Targeting Skincare Concerns with Face the Future


face the future review

A couple of months ago, I got an email asking if I wanted to try some products targeted towards my skincare concerns (dehydration, pigmentation and early signs of aging) from Face the Future and I jumped at the chance! They sent me the most generous bundle of products they had picked out for me and I thought today I would do a roundup now I’ve used them for a while (and in some cases finished them!). 


face the future skincare review

Face the Future is an online skincare and beauty retailer that stocks so many amazing brands! As well as the ones I am going to go through in this post, they sell a selection of brands I have had my eye on for ages including Bioeffect, Environ, Evy, Codex, Image, iS Clinical, Medik8, Pestle and Mortar, Verso and Zelens. They also have a great section on their website offering recommendations when you do a short quiz if you are in the market for some new products! 


venn moisture balance all in one cleanser review

I loved the routine they sent me including cleanser, toner, serums and SPF and I have a couple of standout products that I know will be repurchases! First up, the Venn Moisture-Balance All-in-One Face Cleanser* RRP £55 and boy does this do what it says on the tin! It has a beautiful gel/oil/milk hybrid formula and is perfect for both a first cleanse as it easily removes makeup but also for a second or morning cleanse as it’s so hydrating and doesn’t leave behind a film! It contains niacinamide, panthenol, centella asiatica and PHA and fruit enzymes to name a few ingredients so is gently exfoliating as well as hydrating. I rub onto dry skin then add water to emulsify and either remove makeup with a wash cloth or rinse off if using as a second/morning cleanse! My skin never feels dry or tight after and though this is pricey, it’s love and I want to try more from this K Beauty brand now! Read more in this post here!


The Dear Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner* RRP £20.10 was the only product I had tried before and it has featured a couple of times on my blog already as it’s a firm favourite! Perfect for dehydrated skin, it’s a gel like toner formulated with hyaluronic acid as well as centella Asiatica and amino acids so as well as being hydrating, it is cooling and anti-inflammatory. Like the name suggests, it preps skin well for my next skincare steps leaving it plump and calmed. I like to use with a reusable cotton pad but you can put a few drops in your palms and pat into your skin if you like as well! 


skinceuticals revision skincare review

Next up, the Revision Skincare Vitamin C Lotion 30% RRP £132 for 30ml. I really struggle with Vitamin C formulations that are too oily for daytime use or pill so this was a revelation to me! It’s a lightweight creamy serum that rubbed in easily and sat so well with the rest of my skincare and makeup. As well as THD Ascorbate, it contains Q10, Vitamin E and squalane and did a great job brightening my complexion as well as minimising fine lines. The price is eye watering however so while I enjoyed it, I will be looking at a few other Vitamin C options now but if money wasn’t an option I would like to try this again in the future!


Skinceuticals is a brand I hear nothing but good things about so I was excited to see this in my kit having never tried their products before and being a fan of boujie hyaluronic acid formulations! The Skinceuticals H.A. Intensifier* RRP £90 for 30ml is a thick serum containing (obviously) hyaluronic acid that helps plump skin and improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles and texture. I love the consistency of this – it feels so luxurious - and it did a great job hydrating my skin (I apply to slightly damp skin). My skin looked and felt more plump, lines look filled out and it gave me a great base for the rest of my skincare and makeup but it didn’t wow me anymore than my usual go to, NIOD MMHC, which, while still pricey, isn’t as pricey as this so not a repurchase for me!


face the future website review

Last up, the La Roche Posay Anthelios Age Correct SPF 50* RRP £25 which has swiftly risen to the top of my favourite SPF’s list! This is formulated for sensitive skin and also packed full of hyaluronic acid and niacinamide so while protecting it works to target pigmentation too! Like Vitamin C, I struggle finding SPF formulations I like and I was concerned when I saw how thick this looked when I pumped it out but I needn’t have worried – it spreads easily across my face and neck leaving no white cast (I have fair skin for reference) and there is no pilling with this either! It doesn’t quite set or mattify but isn’t too glowy either and is a dream under makeup - I am so impressed, it will 100% be a repurchase for me! I talked about it more briefly in this post!



face the future skincare website review

I was also sent some samples and minis from one of my favourite brands, Dermalogica as well as a gorgeous beach bag from Image Skincare and I really can’t fault the selection of brands and products available on the website – definitely check it out if you are in need of a skincare shake up or want some targeted skincare advice and recommendations! Have you tried any of these products or shopped with Face the Future before?
