Skincare Secrets: Cleanse, Jolt And Juice
There's more to skin health than just slapping on a bit of moisturiser every now and again. Diet, lifestyle and a good skincare regime all contribute to the overall appearance of our complexion. So, if we want to improve the condition of our skin and continue to look youthful, fresh-faced and blemish-free as we age, it's important to invest in our general health and choose a skincare regime that works for us.
Our skin is irreplaceable. It does an amazing job at protecting us but life is not always as kind. It endures so many different stresses on a daily basis and whether you're 21, 41 or 61, your skin will benefit from a bit of love. Well-protected and nourished skin will remain healthier for longer and will have a more youthful appearance. Let's face it, we would all like to still look good when we're pensioners.
So, to slow down the inevitable process of ageing, Time Bomb has created a collection of breakthrough formulas to help us 'stop the clock'. The range was created to target our skin's four deficiencies as it ages: loss of the ability to shed skin, loss of moisture, loss of oil and loss of collagen.
I was recently given the opportunity to try out their Skin Energising Kit and have been using their three-step regime for over two weeks now. Using the trio of products dubbed the 'workaholics', it has been super easy regime for me to adopt and I have started to see a visible improvement in my complexion.
Step 1: Cleanse Time Bomb Take-Off Time Cleansing Cream
Your skin naturally sheds its dead cells but over time, this process slows down which means your complexion can become dull, dry and uneven. So, to ensure your skin remains healthy and glowing, it is important to regularly cleanse and buff. With unique dermatological polishing crystals, the Time Bomb Take-Off Cleansing Cream buffs and brightens by gently lifting dirt and dead skin cells that can clog up your pores.
I am often wary of applying products to my face that have exfoliation crystals in them as my skin can become sensitive, but the Cleansing Cream has been kind to me and we have become very good friends. It's a lovely, refreshing way to start the day and unlike some cleansers that I've previously used, it cleanses without drying out my skin. The creamy formula feels and smells amazing and has definitely improved the clarity of my complexion. I apply it in the morning with my fingers and gently massage in circular motions, then rinse with warm water. The brand recommends using polishing pads but I prefer a more gentle exfoliation, so using it as it is works perfectly for me.
Step 2: Jolt Time Bomb Complexion Cocktail
We live in a society that is constantly on-the-go. Everybody everywhere seems to be busy, busy, busy with not enough time for proper respite. A tired and fatigued body only leads to one thing: inefficiency. Amongst other things, tiredness causes slower blood circulation, which impacts skin cell performance and leaves us with pale, lifeless skin. To combat the effects of a busy life, Time Bomb Complexion Cocktail reboots the skin's natural energy production and tone in the form of a potent tonic loaded with nourishing B Vitamins, centella and ginseng.
When I'm tired, my skin is first to feel the wrath of my neglect so I was intrigued by the claims of the Complexion Cocktail. I'll admit, I've never fully committed to using a toner everyday so this has been something new for me and my skincare regime. I've since discovered that my skin takes well to being rebooted and the Complexion Cocktail has done wonderful things to my skin, leaving it fresh and revitalised. It feels light to touch and smells amazing, which makes it a pleasure to wear. After using the Time Bomb Take-Off Cleansing Cream, I saturate a cotton pad and apply the product to dry skin in circular motions.
Step 3: Juice Time Bomb Youth Juice Secret Oil
Our skin produces its own oils to stop it from drying out, but this ability is reduced with age. So, in order to keep skin properly hydrated, we need to replace the oils. Designed to mimic your skin's natural sebum, Time Bomb Youth Juice Secret Oil penetrates the skin to protect, replenish and seal in natural moisture.
I am already a self-confessed oil lover for many reasons, so the Youth Juice Secret Oil slipped perfectly into my life. A unique blend of 11 oils including olive, kukui, avocado and jojoba, the Youth Juice Secret Oil is a light, hydrating formula that is quickly absorbed by the skin. After using the Time Bomb Complexion Cocktail, I apply a small amount to my face using my fingertips and allow it to penetrate my skin before applying my normal moisturiser. I really like this product because it smells beautiful and leaves my skin looking fresh and dewy. It has also given me more confidence going bare-faced as my skin looks healthier and naturally more radiant. Also, if I'm applying makeup, it provides a well-hydrated, smooth base.
Overall verdict: 5/5 a lovely, refreshing skincare regime that is perfect for daily use.
