Who says you need harsh chemical products to help control breakouts? This purifying, oil-balancing Salvia Facial Lotion is a lighter version of the Salvia Facial Cream and is perfect for keeping skin calm during the summer months.
Salvia Officinalis (Sage) leaf extract and Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) oil are anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial ingredients, giving this lotion its clarifying and purifying properties. Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) water is great for combating breakouts as it is anti-inflammatory as well as a mild astringent, ensuring that your skin is calm and refreshed. Mixed with a blend of organic essential oils, this lotion nourishes skin and balances oil production.

Morning – use after cleansing and toning to hydrate and soothe the skin. Message gently into the skin, to stimulate circulation. For times when additional moisture is needed you can mix Salvia Lotion with a pea-sized drop of Salvia Cream.
Evening – usually only the Cleansing Milk is needed at night. Martina Gebhardt cleansers have rehydrating properties and should offer sufficient protection for the skin during the night. Skin appreciates the rhythm of being able to breath at night, and allowed to do so, it can return to its natural healthy balance.
I do not like this lotion and wish I could return.
I love this lotion so much, and have been using it for years now for my acne prone/dry skin. It's a lot lighter than the cream version, so I used it in the morning, under my foundation - and the cream at night, as it's a lot heavier. It's really the only thing my skin responds to! Keeps blemishes and redness calm and hydrates beautifully. This is a great brand for those with sensitive/acne prone skin, and who are sick of harsh drug store products.
I have been using this lotion for nearly 15 years! I am yet to come across another that works as well as this one. The consistency is light but it works all day long without having to reapply, even on very hot summer days. Due to its botanical ingredients, this lotion is naturally scented, but as scented lotions go, it's rather mild.
I was recommended this moisturizer by P & S through email as unfortunately I do not live near a location. I was sent a sample to try and immediately fell in love. My oily breakout prone skin is no longer an oil slick a few hours after my skin care routine. This along with my other P&S products, my skin is on it's way to being the best it's ever been.
