First of all, we would like to wish you all a happy new year! I hope you all had a great time celebrating and weren’t too bothered by the cold!
It’s our very first edition of 2015! And this month, we’re so excited to reveal our January ‘Best of British’ Edition packed with 6 beauty staples from some of favourite british brands in skin care, makeup and hair care products!
Now speaking of the cold – I’ve been getting dry skin lately. Is it just me or are we all fed up with how our skin feels during the winter months? I feel like I’ve been layering my skin with moisturisers for the past couple of months but my skin still feels dry within the hour!
So naturally I’m excited to reveal the first product in our January ‘Best of British’ Edition that I was able to test and will be sharing my thoughts on…
The Replenish Serum for Dry or Scarred Skin (5ml, £8) from Hertfordshire based brand S5 Skincare.
As soon as I received it, I thought to myself ‘great! Let’s hope this helps me out in this cold weather!’
The first thing I noticed when I saw the S5 Replenish Serum was the sleek packaging it came in. Not only does it look great, but you can also control how many drops of the serum you choose to use with its pipette type applicator.
When I opened the serum I noticed it had a sweet but subtle scent which I really liked. Similar to a relaxation oil.
Using it, I noticed that it was not greasy and a little goes a long way. I used this serum on my hands and on my face where I have some dryer patches. It immediately seeps into your skin, making your skin feel soft but not oily.
Some of you may be wondering how it would work under my makeup. Well, the good news is, it doesn’t leave any residue, it’s a great base to use under a primer.
So this product was certainly a win for me and with the additional benefits of helping with damaged skin such as scarring and helping the elasticity of your skin, it’s certainly something that will help us on the journey to smoother, glowing skin.
Not to mention this fab find is organic! The key ingredients include desert argan oil, desert pomegranate oil, chilean rosehip oil and arctic sea buckthorn; making it rich in omega 5,6,7, & 9 as well as vitamin C & E.
If you don’t like using ‘dry’ serums then maybe you can add this to your favourite moisturiser or even your primer before you do your makeup. Either way this is a great and versatile essential I think you will love as part of your 2015 skin care regime!
