LilyAna Naturals: Non Toxic Skincare On A Budget

An honest LilyAna Naturals review: This powerhouse natural skincare company has two skincare products that I’ve come to LOVE: their eye cream and Super C serum. Both are cruelty-free, free of the top harmful chemicals and they are both an incredible deal for what they deliver!


Two questions that are always on my mind when trying a skincare product are, first, is it safe? And second, will it work? With LilyAna Naturals, I’ve found that the answer is yes to both! Originally launched in Mississippi, LilyAna Naturals is a USA-made, family business that is known for its quality products that deliver real results for all skin types.


Check out my honest review of their Super C Serum and Eye Cream!

First Impressions: Unboxing LilyAna Naturals Super C Serum and LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream


What immediately caught my eye was the vintage style of the packaging. I just love the simple yet nostalgic design! I also appreciate the opaque packaging of the serum, helping to prevent any degradation from light exposure.


The second thing I noticed was the texture: the Super C Serum has a lightweight yet creamy texture, and the Eye Cream also has a light, yet substantial, feel. The Eye Cream smells just faintly of rose, and the Super C serum, thankfully, lacks any of that strange orange juice scent of Vitamin C serums of old!


How Do They Compare With Other LilyAna Eye Creams and Serums?


LilyAna has two other eye creams: a Retinol and a Vitamin C. Their Naturals Eye Cream that I tried is formulated with rosehips and hibiscus, while of course the Retinal version is formulated with gentle-exfoliating retinol, and the Vitamin C formula has a different botanical blend of ingredients as well as the added Vitamin C. Unlike those, the one I tried has aloe vera


The serums are similarly available in a Retinol formulation as well as an original Vitamin C version.


How Long Does LilyAna Naturals Super C Serum and LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Last?


Although the packaging says that the eye cream should last two months, I’ve used it longer than that and I can still tell by its weight that I’ve got at least another month or so left. And (check this out) that’s after also using it on my laugh lines AND my decollete! But when you’ve got an eye cream that weighs in at 1.7 ounces, as opposed to the usual .5 ounces of most eye creams, it’s no surprise it’ll outlast most of them, even when used on more spots than just around the eyes.


Speaking of size, given that the Super C serum, at 1 ounce, is smaller than the eye cream, and given how much more I use each day (though a little still goes a long way!), it looks like the bottle will last approximately 3 months — give or take. It’ll depend on whether you use it once or twice daily.


Does LilyAna Naturals Super C Serum and LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Work?


The Super C Serum is said to help with:


  • Reduce the look of wrinkles

  • Renew skin cells, preventing premature aging

  • Plumps and brightens the look of skin

  • Neutralizes free radicals

  • Lessen inflammation and soothe skin


Its key ingredients are 10% Vitamin C, blended with three types of “C”, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, Peptides, and Seaweed Complex.


The Eye Cream has slightly different benefits, more targeted to the eye area:


  • Hydrates and moisturizes

  • Reduces dark circles and puffiness

  • Minimizes crows feet, fine lines, and wrinkles


Its targeted ingredients include Aloe Vera, Rosehip Seed Oil, Hibiscus, and Vitamins C&E.


My eye area is sensitive—before trying this, the last product I’d tried had given me a reaction, so I was somewhat gun-shy at first, not wanting the same thing to happen again. But after two months, I’ve found that the formulation is super gentle on my eye area, and I’ve loved the texture and feel so much, I started using it on my laugh lines and my decollete.


My laugh lines (not that I don’t love how they got there in the first place, laughter is the BEST medicine!) but they are less noticeable than before. And I just adore the texture of this cream—when you first pump it out, its emollience tricks you into thinking it’ll be hard to apply, but it soaks in beautifully!


By now you’re probably wondering...
