off, let me just address the elephant in the room, i am not against ageing – with regards to the post title, it is
just what the collection has been called. We are all going to age but lets do
it as beautifully (and in my case un-gracefully) as possible-Hahaha!
to the incredible success of the skinSense
launch last Summer, the brand have been able to bring an outstandingly great value
collection to QVCUK in the form of a Todays Special Value (TSV). This 5 Piece Anti-Ageing Collection is available for
one day only or whilst stocks last on the 5th March 2018. Included in this five
piece collection are the following :-
Active Day Cream 50ml
Suitable for all skin types including sensitive, this highly active, yet
gentle day cream, certainly does hydrate the skin from the first moment of
application. It has a lovely lightweight gel-lotion texture that melts into the
skin quickly without leaving it tacky. Containing Liquorice Root Extract it can
help reduce the appearance of pigmentation. Using Lamellar technology (which is
composed of fine, even layers that form an even bond with the skin, protecting
the ingredients whilst supporting the penetration and action of the active
ingredients into the skin), the skin is protected from the elements. Recently
my mum was in hospital incredibly unwell. The hospital had no windows and the
room was incredibly warm and ‘dry’. Her skin was very stressed and dry due to
all the medication being pumped into her veins and her usual moisturiser was
not doing anything. I grabbed this from my dressing table to take in and just
give her skin some comfort and from first application her skin was hydrated and
healthier looking. Look, I know this is not a miracle cure for illness, but she
has been using it on her sensitive skin ever since and absolutely loving it.
For me, my only bug bear is that it doesn’t work well with some primers without
rolling off, however, it does make a nice base for make up to sit on top of
without using a primer.
Eye Cream 15ml
light reflecting particles, this cooling eye cream disappears into the eye area
when gently tapped in. It doesn’t leave any horrible film over the eye area and
i found my eye contour felt deeply hydrated and less creepy looking which was
for dark circles i think i will forever be blessed with these so although they
always look brighter upon application, they have not disappeared.
Lip Cream 15ml –
I absolutely adore this product to help plump my lips slightly
just before I apply my lip liner and lipstick. Using that all important
Lamellar technology, this is a once a day application that adds hydration and
moisture to the lips and surrounding area. One little pump is more than enough
to smooth in and around the lip line and lip area. Some people feel a slight
tingle, I personally do not, but the lips gently plump up, allowing you to
create that look of definition which I love. Leaves the lips feeling smooth,
supple and hydrated all day long.
Leave On Mask 100ml
This very much reminds me of the Ultrasun Overnight Summer Recovery Mask in
texture and results. It is a non setting gel/serum type consistency that easily
smooth’s over the skin after cleansing and instead of your night cream. This is
a very luxurious treatment to use a couple of times a week when your skin has
been through the mill due to stress, travel or sunshine or extremely cold
temperatures. It brings back a youthful glow and bounce to the skin and acts
like a hydrating drink of water. This is my dream mask. As someone
with dehydrated skin, i apply this three nights a week to really
give my skin a full on treatment. Use once or twice a week (or as needed ) to give
your skin an added boost and help aid with any hyper-pigmentation you may have.
A must have skincare SOS product.
This is actually another favourite product from the range. Containing
Linefill ( as all the products do ) this plumps the facial contours and deeply
hydrates the skin. I need a night cream that will repair my skin whilst i
sleep, deeply hydrate it and work hard so i that i don’t have to. This
does not disappoint. As someone with dehydrated skin, after using this i wake
each morning with hydrated looking and feeling skin, that almost feels as if it
wouldn’t need a day cream. My skin looks well rested and plump. I really
recommend this night cream, it feels so light it could be a day cream,
Thoughts on this collection – This really is a nice collection for someone
stepping into skincare with a more mature skin, that is not sure where to turn.
It also works well on a more ‘Skincare Hardened’ skin that needs to add that
something extra such as the lip plumper or the overnight leave on mask. Either
way I think the value for money is outstanding for a brand that has received
some amazing reviews. This collection is exclusive to QVCUK as a Todays Special
Value on 5th March 2018 and you can purchase HERE as soon as it becomes available. For more
products and information on skinSense, please read my other posts HERE and HERE. The collection will show SOLD OUT until the TSV Day.
