Like I’ve said before, skincare over the winter months is vitally important. Although I usually go for a staple system that, over the years, has been a go to throughout the year, the cooler months require just that extra TLC.
I was very lucky enough to be sent some products by the Cornish-based organic skincare range, Trevarno, to review. And quickly I fell in love with the products.
For Your Eyes
The first product I used, and quickly added to my morning routine was the Organic Eye Cream. Made from a mixture of essential oils, rosewater, eyebright, beeswax and cocoa butter, this product was designed to reduce puffiness and dark circles. As someone who suffers a lot from looking tired (working two jobs and a full time Uni course will do that to a person), I always use under-eye concealer as part of my makeup routine. But since I’ve added this eye-cream into my routine, I have noticed a visible difference. The cream is very thick and only a few dabs around your eye area will go a long way. It also absorbs easily into the skin, and doesn’t leave it feeling tacky. I particularly enjoyed the cooling sensation that it provided as well. It made me relax at night, but also feel alert in the mornings. The scent wasn’t overwhelming, and so far it hasn’t irritated my eyes. So all in all, a fab product.
Organic Eye Cream retails at £10 for 15ml/£18 for 30ml
For Your Hands
The second product I used was the Organic Nail Conditioner. As part of my job, I work in a bakery, and this is particularly tough on my hands. I’m lucky that I’ve never had real issues with splitting, but I used this conditioner as a preventative. With clear instructions on how to use it, this conditioner has helped with reduction of ridging. With the appearance of a salve, the scent isn’t particularly strong, and I think is well worth the money as you get a lot of product. It’s also made my nails feel softer at the cuticles, and is a good step to use if you have to use nail varnish remover on your nails a lot (I love painting my fingernails, but due to work, I have to constantly remove the colour). I think this would work well for people with real nail issues.
Organic Nail Conditioner retails at £8 for 15ml/£12 for 30ml.
For Your Face
And last, but certainly not least, I was sent the Organic Day Cream. Now, I’ve got an issue with day creams/moisturisers. By my dermatologist’s recommendation (yes, I know I’m fancy), I really shouldn’t use products with too much oil on my face. Especially around my T-zone. So I was wary when I tried this. However, despite all my fears I was pleasantly surprised. The moisturiser didn’t flare my sensitive skin up, and I didn’t have issues with clogged pores. I noticed that it also helped calm my redness around my cheeks, and just left me with more of an even skintone. It also made my skin feel softer, and provided an excellent base for makeup. Also, with a pleasant floral scent of lavender and essential oils, I enjoyed the application of it, and it didn’t overwhelm me in the morning.
Organic Day Cream retails at £13.50 for 30ml/£18 for 60ml.
All in all, I was so happy with the products I was sent. The eye cream has become a staple in my skincare system for sure now, and I really enjoyed the use of the nail conditioner and day cream. Trevarno’s products are all organic, cruelty free and the ingredients all are ethically and sustainability sourced. They also have product lines for children, men and specialist skin issues, so really a win for everyone.
