Review: Pai Skincare Samples

9:00 am

Pai Skincare have always been a brand that appealed to me before I even tried any of their products. They specialise in organic skincare especially for sensitive skin, with ingredients lists written in simple English so everyone can see just what they're putting onto their skin. When I saw on their website that they offered a trial pack of 6 of their products for a mere £8, I couldn't say no. Here are the products involved in the cute little set, and my initial thoughts after giving them a whirl.

This product boasts it will leave skin soft and replenished as well as remove eye makeup, whilst still being suitable for sensitive skin types. I can only agree with this statement, as this creamy cleanser easily glides over skin like a thick moisturiser leaving you glowing and feeling incredibly fresh. The scent isn't overpowering and the product definitely didn't irritate my skin in any way, making it feel new and plump to the touch. I would say this would be suitable for all skin types as it doesn't strip or make you feel coated in product.

This day cream is said to be most suitable for dry sensitive skin, free from any drying products and able to restore softness to even the driest of skin. I managed to get two or three uses from this tiny pot so it shows how far this product can go. My skin afterwards did feel very hydrated and the product was the perfect lightness for a day cream. Again, this product had a gorgeous scent but wasn't overwhelming. 

I wouldn't really say I was in the direct need for this aging-skin product but I did end up using the whole pot because of how moisturising it felt on my skin, a common theme for all of these products!

This is probably my favourite product from this selection as I'm a big fan of exfoliators and the feeling they give your skin after use. This one was no exception. It contains tiny micro-spheres to polish skin and remove any dead skin cells that are present there, but without leaving your skin feeling stripped or scrubbed within an edge of its life. The one word I can think of to describe the feeling it gives is 'buffed'. I'll definitely be purchasing this full-size in the future. 

Now, this product really is calming. I used it this morning and my face feels absolutely baby soft, fresh and plumped. Designed mainly to get rid of redness, I'm not the perfect person to give a review of those effects, but from the feeling it gives my skin I can guess that its coolness would reduce any irritated and red patches of skin one may have. The only downside to this product I found was that it was quite slow to sink into the skin, so would maybe be best used as a night cream rather than the day cream it's marketed to be. 

Last but not least is another day cream, but this time designed to prevent breakouts with non-drying and non-pore blocking ingredients. Fortunately for me, my skin hasn't been too blemished recently so I couldn't immediately see results to that effect, but there are other upsides to the products I did notice. Again, like the others, it is strongly but pleasantly scented and not irritating to the skin in any way. I found it extremely hydrating, to the point of using it as a night cream to give me incredibly soft skin in the morning. I ended up using the entire put over the space of a week because I loved how hydrating I found it, and I may purchase this full-size for when my skin is in the middle of a breakout. 

All in all, a good crop of products! I'd honestly be happy to repurchase them all, but the exfoliator has the biggest impact on me overall. Have you tried any Pai products and if so, how did you find them?
