I have two products from the new Marine skincare range from Spa Technologies UK. The products are called Marine as they contain natural products derived from the ocean bed, including – seaweed, red/brown algae, and liquid oxygen. These natural marine ingredients go deep into the skin to nourish, hydrate, repair and moisturise. A full list of other active ingredients found in the products can be viewed here. All products are suitable for vegans too.
I have been testing out 2 spa products for about two weeks. Both products are recommended for use at night, prior to sleep and as part of the everyday bedtime cleansing routine. First is a Flower peel serum.
Flower peel does sound like some sort of peel off face mask but it is actually a serum.
Flower peel is an anti-inflammatory concentrate of hibiscus flower and green tea acids fortified with salicylic acid to help with problem skin. The benefits include – Gradual exfoliation without irritation, decongestant of pores consistent with acne. Essential in treatment of rosacea. Allows basal cells to fully mature, strengthening the connective tissue matrix.
And of course, costing £25.00 a bottle I would only expect it to leave my facial skin in much better condition, which combined with the second product; it certainly does.
The aroma is a peculiar one which I could not quite put my finger on at first but I knew I had come across it before. It smells a little of fake tan and more so the gel tan type. Perhaps one of the tans I used had similar ingredients.
Being a serum it is a little oily and takes a minute or two to absorb. I use this product first after washing and then apply the second product which is the Intensive night recovery.
Again another serum type product which works well together with the flower peel.
This being a blend of aromatic essences oils enriched with 10% oxygen aids skin repair and provides powerful moisture, boosting recovery for mature and very dehydrated skin. It is an instant pick–me-up.
It provides a natural barrier that protects and provides the skin with anti-inflammatory EFA’s, rich Butters and Antioxidant Extracts
Perfect for hot Summer days too, After being in the sun the Intensive Night Recovery will repair the skin overnight, leaving skin with an extra glow and reducing the signs of premature ageing.
The aroma for this one was not as strong as the flower peel, it has more of an oily smell to it. Again it is oily and so slightly greasy at first but eventually sinks into the skin.
I use a few drops from each bottle every night and although I am very lucky to not suffer from any skin problems in the first place, I can certainly feel a good change in my skin texture and even tone since using them.
The products are not cheap – £35 for the night serum and £25 for the flower peel and the bottles are not huge. Therefore probably out of my price range when it comes to products such as these but certainly worth a try and would make lovely gifts too.
