You may not yet have heard of Face the World, but I’m guessing it won’t be too long before you starting hearing more about this brand.
Face the World (FTW) are a new facial care company who have developed a line of products and facial treatments. All of the products took over four years to develop and were extensively tested on all skin types and are completely cruelty free.
The overnight Skin-Booster Serum was previously given to clients, in sachet form after having a FTW facial, but due to popular demand, it has now been released as a stand alone product.
So what we’ve got is a very pretty little tube of opalescent serum. It’s so pretty. I tried really hard to capture how this looks, but I totally failed, you might be able to see the opalescence if you look really closely!
Okay, so what we have are some beautiful ingredients, Rosehip Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Wheatgerm Oil, Wheat Seed Extract, FTW Ceramide Technology Blend (essentially the emollient that acts as the carrier), Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Meadowfoam Oil and Shea Butter.
This is a tricky one for me to review so I’m going to start off with my first and only negative about this product. It contains silicones. I seem to react to some products with silicones in and not others, I have not yet discovered if it’s one type of silicone that I have a problem with or if its silicones in general. Now my skin has, spot wise, been marginally worse since I’ve been using this…BUT my skin does seem to be getting worse as I get older and if I was reacting to this I’d expect to have much worse skin, not just marginally worse skin. All I can say is that if you do know you don’t get on with silicones, then this probably isn’t for you.
Moving on, firstly, this has the scent of Stargazer Lily, it is beyond beautiful. I love that smell so much. Secondly, this feels beautiful to apply, it has that very distinctive feeling of a product that contains silicones, that’s not a negative, unless you don’t like skin that feels like velvet that is! The third and final thing and that is that if I apply this at bedtime, when I wake up in the morning, my skin is soft, plump and looks great (spots aside).
So this is a bit of a mixed review but I can sum it up and say that if you don’t have a problem with silicones, this does wonders for your skin, smells gorgeous and makes you look refreshed in the morning. It’s good stuff.
You can buy this here, for £40.
