I've never really paid much attention to skin care until recently and i'm only just trying to figure out a good routine, so when I got the chance to test some products from SKN RG Advanced range it definitely couldn't have come at a better time.

I've been trying out these products for a little while now and so far they've been pretty good. They haven't caused me to break out and are, of course, cruelty-free. They arrived with a cute bag for storage, a cloth and a nifty little leaflet telling you how to use each product (which I promptly lost) and I'm a massive fan of the packaging really.

Flash Balm
I was just doing a price check on the SKN RG website and can't actually find this balm at the moment, but just in case it comes back in stock, I'll give you my opinion anyway. Along with being cruelty-free, this make-up remover is also vegan, which is a definite plus. The pump bottle is useful to help reduce wasting the product, especially since they're pretty pricey products judging by the other products on the website. It's strongly fragranced, which I'm still not completely sold on, but it does take off make makeup well, even my most stubborn mascara. 

Cellular Definition Toner
I'm assuming that this is similar to the Cellular Revitalising Toner on the SKN RG site, as the definition toner didn't seem to be there. It's £30 for 100ml which I personally think is a lot, but if you're not on a budget, this seems to be a really good toner. It's lightweight, absorbed into my skin easily and a little seemed to go a long way which is important when it's so expensive! It's highly fragranced like the Flesh Balm - not a bad smell, just strong. 

Advanced Brightening Moisturiser 
Honestly, I despise the smell of this. Since the products were all in the same range, I assumed they'd all have the same smell, but the Advanced Brightening Moisturiser just smells completely different to the rest and it's just a bit bizarre. As a moisturiser, it works well and is lightweight but it does cost £49.50/50ml - I'd much rather stick to my £2 Superdrug moisturiser. 

Eye Elixir 
I've never used an Eye Elixir before and this hasn't encouraged me to. It's not a bad product, I just haven't seen it do much for me personally. Maybe I'm using it wrong (this is where the leaflet I lost probably would have helped) or maybe I just need to give it more time, but for £65 for 30ml, I won't be rushing out to buy it again. 

Overall, my skin does feel better and softer after using all these products for a while, but the conflicting smells and ridiculously high price tags do put me off them quite a bit. If you're looking for a luxury product then these would probably be perfect for you, but as a student, I won't be forking out a huge chunk of my loan on these.
