Altilis Beauty Complete Skincare System

Thursday, 3 May 2018

If you have been following me for a while, you'd know that I believe less is more when it comes to either skincare or makeup. At the end of the day, it really doesn't matter how much you put on your face, it's what we put on that matters. Remember: quality > quantity. 

As I age, I find that I use fewer products but they have to be all natural, effective and lightly fragranced, and that's really what I've been looking for in products these days which is why I'm super duper happy when Altilis Beauty sent me the Complete Skincare System to try and let me tell you, my skin has never felt so fresh and frankly, energetic if I may use that adjective to describe my skin. 

The Complete Skincare System retails for 110 Canadian Dollars and it comes with a cleanser, a serum and a moisturiser, and that is all you need for a perfect skincare routine if I'm honest. Well, I would also add in a refreshing toner but that's just me. This skincare set is suitable for all skin types and all age groups, even if you have the most sensitive or mature skin as all of Altilis skincare products are infused with Tropical Breadfruit and other Powerful Botanicals which are directly picked by micro farmers from Samoa that is well known for their anti-ageing and soothing properties plus the fruit is full of antioxidant which makes the skincare set great for morning use. 

I use the InflorEssence Facial Cleanser mostly in the morning or as my second cleanse sometimes as it lightly foams, very light actually so it doesn't dry out the skin. My skin feels smooth and looks healthy every time I use it plus the scent just really wakes me up and puts me in a better mood. 

But the hero product in the set has to be the InfloEssence Serum. This is by far, one of the best serums I've tried. It makes my skin glow like nobody's business but the best part is the texture. It's halfway between an essence and an oil and as you rub it in, it absorbs instantly, no greasy residue and my skin just looks youthful and healthy. This is truly an 8-hour-sleep in a bottle.

Sometimes I find that the serum alone is hydrating enough for my skin but if I wear foundation or I feel particularly dry someday, I would layer the InflorEssence Moisturiser on top. This is what I would say a light moisturiser so if you have oily or combo skin, this would be a great option but if you have dry skin, make sure to layer it on top of the serum. It has a smooth, kind of a gel to cream texture that sinks in a blink of an eye. It gives a somewhat matte finish and it would be a great primer before any foundations. I think I'm gonna benefit from it a lot this summer as I do prefer a light moisturiser in the summer just to avoid that heavy/greasy feeling. 

All 3 products come in pump bottles so they are very easy to use and you don't have to worry about that "dipping-your-fingers-in" jars or pots situation. I highly recommend checking them out if you like simple but effective skincare routine and if you really like it, you can even purchase the whole set in a much bigger size. 

That's it beauties, and if you can't tell already, I'm in love with these gems and I hope you would too. A massive thank you to Altilis Beauty for sending the goodies! Have a lovely week!
