Like rather a lot of people I work in a city, London to be exact, and much as I love it, between the pollution and the weather, it seems to be determined to wage war against my skin using my face as a battleground – usually at inopportune moments including first dates, friend’s weddings, and any occasion where photographs are mandatory.
Whether it’s dry skin or outbreaks, anything that appears on your face that in an ideal world, would not, brings out your inner teen – that is, an overwhelming desire to scrub/steam/exfoliate with nuclear force until the problem is fixed. Years however, as well as a few mistakes, and the guidance of those who know better than me have resulted in the lesson that sometimes a little kindness goes a lot further than punishing your pores for not perpetually mimicking Kate Middleton’s honeymoon glow.
Allergen free skincare brand, Premae, is a prime example of this. Just at a time when we thought our faces could not withstand yet another onslaught of rain and cold and gale force winds, it has launched its Plush Therapy range – essentially, mini spa treatments at home. As luck would have it, I was trying this at a particularly low ebb – end of the week, totally shattered, and just about ready to fall asleep in my quinoa. Instead, I opted for slathering on a faceful of their Plush Therapy Masque. With cocoa butter and aloe vera to remove impurities, and firm and moisturise the skin, it has a delicate, clean smell, and gently works on the skin in that way that almost makes you think it can’t possibly be making a blind bit of difference … that is until you remove it, and, true to its word, your skin is glowing with new found vigour.
There are several products in the Plush Therapy range, but on this occasion, the other one I also opted to try was the Plush Therapy Velvet Hand and Foot Crème. I have mentioned before, that as someone who rather enjoys running, my poor feet take a bit of a battering on a daily basis. That said, you don’t need to be running regularly for those soles to feel a little tired. Hard skin is the blight of anyone who doesn’t spend their days soaking in a milk bath with Cleopatra for company. If I am perfectly honest, I was sceptical upon opening this particular product, which is an extremely lightweight cream; I had precious little faith that it could possibly penetrate my heels. Once again, Premae proved my cynicism unfounded, as it was absorbed so quickly my pores might as well have been using teeny tiny straws, and more to the point, my skin actually seemed to noticeably improve over the coming days.
When I have previously reviewed Premae’s products I have had nothing to say but good things, and with the launch of their latest range that continues to be the case. They are simple and effective, and seem to prioritise results. One can only look forward to what they do next!
