The Gaia range always smells so wonderful and this was no exception. the scent is quite strong but more natural than other moisturisers i've tried. Being made with so many organic ingredients, i felt guilt free with allowing it to soak into my skin. A little goes a long way and it glide well and my skin drinks it up happily. I'd normally use this but i found that it wasn't enough moisture for my skin (perhaps it's my age).

So Sad It's Gone!
My local Priceline stopped selling this product a few months back which was devastating because I really loved it and used it every single day. I've since switched to Garnier as I live rurally and it's not available cheaply online to get it delivered (boo).
It's a really light moisturiser which sinks in so quickly and effortlessly. It has a very mild fragrance and the pump bottle means that you can always get right to the last drop of product without having to swueeze. The bottle itself is also really gorgeous to have standing in the collection out on view.
I haven't found anyone (and I have had a lot of friends allergic to different things use it) who has a reaction to this moisturiser - I have even used it on my 3 year old daughters hands and she's gone around smelling them - cute and trustworthy.

Comforting & Soothing
I find this moisturiser lovely and light but not overly light so it still adequately moisturises my mid-40's skin. It's white, smells delicately herbal/botancial but only faintly which is lovely for sensitive skin. I found this moisturiser goes perfectly hand in hand with the Gaia Foaming Cleanser for a real natural cleansing and refreshing experience.
This moisturiser really does feel like it is doing my skin some nutritional good and leaves a beautiful texture which is between matte and dewy. It's not at all greasy so it's perfect for my combination skin type (I have patches of normal, oily, dry and dehydrated plus aging!). It says on the packaging that it's a sensitive skin formula so it would probably be good for my 15 year old who has sensitive skin too. I must let her try some!

Fantastic organic moisturiser
I received a sample of this moisturiser and immediately became a fan. I feels relatively light and sinks into my skin easily. I find it hydrates my skin well without making my T zone oily. It leaves my skin soft but when I first applied it it slightly tingled my skin. I'm a fan of the smell and it is very evenly priced. I will definitely go out and buy this product

I like it!
I just received a sample of this and I was a little hesitant to try it because it has a fragrance in it, and my face is sensitive, but on the sachet it does say it's for sensitive skin so I gave it a go. I was surprised, I actually really like like! It absorbed really quickly into my skin and my skin looked and felt reallly hydrated afterwards, and I think a bit younger too. I typically have really dry skin that can be a bit flaky and I have a lot of redness that is quite often exacerbated when I used products on my skin, but my skin was no more pinker after using the product than it was before applying it. You don't need to use much, I've used my sample sachet three times already and it'll last one more for tonight. I'm going to buy this product when I run out of my Simple moisturiser (I think the Simple one is ok but it's just not doing it for me 'cause I'm still getting flaky skin).

Slightly irritated my skin
I like Gaia and support their production of skincare free from chemical irritants. However, despite consisting of natural ingredients this moisturiser irritated my skin slightly.
The consistency of the lotion is light and soft. I found it had a greasy feel as I rubbed it in and it felt mask like. It then began to tingle uncomfortably and this lasted for about a minute. Due to this reaction I will not be using this product again.

Lavender & Frankincense Great For Skin
GAIA Lavender & Frankincense Facial Moisturiser has a sample sachet for consumers to try, compliments from GAIA.
The facial moisturiser is for normal/combination skin, the formula being suitable for sensitive skin having certified organic jojoba oil, evening primrose oil and ginseng in the mix.
After cleansing and toning, I apply a small amount of the white lightweight facial maoisturiser to my face and neck, massaging into skin.
The moisturiser absorbs into skin well, leaving skin feeling smooth and soft. The formula of the moisturiser is not sticky or oily, it protects skin from the elements, much like a barrier cream, as well as having a nourishing and hydrating effect on skin.
The moisturiser has a rich fragrance of lavender & frankincense, a soothing aroma.
I find the facial moisturiser a nice change, having the organic, pure and natural ingredients.
GAIA Lavender & Frankincense Facial Moisturiser can be purchased from Priceline and is Australian Made and Owned.

My lavender scented goddess
Love this the smell is absolutely phenomenal I am a major fan of all this lavender and the scent blows my mind! It is super light weight which if your like me with combination skin is great as it absorbs quickly and goes all day without making you greasy and leaves skin soft supple and refreshed! For the price everyone should have this in the bathroom!

This is quite a nice moisturiser.
At first when I used it on my face it was fine but then a got a couple of minor breakouts. Nothing too big. It must have been from the essential oils or something like that. My skin has the tendency to be a little sensitive at times. So I stopped using it on my face and am now using it on my body instead, and I think it works wonderfully! It has a nice, fresh scent and absorbs very quickly. The pump makes it easy to dispense the product and it has lasted fairly well. My skin always feels so nourished and soft after using this and I love how there's no nasties in it. Also the price is very reasonable too.
Overall, I think it's a pretty good buy. (:
