By Julie

I was fortunate to be selected to try out the Volante Revitalizing Day Lotion ($75 in the shop). In the midst of the selection process, though, my family and I moved from Honolulu, HI to Washington DC. Needless to say the weather in DC is dramatically different than in Hawaii but I thought it would be interesting to try out the Volante Lotion in our new location. 

The Volante line of skincare interested me because it boasts a nice list of helpful ingredients - botanicals and 2% Matrixyl Synthe'6® among others,  but almost more importantly it's missing these harmful ingredients  - parabens, petrolatum, mineral oil, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, gluten.  No animal testing either.  

On their website the Volante Day lotion is listed as suitable for: combination skin, oily skin, sensitive skin and acne-prone skin. The Day lotion is also isted as a solution for: dehydrated skin, acne, fine lines and wrinkles and redness and irritation.  

So, the lotion is presented as an anti-aging solution for problem skin.  I have never really considered my skin to be a problem - it's more normal than dry or oily.  And I've never known my skin to be particularly sensitive. But living in Hawaii as an outdoor sports loving 56-year old Caucasian woman meant I got a LOT of sun. My skin might be dehydrated and it certainly does show fine lines and wrinkles.  

When the lotion arrived I tried it immediately. The texture is very lightweight and  non-greasy. It has a lovely almond scent. Initially the scent seemed strong, especially on my cheekbones, but it dissipated quickly. A slight sheen was visible where I had applied the lotion. I was very interested to see if such a lightweight lotion could be hydrating enough for my skin.  Happily, several hours later I still found my skin to be moist and comfortable. I tried the lotion on the back of my hands and décolletage as well and was pleased with those results too. 

So over the course of the next 30 days I substituted the Volante lotion for my normal day lotion.  I tried the lotion in various ways - stand alone, under make-up, over my normal first step of Time Revolution Treatment Essence, and with the essence and under makeup. I found that for me it was best layered over the treatment essence if I was going to wear make-up. My skin seems to have adapted to the lighter (less emollient than my previous day lotion) texture over the 30 days.  Two pumps of the lotion (as recommended) are easily enough for my skin. This would have been really lovely for daily use in Hawaii where the humidity is consistently high.

I grew to really enjoy this lotion, not necessarily as a complete remedy to my fine lines and wrinkles, but more for the way the lotion encouraged my skin to feel hydrated, balanced and calm. It seems to make my skin feel a little 'bouncy' too. Who knew my skin had been irritated?  I'm afraid, though, that the Volante Day lotion by itself will not be hydrating enough for the winter season in Washington DC so I intend to purchase the Volante Intensive Repairing Serum now that I've finished the 30 day review. I plan to layer the serum over my regular treatment essence and under the Volante Day lotion and see if this is enough. If not, I think I'll try out the Volante Radiant Youth Firming Cream for the cold season and save my remaining lotion (about 1/4 of the bottle) for next summer. 

I'm happy to recommend this lotion, especially should you live in an area with higher humidity.
