Now when it comes to skincare, I’ve just gotta admit – I’m a floozy. Flitting from product to product without even a second thought for those that I’ve left behind me. I mean, if that wasn’t obvious enough around here, that is. You see, as much as I try to remain loyal to a product and as much I may well think it’s the best thing since sliced bread (at least for a time, anyway) – well, I’m forever convinced that there’s gotta be something out there that’ll be one step ahead of it. Even just by a little way. I mean, the grass is usually always greener elsewhere, right? Maybe?
And so, ever in pursuit of that next best thing, I’ve found myself trying and testing a whole lotta skincare. Trust me. In fact, I’ve swapped and changed bits about more times than I’d care to admit – so many products, so little time and all. But y’know what? Every so often, I’ll come across a brand that’s just so damn perfect that I can’t shake it off. A brand that I can wholly rely on to work it’s skin-loving wonders each and every time I call on it. A brand that just has the whole thing down.
SARAH CHAPMAN SKINESIS
And so, no matter how hard I try to top it – the SARAH CHAPMAN SKINESIS range has completely ruled the skincare roost for me just lately. But with those oh-so-luxe scents, richer than rich formulas and winning textures – it ain’t no surprise that I’m hooked on em. Who knows? Maybe I am even ready to settle down after all..
SARAH CHAPMAN SKINESIS ULTIMATE CLEANSE
Now amongst the 756 cleansers that I appear to have amassed along the way – well, it takes a helluva lot for somethin’ to really grab my attention. But you know what? The SARAH CHAPMAN SKINESIS ULTIMATE CLEANSE has well and truly earned a place right up there with the best of em. No mean feat in itself guys. In fact, it even gives the completely-coveted EMMA HARDIE CLEANSING BALM and the likes a run for their money, I reckon.
And that ain’t the kind of statement I make lightly. But, full to the brim with those vitamin and antioxidant buzzwords we know and love, along with a whole blend of omega rich oils to boot – there really ain’t much that this balm-to-milk cleanser can’t do for ya. Deliciously rich yet somehow, not overly heavy all at once. The texture? A serious winner. Two tiny pumps massaged in to the face and coupled with water, you’ll be laughing.
Not only does it feel completely heavenly massaged in to the skin (as in, spa-level heavenly); it’s fully nourishing formula works so deeply in to the skin, it’ll make light work of even the most stubborn makeup (we’re talkin’ waterproof mascara, the lot) along with any other dirt or daily grime (ew) as well. And along with leaving your complexion thoroughly cleansed and visibly brightened, it’s seriously top-notch ingredients throw a little hydration-action in to the mix as well. Plumped, smoothed, all-round perfected. And as for the scent? As luxe as it gets. But, with the fragrance itself derived from only the very best floral essential oils there is? Well, it’s no mystery really.
SARAH CHAPMAN SKINESIS EYE RECOVERY
Sure. I get the importance of a good eye cream. In fact, they’re pretty much an absolute staple in my routine. Just gotta be done, right? But y’know, unless the results I see are pretty much immediate – I’m out. Fickle? Always. Impatient? Completely. Clueless? Without a doubt. But with that in mind, it’s no surprise that my relationship with eye creams ain’t exactly been a good one over the years. Until now, that is. But you know, the SARAH CHAPMAN SKINESIS EYE RECOVERY is a product you just can’t argue with. And believe me, I’ve tried.
Hugely rich yet strangely light – this almost-serum not only works to offer the perfect overnight treatment for the ol’ eyes; it’s lightweight texture provides the most ideal base for makeup come morning too given the chance. And, I hear it’s ‘light diffusing particles’ and unique peptides fend off dark circles in no time too, as well as working wonders in reducing any puffiness if ya need it. Seriously. Hydrating, smoothing and just the right amount of moisturising – but as for long term effects? Well, the jury’s out on that I’m afraid. But I’ll let you know in 20 years, right?
SARAH CHAPMAN INTENSE HYDRATING BOOSTER
Okay. This next one is a toughie to describe so you gotta bear with me. I mean, the SARAH CHAPMAN INTENSE HYDRATING BOOSTER ain’t a cream by any stretch of the imagination. Nor is it quite in serum terrority just yet. But while it certainly isn’t any of those things – what I do know, is that it’s all kinds of awesome.
Almost water-like in texture, carrying that similar deliciously luxe scent as the rest of the range but dispersed via a tiny glass pipet (love a bit o’ gadgetry, me), this pre moisturiser serum-come-mask-kinda-thingy makes the perfect little addition to the ol’ routine. Y’know, as if it wasn’t quite long enough already. Ahem. Morning, evening, just whenever – delivering up a soothing yet silky soft finish every time, along with a serious whack of moisture to boot. And fear not, even my obscenely oily skin just laps this stuff up. No problem. HYDRALURON? Pfft. Not even close. Winter – I’m ready for ya.
SARAH CHAPMAN SKINESIS OVERNIGHT FACIAL
But in the spirit of saving only the very best til last – we’ve got the fully-hyped SARAH CHAPMAN SKINESIS OVERNIGHT FACIAL. Dare I even suggest that this might be one of my all-time favourite skincare products, ever? Yup, you heard that right. And it ain’t just me that thinks it. In fact, it’s really no wonder that it’s made it’s way to such cult status amongst beauty lovers alike.
Though with a name like that? Well I don’t know about you, but I’m sold on just that basis. And they aren’t kidding either. I mean, facial in a bottle? Uh, yes please. But, despite being crammed with more concentrated active ingredients than you could shake a stick at, it remains extremely lightweight and fully absorbs in to the skin in a matter of minutes. Applied post-cleanse, this serum-moisturiser-oil-all-rounder really is everything you could ever hope for. And then some. So much so, that it actually needs no accompaniment. And that, is my kinda product guys.
A completely lazy yet thoroughly guilt-free one stop ticket to perfected skin. Seriously smoothed, positively glowing and fully repaired. In fact, the results from this one are more than evident – even after the very first application. And not just to me either. New skin while you sleep, anyone?Oh, go on then. And if that wasn’t quite enough for me (it was) – the scent again, a dream. Naturally fragranced with an oh-so-soothing combo of jasmine, rose, frangipani and tuberose to name a few. And if that little lot doesn’t send you off – well, I don’t know what will. Go on, try it. I double dare you.
SARAH CHAPMAN SKINESIS MORNING FACIAL
And did I mention my latest addition, the newly released SARAH CHAPMAN SKINESIS MORNING FACIAL? I mean, two facials are always better than one, right? Yep, I thought so too. And with those same knock-out results and a similar to-die-for fragrance (although a lot lighter and without that whole sleep-inducing-thang goin’ on, thankfully), I’m falling for it fast. Hooker, line and sinker. But with a whole plethora of active and supercharged ingredients working to offer an intensely full-blown yet long lasting cell pick-me-up – can you really blame me?
I mean, what better way to start a day than with the plump, dewy and supple skin you’ve always dreamed of? Well, that works for me anyway guys. And that’s what I call so far, so good. Could I use it every day? Nope, not a chance. But warmed between my palms and applied twice a week or so to perk up the ol’ complexion – I’ve got to admit, my skin really hasn’t looked back. Sure. It might be an oil, but there’s certainly nothing oily to worry about this one. And with my grease face talkin’, it’s just gotta be a good un.
Everything is opulent, but it’s all justified (in my opinion though, obvs). But, if I had to pick a favorite, what would it be? You’ve got to be kidding me, right?
What are your thoughts? Have you tried anything by Sarah Chapman?
