Your Skincare Questions Answered!

It can be very daunting stepping into the world of skincare and with so many products out there with so many ingredients and benefits, it can be very confusing what will best suit your skin or what type of skincare you need. 


Luckily, we have broken down our Give Me Skincare Range and explained what every ingredient & product does, shedding a little light on the complicated world of skincare. 

The Skincare Range

What order do you use the Skincare products? 

We would advise to begin your skincare with our detoxing Green Tea & Vitamin E Cleansing Balm, this will help to breakdown dirt, oils & makeup ready for a clean slate when applying your skincare products. Next, lightly press our purifying Retinol & Witch Hazel Face Toner into porous areas to help minimise pores, smooth texture and reduce inflammation. Follow with our super hydrating Retinol & Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum to help promote skin cell regeneration whilst plumping and firming fine lines & wrinkles. Our Avocado & Vitamin E Eye Cream helps to tighten the delicate area under the eye and restore restore moisture which leads to dark circles. Finally, finish with our anti-wrinkle Retinol & Niacinamide Day Cream to help moisturise, brighten & allow long lasting hydration all day long without the greasy residue. 




Do you have to use all 5 Skincare products everyday?

As all skin is different, you can tailor your skincare to the preferences of your skin, you may want to use all 5 daily or apply & swap in interval days. However we would always advise to apply a cleansing balm, a moisturiser & an eye cream daily to prevent ageing process and retain hydration. 


Is it suitable for Dry Skin?

Yes! With super-hydrating ingredients such a Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin E. The Hyaluronic Acid acts as a moisture magnet to lock in water retention and restore skins natural elasticity. In addition, Vitamin E is a natural moisturiser that helps to repair skin damage caused by skin dehydration. Our Green Tea & Vitamin A Cleansing balm is ultra nourishing against regular cleansers to help feed you skin with moisturising nutrients for a healthy hydrated glow. 



Is it suitable for Oily Skin?

Absolutely! Our skincare boasts powerful absorbing ingredients such as Niacinamide & Retinol to help regulate oil control without stripping the skins natural oil barrier and drying it out. All our products are lightweight and quick absorbing for a non - greasy yet hydrating daily application. 


Is it good for Acne Prone Skin?

We have had great feedback from customers with acne-prone skin. With repairing ingredients such as Niacinamide to help repair the lip barrier, minimise the appearance of pores and regulates oil control which can lead to breakouts. Along with our skin calming Witch Hazel, helping to reduce irritation & inflammation & fighting inflamed acne. Whilst Retinol repairs damaged skin and naturally exfoliates for a smoother/ clearer complexion.

The Day Cream is a lightweight whipped gel-like formula that hydrates without leaving any residue and finally, the eye cream is a lightweight cream that reduces inflammation around the eyes as it is a delicate area, and tightens any fine lines and wrinkles around where the skin is the thinnest.

I’ve never used any form of skincare before as I’ve always had clear skin, but I’ve been using all 5 products for the past week and I’m in love with them! Definitely can see and feel a difference almost immediately!! My boyfriend can’t stop stroking my face now as he says I feel like velvet, and I’ve had quite a lot of compliments at how healthy I am looking.
I’ve already ordered a set for my friend for Xmas as she has bad acne and hopefully this will help her!


This was one of the best Christmas gifts I have received my skin has made a dramatic change in its texture, feel and appearance. My acne has reduced my pores are much smaller and my skin feels and looks so soft and smooth, I highly recommend the five skin care items it has changed my routine day and night for the better. 10/10 and five ⭐️’s all the way


I’ve got the 5 products for skin Care but what about night time do you still use the day cream or is there a night time one as well
