Natasha Summer's Current Skincare Routine

Natasha Summer featured the Age Defend Replenishing Moisturiser in one of her latest YouTube videos, 'My Current Skincare Routine, Winter 2018'
"I love it, not only is the packaging beautiful, but this comes out as such a thick luxurious cream and you blend it in to your skin and it just melts, it is such a hydrating but non heavy cream, so it can therefore be used during the day and at night...I find this one works well for both"

The Rawdrobe - "Currently loving: ARK Skincare"

The Rawdrobe featured our Age Protect Cleanser and our Pre Cleanse & Makeup Remover in a blog post as the products she is currently loving. She talks about what drew her to the brand and how she uses the cleansers to create her perfect double cleanse skincare routine. 
"What ultimately sucks me into their brand is the fact they have a really positive approach to ageing and each product is specially designed for a number of different ages for anyone from their teens to over fifty. So whatever age you are, there is a product there dedicated to the needs of your skin. I find this so refreshing as I think so many brands these days just recommend anything to anyone but oh no, not ARK!"
"I honestly can’t recommend this combo enough and even though I haven’t tried any other ranges of the cleanser, if they’re as good as this one then you need to get your mitts on it pronto! And just remember in this overwhelming world of skincare, that you need to use products suited to your skin, whether that’s for age or type. It’s so easy to pick up any cleanser which you’ve heard rave reviews about and slap it on your face but next time, try and tailor your skincare to your skin. The clue is in the name!"

Beauty Queen UK - Pre cleanse & make-up remover review

'Beauty Queen UK' writes a glowing review on our pre cleanse & makeup remover.
Ark Skincare Pre Cleanse & Make-Up Remover
"The one product I have just finishing using up is the Pre Cleanse and Make-Up Remove...I always ensure that I double cleanse every day. Living in London, a city which is over polluted means my skin can change from week to week and I do change my skincare up and down as I feel I need to, but double cleansing is always a must because there is nothing quite like taking the day off your face. This cleanser...lifts literally everything off your face, even that waterproof mascara that is a complete pain to remove and with it comes all the surface dirt and grime which has deposited itself on your skin throughout the day. It always amazes me just how much 'muck' comes off my face, even though my journey too and from work on average is less than an hour!"
Ark Skincare Pre Cleanse & Make-Up Remover
"A cleanser which, thanks to its oily texture, grabs hold of everything and removes it so effectively and it leaves your skin feeling absolutely clean, soft and smooth ready for the following cleanse.  To use it, I simply ensure my face is damp and then pouring just a small amount into the palm of one hand, I massage it onto my face using circular movements to ensure that the gunk knows I am coming for it, then once I have finished the massaging, I use a muslin cloth to remove everything that has come loose, look in shock and horror at what has been found, then splash my face with warm water to ensure I have removed absolutely everything I possibly can and then do my second cleanse."

Mummy's Beauty Corner - 'Three vegan brands worth checking out'

As November is 'World Vegan Month', Dagmara on 'Mummy's Beauty Corner' decided to write about brands and products that are vegan friendly, and for those that are not vegan however like more natural beauty products, show some products worth trying. 
ARK Skincare was on this list as we are vegan friendly and cruelty free. Dagmara focused on our Age Defend Moisturiser. 
"It feels lightweight on the skin, doesn't leave it greasy yet it hydrates and nourishes it making it soft, calmed and smooth...The moisturiser contains also clinically proven anti-ageing peptides, including Matrixyl, which smooth out wrinkles and plump out  the skin for a more youthful looking complexion. Vitamin A (retinol) helps to increase collagen production and plump the skin, Kiwi and Passion Fruit lipids are packed with Omega 3 fatty acids to boost skin’s moisture, Blue Lotus, the ‘sacred flower of anti-ageing’ is a powerful antioxidant which boosts firmness and elasticity of the skin."
"I absolutely love the jar with airless pump, which you need to press firmly down to dispense the product, so hygienic and it keeps the moisturiser locked away from air which causes oxidation of some ingredients. One pump of cream is plenty for entire face and neck, there's subtle herbal scent which I'm not the biggest fan of but fortunately it dissipates very quickly."

