Glycolic Glow Tonic | Eye Makeup Remover | Moisture Cream

Skincare is one of those basic regimes that people either put a lot of time and effort into, or don't pay enough attention to at all. Unfortunately for me, as much as I know how important skincare is - I can get lazy with it and recently, it's started to show.  So I've decided to have a skincare switch up. As well as sticking to some of my old favourites, I've also added some new products into my routine and they're from Freedom. Here's what you need to know.

Pro Studio Glycolic Glow Tonic | £6.00 (here)

The name itself suggests that this toner is a dupe for the Pixi Glow Tonic, which everyone knows it's a beauty cult classic, but I haven't actually used the Glow Tonic, so I wouldn't be the best person to ask for a comparison. However, the product does have similar claims and is an exfoliating toner, which is used to help even out skin tone, and promote a brighter and clearer complexion. In the couple of weeks that I've had the Pro Studio Glycol Glow Tonic, I have really enjoyed using it. It has a fresh, clean scent to it and it gives my skin a little tingle (the good kind) when I use it, which to me, is an indication that the product is actually doing something. The formula contains Glycolic Acid, Aloe Vera and Ginseng, which help to exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells, to reveal softer and more radiant skin. Currently, I'm using this toner on my face, but I'm also keen to do a beauty experiment and try it out on my legs. I have what I like to call 'strawberry legs', where I've got little dots on skin. I'd love to see if the product works as well on my legs as it does on my face and I will keep you posted!

Pro Studio Eye Makeup Remover | £5.00 (here)

Next, I purchased the Pro Studio Eye Makeup Remover, which is sort of hard to explain. The best way to describe the consistency is that it's like a cross between a liquid and a gel formula, which is unlike any other make up remover I've used before (bear in mind that the Garnier Micellar Water is my go-to/holy grail). However, I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised. A little bit of this goes a long way and it's removed gel liner and waterproof mascara in a couple of swipes! The formula is also lightweight and suitable for sensitive eyes. It's gentle, yet effective and I also find it moisturising (yet non greasy) on my skin. I'm impressed.

Pro Studio Moisture Cream | £7.00 (here)

Last, but by no means least, I bought the Pro Studio Moisture Cream. Recently, my go-to moisturiser has been Skindrink by Lush (which I have loved!), but as I've been running low and this one was on offer, I decided to give it a go. Filled with shea butter, this Moisture Cream is really hydrating and moisturising on the skin. It sinks in really well, which means make up application is really easy, but it still keeps your skin moisturised throughout the day. So far, so good.

I bought my products on an introductory offer of 3 for £10, but check out http://www.freedommakeuplondon.com or http://www.superdrug.com for prices and any current offers they may have and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Have you tried out any of the skincare or make up products from Freedom? What did you think?
