Its Age Defy Brightening Cleanser (£25, arkskincare.com) works wonders for pigmentation."

Best: For tightening. While not strictly a neck cream, we felt this deservedARK Skincare Firming Serum recommended by The Independent inclusion because it does what it says on the bottle – and we really felt it made a noticeable difference to our neck. Rich in super-hydrating hyaluronic acid, this serum gives a powerful moisture boost to nourish the skin and plump out fine lines. Microalgae delivers a tightening action; vitamin C brightens and a lipopeptide stimulates collagen and elastin production.

Powerful enough to give a reassuring tightening feeling on application we were nevertheless able to use it twice a day without irritation. When used as a neck treatment, a regular application of this no-nonsense serum made our neck look loved and cared for and quite simply better.” - The Independent

ARK Skincare's AgeDefy Nourishing Moisturiser was featured in The Independent as one of the best anti-aging day creams! 

ARK Skincare's Age Defy Moisturiser featured in The Independent
"Another independent British brand, ARK Skincare groups its products by age range, making it very easy to work out which is best for you. This moisturiser is from ARK’s Age Defy range for the over 50s and is especially good for dry skin. You only need a small amount to cover the face and neck, it absorbs really easily and has a gorgeously subtle fragrance. With hyaluronic acid, peptides and vitamin C, this is a really nourishing moisturiser without being heavy upon application. Our dry skin felt more supple and hydrated after use. There’s also an added bonus: A redesign of the packaging now gives 10 per cent more product for the same price."

We're delighted to see our Pre Cleanse & Make-up Remover featuring in Elle.com's article about double cleansing. Ellle.com says:

A quick once over with micellar water simply won't cut it. This is why you need to jump on board the double cleansing bandwagon.

A quick go with a face wipe will do nothing to properly dislodge foundation and pollution particles, and if all of that is left on your skin overnight, you aren't giving your skin cells the best chance at regenerating which means no plump, youthful complexion for you.

And ARK's Pre Cleanse & Make-up Remover was given a glowing review: 

Not even waterproof mascara will win against ARK's clever Pre-Cleanse. Omega 3,6 and 9 melt make-up without stripping the skin, while grape seed and avocado oil lend and intense hit of nourishment.

Pixiwoo love our Pre Cleanse & Make-up Remover!

Regardless of how much we enjoy the process of applying our make-up, no one wants to slave away to remove it all at the end of the day! If anyone knows a thing or two about that, it's the hugely talented make-up artists Nic & Sam of Pixiwoo. We were therefore extremely flattered when we heard that the stunning sisters enjoy using our Pre Cleanse & Make-up Remover to remove stubborn make-up in an instant! 

Read on for their review:

 

 

"One thing I’m super proud of is that I never go to bed with my makeup on. I just can’t do it, even after a couple of gins! If it’s been an evening out where I have worn a heavier base of eye I find it much easier to spend an extra minute using a pre-cleanse. I know we all just want to get into bed after a late night but by giving your skin a once over with a pre-cleanse will ensure all of your makeup is removed easily, your skin will be perfectly clean and more importantly, you won’t need to wash your bed linen the next day to remove the remnants of your mascara.

I have been using ARK Pre-cleanse makeup remover for the last few weeks.

ARK's Pre Cleanse & Make-Up Remover is formulated with a multi-lipid blend to remove all traces of dirt, make-up and grime from your skin after a long day.

It’s a multi fruit mix of makeup dissolving ingredients, which lift of even the heaviest of eye makeup. Its oily texture will sink into your makeup and through circular movements will gently dislodge your layered products enabling your regular cleanser to just wipe off the stragglers and condition the skin.

What’s in it?

Grape seed, avocado oil and kiwi oil lift off makeup and soften the skin whilst Margosa Leaf Extract acts as an anti-bacterial ingredient to ensure there’s no blemish causing nasty’s lurking on the skin. There is also an Ayurvedic herb called Zi Cao, which is particularly beneficial on a sensitive skin.

The product can be poured out of the 150ml bottle allowing you to get a good amount of product to work into your skin. It’s gentle enough to use over the eyes and lips and once washed off there is no residue.

I don’t tend to use this everyday but reserve it for occasions when I need something a little stronger than my regular cleanser. It’s also a great product for removing waterproof mascara, liner and lip stains.

ARK Pre cleanse is £30.00 and available here."

The 12 best hand creams as chosen by The Independent!

Hands are as exposed as our faces and yet we hardly put any thought into skincare or protection for them. Until, that is, winter hits and they start chapping. Modern hand creams don't just boost moisture levels, they're now anti-agers too and can reduce the appearance of age spots and fine lines, and help combat eczema. From sink-side pump dispensers to balms, creams and crème-gloves, we've rounded up the best hand nourishers in the business:

 

Nasties-free (including no mineral oil and fragrance), this British niche-brand bases its hand cream on essential fatty acids and lipids to boost hydration and reinforce the skin's natural moisture barrier. While red algae targets age spots and keratin amino acid ensures nails are kept strong and healthy. Palmarosa, clary sage, rosemary, ylang ylang, jasmine and mimosa also give this cream a stunning fresh floral scent.
