin. My face was happy with this toner.

For this toner, Devita uses a gentle blend of naturally active fruit acids, to give your skin a smooth and soft texture. While, the natural astringents of rosemary and sage reduce the look of pore size. It really freshened and tightened my skin.

This kit comes with two toners, but you only need one for your cleansing routine. Of course, you can buy both and switch on and off, from day-to-day, to get different benefits from the different ingredients. This kit is a great way to find out which one you like better, without buying the full sizes.

Ok, this is tough because I really like both, but if I had to choose one, I would choose the Cool Cucumber Toner. I like the calming yet refreshing scent it gives off. As far as the way they work, my skin felt fantastic with both of them and gave my skin a clean, fresh feeling. So, I’m merely just choosing my favorite scent with this. Again, I like the rose scent a lot, but for a daily basis I will go with the cucumber toner.

INGREDIENTS: Aloe barbadensis (certified organic aloe vera gel), Hamamelis virginiana distillate (witch hazel) extract, Lactic acid (natural fruit acid), Maleic acid (natural fruit acid), Glycolic acid (natural fruit acid), Camellia sinensis (Japanese green tea) leaf extract, Allantoin, Rosa centifolia (rose) essential oil, Salvia officinalis (sage) essential oil, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) essential oil, Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower essential oil.

 

Hyaluronic Serugel

Ok, this powerful gel was already in my beauty routine. I love it! I feel like it really helps reduce the signs of aging and keeps my skin plumpy and glowing. I never go without it. My skin is always hydrated! Hyaluronic acid is your skin’s best friend. This little gem, is oil-free and will hydrate your skin, by delivering 65% solution of hyaluronic acid along with aloe vera. Hyaluronic acid gives your skin suppleness and improves elasticity. It absorbs fast into my skin and it feels like I have nothing on. No residual feeling.


INGREDIENTS:
Aloe barbadensis (certified organic aloe vera gel), Hyaluronic acid (vegan source), Glycerin (vegetable), Fucus vesiculosis (seaweed) extract, NaPCA, Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower seed extract, Vitis vinifera (grape) seed extract. Ingredient labeling adheres to international INCI standards. ACTION: Hyaluronic Acid is a powerful humectant that has the ability to attract moisture from the air and bind that water to skin tissue for a long period of time. This promotes elasticity and suppleness, and minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles by helping plump up the skin. It helps to nourish collagen, soften facial lines, and prevent premature signs of aging. DIRECTIONS: After cleansing and toning, pump serum into palms and gently massage into face, neck, hands or other dry skin areas. Use morning, evening or both. Follow with moisturizer.

 

Optimal Rejuvenation

This is another item that I have in my arsenal of beauty products. I love it! This golden lotion has a combination of DMAE, for lifting and the antioxidant power of, alpha lipoic acid. Also, it contains active amino peptides, nutrients and enzymes to really fight the clock. This makes my skin feel soft, smooth, hydrated and plump.

I use this at night, but it can be used anytime of the day. It’s not greasy or thick. If you have super dry skin, this will be fabulous for your face.

Perfecting Time Moisturizer

I really like the creamy, but light feeling of this moisturizer. It absorbs well and  is a great daytime cream and works well under your makeup routine. No heaviness, cakiness or pore clogging feeling. It goes on light and sheer, but makes your skin feel soft and quenched. This has a nice dose of hyaluronic acid, which keeps your skin plump and hydrated. It’s very soothing to the skin. Wow, It does all that, without the use of harsh chemicals! Good stuff!

INGREDIENTS: Aloe barbadensis (certified organic aloe vera gel), Capric/caprylic triglycerides (derived from coconut), Hyaluronic acid (vegan source), Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower essential oil, Prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Daucus carota (heliocarrot) oil, Acetyl hexapeptide-8 (Argireline™), Glycerol, Palmitoyl tripeptide-5, Beta-glucan (derived from oats), Sisymbrium irio (sisymbrium) oil, Cymbopogon martini (palmarosa) oil, Boswellia carteri (frankincense) essential oil, Aniba rosaeodora (rosewood) oil, Vitis vinifera (grape) seed extract.
Solar Protective Moisturizer 30+

This is my favorite, all-natural mineral, sun screen moisturizer. I have used it everyday for years, and I love it! It’s not heavy or cakey and it protects my skin from the sun. A little sun is very good for our bodies and I try to get at least 20 minutes a day on my bare skin. After that, I like to be protected. Especially, for my face to keep away wrinkles and sun spots.

You don’t need an additional moisturizer with this, but if you want extra hydration, just put on a little after the sunscreen moisturizer has completely absorbed into your skin.

Another good reason I stuck with this one, It didn’t make me breakout. Also, it actually cleared up my skin. This is not a claim of Devita, but just a personal thing that I noticed. My skin was breaking out a lot years ago, and within two weeks of using this, my breakouts reduced to almost none. I do get breakouts from time to time, but nothing like I used to. I’m never giving this stuff up! I have since learned that zinc based lotions, have helped some people with acne, too. This one is great because it’s non-toxic and vegan.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Micronized Zinc Oxide 19%. INACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Aloe barbadensis (certified organic aloe vera gel), Purified Water (aqua), Capric/caprylic triglycerides (derived from coconut oil), Glycerin (vegetable), Hyaluronic acid (vegan source), Glyceryl stearate SE (derived from vegetable oil), Stearic acid, Lecithin phospholipid, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Allantoin, Vitis vinifera (grape) seed extract.

 

 

Evening Nutritional Moisturizer

So, this was the last, but not least product that I tried. I used it at night before bed and I woke up with hydrated and soft skin. No dryness, breakouts or redness. It’s thicker than the daytime moisturizer, but it doesn’t just coat the skin. It really absorbs nicely and protects your skin before sleep. It has a very light, clean scent.

It contains palmitoyl tripeptide-5,  which is a collagen and elastin booster. Also, it has hydrating aloe vera, avocado oil, and my favorite, hyaluronic acid. These powerful, yet natural ingredients will keep your skin looking fresh and young, while you’re fast asleep.

INGREDIENTS: Aloe barbadensis (organic certified aloe vera gel), Capric/caprylic triglycerides (derived from coconut), Lecithin phospholipid, Prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, Hyaluronic acid (vegan source), Palmitoyl tripeptide-5, Persea gratissima (avocado) oil, Triticum vulgare (wheat) germ oil, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Oenothera biennis (evening primrose) oil, Allantoin, Retinol (vitamin A), Beta-glucan (derived from oats), Daucus carota (heliocarrot) oil, Aniba rosaeodora (rosewood) oil, Sisymbrium irio (sisymbrium) oil, Cymbopogon martini (palmarosa) oil, Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower essential oil, Boswellia carteri (frankincense) essential oil, Vitis vinifera (grape) seed extract.

I was in my yard, trying to take a photo of my favorite beauty care line & this is what happened. I swear, that I didn’t set this up. My cats are indoor, but I let them go in the yard, when I’m out there. As you can see, they follow me everywhere. I love this shot!
