Skincare Products

As many of you may know by now life has been a little out of sorts with our flat purchase falling through at the last minute. Taking care of myself fell down to the bottom of my priorities and I was so shocked at how the stress of it all effected my skin. 

When Celavive got in touch with me I jumped at the chance of testing out their new skincare range, by this point I had broken out in almost every zone of my face and I was looking so grey and washed out. I could tell my skin was craving being properly looked after again and a new skincare routine was exactly what I needed to kickstart me back into taking care of myself. 

My skin used to be very oily, but after treatment for my acne a few years ago it settled down to be more of a combination completion and I tried their combination/oily regimen. 

First in the routine is a Creamy Foam Cleanser, which lathers up beautifully when applied to the skin, taking away any dirt and impurities. Although cleansing, it leaves the skin feeling hydrated and not sensitive. The best thing about all of the Celavive products is that they all feature scientific benefits, the cleaner contains Olivol™ which is a botanical blend of fruit extracts that have been clinically shown to provide 24 hours of hydration after just one application. 

Next up it’s time to tone, the Perfecting Toner gently purifies and balances the pH levels of your skin. The toner also includes Olivol™ and a very special complex which features InCelligence™ technology. It is made up of two bioactive peptides and two botanical extracts which help battle any fine lines. I have started to notice a few lines appearing on my forehead and I can’t wait to see the results of this stuff.

My under eyes are probably the one area of my face I am most conscious of and with all the sleepless nights from the stress of the flat I was so happy to have the Hydrating Eye Essence. It’s super lightweight but also intensely moisturising and I’m sure I am have seen a difference in my dark circles and puffiness since using it. It’s also got the magical InCelligence™ complex as well as Olivol™. 

I then had two creams, a Vitalizing Serum to reduce the loss of elasticity in the skin which I used in the morning and the Replenishing Night Gel which enriches your skin with natural botanicals and peptides to revitalise your skin overnight. I saw results with both of these products within one day as my skin felt plumper and softer in both look and touch. 

As always you need a SPF in any skin routine, the Protective Day Lotion has a broad spectrum SPF30 which was extremely light weight, blended into my skin beautiful and also sat nicely under my makeup. 

I couldn’t believe how much my skin benefitted from sticking to one set of products and getting back to using a regular skincare routine. I was particularly taken with the eye cream and I am certain I would be looking much more tired after the last few weeks I have had if I hadn’t been applying this one every night.
