A couple of months back, the lovely Japanese brand DHC launched a new range of skincare – Beauty Lift! I have to say right now, DHC is a brilliant brand that I think are massively under-rated in the UK.
The Beauty Lift range offers “ultra hydration”, for smoother skin and a lifted complexion. The products claim to be lightweight and calming, contrast to some anti-aging products on the market which are quite heavy. I have been using these products for the last two months and here are my thoughts…
Beauty Lift Lotion – £34, 145ml
This is an alcohol free toner, which contains oat kernel extract and peptides, which is soothing and preps the skin for moisture. Ordinarily I don’t use a toner as I find them quite drying, but this really is the opposite of that and its rather lovely. Its gentle enough to use on sensitive skin and it leaves my skin feeling refreshed but not at all tight as some toners tend to. I do like this but for me its not a must have, unlike some of the other products in the range.
Beauty Lift Essence – £35, 50ml
This is quite frankly my most favourite product from the range and one of the best serums I have ever used. A close contender to this is the serum from the DHC Resveratrol Range which is also very, very good. This really does deliver a fantastic injection of moisture in the skin, without it being too heavy or sticky. I think it’s the most hydrating serum I have ever used and its an absolute star of this range and my skin absolutely loves it. I can’t recommend it enough! If I don’t use this for 2-3 days I really notice the difference in my skin and lets just say, its not pretty!
Beauty Lift Milk – £34, 100ml
Like the Essence, I have been using this continually and its my second favourite out of these 4 products. It is very effective and leaves my skin smooth, very soft and nourished. It is not sticky and makes a lovely base for applying foundation. It is not the most hydrating moisturiser I have ever used but its well up there in the top 5. I am rather impressed and a little goes a long way with this beauty! After using it consistently for 2 months, I still have more than half a tube left, which I think is quite good value for money.
Beauty Lift Cream – £41, 50g
This is an intensive cream that is the ultimate pamper for the skin. It is very rich but interestingly not greasy or that heavy and though its not marketed as such, its essentially a night cream (IMO). I do enjoy using this cream but I feel that it’s a little more than my skin needs right now, but its something I would use religiously if I had dry skin or if I was 10 years older than I am now. In the mornings after I use this I wake up to plump and rested skin but personally I prefer to use a night oil than a cream like this – which is not a bad reflection of this cream, its just my preference.
Overall, this range gets a massive thumbs up from me. It really does what it claims to do – the level of hydration you get from these is awesome, but one thing to bear in mind is that I don’t have dry skin. I have moderately oily/normal skin but considering I started using this when the weather was much colder and my skin was suffering from dryness – these products REALLY delivered. My skin is a lot more hydrated and as a result less oily overall as my body isnt overcompensating and producing more oil. On top of that my skin is more plump and looks well rested. I cant say that fine lines have disappeared – I wish!! BUT they have diminished somewhat so I am happy about that. Even as the weather has warmed up, I have continued to use these as they are just FABULOUS! I will be extremely sad when the Essence and the Milk run out but I would re-purchase those in a heart beat as my skin has been responding so well to them in the last two months.
You can buy these products online here but I would love to see them more readily accessible in UK stores. I hope in the future you can mozie on down to your local Debenhams or House of Fraser and be able to fill your boots with DHC goodies (*FYI – I do not mean literally….I am not advocating shop lifting! Haha)
Have you tried this range from DHC? What do you think of the sound of these? Drop me a line and let me know!
Thanks for reading 🙂
P.S – this post contains *PR samples, however my reviews are always honest and my thoughts are my own You can trust me on that, but you cant trust me not to steal your blusher if I like it!
