gentleness

gentle

what i love about it: it provides full coverage and effectively moisturizes my skin; it does not feel oily- to the contrary, it glides on smoothly and feels light and silky; it does not irritate my skin; my combination skin does not become a mid-day oil well like it used to with other brands of moisturizes; it has a nice, natural scent (verrrrrry subtle- so this would work for people who do not like scented skincare products)

smells wonderful and hydrates my skin, the perfect moisturizer for my skin, i also love the botanical kinetics toner and face wash, i use the botanical kinetics gel cleanser in the summer and creme cleanser in the winter

acne

good for acne

this is the best of both worlds - moisturizes extremely well and doesn't exacerbate my acne

- Aveda User

i have very sensitive skin, and usually my skin breaks outs very easily with almost every product i try (and i have tried a ton) this lotion has been working great, calms my skin down, no breakouts, and my skin feels really good

i have combination skin and i still use this whenever hydration is needed or if my skin appears dull as it helps with giving the skin a youthful glow

- Aveda User

this lotion is sooo perfect for daytime use, and makes the skin glow radiantly

- Nordstrom User

redness

redness relief

the difference is amazing - my shine is minimized, the pores are soft and calm, and my overall irritation has been reduced

- Aveda User

this is a firm favourite, evens out skin tone, reduces redness and irritation caused by other creams, would never be without this one

I have bought this again & again

In reading some reviews, it appears that some folks aren't using the product in the best way to achieve good results. This product is meant to be used as the toning step in your cleaning regimen. It is to be applied with a cotton pad and gently pressed into the skin to see the best results (and eliminate accidental waste). It also works great as a hydrator before applying your makeup primer (since some primers have a drying effect). This product is great to balance moisture of the skin. I have combination skin and I still use this whenever hydration is needed or if my skin appears dull as it helps with giving the skin a youthful glow. I especially use this toner at night when as my goal is to repair my aging skin. I highly recommend this product and wish they would make it in a larger size. Less

My skin sadly reacted very badly to this lotion

The lotion smells divine and applies nicely; it's lightweight and not sticky. However...it is not at all suitable for me. Something in it disagreed with my face. I've broken out terribly and will have to return it. I have normal/dry skin that is slightly sensitive but not usually overly so. I use Aveda hair and body products without any issues. This was my first time purchasing from the botanical kinetics line and I am disappointed it didn't work for me.

Fantastic product

I've just written a review for the gel cleanser which goes with this product and I felt I had to review the hydrating lotion as well. I have been using a free sample I received for a few days and the difference in my skin is so noticeable in such a short time. I have problem combination skin which is very dry in areas and oily with acne in other areas. This moisturizer works on both area's perfectly and its very light, therefore easily absorbed. My skin finally feels more balanced and the acne is clearing up. The colour tone is also improving and is less red than normal. You don't need to use much so I think the product will last well. I'll definitely be buying this when the sample runs out.

So far so good!

I bought this lotion after reading all the great reviews and I wanted to try it on the small little red bumps I have behind my arms. I've only been using the product for a few weeks but I can tell a difference in the appearance of my skin (arms and face). My face feels so soft and refreshed everytime I use it. It hasnt caused any break outs and doesnt over dry the skin or cause it to look/feel oily, its just perfect. I would definetly recommend this item to any one with combo skin. I have dry skin in the winter, oily skin in the summer and acne bursts once in a while.Must try! You wont regret it.

Botanical Kinetics Hydrating Lotion

I started using this product 6 years ago and I sticked with it ever since. I have sensitive skin and my skin breaks out once in a while. Botanical Kinetics Hydrating Lotion calms down my skin. It moisturizes but not too heavy. It works perfectly in summer and daytime. At nighttime, I prefer Aveda EnbrightenmentTM Brightening Correcting Creme. I love Aveda.

I need help finding a good lotion. I have combo skin. So after I wash my face it gets dry instead of oily. So I would have dry patches. What lotion works best with combo skin.

I have combination skin and have been using this for years! You dont need much so it lasts awhile. Usually it’s actually $30.