Lady Writes - Gift Guide : The Candle Edit

Lady Writes wrote a beautiful blog post about the best candles you should be buying this Christmas, featuring our lovely travel candles. 
"Candles make such fantastic gifts - everyone loves a good scented candle after all. You can't go wrong with giving a scented candle as a gift, it's just about finding the right one for the person you're giving it to."
"I only recently started buying travel candles, and now I don't go anywhere without them. They're perfect for when going on holidays, or visiting friends, to lightly scent a room and create a relaxing atmosphere - no matter how far from home you are. If you're buying for someone who travels a lot for business or pleasure then these gorgeous Ark Travel Candles would make the perfect gift. There's several scents to pick from - favourites of mine are the Vanilla, Sandalwood and Amber which is perfect for musk lovers and then the Rose, Geranium and Violet which is perfect for the floral fragrance fans. Both have a delicate scent which won't overpower, but will lightly fragrance any space to smell exactly as your chosen person would like. Hand poured, each candle comes housed in a handy tin and has approximately 22 hours of burn time."

'A skincare brand that's a must' - Lucy Alice Brooksbank

Lucy Alice Brooksbank has featured our products in her latest blog post, 'A skincare brand that's a must'. She features some beautiful images and a great review of our products. 
"I’ve definitely found that I’ve had clearer, brighter skin in the last few weeks since I discovered ARK Skincare. Each range is formulated to complement and enhance your skin through every life stage."
"My four step staple skincare routine starts with the products above. The age protect range is for younger skin- packed with essential nutrients that balance hydration for a clear complexion. The clear cleanser is soup free and full of omega 9 lipids, Vitamin E and B5, white tea, watercress and nettle horsetail. It lathers into your skin so well and feels gentle whilst banishing skin impurities and excess sebum- its my new best friend!"

"The age protect vitality moisturiser is loaded with peach lipids, avocado oil, vitamin B5 and E, white tea, creatine and anti-pollution algae. It has plumped my skin and made it feel super soft and hydrated. Its rich in antioxidants and provides daily protection from the urban environment. The packaging is genius as the cream sits in an airless jar designed to fully evacuate leaving no wastage. "

"The skin perfect exfoliator really does make your skin feel PERFECT! I was going through periods of having really fine tiny bumps over my cheeks that felt rough and looked irritated. .........After my first use I couldn't believe the smoothness of my skin- it was like milk and honey! A real life savour!"

"Lastly the skin perfect hydration injection masque. It’s so rich, melts into the skin and really makes you look luminous before you’ve even washed it off!....Its an ideal weekly pick me up for when skin is looking tired/ stressed or lacking radiance."

Natasha Summer's September Favourites

Natasha Summer featured our Age Defend Conditioning Cleanser and Age Defend Replenishing Moisturiser in her 'September Favourites' YouTube video. 
Natasha Summer included ARK Age Defend Conditioning Cleanser in her 'September Favourites' YouTube video.
"The ARK Defend Conditioning Cleanser - My skin in the past month has been playing up and I think its because I have been extremely stressed throughout the month.... and I just feel my eating has gone a little bit out the window and sleep has not been that great and it has definitely shown in my skin. This really calms my skin down, its a really nice rich cleanser that just removes all makeup, there are no bells and whistles to it, its just really gentle and effective and my skin has been responding to it really really well. I really enjoy it, I enjoy the scent as well."
Natasha Summer included ARK Age Defend Replenishing Moisturiser in her 'September Favourites' YouTube video.
"Along with it I have been using the ARK Age Defend replenishing moisturiser. What I love about this is it is just so light weight, it sinks in really quickly but it gives you a beautiful hit of hydration and my makeup goes on top of this flawlessly, it just feels replenished, restored, plumper. I really enjoy it. This is actually formulated for people of my age, so 30s to 40s, I am 31, its a gorgeous formula, really targets around the eye area and tightens everything up, I've just been really enjoying it and the packaging is beautiful as well. So big big fan of ARK Skincare!"

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."
