Just like we hunt for the best outfit for a party or the perfect shade of MLBB lipstick, skincare that suits and soothes us right can make all the difference. For someone who picks and chooses even the ribbon on a gift with care, a head-to-toe moisturizer that intensely nourishes skin and keeps it supple, smooth is a gift! The Bravocado Ultra Light Nourishing Face & Body Cream is a great combination of natural ingredients and a much-appreciated quick-absorbing formula. This 2-in-1 hydrating lotion is all I need for the face and body! I spread it all over my skin as soon as I am out of the shower and my complexion has transformed like a fairytale character.
My skin type:
Before I give you the lowdown of why this face and body is now my favourite, here’s what my skin is typically like.
- Type: Combination skin
- Concerns: Dry elbows and knees and an oily T-zone on the face by the end of the day
- During summer: Dehydrated skin with visible sun damage
- During winter: Dull, patchy skin
Having dealt with changing skin needs for more than 15 years, only a few products have come close to becoming a go-to solution. From high-end luxury skincare to recommendations from any and everyone, I have tried it all. And this face and body moisturizer hits the target bang on. It’s a part of the beloved Bravocado range made up of key ingredients like avocado, pomegranate and rice water. The Bravocado Intense Brightening Serum has a cult following due to its ability to tackle dark spots and blemishes while giving your skin a boost of hydration. And those with oily and acne-prone skin bow down before the Bravocado Deep Cleansing Clay Mask. It effectively controls excess oil while deep cleansing the pores.
Multiple benefits for skin!
As someone who personally doesn’t enjoy moisturizers in jars, this comes in a handy pump bottle. You need a couple of pumps to cover your face and body. And yes, that includes your buttocks, an area most people miss out on. You can see the gel-like texture in a soothing pastel green with a hint of the natural lavender scent. Once I put it on, I gently massage it for a few seconds and it gets absorbed into the skin pretty fast. I don’t have to wait to get onto the next step of my skincare routine, it’s that efficient! There’s no artificial, migraine-inducing fragrance or frustrating greasy residue at all. All you get is smooth, soft, hydrated skin!
Yes, you may have heard that a body lotion doesn’t usually go on your face! And while that might be true for a few products, this one is curated to work on both. Since the skin on the face is more fragile than the body, this face and body cream is made with the gentlest of ingredients that get the job done.
How I include this face and body cream in my daily skincare routine
AM Routine: I cleanse my face in the shower using the Bravocado Pollution Rescue Cream Face Wash. I follow the 3-second moisturizing rule. So as soon as I am done with my shower, I barely pat down my skin with a towel. Then I take a generous scoop of the face and body cream and immediately apply it all over. I follow it up with an SPF before moving on to makeup.

PM Routine: As soon as I come home after a long day of sun exposure and sitting in the traffic, I begin my nightly routine with a cleanser. Next, I put on my trusted serum and then apply the face and body cream.

What’s so great about this moisturizing formula?
There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the label of a product and seeing all the essentials checked off. This face and body cream has all-natural, 100% vegetarian ingredients. The crown jewels are avocado oil, pomegranate, rice water, apricot kernel oil and lavender oil.
The new topping on your toast is packed with monounsaturated fat, making avocados a fruit that’s full of skin benefits. It also has a ton of vitamin E that is highly nourishing. All this makes it effective in protecting your skin from oxidative damage caused by the sun and other environmental factors.
Did you know that pomegranates not just taste good but are also rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C and minerals and omega fatty acids? Me neither! These tiny red seeds have amazing anti-ageing benefits and are known to boost skin radiance.
And rice water is truly a gift from Korean tradition. I have used it on my hair with great results and having used this face and body cream, I can see why rice water is a key ingredient. It purifies, tones and smoothens skin due to the minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins B and E it contains.
It contains apricot kernel oil, a calming and soothing agent for irritated skin. Vitamin E is always a skin-loving ingredient and this cream has the antioxidant-rich properties of avocado oil to enhance skin texture. I easily use it on my face as it isn’t greasy and doesn’t make my T-zone shiny.
All these ingredients and the fact that this product is cruelty-free and devoid of parabens, toxins or artificial fragrances is a cherry on top!
Top factors that make it my favourite!
My combination skin is loving how it has attained the perfect balance. It hydrates my skin during hot afternoons and creates a barrier to retain moisture. During the cold, chilly nights of winter, it delivers a dose of intense hydration that makes my skin, buttery soft and smooth. It is quick-absorbing which is a big plus point for me who doesn’t have a lot of time to get ready in the mornings. The texture of the moisturizer is gel-like and creamy. It calms my skin with its cooling sensation. This is especially appealing to me as my body temperature is always on the higher side.
What stands out about this face and body cream?
I love a light, non-artificial fragrance in my body lotion and this face and body cream has a relaxing, natural lavender scent that brightens my mood. As it is lightweight and gets absorbed into the skin quickly, it doesn’t leave behind any sticky residue or feeling. Even since I have started using it, I can see a positive difference with my sun spots and pigmentation slowly fading away.
Here’s why you should indulge in it!
This face and body cream is what you need to restore your skin with the lost moisture. Be it a hectic lifestyle, prolonged sun exposure or the ever-changing weather, we all know that our skin needs wholesome nourishment. The Bravocado Ultra Light Nourishing Face and Body Cream is just the thing! It contains the goodness of natural Korean ingredients like avocado, pomegranate, rice water, apricot kernel oil and lavender oil. All this combined with a quick-absorbing formula makes it the real deal.
Just like this face and body cream has found a place for it in my vanity, I’m sure it will be delightful for your skin too!
