It’s Time to Phace Phacts
I’m always trying to go British these days. There is an abundance of great British brands out there, however on that premise alone, I still won’t justify parting with the cash. I’m looking for the quality Britain has become synonymous with and I want great expertise behind it too, especially when it comes to grooming products.
I have recently been introduced to a new cosmetic brand, Phace Phacts Avant- Garde Skincare. The brand claims to have formulated products which have been influenced by the personal taste of the founders and their partners. Claiming “the collection only contains ingredients we desire in our own moisturisers.”
I decided to put Phace Phact’s Notte Repair Phace Complex (night cream) under my microscope and see what the rage was all about. Here’s how I found it;
The first pump of the formula on the back of my hand and gently massaged into the skin. The formula is soft and light, and also reeks of essential oils. Essential oils are great for the slightly ‘oilier’ skin so all seemed good. The cream seemed suitable for my face so into the toiletries bag it went for daily use, before bed.
Face cleansed and ready for my cream. The formula offers great coverage with minimal product. Leaves a slight sheen on the face, not a bad thing for a night cream as this can indicate a treatment style approach to overnight hydration. Oh, and the essential oils helped me to drop off!
Next morning, woke up, glance in the mirror to see how it went, the skin on my face didn’t appear greasy at all so the formula has definitely soaked in. The sequence of events which proceeds was carried out every night for 14 days.
Over the 14 day period, Phace Phacts not only delivered the results it claims to, it also satisfied my night cream pre-requisite on every level. As I mentioned earlier, the cream is almost like a treatment, brimming with essential oils and ready to tackle the days damage. Offering such reputable results, I decided to try the compound as a day cream. A very good reason for this, as the cream leaves a slight sheen on the face, this can help to reduce, not eliminate, the effects of free radical damage to the skin. A hectic days work in the smoggy capital definitely calls for this.
