I was recently introduced to UK-based natural brand Atlantis Skincare. I was lucky enough to sample two of their products, and love them so much I wanted to feature them in this week’s Clean Skincare Spotlight.
Atlantis Skincare creates fresh, handmade face and body care products under the tagline “Luxurious skincare for those who care”. And that tagline could not be more accurate. You can see and feel the quality of their products from the first use. They are high quality and high performing.
Atlantis Skincare’s goal is to bring the best to your skin through the power of plants, rich textures and the finest all-natural (and where possible organically certified) ingredient formulations. They produce all of their products in micro-batches at a privately owned facility to ensure freshness and efficacy of the highest quality. Every single product is made freshly on the day of your order it. How amazing is that?!
Atlantis Skincare uses only high quality, natural and organic ingredients that are carefully researched and selected for their nutritive properties. Each ingredient plays its specific role in the final composition, working in synergy with others to achieve more effective result.
And you won’t find water as the main ingredient in any Atlantis Skincare products. Instead they use Hydrosols as the liquid base. This is the condensate water that remains after steam-distilling or hydro-distilling botanical material. It is plant water that contains the very essence of everything that was contained within the plant when it was still alive and growing (amazing!), and it increases the anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties of the products.
WHY I LOVE ATLANTIS SKINCARE
- Everything is vegetarian-friendly, vegan-friendly and waterless.
- All products are free from parabens, mineral oils, synthetic colors, phthalates, silicones, petrolatum and BHT, glycols.
- Everything is cruelty free – there is no animal testing.
- Each product is made freshly on the day of your order, to ensure freshness and efficacy of the highest grade
- Products are packaged in glass containers to preserve quality and extend the shelf-life of products.
MY FAVORITE PRODUCTS
Glowing Skin Toner
This gentle toner is formulated to balance your skin after cleansing, remove the last traces of make-up and impurities, and provide a brighter and clearer complexion. Unlike many other toners that come in a mist bottle, this one has a pump that allows you to spray the product directly on a cotton pad (or reusable makeup cloth in my case) and rub into you face for more even application. It is light, soothing and absorbs extremely well. A little goes a long way here, so one bottle will last for quite a while!
Before I started using this toner, I wasn’t using any toner in my routine. Since adding this I have noticed a huge reduction in my oiliness, and I feel like all of my other products are working even better than before. If you are someone with oily or acne-prone skin, and/or someone who wears makeup on a regular basis, I highly recommend this!
Glowing Skin Day Cream
This 100% natural day cream includes anti-aging properties and hyaluronic acid. The sophisticated blend of precious natural seed oils and exotic butters ensures powerful antioxidant protection, promotes skin regeneration and helps to slow down skin aging. The hyaluronic acid hydrates and smooths skin, and helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
I was a little worried about adding this moisturizer to my routine in the spring, thinking it might be a little too heavy and better suited to winter. That is definitely not the case! I found this cream to absorb extremely well into the skin. It feels lightweight and not greasy at all. It leaves my skin looking healthy and bright, and is an amazing moisturizer any time of year!
I’ve also been using on the back of my hands each morning and the results have been phenomenal! My hands are softer than they have been in a long time (maybe ever?), and they look so much brighter. I am too often guilty of neglecting my hands in my skincare routine, so I am going to keep this up.
If you are looking to clean up your skincare routine, I strongly recommend you check out Atlantis Skincare. Next on my list to try are the Velvet Skin Night Elixir and the Eye Cream with Hyaluronic Acid.
