Earlier this year, I was looking for an affordable cruelty-free and vegan face moisturizer. I love the Natural Hawaiian Oil Free Moisturizer from Alba Botanica, but it’s a bit pricey for the amount you get — it’s worth it, but pricey nonetheless! Well, I was pleasantly surprised when I came across the Daily Soothing Moisturizer from Aleva Naturals. It’s actually a face and body moisturizer for babies and toddlers, but I figured if it’s gentle and moisturizing enough to be applied to a baby’s skin, then it would work for me! So, I decided to give it a try and I was really surprised at how much I liked it! Keep reading to find out more about it (and my thoughts on it)!

My Thoughts: This moisturizer is amazing! It feels so good on my skin — it’s soothing, moisturizing, and it’s not greasy (which I was a bit unsure about before buying it). It sinks in so quickly and it leaves my skin feeling light, hydrated, and soft. I also find it helps give my skin a nice healthy glow! I like to apply this moisturizer after I’ve cleansed my skin to help it maintain its moisture. I only take a tiny bit of it and apply it all over my face and neck. A pea-sized amount is more than enough to moisturize my skin. The scent is very gentle; it has a really light citrus scent to it, but it’s very mild. The best part about this moisturizer is that there are no chemicals — which has become so important to me over the last few months because anything we put on our skin is absorbed into our bodies. This moisturizer is such good quality and is so affordable compared to other facial moisturizers. I will, without a doubt, be repurchasing it once I’ve used it up!
