I had an opportunity to try natural skincare line by Aviendo, the company based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Even though the company has opened not too long, I feel they’re quickly aiming for the leaders position in the natural skincare market since 1. they are local and affordable, 2. natural, 3. firming and refreshing.
Aviendo is a company and a concept which has a goal, as they claim, to “enrich and inspire” promoting health-giving lifestyles. Being passionate for pure and natural products, Aviendo offers a wide variety of skincare products including facial creams, serums, eye care products, body moisturizers and cleansers.
If I had to be honest, I did not hear about the company before I tried the products. After receiving the products, I started following the company and was positively amazed with their positive, inspirational message that they send to users worldwide, yet mainly in Denmark. I liked the clear product description on their page and inspiring posts on their Facebook page, which definitely made me smile. It seems that the company is not only focusing on clean and healthy skincare, but rather on a healthy lifestyle and daily inspiration. Besides, I liked the fact that Aviendo offers a relatively small range of products, which made me sure that they rather focus on skincare and try to improve the level of their offerings instead of offering a wide range of so-so products.
I had a chance to try Aviendo’s extra firming aloe vera day and night face creams. After using both facial creams for about 2 weeks I have noticed that my skin got a healthy glow. Since both products should rather be used together for the best result, I did apply a small amount of day cream in the morning, after having washed my face, and a small amount of a night cream before going to bed. The first impression was great: I did feel the firming effect, skin absorbed the cream very quickly (so I did not have to go sleep with the oily face…) and it had a natural, pleasant smell.
According to Aviendo, creams are supposed to improve the overall structure of the skin creating natural firmness and binding moisture. Since both creams contain aloe vera extract, one should expect the skin to get protected from damage. Even though I actually have 5-6 different facial creams on my shelve in the bathroom, I currently am still using Aviendo. Could be a nice coincidence since I started eating healthy, too, but I have noticed that my small pimples on my cheeks disappeared as well.
+ Natural, pleasant smell
+ Simple packaging
+ Pumps (i.e. easy to use)
+ Great texture
+ Skin absorbs creams really quickly
+ A noticeable glowing effect after the usage
- Pumps would sometimes stop working
- Cream does not get absorbed too quickly if the face is damp
Even though the company is relatively new in the market, it seems that they are doing a good job when it comes to marketing healthy lifestyles and natural skincare products.
