You know those days when you want a little something on your skin but not too much? The ‘no makeup, makeup look’. Well Sarah Chapman Skinesis Skin Insurance is my ‘go to’ product for achieving that. On days like this I minimise the amount of products I use. I look for something on my skin that is light but gives some coverage and something to brighten my face a little, such as a high definition mascara (YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils or Maybelline Falsies). I’dd add a little balm, usually Dior Addict Lip Glow and that is my look completed. It leaves me feeling a little more ‘made up’ and awake than going completely makeup free but with minimal effort.
To achieve the look I want for my skin I tend to reach for a tinted moisturiser. Not only does this allow two steps in one i.e some coverage and hydration but also allows my skin to breathe. I’ve tried a number in the past but the one I keep going back to is Sarah Chapman Skinesis Skin Insurance.
Sarah Chapman is well known for her skin care. I adore her products and Skin Insurance is no exception. The featherweight formula applies beautifully to my skin. It is silky to the touch so it feels very luxurious. The formula absorbs quickly into my skin and doesn’t leave it feeling sticky, greasy or chalky. This product looks lovely when worn on it’s own but it also makes a really great base for makeup too. I have really loved the results when I’ve tried this.
The Sarah Champan Skinesis Skin Insurance is a daily moisturiser with SPF 30. It has a sheer tint that gives my skin a lovely, natural looking glow. It also has blurring technologies, smart light scattering powders and intelligent adaptive tints to even skin tone and gives skin a radiant post facial glow. The technologies also shield skin from UVA, UVB, thermal and infrared radiation as well as free radicals. Plus it has anti-ageing properties.
I love that this product is free of chemical nasties and it is so quick and easy to apply. After cleaning my face I simply apply 2-3 pumps of this to my face and neck. You can apply it over moisturiser if your skin needs an added boost of moisture but I haven’t found this necessary.
There is one thing I’m not fond of with the Skinensis though and that is the fragrance. It is said to have a subtle hint of jasmine, hyacinth & rose essential oils which sounds beautiful but it doesn’t smell floral at all to me. I can’t quite put my finger on what the scent is but I guess something more ‘fake’ and like plastic is the closest I can come up with. Sounds strange I know and maybe it’s my nose but it doesn’t smell how I would expect a skin product to. If it lingered for longer than just application it would totally put me off this product. Fortunately, that isn’t the case and I can see past the fragrance.
Overall i’ve been really impressed by this tinted moisturiser. It allows me to wear minimal makeup and still feel good. The light coverage feels nice on my skin but covers minor blemishes and evens my skin tone. It boosts my skin and provides radiance. It also has a formula to protect my skin too.
Compared to other tinted moisturisers on the market Sarah Chapman Skinesis is expensive so it isn’t a product I would necessary re-purchase straight away every time it runs out but I can imagine it is a product I would continue to come back to over several years. Currently priced at £49.00 you can purchase this product online on the Sarah Chapman website.
