Pixiwoo's latest Blog Post all about ARK!

Pixiwoo's latest Blog Post is all about our Massaging Body Brush and Body Beautiful Conditioning Oil. They provide top tips on how to use the products and explains why they're a must have to your beauty regime. 

Pixiwoo reviews ARK's Massaging Body Brush and Body Beautiful Conditioning Oil.

"After only a few circular strokes you can instantly feel that your skin is softened. The bristles on the ARK Body Brush are very firm so you will find that you can only go over the same area for a few seconds. The brush also contains smooth flexible nodules, which work together to massage, improve circulation, remove dead skin cells and leave the skin visibly glowing."
Pixiwoo provides tips on how to use ARK's Massaging Body Brush and Body Beautiful Conditioning Oil and explains why they're a must have to your beauty regime.

"The body beautiful conditioning oil smells like a spa, it’s amazing and instantly promotes a sense of calm and relaxation. It’s multi purpose and can be used as a moisturiser all over the body, as a massage oil or on the tips of your hair to treat fly away or split ends."

It can be used spritzed onto the face as a toner, sprayed after applying powder for a dewy finish, to refresh your makeup, to cool, calm and soothe the skin on hot days or when feeling flushed, and during exercise and refresh. This is an intensively refreshing and soothing beauty mist which has been formulated using bio active ingredients to hydrate and protect the skin and is well worth carrying in your bag on the go."

Talonted Lex's 'Skincare Shake Up'

Blogger Talonted Lex shows us her 'Skincare shake up August 17 edition' and one of the products shes tried and loved has been our Skin Perfecter Anti-redness serum. 
"The ARK website (and brand concept) is enormously helpful to those who are a bit confused as to where to start when it comes to skincare, because you can either take a look at products recommended by age or by skin concern. They recommend that you pick your cleanser and moisturiser based on the age bracket, and any additional products based on the specific skin issues you want to target. With that in mind, I’ve been testing out the ARK Skin Perfector Anti-redness Serum which is a wonderfully light and easily absorbed product that has helped to soothe itchy or sore skin when my rosacea has been playing up, all while helping to keep my skin hydrated."

Ditch The Make-up Wipes, This Cleanser Is The One

Recently I have been getting more into my skincare, and I'm so happy to say I have completely ditched the makeup wipes. This surprises me a lot because before they were something I couldn't live without, bad beauty blogger I know but they were just so easy. That was until I found out that skincare routines don't actually take much longer than using multiple makeup wipes to attempt to remove the daily makeup.

I have picked up a few cleansers recently to remove my makeup, but the one I've been loving the most is the Ark Skincare Age Protect Clear Cleanser*. I trialled a sample of this cleanser last year when I wasn't overly into my skincare but I wasn't fussed by it, I felt like it wasn't doing anything due to the fact that it didn't lather up very much. I was pretty clueless back then, but since trying it again I have learnt a lot, and I have fallen in love with this cleanser. It is a soap-free cleanser, which I have learnt to love because I usually do love something that you can see is working on your skin, but my skin feels so clean and fresh after using this cleanser. It doesn't leave your skin feeling dry and tight like I've found other cleansers do.

This cleanser has many ingredients that help keep your skin clear, including Oat Amino Acids to wash away skin's impurities without damaging the skin's natural barrier, and White Tea which is an anti-microbial that protects skin from spots and free radicals. It has been designed with young skin in mind, to keep your skin young for as long as possible. The whole Age Protect range is amazing, I love every product as it all works wonders on my skin. They also do Age Defend and Age Defy ranges for older ages.

The bottle is priced at £24, which may seem a lot for a cleanser but it is so worth it. I find with skincare that the higher end products are 99% usually better than drugstore alternatives, which is so different to the makeup world. Skincare is something I'm willing to splurge on as I like knowing what I'm putting on my face, and higher end brands are usually better for your skin. I use one pump per cleanse, which is enough to take off all face makeup. I do like to double cleanse if I'm wearing particularly stubborn makeup so I either use this twice, or pair it with another cleanser to leave my skin fully clean and free from the makeup I wore that day.

If you listen to any of my advice it would be to ditch those makeup wipes, they are doing nothing at all for your skin, and pick up this cleanser from Ark Skincare.

Thou Shalt Not Covet - Hydration Injection Masque

Michelle gave a glowing review of ARK's Hydration Injection Masque in her blog, Thou Shalt Not Covet.

Hi Guys!

I’ve been using products from the Age Maintain range at ARK Skincare for quite a while now, and I’m loving the effect they’re having on my skin. My complexion is far from perfect, and I do have annoying habit of touching my forehead which doesnt help, but that aside I’m beyond impressed with this collection and what it’s done for me. Overall my skin is definitely brighter, clearer and I have less blemishes than I did previously.

So I was really excited to find out that ARK have just launched a brand new product – the Hydration Injection Masque

Designed specifically to revitalise tired skin, the new Hydration Injection Masque is described as the perfect pick me up for skin which looks tired, stressed and lacking in radiance – yes this is definitely something I’d want to try on my skin!

I do love a good face mask as a treat for my often tired and dull looking complexion, but as I have sensitive, and I’ve just found out ‘very reactive’ skin, choosing a mask can be a bit of a minefield. It’s often just a case of if I don’t get a reaction then great, and if I do have a reaction I just have to deal with it – which isn’t ideal I know.

Anyway, I’ve used this mask a couple of times now and I can safely say my skin likes it, yay! No reactions here!

The product itself is semi-transparent, and has quite a thick consistency. I should also mention that this mask is part of the new Skin Perfectors range which targets specific skin concerns.

The Hydration Injection Masque contains active botanical Ingredients including an encapsulated blend of vitamins for maximum efficacy: Vitamin A to regulate collagen synthesis; Vitamin B5 for smoothness;Vitamin C to fade pigmentation and Vitamin E to prevent UV damage. Hyaluronic Acid Booster drenches skin with moisture, optimising the circulation of water through all skin layers and providing 24-hour protection against water loss, and Sugar Beet and Abyssinian Oil intensely nourish the skin for a plush, luxury skin feel.

You’re advised to use it once or twice a week, and to apply a thin layer to cleansed skin whilst avoiding the delicate eye area. ARK recommend you use the product differently depending on your age, and remove with a hot cloth –

Teens and twenties: Leave on for approximately 5 minutes.

Thirties and forties: Leave on for approximately 10 minutes.

Fifties and onwards: Leave on for approximately 20 minutes. Can also be left on overnight for an intensive treatment.

If you’re on the market for a new skin plumping and hydrating mask, I’d definitely recommend giving this a go.

ARK Hydration Injection Masque, £35 for 75ml, and is available now from ARK Skincare.

I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
