HelloSkin is an online specialist skincare shop that cares about all those awkward skincare needs such as psoriasis, eczema, acne and dry skin. A team of experts carefully research all of the products available making sure they inform you what ingredients are included, what it is best used for and where best to apply it. The website is really helpful in that you can filter options to help find suitable products, for example you can select your symptoms, the type of product you are looking for and what part of the body is suffering.
I chose a selection of products to try out that I hoped would help with various minor skin issues that I have. I found the website easy to navigate and could pinpoint an array of products straightaway that fitted my needs.
I started with La Roche -Posay Lipikar Lait body milk from a brand I love and have used previously Their products are always of a high quality, giving instant results and I always find them lovely to use. Although I don’t suffer from psoriasis which this can be helpful for, I do have dry skin on my shins and upper arms which is not a good look in the Summer months. I found this lotion to be thicker than a milk consistency but thin enough that it was absorbed instantly into the skin leaving it really smooth and soft restoring the hydration but leaving my skin silky with it’s non-greasy and non-sticky finish.
For my face I chose to try the Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub, a brand I remember using when I was younger. The baking soda ingredient in this really appealed to me and also being a powder scrub sounded interesting. I suffered with acne around my jawline in my late 20’s and ended up having a series of peels and laser treatment to combat the bacteria. From then on I’ve been particularly careful to care for my skin with deep cleaning and this gentle but effective powder cleanser and exfoliator is perfect for that. I absolutely love this – it feels great on the skin and smells gorgeous with a delicate lemon fragrance that’s exceptionally fresh. With a small amount of powder in your hand, you mix it with water to form a paste then massage across the face. The mixture gently fizzes and makes it’s way deep into the pores to clean and clear. A winner with me and definitely a product I’ll be using regularly in the future.
Flexitol Heel Balm was my final product of choice and is just the thing I need for my feet particularly in the Summer months. At home I’m always barefoot or in flip flops and outdoors I wear flip flops or sandals so my heels are always naked. This results in dry, cracked heels as I know from experience which is not only unpleasant but exceptionally sore and painful. Since then I’ve been cautious to regularly moisturise my feet and this Flexitol balm is ideal to use each night time. I prefer to apply as soon as I climb into bed so that it can sink in and absorb deeply into the skin overnight. I love this balm and have found that my heels are looking a lot healthier with this treatment which I aim to use 5-7 times a week and is a footcare regular for me now.
Overall I’ve found HelloSkin to be a really useful and user friendly website to find all of my skincare essentials for problematic skin. Not only that, the delivery was prompt, the prices were very competitive and well worth buying online compared to instore. All the brands are well known names that have been chosen by their experts as products suitable for various skin complaints.
