When I first heard of the supplement I thought what a good idea it was. A formula you can mix with your own moisturiser to act as a tinted moisturiser, or as a concealer, or a foundation, allowing you to create your own perfect coverage.
I also saw the newly released liquid Cleanser called 9 to 5; my skincare tends to be on the expensive side so I am always happy to seek out cheaper substitutes.
I have had these products for quite a while as I needed to be sure before I gave you my review.
The 9-5 liquid cleanser (£7.95) is marketed for sensitive skin, it was meant to soothe irritated skin and clean the skin thoroughly.
For me this removed makeup extremely well, however I felt like I had residue left on the skin and yet my skin felt dehydrated afterwards.
Here are the ingredients for the cleanser:
I bought the supplement (£7.50) in the shade light pink. It felt quite oily on the skin but this was to be expected (it contains soya and rice bran oils). The texture is very rich and creamy. The colour is too dark, however even used neat this has little pigmentation. There is no way this provided enough coverage for my undereye area or facial discoloration. Furthermore it oxidizes as the day goes on and does not last long at all.
Here are the ingredients for the Supplement:
Fresh Rose Petal Infusion (Rosa damascena), Soya Oil (Glycine soja), Rice Bran Oil (Oryza sativa), Titanium Dioxide, Stearic Acid, Talc, Glycerine, Triethanolamine, Cetearyl Alcohol, Colour 77491, Colour 77499, Colour 77492, Methylparaben, Propylparaben
Swatches: On the right I have blended it in as much as possible
Before I go any further, for those who aren’t regular readers, I have to state that my skin is dry, sensitive and extremely reactive and acne prone (I am on medication to keep the acne under control as I suffered from severe adult acne for over 5 years). Due to this I am extremely limited in what skincare does not cause me problems.
Bearing this is mind I can say that these really did not agree with my skin, the supplements effects on my skin were obvious after every use and the cleanser I got down to ¾ of a bottle before I was able to ascertain it was causing my skin problems.
So where am I now, well when you skin is in a mess its always best to pair down completely and stick with what you know, however because I have no sense, instead of sticking to my cleaner that I know works for me (Snowberry) I got side tracked and bought from a brand I have never tried before (Nubo) so you can expect those reviews soon (of course I did not just buy a cleanser, you know I can’t just buy one thing when I try a new brand)
