As I’ve got older, I’ve started to become conscious of taking care of my skin and combating the effects of ageing before they truly set in. I’m a complete idiot when it comes to skincare, I literally need someone else to tell me what I need to do, so I was happy to see that B. Skincare had age specific ranges available. I am still a baby at 24 (and no one can tell me otherwise!), so I opted for the B. Skin Phase 1 Line.
My skin is combination; oily around the forehead and jawline, dry around the nose, and I do have some problems with redness and dull skin. The Superdrug website claims that this range focuses on moisturising and boosting radiance, which, aside from the oiliness (which I can live with) covers all my bases. Lets get in to the products!
This is similar to one of those blemish sticks everyone used to use in the early 2000’s, but in gel form. It’s a teeny 15ml tube, and I jut apply this to any breakout areas with a clean finger. It uses Salicylic Acid to reduce the redness, but Hyaluronic acid to prevent it from drying out the skin too much. Personally I do find it quite drying, but as most of my blemishes appear around my chin and jawline, I don’t mind that too much.
This is a bit of a strange one – it’s a moisturiser but reminds me so much of Sudocream? Probably just in looks because once you start to rub it in it is really smooth and sinks in to the skin quickly. I use this in the morning after the Blemish Gel and before the Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz, and I’ve noticed that my base makeup doesn’t cling as much to the dry skin around my nose. It has SPF 15 to prevent against those nasty UV rays, which is always an added bonus.
I love facial sprays, so when I saw this I knew I’d love it. Again, the Hyaluronic Acid is very moisturising, and the spray itself is very misty, meaning I only use one or two sprays for my whole face. I use this after moisturising and before primer to make my skin stay hydrated throughout the day.
Ok, so this is definitely my favourite thing in the whole range. This is possibly the most luxurious thing I have ever put on my face. I use this turquoise gel in the evening after cleansing, and it honesty makes my skin feel amazing. It plumps the skin, and makes me look super glowy. Containing Persian Silk Tree extract, it adds radiance to my skin and gets rid of the dullness that can occur after a full makeup day. If you buy one thing from this range, buy this.
This goes on my face last, after I’m fully cleansed and moisturised. This is just another moisturiser, but I plop this under my eyes only to act as a nighttime eye cream. It claims to moisturise for 12 hours, which I haven’t necessarily noticed, but I do see less eye baggage when I wake up after using this.
This last product in’t actually in the Phase 1 range, but rather in their “All” Phase. I also haven’t tried this yet, but it says you’re supposed to use two or three times a week, and that it’s suitable for all skin types. The glycolic acid acts as an exfoliator, and this product comes with a muslin cloth to polish the peel away, and boosts radiance t the skin. Needless to say, I am excited for this one!
