My name is Sara Jane and I am a new addition to the skyn ICELAND team! As an avid traveler I decided that after a few sweltering weeks in Manhattan I was long overdue for a weekend getaway to visit my old stomping ground of Newport, Rhode Island. This was my chance to get out of the city and enjoy a little taste of New England which usually entails, long days at the beach, late nights on the town, and lots of clam chowder. While I may enjoy my weekend adventures, my skin doesn’t always agree, so I thought this would be a great time for me to really put my newest skyn ICELAND products to the test.
I ran out of the office Friday and hopped right onto the train. The “fresh” subway air really left my skin feeling sticky and dull which only got progressively worse as I boarded the Amtrak train to Rhode Island. Three hours later I was exhausted and horrified at the state of my skin. I needed a quick pick me up and remembered that I had a travel size Arctic Face Mist in my bag! It provided a splash of vitamins to my lackluster skin and left my face feeling refreshed. Later that night at one of my favorite hangouts, I enjoyed a few shrimp and cocktails but I couldn’t wait to get back and wash the New York City grime off my face.
I remembered learning that our Glacial Face Wash gives you that “squeaky clean” feeling and that was exactly what I was looking for. The combination of ingredients left my skin clean and revitalized and I was ready to move on to my next product, the Nordic Skin Peel. This really stood out to me because it was gentle yet powerful and a great addition to my regimen. The green tea and white willow bark extracts added a cooling sensation while the soft cotton clothes gently removed dirt and oil. I decided to finish off with a product that sounded like the perfect ending to my night, the ANTIDOTE. This light weight lotion hydrated my tired skin without feeling heavy or greasy on my face. To complete my new skyn regimen and de-puff my sleepy eyes, I swiped on a bit of our Icelandic Relief Eye Cream and called it a night.
The next morning I met up with my friends and they couldn’t believe how amazing my skin looked! As we enjoyed another lovely breakfast downtown I could see that behind their large coffee cups were some puffy eyes and dull, dehydrated skin…I’ll have to send them some of my new favorite products!
