The new Qsilica Skin care range has just arrived in the UK and I was lucky enough to be sent the Qsilica Nutrient Boost Face and Neck Moisturiser to try out. The range is distributed by Planet Health International and is an Australian brand. It is a natural skin care range that includes eight different products, all of which use natural nutrients. The Qsilica skin care products all use colloidal silica which is used to visibly fight the signs of ageing and give an outer glow to your skin. It was founded in 1996 and since then has grown to become a market leader.
Silica is a natural mineral that is found in sand and Quartz. It is also present in many vegetables and grains and is used by the skin and will keep the body more flexible and skin wrinkle free. Qsilica is a form of the mineral which has been optimised so the skin will absorb it more easily. It provides antioxidants and vitamins which provide a youthful glow to the skin and maintains the elasticity and suppleness. The range is free of chemicals, parabens, sulphates, petroleum and is not tested on animals.
Qsilica Nutrient Boost Face and Neck Moisturiser is said to be a facial moisturise that boosts the skin’s radiance and vitality. It contains Vitamin A to protect the skin, Vitamin E and Macadamia Oil to provide antioxidants and maintain the moisture levels of the skin whilst acting to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Finally it contains Silica to keep your skin silky smooth.
When the cream is removed from the tube it is white in colour. It has an interesting smell, it is not unpleasant but quite sweet with a touch of antiseptic in there. The smell is not overpowering and soon fades. The range is fragrance free and when you realise that it is quite a nice smell.
You only need a small amount of this moisturiser as it goes a long way. It sinks nicely into your skin leaving it feeling well moisturised but if you use too much you can be left with a slight greasy feeling. It does moisturise your skin well which is great for me as my skin can be rather dry. It is a nice moisturiser and it works well, it left my skin feeling happier and more moisturised, but possibly needs to be a bit stronger for the winter.
