In a Few Words
An oil moisturizer that repairs, strengthens, and softens the skin.

“Aloha Ambrosia has a feather light consistency, making her ideal for daytime use. She absorbs like a dream and moisturizes to perfection. This beauty will help to strengthen, soften, and repair the skin while filling in fine lines. Your skin will feel soft and supple, and ready to take on the day… Jasmine oil helps to restore the skin by balancing moisture, reducing dryness, gently fading scarring and minimizing breakouts due its antiseptic and antibacterial properties.” Leahlani Skincare’s Aloha Ambrosia Morning Moisture Elixir comes in a 30 mL glass bottle with a pump and is $52.00.

I bought my Aloha Ambrosia on Leahlani’s website about a year ago and have used the entire bottle. I had a love/hate relationship with this product. I loved this moisturizer as an SOS product – it is so intensely hydrating and soothing on irritated skin. This elixir was the perfect rescue treatment if my skin was dry and irritated from too much retinol, changes in weather, or a sunburn. With that being said, even in those situations, I would never use this in the morning if I planned on leaving the house… which leads me to the hate. This moisturizer was so heavy and greasy. It never fully absorbs into the skin and even hours later your face is still an oil slick – and I am dehydrated so my skin usually drinks up everything! On top of being too oily, it has a heavy floral scent that never really dissipates – though, I might be extra sensitive to the smell because I hate florals. For those reasons, I never used this elixir in the morning and saved it for PM routines only. If this moisturizer did not have the heavy floral scent, I would repurchase this in an instant. Unfortunately, the smell is a deal-breaker for me. I could accept the greasiness because I knew that, no matter what state my skin was in, I could always turn to this moisturizer.

Aloha Ambrosia is extremely hydrating and healing, but it is also very heavily scented and never fully absorbs into the skin.
