Initial Impressions: Eloquence Skincare

Friday, December 18, 2015
Eloquence is one of the newest skincare companies in the UK and they use natural ingredients in their products so they claim that the range is suitable for dry and sensitive skin types. The products are free from artificial perfume, colour and harsh chemicals. Ingredients such as the it skincare ingredient of this year, hyaluronic acid as well as sachi inchi oil, coconut extract and sweet almond oil are included in their products.

I was very kindly sent the *Eloquence Pure Luxury Collection (£99) which contains the entire skincare range in one complete package. The set includes all full sizes of the Nourishing Treatment Oil (£50, 50ml) as well as the Purifying Facial Cleanser (£8, 20ml), Firm & Tone Serum (£20, 20ml), Firming & Moisturising Eye Gel (£26, 15ml) and the Protect & Repair 24 Hour Cream (£21, 20ml). Each product, excluding the oil, is numbered much like the Clinique skincare system so you know the order in which you should use the products which I think would be great for those who aren't used to a complete skincare routine.

- Purifying Facial Cleanser: The cleaner is naturally the first product in the sequence and it has a pump which makes it easier to control how much product you use. The cream has a pearly finish, it doesn't really have a scent and feels smooth/gentle on the skin. I do like this cleanser as it doesn't dry out my skin, it doesn't irritate my eczema on the whole (it did very slightly on occasion) and it left my skin clean and smooth. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

- Firm & Tone Serum: For the past year or so I have been obsessed with serums has they give my dry, sensitive skin a much needed boost of moisturise before I apply my moisturiser. This serum contains coconut oil as well as hyaluronic acid, the latter is amazing for keeping moisture within the skin. The serum has a creamy consistency which is very unusual for a serum as all of the others I've tried have had a very liquid consistency. The cream applies smoothly, it leaves my skin feeling moisturised and looking radiant to an extent; additionally there is no irritation at all. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

- Firming & Moisturising Eye Gel: I sadly haven't been able to test as I have eczema flareups over my eyes so they are almost constantly very sensitive; however my mum has been testing this eye gel for the past few days and she really likes it so she's going to test it out for me - the benefits of having a blogger as a daughter! Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

- Protect & Repair 24 Hour Cream: As with the serum, this product also contains hyaluronic acid which is a fantastic skincare ingredient for those with dry skin as I do. The cream leaves my skin smooth and moisturised, leaving a great base for makeup. However on the very sensitive areas of my skin I did experience very minor irritation which I don't really experience with the other products. Overall rating: ★★★☆☆, 3/5.

- Nourishing Treatment Oil: This is a multi-use oil as it can be used on the skin, hair and nails. I have been using it on the ends of my hair as it adds a slight amount of sheen so it doesn't leave my hair looking greasy at all and it helps tame flyaways. I've also used it in my hands and nails as it makes my skin so smooth and soft! This is definitely my favourite product from the range. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5!

Overall, I have to be honest about my initial impressions of these products and say that there are a couple of negative points, in my opinion, for example I am not a massive fan of the overall look of the packaging and a couple of the products did cause a slight amount of irritation on the extra sensitive areas of my face. I think if you have normal, dry, very dry or slightly sensitive skin then these products would work well. Keep in mind that this is just an initial impressions post and I will have a full review of some of these products in the new year. I have been loving using the serum and especially the oil, both of which I would highly recommend from my experience of the products so far.

Eloquence have now reduced their introductory prices and they have a special offer of 20% off each individual product until the end of January with code: JANUARYEQ
