Skyn Iceland is a brand I really haven’t tried much of – I do use their eye cream almost daily and love it, but that is all I’ve tried! For my birthday, I was so kindly given a gift set of some of their products! I was so excited to use the kit, and I already have been loving some in particular.
This is the Detox Kit For Stressed Skin. It is a targeted daily regimen to counteract the effects of stress on skin. The idea is that when your skin is suffering, stop all other skincare and just go back to these 4 core products. Then after 5 days, start to reintroduce other products back into your routine. I love the idea of this! It is like a detox cleanse for your skin, such a brilliant idea.
Glacial Face Wash – This is a lovely back-to-basics face wash! It cleanses your skin, leaving it feel so, so clean. I find that at the moment, it isn’t quite moisturising enough for my skin, but if you are looking for a simple but super effective face wash, this is a great one.
Arctic Face Mist – This is one of my favourites! I love face mists for my skin and this is a perfect one. It feels almost like medicated skincare because it doesn’t have a perfumed fragrance like many other face mists, so it feels like it is really treating your skin. I love using this to re-hydrate, especially after I used the face wash.
The Antidote Daily Cooling Lotion – Like the face wash, this is the perfect option for skin that is feeling stressed, or overloaded with other products. It is moisturising (not quite enough for the current dry state my skin is in!) but wouldn’t make your skin feel clogged or too oily. It sinks in quickly and works well under makeup too.
The Oxygen Infusion Night Cream – Another favourite from the set! This is the night cream, which has a warming sensation which I love. It isn’t too heavy or greasy, it just applies really smoothly onto my skin and leaves it feeling soft and detoxed when I wake up!
So my thoughts overall – I just love the idea of this kit so much! I feel like this would be ideal after a week of wearing heavy makeup, or if you wanted to just give your skin a back-to-basics detox. The face mist and the night cream are my favourites, but they are all really high quality products. I can’t wait to try more from this brand!
