Got dry, tired and tight skin after your morning shower? Then UXB are here to help with it’s brand new skincare range which we were kindly sent to review. See our results below.
UXB has created four luxurious skincare shower creams each with natural ingredients aimed to target specific areas of your skin which need it the most. The range includes creams for Dry Skin, Oily Skin, Polluted Skin and Mature Skin, below we put each one to the test. Starting with Juniper and Acai berry (best for sun damaged and polluted skin) Mandy who just came back from a weekend in Edinburgh said:
“I was looking forward to trying the shower cream as I have just came back from a weekend away and my skin needed a little TLC. Using some of natures most powerful antioxidants I could instantly smell the fresh scent of Juniper which wasn’t over-powering, applying as per the instructions I left the cream on for a few seconds and washed off the excess. Unlike other oil based products, this didn’t leave my skin oily but feeling smooth, soft and nourished and as a bonus it even helped cool my sunburn. Overall I can safely say I’ll be dispensing into a small bottle to take on future holidays.
Next Katy from our team tried the Frankincense and Argan Oil which has been designed specifically for dry skin. Katy said: “I do get dry skin quite often and find that after a shower my skin is a bit tight and dry so I’m always on the look-out for products which will help lock in the moisture which is why I was eager to try UXB dry skin shower cream especially as it used Argan, Avocado and Tamanu oils which are designed to help sooth dry skin. Using a small amount (as you don’t need too much) of the cream I massaged throughout my entire body, the Frankincense gave a very peppery smell which I liked and after my shower no more tightness or flaky skin, the argan oil in particular made my skin feel so soft and hydrated. For now this will be my go-to shower cream when my skin feels dry.”
Holly was next to try out the third bottle the Brown Rice Milk and Honey shower cream made for those who struggle with Oily Skin, she said: My skin can sometimes go into oil overdrive and with so much mixed information on oil to beat oil I’m usually weary about trying new products however I was excited to give this ago especially as it smells so gorgeous. I did notice my skin was more nourished and balanced after just a few uses plus I really did smell good!
Last in the range is the Rosehip and Comfrey shower cream which is for mature skin. Elaine from our team who is in her 60’s (Shh!) was willing and able to give this a go as she feels her skin can be a little dull, she said: “Ylang Ylang and Lavender are two of my favourite scents and paired with the Rosehip I couldn’t wait to try especially as I wanted my skin a little more plump. The results were great, I was very impressed with how my skin looked brighter and how much moisture was locked in. I’m still waiting for a wrinkle-free-wonder but until that comes around I’ll be using this again and again.
UXB Skincare range is available to buy online for £17.50 each or you can get all four for £70.
