Beauty Bag Secrets - Full ARK Review

Beauty Bag Secrets provides a full review of our Age Defend products and our Hydrating Beauty Mist. 
Beauty Bag Secrets reviews ARK's Age Defend products and Hydrating Beauty Mist.
"What excites me about ARK Skincare is that the brand has been developed to deliver age intelligent formulas to complement and enhance skin for the age you are."
ARK's Hydrating Beauty Mist received a glowing review at Beauty Bag Secrets for its fresh minty smell and dewy effect.

"The Hydrating Beauty Mist was a pleasant addition to my skincare routine.  I am absolutely in love with the fresh minty smell of this mist.  Initially I only used the mist in the evenings after cleansing and before moisturing to provide my skin with another layer of hydration.  A few days later I started applying the mist after applying my makeup (I use a powder foundation) for a fresh dewy look.  My skin literally couldn’t ‘drink’ it up quick enough."  

"This is a real winner for me, so much so that I took it on holiday with me to Belgium. We drove from Belgium to Luxembuorg and back via France to London in 32 degree heat. I can honestly say that on that day my quick draw with this mist would have impressed any cowboy in a Western shootout."

Beauty Bag Secrets loved ARK's Age Defend products and Hydrating Beauty Mist.
 "I don’t wear a lot of make up day-to-day so the cleanser removed all traces of my makeup without the need for a double cleanse.  Packed with ingredients like Moringa Oil rich in Vitamin A and C, this cleanser left my skin feeling clean, plump and ready to absorb the next layer of my skincare."
 
"The (moisturiser) container has an airless pump which means it delivers the exact amount of product needed every time.  I tend to overdo my moisturiser which usually leaves me with a lot of excess product which my skin doesn’t absorb.  My skin felt nourished but not greasy which has sometimes been the case with other moisturisers I have tried."

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."

Image of Ark's skin essentials hydrating beauty mist.
"I love products which serve more than one purpose, and the ARK Hydrating Beauty Mist (£25) is one of those gems. 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."

Albertine Sarah trusts ARK's Age Protect Skin Vitality Moisturiser to keep her skin hydrated as a 'twenty-something, busy, creative, hyper London gal'.
One of her tips is that 'hydration is key'. For this she features our age protect skin vitality moisturiser; "I don’t leave my house without putting on a moisturiser, my skin just doesn’t feel the same without it!". "When it comes to moisturiser, it’s all about your skin type and what it responds well to. I know mine likes all of the moisture and hydration, but yours may prefer something lighter, so follow the formulas you know work for you, but don’t skip it!"

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."

Kirsty Gallacher's Top Summer Picks

Susie Amy gave us an insight into her best friend Kirsty Gallacher's top 9 picks for summer. This included our rich and silky conditioning oil. 
"I love everything about this oil. I much prefer an oil on my body – as opposed to creams. The ARK Skincare Conditioning Oil is a multi use product – it hydrates my scalp, my hair and my body. It gives my skin a glow and leaves it lightly scented. It makes me feel as though I’ve just walked out of a spa. And I love there is nothing but goodness in it – the fragrance is 100% natural." - Kirsty
Kirsty Gallacher loves the glow and light scent ARK Skincare Conditioning Oil gives her skin.

Tash Pantz shows us ‘THE BUSY GIRL’S SKINCARE ROUTINE’

Photo of blogger Tash Pantz who 'absolutely loves' products from ARK's Skin Perfector Range.

We are delighted to hear that blogger Tash Pantz ‘absolutely loves’ products from our skin perfector range. She has previously struggled with finding a skincare routine which works for her, but has now found her perfect quick and easy routine to fit in with her busy lifestyle while improving her skin, and this involves only a handful of products, 3 of which are from our range at ARK skincare.

Tash Pantz found her perfect quick and easy skincare routine using 3 products from ARK's Skin Perfector range.

“This serum has made the biggest difference to my skin and I have definitely seen my skin improve in leaps and bounds since introducing it to my routine.”

ARK's Skin Perfector Triple Action Exfoliator has done wonders for Tash Pantz' skin.

“I use this exfoliator twice a week as directed and I must say it has done wonders for my skin. It's amazing that something so gentle can slough away dead skin and debris from the skin to reveal a more polished and plump texture.”

