Luxury skincare at competitive prices, delivered to your home so you don’t even need to go out? Yes please!
That was the thought I had when Skinstation, an online skincare store contacted me! They are passionate about improving skin concerns across the UK with clinically proven skincare systems and as a busy midlife mum, I’m always looking for products that work, especially nourishing the skin and smoothing out fine lines.
With over 60 years combined experience in dermatology and cosmetic medicine, I took their recommendation for a skincare regime and I’ve been testing the products they sent for a few weeks.
First up we have the Oil Free Moisture Cushion by Dr Dennis Gross.
This day cream is lovely, it has a nice consistency and smoothes on really well. It is an enriched formula using Japanese marine algae and hyaluronic acid chonospheses to lock moisture into the skin and keep it looking dewy, supple and plump all day so it’s a fabulous anti-ageing product.
The key actives are Japanese Marine, Algae, Sodium Hyaluronate, Aloe Extract – the Japanese Marine Algae enhances elasticity and moisture content whilst the Sodium Hyaluronate hydrates skin snd Aloe Extract calms and soothes. Priced at £59 for the pot is it is line with the price range of other premium skincare brands and I would recommend this product. I’ve been enjoying using this cream.
Next up we have a night cream. The one they sent me was the Obagi-C® Fx C-Therapy Night Cream. This one is a combination of a skin brightening agent (Arbutin) and a blend of Vitamins C and E to help provide nourishment and added radiance. I have to be totally honest, I didn’t much like this cream. It has a very heavy thick consistency and the smell whilst not unpleasant, is not what I would call ‘pleasant’ either. With my skincare, I like it to be pleasing in it’s look, consistency, smell and how easily it is applied as well as the results it offers, and this one was a bit too thick for my liking.
However a great benefit it has is that it helps to even out uneven skin tones for a lighter, brighter appearance. I decided to flip my expectations on this cream – looking for the positives, so rather than see this as a night cream to be applied easily when I’m getting ready for bed, I have started to view this as an overnight sleep mask instead, which helps me view the thick consistency in a more positive light.
It costs £69 and is best suited for dry, normal and oily skin types, if you have ever tried this and have a different viewpoint to my own I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
Thank you to Skinstation for introducing me to your website and product range.
