Ark Skincare Pre Cleanse & Make-Up Remover

For me, 2017 has been quite the year for discovering new brands, some of which I am bringing with me into 2018 on this blog.  The one I have to share today is from a brand called Ark Skincare.  Ark is an award winning, British skincare brand, which treats skin by age and by skin concern, using bio active natural ingredients, containing highly effective antioxidants, lipids and vitamins. Split into three key age specific ranges they have Protect for teens & 20s, Defend for 30s & 40s, & Defy for those over 50.   I love that you can shop by age or by concern and from which, you will be given a whole range of products to choose from with descriptions and information on what it does, how to use it and most importantly the ingredients it has within it.

The one product I have just finishing using up is the Pre Cleanse and Make-Up Remover (£30) which is formulated for all ages and is described as being a revolution in skin cleansing. I always ensure that I double cleanse every day. Living in London, a city which is over polluted means my skin can change from week to week and I do change my skincare up and down as I feel I need to, but double cleansing is always a must because there is nothing quite like taking the day off your face.

This cleanser combines Omegas 3, 6 and 9 alongside a Multi-Fruit Lipid blend which lifts literally everything off your face, even that waterproof mascara that is a complete pain to remove and with it comes all the surface dirt and grime which has deposited itself on your skin throughout the day. It always amazes me just how much 'muck' comes off my face, even though my journey too and from work on average is less than an hour! So for me, a pre-cleanse before I cleanse is essential because I want that nastiness off my face to then allow my cleanser to work its magic.

Using a combination of Grape Seed Oil with Avocado and Kiwi Oil which work to nourish and protect against dryness, Margosa Leaf which extracts and destroys bacteria growth alongside the herbal benefits of Zi Cao, an Ayurvedic herb which soothes and comforts sensitive skin.  Combining all of these ingredients together and you have a cleanser which, thanks to its oily texture, grabs hold of everything and removes it so effectively and it leaves your skin feeling absolutely clean, soft and smooth ready for the following cleanse.  To use it, I simply ensure my face is damp and then pouring just a small amount into the palm of one hand, I massage it onto my face using circular movements to ensure that the gunk knows I am coming for it, then once I have finished the massaging, I use a muslin cloth to remove everything that has come loose, look in shock and horror at what has been found, then splash my face with warm water to ensure I have removed absolutely everything I possibly can and then do my second cleanse.

I had no idea what to expect from ARK, I hadn't read any reviews about any of the products or even see this particular one featured anywhere, so it was a nice surprise to find a product which does exactly what it claims it is going to do, is kind to my skin and feel like an absolute treat to use each time I used it.  It does retail for £30 and all of the products available from ARK Skincare are cruelty free and are also free from Parabens, SLS, mineral oil, S.D. Alcohol, Formaldehyde, and Artificial Colours and Fragrance.

Have you ever tried any of ARK skincare products?
