Get that aloha glow!
Whether you’re the type of person to jump out of bed before the sun or hit the snooze button on repeat, we have the perfect addition to your morning skincare ritual. Our Aloha Ambrosia Morning Moisture Elixir is lavishly overflowing with youth enhancing antioxidants and vitamins from organic mangosteen, goji berry, guava, kiwi, and passionfruit oils. Aloha Ambrosia is an exotic feast for your skin, and she will infuse each cell with the essential nutrients it needs throughout the day to keep your complexion perfectly moisturized and wholly nourished. Her feather light consistency and silken texture absorbs instantly, giving your skin that signature Leahlani aloha-glow!
If you have felt hesitant to use oil rather than a traditional cream moisturizer, trust me, we have all been there. While it may seem a bit scary at first, we promise, you will never look back. Our elixirs are made without water, waxes, and fillers, leaving only the active and beneficial ingredients that your skin will eat right up. Because Aloha Ambrosia does not contain any water in her formulation, we strongly recommend applying them to a moist face. Why do this? I like to use the wet sponge/dry sponge analogy. A dry sponge is not able to absorb as much moisture as a damp sponge can- the same metaphor applies to the skin. Your skin will absorb your Elixirs and Serums faster and more effectively when applied to a damp or moist face. There are a few ways you can go about doing this, you may mist your face with either our Citrus & Citrine or Bohemian Ruby toner first, and then apply one pump of Elixir to your skin or you can simply splash your face with warm water and 'pat' dry, and then apply your Elixir. She makes for the perfect makeup primer, and also mixes beautifully with our serums, Bless Beauty Balm and facial masks (add a pump to our Meli GLOW Nectar Mask for a serious treat!). She is a true gem!
Aloha Ambrosia has an olive squalane oil base. Squalane is something our bodies naturally produce in the skin and it diminishes as we age. You can find squalane in olive pits and other natural sources like sugar cane and rice bran. This oil can penetrate deep into the skin while pulling in other ingredients with it. This is why we’ve paired her with some of our favorite skin-loving antioxidant and vitamin rich oils. Squalane oil won't irritate the skin and it is non-comedogenic, and It’s water-like consistency has no scent and no color. It’s a wonderful oil for people with sensitive skin and balances oil production to those with oily complexions. Squalane will also help to prevent UV damage and the formation of age spots while promoting new cell growth. We're big fans!
Aloha Ambrosia smells of jasmine flowers and tropical rain showers. Her delicate jasmine scent is heavenly and connects with the heart, awakening romantic and poetic feelings while evoking a happy state of being. Jasmine stimulates the release of serotonin, which results in an uplifted mood and a burst of creative energy- the perfect way to start the day for your skin and spirit.
