This winter, with a not so winter climate at times and with a very cold climate other times is driving my skin crazy. I can have both super oily skin and later super dry skin. The islander struggle!
Two weeks ago approximately I received this beautiful kit with a toner and two moisturizers from The Face Shop. I thought I could review this kit and hopefully try to help my skin’s dry condition. After neglecting my skin for a while, this kit was about to face a real challenge.
About the DR Belmeur Kit
The Daily Repair Toner is a mild toner that claims to calm skin and boost moisture while the Daily Repair Moisturizer claims to be a low-irritant moisturizer that calms sensitive skin and protects skin damaged by the external environment. The Daily Repair Ato Salt Cream, the last product of this kit is supposed to provide deep moisturization and itch relief for dry skin.
First I washed my face with a cleanser and scrub with some salt, honey and lime juice to be sure to get rid of these small and unaesthetic flakes on my face.
I applied the toner with my hands, it was the first time that I used a toner in my life and I didn’t think that such a liquid product would absorb that fast, but it did. First good point I already felt moisturized but not super moisturized, only moisturized and comfortable.
Next was the first moisturizer, the Daily Repair, and I used a pea sized amount all over my face and I could feel my whole face completely rejuvenated. It felt good, really good!
In general, I would not layer two moisturizers but this time I tried the second moisturizer the Ato Salt Cream right after. I was a bit scared as I have sensitive skin and over moisturizing my skin can make it react badly but guess what?? It didn’t this time. I woke up and my skin felt amazing, luminous, clear, and moisturized skin. I wish I could naturally have such a glowy and healthy skin.
As I said I have sensitive skin and my skin can react badly if I over apply moisturizer and I don’t think it was the product but my skin and my bad decisions. I didn’t moisturize the whole day but did the whole thing (toner + 2 moisturizers) again before sleep and then I could already feel that my skin didn’t need it. Waking up my skin was oily and I understood that this is not something you should do every day. I would advise this rescue kit only once a week to really bring back to life your dry skin.
On the whole I think these are amazing products and I keep on using them. To be honest I am a huge fan of coconut oil as a moisturizer, but I can’t use it when I have to go out because of the sun, and the Ato Salt Cream has become my new moisturizer for these days out.
