The wonderful people at +Rehab London (click here to check them out) heard of my husbands extremely sensitive skin and decided to rise to the challenge and send some products for us to review. My husband suffers with Rosacea on his cheeks and nose area and also Psoriasis at the base of his hairline due to his scalp. Usually the only products that he is able to use are medicated and prescribed from the GP. Being able to use anything other than those was a distant dream really. Definitely, he would never think to find anything more specific than a medicated wash and some soothing gel that are on repeat prescription.
I don’t want to write this review for my husband really as the real review has been captured in his words and by the video camera. I will summarise though as I myself was so impressed.
James very rarely shaves, it’s extra irritation that he just can’t be bothered with. When he does he dry shaves with a clipper so never really achieves a close shave which would be better for his work life on those days he needs to attend court. When he does try and shave closely he usually is full of red patches and cuts as his skin is just so sensitive. Enter the ‘Argan Oil Shaving Gel‘ that +Rehab London sent to us, it really did work wonders. You can see James’ shocked reaction as he runs the razor through smoothly first time.
James would definitely never dare try an exfoliator unless it was prescribed, well, saying that, he once did because I suggested it may help, before he had a diagnosis from a facialist and GP, it didn’t have great results – oops! The ‘Scrub Up Daily Detox‘ was brilliant, he said his skin felt smooth afterwards and refreshed, there was absolutely NO redness. I’m not being dramatic here, this feels like nothing short of a miracle after seeing how sensitive his skin is and how it flares up to everything.
With the ‘Calm Balm‘, ‘Shine Free‘ and ‘Revive Survive‘ I wasn’t expecting such negative reactions, but even still I was pleasantly surprised. James was really impressed and he’s kept up the regime for the past two days post review, which is extremely unlike his dyspraxic self so he must’ve decided it works well and like the results or he just simply would not bother.
As his wife I am just so pleased that he felt pampered, that these luxury products are compelling him to keep up with a skin regime that makes him feel nice and more confident about himself, although he probably wouldn’t admit that, as to him they’re just ‘beauty products’ but I think the guys and gals at Rehab London may have made a convert out of him. I also have to point out that they smell delicious, his skin feels so smooth, and it makes kisses and cuddles even more special if that’s possible *winks*.
Don’t take my word for it though, please watch James’ Review on our YouTube channel or by pressing play below.
These products are certainly not cheap, but they are also extremely affordable for what they are, ranging from just under £10 to around £20 per item. We’re yet to see how long they will last, but with the easy pump on the moisturisers it’s likely to not get spilled or overused so we’ll be expecting at least 4 months from those and maybe need to replenish the scrub before then.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ebThJUjoco]
