Eucerin Sensitive Skin Saviours

Eucerin is a brand that I know quite well and I adore their cleansers and one of my favourite toners is by this brand. And let’s not forget about the Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm. I think I have 3 tubes floating around at the moment. Moms, this balm is a must have!  I was recently sent a press pack containing 4 products that I was very excited to try. I was especially keen on the sunscreen as I followed the launch on Twitter and Instagram and it sounded perfect for my sensitive, oily skin. The Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control Dry Touch Face SPF50+ (holy crap that’s a mouthful) claims to offer superior photoprotection and an anti-shine effect for oily and acne-prone skin. Now we all know why we should wear sunscreen, so I don’t have to go on about that. This product also contains loads of difficult to pronounce ingredients that offers cellular and DNA protection and oil regulation. That sounds awesome, but I’m sure you are here to hear if it works or not. YES! We went to a braai on the most recent public holiday and it was a beautifully warm and sunny day. I knew we were going to sit outside and savour every warm ray, so it was the perfect day to test it out.

REN Instant Firming Beauty Shot Review

I have a deep love for REN Skincare. Every single REN product I’ve tried has proven to be excellent. My favourites include Flash Rinse, Clarimatte™ Invisible Pore Detox Mask, Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, the Resurfacing AHA Concentrate and the amazing Moroccan Rose Otto body range. I have another one to add to the above list… REN Instant Firming Beauty Shot. This serum is said to instantly lift, firm and plump to give the skin a smoother, tighter and more youthful appearance. What REN says: ‘Instant Firming Beauty shot is formulated with a liquid matrix of Phycocolloids and two different Hyaluronans. The Hyaluronans work together to produce both short and long term improvements in skin firmness. Hyaluronan 1 acts as a cell messenger focused on improving cell cohesion leading to an instant tightening and lifting effect. Hyaluronan 2 works deeper down in conjunction with dermal fibroblasts to boost elastin synthesis and improve long term skin firmness.’ An evaluation on 30 women proved promising: •83%* of women said their skin felt firmer 30 minutes after application and 90%* said their skin felt firmer after 6 Hours •87%* of women said their skin felt more lifted 30 minutes after application and this remained at 87% after 6 Hours •In a clinical evaluation performed by a dermatologist 100%* of women showed an improvement in skin smoothness after 30 minutes and 87%* continued to show an improvement in skin smoothness after 6 Hours What I say: At first I didn’t really feel that this gel-like serum did much. It felt nice and smells lovely, but I didn’t really notice an ‘instant’ change in my skin. THEN after a few days...
