Ark | Age Aware Skincare | Review*


 First of all, how pretty do these look? I am a huge sucker for packaging and the bag done it for me until i opened it up to see these mega cute travel size samples.

Ark contacted me asking if i would want to try their brand and obvs i was gonna say yes because i LOVE trying new things especially when it comes to skincare products! When i clicked on their website and seen the word age, i actually laughed and thought they were trying to tell me something. I know i'm not getting any younger but howay i am only 22 turning 23 for goodness sake. Anyway as i read on i wasn't so concerned as it's just preparing for age instead of trying to get rid of it.

Ark is a brand that focus on the skins age and not skin type. So i would fall into the skin prepare category and there is three categories. 
Teens to early 30's - Age Prepare
Mid 30's - 50's - Age Maintain
50 + - Age Repair

By separating the skin into categories they can work out how your skin is at your current age and what can help it by adding particular ingredients. 

ARK Age Aware Skincare is prescribed by skin age rather than skin type. There are two main transition periods in the ageing process where there is a dramatic shift in hormone production and a significant change in the way the body functions: late 20s to early 30s and late 50s to early 60s. ARK has looked at the skin externally and internally during these transition periods and divided its skin therapy into three “age appropriate” product lines:

The products they sent me are the Age Aware Discovery Collection - £28 and the Anti - Ageing Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer - £36.

Age Away Discovery Collection
These four mini samples come in a cute bag to keep them all together which is perfect for travelling away for the weekend or away on holiday abroad. You have inside: Cleanser, Exfoliator, masque and a moisturiser.
They all smell AMAZING. It reminds me of a spa, it's basically a mini spa in your own bathroom. I was most intrigued by the masque as this isn't like your typical face mask which dries hard and makes your face stiff so you can't talk, its a masque that is to calm all your blemishes and reduces large pores which is made of clay.
The exfoliator is probably my favourite out of them all. I love products that make you instantly know it's worked. Once you use this you can feel your skin is so smooth and fresh, but thats the feeling of any good exfoliator.
I've been using the cleanser every other day so i don't use all of my Liz Earle Cleanser and it's been doing the job and smells amazing. I am yet to use the moisturiser as i am trying to use up all of my current one before i move onto this one.

Anti - Ageing Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer
Now this, is an award winning product which lots of you voted one of your best face suncreens. You wear this under your makeup to get the flawless look as well as hydrates and gives you a glow. It has 3 important ingredients which help create this look: 
  • Vitamin E – antioxidant and provides photoprotection

  • Shea Butter – nourishes skin and protects from free radicals

  • Sunflower – packed with vitamins and minerals
This helped give the dewy look that i LOVE and try to get daily to help look healthy and flawless. It also helps make makeup last all day so it would be perfect to use if you have to go from day to night without applying more makeup!

Overall, i am literally in love with everything here. My fav being the anti ageing primer, exfoliator and the masque!
I am dying to try their toner now.
