[4 MINUTE READ]
We love a skincare brand with an interesting back story and Jordan Samuel Skin has just that! The founder; Jordan Samuel Pacitti used his background as a professional ballet dancer as inspiration for his line, focusing on a 'less is more' approach to skincare that supports even the most stressed-out skin.
Below our founder, Carolina, shares her thoughts as she reviews the Jordan Samuel Skin range, following its UK launch. Carolina has reactive, allergy-prone skin with redness.
Something that resonated with us from the start, was the fact that Jordan Samuel Pacitti focuses on supporting stressed out and irritated skin; which is something we also focus on here at CarolinaGMX. As a ballet dancer, Jordan experienced plenty of skin irritation and so, created his line as a solution to this problem that so many of us face.
The packaging is also super chic and minimalist (again, right up our street!), so it felt like a match made in heaven right from the start.
The Jordan Samuel Skin Hydrate Serum is one of the brand's most famous products and with good reason. The brand uses a formula of hyaluronic acids (plus lots of soothing essences) to create a serum that feels like water but soothes the driest and most dehydrated of skins. I personally loved it and found it to be incredibly soothing, even when my skin was at its most irritated and inflamed. A fantastic all-rounder serum for all sensitive skin types!
The After Show Cleanser (for all skin types) and the After Show Cleanser for sensitive skin are two fabulous products for removing even the heaviest of makeup. Removing makeup can be a real sore subject when you have sensitive skin. Honestly, I have found very few makeup removers that do not irritate my skin. The After Show Cleansers, however, do a fantastic job with their gel-to-oil formula that removes every last bit of makeup gently, without irritating or clogging up your skin. The nourishing oil mix makes the whole experience super luxurious, and helps maintain the moisture in your skin.
The main difference between the two formulas is that in addition to the nourishing oils, the After Show Treatment Cleanser for sensitive skin also includes green tea extract and aloe leaf. The addition of this duo helps to soothe especially irritated and sensitive skin that is at its most angry. Personally, I loved both formulas but this sensitive skin version is ideal for when everything seems to be going wrong with my skin.
This gorgeous, hydrating and light mist brings a lot of the same ingredients as The Hydrating Serum into a quick and easy, travel-friendly format. The mist is perfect for when your skin is feeling dehydrated throughout the day and can be used over or under makeup to add instant-dewiness when you need it most. The ultimate skincare essential to keep in your handbag!
All in all, I am such a huge fan and supporter of Jordan Samuel Skin and his gorgeous range of skincare essentials. Each of the products is so well thought through and perfect if you suffer from sensitive skin or need products to help support your skin, without irritation. Since Jordan Samuel Skin has landed in the UK I have been using the products daily, for ultra-soothing and hydrating skincare.
