This is going to be part three of the my ongoing series #PamperWeekend where I basically show you all the amazing skincare products that I have been loving recently. Make sure to tweet me using the hashtag all the products you’ve been loving too so that I can get some more inspiration.
A while back go I received a very generous package from the brand Urban Veda which is a brand that newly launched in Ireland back in April. I featured what was in this package over on my Instagram (@SooSoBeauty) but in case you didn’t catch that pic, the package contained a few products from their Purifying range. Urban Veda works by giving you a questionnaire to fill out where it basically ask you questions based on your skin concerns. The results of your questionnaire is then the range you should use from Urban Veda. Because I have normal/combo skin I can use both the Soothing Range and the Purifying. I explain this better in my Urban Veda Launch Event post.
The active ingredient for the Urban Veda purifying range is Neem and this definitely comes across in the facial wash as the scent is one of the nicest things about this product. I have been using this cleanser every single night before going to bed as my night-time cleanser. It’s got a gel formulation to it so it’s perfect for breaking down makeup and making sure the skin feels nice and clean. The gel itself does have a slightly milky green shade to it and it lathers up beautifully when water is added. The Neem scent I found works a bit like lavender before bed, in that it kinda relaxes me and gets me ready to pop into bed and straight to sleep.
I was also sent the toner from the range and as you guys can expect I have been using this in conjunction with the facial wash. I pop a little of it onto a small cotton pad and give my face a quick swipe all over. I found that this does have a slight tingling effect to it especially when you apply it straight after your facial wash. The scent of it is no where near as strong as the wash either. The consistency is that that of water but because of the packaging and the way the nozzle is set there is no risk of you overloading your cotton pad with too much product.
The last product in my package was the day cream and to be honest this wasn’t my favourite. It’s a good cream don’t get me wrong but I personally found it a bit too thick to use especially for the daytime. As a result I’ve been popping it on straight before bed and because there’s no SPF in it you can use it at night fine.
The cream itself has almost a whipped texture to it and when applied onto the skin it does feel nice and hydrating. It even has a slight cooling sensation to it. My only issue was that it took forever to skin into the skin and like I said because of that I felt it was a bit thick and heavy for me personally. Under makeup, for me, I just ended up super shiny especially in my t-zone where I have oily skin.
I still totally recommend this range especially if you like nice uplifting and slightly herbal scents. I would just pass on the day cream if your not a fan of heavy creams.
