UXB Skincare – Review & Competition

If you are anything like me you rush a shower in the morning then wonder why your skin feels dry and tight, well it’s because showering strips the skin of natural oils and moisture leaving it feeling tight and dull. Well UXB shower cream is here to help. I have been reviewing the range and have a set to giveaway.UXB SkincareThey have designed a range of luxurious body washes formulated with mild cleansers, vitamin rich oils and active ingredients that feed the skin and lock in moisture while in the shower, because they know that the shower is the best place to nourish the skin and lock in moisture. You see, once you get it warm and damp your skin swells and gets porous. It is at this point that you have an opportunity to bathe the skin in nutrient rich oils and active ingredients that will penetrate deeper into the epidermis.

They have developed four shower creams to nourish common skin types; oily, dry, polluted and mature. I have been trying them out and have been very impressed.

Dry Skin – Frankincense & Argan Shower Cream

Vitamin E rich Argan and Avocado oils are combined with Tamanu oil to feed and soothe dry and ashy skin. Frankincense and black pepper essential oils warm and smooth damaged skin giving it a healthy glow. Glycerin combined with glyceryl oleate and stearic acid (naturally found in skin lipids) lock in the moisture and nutrients.

This is the first cream I tried first as my skin has been dreadfully dry recently. It smells lovely and really left my skin smoother from the first use. None of the shower creams foam very much, so that takes some getting used to, but you don’t need huge amounts. It is so lovely. UXB Skincare

Oily Skin – Brown Rice Milk & Raw Honey Shower Cream

Handmade rice milk, seasoned with dead sea salt provides gentle cleansing with antioxidant properties. The raw honey comes from local London bees and it has proven to have antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties that can help soothe blocked pores. A blend of low comedogenic oils including sweet almond, clary sage and evening primrose oil help moisturise and dilute existing sebum helping the skin feel less oily without drying out and going into oil production overdrive.

I love this simple shower cream, the natural scents and beautiful evening primrose oil have made all the difference to my skin. I thought I had dry skin, but it turns out I must have oily skin as using this has been a game changer for me. I only really tried it so I could say I had used them all but straight away the difference was noticeable. I love it.

Polluted Skin – Juniper & Açaí Berry Shower Cream

They have chosen some of nature’s most powerful antioxidants for this cream. Acai is better at mopping up damaging free radicals than other berry. Juniper is no slouch either, being used twice in this formulation, once in a handmade water infusion and also as an essential oil. They’ve also included black cumin seed oil to mop up stubborn pollutants and strengthen the skin.

Whilst I love the scent of this shower cream it’s probably the one I will get the least use out of, though I have decanted some into a travel bottle for when I go on holiday as I just know it will be perfect after a day’s travelling. Just refreshing and feeling really clean even after a flight and coach transfer. UXB Skincare

Mature Skin – Rosehip & Comfrey Shower Cream

Mature skin suffers from a few problems; it is thinner, drier, duller and has less collagen and hence the wrinkles. If you can keep that skin fed and moist, you delay the onset of the the signs of aging. This cream is designed to tackle each of these in turn. We include a triumvirate of Rose products. Rosehip to moisturise, reduce discolouration, rose water to plump and soothe the skin, and evening primrose oil to feed the skin with lots of gamma-Linolenic acid promoting skin turnover resulting in fresher glowing complexion.

At 34 I hope I don’t have mature skin yet but I have been using this shower cream anyway as the Rosehip and Juniper is my favourite of all the scents. Rose is always my go to scent, I find it calming and it makes my heart happy, so maybe my skin just can’t wait to be mature!

The bottles retail at £17.50 each but they are worth it, the quality ingredients and fact they work makes all the difference. No I’m not going to be able to afford to use it all the time but when my budget will stretch I will definitely be using UXB even I can only use it a few times a year.

I’m very pleased that I have a set of four bottles to giveaway so if you fancy winning just add your details to the Gleam App below.

Good luck xx
