If you fancy adding some luxury items to your skincare collection then you have come to the right place. And if not I suggest you hang around regardless and admire the beauty of the aesthetically pleasing products in today’s post. There has been a lot of Sunday Riley love on here recently which hasn’t faltered with my latest discovery Good Genes*. This multi-tasking treatment serum was created to exfoliate, brighten and plump the skin. Key ingredients are Lactic Acid which exfoliates and firms the skin whilst licorice, squaline and yeast extract work in synergy to reduce inflammation, brighten and repair the skin whilst strengthening the natural barrier function. As is the case with Sunday Riley I found this product stronger than I expected which isn’t a bad thing. It noticeably brightened and smoothed my skin after the first use but I had to stop using it daily as my skin became a little sensitive. At the moment I’m using it a few times a week as a serum which works perfectly. At 130€ this isn’t cheap but Sunday Riley products are a pleasure to use and they look amazing in the bathroom. So, if you can afford it then I say give it a try and see for yourself. If this is out of your price range then Paula’s Choice offer similar corrective serums that don’t look as great but get the job done regardless.
Next up is KOSHO Creamy Cleansing* which is an all-natural foaming face wash containing organic Matcha tea. This is another range that looks great in the bathroom yet it was the use of Matcha that caught my attention as this contains large amounts of antioxidants which are great for our skin. I like my cleansers to be as mild as possible, despite this being a foaming cleanser it remained very gentle, leaving my skin soft, bright and slightly hydrated. I expected the fragrance to remind me somehow of tea which it doesn’t so I’m interested to know how the other products in the range smell. This comes in a very nice green box and there’s no doubt this is a luxury range. Based on my experience with the cleanser I’m intrigued to try some other products in the range as I have a feeling they could be very nice.
