QUENCH KIT FOR THIRSTY SKIN £34.00

Just the tag line alone, solutions for stressed skin, screams out me. During the typical cold months my skin was exceptionally oily - odd huh. So I decided to use another kit that I had specifically for oily skin and it heated up on my skin to the point it banished the oil but left my once oily skin, quite dry. So I had to switch my skincare routine.

Skyn ICELAND appeals to the natural, cruelty free, unharmful toxin product enthusiast that I am. So far it's a brand that I can dig - ya feel. The Quench Kit is a one month supply, so it gives just enough time for your skin to adjust, see a difference and know if you are happy enough to continue with the brand.

What I've liked so much about this brand is the cleanser, left my skin feeling smooth, hydrated and moisturised especially the parts of my skin that were dried out. I've nearly finished this cleanser and I'm ready to purchase the 150ml tube. This really helped to get the dry parts of my face back to normal while still keeping the rest of my combination skin at ease. This cleanser has some of my favourite oils included within the ingredients, coconut oil, olive fruit oil which helps to remove make-up. Shea butter, cocoa butter helps to intensively hydrate the skin, jojoba seed extract, smooths the skin and elasticity. Aloe extract, Vitamin E, Soybean oil are also included, all in this one cleanser - powerful combination and it really does show.

During the night, I did rotate the night cream with my Argan / Vitamin E oil mix, the Oxygen Infustion night cream really compliments the cleanser to keep that hydrated feeling. Containing vitamins A, C and E which helps the skin enhance it's tone, texture and elasticity. The skin didn't feel like I had just dried out the work of the cleanser, it was so smooth, no shine just a nice healthy glow. White willow bark soothes irritation and prevent breakouts while you sleep. I noticed that when I had a few spots after using a face mask that once I used this it helped to calm the inflamed skin by the morning - heaven. The redness went down, the spot was still there but wasn't as noticeable due to the fact the redness went down. The texture is a lot like cold cream, very light, glides on and takes to the skin like a duck on water.

 Cream Textures : - Artic Hydrating Balm - Oxygen Infusion Night Cream - Icelandic Relief Eye Pen 


 I continued to use the cleanser, even once the dried out T-Zone was repaired and while using the Artic Hydrating Balm during the day, the texture is more solid than the night cream, easy to blend out and gives my skin a soft feel while protecting it. Believe me when I say, I'm now scared to use anything else as I've got so use to the texture and how it healed the dry areas of my once oily skin and balanced it out. AH-MA-ZING.

I'm really getting use to using eye creams. Dark circles are becoming the enemy of this face along with a few spot blemishes *shakes fist* so this is my morning eye cream ( yes, I do have a different one for the night time - diva mode ) the texture for this makes it better for the morning, it's more solid in texture than my other cream so it's easier if I am going to put make-up on to do so after I've used this eye cream. This does say that a cooling sensation is normal if it does happen once applied, I've felt this only a couple of times. My dark circles are getting lighter due to also getting better rest combined with the eye cream it's looking better in appearance and touch.

I'm a sucker for my Lush Ultrabland cleanser which is still a staple in my skincare doubt I would ever be without it in my bathroom but Skyn Iceland seriously has me sold, I can't wait to use the rest of this range with the White Cloud Spot Corrector , Nordic Skin Peel and Anti-Blemish Gel already on my wishlist.

skyn ICELAND is exclusively available at Marks and Spencer
