Beauty Review: Ark Skincare Agedefy Products for Midlife Women 50+

 

Ark captured my heart when I read the words ‘formulated for your 50s onwards’ because if like me you are 50 or over, you will have noticed that your skin has changed dramatically. At almost 56, my skin is drier, duller and less elastic than it was in my 40s. Ark Skincare is new to me and to be upfront and honest, all products were gifted. I’m thankful they were, because I would not have discovered these wonderful products by myself. Agedefy by Ark Skincare is a range especially formulated for your 50s and onwards…

Please note all Products Gifted but as I explained above, I’m so glad they were. Otherwise I wouldn’t have discovered this amazing British Skincare Brand. Please read my Privacy and disclosure page here for more details.


 

Formulated for your 50’s onwards

 

Ark Skincare

I am being very fussy about the brands I choose to review. I will only recommend brands I would buy or brands whose ethos I respect. Let me tell you a little more about Ark skincare.

  • Ark is made in the UK.
  • Their products are never tested on Animals.
  • Ark products are free from Parabens, SLS, mineral oil, S.D. Alcohol, Formaldehyde, and Artificial Colours and Fragrance.
  • Products contain active, natural ingredients wherever possible
  • Ark care about recycling and have partnered with Terracycle, who specialise in recycling materials not accepted by council collections.

Ark Skincare has 3 ‘ageintelligent’ collections (I love that a product is named ageintelligent) a tailored age skincare collection makes a lot of sense to me.

  • Ageprotect for the teens and the 20 year olds
  • Agedefend for your 30-40s
  • Agedefy for all us ‘girls’ over 50 and onwards

There is also a range of products for everyday use that compliment the ageintelligent ranges the skinessential collection is for all ages. Plus Skin Perfectors that target specific problems.

 

Agedefy

I realise that all skin is different and skincare is very personal. I also know that nothing can turn back the years, those little wrinkles tell the story of our lives. However, the quality of your skin can be improved, by what you eat, what you drink and how you take care of your skin.

I have been trialing the agedefy range.

Age Defy Brightening cleanser.

I will come right out and say it, I love this cleanser! It feels comforting from the moment you start to apply it, smells gorgeous and after a few days my skin did indeed look brighter in the mornings. At £25 for 200ml a good price for something that will probably last you a few months.

Simply massage into damp skin and remove with warm water, I use a soft flannel for this.

To remove makeup first I have been using the skinessential pre cleanse and makeup remover, it helps to remove stubborn mascara, so you dont wake up with ‘Panda eyes’ in the morning!

My Hero Product from the Ark Agedefy collection.

Age Defy Nourishing Moisturiser.

An award winning product for the over 50’s and in my opinion rightly so! A superb moisturiser, my skin looked more hydrated and fresher after just one week of using this morning and evening. Unlike some facial moisturisers you can apply your makeup on top straight away, it makes a lovely base. With a clever airless pump delivery system, you press down the top with your thumbs to express the moisturiser. Two presses are perfect for me, This means it is hygienic to use; oxidation from contact with air is minimised; and the product fully evacuates from the container to prevent wastage.

Bio active ingredients:Blackcurrant & Starflower Lipids, Gojiberry, Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Red Clover Extract, Matrixyl.

Skin Protector SPF30 Primer

Another product that I can personally recommend is the Skin Protector SPF30 primer.

I never ever go without an SPF during the day whether I’m inside or out! This one works as a base for makeup too, is lightweight, does not clog your skin and is very wearable. A word of warning do not put it near your eyes, it stings!

Why not try an Ark Skincare AgeDefy Starter Kit?

I like to try a new to me skincare collection by buying the starter kits. Ark Skincare have a few to choose from, but I rather like the look of this one: The Agedefy Discovery Mini Set a bargain at £38!

The Set Includes:

– Brightening Cleanser 30ml

– Nourishing Moisturiser 30ml

– Hydrating Beauty Mist 50ml

– Pre Cleanse & Make-Up Remover 50ml
