If you’re an avid reader then you’ll know I’ve been on a constant mission to find that one skincare brand that I fall absolutely head over heels for. You know what I’m talking about, a brand where every product can do no wrong and the results are so fabulous you either want to shout it from the rooftops or keep it your little beauty secret.
It’s not to say I haven’t done some serious soul-searching because I must have tried every single skincare brand in Boots. Since I’m still on the hunt I was really excited to try the Matis Response Jeunesse beautifying cream* and moisturising serum* that I received from 25o, in Sunderland.
During my evening skincare regime, I love using products that are going to replenish and rehydrate my skin, and this is what this Matis combination aims to deliver. The serum improves hydration while the cream restores tried and weary looking skin, which is definitely something I need with this horrible weather we’ve been having!
Before applying the serum the smell instantly hits you. The mix of orchid and cranberry is absolutely delicious, and is a fragrance that lingers even after it’s absorbed into my skin. Two squirts is more than enough to cover my entire face and neck, and it simply glides over my skin like silk. Honestly, I’ve never tried a serum that’s felt so smooth and soft before, plus it has a shimmery pigment to it.
I always follow a serum with a rich cream, so that during the night my skin can soak up all the goodness. Just like the serum the cream is soft and although it’s thick it only takes a matter of minutes before it’s completely absorbed into my skin.
In just over two weeks I’ve noticed my skin is soft and incredibly smooth, my cheeks even feel lovely and plump. My skin, which is usually quite dry, looks like it has a natural dewy glow to it without the oily residue. Once my foundation is on I found it illuminates my forehead, eye and cheek areas, which makes my skin look healthy, as well as a little highlighted.
