The Right Skin Care for Every Age | ARK Age Aware Skincare

As I’ve gotten older I’ve started to notice changes to my skin (especially postpartum). For years, I used the same products over and over, but I’ve found that as my skin changes I need to adapt the products that I use. As we age our hormones shift which causes significant changes in which the body functions, including your skin. To look flawless and fierce at every age, there are skincare products to address to the amount of candles on our birthday cake. 😉

ARK Skincare is an award winning British based company (featured in Elle and Glamour and many other magazines) that has perfected their products to provide unique skin treatments for every age. ARK Skincare has products that are age targeted into the following age segments: 20s, 30s-40s, and 50s upwards. The result is a highly effective age-specific skin care regimen for every individual that nourishes, protects, defends and defy the affects of aging of our skin.

For the purposes of this review, I was sent ARK Age Defend Replenishing Moisturiser and Skin Perfector Hydration Injection Masque from BrandBacker.  The Replenishing moisturizer is formulated for those of us in our 30’s and 40’s and the Hydration Injection Masque can be used for all ages.

The Age Defend line is specially formulated for your 30’s and 40’s:

During this phase, our skin is starting to show signs of aging as fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear and some of us notice sensitivity as we encounter more external and internal stresses. It’s time to defend the integrity of the skin with vital nutrients and greater antioxidant protection.

Age Defend boosts elasticity and minimizes irritation for a calm, supple complexion.

Age Defend Replenishing Moisturiser (1.7 oz at $70)is thick and supple to apply. It rubs in easily without leaving a greasy residue or appearance. This best selling moisturizer with co-enzyme Q10, moisturizing agents shea butter and olive oil and is packed with peptides to smooth out the appearance of wrinkles and vanish early signs of aging. I’ve been applying this in the morning (after using MyChelle Perfect C Serum) and in the evening (after use of Pixi Toner and MyChelle Retinal Serum). I feel as though my skin is more supple and nourished skin without any signs of irritation or breakouts (some moisturizers make me break out a bit).

The Skin Perfector Hydration Injection Masque (2.5 oz at $70) is unique compared to other masks because it is left on the skin for varying times, depending on your age. This intense multivitamin hydration injection masque quenches skin and restores vibrancy. Essential vitamins for skin health (Vitamin A, B5, C and E) are paired with Hyaluronic Acid Booster, Sugar Beet and Abyssinian Oil to intensely nourish skin for more youthful, smooth and glowing skin.

For my age bracket, I left the masque on my skin for 10 minutes and then washed off with a warm cloth. It has a very pleasant scent and left my skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth. I’ve been suffering from lots of dry skin with being outside so much this hot summer. It definitely helped alleviate my dryness. There is an option to leave the mask on overnight for an intensive treatment and I definitely plan to do this sometime in the near future.

    This stuff looks cool. I am just now (34) starting to see little wrinkles and am so bad about my own skincare … I’ve got to get better. I had used some of the SK-II from BzzAgent, but it’s so expensive that I can’t justify purchasing it on my own. Are you good about the routine of USING the skincare once you have it? How?

      I seriously struggled with being consistent with using skincare in the past. I’ve been noticing more and more fine lines so I made it a goal to start caring of myself better too. Most nights I would be so tired by the time that bedtime hit that I didn’t want to do anything. I try to make it as easy & quick as possible by using wipes to clean my face (and it’s quieter too to not wake baby next door), and then just slap on some serum and moisturizer. As for the masks…I usually do them when I’m taking a bath (I try to take a long bath once a week to unwind) and once or twice weekly helps a lot with moisturizing. In the mornings, I mix moisturizer with my foundation…I only want a little coverage to even it out so this is perfect for me. I go simple otherwise it doesn’t happen.

      Some products are pricey, but I will admit that I see results with them. It helps that I often am not paying for them out of pocket because of blogging. I think I would have a tougher time paying the high prices out of my own pocket, even when I love the products. If you ever want to do any beauty and skin care reviews, message me. I can pass along some great programs. 🙂

    Turning 30 forced my into skincare. Haha. I have always used sunscreen but other than that… So I love finding new stuff that other people swear by.

    I’m in my 30’s and really need to take time and take care of my skin.

    Is it strange that the name Ark makes me feel safe. You are right about skin care. I heard at 21 I should of been using night cream since 18 lol I like to think I have some sort of advantage since I don’t wear makeup as far as my skins longevity.
