One of the brands I discovered in 2014 was S5 Skincare, which creates organic cosmeceuticals. Now that I’ve tried another product, I am truly sold.
The S5 Balance Fluid is a face moisturiser that has anti-ageing properties as well as anti-blemish ones, which for me, is the perfect combination.
As the name says, it is extremely fluid and light, almost runny, spreading very well on skin – a little bit goes a long way – and absorbing very quickly.
It has that fresh smell of its alpine elements. My skin, which is quite particular, really likes it.
I’ve adopted a new skin regime in the past months, in order to tackle my breakouts and this moisturiser is part of it (as well as the S5 Purity Serum) and have noticed a visible improvement in overall texture and look.
It contains alpine epilobium fleisheri, which helps reduce oil and sebum, laminara ockroleuka, a seaweed extract targeting mainly inflammation, arctic rhodiola, which helps skin adapt to stress and consume oxygen and low molecular weight natural hyaluronic acid, which helps us keep that moisture in!
This product is 99% natural and certified organic and the lady behind it, whom I had the pleasure to meet, is very lovely and genuinely passionate about tackling skin concerns that haunt so many of us (especially me!) in the best, most natural way possible.
