Sunday Riley uses a range of key ingredients designed to efficiently promote hydration, support skin structure, regenerate, and keep pores clean and clear with an overall smooth, even complexion. This is what I used on my rosacea skin. I brought lots of samples to test out.
The Luna Sleeping Oil star ingredient is retinol, but it is also packed with avocado and chia seeds oils. Luna works throughout the night to deliver visibly youthful, luminous, even-toned skin in the morning. Trans-retinoic acid ester complex reduces the appearance of pores and wrinkles, while visibly improving the signs of premature aging: fine lines, uneven texture, age spots, dryness, and dullness. Balanced with blue tansy and German chamomile essential oils, both rich in soothing, blue azulene, visible redness and the signs of sensitivity are neutralized, for a calm, even-toned complexion. This is a mild retinol I wanted to try and re-introduce to my rosacea skin.
Tidal is the perfect accompaniment to the night oil. A lightweight, oil-free gel-cream for instantly glowing, dewy skin. Two forms of advanced hyaluronic acid infuse water into the skin. Gently refining papaya enzymes smooth the look of textured or dehydrated skin, for a baby-soft complexion. Alpha-arbutin brightens the appearance of discolorations for clear radiance. However this do not work for me. I was not a fan of the feeling and hours after using this, my skin on my face felt tight. I had an 8g sample, that I used nightly for just under a week and I will not buy a full size product.
Juno is one of my favourites. An obsession-worthy face oil, Juno gives an instant glow to dehydrated skin by restoring and rehydrating the skin’s natural moisture barrier with a blend of organic, cold-pressed, antioxidant-rich, superfood seed oils. Freshly extracted in small quantities, cold-pressed blackberry, blueberry, cranberry, raspberry, wild carrot, black cumin, grape, and broccoli seed oils retain their delicate, rich nutrients. Healthy-looking radiance is immediately restored, as the skin is fortified with critical antioxidants, vitamins, essential amino acids, Omegas 3-6-9, and skin soothing botanicals. My skin loves this in the morning. This has going into my morning rotation of facial oils. I love this.
Ceramic Slip is a plant-based cleanser that pulls out impurities while pulling in clean hydration, for smaller-looking pores and a clean, radiant complexion. A blend of four gentle, plant-based soaps that lift up and wash away dirt and impurities without stripping the skin. French green clay pulls dirt, oil, pollution, and makeup out of the pores while rice oil esters protect the skin from dehydration. Impurities are pulled out, clean hydration is pulled in. Formulated as a universal, foaming cleanser for even the most sensitive skin, Ceramic Slip leaves all skin types softer, cleaner, balanced, and radiant. Extremely gentle, this deep cleaning cleanser can be used daily, morning and night, for a healthier-looking complexion. This worked fine, but I did not like the smell. I will not be buying a full size product.
Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment immediately exfoliates dull, pore-clogging dead skin cells, and reveals smoother, clearer, younger-looking skin. The look of lines are plumped and radiance is instantly boosted. With continued use, the appearance of dark spots and the visible signs of aging are reduced, for a healthier-looking complexion. This you can only buy in the USA.
Auto Correct is an eye cream that instantly delivers a lifted and depuffed look to the eye area while rapidly reducing the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. Caffeine and Brazilian ginseng root extract rapidly reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles, energizing tired-looking eyes. Concentrated horse chestnut and acmella oleracea extracts smooth the appearance of crow’s feet and fine lines, while giving an instantly lifted look. Antioxidant-rich lutein provides a radiant glow to the fragile skin around the eye. Cocoa and shea butter plump the skin with moisture, while watermelon rind extract and sodium PCA infuse hydration into the skin. Eyes look fresher, younger, depuffed, and more rested for immediate and noticeable results. Not sure I would repurchase this.
Ice Ceramide Moisturise is rich but lightweight, this dual action moisturizer uses beetroot and coconut extract to pull hydration into the skin, while ceramides, vitamin F, and pomegranate sterols strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier, sealing in moisture. It’s an incredibly sumptuous, rich, hydrating cream that I fell in love with upon using. It smells like marzipan to me. If this is on offer, I will be repurchasing, it is very expensive
With rosacea, you have to be so careful with you can try. I know I can not try everything that Sunday Riley has brought to the UK. These I am glad I have tried and I do have some firm favourites. I hope we get more in the UK, this is a brand that my face really likes !
