Skincere Skincare

I'm seriously all about skincare. I know make up is more exciting and you can do more with it - but the fact is, skincare is just my jam; I love taking my foundation off and doing all the steps at night, I like it when I get to wash my face and feel fresh again in the morning - basically, I love skincare; but I also love everything to look matchy matchy, and that's where skincere comes in. Not only is Skincere beautifully matching and aesthetically appealing; but, honestly, they really do seem to be able to hold their own - or so I've found whilst testing them out.

Skincere are supporting us with #NWmeet and so when they offered to send us a bundle of goodies to try beforehand, Katy and I graciously accepted and then, as per usual, promptly forgot that we'd agreed and were suitably confused when these turned up seemingly out of the blue (although actually not out of the blue at all.) This is a beautiful set though - at the moment Skincere do a cleanser, a facial serum, an eye serum, a day cream and a night cream; however I think given it's positive reviews, it's only a matter of time before the company branch out into more. This is actually great for Katy and I as it is really formulated for sensitive skin without feeling as though it is and so both of us have managed to get along with it with next to no issues. All of the products come with a pump top bottle too, and I don't know why this pleases me so much, but it does.

The cream cleanser is easily the secret weapon that this brand holds - it melts make up easily, you need next to none of it and it leaves your skin feeling so soft without smelling like chemicals (seriously, it smells so fresh). Most of the products are good, but this is in a completely different league - it's a little more expensive at £14.99, but if you're going to pay a few extra quid on any cleanser; I'd say this could be your ideal one. As for the day and night creams - my major niggle is that both bottles look exactly the same; I'm sure if you don't wear glasses that you have to take off to put skincare on this wouldn't be an issue, but it means I have to check with Katy that I've picked the right one up. Mainly just annoying, but still something worth pointing out.

In terms of consistency, these are fairly similar with the night cream only slightly thicker without sitting on top of the skin. Both creams absorb well and smell the same as the cream cleanser and honestly, they're fine. For someone with skin that doesn't really react to anything much at all, I have to say that I probably wouldn't pay the £18.74 that each of these will knock you back - however, for someone like Katy who would really benefit from the ingredients (or lack of bad ingredients) I would say this is almost definitely worth the money.

The serums have me divided - the facial serum is amazing; it goes tacky, it sinks in and makes me feel like it's doing something to my skin and, honestly, I'd happily pay the £14.99 for it. However, for me, the eye serum is a bit of a dud product - I find that it balls and clumps under my eyes and just all in all if there's one product from the range I'd give a wide berth it's this, especially as it will set you back £11.24.

All in all, I think Skincere have really hit on something good and, reading through other people's posts, it seems as though I'm not the only one that thinks so. They've found a firm foothold in the market and I can't wait to see where it takes them. P.s. If you're coming to #NWmeet you'll get the chance to get your hands on a set and test them out for yourself!
