Natural Moisturizer | Olivella Skin Moisturizing Oil Review

While on a trip to Italy, I discover Olivella natural moisturizer, along with many other fabulous things. I realize that life is lived differently here than back home. Family and friends are more important than work. Meals are meant to be enjoyed and not rushed. Shops and businesses close for a couple of hours for a siesta. Life seems good. Relaxed. Enjoyed.

I also notice how naturally beautiful the women are, both inside and out. Sophisticated and confident. Their faces are glowing bright with smiles. They don’t wear a lot of makeup, yet their skin is flawless. It has to be the Mediterranean air, I think to myself, but as I venture through specialty shops and spas, I find something otherwise. Is this their secret? Could this little glass bottle filled with a golden liquid be their fountain of youth?

I ask the woman in the shop what is in the bottle. She simply states, “Olivella”. I must have a puzzled look upon my face for her to try to explain more. “Olive oil”, she says. Olive oil? Why on earth would they put olive oil in such a small bottle? Is it for spritzing on salads? As my mind tries to comprehend what the woman has just told me, she grabs my hand and says, “for your skin.” As she puts a couple of drops onto the back of my hand and rubs it in, she says, “It’s nice, yes?” I can smell a citrus scent as the oil quickly penetrates into my skin. It leaves a sheen that gives my skin a subtle glow. I reply, “Oh yes, it’s lovely.” As she hands me the box to read more, this is what I find out about Olivella natural moisturizer.

Olivella Natural Moisturizer

natural moisturizerOlivella is an all natural moisturizer that is made in Italy. The product I have found is called Olivella Skin Moisturizing Oil. It is an anti-aging elixir made from 100% premium Italian Virgin Olive Oil. I know what you are thinking because I thought the same thing. Why in the world would I put oil on my face? Won’t it clog pores? Leave my face looking and feeling greasy? In reading more on the box, I also found that the product is pure and natural, gentle, hypoallergenic, does not contain parabens, colorants, or sodium laurel sulfates, and is scented with natural floral and citrus essential oils from the Mediterranean. I decide to purchase the Olivella natural moisturizer and try it for myself.

Let me first start off by saying that even though it is called a moisturizer, this is a treatment oil that is best when used at night while your skin is regenerating. Having very sensitive skin, I always test a new product on a small area on my forehead near my hairline to see if I have any reactions before slathering it over my entire face. So, before I head to bed, I do my test patch. When I wake the next morning, I quickly check the area I applied the oil and find no irritations or breakouts. I’m excited to try tonight!

The Test

After my nighttime cleansing routine, I pump a few drops of the oil onto my fingertips and rub my fingertips together so the oil is on both hands. I gently apply it to my face avoiding my eye area. I have enough left on my hands to apply to my neck and décolletage area. The oil quickly absorbs into my skin and smells wonderfully delicious. It reminds me of the secret serums that an esthetician applies from her “back bar” when I get a facial – you know, the good stuff that isn’t available for consumers to purchase. I rub any leftover oil into the back of my hands. The oil isn’t greasy like you would think. It’s very light and absorbs quickly into your skin versus sitting on top of it. Now, it’s off to bed so Olivella Skin Moisturizing Oil can nourish and replenish my skin while I sleep!

When I wake, I find that the moisturizing oil has left my skin with a subtle glow. My skin looks moisturized and feels very soft. The little lines I often see seem smoothed out, plumped up, and not as noticeable. I also notice that the dry patches I sometimes get due to weather conditions are gone. My skin looks and feels deeply hydrated and healthy. I think I have found something really special!

It’s All Good

Olivella Skin Moisturizing Oil is a natural moisturizer rich in nutrients, antioxidants, vitamin A, and vitamin E that will promote healthy skin and help protect it from damaging free radicals. It also contains squalane, an excellent emollient that is compatible with skin and contains high levels of collagen, skins natural age-defender.

Here is a list of the natural moisturizer ingredients:

Olea Europaea/Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Squalane, Citrus Dulcis/Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Retinyl Palmitate Tocopheryl Acetate, Lavandula Angustifolia/Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Ylang Ylang/Cananga Odorata Flower Oil.


I have continued to use Olivella’s natural moisturizer on a consistent basis as part of my skincare regime. It’s great in the summer when your skin may get a little pink from the sun and needs a little extra care to help soothe and heal. It’s wonderful in the winter when your skin is dry from the cold air and needs serious hydration.

If you are looking for an all natural moisturizer to give your skin a serious boost of moisture that is filled with anti-aging nutrients and collagen boosting ingredients, try Olivella Skin Moisturizing Oil. Not only women, but men too, should treat their skin with the anti-aging benefits it deserves. After all, we may not have the luxury of living in Italy, but we have the luxury of looking like we do.
