Eloquence Natural Skincare Review*

If your used to reading my blog then you will know that I'm the biggest fan of skincare ever, if it's cheap and works I will buy it but also if it's more expensive but does the job then I'm very willing to stretch up the budget.  Now I was kindly sent a bunch of products a good few weeks ago from Eloquence and after trialling these products for a good few weeks there was no better time to start with the weather being freaky beyond words with gales, near enough hurricanes and then freezing so heating being on full, my skin going nuts so all in all a good time to see how this little lot would perform.

Eloquence is a new brand who's ethos is to market a skincare brand that contains natural products that being Sacha Inchi Oil which is rich in omega 3,6 and 9.  Now unless you have been hiding under a rock you will know that oils  and skincare oils are so the thing at the moment, the thought initially made me want to hide under that rock, as I thought putting oils onto my face and skin would cause me all sorts of grief but truthfully once you start unless oils don't agree with you, you can't look back and going back to the brand the use of omega oil in these products aims to help with skin dehydration, which causes your skin to look tired dull and generally not great.

I was very kindly sent five of their products, the weather is typically crap so not showing how actually bright green the packaging is against the silver, and would make a nice little statement in your bathroom.

So onto the first product which was the Purifying Facial Cleanser I had this in a 20ml size and it's enriched with cucumber and coconut extracts.  It takes a little while to pump out at first use but that's probably down to me being still asleep stood at the sink trying to wake up.  The product is lovely and light and just has a tiny hint of scent, easy to use and refreshing for your morning skin cleanse, left my skin feeling clean and not tight.  Over all quite a nice little cleanser.

Secondly you follow that with Firm and Tone Serum which I love, as i am in the omg I'm old bracket (41) I need every bit if help and some. This one contains coconut oil and hyaluronic acid and vitamin
A, you literally only need a pea sized amount, so less is more but I struggle with that concept and always put more on than I'm supposed to. But I'm trying to not,  you use this serum morning and night, and I loved the feeling of this on my skin and how my skin did look and feel much more hydrated.  So I really liked this as I could see and feel a difference.

Then you use Firming and Moisturising Eye Gel this is a little 15ml tube, but again you are only supposed to use a little bit.  I have leaned more to gels for my eye care lately as creams can sometimes feel for me like they are sitting under your eye area, whereas gels can feel cooler and more refreshing but that's just my thoughts.  The eye area is one if the first for showing ageing and as the skin is also much thinner you really have to take care of it.  This little gem helps with bags and dark circles.  For me as much as I am older I don't luckily have many wrinkles under my eyes or dark circles but I do seem to be getting bags (crys) but I found this light gel very soothing and helped with my bags.  At £26 I can see why a younger person may hesitate in getting there debit card out and I can understand that, but what I would say is that prevention is the key to looking better and you have to invest in your skin.  And you really have to look after it, so perhaps pull something back that you wanted and get this instead it will be worth it in the long run.

Protect and repair 24hr Cream in a 20ml size this has a UV protection which is great also again like the serum has Hyaluronic acid in to help plump up the skin. Again has a light creamy texture and is easily absorbed into the skin, didn't leave my skin feeling tight but comfortable and feeling moisturised and really helped against the drying effects my skin has been feeling lately.

Nourishing and Treatment Oil this is an expensive one coming in at £50 but don't faint there's good news for you later on, this product is absolutely gorgeous containing sweet oil and coconut it's luxurious and helps with hair nails and skin.  I have been massaging the oil into my cuticles and nails and the sides of my fingers where they often look dry and they look a whole lot better.  I haven't used it on my hair as yet, but I have on my skin and I can say that my skin literally drinks it up, so I know that this means yes my skin is feeling dry and dehydrated but that my skin really needs this and benefits from good natural oils, I hope that when I'm 70 I look like I've looked after my skin and hopefully these natural products will be a result of it.
