AvyaSkincare - Lace and Sparkles

* This post was created in partnership with AVYA Skincare and BrandBacker. As always, all opinions expressed here are 100% my own.

Happy Monday, lovelies! How’s your winter season going? I swore warmer weather was finally coming my way a couple weeks ago but unfortunately, I’m still wearing four layers of clothes and sipping hot cocoa almost every day (don’t judge!).

Now, I know I’ve previously talked about my best winter skincare tips, and because I’m approaching that “third floor” (turning 30, as I like to call it!), I’ve been taking even better care of my skin. Seriously, the other day I saw a recent photo of myself and all I could think was, “Hold the phone...those tiny fine lines were not there last week, I SWEAR!”

I know we’re always our own worst critics, but I can’t be the only one who wants to age as gracefully as possible, right? That’s why when I discovered AVYA Skincare and their promise to make my skin rose-petal soft and the healthiest it’s ever been, I knew I had to give it a try. At first, the marketer in me was charmed by their branding and beautiful white packaging with rose gold trim (just take my money!), but when they sent me samples of their most popular products, I was hooked!


AVYA, which means “first rays of the sun” in Sanskrit, is a luxury skincare line created to indulge all skin tones of the global woman, and was inspired by the generations of women who harnessed the power of ancient ingredients in their daily lives for glowing, resilient, and luminous skin.

AVYA’s anti-aging skincare line was designed with the finest botanicals, including peony, turmeric and neem complex. These ancient antioxidants contain the most essential anti-inflammatory properties to boost radiance and minimize pore size. Hello, gorgeous skin!

Each AVYA product is created with other unique botanicals for treating specific ailments, as well as cutting edge technology to ensure that they work amazingly well on any skin type, no matter what tone or pigmentation.


Let me just start by saying that it’s pretty challenging for me to find a worthwhile skincare product that delivers great results AND smells heavenly. The power duet I tried is AVYA’s Anti-Aging Power Serum and Eye Cream:

  • ANTI-AGING POWER SERUM (WITH VITAMIN C): Formulated with peony, turmeric, neem extracts, and pure encapsulated Vitamin C, this mighty serum protects your beautiful skin while also boosting radiance and restoring even complexion. In other words, it will make your skin look brighter and younger!

As with any other retinoid – one the most powerful agents for skin cell turnover – my sensitive skin did dry out a little bit for the first few days (nothing that a little moisturizer didn’t fix). After that, it was all smooth and glowy!

  • EYE BRIGHT CREAM (WITH CAFFEINE): This splendid eye cream perfectly blends that same magic combination of peony, turmeric and neem extracts, but adds potent topical caffeine and Cassava Matrix Technology to instantly reduce and eliminate fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. Ladies, this eye cream took me from looking the part of Tired, Overwhelmed Entrepreneur to Bright-Eyed Girlboss ready to crush goals and tackle her day!

While I still need to use concealer and foundation when I’m wanting to rock a full-makeup look, my makeup application goes on so much smoother and my fine lines don’t show up after a few hours like they did before. And no more pesky buildup under my eyes! I was using a heavier eye cream before (without much luck) but AVYA’s Eye Bright Cream feels way lighter and is definitely helping reduce my dark circles. #win

Also, if there weren’t already dozens of reasons to love this skincare line, I really love and appreciate that AVYA’s products will last you for a ton of uses compared to typical skincare products! A little bit goes a long way, so I know I’m getting a great bang for my buck with a quality product. I’m really excited to see my results after a couple more weeks of use!

Also, can we just talk about their gorgeous packaging for a minute? I don’t know about you guys, but there’s something about having my vanity full of beautifully-bottled products that just motivates me to stick to my routine even more. Whatever helps, right?

As a Latina, I know my skin’s higher levels of melanin make me more susceptible to pigmentation irregularities such as dark spots and skin discoloration. It makes me really happy to see there’s finally a skincare brand that focuses on the challenges of global skin diversity. AVYA anti-aging skincare products not only treats wrinkles, but also caters to skin with a higher melanin concentration, like mine.

After using AVYA’s Night Serum and Eye Cream twice a day for a little over a week, I can say I’m absolutely in LOVE with the results I can see and feel on my skin. I love the light texture, pleasant fragrance, and how revived and bright my overall skin tone looks. Even my friends have asked if I started taking new vitamins, and one friend even joked that I must be sleeping “too much” because my fine lines have faded away! HA, I wish I could actually sleep more than six hours, but a girl needs to hustle!

Seriously, now that I’ve been spoiled with these wonderful products, I can’t wait to add AVYA’s cleanser and day and night moisturizers to my daily beauty routine. You can get AVYA’s skincare products at and thank me later!
