Skyn Iceland Winter Launches: Arctic Face Oil + Under-Eye Illuminator {Review}

Lara-Eurdolian-Sarah-Kugelman-Skyn-IcelandFar before the whole stressed skin thing became a trend in the skincare industry, Skyn ICELAND was a pioneer. Born from a life-changing mission to treat and alleviate the effects of stress on skin while promoting a stress-free life full of balance, health and wellness, their latest product launches follow that inspirational mission. If you haven’t used their eye gels and cleansing face wipes, those are two of my favorites from the line. I sat down with Skyn Iceland found, Sarah Kugelman before the new year to learn about the new products launching and have been testing them out ever since. Here’s what’s new from the brand:

skyn-iceland-arctic-face-oilSkyn Iceland Arctic Face Oil ($35) – The Arctic Face Oil consists mostly of Camelina oil, which is naturally high in omega fatty acids. Think of it as the Nordic variation of Argan Oil. The oil is light in both color and texture and soaks into the skin quickly, making it quick and easy to layer other products or makeup on top. The powerful hydrator plumps skin, repairs its lipid barrier, locks in moisture and over time smooths fine lines and wrinkles. The Camalina plant helps protects, soothes, regenerate skin can can be used all over the body, face, hands, hair. You can use it after you cleanse skin and before putting on your moisturizer. I prefer it in the evening as it’s a little rich for the day. And it can be used alone or mixed in with your cream. It’s really amazing on hands, I’ve actually been mixing it with my hand cream since everything has been so dry with the weather. The line is vegan and is suitable for all skin types including sensitive.

Skyn Iceland Under-Eye Illuminator ($39) – For me this is a morning product when you need some added brightness. It;s lightweight serum designed to lighten, brighten, and recharge tired-looking eyes which I agree with. My set back with the product though is you have to squeeze it so gently, otherwise way too much product comes out. And while you can wear it under your concealer, you only need the tiniest bit otherwise it pills under makeup.  It’s best on it’s own as it absorbs beautifully, and reflects this pretty pearlesent glow that brightens under the eye.
