If you follow me on Instagram (you really should – click here) you will no doubt have noticed I have a real thing for Venn Skincare. Bordering on obsession at times. So here it is – The Venn Skincare Entire Range Review. Yep, all of it! The Venn Vitamin B Activated All in One Concentrate, Moisture Balance All in One Face Cleanser, Concentrated Revitalising Lifting Mask and of course the Advanced Multi Perfecting Red Oil Serum.
This is a supplement to my review of the Age Reversing All in One Concentrate (read the post here) and also because I was able to secure you guys a little discount – So I thought I’d share a little run-down on the rest of the products in the line in case you want to take advantage of a bit of cash off and wanted to know my opinion on some of the other bits in the range. Codes can be found at the end of the article.
Spoiler alert – I’m a huge fan.
The simple streamlined skincare routine approach has my inner lazy girl squealing with excitement. And the best bit? You are not sacrificing a single ounce of effectiveness with these supercharged formulas .
Venn Skincare Moisture Balance All in One Face Cleanser
First off, the texture of this cleanser is phenomenal. I’d describe it as thin milky/gel cleanser. Venn describe it as a quasi-semi-emulsion. It uses gentle humectants – skin nourishing ingredients – rather than harsh surfactants – skin depleting – to cleanse the skin in the most gentle way possible without compromising on effectiveness.
I use this as either a morning cleanse or an evening second cleanse. I don’t use it to take makeup off, but I have seen it work some serious magic in an Instagram clip on some red lipstick, so it definitely can break down makeup. There’s some enzymes and PHA (poly hydroxy acids) in there for a light exfoliation, vitamins B3 & B5 plus a host of antioxidants.
Venn lists the cleanser as free from fragrance, parabens, silicone, phthalates, mineral oil, sulfates, and colorants. And of course it’s vegan and cruelty free.
I am head over heels about Moisture Balance All in One Face Cleanser. The Moisture Balance cleanser with its silky milk-gel hybrid texture leaves my skin feeling perfectly balanced, softened and clean. If you hadn’t already guessed, I am a HUGE fan of this cleanser.
Venn Vitamin B Activated All in One Concentrate
Vitamin B Activated All in One Concentrate is definitely giving Age Reversal a run for its money in my heart stakes.
Both provide a comprehensive formulation in terms of amazing ingredients but Vitamin B – as you would expect – really focuses on the B vitamins to help deeply hydrate and restore bounce and elasticity to the face.
The B’s are also incredibly soothing, so if you are a sufferer of skin irritations or inflammation, this is definitely the one I’d suggest you to choose if you were to be deciding between the two. Niacinamide and Panthenol are both amazing ingredients included in here that have drastically helped in the reduction of my own facial redness.
The texture of Vitamin B Activated All in One Concentrate is a little heavier than Age Reversal. It gives my skin a little more immediate hydration and comfort. Still it’s far from a heavy moisturizer. IMO it would suit all skin types and for those of us who are on the drier side adding a few drops of the Advanced Multi-Perfecting Red Serum or topping with the Revitalizing Mask would be perfect options for when your skin may need a little extra.
Concentrated Revitalizing Lifting Mask
If you are new to the Venn Skincare line and you’d like to just dip your toes, rather than plunge into the deep end, this is where I’d start. Well, unless you opt for one of their travel sized offerings.
While Concentrated Revitalizing Lifting Mask may be the most affordable of the leave on treatments in the Venn Skincare range, you aren’t compromising on quality or efficacy.
This instant gratification leave on mask is again infused with Venn’s love of peptides and antioxidants and is the ‘richest‘ option of the line in my opinion.
Use just a dab or two to create a beautiful plump canvas for daily makeup or you can go to town and apply a decent layer for an overnight transformation – lets not go crazy here – we’re not talking cosmetic procedure type results – but I promise you will notice a difference to the appearance of your skin the next day. There’s a healthier bounce to the skin – like you might have regained a few years of youth.
Advanced Multi-Perfecting Red Oil Serum
Ok, the Advanced Multi-Perfecting Red Oil Serum is the one Venn product that I’ve had the least experience with. I have only used it sporadically and not fully tested.
As an early impression plus taking into account my feels with the rest of the Venn brand I quite like this crimson tinted oil for the most part.
Packed into this light-on-the-skin formula is a bunch of seed oils, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals as well as key ingredients – Lithospermum Erythrorhizon (Gromwell) Root Extract and Angelica Gigas (Korean Angelica) Root Extract that have been fermented to amplify their effectiveness. Fermented/Probiotic skincare is a real trend right now and one that I really want to deep dive into at another time.
But, and here’s the but. If you have coveted this brand for not only all the brilliant ingredients they include, but also for the ones that they do not include you may be disappointed with the inclusion of essential oils in this particular formula.
Yep, it’s glaringly obvious to all of you, I am sure that I am a massive fan of the Venn Skincare range. I think Venn is a solid skincare brand with really thoughtful formulations whilst keeping in mind optimal results.
I have so kindly been offered two discounts codes for you to use should you want to try Venn for yourself. These are only valid at Venn website directly.
