Love letters to our favourite skincare products

Love letters to our favourite skincare products

Here at Lion/ne, we all remember the moment we found ‘The One’. No, we don’t mean our spiritual soulmates, but rather the skincare products that truly changed our complexions forever. We’ve fallen for cleansers that soothe (rather than strip) dry skin, moisturisers that satisfy even the most finicky of combination complexions, and serums that aren’t an absolute pain to stick to.

If you can’t relate, then it sounds like your current skincare routine just really isn’t doing it for you. So let us help! Think of your Lion/ne Skin Mentors like your personal skincare matchmaker, helping you find formulas worth falling in love with. All you need to do to unlock this knowledge is book a Holistic Skin Session today.

But until then—below, some of our Skin Mentors pen a love letter to the skincare products they love the most…

To my iS Clinical Cleanser,

You have been a saviour for my dry, sensitive and acne-prone skin and have helped build my confidence massively! You are gentle, yet very very effective and I will continue to use you forever!

With love, Claudia x

To my Medik8 C-Tetra Cream

You have given me a radiant, even and glowy complexion and have been a true joy to use. Your lightweight yet nourishing texture is perfect for my combination skin, giving me the love my skin needs during the winter, without feeling heavy!

With love, Katie x

Oh, De Mamiel Pure Calm Cleansing Dew!

You are so good at cleansing my skin from make-up and SPF. You reduce skin’s redness caused by free radicals thanks to ferulic acid. You strengthen my skin’s barrier with ceramide-boosting blackcurrant seed oil. Your scent is so divine and relaxing! You are my favourite!

With Love, Vitalia x

To my Aveeno Calm and Restore Moisturiser

You have helped hydrate and calm my skin making sure any unwanted redness is gone! You help keep my skin nourished but the gel texture means I don't have to worry about any oily feeling. You have made my skin feel amazing!

With love, Clemmie x

To my Dr Sam Flawless Moisturiser

You are exactly what you say on the bottle ‘a hug for your skin’. Thank you for making my skin feel silky, smooth and always hydrated. You have ensured my skin is never dry or dehydrated and you help to lock in moisture and protect my skin’s important barrier. I love your thick consistency which makes me feel comforted and the fact that you never make my combo skin feel greasy. Thank you for all that you do!

With love, Fenella x

To my Vichy Hyaluronic Acid Booster

You have quenched my skin’s thirst without clogging my pores: perfect for my acne prone skin. My fine lines have been plumped out and you leave me feeling super hydrated and bouncy.

With love, Danielle xx
