You Review: Gemma tried out Clear Start’s Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion, and here’s what she loved

Last month, we treated some lucky MP!ers to a new product from the geniuses over at Clear Start. The Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion is a lightweight moisturiser with powerful ingredients like squalane, hyaluronic acid, and ginger, orange, and grapefruit botanicals. After giving it a shot for 30 days, here’s what Gemma had to say.

Clear Start

First name and age?
Gemma, 27

Describe your skin before using the lotion.
Combination skin with light acne.

What were your thoughts the first time you used the lotion? How did it feel, smell, etc.?
The texture was nice and it sunk into the skin very well. After a few minutes I could not feel it on my skin at all. The smell was pleasant and not overpowering. I enjoy light smelling/odourless products as I feel fragrance irritates the skin.

How often did you use the lotion? How much did you use each time?
I used about a penny sized amount each morning and night. Not much required at all to spread over whole face.

What was your favorite thing about the lotion?
I enjoyed how easily it absorbed into my skin as some moisturisers seem to only spread over your face and do not sink in. I also enjoyed knowing that this product would hopefully improve the condition of my skin.

Did your skin improve after use? How so?
My skin felt more moisturised and I felt it was a little clearer than before, but feel I would like to give it more time to see if it clears my skin from minor acne as I am still getting some breakouts

Was there anything you didn’t like so much?
Although the moisturise spread very easily and absorbed nicely, it did feel a little runnier than I am used to. But this is something I could get used to.

Would you recommend this product to your best friend?
Yes I would recommend this product. I like the brand, and felt this was a good quality product. I didn’t feel like I was irritating my skin when using it and would happily recommend it to my best friend.

Would you consider purchasing the full size product?
Yes, I am intrigued by the Dermalogica brand and the products designed to clear acne seem like they know what they’re doing and will be worth the money. I am grateful to have tried this product and I now feel more confident buying more products from the range.

Intrigued? You can get yourself a 2oz bottle of Clear Start’s Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion for just £16.15.
