For many of us working in the fashion industry, the Christmas break enjoyed by all was actually one of the most stressful times of the year. With deadlines looming, LFWM planning and the all too many industry events in December; sleep and pampering were often neglected (well for me anyway!) Now that LFWM is over, we’ve turned out sights to finding the best beauty products and brands in the business. Today we review the Apple and Green Tea Eye Mask and Black Caviar Peel-Off Mask by Zero Skin.
Starting with the Apple and Green Tea Eye Mask, the purpose is to reduce dark circles and puffy tired eyes which after weeks of events we were in dire need of. Containing Green Tea Extract, Niacinamide (Vit B3), Alpha-Arbutin, Apple Stem Cell Extract and Hyaluronic Acid, the product is meant to rejuvenate the affected area with its soothing qualities.
The arbutin extract and green tea alone are hailed as godsends within the beauty industry for their individual qualities so with both married together within a single product, you’re in good hands with this product. The package does say to cleanse post-use to lock in the moisture. We opted to use the remaining serum which in itself worked as a very refreshing lotion but a light moisturiser would also suffice if you’re planning to brave the dry winter air.
From just two applications the results were very positive. My dark circles and puffy eyes had reduced and I appeared and felt far more alert. I’d recommend applying the patches in the morning before work as it’s soothing ingredients really help to wake you up. Another pro tip would be to store your packages in the fridge or other cold area of your home because the cold temperature will further help reduce the puffiness around your eyes.
The next product we tried was the Black Caviar Peel-Off Mask skin black mask. In recent months, these products have skyrocketed in popularity and it can be daunting to find the right product which so many products with varying reviews available.
The mask is simple to apply and surprisingly less messy than one might expect. Zero Skin have really hit the nail on the head with their blend of ingredients and it shows in the consistency of their products. After applying the mask and waiting for it to set, it was time for the removal. Admittedly, I was very nervous for this step. I’ve spent a lot of time in the office sharing videos of painful reactions to similar product removals and imagined this would be the same.
To my surprise, the mask peels off without any pain at all, I was in shock at how painless the removal was in fact. There was some residue left behind on the edges of my face but this was easily washed off which again reaffirmed how mess-free the whole process was. After the mask, my skin was noticeably smoother thanks to the removal of the inevitable dry caused by the dry winter air. After the mask, my skin was noticeably smoother thanks to the removal of the inevitable dry caused by the dry winter air. In truth, I’m not very prone to blackheads so can’t comment on their effectiveness there – however my pores certainly were clear from the daily greasy build-up.
All in all, both products far exceeded our expectations. When it comes to the skincare industry, it’s always daunting to switch to a new player in the game; especially one who seemed to crop up overnight but fear not – we can personally attest that Zero skin has you covered! While a new company, their collection isn’t extremely expansive however what they do, they do extremely well. We’re extremely excited to see what’s to come from one of the most exciting skincare brands of 2017.
