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.
“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.”
“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.”

Did you hear how model and actress Leah Hackett achieved skin which looks better than ever? Leah tells us:
"As I’m now in I’m my thirties I have been looking for a low maintenance skin routine that will help me try to protect me from those fine lines that are about to appear any day now. And I’m happy to say I have found it. Yippee! I tried out the age defend for 30’s-40’s and have been using the products consistently since April and my skin is looking and feeling better than ever"

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.

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.

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
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
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
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.

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.
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)
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.
ARK Skincare’s Hydrating Beauty Mist is £25.00 HERE
The bottle is 150ml which contains a lot of spritzes!
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.
When I am making a health conscious effort, I like to start my day with a hot water and lemon, but more often than not I revert to my traditional favourite, a large cup of Yorkshire tea, the stronger the better, especially when I am replying to the first emails of the day! My work often requires a very early start, so having a general routine is essential. Before applying my make-up I begin with a daily skincare routine.
I like to use Skincare products that are paraben free and contain natural ingredients, which is why I absolutely love ARK Skincare! I begin my routine by using their Hydration Beauty Mist, it really helps cleanse and freshen the skin, I then follow with their replenishing moisturiser and finish with their primer, then it's time for another cuppa and applying my make-up.

Those fine, horizontal dehydration lines are often mistaken for signs of accelerated ageing, when actually, unlike reversing time, combatting a lack of moisture is a realistic skincare goal to reach. Along with sipping on plenty of aqua and getting a healthy diet in place, there are a ton of products out there to quench thirsty complexions. Where to start? Here are six we’re really loving…
ARK SKIN PERFECTOR HYDRATION INJECTION MASQUE
If you’ve got a big event, wedding, or holiday to look forward to and want to appear radiant and rested, this is your product. It’s packed with mighty hyaluronic acid (your best beauty friend for dehydrated skin) and quite literally, transforms a tired face from grey and dry to plumped up and completely comforted. The thick gel texture is like a big, moisture hug for stressed skin. There’s also a lovely addition of vitamin C to brighten. £35 | SHOP
