Neutral Skincare: a review

For the last few weeks I’ve been testing out Neutral Sensitive Skin range in order to combat the every day stresses of work, home and wedding planning.

Neutral 0% was born 25 years ago in Scandinavia to create everyday products that respect people’s skin. Their product range includes:

Face Care

Household

Skin Care

Baby Care

& Feminine Hygiene

My first impressions of the packaging were great, I loved that it was simple and had their key selling points on the front of the product themselves. If you have sensitive skin like I do, looking for paraben free or alcohol free products can be time-consuming in stores, so it’s great to see this clearly labelled on a product.

I started testing the products out straight away and tried the face wash, the skin tonic and the intensive repair cream for dry skin. My skin has been a nightmare lately with breakouts on my skin and forehead but a really dry area around my nose. I liked that this moisturiser left my skin extremely hydrated for a long period and made a great primer before applying my foundation.

I also really liked the skin tonic and found it soothing on my skin when having breakouts and a great way to make sure I got all makeup off my skin. I did like the face wash but actually didn’t see any change in my skin after a few weeks of usage. It’s very gentle on my skin but as my skin started looking worse not better, I decided it wasn’t for me after all.

The main benefits of this brand is their commitment to caring for skin hence their baby care range. I definitely like the products I tried but think if it came down to re-purchasing, I would only buy the cream again rather than the other two products. My review is not bible remember so what does/doesn’t work for me, might be ideal for someone else and I would also suggest trying things yourself. The great thing about this range is they are really affordable so if you did give it a go, it wouldn’t break the bank if it wasn’t ideal.

Did you manage Dry January?

Before Christmas, I vowed to do Dry January as I had done for the last 2 years. Needless to say it started off well after a late night on New Years eve and it seemed easy for once.

Then I fell off the wagon one Saturday night. Yes I know what that sounds like and No I am not an alcoholic, but we had a catch up with friends and several bottles of wine later, I was well and truly a bit drunk.

After that I went back to my Dry ways and stayed away from alcohol for the rest of the month ashamed of my little mishap. Now it definitely wasn’t easy and there were night’s when I got home from work and was desperate for a glass of wine, but I stayed away and am proud of my resistance from temptation.

It did get me thinking about substitutes for our favourite alcoholic beverages and when Eisberg sent me some alcohol free goodies, it felt like fate.

I received a bottle of Eisberg’s Sauvignon Blanc and a huge bottle of their Sparkling Blanc and both of them tasted amazing.

They definitely taste non alcoholic but are both tasty and refreshing which I liked a lot. I would definitely buy them both again in the future and even my fiancé thought they tasted alright (he is a red wine drinker anyway).

The main positives of going for these options is they are light in calories as well as alcohol free meaning you don’t feel guilty about drinking them like you might with fizzy pop. I think these would be great for someone doing a dry month or trying to cut alcohol during the week or even someone who is pregnant and feels like they would like a drink to enjoy that still looks like alcohol.

So if you’re looking for a healthier alternative to the usual wine or alcoholic beverages then check Eisberg’s full range out on their website or in your local supermarket.
