20 Nov Kimberly Sayer natural and organic skincare – review
A fanbase featuring celebrities plus copious plaudits from the national Press have helped propel Kimberley Sayer’s natural and organic skincare range into the beauty industry limelight- and it is so deserved.
The award-winning range of holistic face and body treatments contain only the finest, steam-distilled, certified organic ingredients and powerful anti-ageing botanicals and yet the price point is surprisingly affordable.
Each product features organically grown ingredients such as Oat Beta Glucan and Sea Algae plus cold-pressed pure essential oils. Products also contain organic anti-oxidants such as Beech Bud extract and powerful anti-ageing botanicals like the patented Plant Pseudocollagen which strengthens the structure of the cell wall.
The range is free from nano-technology, parabens and petrochemicals and is not tested on animals, all helping to earn the brand notable endorsements from leading green authorities and world-class modelling agencies.
One of the most impressive products in the range is the Kimberly Sayer Anti-Oxidant Daily Moisturising Cream SPF30 (£27.70 – 60ml).
Let’s start with the smell: the fragrance of this gorgeous cream is heavenly.
Suitable for dry, normal and sensitive skin, you’ll find a range of quality ingredients in this little pot of skincare magic. Cold pressed Borage Oil, which fortifies cell growth and provides anti-aging benefits, blends with minerals Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide to offer broad spectrum protection from the sun (UVA and UVB) without irritating the most sensitive of skins.
Oat Beta Glucan protects skin against UV-A oxidative stress, free radicals and reduces transepidermal moisture loss.
The cream also features Beech Bud extract, an anti-ageing and anti-wrinkling ingredient that heals aged damaged cells. Nettle extract promotes cellular growth.
It is an effective makeup base and offers day-long nourishment. Just ask Paula Abdul, she’s a big fan.
At the other end of the day treat your complexion to the Kimberly Sayer Tangerine and Calendula Healing Light Night Cream (£27.70). I’m not a fan of rich and oily night creams so this one gets my backing. It has a wonderful soft, whipped texture that glides onto the skin and soon sinks in.
It is recommended for balancing oily and blemished skin, healing acne scars, hyper pigmentation and sun damage, supporting collagen metabolism, brightening and nourishing skin. It’s suitable for oily and anyone suffering from acne.
Pure Calendula is extracted using the super critical carbon dioxide process (using only natural gas) to render it at its most optimum and most potent medicinal state to heal acne scars, dark marks and sun damage. Its anti-aging formula increases glycoproteins and collagen metabolism while Tangerine Oil detoxifies the lymph system, soothes skin and enhances sleep. Finally Sandalwood brightens the complexion and nourishes skin.
If your skin is oily, combination or prone to blemishes look out for the Kimberly Sayer Light Cleansing Lotion (£22.20), a daily organic cleanser and fabulous makeup remover.
This lotion thoroughly cleanses oily, clogged pores and balances skin’s pH level, creating less oil and controlling shine. It contains Oat Beta Glucan for protection against UV-A oxidative stress and reduces inflammation plus Soy Protein and Essential Oils including Lemon Oil, to decongest the cellular tissue and minimize oil.
It has a delicate fragrance and the 120ml bottle will last a long time as you only need a small amount for it to do its job.
The Cellular Extract Eye Lift Gel (£31.70)
I can’t heap enough praise on this gel.
After using for just a few days I could see a noticeable difference around the eye area. It is great for aging skin and has remarkable firming qualities.
So what’s in it? Plant Pseudocollagen (glycoprotein)- a living plant derived yeast that in nature actually holds plants in their upright postion – will bind moisture on the cellular level, creating a firmer, younger looking appearance. Squalane derived from olives, gently hydrates and protects skin against dehydration.
It contains Kimberly Sayer’s patented ‘Plant Pseudocollagen’ Plant Oils and Squalane from Olives to gently protect skin against dehydration. Love it.
