Looking for something that will soothe your stressed skin but also serve to perk you up and wake you up for the day ahead? It’s time for you to discover the Skyn Iceland range! I have been trying out the Glacial Face Wash and the Daily Cooling Lotion and I must say – I have never felt anything quite like these two products. They have this unique cooling sensation, they feel like an ice bath for your face and work perfectly together.

About the Brand

Skyn Iceland offers skincare solutions to treat the damage caused by stress. Their inspiration comes from nature, the pure unspoiled natural resources of Iceland. All of their products are free of parabens, petroleum, mineral oil, chemical sulfates, and phthalates, along with being vegan and cruelty free!

Glacial Face Wash

Now, this is intense. It feels incredibly refreshing, it foams up nicely and the skin is left feeling super-squeaky clean and purified. You don’t need a lot either and your face will feel instantly refreshed and cleansed and calmed.

When you follow up with this lotion that effect is intensified, they work in perfect harmony together. It’s invigorating and wakes you up!

Key ingredients:

The face wash contains skyn ICELAND’s proprietary Biospheric complex of pure Icelandic glacial waters, Arctic berries and pure oxygen. It also contains Oat and amino acid-based surfactants which provide extra gentle cleansing, white willow bark to soothe  irritation, helps provide antibacterial protection and is a natural, skin-soothing analgesic Cylindrica seed oil helps hydrate skin and restore optimal moisture levels and Icelandic kelp to revitalise the skin and helps fight inflammation.

The Antidote – Cooling Daily Lotion

It’s like a cooling burst of moisture to the skin. You can really smell the mint and this is what gives it the very invigorating and cooling, icy sensation upon application, which is something they do say you’ll feel and you certainly do! When using the lotion make sure to pat it into your skin instead of the usual massage as that’ll allow it to work best. It has a gel-like consistency and sinks into the skin quickly.

It’s not something I could use every day, it’s something I pick up for a couple of days when I feel like my skin needs it. I would definitely pair this with a face oil or hydrating mist to boost hydration.

Key ingredients:

The lotion contains white willow bark, a naturally occurring form of salicylic acid, soothes irritation and helps provide antibacterial protection, a mint derivative provides cooling relief and helps improve skin’s microcirculation, meadowsweet extract which helps control oiliness, tighten pores, and clear skin, Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids help preserve skin’s natural moisture balance and yeast extract which soothes and calms inflamed skin.

Both of these products are quite intense, particularly when used together, so they’re not something I would want to use every day for a long period. I feel like it could be a little too much for my normal to dry skin, but it is perfect to use when the skin is needing a refresh and if I’m needing a wake-up call. I really like how refreshing these two products feel, but it also serves to calm the skin and cool it down.

I’m loving this brand and can’t wait to try more from them.
