I recently got the chance to try a couple of products from ARK Skincare: their Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer and their Skin Perfector Triple Action Exfoliator. ARK Skincare is a British brand that uses natural ingredients and aims to give you professional, salon-quality results at home. Their skincare “system” is pretty easy to figure out- they have different lines based on age and what your skin needs during that time period. For example, the Age Protect line for teens and people in their twenties focuses on protecting against daily pollutants while the Age Defy line for 50 and up uses collagen-boosting and skin-brightening ingredients. It seems like a pretty simple way to choose your skincare products.
The Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer uses Omega 3s along with Vitamin A, shea butter and olive oil to moisturize skin and help smooth out wrinkles and prevent aging. I really liked the packaging of this moisturizer. You push the top down to dispense the product so it’s super hygienic and easy to control the amount you get. This moisturizer worked really well for me. It’s a thicker moisturizer that I think will be especially nice during the winter or if you have dry skin. It has a pretty strong “plant” smell but it didn’t last very long.
I also got to try the Skin Perfector Triple Action Exfoliator, an exfoliating mask that works for all ages. This uses physical, fruit acid, and enzymatic actions to exfoliate and smooth the skin. This exfoliator was really thick and felt like a balm. I actually hated how it felt on my skin. It was very mask-like and the texture made it impossible to rinse off without scrubbing my face with a washcloth. Still, this made my skin feel so nice that it’s worth the extra effort. My skin was super smooth and soft and it looked brighter and more plump. I really liked the effects I got from this exfoliator.
I was really happy with both products that I got to try from ARK Skincare. The Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer is the perfect pick-me-up when my skin needs some extra moisturizer and I really like the anti-aging properties. As much as I do not like the feel of the Skin Perfector Triple Action Exfoliator, it worked really well (better than most exfoliators I’ve tried) and I loved how my skin felt after. If you’re looking to try some new skincare or if you need an idea of where to begin with your skincare regimen, ARK Skincare is definitely the place to start.
I received these products for free in exchange for my honest review.
