Winter Skincare Saviours with Ark Skincare

This cold weather just won't give up and the weatherman has just promised more snow. These Arctic conditions have really dried my skin out. I need some winter skincare saviours!

It's looking so grey, dry and dull, so I've started using hydrating, moisturising and nourishing products to replenish the skin. Here are some of my recommendations:

Ark Skincare Winter Skin Care Products


Hydrating Skin Response Serum - £42
Up until a year ago, I stayed clear of any serums in the fear that they would make my already oily skin worse. Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair (ANR) opened the door to serums and now I love trying new ones out. Ark's Hydrating Serum is very close to ANR in consistency and scent, they even both have the pipette dropper for application. I just dispense a few drops from the pipette into my clean hands and massage into the face. I wouldn't recommend using this in the day, it definitely should be part of your night time routine. I sleep with this on after cleansing and I wake up with hydrated, plump skin.

Plumping Lip Balm - £26
This took me by surprise, I really didn't expect it to come in a tube with a pump. It's like a lotion in it's consistency, again think this product should really be reserved for a night time pamper. It's a strange feeling at first but it does leave your lips super soft with it's creamy finish.

Nourishing Body Lotion - £26
With nurturing ingredients such as shea butter, coconut oil and silk proteins, it's very luxurious on the skin, definitely worth the money - especially as it's in such a big container, it will last an age.

Anti-Ageing Hand & Nail Cream - £19
My hands are the part of my body that first suffers from the cold. Chapped, dry and rough skin on your hands is so uncomfortable, a pump of Ark's Hand and Nail Cream will revive them. It's not overly heavy so you can keep it at your desk and still get things done without feeling sticky.

Loving Bath & Body Oil - £26
Again, the packaging took me by surprise, it's an oil with a spray top, which makes it ideal for quick application. The calming ingredients, Ylang Ylang and Jasmine, have really helped me chill out before bed. You can even use a few drops in the bath to create a soothing atmosphere, it also has excellent moisturising benefits.


I thoroughly recommend investing in winter skincare and Ark have some great choices!

  2. Never heard of Ark Skincare before, but you got my attention completely! I recently re-discovered serums among natural skincare brands and fell for them so hard, I don't think there's a way back:)! Definitely going to look for some more info about this Hydrating Serum (I need to get deeper into ingredients list before purchasing anything), thanks for your lovely review, Kathryn!

  6. I've not tried anything from this brand before, but all of the products sound lovely. My hands are in need of some serious TLC at the moment, so the hand cream sounds perfect!
