How do you keep your hands soft and supple? - A good hand cream!
Without mentioning what is going on right now, it's easy to say that we're all adamant about washing our hands a lot more. While this is extremely important, it's very easy to let your hands get dry, especially in the cold weather. So, as a gift from us to you, we're adding in a free hand cream to every order placed over £5.
To help you to understand what makes this product a multi-award winning staple in our range, we thought we would share the ingredients that make it up, what they do and how they benefit the skin.
Raspberry Seed Oil
Raspberry seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids such as omega 3, omega 6 and omega 9. It also contains high levels of vitamin E making it the perfect lipid choice for daily protection as it provides protection and moisture retention for the skin.
Shea Butter & Cocoa Butter
Shea butter melts at skin temperature, helping to moisturise the skin as it easily absorbed without leaving the skin feeling sticky. It is well-known for overcoming dry, irritated and sensitized skin and cocoa butter can help to improve elasticity.
Kiwi & Avocado Oil
Kiwi oil helps to maintain moisture in the skin and prevent drying and scaling. It can also help aid in the relief of itchy, scaly, irritated skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. The fatty acids within avocado oil have excellent moisturising properties that help regenerate and rejuvenate the skin.
Grapeseed Oil is rich in both Omega 6 and vitamin E, which helps to moisturise the skin and give it the ability to bounce back. It is easily absorbed by the skin and leaves it feeling soft and silky. This oil also contains a powerful antioxidant ingredient called proanthocyanidin. This antioxidant may even out skin tone when it’s used on your skin consistently.
Red algae is known for its amazing skin benefits including increasing moisture, moisture retention and promoting smooth skin. It also has the ability to block UV rays, protecting the skin against pigmentation, sun damage, and dark spots. It has also been clinically proven to prevent wrinkles.
Blackcurrant Seed Oil
Press & Awards
I find it tough to find products that can do a bit of everything. Make your makeup last, protect your skin, make you glow and also make you look flawless all at the same time.
ARK Skincare very kindly sent me their Award Winning Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer and it made me incredibly happy. All opinions are my own and very honest. I had previously spoke to them at a blogging event and heard all about their award winning products that can help with many skin concerns all at once.
Not only does it give you a flawless finish and hydrate your skin for a natural glow, it protects your skin against UVA and UVB rays to prevent sun damage and premature ageing. I find that my makeup glides on effortlessly after applying just a very small amount, and also helps to blur any blemishes that I’m dealing with.
It’s lightweight formula feels very natural and helps your skin breath, even with makeup on. Due to its light formula it gives your skin a dewy finish depending on the foundation you choose to use. I tend to use medium coverage dewy foundations, but it also works incredibly well with matte finishes as it keeps your skin hydrated. I’ve also used just this without applying any face makeup and it made such a difference to brighten up my skin.
I will most definitely be using this more and more when the weather brightens up and for my summer travels due to its SPF formulation – who wants premature ageing, right? RRP £36.00.
