Hello, class! Today I’m talking about an amazing line of products that I had the privilege of testing thanks to BrandBacker. Remember that this means I received the products for free in exchange for my honest review. The brand in question is Ark Skincare. For those unfamiliar with Ark Skincare, here is a snippet of information taken from their webpage:
Beautiful skin at every age
ARK Skincare is a British skincare brand, which treats skin by age and skin concern. Created for use in our London Spa, ARK Skincare products deliver professional, salon grade results using the most innovative natural formulations. The result is a highly effective personalized skincare regime for every individual.
Why treat skin by age?
There are two main transition periods in the aging process where there is a dramatic shift in hormone production and a significant change in the way the body functions: late 20s to early 30s and late 50s to early 60s. ARK has looked at the skin externally and internally during these periods, to create three age-specific product ranges, which support skin with the optimum level of nourishment and skin-perfecting ingredients.
I was sent two products to test out- the ARK Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer and the ARK Hydration Injection Masque.
ARK’s Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer is formulated for those in their 30’s and 40’s and is focused on retaining moisture and diminishing signs of premature aging. It is meant to be used morning and evening and comes in a really luxurious feeling container.
I am very picky about my moisturizers, especially those meant to be worn under makeup. I was surprisingly pleased with the Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer! It is thick but yet quickly absorbed and does not contribute to any oiliness throughout the day. I even used it over a rough patch on my cheek (a healing zit, if we want to get real) and it helped my makeup go on incredibly smoothly.
The Hydration Injection Masque is formulated for all ages, though it is meant to be worn for different amounts of time for each age bracket. For those in their 30’s and 40’s, the mask should be left on for about 10 minutes once or twice a week and then removed with a warm cloth. The Hydration Injection Masque contains ingredients that help soothe irritation, retain moisture and restore vibrancy.
Again, I am usually pretty skeptical of the grand claims of skin products. However, the ARK Hydration Injection Masque delivered. I am not lying when I say that the mornings after I used this mask my skin looked amazing. I felt like I looked refreshed (even when I slept poorly) and my skin felt so soft.
Both products I tried retail for $70 USD. This puts ARK Skincare in the “luxury” range. I think what makes them unique is their age-specific targeting, so if you are in the market for new skincare, I’d check out ARK.
I liked these products so much that I’m considering trying the other two skincare products in the 30’s-40’s range. So… if anyone from ARK Skincare happens to be reading this… let’s talk.
