I often wonder why Sampar has never made it to the UK. It’s a lovely skin-care range from France that is very popular in the States as well, so it’s a bit of a mystery that it is so hard to get hold of here. It isn’t even a new brand. A while ago they sent me this facial peel mask and it’s taken me nearly forever to test it out.
The Sampar promise on this one is to remove dead skin cells and stimulate new cell growth. It also promises to boost the skins natural defences but I’d say that’s not something your ever going to have visible proof of from a face mask. The range uses a lot of natural actives – in this mask, lavender, sage, savory, thyme and geranium and it certainly has that aromatherapy smell to it. I don’t have oily skin and this preparation is best for those with that particular skin type even though the formula is an oil consistency.
That said, it worked beautifully on my normal to dry skin and left it feeling smoothed and softened. The probiotic enzyme formula is rather like a thick oil which sounds unappealing but is in fact rather nice. Once you’ve given your skin the allotted two minutes you then massage to a foam and rinse away. All very simple, easy to use and a big bonus for me is that it is a good one for when you are short on time. If your skin is dry, it’s an every-now-and-again treat when skin looks a little dull and lack-lustre, but for oily skin I can see that regular use would really have a good effect.
If you can find a site to ship to the UK, I would recommend this.
