Skinfood Launches Fresh New Skincare

Over the last few weeks I have been putting a new skincare brand from New Zealand that is now available in the UK to the test, it is a natural & green product which is also unisex, the products are also all free from & free from artificial colours, perfumes or paraben preservatives making them suitable for sensitive skins too.

All the products are enriched with pure ingrediants from New Zealand such as Manuka Honey to soothe & heal, Avocodo Oil which is a rich antioxidant, Aloe Vera to hydrate, Organge Oil to rejuvenate & revitialise & Lavender to balance the complexion & stimulate regeneration, they are also formulated Coconut Palm that is rich in Vitamins A & E to give excellent protection & nourishment to the skin.
The full range includes an Exfoliator to a Cleanser, Mud Mask & three fantastic Moisturisers as well as Shave Gel too.

Firstly the 'Cleans All' is a light gentle wash for the skin which is tough on make-up at the same time (!!), just wet your face & apply a little cleanser & massage into the skin then wash off with warm water, it is also gentle enough to use as an eye make-up remover too, I found that only one wash was required to remove my make-up & then a little on some cotton wool to remove any eye make-up, my skin felt really soft afterwards unlike other face washes that can leave your skin feeling tight or dry. Their 'Exfoliating Scrub' is used once a week to gently polish the skin & brighten the complexion by removing dead skin cells, it also contains Tea Tree to heal as well & as with the cleanser it doesn't leave the skin feeling dry but instantly softer instead.
The 'Light Moistuiser' is probably best suited to those with an oily skin, non-greasy it absorbs instantly into the skin without leaving any residue, it also leaves a light matt finish on the skin & is great for men who don't want a heavy perfumed moisturiser but for us girls it is great for using as a base to make-up! Another light moistuiser is the SPF15 Moisturiser which protects the skin against sun damage obviously so helps promote a youthful complexion & with SPF being the only proven anti-ageing ingrediant it's as good as any anti-ageing cream! The Nourishing Moisturiser is great for those with dry skins but I found it works really well as a night cream, it is very think in consistancy & creates a barrier to lock in moisture, the avocado & sunflower oils help repair the skin while you sleep & balance the complexion. The 'Mud Mask' is a great weekly treat for the skin & is made with New Zealand's famous mud from Rotura (known worldwide for it's amazing healing qualities), only left on for 10mins it draws out impurities in the skin leaving it cleansed & feeling soft as well as reducing pore size - even only after one use! Finally is the 'Shave Gel', again a unisex product, it protects & heals the skin to counteract the drying effects of shaving, I found my legs felt great afterwards as the skin can feel pretty dry & sore afterwards at times meaning I have to apply a lot of lotion, but no need this time!
All in all this is an excellent range that is natural & great for all skin types, it's also inexpensive, each item costing only £4.99, available nationwide at Tesco, Morrisons, Waitrose & Online at Amazon.
