I'm one of those people who claims to care more about the effects of skincare than the packaging or experience of using it - and I DO - but hands up, I can't deny the absolute pleasure of finding all of the above rolled into one. I've been pretty smitten by my first experience of Kypris skincare, a luxe botanical brand presented in the most exquisite packaging.
Kypris Cleanser Concentrate is a light gel cream cleanser with 30 (!!!) active ingredients including moringa, prickly pear and probiotics. I use this after makeup removal or as a morning cleanse. It almost melts on contact with my skin and feels light and refreshing, yet doesn't disappear when massaged in. The texture is unlike any other I've tried and rinses off easily leaving my skin looking brighter and feeling calm.
Kypris Heliotropic Pot of Shade is applied over moisturiser to prime skin for foundation, while protecting with a mineral-based broad spectrum SPF30. It leaves my skin feeling plumped and dewy and makeup applies beautifully on top. When using this I need way less foundation and find that my makeup lasts longer rather being sucked into my often dehydrated skin. If you struggle to keep using sunscreen over the Winter months, this will convince you. It's sold out in most places but I've tracked it down here.
Kypris skincare is by no means cheap, but the quality of ingredients, effectiveness and integrity behind the brand have seriously impressed me. If you're looking for truly natural, organic products that actually deliver, this is a great place to start. The full range is now available in the UK at Selfridges and Cult Beauty.
