Gotta Love It!

U Skin Solutions

This week has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride. Bub is has 3 teeth coming through all at once so we are living on about five hours sleep at night, if we are lucky we may get a quick nap in the afternoon. So I have had days of feeling utterly dysfunctional, eyes bleary, sunk into the back of my head and my brain feels fuzzy all over. I have also had better days, like today, I can type a full sentence without falling asleep. Yahoo! - not the search engine.

Consequently my skin has taken a bit of a battering. It seems too have formed its own brain and is saying to itself, "I'm gonna make some redness on the cheeks, some blemishes on the chin and a bit of extra oil here and there." I suppose it doesn't help that to keep my energy levels high enough to see through the day I am snacking on ANYTHING sugary. BIG no no! Even my beloved Angels on Bare Skin by Lush cant seem to keep up with my problem skin and I am finding it too oily at the moment.
 When U Skin Solutions* arrived at my door I wondered if these skincare products could solve my skin woes. Now, I am going to be a very honest and forthright reviewer because I am tired and when I am tired the true Choleric side of me emerges in full force. However I am glad to say that I really really like this line, and I can't seem to find a fault with it.

U Skin Solutions has such elegant packaging.

The Nourishing Cleansing Milk is just so so light. I am always a bit weary of cleansing milks and lotions, if my skin is already greasy I find they grease it up even more. But this cleanser is a stressed skins best friend. I really feel like it has relaxing properties and even thought there is a bit of oil in this formula such as Avocado, Macadamia and Jojoba oils, I truly feel they are purely moisturising and nothing else. No excess grease or film is left on my skin and It leaves my face feeling really soft and supple. I have also noticed after a week of using this cleanser that the redness around my nose and cheeks has really improved and isn't inflamed anymore.

I'm a bit disappointed that the label on the Bamboo and Kakadu Plum Refining Face Polish says to use this only twice a week because I COULD USE THIS EVERYDAY. Five stars just for the feisty, zesty smell of this baby! I remember during the week I was having a really bad day with bub and I hopped in the shower to use this and WOW! I felt ten times better with the scent of Lavender oil, Lemon Myrtel oil and Tea tree oil wafting up my nose. This scrub smells happy and is really gentle without being clumpy or harsh. After using this scrub my skin felt really soft and very clean and the lotion is really easy to wash off and there are no tiny little fragments left on the skin. Unfortunately I have to wait another two days to use this again. I am counting down the hours.

Ahh Tub moisturisers, I almost immediately think of really heavy night creams when I see a moisturiser in a tub. I am prejudice... a little. But U Skin Solutions have done it again. On first inspection the Moisturising Day Cream looked a bit thick and rich for my problem skin but I gave it a go anyway. Oh how wrong I was. When I blended this moisturiser into my skin I immediately noticed how light and creamy it was. It didn't take any time to soak into my skin and now my skin seems to have bounced back from it's days of looking stressed. I don't get oily in the T-zone at the end of the day either. No skincare line has ever done that for me. 

This is such an amazing, cruelty free skincare line and I would recommend it to everyone, just to have a go. After finding U Skin Solutions I have become very passionate about it. It is affordable for the quality and if you look at the website HERE there are some great starter packs to try out. I love love it!

Have Fun!
