Your Guide to La Mav Skin Care here at Flora & Fauna.
La Mav Organic Skin Care is stunning Australian Skin Care which has been formulated with performance in mind. Combining some of nature's most effective ingredients with La Mav's expertise they have managed to create a range of products to meet specific concerns and provide targeted solutions. All La Mav products are based on the unique, trademarked Three Tier Formula, incorporating Bio Actives, Specialty Oils and Essential Base Ingredients.
La Mav recommends a simple daily skin care routine that will deliver anti ageing results in a few weeks; here's our guide to putting together a skin care routine with La Mav.
La Mav has two cleansers. One is the Daily Cleansing Creme for Normal to Dry/ Sensitive Skin and the other is a refreshing Sweet Orange Foaming Cleanser for Normal to Oily/ Combination Skin.
A toner/ mist is need to hydrate the skin and we recommend using it post cleansing before you apply oils or serums. It can also be used during the day to keep the skin hydrated, particularly useful in air conditioned environments.
La Mav's Rose Hydrating Mist is for Normal to Dry/ Sensitive Skin and the Purifying Toner is for Normal to Oily/ Combination Skin.
Definitely make sure you exfoliate a few times a week (depending on your skin). La Mav has two amazing exfoliators. One is La Mav Jojoba Beads & Argan Oil Scrub which is good for Normal to Dry/ Sensitive Skin. The Argan Oil is incredibly nourishing so it feeds your skin as it exfoliates. The other is La Mav's Cranberry Bio Exfoliating Scrub for Normal to Oily/ Combination Skin. This is a really deep cleansing scrub.
In keeping with skin type La Mav has two masks. The first is a Pink Clay Mask for Normal to Dry/ Sensitive Skin and the other is a Green Clay Mask for Normal to Oily/ Combination Skin. These masks are to be used once or twice a week and help deep clean the skin to remove impurities and help prevent the signs of ageing.
Nectar Therapy Oils
The Nectar Therapy range at La Mav is a stunning range of eight certified organic specialty nectars which complement the existing range of La Mav organic products. You can use these oils post cleansing to nourish your skin. You can follow with a moisturiser or even add a little bit of oil to a moisturiser. They are great to be used at night as an overnight treatment and you can also use them with oil cleansing. Our quick guide to oil and skin type is below:
- Argan Oil: Nourishing, Anti Ageing, Sensitive Skin, Irritation, Scars
- Camellia Oil: Soothing, a Light Oil for Oily/ Combination Skin, Irritated Skin
- Jojoba Oil: Dry, Sensitive Skin - Soothing, Calming - good for acne sufferers

An important part of your skin care routine is a serum to feed your skin before you moisturise. We have a number at Flora & Fauna from La Mav and they are all designed to help with Anti Ageing. They are also designed to work with the fluids and moisturisers and the overnight serums. There are four ranges: a Brightening Range, Hydrating Range, Lift & Firm Range and an Anti Ageing Range.
