Olivanna London Skincare : An Introduction.

I wanted to chat about a skincare brand that recently got onto my radar and I’ve been really enjoying discovering the brand with a few products I have been sent. In short, Olivanna London Skincare is a luxurious, British, plant-powered and science-backed skincare range.

Janine Summers created Olivanna to empower and inspire women. She is also the founder of My Olivanna, which is a skincare range targeted towards teens and younger ladies. I had a quick look on their website and I love the idea of this range – and the packaging looks really good. Olivanna, the range I am talking about here, has been created for a slightly older audience than the teens : so the formulas are a little more intricate and powerful with a focus on high-performance ingredients and botanicals. Olivanna London skincare is dermatologically and ophthalmology tested and supported by independent clinical trials.

Janine, the founder was an early adopter of organic and natural beauty. Olivanna’s plant-powered formulas look to the seasons and the British countryside for inspiration. Its luxury, clinically proven and sustainable skincare using British-grown ingredients! It’s also formulated and manufactured in the UK. The skincare is packaged in gorgeous artisan glass bottles that have been handcrafted by one of the last remaining family-owned glassmakers in the country.

It’s a skincare brand that seems to exude anything British! So let’s look into some of the products..

Olivanna London Rosewater & Chamomile Cream Cleanser (£36)

This silky omega-rich cleanser melts away make-up and impurities with a powerful blend of British-grown seed oils that nourish and protect the skin barrier from environmental aggressors and daily pollutants.

This is the first product I picked up from Olivanna London and honestly – love it! I don’t have a lot of cream cleansers in my arsenal as I more-often-than-not prefer a balm but this is one of my favourite cream cleansers ever. It is super gentle, non-stripping yet removes my makeup well and leaves skin feeling really pampered and comfortable.

It is clinically proven to reduce redness and calm inflammation and it has been scientifically formulated to provide immediate and long-lasting hydration. I have had a really awful skin reaction this last week and this has been my go-to cleanser. 

Key ingredients:

It is enriched with the Olivanna London signature anti-inflammatory soothing complex, comprising of rosemary extract, cornflower and organic chamomile extracts. Rose water and aloe vera work to combat inflammation, refresh and rehydrate, whilst glycerin and squalane restore skin’s balance and helps to reduce moisture loss for skin that looks and feels supple and luminous. 

I think this is a beautiful cleanser, and one that I have been reaching for more and more over the cooler months, as my skin came become more reactive, red and just needs a little more comfort and soothing. It is super calming and gentle and I would recommend anyone with any skin type to try this as a cream cleanser go-to. Gorgeous formula!
