I’ve been reflecting on this product, the ARK Anti-Ageing Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer, and trying to sum up what it does and how it makes me feel and the words that popped into my head were simple – it makes me feel special! Now I don’t know whether it has anything to do with the glamorous surroundings that I was in when I was gifted this, ( You can read about that here) or whether it’s because it’s beautifully presented but when I’m wearing this I just feel that my skin is looking the best that it can look and that makes me feel confident.
Let me try to tell you more about the practical side of things rather that my whimsical thoughts!
The purpose of this Anti-Ageing Skin Protector is to perfect and protect. it has a an SPF 30 which is great becuase even when it’s not sunny I want to be sure that I’m protected against UVA and UVB rays. It creates the perfect base for make-up and helps it to last all day.
The consistency of the cream is silky but somehow dense – I’m not sure if that’s the right word. It feels like it has goodness packed in. It has vitamin E which is an anti-oxidant and provides photoprotection; shea butter to nourish skin and protect it from free radicals; and sunflower which is packed with vitamins and minerals.
As you apply the cream it appears to be quite white but has you smooth it on the skin it’s easily absorbed. My skin looks not shiny, not shimmery but glowing. Not in an overheated red kind of way, and not with obvious light reflecting particles – it just has something indefineable that works like magic! You should use it over your moisturiser either as a base for make-up or on its own. I’m sure that it will make you feel special too.
This award winning product comes in a 30ml pump dispenser that gives you just the right amount so that nothing is wasted. It costs £36.00 here and that puts it just about in my reach. I have a kind of cut-off point of £30 – £40 for any beauty product – more than that and it just feels too indulgent and I feel I have to wait for a special occasion to treat myself.
I’ve got some other ARK products that I want to try out but these things take time and I want to give you my honest considered view, so give me a week or two and come back and see what I think!
Do tell me if you’ve tried and ARK products and I’d especially like to hear if you try this ARK Anti-Ageing Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer.
I’m looking forward to reading all your comments.
