If you follow me on social media, you might remember I attended an event by Polaar skin care last year. I had a great time at the event, and especially enjoy getting to make my on face scrub.
If you've never heard of Polaar, they are a very interesting brand. "Polaar’s adventure begins 30 years ago with a nice story. It is the story of a teenager, the son of two polar explorers, who embarks on the Vagabond, an icebreaker heading to the Far North , on a scientific mission. That was the moment when Daniel Kurbiel discovered the ability of arctic plants to survive in extreme conditions." The active ingredients are sourced from the Arctic, they are pure and contain no parabens, alcohol or mineral oils.
At the moment, I'm currently using a pure Polaar skin routine to get the maximum benefits of the products.
Arctic Cotton gentle scrub
This a gentle scrub that i've been using twice a week, however I find it gentle enough to use more often when I feel my skin needs it. The product comes in a thick cream formula and had tiny exfoliating beads that lightly buff the skin. The Pure Ice arctic cotton scrub has a light yet distinctive scent, which I find had to describe, but it fits very well with the name, as in an outdoor, cold, fresh scent (which sounds bizarre, but when you smell it you'll know what I mean)
After using the exfoliator, I follow with the moisturising gel, its very light weight (lighter than a traditional cream), however I find this to be more hydrating. It's non-greasy and soaks into the skin within seconds and drys matt which works perfectly has a make up base.
To finish off before applying make up, I use the Icy Magic - instant eye contour. This is applied via a cold roller ball which helps sooth and de-puff the under eye area. I find this particularly refreshing in summer, but its a great product to use all year round.
Polak is available from various pharmacies on the island.
