I was absolutely thrilled to receive some products from Skincity’s highly anticipated skincare range. I put them through their paces and added them into my routine. Although I haven’t had chance to see the long term effects, I wanted to share my initial thoughts about the range.
Who are they?
“SKINCITY skincare is a line of professional topical products that has been developed and formulated by our most experienced skin therapists, together with Sweden’s best skincare chemists“
“Our goal is to make advanced skincare accessible for everyone, so we have kept the packaging of all our products user-friendly and clear, with easy-to-understand directions and ingredients lists, making it easier than ever to find the right product and routine for your skin“
“Rich balm transforms into an oil on the skin then a light milk when mixed with water“
Contains: Shea Butter, Mango Seed Oil and Squalene. Gentle cleansing agents remove make-up, excess oils and impurities from the skin, all without disrupting the delicate lipid barrier.
Suitable for all skin types, especially dry and sensitive skins
I’ve been using this for a first cleanse in the evenings. The texture is so thick, dense & smooth. When I applied this I worried it would leave my skin greasy & clogged as the texture felt so thick. There was no real scent I was aware of, which is great for the fragrance haters. I was so pleasantly surprised when I added water, the thick gel texture emulsified instantly & beautifully. It melted away my make up so easily. I removed with a flannel and my skin felt like a dream. So soft, clean, smooth, but not tight, perfect to continue the rest of my routine!
Soft Foaming Cleaner
“Quickly remove make-up and impurities from the skin with the Soft Foaming Cleanser from SKINCITY skincare“.
Contains: Coconut Extract, Mango Kernel Oil, Green Caviar – which is naturally rich in minerals and Vitamins C and E
Suitable for all skin types
The ‘foaming’ in the title made me a little nervous when trying this, as I always associate foaming with stripping, however I’d say it more of a creamy lather than a foam. The texture is lovely, velvety and nourishing, it lathers up beautifully. After using my skin felt soft, smooth and content, not tight or stripped. The perfect cleanser for a morning or evening second cleanse.
“Works to improve skin health with every application while enhancing the results of any product applied after it“
Contains: 10% Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol and Glycerin, Allantoin and Oat Kernal Oil, Liquorice Root Extract, Vitamin C and Resveratrol.
Suitable for all skin types
The serum is packed with incredible ingredients! It’s thin in texture and one pump is enough for my whole face. It feels light, absorbs relatively quickly and leaves my skin ready for the next stage in my routine. I slotted this into my morning routine after cleansing & toning. It works well under make up with no piling or greasiness. I have noticed a change in my skin since using it, leaving it brighter, my skin tone is starting to even out and break outs seem reduced.
24h Light emulsion
“Provides oily and combination skin types with lightweight hydration“
Contains: Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramides, Squalane, Gluconolactone, Green Tea, Skullcap Herb and Asian Knotweed
Suitable for oily and combination skin types
The light 24hr emulsion is a slightly thinner texture than the Rich emulsion, it provides a great boost of moisture without being too heavy, perfect for an oilier skin or summer weather.
Both are fab moisturisers, they don’t have a noticeable fragrance and absorb beautifully! They sit so well under make up, no piling or makeup slide.
24h Rich Emulsion
“The 24H Rich Emulsion from SKINCITY skincare is the ideal addition to any dry skin-focused routine“.
Contains: Ceramides, Squalane, Niacinamide, Green Tea, Skullcap Herb and Asian Knotweed and a mild concentration of Vitamin
Suitable for dry and normal skin types
I thought the 24hr Rich Emulsion might be too much for my oily/combo skin, but this colder weather has been calling for more moisture. The texture is thicker and more luxurious, but not a greasy or suffocating texture. The cream absorbs so well with out leaving a sticky or greasy film on my skin. This is a dream! I used every last drop and I will be repurchasing, it has really helped my dehydration!
