For someone whose skin is more sensitive than her feelings, I find it difficult to buy products that don’t break me out or give me a reaction. I also have oily/combination skin alongside the sensitivity.. my skin was not set out to be manageable.
Anyway, I’ve been looking for products recently that shall we say ‘suit’ my skin. One way I’ve been doing this is buying a Birchbox, If you don’t know what a Birchbox is, It’s a subscription box with samples of skincare, haircare, makeup and that sort of thing in. I’ll link an unboxing Birchbox post Here. So I was scrolling through Birchbox after a cleanser and I found a kit type thing which is called ‘Stop being so sensitive’.
The kit itself
So the kit itself seems quite good. I didn’t realise how small the products were going to be but hey I paid £15 for all of it so there’s no problem there. In the kit, you get the Evercalm gentle cleansing milk (size- 50ml), The Evercalm anti-redness serum (size 10ml) and the Evercalm global protection day cream (size- 15ml).
The Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk.
This is a really nice cleanser. I really like the consistency of this, I also like how you only really need to use a tiny bit. My skin felt really fresh after using this and it wasn’t in the slightest irritated which is great. Although this is kind of a sample size I do think you get a reasonable amount and I’d be up for repurchasing this when it’s gone.
The Evercalm Anti-Redness Serum
Okay, I’ll be honest I’m not sure on this one. This made my face feel super tight, I’m not sure if that’s what this is supposed to do but it did feel uncomfortable. I did feel as though my face looked better after using this, not as red and it looked just a bit healthier in general. However, because of the tightness, I’m unsure on if I’d repurchase this.
The Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream
I do like this one if I’m honest. I love how hydrated and almost calmed my face feels after using this. You only do need a little bit and It goes a long way. I use this on its own before I go work in the mornings as I work around food I’m not allowed makeup which is good as it gives my skin chance to breathe and I’m just really enjoying using this. I think I would buy this one again.
Overall I mean there’s a lot of factors that contribute towards bad skin such as diet, health etc but I feel as though getting the right products to manage it is one step forward for me. My goal for the next few months is to possibly work out a good diet that contributes towards my skin rather than breaking me out!.
