FRESH-FACED (ten skincare range)


Hands up if you thought exfoliating cream always contained those abrasive grains? Me too. Ha! We were both wrong!

How do I know this? I was lucky enough to get to try out a fab new range of skincare. -TEN- is described as ‘no-nonsense’ boutique range, released by Scrubs Etc; a company more well-known for quality healthcare products. 

The premise is simple; with -TEN- products you won’t find flouncy packaging, and extravagant advertising campaigns. Instead they focus on elegant, effective skincare, with absolutely no hidden nasties; such as parabens, and formaldehyde. It’s what they call: Sound Skincare Science. 

I tried out their Anti-ageing Luminescence Skin Exfoliation Cream, and was surprised to find it was a lovely thick cream, rather than a scrub. 

At first I wondered how it could be as effective, without something to physically slough off the dull skin cells. But after using the cream every morning for a week, I have to say, I’ve been converted.

With days the gentle Alpha Hydroxyl Acids (AHAs) had begun to remove all that flaky, dull Winter skin, to reveal the lovely, dewy complexion underneath (Well, as dewy as two-weeks-shy-of-40-year-old skin can look!). 

Even OH noticed that I looked, in his words: ‘less tired than usual’ (which I think was a compliment…).

Anyway, you can check out the range for yourself HERE, which also includes a selection of products for babies, and Mums-to-Be.
