DHC-Skincare-Beauty-Lift-Collection

Hi Guys!

Japanese skincare experts DHC Skincare are back on the blog today with their latest skincare collection. The Beauty Lift range comprises of four skincare products that contains a unique blend of olive oil, oat kernel extract, peptides and hyaluronic acid, to specifically focus on smoothing skin and giving a lifted appearance…

DHC-Skincare-Beauty-Lift-Collection-2

Starting with the Beauty Lift Lotion (£34.00) – This is actually a hydrating and lifting toner, not a ‘lotion’ as such (I was expecting some sort of moisturiser) This toner has a lovely softening and hydrating effect, with a super light texture. It feels gorgeous on, and I’ve been loving using it after cleansing to nourish and hydrate my skin. It promises to promote firmer, lifted-looking skin with intensely nourishing oat kernel extract and peptides, whilst minimising the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother complexion.

The Beauty Lift Essence (£34.00) – is a silky-soft lifting serum, created to hydrate and reduce the look of fine lines for firmer, lifted-looking skin. This product is another lightweight formula, this time formulated as a serum that feels almost watery and very soothing when applied. My skin really loves this stuff, it sinks in easily and leaves no residue, resulting in my complexion feeling radiant and hydrated.

Next is the Beauty Lift Milk (£34.00) – this is a lightweight yet deeply hydrating and lifting milky moisturiser. It’s been formulated with pentapeptide-18 to help reduce the look of wrinkles, oat kernel extract to help soothe skin and squalene, an antioxidant-rich skin protectant. Though I have dry skin and I do like this product, I think this could work especially well for those with oily or combination skin – if you’re looking for a light moisturiser that does the job and doesn’t feel heavy when applied you should check this out.

And lastly the Beauty Lift Cream (£41.00) – this is an intensive lifting cream moisturiser, to promote firmer, lifted-looking skin with intensely nourishing oat kernel extract and peptides. This cream is basically the opposite end of the spectrum to the previous three products- it’s thick and rich and personally I think it works really well as a night cream. This product deeply hydrates the skin, minimising the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother complexion. It suits my dry skin really well as it intensively moisturises, and I’ve been waking up with wonderfully soft skin after using this of an evening.

So you can see this is obviously a gorgeous as well as effective collection of products – DHC are always up there with pretty packaging! My only slight niggle is the lack of directions for using the range, either individually or as a collection of products – apart from the toner they basically all instruct to ‘use after toner, and for best results use with other Beauty Lift products’ which is a bit non specific – so possibly not the best for skincare newbies. I do however love the Beauty Lift Essence and Beauty Lift Cream, so I’d definitely recommend these products.

The Beauty Lift Collection is available now at DHC Skincare.

NEW DHC Skincare Reservatrol Collection

Posted on July 20, 2015

DHC-Resveratrol-review

Hi Guys!

I have a collection of brand new and rather gorgeous looking products from cult Japanese brand, DHC to share with you today. Ok, so you may have heard that red wine – in moderation – can actually be good for you? Well DHC has taken this on board, and after a serious amount of research, they’ve incorporated one key ingredient found in red wine into their new skincare range.

Resveratrol is a highly potent antioxidant that’s found in the skin of red grapes, and when applied topically it’s been found to improve tissue elasticity, support the skins’ natural moisture barrier and protect against environmental damage. Resveratrol is also a phytoalexin – one of 600 microbial compounds produced by plants to protect them from adverse conditions including UV rays. In DHC’s lab studies, it was also shown to promote the Sirtuin ‘longevity’ gene.

Utilising this powerful antioxidant, DHC has developed the Resveratrol three-step skincare system, which includes a high concentration of this wonder ingredient.  Unlike other powerful anti-ageing ingredients such as retinol, resveratrol is non-irritating and suitable for even sensitive skin – so it’s perfect for me!

The Reservatrol collection includes a hydrating toner, super-booster and rich moisturiser, and DHC recommend you layer the three products for maximum results.

Resveratrol Lotion (£43.00) – This ultra hydrating toner luxuriously promotes smoother, more resilient skin with resveratrol, combined with soothing, moisturising cereal extracts to help boost skin’s natural moisture barrier and improve its defences against environmental damage. The lotion has a light, water-like texture which allows for rapid absorption into the skin to prepare it for the booster and moisturiser.

Resveratrol Essence (£43.00) – This moisture promoting Essence is actually a serum, described as ‘a deeply hydrating super booster which reduces the appearance of fine lines for a smoother skin.’ DHC advise that you pat the serum into cleansed and toned skin prior to moisturising for maximum effect.

Resveratrol Cream (£43.00) – The third step in the Reservatrol route, this intensive, age defying moisturiser has a thick, luxurious texture. As well as providing total hydration for a more ‘plumped’ looking skin, the cream boosts the skins natural moisture barrier.

The three products all have a lovely, light scent, and each feels luxurious to use and apply. I’ve only been using these for a few days but my dry skin is already loving the moisturiser especially!

The Resveratrol range is available now from dhcuk.co.uk.
