I recently discovered the brand ARK, a skincare focused brand with a range of 'Age Aware Skincare'. 'Age Prepare' Products are for Teens to early 30s, 'Age Maintain Products' for Mid 30s to 50s and 'Age Repair' for 50s and beyond. I haven't seen this idea of splitting products by age anywhere else, and I love the concept, as evidently different ages of skin have very different needs. The first product I've tried from the Age Prepare range is ARK's anti-ageing Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer*. I initially wanted to try out this product for a couple of weeks before writing a review, but having tried it just a handful of times, I am so excited by this product that I couldn't wait to tell you about it!
First of all, the packaging: I love it when a brand spends time on the packaging and ARK doesn't disappoint. The bottle feels very luxurious, and the pump dispenses just the right amount to cover my face. It smooths on beautifully, leaving a silky and glowing finish, onto which my foundation applied perfectly. Throughout the days that I have worn this primer, my makeup has stayed in place and stayed looking more fresh than with possibly any other primer I've tried. Since it kept my makeup looking wonderful for over twelve hours, I half expected there to be some potent ingredients to achieve this, and waited for my sensitive skin to break out. But every morning after using this Primer, my skin has looked fresh and radiant (It's actually all natural ingredients!). All this, and its skin protecting ingredients are protecting me from the ageing process under my makeup! The single downside I can find with this primer is the price; a hefty £36. However, I think the price tag is justified with the amazing results I got from this primer.
I'm really excited by ARK, and can't wait to try more products from this brand. Have you tried any ARK products yet?
