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!
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!
