Thanks Avya for sponsoring this post, like always all opinions are 100% my own
Hey loves! Happy Wednesday! We are more than half way to yet another weekend! You have heard me preach a lot about skincare lately and my goal for 2018 to invest in quality skincare and get into a better routine after turning 30, well I have been lucky enough to try out a new skincare line called AVYA and I also got to have a phone chat with the co-founder Deepika Vyas and spoiler alert these product are pretty amazing!
AVYA was created by Deepika Vyas, a pharmacist who has lived in 3 different countries and is knowledgable in high end pure ingredients, and Dr. Tanuj Nakra, a cosmetic facial surgeon who is knowledgable in the molecular pathway of melanin, which is crucial for anti-aging. When I got the chance to speak with Deepika I learned so much about the science behind skincare and a lot about their amazing ingredients! Their motto for AVYA is ‘unconditional’ because they want the products to make you feel unconditional with their ingredients. AVYA has been developed to address the skin care challenges faced by women with different levels of melanin, so basically no mater what your skin tone is, AVYA will give you amazing results. Honestly, before learning about AVYA I never knew melanin made a difference in what skin care to use and what may work for me may not work as well on someone with darker skin and they wanted to make sure women with darker skin aka high melanin had a luxury skin care line that gave them amazing results as well!
Now on to the ingredients! AVYA took the unique approach of formulating their products around ancient ingredients, turmeric, neem, and peony extract. These ingredients work together to fight inflammation, stimulate the body’s own antioxidants, prevents acne with antibacterial agents, diminish pore size, and makes your skin glow. Also the peony extract makes the products smell AMAZING! Seriously I am weird with smells and the fragrance is so luxurious! The serum also has pure vitamin c to soothe, and the eye cream has caffeine to brighten the eyes!
So how did I like the products? First off the packaging is absolutely gorgeous and everything I expected from a high end skin care line. Opening the box just made me feel special and even the individual boxes feel luxe and soft! Also the rose gold accents, what girl wouldn’t love that?! Honestly, just after a few uses I felt like my skin was more glowy with a lot less redness, and my eyes were less puffy! I get really bad puffy eyes so I have been using the cream morning and night and have seen a huge improvement! Also I just have to state again on how amazing it smells! The price is pretty steep since it is on the high end side for skin care so I asked Deepika if you could only buy one of the products out of the line which would it be and she said definitely the serum! It’s packed with vitamin c and has a high concentration of all the ingredients. Also, she mentioned that she was super picky on where she got the ingredients since not all plants are created equal so all of them are from larger companies from US or France.
Sorry that was a lot but I just learned so much about skin care from Deepika and her passion for this line really shows! They definitely have snagged me as a customer and I cannot wait to see my more long term results! I hope you all have an amazing Wednesday! <3
