Sian Victoria : A trio of Skincare for teens & 20sJun 28, 2017
If you follow my Instagram Stories you would have seen a while ago that I received a lovely package from Ark Skincare featuring the skin clear cleanser, hydration injection masque and skin vitality moisturiser. It’s a skincare brand I had never heard of before but after checking out the range and product reviews I couldn’t wait to add this trio to my beauty routine. I’ve been using them for almost two months now and there almost empty so I thought now’s the time to review my new favourite British skincare brand.
ARK AGE PROTECT SKIN CLEAR CLEANSER
The ARK Age Protect Skin Clear Cleanser is formulated for teens & 20s. It’s a soap free face wash with anti-bacterial properties and washes away impurities without stripping the skin’s natural moisture balance. It contains watercress, nettle, Oat Amino Acids and horsetail to eliminate shine, sebum and reduce acne. It also contains white tea and vitamin E to help reduce skin damage.
Firstly, it lathers up well and feels lovely on the skin, I massage it in a circular motion paying attention to my t-zone. After removing the cleanser with luke warm water I then wash my face again as I find doing a double cleanse has really helped my skin in the past few months to remove every trace of makeup and dirt thus preventing any unwanted blemishes.
ARK SKIN PERFECTOR HYDRATION INJECTION MASQUE
The ARK Skin Perfector Hydration Injection masque contains a blend of vitamins such as vitamin A to keep the skin supple, vitamin B5 to keep it smooth, vitamin C to brighten and vitamin E for antioxidant protection. It also contains Hyaluronic acid, sugar beet and Abyssinian oil to provide moisture and a youthful glow.
Sunday evenings are my day for pampering, so after a double cleanse I apply the hydration injection masque all over my face and leave it for 20 minutes to ensure my skin soaks up all those vitamins. Ark are an age aware skincare brand, they recommend teens – twenties keep the masque on for five minutes however I keep it on for longer for a more intensive treatment, which is what’s recommended for those aged fifties and onwards. After washing off the clear masque, I apply a toner and then the Ark skin vitality moisturiser. By Monday morning my skin feels soft and looks healthy, bright and pampered.
ARK SKINCARE AGE PROTECT SKIN VITALITY MOISTURISER
To complete my skincare routine, I finish with the ARK age protect skin vitality moisturiser . Its rich in antioxidants, avocado (yes avocado, got to love those green mushy things!), marine algae, peach lipids, omega 9 fatty acids and vitamins A, C & E. To help prevent the skin from dryness, dullness and harmful environmental influences.
The moisturiser leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated, however I avoid using it before applying makeup as I do find it adds to my already shiny complexion. So, I smoother it all over my face and neck before bed and stick to my usual matte skincare in the morning.
Overall, I’m really impressed with the Ark skincare range, since doing a double cleanse my blemishes have reduced significantly including smoothing out my forehead where I’ve been experiencing facial bumps over the past few years (more on that soon, got a great post lined up to help others that suffer with a bumpy complexion), the injection masque adds moisture and makes my skin feel truly pampered.
