It’s one of the great ironies in my life, that I’m so passionate about skincare products, but I can’t try many as my skin reacts quickly and violently to products that aren’t right for me Okay, so violently may be something of an exaggeration but if I’m not using the right products for me then my skin either dries out horribly or breaks out horribly and if I’m especially unlucky then its a combination of both.
One brand I can always trust is Aromatherapy Associates. And I’ve been trying out the Aromatherapy Associates Instant Skin Soothing Serum* for a couple of months now and it’s time to report back.
I’ve been using the Soothing Face Oil for a long time now and I love it, it moisturises but doesn’t break me out so I was keen to give this a whirl too. Actually, if memory serves me well I have tried this product before, but it must have been a long time ago.
I’ve said before that I’ve never had a dud Aromatherapy Associates product and that still holds true, I’m aware that I sound over-enthusiastic sometimes but the products really are this good and the Instant Skin Soothing Serum is no different.
The serum contains prebiotics to maintain the skins barrier, Cotton Thistle Extract to support the natural process of skin renewal, while arnica and camomile soothe irritated skin. As with all Aromatherapy Associates products, it smells gorgeous, but what I love best of all is how well it works on my skin, whatever its condition. If I’m a bit dry, this hydrates, if I’m spotty this soothes and cools redness, helping to reduce swelling, its just a great addition to anyone’s skincare routine, whatever your issues might be.
The texture is light and traditional (in terms of serums) and skins in fast meaning you can just go ahead and apply your make up on top, but I tend to go use this under my moisturiser.
As with all Aromatherapy Associates products I find the price is higher than I think I’d like but when you try the products out, its easy to see they are extremely high quality.
This is a truly effective range of products, and if they suit your budget I would absolutely encourage you to try them out.
The Aromatherapy Associates Instant Skin Soothing Serum is £47.00 for 50ml and you can purchase it from the Aromatherapy Associates Website.
