Product Review:) Naked by Lisa Hayden Potion Lotion

Today we'll do a quick look at this new product I got. Its called Naked by Lisa Hayden Potion Lotion. It came in my January Fab Bag. You can get it here
  It comes in a transparent glass jar with a golden screw cap and lettering. There is a little note about the product, on handmade paper attached to the neck of the jar with a thin jute string. Gives it a nice homey touch.
As you can see the little note tells you something about the product and its usage

This is how Fab Bag describes this product:

I got a 30 gram jar which is priced at INR 310/-

If you notice, the product has to be used within 3 months of manufacture (though the Fab Bag description says 6 months), since there are supposed to be no preservatives in the product.

List of Ingredients and their benefits:

  1.  Aloe Vera: good for sunburns and acne, lightens stretch marks. Great moisturiser, fughts skin ageing. 
  2. Alpha Tocopherol (Vit E) oilBecause of its antioxidant activity, vitamin E helps combat the damaging effects on your skin of free radicals, which come from various sources including pollution, UV radiation, poor nutrition, and as a result of aging.
  3. Rosehip oil:contains:
    - linoleic acid (omega- 6 fatty acid) which can play a role in the structure of the membranes of the cells
    - oleic acid (omega-9 fatty acid) which is considered as keeping skin supple and moist
    - linolenic acid (omega-3 fatty acid) is a good skin moisturiser
    - antioxidants, beta-carotene, lycopene and vitamin C, which are important for protection from free radical damage
  4. Persea Americana (avocado) oil:
    rich in vitamins A, D and E, lecithin, as well as potassium - known as the youth mineral. It is also high in sterolins, which are reputed to reduce age spots reduce age spots, help heal sun damage and scars. It is the sterolins (also called plant steroids) in the oil that helps to soften the skin and imparts a superior moisturizing effect.
  5. Geranium oil: is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antiseptic
  6. Lavender oil: antiviral, bacterial and anti-inflammatory, calming

What the product looks like: It is a thick white lotion. It is not hard like the consistency of Boroplus, nor is it too runny.It has a light and fluffy texture. It has a light fresh floral fragrance which I quite like.
Product swatch:

This is how it looks immediately after blending in. But the lotion gets absorbed pretty quickly into the skin .

My experience with the product:
The Jar is nice and compact and the product does not leak out. It has a nice soft floral scent which I like. The product is light and absorbs easily into my skin. and does not look oily. It has not caused me to break out either, so that's good!

1. No chemical preservatives
2. Nice fragrance
3. Good texture
4. Does not leave skin feeling oily and loaded
5. Good leak-proof packaging, understated looks.

1. Bit expensive
2. Short shelf-life

Overall Rating:
4.75/5. This product loses marks more due the cost factor than anything else. The greatest thing about this product is that it has no chemical based preservatives!!

Will I buy this product again? YES
