I have recently tried the Skinn Collagenesis range from Skinn (courtesy of Idealworld.TV who no longer stock it) and I got to try some of their hero products.
Skinn is a top selling international skincare and colour cosmetic brand and the brainchild of industry veteran Dimitri James, a professional makeup artist and licensed esthetician whose work has been seen on the runway and the red carpet, as well as national and international TV shows and magazines. As well as training makeup artists and estheticians for renowned beauty brands, he is the author of two books, “Becoming Beauty” and “Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls”.
Skinn says they focus on what goes into the jar and how it will make you look, using the company motto “what counts is inside” and they only use pure, natural ingredients and traditional methods of preparation. It is this, they say, that makes Skinn different from other cosmetic brands.
I was sent four products to try:-
* Skinn Collagenesis 24 Hour Cream 50ml
* Stem Rejen Face Serum 30ml
* Stem Rejen Eye Serum 15ml
* Lip Stem Rejen 15ml
The 24-hour youth preservation cream is fortified with plant-derived peptides, Collagenesis which contains no waxes, no parabens, no petrochemicals and no mineral oil. It can be used both day and night to help keep skin feel softer as well as help to even the skin tone and firm the skin.
The facial serum is formulated has three key ingredients, Glacier Water, Snow Algae Powder and Alpine Rose. Glacier Water helps to keep the skin moisturised, whereas the Snow Algae helps to increase the longevity of the skin’s smooth, radiant appearance. Alpine Rose helps to enhance the skin’s natural vitality and allows the skin to cope better with climate changes.
The eye serum is formulated with a natural plumping active derived from the resin of the Indian tree Guggul, as well as the key ingredients from the facial serum.
Lastly, the Collagenesis Lip Stem Rejen Serum Elite 15ml is formulated with a naturally derived active obtained from sesame seeds that help to smooth lines around the lip including, marionette and nasolabial folds, for a more rejuvenated and youthful appearance. You can use it morning and night on your mouth area and laughter lines and as and when needed throughout the day.
I liked the value for money advanced skincare formulations, the elegant packaging and the lovely colours of the potions – a bright pink and yellow. I found the 24-hour preservation cream curiously springy in texture but with all four products, a little went a long way.
I found the products to be gentle on my skin, easily absorbed and unfragranced which my skin certainly appreciates. I have found that as I have got older, my skin has become increasingly sensitive and prone to break out.
My favourite of the four was the lip serum designed to minimise those annoying tell-tale lines around your lips – you know the ones – the lines that seem to absorb red lipstick! I found it had an instant effect and will be popped in my handbag.
If you would like to try the four Skinn products above, you can find all of them at Skinn.com.
Also check out Skinn Insta-Fill for Eyes, a line filling treatment designed to instantly create smooth skin around the eye area, and Insta-Fill for Lips, which will stop your lipstick from feathering and make your colour last longer.
