LivOliv are a brand that I came across via social media, and I instantly fell in love with their products. LivOliv is a family run company based in Poole, and all of their products are Non-Toxic, Vegan and Cruelty Free (they have also joined PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies Program)! Their nail polishes are absolutely beautiful and there is a massive range of colours, along with their luxurious hand creams and cuticle oils this is a brand I know will become my holy grail for anything hand and nail related!
I am so excited to be collaborating with LivOliv and have chosen one of their gorgeous Gift Boxes to dive into! There are 2 variations of gift boxes depending on which size of nail polish you would like, and for this review I have the 10ml Version priced at £29.99. Individually, the nail polishes are £8.99 for a 10ml bottle – although if you are wanting to try out various shades there are also 5ml options for just £4.99! The Gift Boxes include 3 nail polishes of your choice, along with a hand cream (usually £7.50) and cuticle oil (usually £3.99) – again both of your choice! The value of this gift box is incredible, and being able to completely personalize its’ contents is amazing!
LivOliv breaks down its huge selection of shades into categories, and as I am obsessed with all things bronze I chose my 3 colours from the Brown & Copper selection.
The application of these nail polishes is an absolute dream. They are the perfect consistency – not too thick making it difficult to get a smooth application, but also thick enough to have complete control. The pigment is beautiful, and 2 coats gives a stunning full coverage finish. Another thing that I love is the drying time! I am quite an impatient person when it comes to drying nail varnish, but these polishes dry within minutes making it super easy to apply a quick second coat and be done! The shine of these are incredible, and LivOliv also has Top and Base Coats (including a Matte Top Coat!) along with a Nail Polish Thinner to replace the ingredients that evaporate when older polishes become a little “tired”.
Hand Cream and Cuticle Oil
For my Gift Box I chose the Sweet Orange and Rose hand cream, with the matching Cuticle Oil with Rose Oil. Starting with the hand cream, the packaging is so chic! It comes in a twist top tin and looks so elegant. The consistency of this is on the thicker side, and feels intensely nourishing and luxurious. The scent is exactly as imagined, a subtle sweet orange undertone with a feminine rose fragrance to top it off. Delicious! Because of its thick consistency a little goes a very long way, so it really will last for ages. It soaks into the skin beautifully, leaving hands soft and moisturized but not tacky or sticky.
The Cuticle Oil with Rose Oil is a new favourite in my beauty routine which is a welcome surprise. I am usually one to forget about using a cuticle oil, but this smells so delectable it is so addictive! You can see the results instantly with this, and the results last. It makes nails looks so healthy and genuinely cared for, and melts into the cuticles leaving behind a stunning glow and subtle rose scent. The packaging of this is genius, a “clicker” style brush that makes application so easy and clean – no mess or product wastage!
I am so happy to have found LivOliv. The quality of their products is just incredible for such an affordable price. They also stock natural handmade soaps from Lucy’s Soap Kitchen which look so indulgent!
LivOliv will be on Stand no.1 at the Portsmouth Vegan Festival on Sunday 4th March 2018.
I am beyond impressed with all of the products I have tried so far, and their shade selection of nail polishes is ridiculously brilliant. There is literally a shade for every occasion or style – I can’t wait to build up my collection!