Our Pre Cleanse & Make-up Remover features on Elle.com

ARK's Pre Cleanse & Make-up Remover is featured in Elle.com's article about double cleansing.ARK's Pre Cleanse & Make-up Remover was praised by Elle.com for its ability to dislodge make-up and pollution without stripping the skin.

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.

Elle.com recommends ARK's Pre Cleanse & Make-up Remover as an effective part of your double cleansing routine.

Check out how Susie Amy uses her Radiance Serum!

Adding a few drops of serum in with my foundation gives the most fabulous glow. This tip was given to me by Stephanie Pratt when I introduced her to ARK Skincare’s Radiance Serum. She loved the product and when I asked her how she used it, as well as using it in it’s recommended way as a serum underneath her moisturiser, she would mix a few drops in with her foundation. I’ve never seen skin as good as Steph’s so I’ve started doing the same! I use MAC’s Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation in shade NC20 every day at work at the moment – great coverage without being heavy and I mix in the serum that not only makes me glow but is a potent blend of encapsulated Vitamin C and Amino Acids.

Sian Victoria : A trio of Skincare for teens & 20s

ARK Skincare's Skin Clear Cleanser and Skin Vitality Moisturiser with their Skin Perfector Hydration Injection Masque

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

Remove the effects of pollution from your skin, and treat your face gently with ARK Skincare's 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

ARK Skincare's Hydration Injection Masque is an intensive hydration masque designed to keep skin supple and moisturised, as well as restore vibrant skin.

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

A bottle of ARK Skincare's Age Protect Skin Vitality Moisturiser is the best moisturiser for people between their teens and 20s.

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.

Blusher & Blogging : New Hydrating Beauty Mist - Sun Make-Up, Travel, Refresh

ARK Skincare launched their newest product at the start of April – the ‘Hydrating Beauty Mist’. The fabulous point of this product is that it can be used in so many different ways. I’ve been spritzing it on all of my work friends at ‘Out Of Order’ and it’s become very popular!

For me this is the perfect beach accessory, travel accessory – to help the skin recover after a plane journey or in extreme heat or drying air conditioning. As my friend the fabulous make-up artist Daniel Sandler said it’s the perfect make-up pick me up spray. You can spritz it right over your make-up for a glow. This is what I do before I go on stage every night. He also mentioned it in his make-up recommendations for menopausal skin – it’s cooling and soothing. 

ARK Skincare's Hydrating Beauty Mist reduces skin roughness and mimics the skin's natural moisturising function to keep your skin supple and hydrated.

 

Ingredients

Hyaluronic Acid (The ultimate hydrator my all time favourite ingredient)

Amino Acids (Supports the skin’s natural functions and encourages the cells to produce collagen and elastin)

Wild Water Mint (The light scent from the water mint is divine and refreshing)

Aloe Vera (Anti Inflammatory and soothes irritated skin)

Allantoin (Soothing and stimulates cell production)

Goji Berry (High in Vitamin C helps to protect the skin from oxidative stress)

Blue Lotus (Antioxidant with anti-inflammatory benefits) 

 

Susie Amy uses ARK Skincare's Hydrating Beauty Mist as the perfect travel, beach and poolside accessory.

For my skin this is the perfect poolside accessory – my skin doesn’t love the heat – and although I always use sun protection this is a cooling spritz that instantly calms the skin. It can be used easily over sun protection.

The mist is suitable for vegans and contains no parabens, SLS, mineral oil, S.D. Alcohol, formaldehyde, or artificial colours or fragrance. The full range is free from the undesirable ingredients above and ARK Skincare has never tested on animals. If you have remotely sensitive or reactive skin I cannot recommend trying the products from this range enough.

To Buy

ARK Skincare’s Hydrating Beauty Mist is £25.00 HERE

The bottle is 150ml which contains a lot of spritzes!

As ARK’s no1 fan I have a discount code for readers of blusherandblogging.com which is SUSIE15 – you get 15% off any product in the range using the code at checkout.

I will be joining ARK Skincare at the Beauty UK Show at the NEC in Birmingham on the 22nd May so if you’re there come and say hello and I will spritz you! I love the beauty shows and I’m delighted to have the day off work so that I can be there.
