Frezyderm Rosacea Review*

Happy new year! My year has started off with lovely calm skin and I think one of the reasons is the Frezyderm products I was kindly gifted by their PR team in the UK.

Frezyderm is a Greek skincare brand founded in 1986. Since 1986 Frezyderm has always strived for high quality skincare products that meet strict pharmaceutical standards, becoming dermatologists’ go-to brand across the world.

Frezyderm remains a family owned, well-renowned and trusted dermo-cosmetic brand, offering premium skincare solutions for all ages and skin types.

I have always been interested in trying their rosacea products, as I’ve seen really great reviews for them.

I was sent the Sensitive Red Facial Cream. It is a soft cream for regulating and reversing the symptoms of rosacea and sensitive intolerant skin. Directly and significantly reduces redness, spider veins, inflammation, blackheads and swelling. Enhances the skin barrier and activates the function of the skin, while providing strong hydration. The soothing action relieves and gives elasticity and skin comfort. With strong anti-acne, anti-wrinkle and antioxidant activity, it is suitable for all ages.

Sounds great! I really believe it does what it says it will. My skin was a lot calmer and my spider veins were less prominent. My mum also used it too and I thought her face looked a lot more even and smoother. So, it worked on different ages and different issues. I highly recommend it!

I was also sent the Sensitive Red Skin SPF 30 CC Cream, which is one of my new favourite products. Firstly, a little goes a long way so it is a bargain! It covers the skin nicely if you are looking for a nice light to medium coverage for daytime wear. Also, the key part is the sun protection. Those of us with rosacea know how important it is to wear SPF all year round! I can’t recommend this product enough. The colour matches a variety of paler skin tones, so that was great for me. If you wanted heavier coverage or to change the tone slightly, I think it would make a great base. One of the best rosacea products I’ve found.

Another lovely product I was sent was their Mild Wash Liquid. It offers gentle cleansing and does not cause irritation. It also strengthens the natural skin defenses, protects the skin barrier, has moisturizing and emollient properties and a cool texture that gives a sensation of wellbeing. I usually don’t use water on my face, but I did like this as a cleanser. My face felt clean but not stingy. Also, it can be used on all the body (all!), so if you have other sensitive skin issues this is a go to product for the shower!

 

I am so impressed with these products and I will certainly be buying them again and more from the range! Thank you Frezyderm!

Pure Potions Shampoo and Conditioner Review

 

A few months ago I got the chance to try some new moisturisers, and I was so impressed. They really helped soothe my rosacea and dermatitis, to the point where I don’t really suffer with them anymore.

So, I was very interested when I saw that Pure Potions had brought out a new shampoo and conditioner range.  The Natural Shampoo and Conditioner are so kind to skin that they are also suitable for those prone to allergies, eczema, itchy scalp or seborrheic dermatitis. It is free from detergents, polluting additives, synthetic preservatives and potentially-irritating petrochemicals and is instead packed with nourishing natural ingredients, including organic cold-pressed oils, herbal tinctures and essential oils.

I’ve been very conscious that my hair has become bunged up with products and often feels like it has residue in. I definitely felt like this shampoo cut through all that and my hair felt clean and light. The conditioner left my hair feeling soft, without making it smell  like chemicals.

My boyfriend also tried it to see how his psoriasis dealt with it. We were both impressed. It was non irritating and gentle on his scalp.

I definitely recommend this shampoo for anyone with sensitive skin or scalp.

A Full Body Service with Anatomicals*

I love Anatomicals. It has long been one of my favourite brands. I think the packaging is by far one of the best around, and the smell of the products is better than any other. So, I was very excited to receive a parcel from them, to whip my body into shape. I’ve been neglecting my beauty regime a bit recently, so I thought I’d give myself a full body service!

Hands and Feet

I suffer with dry skin, and the first thing to go is always my hands and feet. The hand cream has already become one of my favourite hand creams. It smells amazing and has a gorgeous texture. It also adds a lovely shine to your nails. The shea butter is deeply moisturising but not heavy.

The foot cream smells just like a spa! It feels like you’re having your own pamper session. The eucalyptus scent is invigorating and refreshing. My feet are definitely softer and less callused.

You can purchase the hand cream here and the foot cream here.

Lips and Eyes

I love these lip balms. I usually buy a stick lip balm, but these are liquid. The nice thing about them is that they are really softening but don’t like an early 2000s over glossed look. They definitely protect your lips properly from the elements and make them look plump and kissable! The spf element is definitely a winner too.

The eye gel is incredibly cooling and not heavy. Exactly what you want to waken your eyes up. It is not sticky and soaks into the skin immediately. Dark circles and lines visibly reduce using this. A little bit goes a long way! Works on my sensitive skin, so I believe it is safe to use on all skin types.

Skin, Muscles and Joints

FullSizeRender-9

So I have some areas which get particularly dry. One knuckle on my left hand seems to be a real bugger to get rid of. I like this balm, because it does seem to be keeping it a bit more in check than usual. It’s definitely less angry looking. I have been applying it around 3 times a day. I think a few more times a day and it could well be almost gone in a couple of weeks.

I get the occasional bout of muscle aching and joint pain in my knees and fingers due to hypermobility, so it’s always good to have something handy to reach for other than a load of pain meds. I like this rub because it uses arnica, which is amazing for inflammation and pain.

You can buy the both here.

Hair and Body

FullSizeRender-12

I like these because they smell lovely…obvs, and they’re really handy to take to the gym and swimming with me. I’m not often one for 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioners, but I like this one because it’s not so conditioning that it makes your hair greasy.

These come from the Jet Set Saviour Pack, which is one of my favourite weekend away kits. You can also find the lip balm and dry skin balm in this pack, which is an absolute bargain. It also includes my all time favourite body lotion.

Full Body

FullSizeRender-7

My legs have been really flakey recently, I don’t know why. I wanted to find a scrub to use in the shower that wasn’t too rough and also didn’t leave that over-the-top greasy residue on the skin or gravely bits in the bath. This is a really great scrub because of course it smells amazing (duh) but it’s a nice texture and does the job I’m looking for. My skin feels freshened up and soft after using it, but not red and scratched. Also, importantly it is microbead and paraben free. It uses walnut shell to revitalise skin.

To add the finishing touches, the Mango and Coconut Body Lotion (guess what I think about the smell of this product) is perfect. It is enriched with vitamin E, so leaves the skin silky soft and you feel like you’re on a tropical holiday using it.

You can buy the scrub here and the lotion here.

I really do love everything about this brand. It’s cruelty free, well packed, smells AMAZING, does what it says and is a great price for what you are getting.

Anatomicals is sold through ASOS, Superdrug, Ulta Beauty and…Anatomicals 😉

*Some of these products were gifted to me, but all the opinions are honest and my own.
