I had the chance to try some of the products from the Xylique skincare range.  All the Xylique products are formulated with the unique ingredient Moor, found from the lowlands of Austria. Gradually evolving over 20,000 years, Moor has been used for centuries for its known health and wellness benefits. It contains an abundant source of nutrients, minerals and plant-based hormones from thousands of herbs, plants and flowers which have decomposed into the waters. 

All Xylique products are:

  • Made from 100% naturally sourced ingredients.
  • Completely FREE from synthetic preservatives, parabens, sulfates, artifical colours & fragrance.
  • No petroleum derived chemicals such as PEG, propylene glycol or mineral oils. 
  • No animal testing.
  • Wide range of products suitable for all skin types.

I had been using these products for over a month and below is a quick review of each one of the products. 

Use daily, morning and night:

Deep Cleansing Bar – Moor Mud

I must admit, I haven’t used a cleansing bar for a long time and had vowed to stay away from them as they are known to strip the skin from its natural oils, however this Deep Cleansing Bar was quick to change my opinion. It was very gentle on my skin and does not leave the skin feeling tight. It foams extremely well and the aroma of peppermint is very refreshing. My skin tingles after each use, which is actually a really great feeling. Just like any other cleanser, it is important to immediately apply toner, serum and facial cream after cleansing skin. 

Herbal Toning Lotion

After I am done cleansing with the Deep Cleansing Bar, I pat my skin dry and follow up with this Herbal Toning Lotion. It combines Moor water and moisture-trapping hyaluronic acid with lavender, cedar wood and tea tree to relax, hydrate and restore the acid mantle after cleansing. Ingredients such as tea tree oil are known to be good for problematic skin. It feels cool and refreshing on the skin and dries immediately.

Instense Radiance Serum

Once I have cleansed and toned, I apply the Intense Radiance Serum. A tiny bit of this serum goes a long way and is super fast drying. My favourite feature of this serum is that the exclusive formulation reduces the appearance of hyper pigmentation and acne scars. 

Moisture Replenishing Cream

Once the skin has been cleansed, toned, and serum has been applied the final step is the Moisture Replenishing Cream. This cream is great for those looking to firm their skin or to simply restore moisture. It is specifically formulated for dry/devitalised skin, and has anti-ageing benefits. The sweet potato extract contains an abundant source of vitamins and minerals including potassium, magnesium, zinc, vitamin B, and vitamin C, just to name a few. I loved that it is non-greasy and my skin soaked it up straight away. 

Use only twice a week:

Exfoliant Facial Polish

Twice a week I would use this Exfoliant Facial Polish after cleansing my face. This exfoliator was my favourite product from this range as the beads were so gentle against my skin, removing dead skin cells naturally without the risk of irritation. The calendula extract, lavender and chamomile smooth and soften the skin while the fine jojoba beads remove dead skin cells. It can be used on all skin types and never left my face feeling dried out which is one of it’s best features.

To use: Use twice a week after cleansing skin with the Moor Mud Deep Cleansing Bar. Apply a small amount and rotate over skin with fingertips using light pressure. Rinse as normal and follow with Toner, Serum and Facial Cream.

Moor Mud Revival Mask

The Moor Mud Revival Mask contains simply one ingredient, 100% pure Heilmoor Clay (also known as moor). Heilmoor clay has been used for centuries for its therapeutic and rejuvenating qualities. It contains an abundance of essential oils, fatty acids and lipids to quickly penetrate the skin and help naturally balance the pH levels and to increase the flow of blood to the skin. Once applied on the mask’s powerful properties deeply nourish and replenish the skin. It is thick and black leaving my skin feeling refreshed and clean after each use.

To use: Use twice a week after cleansing skin with the Moor Mud Deep Cleansing Bar. Apply a teaspoon of the mask onto your palm and mixed with a drop of water to get a smooth consistency. Apply directly onto face and leave on for about 10 minutes. The mask will harden and you can feel your skin stretch. Rinse with warm water and follow as normal with the Toner, Serum and Facial Cream. 

Overall

This is an amazing skincare range that I have been really enjoying. It contains the unique and powerful ingredient, Moor, which is extremely beneficial for the skin. The products do have quite a short shelf life of only 3 months, but this is certainly a positive thing as it contains no preservatives. I’ve been using it for a month already and will definitely get through it within 3 months. I love that Xylique has a range of products suitable for all skin types and you are guaranteed to find something that is right for you. Highly recommend!
