2018 shall always remain as the year I meet Skyn ICELAND, no, I did not meet the team in real life, but i meet their products, and today I’m going to show you six of my very top picks from the brand
If you are unfamiliar with Skyn ICELAND, is a skincare line created by Sarah Kugelman to address the skin thats is affected by the stress of everyday life and poor diet.. we all been there! Stress is this bitch who not only doesn’t let you sleep at night but also can lead to a variety of biological changes in the body, and some of these changes will straightup damage our skin.
And that sold it for me! I not only use my skincare just as skincare I also use it as quality time with myself, almost like meditation if you will! Skincare is my Yoga
Back in August, when I was offered to try some of their products I was literally over the moon for the opportunity, now 3+months later I’m a Skyn Iceland fan!
As I was saying I have been testing Skyn ICELAND products for a while, and I already repurchased some of them! Now I feel like I can speak confidently about and show you my top six picks from the brand.
So without further ado, let’s talk about my Skyn ICELAND top picks
Pure Cloud Cream with Arctic Berries and Peptides
Pure Cloud Cream is the newest addition to my skincare routine. The use of the word routine is a bit improper because I don’t have a set of products that i use every morning and every evening. I tend to go with what my skin needs that day.
Is the end of November, I would say the winter is coming but… i don’t know how is where you live, here the winter has arrived. Is dark, is gray, is cold and the icy winds are killing my skin. Even an office hermit as myself has a dog that has to be walked twice a day and a ton of errands to run. Otherwise, I would stay indoors till spring lol!
But is the cold that helped me fall in love with the Pure Cloud Cream. I smooth a generous layer of this moisturizer on my face and neck ( yes I’m in the “take it to the tits” team, thanks Caroline ) every morning, leave it for a minute or two wipe the excess and carry on with SPF and makeup, and this helps me to protect my skin from the harsh Dutch winds.
Indeed as the name says, is soft as a cloud, it’s light and feels great on my dry skin. Sometimes I use this as a night cream when I need extra hydration, but I don’t want anything heavy.
I would recommend pure cloud cream to anyone who suffers from dryness or need some extra moisture during the winter! life savior
Glacial Face Wash with White Willow Bark
If you know me, you know that I run away from foamy cleansers as hard as I can, but I’m quite digging this one
I have dry skin and foamy equals drying for me. And it kinda is if I’m using it too often, yet it made it on my top six, why would you ask …. because I see the changes in my husband skin. We have a full size in the bathroom, which he took over I use it now and then as a second cleanser. I’m happy he did take over because it cleaned his dry buy congested complexion, and I have a travel size in my gym bag which I use it after a workout, about twice a week. My husband is not into skincare I consider he using Skyn ICELAND a miracle!
I do enjoy its light, fresh smell the texture, the packaging is straightforward and minimalist, it feels cooling on the skin, leaves face clean and so smooth, and I would definitely recommend this product!
Fresh Start Mask with Ice Age Mud
Spoiler alert ..stop Here and Just BUY IT ALREADY!
Fresh Start Mask was the first product I tried from Skyn ICELAND, and I am in LOVE with this dual phase face mask! I’m on my third box and I’m not going to quit anytime soon.
It has omega fatty acids, vitamins, and potent antioxidants, ice age black mud which makes this mask high in minerals, humic acids, and lipids. It is highly oxygenating and increases cell turnover to leave skin feeling smooth and soft, it has Icelandic blue clay that draws impurities from the skin while gently exfoliating, a blend of acids AHA’s, glycolic, lactic, citric, malic and tartaric that exfoliates and oxygenates the skin to increase hydration, boost elasticity and stimulates collagen synthesis.
Fresh Start Mask is a dual phase the blue clay and the activating gel, first, you spread an even layer of clay on a dry clean face followed by an equal amount of activating gel. Massage to activate the ingredients and leave it on for five to ten minutes.
It feels so luxurious on the skin, especially when both parts are applied and it begins to effervesce and has a slight warming and tingling feeling to it which I find very relaxing. Afterward, my skin feels so fresh and clean, and I have a beautiful glow.
For the last four months this mask has been my holy grail mask, and any other clay mask I ever tried doesn’t live up to this one.
Glacial Spray Lotion with Anti-pollution Complex
This as the face wash falls into the category I love this because it helps my man. And somehow Skyn Iceland packaging is appealing to guys, saying that because before Skyn Iceland I had to chase him around the house to spear the tiniest bit of moisturizer and spp on him. So ladies, if your man is resistant on all your attempts to help his skin try Skyn ICELAND. But even for myself, I love this lightweight, daily hydrating no fuss lotion. It has no scent to it, is loaded with antioxidants and omega fatty acids it has a pollution-blocking polymer and…. thank you so much Skyn ICELAND… it has a pump. Also, if you like to carry some skincare with you at the gym the glacial spray lotion is perfect for in gym bag
My pump splashes a bit so be careful when you first try.
Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels with Hexapeptide Technology
I feel smart when I say hexapeptide
Puffiness was never my problem, I’m instead the raccoon girl: big dark blue circles and very thin dry skin thanks to genetics combined with 20+ years of heavy smoking (I’m smoke-free 4 years now) and a significant number of years of waking up at 4 am and starring at the screen for 10 hours. Daily. My eyes look horrible. Earlier this year I got under-eye filler because nothing ever helped me with the blue-purple hue under eyes and I never was happier in my life.
Nevertheless, that did not help with the dry creepy skin and here comes my game changer Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels! My under-eye skin never looked more plump and firm yet hydrated. If I have an event and I need to look fresh and rested .. I can always count on their eye patch mask. My concealer looks flawless afterward
On the hot days, I keep them in the fridge for a cooling effect. The only con to it is that they are a bit pricey so I don’t use them as often as I wish but once-twice a week is fine. I’m happy with them
Brightening Eye Serum with Arctic Peptides
I feel like I could talk about this serum forever and never be able to do justice to it.
I love this serum alone and in combination with the hydro-gel pads. Best combo ever for tired eyes!
A beautiful blend of fatty acids, amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and drone peptides, that’s what it is. And it works. Tightens my under-eye skin, hydrates doesn’t leave residue behind, and I never had better concealer days like when I’m using this serum, so this little beauty is here to stay.
If I’m to find a flaw to it is the fact that is 0.34 oz/10 ml only that’s a bit less than you usually get in an eye serum.
Skyn ICELAND products are cruelty-free and vegan
For my dutchies
so, babes, that was my Skyn ICELAND top picks ! have you spotted anything you like to try or maybe one of your favorites?
