ARK Skincare Review

Hey everyone! How has your week been going? Mine has been crazy! On Monday I was at school for a good chunk of the morning/afternoon getting my classroom set up. Then on Tuesday I went to Kleinfeld to look at wedding dresses. I could probably write an entire blog post on that experience alone. To be honest I really just wasn't wowed by it, but I'm still glad I went. Yesterday my mom and I went to three (yes, three in one day) bridal shops and I may have actually found the dress! It was the very last dress of the day that I tried on and I can't get it out of my head. The store only sells sample dresses, so I have to let them know soon if I want it because they don't put anything on hold and anyone could just walk in there now and buy it! Ugh. I hate being indecisive.

Today's post is about skincare. My cuticles are still kind of jacked up from organizing my classroom, so I've just been trying to keep them hydrated before painting my nails again.

I recently had the opportunity to check out a couple of ARK Skincare products that were sent to me courtesy of BrandBacker. I actually had never heard of the brand and was excited to learn that the products are made in Britain. ARK Skincare treats skin by age and skin concern, which results in a personalized skin treatment regime that caters to the individual.

Loving the packaging on these.

During the aging process there are two main transition periods where hormone production shifts and the body functions differently. These periods are late 20s to early 30s and late 50s to early 60s. ARK has studied the skin during these periods in order to create three age-specific product ranges. Finally, products I know will work with my skin!

I received one product from the the ageprotect line for teens & 20s. During this period, our skin is at its peak but it's important to prepare for the aging process by maximizing the quality of the skin and protecting against daily pollutants. I also received a product from the skinessential line, which are meant to enhance and complement your age-specific formulas.

ARK skinessential pro remove pre cleanse - The multi-fruit lipid blend dissolves every last trace of make-up, daily debris, and excess sebum. It prepares the skin for deeper cleansing for perfectly flawless complexion. Skin is left feeling soft, plump, and clean.

The verdict: I found this cleanser to be a great first step in my routine. It easily dissolved makeup and didn't leave much behind. No raccoon eyes! I will say that the scent in this and the moisturizer was a little on the strong side, so be aware of that if you have issues with fragrance.

ARK ageprotect skin vitality moisturizer - Antioxidant moisturizer, rich in Oleic Acid from Avocado and Peach lipids, balances moisture levels in the skin, for a clear, radiant complexion. Contains White Tea and Vitamin E which protect and strengthen the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of sun damage and blemishes.

The verdict: First of all, the packaging for this product is genius. You press down on the top and the perfect amount comes out of the hole in the center. No more going overboard on the moisturizer, which also means you get more bang for your buck. This moisturizer was a light and hydrating end to my skincare routine. It absorbed quickly, so I wasn't left looking greasy. Again, the fragrance was a little strong for me, but I think others would really enjoy it.
