I have tried these skincare products from the brand Sk:n and they leave me nothing but impressed. I have tried two of their Vitamin-Rich Cleansers, one for oily skin and one for normal or combination skin. From their Repair and Protect range, I tried their award-winning Sunscreen in SPF50, and from the Anti-Ageing range, their Age-Delaying Cream for Younger Skin.
RRP £11 for 200mlThis creamy cleanser is applied straight onto dry skin, with either a cotton pad or straight with clean fingers (my preferred method), massaged onto the skin, and rinsed off with water. I prefer cold water as it is believed to tighten pores. This gently but efficiently removes makeup (including non-waterproof mascara) and does not irritate my eyes. After drying my face, it leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated, not tight at all as other cleansers might feel. It does not irritate my skin... I'm in love!
RRP £11 for 200ml
This Vitamin Rich Cleanser for oily skin comes in a gel form, compared to that for Normal to Combination skin which ones in a lotion form. My skin is more of the dry-combination type, so using this one for oily skin makes my skin feel a bit dry and tight after washing - nothing a moisturiser can't fix! Those who are acne-prone or with oily skin might benefit from using this.
While you are supposed to avoid the eye area when using this cleanser, I found that it also effectively removes eye makeup *naughty me!*
RRP £29 for 30ml
This luxurious cream is so smooth to apply, and dries within minutes, leaving a super soft velvety feel on the skin. I apply this after cleansing and patting my face dry; this way the moisturiser is easily absorbed and keeps the skin's moisture in. This is a wonderful product for this winter, and does not make my skin break out. A Winner!
Because this product contains Vitamin A, I advise to use this at night when you don't have sun exposure as Vitamin A can make your skin photosensitive. Vitamin A, of which a derivative of is used in anti-acne products like Roaccutane, is an anti-ageing product that regulates cell turnover, however for the purposes of this review, it is too soon and difficult to tell its effects!
RRP £15 for 100ml
While the anti-ageing cream is applied at night, this product should be applied during the day to protect your skin against the sun's UV rays with the impressive SPF50. To be specific, sunscreen should be typically applied about 30minutes prior to sun exposure to give the skin enough time to absorb the product. Especially during sunny days, it is also recommended to reapply sunscreen every 2 hours. I love this product - it is very easy to apply on the skin, the consistency is perfect - not to thick or thin, moisturises enough for the winter and smells heavenly. Love love :)
