Revolution Skincare.

Hey there! so a few weeks ago i showed you the revolution haul i made as soon as there skincare line came out, of course because its skincare i needed to give it a test for a few weeks but now ive given it all a good try i can tell you what i think!

Revolution skincare is following the trend that started with the ordinary, affordable budget serums with ingredients you would normally have to pay way more for. In true form of revolution, they have brought out a range of skincare quite a like to what the ordinary offers, considering the issues with the ordinary of course everyone is hoping that the revolution line is a good replacement.

Pricing & packaging starts them off well, the serums are £6, the oils are £10 and the gel-cream is £8. It is in simple boxes and the actual products are in glass feeling slightly frosted glass unless you go gel-cream thats in a jar.

Personally, i love this kind of skincare i like being able to use what my skin needs at that moment in time, i like the fact that its so affordable too, i wouldnt be able to afford a lot of this otherwise!

So, onto the actual products!

im sorry theres no pictures of the actual product by the way, i forgot to take pictures of that and its raining!

So first up we have the skin blemish and pore refining serum with 10% niacinamide and 1% zinc £6.00. This is meant too help gently tackle blemishes, making them seem calmer and also to ease what is causing the skin to have a fit in the first place!

This is a super light serum, it sinks in very quickly and feels like nothing on the skin. I used this over that time of the month when i had a lot of very big sore hormonal spots, i applied it every morning and every evening and i did find that the spots i had healed much faster than normal and it seemed to help prevent any new ones pop up! Ive also had some pop up which im guessing are stress related, and yet again this serum as really helped heal them quicker than normal, its one of those things i think is always a good idea to have on hand in case your skin has a bit of a fit.

Next up is the Skin nourishing CBD oil £10.00, this is one of two facial oils that they make. I am a big fan of rosehip oil so i was going to pick that up but when i spotted the CBD oil i couldnt resist trying it! So the CBD is meant to be soothing, calming and nourishing and it really is, id say its a very classic facial oil. It feels like a nice layer of comfort basically on your skin, especially nice when your skin feels rather pissed off! ive really liked using this, its a basic facial oil but basic in the nicest sense of the word, a staple for sure for me at least now!


Next up we have the Mild skin exfoliator 5% lactic acid + hyaluronic acid £6.00, this is meant to be a mild skin exfoliator that helps improves the look of skin texture combined with hyaluronic acid to help hydrate and plump up the skin. I really, really like this, so much! i hadnt tried anything lactic acid based before, i like how mild this is but it still feels effective, when it hits any open spot you get a little bit of a sting but obviously that makes sense considering these acids should help eat away at the bacteria in the spots! but with the hyaluronic acid in this serum that helps deliver the lactic acid very so very gentle which is nice.

Lastly we have the plumping & hydrating solution  – 2% hyaluronic acid £6.00, i think everyone and there mother knows what hyaluronic acid is these days, and it helps hydrate and plump the skin. I love hyaluronic acid serums and this one has become a staple for me, its very like and hydrating and so easy to use, no issues with this what so ever! i really like it.

So in total, i adore all of the serums and oil i have tried and i really want to try the others, i am a big fan of these for sure (can you tell?) and i would highly suggest anyone who would like to, to give them a go!

Revolution skincare & brush haul.


Hey there! so as i have mentioned and shown before, im quite a fan of revolution (originally makeup revolution) and all of there sister brands (obsession, freedom etc). Revolution, obsession and freedom take up the most room in my collection for sure, so when i heard that revolution were bringing out a line of skincare, well you know that gif of the little girl throwing money out the window? me towards revolution! i knew that i had to try it, and placed an order as soon as it came out.

I also picked up 2 things in the sale (again!) while i was at it, i picked up the obsession trend sets weapon of choice brush set £5.00, i have a thing for brushes at the moment and im really impressed with these! they may have been a complete nightmare to photograph but they are so soft! i just wanna sit and touch them….thats a bit weird but hey ho!

I also picked up the revolution pro cleanse brush tool £2.00, continuing on my never ending quest to get my brushes as clean as i can get them!


Anyway, on to the good stuff right? i picked up four of the serums on offer, now the skincare they have launched has serious the ordinary vibes but seeing as i love revolution so much i would love if they were as good or even better than the ordinary!


When i saw the revolution skin blemish and pore refining serum 10% niacinmide + 1% zinc £6.00 i was very curious. I tend to suffer with hormone related breakouts across my chin and jaw pretty much all month long but it gets rather awful and pops up in random places around my face when my period actually hits so i thought this would help with that! again theres no scent and nothing bad about it yet, but reviews will be incoming!

Next thing i bought i was very curious about the minute i saw it, the revolution skin nourishing CBD oil £10.00. The oils in the range are the most expensive thing right now, i have used and loved rosehip oil before (the other oil in the range) but when i saw CBD i had to try it! CBD has been everywhere lately, and i loved the sound of it for my skin too, meant to be nourishing and calming, so far ive found it smells like nothing and theres nothing bad about it yet.

There was no question i would pick up the skin plumping and hydrating soluation 2% hyaluronic acid £6.00, i really loved the hyaluronic acid i tried from the ordinary so i really wanted to see if i could find a replacement and i think i have so far! reviews and overview is coming but i really like it right now.

The last thing i picked up is the revolution mild skin exfoliator 5% lactic acid + hyaluronic acid £6.00, now i spoke last week about acid exfoliators and i showed that all the ones i have are glycolic based, i really wanted to give one a go thats one a different acid and two in a serum! so far my skins been fine with it, only notable thing is that is smells like chocolate? weirdly!

So there you go! my revolution haul of brushes and there new skincare, a overview of the skincare and reviews of each product will be incoming once ive had time to test it all. so look out for that!
