Lovinah Supernatural Skincare & Makeup Review

Lovinah Supernatural Skincare is a corrective all-natural line of luxurious products formulated to target premature aging, hormonal challenges, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and acne using age-old, potent African ingredients. Lovinah combines the healing herbal traditions of Africa with modern technology to create products that are slow crafted in micro batches. Over the last few years I’ve been able to try out a number of their natural makeup and skincare products, which are all absolute treasures. Grab Boxwalla’s Lovinah Discovery Box  which includes 2 full-size Lovinah skincare products.

The founder Joy Ekhator hails from Nigeria, where she learned the healing powers of nature through her grandmother, an herbalist, traditional doctor, bone setter and midwife. Fast forward to adulthood and Joy had three children in three years which caused a severe hormonal imbalance and cystic acne, not to mention the skin ailments her young children suffered. Fast forward again and Lovinah is created and is now a full-blown skincare and makeup brand.

Lovinah brings to life ancient African beauty rituals modified for the modern world using traditional herbs, exotic oils and extracts perfected by technology. The all-natural skincare brand recently launched their own supernatural makeup products — and they are stunning. Talk about godDESS vibes.

I’ve been using the Lovinah Glow Goddess Eyeshadow Palette for about a year now and my friend Mila of GreenMilaMonster tested the Eye Magic Eyeshadow Palette for me. Read on for my Lovinah Eyeshadow Palette review!

Lovinah Eyeshadow Palette

Based in Nilotica, Squalane and crushed gemstones, Lovinah Eyeshadow Palettes come in ten shades and are ultra pigmented, rich and velvety. They offer magnetic application and are long lasting. If you like a good amount of shimmer, Lovinah’s got it.

The Glow Goddess Eyeshadow Palette has eight shimmer shades and two matte shades. While I don’t use the red and blue shades for an everyday look, these are fun to play around with. The black matte shade is so richly pigmented that I use it with my angled eye makeup brush to apply it as eyeliner.

It’s based in Nilotica, Squalane and Lactobacillus Ferment and lasts for most of the day. I love that this is an eyeliner pen and the shiny black and geometric design of the packaging feels so luxurious everytime I use it. You have to be careful to close the cap properly each time otherwise the product will dry out.

Thanks to the Boxwalla subscription box that the founder Lavanya generously sends over to me I’ve been able to try out Lovina’s skincare line which is truly the heart of the brand even though their makeup products are also standouts. These are luxury products with advanced ingredients, each offering something unique and different than much of what’s available in the clean beauty market today.

Dragon-C Vitamin C & Bio-Retinol Brightening Elixir ($150)

This red-hued Brightening Elixir is actually a lightweight face oil concocted with an impressive array of pure ingredients alongside actives. It’s not everyday you see a face oil that begins with a base of Dragon Fruit Seed Oil, so it’s immediately apparent that this is a unique formulation. 30% of the entire formula is Vitamin C so this is an antioxidant focused product even though it also has a natural retinol alternative included. Dragon-C also contains Rambutan extract, another sensitive skin-friendly retinol alternative, which is sustainably harvested from Vietnam and promotes skin elasticity.

Have you ever heard of Harakeke Seed Oil? Neither had I until I started using this Lovinah product. It’s rich in Linoleic Fatty Acids that promote ceramide production for a healthily functioning skin barrier.

I’ve noticed that Lovinah skincare products are heavy on scent, especially sweet scents. While many brands will lean towards floral or herbaceous and herbal, Lovinah seems to love fruity and gourmand. That’s my perfume nerd coming out, but both Dragon-C and Ocean Rituals Cleansing Balm smell super super sweet.
