Complete skincare routine with Amperna

A new skincare brand landed on my doorstep recently and they were generous enough to give me the entire skincare system to trial out.

Amperna are an ethical skincare brand that create simple but effective products to rebalance your skin. They are an Australian made and owned brand, they don't test on animals and their products are perfect for those with sensitive skin. The products contain only the necessary and active ingredients your skin needs to look its best including a probiotic complex, glycolic acid and vitamins B and C.

Ultra Gentle Soothing Cleanser
This cleanser has a gel formula that is activated when it comes into contact with water. It turns into a foam as you lather it on your face and (as the name suggests) has a gentle balance of ingredients so your skin won't be irritated and it won't upset the pH levels of your skin. It also contains sage and cucumber extracts which will help to soothe and calm your skin if it is already irritated and is great if you have any skin issues such as dermatitis, rosacea, acne or eczema. I don't wear much makeup these days but I found when I do it helps to remove most of it and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean without feeling overly dry. The product does have a bit of a natural scent that is a little strong, which may be off-putting for those who don't like scents.

Pro+ Vitamin C Hyaluronic Serum
Next step is serum (something I can't live without anymore) and Amperna have two to choose from. First is the Pro+ Vitamin C Hyaluronic Serum; if you need something to help hydrate your skin, give this stuff a go. While its not super thick, it takes a little longer to sink into your skin - so hold off a minute after applying before adding anything else to your face. The serum contains high levels of hyaluronic acid and antioxidants which help to correct uneven skin tone, dullness, winkles and fine lines. As hydrating as it feels, I still like to follow this one with some moisturiser (still to come).

Probiotic+ DS Soothing Serum
The other serum available is the Probiotic+ DS Soothing Serum. This one has a more creamer formula and I found it sinks a bit quicker into the skin than the previous serum. With the same scent also, this serum is really great for soothing and calming irritated skin. It contains copper and zinc gluconates which help to stop bacteria from spreading on the skin (perfect for those with acne) and help to replenish your skin barrier. It has also been tested on those who have rosacea redness and was found to have great positive results.

Lightweight Soothing + Emulsion
It's time to moisturise - and there's another two options to choose from. First the lightweight soothing + emulsion; I find this product to be a tad heavy for something that is called lightweight, but that said it did sink into my skin fairly quickly, so if you're needing a good hydration hit in the morning, this is perfect and it didn't leave me feeling oily or shiny which is always  plus. This moisturiser contains ceramides, hyaluronic acid, emollients and a probiotic to help give your skin nourishing hydration and protect it against environmental damage during the day.

10% Pro+ Resurfacing Lotion
Last but certainly not least is the Pro+ Resurfacing Lotion. This product contains 10% glycolic acid which helps to very, very gently exfoliant your skin to improve its texture, while the antioxidants help to calm any redness. This product is the first of its kind; a chemical exfoliant that is specifically for sensitive skin. This moisturiser also does have a bit of a different scent; it's more something I expect a pharmaceutical product to smell like, but that said as soon as it sinks into the skin the scent all but disappears.
