AD Skin Synergy Skincare - Face the Future Naturally

AD Skin Synergy Cleansing Balm, Oil & Moisturiser

AD Skin Synergy Skincare is one of the best kept natural beauty secrets along with a couple of others I will share with you in future posts!
Personally I prefer to use as natural and organic skincare, as possible on my skin, not only because I feel its better for me, but simply because my skin can be a little temperamental at times and I feel it responds better to natural skincare.

AD Skin Synergy
What the brands says :-
AD skin synergy was created as a serious natural and organic skincare brand to help women, and men, whatever their skin type as the ageing process takes place; to balance the skin, give younger looking skin, whatever your age, and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Sound Pretty Good? ......
.... Actually is really is!

I have used this skincare for around 6 months now and it is amazing, not only does it tick all the boxes when it comes to the quality of their potent natural ingredients,  but their products are truly 100% natural and contain no petrochemicals, no parabens and no artificial perfumes.
They only currently have four products in the range, so it's not a complicated routine, great if you haven't got the time or inclination to faff around with eight products, when you already late for work!

The routine consists of the Essential Cleansing Balm, Radiant Skin Moisturiser, Anti Ageing Eye Cream and Nourishing Night Treatment Oil, that's it.
I personally do add in a toner and a morning facial oil and my daily routine changes, in terms of products depending on what my skin is doing, but the AD Skin Synergy products are one of my staples.

OK lets get down to basics
AD Skin Synergy Essential Cleansing Balm

AD Skin Synergy Cleansing Balm Spread across Skin.

 The Essential Cleansing Balm is a gorgeous, as you might expect, balm, out of its 100% natural ingredients, 95% are organic. WOW!
The balm comes with a little spatula, which pleases me as I really don't like putting my fingers into pots, and unlike some other cleansing balms that you have to have muscles like Garth to even extract from the pot, this is sooo meltingly soft.
It is a pleasure to use, it smells divine, all the natural oils combined are a feast for the senses, and it removes everything, make up is dissolved away, even eye make up comes off, no need to rub, I usually apply it to the eye area and lashes first and let it sit on there while I massage the rest of my face and neck, then remove it last with warm water and either the muslin cloth that comes with the balm, or a simple good old fashioned face flannel!
Your skin feels incredibly clean and super soft afterwards, it really is treating the skin right from the start of your routine.

The Radiant moisturiser is also superb, gain smells gorgeous and  it is packed full of beautiful ingredients such as organic rosehip, calendula, shea butter, aloe vera, ylang ylang, neroli to name but a few.
You only need a very small amount to moisturise your face and neck, it absorbs quickly and leaves your skin soft and supple and over time your skin does take on a clarity and a healthy glow.
The only thing I will say is if you use too much of this then it will sit on the skin and not absorb in, if this happens then you simply need to reduce the quantity you are using.
I have normal/combination skin and I use about couple of pea sized amounts for my face and neck but everyone's skin is different.

AD Skin Synergy Night Treatment Facial Oil

Facial Oil with Pump

The Night Treatment Oil is the 'piste de resistance' in the AD Synergy range, if you choose only one thing to try then this has to be it!
The first thing I adore about the oil is the fact it has a pump dispenser,  thank you AD Synergy,  it dispenses the exact amount you need and there is no mess, and no fear you are going to loose the whole lot if you accidentally knock it over. It is also very well factory sealed, so the oil is not exposed to the air, unlike other oils can be.
The oil as simply gorgeous I cannot express enough how fabulous it is, jam packed with essential oils to hydrate and condition your skin over night.
The oil feels very refined on the skin and sinks in immediately to leave a velvety feel,  your skin feels and looks plump and soft in the morning.
The oil has also helped to regulate my skins natural oil production on my oily 'T' zone areas to bring them more into balance.
I use two pumps for my face and neck, any more is too much, and as you can see from the bottle 6 months of use on 3-4 nights a week has barely scratched the surface so it is very economical.
If you find night creams too much for your skin then this oil could be the answer, all of the hydration and treatment aspects without the heaviness of a cream.
Ad Skin Synergy Anti Ageing Eye Cream
Although I use and adore this eye cream, I have currently run out of it so can't show you any photos of it.
It is however one of the best eye creams I have used that is naturally based,  Ad Synergy claim that it has been scientifically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by 40% and increase hydration by 70% in 30 minutes.
Now I haven't done any 'scientific testing' on my fine lines around my eyes,  but I certainly feel that it has improved the look and texture of my skin and my fine lines do look less pronounced and softened.
My make up is staying on better under the eye area and isn't looking as 'dry' by the end of the day.
It has impressed me so much that I have ordered another tube of it, which to be honest I rarely do with eye creams as they usually fall short, there is only one other brand, Pai Echium Eye Cream that is up there on my eye creams that actually work list!
The cream comes in a tube that has unique applicator, under the cap there are three metal rollerballs that the cream is dispensed through, you then massage the cream using the rollerballs straight onto the eye contour.
I personally like to just finish off by using my ring finger to tap the cream in fully, and I pop any excess left onto my eyelid as well, I've had no problems doing this but of course this might not be suitable for your eyes.
 Described as a cream but I think it has more of a balm type texture, which I think is why it it is more moisturising than most, it still absorbs well and you only need a very small amount so very economical.
I certainly would give this one a go if you are looking for a 100% natural eye cream that, in my opinion, actually does work to hydrate and reduce those naughty wrinkles!
