I Heart Sampar Skincare

I was invited to the launch of the Parisian Skincare brand Sampar but sadly couldn’t attend. The lovely Saraan who is the PR for the brand  sent me some of the products to try out. So here is a little information on the brand:

Sampar was developed in 2004 and is the pioneer of Urban Skincare. The brands ambition is to awaken the sleeping beauty in every woman, uncovering and revealing her natural allure.

Its about “smart skin” the skin is an intelligent organ, capable of adapting to its environment. As we get older (like me) our skin becomes sensitive, dull, marked and unbalanced. The Sampar skincare’s mission is to help reset the skin’s intelligent response system and to support its natural healing actions. The second part to Sampar is “smart skin” with products enriched in the brand’s exclusive complex, Urban Advance, its innovative formulas act at the heart of cells to ” wake up” and reactivate the skin’s vital functions.

I received 2 products the  So Much to Dew Midnight Mask and the 3 Day Weekend Moisturiser. Here is a little info on the products and what I thought:

Mask: The mask mimics the skin’s origional hydrating film and it replenishes the skin and soaks in freshness within the first hour of applying. The key ingredients are Smart Hydrating Complex which helps restore skin’s moisturistaion, Hyaluronic Acid Capsules which diffuses hydration in depth, toning and replenishing the skin and lastly the Urban Advance Complex which you can see in the diagram above. The  mask is applied at night before you go to sleep and stays on until you wash off in the morning. Its applied by using the brush to apply the product all over your face. I have been using this product the last 2 weeks and I absoloutely love it. My skin feels amazing in the morning once I have washed it off, so smooth and  glowing so that is a big plus for me. Its so light on the skin and for someone like me who has sensitive skin it doesn’t irritate me. Definitely will continue using this product.

3 Day Weekend: This product is a moisturiser with tan activator and extender properties that gives the skin a breath of fresh air. Its fresh moisturising gel stimulates the skin’s natural melanin which is the pigment for tanning to give a sun kissed look without sun all year long. The product has recently been improved promising 24 hour moisturisation and a 32% increase in melanin levels. The key ingredients are Promelanotrope Peptides that boost the skin’s melanin, SSP which acts a shield to protect skin agaist harmful UV rays, Hydrocomplex repairs and reinforces the skin and the Urban Advance Complex. I have been using this moisturiser every day firstly its very light on the skin and leaves skin feeling really fresh and soft. I did have a little tan since starting it but what I can say my tan has stayed for the last 2 weeks which is pretty impressive and I even went out without foundation on yesterday (unheard of for me).
