What we tried: Florence By Mills Skincare.
Millie Bobby Brown is one busy teen. The actress not only has loads of partnerships with cool brands like Converse and Pandora, but she’s also got her own beauty and skincare range. The Florence By Mills range consists of loads of eye, lip and face beauty products, but also a range of gentle, teen-skin-friendly skincare! And we just had to give it a go. Here’s what we tried:
Clean Magic Face Wash (€16)
Look Alive Eye Balm (€21)
What they are:
The Clean Magic face wash is a dewy, creamy wash that cleans and rejuvenates your face if it’s feeling dry or neglected. It’s got ferulic acid, a plant-based antioxidant that fights environmental nasties like smog. A balancing mix of seaweed, ivy, lemon, and sage controls excess oil so our pores stay baggage-free. It gets rid of makeup, dirt, and oil.
The Look Alive eye balm helps us look alive! The cooling metal tip helps de-puff while vitamin B12, snow mushroom, malachite extract and a peptide blend provide a super-charged rush for tired eyes! Great for those tricky Monday mornings.
How to use:
Face wash: Apply the face wash by massaging it onto wet skin in circular motions all over your face (avoid the eyes of course!). Then gently wash off with a face cloth.
Eye balm: For the eye balm, simply squeeze out a small amount and use the metal tip to apply under the eyes. Use your ring finger to gently pat it in.
What we thought:
The face wash is gentle and has a gorge natural smell of cucumber and rose. It’s great if your face is feeling a bit tight or if you’re starting out your skincare routine, it’s got loads of natural ingredients, so if you’re sensitive, it might be a good one to try. It doesn’t sting or feel too strong on the skin and leaves your skin feeling soft and clear. It is PERFECT for those of us who don’t wear too much makeup on a daily basis and want to remove it in a gentle way. I’d recommend using a cleaning mitt or face cloth to remove it, rather than tissue – which it says on the box. It just makes for a more even removal and can feel a bit softer on your skin for an all-found gentle experience. I found it really easy to apply and spreadable, so you don’t need to use too much of it. Would buy again.
The eye balm feels lovely and cool on the skin with its curved metal tip, especially if you’re feeling tired. Be careful not to use too much product as you only need a small amount to spread all around your under eye. If you’re a concealer fan, it’s a great alternative if you’re looking to wear less makeup (or your school doesn’t allow makeup) but you still want to brighten up that area.
You can pick up Florence By Mills products in Boots.
