New Skincare on Trial

The focus of this month’s New Skincare on Trial is pigmentation, with some products being hits, but unfortunately some being misses.

New Skincare on Trial Pigmentation

First up we have the *Black Pearl Face Mousse Cleanser which is enriched with Tahitian Black Pearl, seawood, as well as calming plant extracts. It has a very familiar sweet scent that I love, but I can’t quite place. It cleanses well without being too drying or harsh, and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight, as most foaming cleansers do. The packaging is also perfect for use in the shower.

Next up I have two products from the L’Oreal Revitalift Range which is aimed at targeting dark spots, as well as clarifying and renewing the skin. The Night Peeling Lotion is an acid toner that you wipe over the face at night after cleansing. It is meant to exfoliate and renew the skin, and I think it did a pretty good job. My skin looks clearer and more even, and even though I expected a tingle from this and didn’t get it, I still think it did a great job, and is gentle enough to use every day. It has a gloopy gel texture, and it can leave the skin feeling slightly sticky, but it spreads easily and dries quickly. The Global Care Day Cream with spf is a nice everyday cream. It feels soft and silky on the skin, but doesn’t clog my pores. I do think that an spf of 25 is not nearly enough, especially if you are trying to reduce pigmentation, so it is important to wear additional sun protection. It also wears well over serums and under makeup, which is great!

When it comes to pigmentation, or any skin concern for that matter, a serum is where the magic happens. Serums are packed with active ingredients, and are applied after cleansing and toning, before moisturising to effectively target your concerns. I have been relying on two serums, the Lamelle Brighter Concentrate and The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA. Both contain Arbutin, although Lamelle contains a more potent version, and the Lamelle formula also includes pigment inhibiting ingredients. However, The Ordinary is a quarter of the price of Lamelle, and lists the percentage of Arbutin. The Ordinary does feel a bit tacky once applied, but dries down quickly, and the Lamelle feels much silkier and luxurious on the skin.

Lastly, and the one that was a miss for me is the Island Tribe Anti-Ageing Face Cream. Unfortunately this was too rich for me, and not something I will continue to use on my face. I am trying out a new sun cream at the moment, and so far I think it is a winner! Sun protection is the best way to prevent pigmentation, as well as to maintain it. Also, when using active ingredients the skin can become more sensitive to the sun. If you are treating your pigmentation without using sufficient sun protection you are wasting your time and money.
