This post has been written in collaboration with PeachyFox on a gifting basis.
I got sent some nice looking face products from Peachy Fox London a couple of months ago and I was SO excited to try it all out as all of the products looked amazing. I had seen lots of bloggers receive products from Peachy Fox and I was interested to see how they worked for my skin. Also, all of the products are organic, how amazing is that!
So, a little bit about my skin. I used to really struggle with my skin but now it’s pretty much perfect. I might have a few marks here and there but I rarely ever get spots anymore, which makes me super happy (skincare routine coming soon!). I have oily/combination skin. I tend to get a bit oily in my T-zone but then I also sometimes struggle with eczema, which is a dry skin condition. In short, my skin is bipolar. So if your skin is the same, I think you should definitely keep reading!
The first product I received was the Anti-Redness Facial Cream, which says to help calm the appearance of redness (and it’s rosacea friendly). My first impression was that it was really think, I mean like REALLY thick. I would definitely not wear this in the morning under my make-up. It is definitely a night-time moisturiser and a very heavy one. This wasn’t really my favourite as I’ve got oily skin to begin with. Also, I like moisturisers that absorb into my skin fairly quickly. However, this didn’t mean I wouldn’t want to try out the rest of the range, because just because one of the products doesn’t suit my skin doesn’t mean that the rest won’t.
The next thing I tried out was the Marine Collagen Eye Gel. It says to help reduce dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles. I’ve never really had a problem with massive dark circles or wrinkles, but I thought I would give this a go anyway. I had some sleepless nights and honestly felt like I looked like a panda (not a cute one though) so I thought I’d apply this before putting my make-up on. Since the previous moisturiser I tried was very thick, I knew to only apply a little bit of this. To me, this definitely soothed down the designer bags under my eyes. I don’t necessarily need eye creams but I guess prevention (of wrinkle) is key! If you struggle with dark circles and wrinkles, you might want to try this out!
The winner of this blog post. My absolute favourite. This is the Aloe Retinol Serum and it’s my skin’s lifesaver. As I said in the beginning of this blog post, eczema is not my friend. I get eczema weekly and it annoys me more than anything. Whenever I feel it coming, I put this on the same night and the next day and BOOM, it’s all gone! I honestly don’t even know how I would live without this anymore. I’ve tried the E45 cream for eczema and that did absolutely nothing for me – it stung when I put it on and it just made my face go all red. This one, however, absorbs into my skin within a minute, smells lovely and makes sure I never get eczema again. Definitely try this out, whether you’ve got oily skin, dry skin or combination skin. It’s so light and lovely and I know you would love it as much as I do!
Be kind, be humble.
