Winter is definitely taking a toll on my skin and I cannot obviously use the same products that I would use in summer. I felt the need for something that is extra nourishing, to fill the gap and so tried out the Organic Harvest Activ – Retention Hydrating Moisturizer with Collagen amino protein, from the Sea Buckthorn Range. The use of the Sea Buckthorn in skincare apparently dates back to the era of Gengis Khan and Mythical Greeks, well-known for its rejuvenating effects while healing the dehydrated and damaged skin.

What I like:
What might be a Con for some:
Will I Repurchase? – Yes, if I do not find a pocket friendly alternative.
My Opinion: Although, priced higher than the others, I’m fond of the Organic Harvest Activ range of products (Also read the Masseuscious Damage Control Cleanser review), since they seem to be effective on my skin. The products are highly concentrated with supercharged ingredients that give the maximum visible results without even having to use too much of it. I’ve been using the Hydrating Moisturizer from the Sea Buckthorn range for a month now and I seem to have exhausted only one third of the bottle. I’m sure it will last at least another month and a half. I tried my best to review every possible aspect of this product and will keep updating the same in the next month of its use.
