Skyn Iceland, the cult favorite of people with stressed skin (that would be 99% of the population), is on a mission. Their mission is simply to help you look and feel better by aiding your epidermis in balancing itself and managing the stress it’s constantly under with environmental and hormonal factors that most endure on a daily basis.
The inspiration came when the company’s founder, Sarah Kugelman, traveled to Iceland to find respite for her own chronic stress. She was amazed by the unspoiled beauty and nature – as well as the unique and special plants and water that comes from the country. She began to research, with the help of a well-educated team, the special botany of Iceland and what might be used in a future product line. And, after much work, Skyn Iceland came to fruition. The line is 100% vegan, not tested on animals and free of dyes, parabens and sulfates.
Today, several years later, Skyn Iceland offers specific and unique products to target various skin issues. Here is a list of my favorites:
For congested skin, there’s the Glacial Face Wash which is formulated with pure glacial water. What I love about this product is that a little goes a very long way. Just a dab and there’s enough of the foaming cleanser to sweep away impurities from your face and neck.
To exfoliate, I love the Nordic Skin Peel which is packaged conveniently in individually soaked pads. Each pad contains lactic acid and fruit enzymes to gently slough and eat away dead, flaky skin. Your complexion will be on its way to recovery after just one use.
On those mornings when you’ve had a long and sleepless night, your eyes are the first to show the trauma. Skyn’s Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels adhere to your under-eye area gently and instantly cool and reduce the puffiness – to help you look like you slept more than four hours. The magic lies in the hydrolyzed elastin, ginko biloba leaf extract and coenzyme Q10. You’ll never want to travel without these little miracles again.
This is just a smattering of what the company has to offer. Overall, Skyn is an impressive brand. It’s not easy to find products that are both unique and effective in the marketplace – and you won’t find the majority of Skyn’s ingredients in your run of the mill beauty and grooming products.
