Hello wonderful people,
Hope you are having a great day.
Today I want you all to meet this young, beautiful and talented girl Prithika Parthasarathy, founder of the Laval skincare brand. I don’t think a brand can be as honest as they are with their products. Read how and why she and her sister came up with the idea of setting up Laval – A brand that is purely based on the herbs and natural extracts here.
Laval is a skincare and body care brand that works on the principle of azure, Veda, and aroma. The products are a perfect mixture of ayurvedic and pure ingredients to strengthen the skin exclusively and create the best version of yourself at an absolutely affordable price. They are free from harmful chemicals like Sulphates, Silicones &Parabens. They are made with the highest quality of ingredients, purest essential oils, certified preservatives, pharma grade color. All the products are dermatologically tested.
Laval is one of the first brands in India to be working on a pure ayurvedic formula with the modern technology of stem cells. Their unique and personalized menus have made them official partners of major spas, group of residences, national corporate chains, and Hotels. Ava Bespoke creates exclusive skin and hair care lines to suit the brand ethos and ambiance. Know more about the brand here.
Now that we have got an overview of what Laval is all about, let us go ahead and quickly know about their products. They offer a wide range of products starting from skincare, body care, hair care to perfumes for both men and women.

Love Lake – Sanitizing & Moisturising Lotion
I got super excited about this product when I got the package from Laval PR team. Sanitizers have become the most important part of our life. There was a point where we were short of sanitizers in the market. But do you feel little itching on your skin after using sanitizer two-three times?
If I tell you that you can moisturize and sanitize at the same time. Yes, exactly, super cool, right? Moisturize and sanitize your body together along with the beautiful fragrance of pink orchids, get 2 in 1 benefits with this rare mix. I can smell this lotion forever. It offers both the properties of a lotion and a sanitizer. Its pleasant fragrance with antibacterial capabilities makes it an inevitable product for body hygiene. No need to worry about the harshness and roughness from the regular sanitizers. I am going to get a larger bottle of this product for sure.
Usage: Squeeze out an adequate amount of lotion on your palms and massage till it is completely absorbed. Apply similarly to other body parts.
Love Lake – Nourishing Body Souffle
The second product on the list from the range of Laval is Love Lake – Nourishing Body Souffle.It is a face and body nourish soufflé’s for normal skin. The first thing that attracted me is it’s texture and the color. It is in this lavish purple color and will melt away into your skin like butter without leaving any greasy residue. The product is very light, hydrating and you can hardly feel it on the skin. You can notice the suppleness from the first time.
It has powerful antioxidants and calming ingredients like olive, grapeseed, lavender oil, gotukula, rose, carrot seed oil, beeswax, and kokum butter. Rose is an excellent skin toner with anti-aging properties while lavender restores skin elasticity. Carrot seed oil gives a glow & fresh look. Beeswax & kokum butter gives moisture to the skin. The rich texture of the soufflés calms the skin and gives it a youthful look with no oily traces. You can use it both day and night.
Usage: Take sufficient quantity and apply luxuriously over the face and body and leave on the skin as a sun protector.
You can get rid of the tan after prolonged exposure to sunlight with the Sunny Side – De-Tan Rice scrub of Laval. It has an array of ingredients that are super beneficial to the skin, powered with mulberry, ashwagandha extract to help remove tan & give your dull skin a fresher look. It is a concentrated citric gel scrub made with brightening oils of orange, lemon which helps to remove tan and make the skin look brighter by exfoliating the dead cells, in-growth, dirt, excess oils from the surface of the skin. Aloe Vera helps in aiding the sunburn and cools your skin naturally. The finely ground apricot and walnut shells leave the skin smooth and brighter.
One thing I liked is that it does not feel harsh on your skin like normal scrub does. I do not have a major tan on my face so it has worked fine for me in one week of use.
Usage: Wet the skin. Take a sufficient amount of scrub and apply over the face & body massaging in a circular motion and leave it on the skin for 5 min and finally rinse off well.
In the same product line as the De-Tan Rice scrub, we have the mask i.e De-Tan & Lightening Mask from Laval. Sunburn, skin tanning, patchy and irritated skin, blemishes, and acne, are some of the million problems it can solve for you.
The damage from UV rays can be reversed literally and allows you to stay worrisome for all your aging concerns: wrinkles, age spots, blotchy or ruddy complexion with the goodness of natural extracts, no chemicals, and bleaching agents. The organic combination of roots and herbs has medical traits thus clarifying the skin naturally. The ingredients list is really impressive. The presence of tender coconut extract and cucumber aids in removing suntan eradicates sunspots and clears dark circles. You will notice a polished look to the skin even just after your first application. I can say my skin feels fresh and breathable after use.
Usage: Cleanse the face. Take 2 tsp (10-15 gms) of the pack and mix to a smooth paste with 2 teaspoons (10ml) of either rose water or raw milk 7 honey. Apply all over the face & neck (avoid eye area). Leave it on 30 min and wash with warm water.

Overall price and quality
The price range starts from Rs 500 and goes till Rs 1200, depending on the product which is affordable in comparison to the quality you are getting. You can get any random thing in the name of organic these days so it is okay to invest a little higher in the brands which are authentic. Take no risk with your health and skin.
The packaging of all the products is super luxurious with golden borders in soothing colors. You can get the fragrance as soon as you loosen up the cover.
I loved using all the products from this brand. The products are made with 100% natural oils and cruelty and chemical-free. Another reason I decided to try their products and write a review because I love their idea of creating a women-centric business. They believe they owe a huge part of Laval’s success to all the women who have worked their honestly and sincerely to make it a popular brand, as it is today. In a country like ours where there is a long way to go for females, I feel proud to be associated with such a brand.
Would I recommend
Yes. Go ahead and try the products in smaller packaging. If you feel satisfied, (which I am sure you will) order the larger one.
