We had a chance to try a few items over the last few weeks, and they are truly as they claim to be, minimal, easy to use, highly effective products.
Hero Product Caffeine Eye Serum helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and ageing around the eyes whilst also brightening the delicate skin around the eyes. Along with Caffeine, which is great to help improve circulation by refreshing and de-puffing the skin, Green Tea and Pomegranate Extracts which are powerful anti-oxidants that protect and tone the skin. Apply a small amount morning and evening around the eye area with gentle patting motions using your ring finger until it’s absorbed.
The Peppermint Daily Cleanser is great to cool and refresh irritated, inflamed skin, making it ideal for blemish prone skin or after shaving. The cooling Peppermint Leaf Oil also lends it it’s refreshing scent, and anti-bacterial properties and the Coco-Sulfate is a natural alternative to SLS and it creates a soft, creamy lather that cleans while keeping the skin smooth. Great for a daily wash, but not to remove eye makeup, as the peppermint shouldn’t be used around the delicate eye area.
The Super Food Facial Oil is rich in vitamins A, C, E & F, and packed full of antioxidants and essential fatty acids, to help enhance the complexion. Calming and hydrating, it’s brilliant for sensitive skin, with Prickly Pear Seed Oil, to help soothe, moisturise and nourish, Jojoba Seed Oil to improve elasticity and a complex of Berry Derived Oils, such as strawberries, raspberries and cranberries which are rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants. This oil absorbs quickly and leave skin feeling nourished, soothed and comfortable without feeling heavy.
Best-selling Niacinamide Daily Toner is ideal to help calm redness and inflammation whilst minimising the appearance of pores, making a choice product for oily and sensitive skins. Niacinamide, or B3, is an essential vitamin not naturally produced in our bodies, but necessary to help even out skin tone and minimise pores as well as calming, anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing and blemish fighting properties. With Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid, it also helps hydrate and protect the skin.
