The best part about my experience at the skyn ICELAND beauty & fashion blogger event at Henri Bendel New York a couple weeks ago, was not just meeting new & inspiring people, but being introduced to an AMAZING skincare line that I am now fully addicted to. For two weeks, these products have successfully traveled with me everywhere (and that means a lot, considering I moved out of my apartment this weekend) and have been living out of a suitcase the past week. They say that the two most stressful things in life are moving and starting a new job. Under normal circumstances, the stress of moving would have left my skin completely broken out, dry and pretty much unpredictable. BUT thanks to the skyn ICELAND products I received at the blogger event to product test, my skin has proven to be nothing short of incredible – It is clear, radiant, hydrated and stress-free! I couldn’t be happier with how my skin looks lately and I attribute this confidence booster to skyn ICELAND 🙂
I was a lucky little nugget to have the opportunity to test out skyn ICELAND’s star product, Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels, while at the blogger event. A photographer there snapped a quick pic as I was taking the skyn stress test and de-stressing with my eye gels on!
What I LOVE MOST about these eye gels is that they make my under eye area visibly brighter, lighter and tighten up the appearance of my skin. Signs of stress are seen greatest around the delicate eye area, which means it’s imperative that we pay special attention to this part of our face. As you know, I do believe in aging gracefully & this product is just another step toward preventing pre-mature signs of aging. Bye, bye fine lines and wrinkles! The recommended usage of this product is 1 x per week – it’s never been easier or more convenient to awaken your eyes! After keeping these babies on for approximately 10-15 minutes, you’ll feel the gel patch infusing a pleasant cooling sensation to the under eye area which means that the active ingredients are totally working! You can pick up a pack of 8 for $30 USD on http://www.skyniceland.com/.
OK, time for my absolute favorite product from the line – skyn ICELAND Glacial Cleansing Cloths! Ms. Sarah Kugelman (Founder & President of skyn ICELAND) wasn’t kidding when she came up to me at the blogger event to let me know just how amazing these cleansing cloths are. Not that I didn’t believe her, but I didn’t realize the extent to which I would rely on this product for my clear skin transformation! It comes in a travel-friendly, on-the-go, re-sealable pack of 30 single-use cloths. All you need to do is remove one from the pouch, rub it together until you see a bit of lather / bubbles form on the cloth and then wipe! The BEST part is that there is no need to wash your face with water afterwards – just wipe and let air dry. Perfection 🙂 My makeup is completely removed and there is no residue or stickiness left on my skin, as you might expect from a product that does not require rinsing after use. The skin revealed underneath literally glows! To top it all off, the cloths contain a beautiful, light scent as a result of the active, powerful ingredients (cucumber and cornflower extract, indigenous Arctic berries, butterfly bush and thyme extracts – to name a few!). I will most definitely be ordering this product on http://www.skyniceland.com/ for $15 USD to replenish my stock – I’m almost out!
After cleansing, I enjoy using skyn ICELAND Arctic Face Mist with Multivitamin Complex. I just spritz a little mist over the face to pre-hydrate and pre-protect the skin prior to moisturizing. This product helps to blast the skin’s surface with a cool burst of natural mineral water, infused with MANY vitamins (A for anti-aging, B for brightening, C for inflammation reduction and E for antioxidant protection from stress). It dissolves instantly and helps to ‘lock in’ nutrients deep into the skin. It’s an extra added beneficial step that is WELL worth the effort & cost – also sold on http://www.skyniceland.com/ at $45 USD. After the mist fully dissolves, I rub in skyn ICELAND the ANTIDOTE Cooling Daily Lotion ($45 USD on http://www.skyniceland.com/) as my official step to hydrate, refresh & renew my skin for the day. This fabulous minty fresh, light-weight lotion soaks in effortlessly and leaves skin lingering with a cool, clean feeling. Not only does it strengthen the skin, but it protects the skin against both mental and environmental stressors – very useful when your goal is to achieve stress-free skin! I’ve noticed that my breakouts and uneven skin tone has subsided tremendously. Using the skyn ICELAND skincare product line altogether has helped me work toward a better complexion, naturally giving me more confidence to face the world! Thank you skyn ICELAND!
