New Skincare on Trial
Thursday, 18 Jan 2018
Hi ladies, it is time for another New Skincare on Trial post. If you haven’t checked out the last few, you can do so over here.
I have been trialing these products for about two months now, so I have a good idea of what works for me, and what doesn’t.
Bioderma Hydrabio Masque- I love how soothing and hydrating this is. I have been using this as an overnight mask, since it has a light creamy consistency that absorbs really well. In the morning my skin is plump and supple, and feels extremely soothed and hydrated.
Bioderma Hydrabio Gel-Creme- This light moisturiser works really well under makeup, and leaves my skin feeling hydrated. It isn’t heavy and greasy which makes it perfect for Summer! I am not a huge fan of the packaging though, I never know if I should squeeze or pump, or do both at the same time!
Indeed Labs Snoxin- This anti-aging peptide serum has a silicone like texture, which gives skin a silky feel when applied. Peptides form proteins, which are necessary building blocks of the skin, without which the skin loses firmness which is when you start to see the appearance of wrinkles and textural changes. With consistent use, as well as other anti-aging ingredients, peptides have been shown to revitalise the skin. My skin is definitely looking more supple and plumper, but how much of it can be attributed to this serum, I am not sure.
Human + Kind Wash-Off Facial Cleanser- I am enjoying this cleanser, especially now that it is Summer, as it has such a refreshing tingling feel to it. It does have quite a strong herbal scent, and when my eyes are sensitive, this does add to the irritation. It is gentle on the skin though, and I find it is best removed with a warm cloth.
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes- I don’t usually remove my makeup with face wipes, I prefer a balm or oil cleanser or micellar water, but I had heard great things about these wipes, and so I thought I would give it a go as the FIRST step in my cleansing routine. Unfortunately these were quite disappointing, they were quite dry and scratchy, and didn’t do a great job at removing my makeup at all, mostly because they were uncomfortable to use. I did end up finishing the packet though, because I added some micellar water before using it, to moisten the cloth a bit more.
Just Me Makeup Remover Towel- When I found this Makeup Eraser dupe at Dischem, I knew I had to try it out and see how it compares. It works pretty well at removing makeup, and is gentle and soft on the skin. It is definitely a good affordable dupe for the Makeup Eraser. It is a bit smaller in size, but it is good enough to remove makeup from your face.
*Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1- This 3 in 1 wash/scrub/mask really impressed me! I expected it to be quite scrubby and drying, but it wasn’t at all. I have been using this as a cleanser a few times a week and I love how clean, smooth and refined it leaves my skin. I also love the addition of white clay! If you suffer from clogged skin, this would be a great addition to your routine!
Smith’s Rosebud Salve- At first the scent put me off a bit, but I think I am over that now. I really like how light but moisturising this is. I have been using it daily as a lip balm and I am loving it! It is such a pity it isn’t available in South Africa.
And that is all for my New Skincare on Trial. Thanks for reading ladies!
