I have been a bit lax with my skincare (and blog posts) of late. I have to admit I’ve reached for the baby wipes more than once over the past month, and sometimes I even committed the cardinal sin of sleeping in my Saturday night make up – which is both bad for me, and my sheets.
I came across the Dr Lewinn’s range some time ago, and was blown away by the super effective cleanser, which showed just how dirty London is when I tried it on the back of my ‘clean’ hand…the hand sanitizer has been out in force ever since!
I went for the skincare programme for age 20+, which comprises of the Gentle Facial Cleanser, the Refining Toner, and the Instant Beauty Radiance Booster.
The cleanser is amazing, and I’m not often passionate about cleansers. It is the only one I have ever used that removes every trace of make-up and dirt without drying out the skin in the slightest. It’s rich in Aloe Vera, as well as sesame, apricot and avocado oil, and is also high in Vitamin A, which is great for rejuvenating tired skin. To get the most out of this product, apply in circular motions to your face and neck, and remove with damp cotton wool. Keep going till the cotton comes away from the face clean, which will take longer than you think.
Follow with the Refining Toner, which again is rich in Aloe Vera, and alcohol free, so it doesn’t feel like you’re using vodka to tone. The Instant Beauty (which could be mistaken for Clarins Beauty Flash Balm) can be used alone, or you can mix with your regular moisturiser for an extra hydrating boost. You can also use this as a base for make-up, or mix with your regular foundation for a lighter, daytime look.
This is the first range that I have been properly passionate about for a while, and I would wholly recommend it to anybody. My skin has never felt so clean, and even after a very heavy weekend, it seems to have a healthy, dewy glow. Prices start at £19.95 for the cleansers and toners, and £26 for the instant beauty. If you’re strapped for cash, buy the cleanser, it alone will make a difference to your beauty regime.
