Have you ever looked at a brand and fell in love with too many products for your wallet to keep up? This is how I felt looking at Skin Creamery. Luckily for us they created this box filled with deluxe size samples of the whole Skin Creamery Range.
We have seen this brand all over social media and Im sure they made it to many “need to have” lists, mine included. When I saw they had a set with the whole range I jumped and ordered it from The Beautiful Store the moment it was available. (Go check out this online store, it is jam packed with all your beauty needs and then some).
I absolutely love the clean and minimalistic approach of the packaging. It says what it needs to and let the product speak for itself. There is no extra clutter writing on the bottles. When looking at the Skin Creamery Range I get the feeling of organic, calm and a sense of clean right down to my soul.
The glass packaging makes it feel extra luxurious and each product has got the perfect lid. Whether it is a pipet or a pump, it works perfectly for that product. Not only a pretty face, hey! With each bottle you can easily identify which is which and their range is just versatile enough to cover a full skin care regimen. Yet small enough to attend to every little detail.
Skin Creamery Range
What a beautiful cleanser! It is soft on the skin, nourishing your lashes and brows while it lifts make-up and other impurities. I find it easy to use and even gave myself a bit of a “face-massage” while taking off my makeup. Waterproof mascara was no challenge for this cleanser, and best of all – it did not sting my eyes. Just before I rinse, I add some luke warm water (just a few drops) to emulsify the oil and create a milky cleanser. My skin does not feel dry or stripped, it actually feels soft and hydrated when using this cleanser. You can use this in your morning and evening routine and it is suitable for all skin types.
The skin tonic is a two phase product. There is a layer of oil that you have to shake up before use. A beautiful, soft and subtle scent of rose comes through when you use this after your normal cleanser. The skin tonic can double up as a moisturiser for people with an oilier skin, but I prefer to use it as a toner. It is great for not only after sun care, but also for men after they have shaved. The skin tonic is suitable for all skin types as it is soft and gentle.
Facial Cleansing Powder
Out of all the products in the range, this is the most interesting one to me. It took me a few times using this powder to get the consistency right, but it was worth the trail and error. You take a bit of the powder and then you mix some water to create a paste which will gently exfoliate your skin. The paste is a little bit rough, but there is no harsh beads when exfoliating. Now if you want to take this to a whole new level, then you add some natural honey to create a face mask. “Oh honey!” You will love it. Once again all skin types can use the facial cleansing powder.
Facial Hydrating Oil
I absolutely love the dropper on this bottle. It is so easy to use and make it mess and hassle free. When I use this oil you should know that I am in need of some EXTRA moisture for my skin. As an oily to combination skin type I felt that the oil took some time before sinking into my skin. This left me looking like a glazed doughnut at times. To me this is definitely a “only now and again” evening routine product. They say its suitable for all skin types, but I feel that some might need it less than others.
The Everyday Cream for Face and Body
I think the name says it all. You can literally use this all over as it lightweight enough for the face, but rich enough to hydrate the rest of your body. As I mentioned in my full review, it sinks into the skin very quickly without leaving you greasy. I found the scent to be something to get use to, but it is said to have 100% natural fragrance. There is also the option to purchase a refill which I think is very clever.
I have done a full review on two out of the five products here. Please come show this old post some love.
