AR457 Luxury French Argan Skincare Range Review

I don’t like experiments when it comes to my face, so I choose the products I use carefully and rarely agree to try new skincare products for the feature, let a lot several new products.

But I’ve decided to take the opportunity and try AR457 range, because  this brand seemed like an amazing one and because my Twitter friend who swears by it.

What is AR457?  It is an luxury French skincare, pioneer in Argan oil skincare.

The name stands for:

  • 4 tocopherols, natural antioxidants that prevent the skin’s ageing process and the formation of wrinkles.
  • 5 phytosterols that revitalize the skin and regenerate cells
  • 7 biomolecules with healing, filtering, revitalizing, protective and disinfectant properties

 I have several products to show you:

Well-Being Care [dwlb], €58

This is a day cream with  a  sun protection, as the brand calls it “complex solar filter Well-Being Care [dwlb]”

I actually really like it and already used about half of  the jar, as I find that this cream works great for my dry and sensitive skin. It smells really nice, feels light, yet moisturizing and nourishing. My skin is smooth and supple afterwards and it works great under my makeup. Just don’t put the foundation straight away, obviously.

It doesn’t clog my pores and doesn’t make me break out.

Elixir Metaserum [lyf]€ 88

This is quite a thick  and very moisturizing serum. Works great underneath the cream, especially in colder months when you need that extra care!  I do find it hydrating, as  promised, as it did help to battle the tightness and dryness. The key ingredients are avant-garde seaweed extract, Padina Pavonica which should increase the skin’s ability to renew itself by multiplying hydrophilic agents.

Unfortunately, I have just noticed that this serum contains mineral oil…

Renewing argan Scrub [peel], €49

I rarely use  actual scrubs these days, as I prefer enzyme peels, but sometimes I do give scrub a go!

And this one did not disappoint, it is  smoothing  (micro-pulverized Argan nuts) and polishing (almost like like a sand paper, but in a good way, and I  personally  like that feeling ), without  stressing or irritating my skin. It leaves my face exfoliated and  prepared it for the next step.

Balancing & Refining Mask [eq-M], €49

A good cleansing mask is a must have, in my opinion. And this one is a good one! It cleanses and purifies the skin, without stripping it and leaving it tight and itchy, as some masks can do.

I find the formula to be gentle, yet effective.  The skin feels really soft and smooth afterwards and I definitely enjoy it! This have to be my second favourite product, besides the cream.

Regenerating Care [ny-t] , € 68

“Restores the natural balance of your skin, and brings back its youth and radiance.” It should rejuvenate,  protect, moisturize  the skin and bring back the radiance.

Somehow I forgot that I’ve had a sample of this product among other things, so I’ve used it only twice at night time. And so far, so good. I definitely loved the state of my skin the morning after. I hope that it will help with some minor scars that I have after several nasty spots I had recently.

Overall, I was very happy with the selection of products I was given to try and will consider getting something else in the future. Maybe their eye cream?

This is a small, carefully selected range, so there are mot that many products. There are seven more products to choose from: SKIN CLEANSER [dmkr], SILKY BODY OIL [hcor], LONG LASTING EYE CONTOUR [LOOK],REGENERATING CARE [ny-t],SPECIAL EVENT DUET [lyf+look], CELLULITE & SLIMMING CONTROL CARE |ctrl|, REDEFINING & FIRMING CARE |backup|

You can  get these products from Look Fantastic.
