We all know that a good skincare routine is key for any situation whether it be a bare face or a full glam look. Every girl craves a clear, flawless complexion so they can always look and feel their absolute best but skincare is not quite as easy as it seems.
I have been climbing a giant skincare mountain over the past few months, testing out brand after brand and constantly being underwhelmed. There were SO many products I wanted to love (especially the really popular ones) but nothing had even made a blip on my radar. Well, nothing up until I bit the bullet and decided to enter the world of Sunday Riley.
Sunday Riley is an innovative brand that hails from the UK. It is known for its smart high-performance skincare that focuses on fast results with a long-term payoff. Their products have a bit of a cult following and it seems that they work miracles for each and every consumer.
Sunday Riley claims to have found the perfect union between science and nature by specializing in “Green Technology” a transformative method that mixes advanced active ingredients and purified botanicals in an ultra-effective cocktail.
I have had my eye on a few of their cult-classic products for the longest time but along with good ingredients and an effective formula comes a high price tag that I just couldn’t swallow.
The new #SquadGoals Skincare Essentials Kit ($110 CAD/$90 USD) combines 4 of their top bestsellers in one handy kit at a much more reasonable price and it is the PERFECT way to test out the brand for yourself.
The #SquadGoals Kit contains a carefully curated regime intended to brighten, exfoliate and hydrate deep down. It includes the Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser (1oz – $63 alone), the Luna Sleeping Night Oil (0.25oz – $131 alone), the Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream (0.5oz – $85 alone), and the Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment (0.5oz – $147 alone).
This routine combines the power of retinol, lactic acid (AHA’s), hyaluronic acid and brightening alpha-arbutin with select botanicals to improve the look and texture of skin (dullness, uneven tone, enlarged pores), fight hyperpigmentation, work against visible signs of aging (fine lines, spots and wrinkles) and prevent dehydration. Together all four products work to completely balance your skin and correct any issues you may have.
The Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser – washes away pore-clogging debris and oil to deep clean and balance skin with French Green Clay and Morrocan Rhassoul Clay. Works wonders but doesn’t strip the skin of moisture.
The Luna Sleeping Night Oil – is a deep blue oil (turns clear on contact) that features a Trans-Retinoic Acid Ester Complex to fight wrinkles and texture as well as Blue Tansy and German Chamomile to calm and soothe skin.
The Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream – offers an intense water drench with two forms of hyaluronic acid (draws water into the skin) and tamarind extract for visibly plumped and hydrated skin. Papaya Enzymes smooth and exfoliate while Alpha-Arbutin and White Bird Of Paradise diminish hyperpigmentation and illuminate the skin.
The Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment – immediately exfoliates dull, pore-clogging dead skin cells with purified Lactic Acid to reveal fresher, smoother skin while licorice brightens.
With daily use (I’ve been using it for two weeks) they wipe away all of your dead skin, clogged pores, and rough texture to reveal glowing perfected skin. The results are out of this world and probably the fastest and most obvious results that I have ever experienced. My skin has never looked or felt better and I have never received as many compliments as I have over the last couple of weeks.
If you are trying to find a gift for a skincare lover or even if you just want to give Sunday Riley a try, the #SquadGoals Kit is the perfect option! I will definitely be buying the full sized products as soon as I run out because my skincare life is changed for good.
