Edelweiss 'Milky Cleanser' and '24 H Essence Cream'

I was recently lucky enough to be selected as one of just 75 bloggers to trial a limited edition skincare set by Edelweiss' from Siin Life. The set which was wrapped so beautifully that I didn't want to take it out of the box includes two products which are a 30ml tube of a 'Milky Cleanser' and a '24 H Essence Cream'. 

Before this set had arrived Edelweiss and Siin Life are two brands I had never heard of or come across.  Originating in Austria their products are now available in the UK which you can see HERE.  The first thing I noticed about the brand is that they are paraben and paraffin free and are not tested on animals, more about the brand can be read on their site.

For me the first thing I loved about this set is how I felt when it was opened. The bright royal purple packaging inside the box really caught my attention and then there is the actual packaging itself, quite simple and subtle in design but it does look sleek.  Opening the box is also an experience in itself because it slides open to reveal the two products inside and again their packaging replicate that of the box, sleek, simple and subtle. 

The one thing that did grab my immediate attention was "The Eternal Beauty" which you can clearly see on the wrap around and the words "The Austrian Innovation against all kinds of wrinkles".

I have been using both of these products since I got them and the first thing I can say about them is that they are very much a luxury product, almost like a spa treatment at home and given how stunning everything had been, I wasn't surprised.

The Milky Cleanser is what I would describe as being a clear gel when first applied to the skin and then as you begin to massage it onto your face it becomes 'milky'.  The scent is totally amazing, I liked it from the first try and again exactly the kind of scent that I would associate with a spa, that fresh clean scent.

"The siin active ingredients relax stressed skin and let it breathe in the truest sense of the word"

It claims to give a Deep cleansing for regeneration of your skin which is rich in nutrients and contains some of the following:
  • Energised Spring Water from the Alps
  • Exclusive Edelweiss Extract
  • Goji-berry with Vitamin C, A (retinol) and Vitamin B
  • Ginseng Root Extract
Once on the skin there is an immediate soothing feeling and whenever I do use a product like this, I always leave it on the skin for a few minutes to allow it to sink into the skin and work its magic and with this cream it didn't take long at all.

The 24H Essence Cream which has an SPF15 is quite different from other moisture products I've used.  It is referred too as a 2 in 1 product and is said to combines the properties of a day and night cream in one single product and gives 24-hour all-round protection of your skin for your face, your neck and your décolleté.

"This intensely moisturising day and night cream helps to neautralise free radicals, protects your skin and ensures a silky smooth complexion"

As with the Milky Cleanser, this product also contains:

  • Energised Spring Water from the Alps
  • Exclusive Edelweiss Extract
  • Aloe Vera and Olive Tree Leave Extract
  • Goji-berry
  • Wheat Germ Extract and Jojoba Oil
When the cream first comes out of the tube, it is released really slowly and I found I needed to squeeze a little harder than I would usually for it to be released, so I had expected it to be quite a thick consistency but it wasn't at all, the cream itself is quite light and once on the skin it took a bit of massaging to absorb into the surface and once on the skin there is another wonderful scent left behind as well as leaving my skin feeling very soft and smooth to the touch.

I have really enjoyed using these products and they are most definitely very luxurious and such a nice treat to have had.  The little kit I have costs just over £50 for these two tubes in the wonderful packaging and I think would make a fantastic gift for someone who enjoys a little bit of luxury or needs a bit of extra TLC because I would be more than happy to use them again.
