It’s a capsule collection of cleansers, moisturisers and a treatment serum, with different ranges targeted for different skin needs. They’ve carried through their brand philosophy of promoting skin health, good ingredients and helping women to feel beautiful into the skincare range, with a clear focus on healthy, glowing skin.
The Skinlongevity Vital Infusion is the hero product from the range and one that can really be used by any age or any skin type. It features a key ingredient called ‘Long Life Herb’, which comes from the Japanese Island of Okinawa. The women of Okinawa live longer than anywhere else in the world and it’s something they put down to their daily intake of the ‘Long Life Herb’. The potent extract from the herb has been used in the Skinlongevity Vital Infusion to help add vitality and radiance to the skin and after using it for a few weeks, I’ve been really impressed with the overall effect on my skin. It has much higher mineral and vitamin content than superfoods like kale and spinach, so you can see why the ladies of Okinawa love it so much!
Another favourite of mine from the range is the Total Cleansing Oil. This is a really lovely, soothing oil-based cleanser that removes all traces of makeup without stripping the skin. It’s packed full of bilberry, borage and cucumber oils (who knew that cucumber had an oil?!) and has a very gentle herbal scent to it. I tend to use it at night to get rid of the dirt of the day and then layer up the Skin Longevity Vital Infusion serum and whatever face oil I’m using on top.
The Clay Chameleon cleanser is also an interesting one. It changes from a clay to a cream consistency when mixed with a little water and really helps to draw out any impurities in the skin for a super deep cleanse. As my skin isn’t overly oily, I’ve been using it a couple of times a week for a deep cleansing treatment which has worked really well for me, but you could easily use it more often if you suffer from a more congested complexion.
There are four different moisturisers in the range, each with a different texture and consistency that are targeted at different skin types. True Oasis is the lightest in texture and is an oil-free moisturiser best for oily/combination skins, whereas Butter Drench is the richest and works best for very dry skins. I fall somewhere in the middle so have been using Bare Haven for when my skin is a bit dehydrated or verging on the drier side, but will switch up to Smart Combination in the summer as it’s a bit lighter in texture and hydration.
Products start from £17 and go up to £45 for the Skinlongevity serum. You can find the range exclusively at Debenhams at the moment, both online and in store.
