Your skin is in for a hydrated treat this festive season as skinSense launches its 5 Steps to Ultimate Hydrating gift set and here we share our tested results!
Searching for beautifully hydrated skin in 5 easy steps? look no further than skinSense’s 5 Steps to Ultimate Hydration gift set by Abi Cleeve. Here Elaine shares her thoughts on the collection.
I always know when Autumnal days are beginning, my skin becomes a little more dryer and tight, so I’m always on the lookout for products that will help these areas but not take too much faffing to use, so when skinSense arrived in the office, I was intrigued and excited to get testing.
Firstly, I’ll list everything which you receive inside the box:
Hydranet Day Cream 50ml
Hydranet Night Cream 50ml
Intense Concentrate 30ml
Energising Face Mask 25ml
Powerful Eye Concentrate 15ml
I’m pleased that you get a full routine for both morning and night plus the added additions of the face mask and eye cream for extra hydration for your face. The design of the packaging is fun and maximises the hydration side with its water blue pattern.
On opening the packaging, each of the products is securely placed and don’t move around, perfect if you want to pop the whole box in a weekend bag for those Christmas market weekend away.
The bottles are long rectangular in design and sort of feel like you’re squirting on some luxury perfume. Using the day cream to start, it had a nice floral smell, a little stronger than I’m used too however I’m sure a little will go a long way.
The cream itself felt extremely lightweight and left my face feeling smooth and soft. This lasted throughout the day and I didn’t feel as though my face looked or felt greasy and I was impressed that as I’m not a big fan of highly powering scents, this sunk into my skin so much I really couldn’t smell any of the product – perfect!
The night cream has the same elongated design, smell and texture, once applied again, I was still impressed with the lightness of the cream. The next morning my skin looked more rejuvenated and still felt smooth. I’ve now used the products each day for a full week and the results are certainly there, my skin is brighter, far more hydrated and it actually looks more healthy.
After trying all the products, I have to say I love the face mask! it goes on so easily and the results are excellent, my face feels and looks fresher and brighter and as it only takes 10 minutes, it’s the perfect pre-party prepper, however, taking the top spot was the Intense Concentrate which I personally thought was superb and soaked into my face like silk.
skinSense 5 steps to Ultimate Hydration set will cost £48 which when you think you are receiving £118.50 worth of skincare products is damn good! plus although you can slather it on, I found a little did go a long way.
Overall, I can safely say this is on my gifting list for my Sister-in-law this year as I know she’ll love it as much as I do.”
