I have recently attended a Watsons event to preview two latest Avalon Organics range of products – Avalon Organics Essential Lift Skincare Collection and Avalon Organics Elixir Hair Care Range.
Frankly, I’m not very well-versed with organic products and I hardly use them either. In the recent years, organic products have been very popular among conscious users. The organic products are usually FREE from harsh synthetic ingredients, chemicals and artificial fragrances. Organic products use plants and herbs that are grew organically; and they are claimed to be safe to use even on sensitive skin too.
So far, I have only tested organic shampoos but I’ve yet to test any organic skincare products. Due to my delicate and sensitive skin, I’m actually quite conscious with products that contain natural skincare ingredients such as citric acid, lemon, lavender and some natural fragrance oils. But if you are a fan of organic and doesn’t like anything synthetic or chemicals, then organic products may be ideal for you.

Avalon Organics Essential Lift Skincare Collection
Avalon Organics, one of the exclusive brand by Watsons, has recently launched their newest organic anti-aging skincare range - Essential Lift Skincare Collection.
This range is formulated with over 70 oceanic minerals that are claimed to provide natural lift with deep hydration.
This exclusive complex draws out moisture from deep within the skin to plump and firm dehydrated surface layer skin cells. As the products are free from parabens, artificial colors or fragrances hence they are believed to be pure, safe and effective.
The range contains these ingredients that are claimed to provide certain benefits : Organic Ginseng Root Extract and Irish Moss to tone and tighten skin; Organic Aloe Vera Juice and Lemon Peel Oil to refresh and clarify skin; Organic Jojoba Seed Oil and Organic Oat Kernel Extract to soften and tighten skin; and Organic Essential Oils to promote circulation and revitalize skin.
The range is now available at selected Watsons stores with prices ranging from S$15.90 to S$31.90.
Avalon Organics Essential Lift Smoothing Cleanser – S$15.90 / 177ml
Product Claim : A luxurious moisturizing creme cleanser that detoxifies skin by drawing out impurities and gently exfoliating dead skin cells. Nutrient-dense ocean minerals help nourish skin to strengthen its underlying support for a smoother and brighter appearance.
Verdict : Do not expect this cleanser to lift the skin as sagging skin is not about collagen loss but more of a loss of elastin which is impossible to repair with this cleanser. This cleanser contains a handful of ingredients such as lemon, lavender, linalool and citric acid that may be irritating to some people.
This creamy light greyish green cleanser effectively removes light makeup and dirt without stripping off my natural moisture and my skin doesn’t feel tight at all.
Avalon Organics Essential Lift Fortifying Toner – S$15.90 / 177ml
Product Claim : Formulated with essential minerals and organic essential oil, this alcohol-free moisturizing toner helps to stimulate micro-circulation for a lifted and more contoured effect.
Verdict : Although this toner is free of alcohol, paraben, harsh preservatives, synthetic colors or fragrances but it does contain a couple of ingredients such as cedar bark, lemon, balsam and lavender that may be irritating for some people.

Product Claim : Lift, tone and hydrate your face, neck and d©colletage with this ultra-light, mineral-enriched SPF 15 day creme. This mineral sunscreen help protect skin from visible signs of premature aging, including loss of resiliency and firmness.
Verdict : This daytime moisturizer with SPF 15 provides broad-spectrum protection with Zinc Oxide at 8.5%. It contains a few ingredients such as lemon, rosemary, lavender and linalool that may cause irritation to some people.
