Review: Bespoque. Skin Care designed by YOU!

Ever wanted to design your own skincare line, but don’t have the knowledge, funds or company to make it for you? Well, you are in luck! Bespoque are offering you the chance to make your own facial moisturiser, made by you, for you!

When you’ve lived in your skin for x amount of years, you tend to know it inside out (hehe). Bespoque: Skin care designed by YOU* (RRP $34.95 - $64.95) gives you the chance to assess what you skin needs, and allows you to combine the necessary ingredients to make your very own face moisturiser. The website is intuitive and user friendly, and offers a lot of information on what could be suited to your skin. I’ve been using this moisturiser the last four weeks and I’ve been loving it! It’s hydrating without being heavy or oily, and it soaks into my skin quickly (I don’t like a residue left on the skin too long).

I will take you step by step through the design process here:

 

First step is to choose the base for your moisturiser. I chose light & hydrating, as my skin doesn’t need a rich moisturiser.

I chose to not have a fragrance in my product.As much as I love a scented product, when it comes to facial moisturiser, I like to stick to non-scented products. My skin is slightly sensitive, so it’s best to err on the side of safety.

Choosing a name for your formula. I, of course, chose Minted. Fitting, don’t you think? :P

Next was the label colour. I really wish they had a Mint Green colour. I went with peach instead :)

Next up is choosing what you skin type is. I chose oily and I am in my 20’s.

 

I have a little trouble with fine lines and wrinkles and sun damage, a lot of uneven skin tone (thanks to acne scarring) and no sagging skin (yet! heh.)

I don’t have dry or flaky skin, but I do have a little redness and dull/lifeless skin. However, I do suffer from frequent breakouts, as well as enlarged pores.

 

And this is the result! If you don’t think some of these features will suit your skin, you can remove and add different ones to tweak your formula.

      I think so too! It’s such a great idea, especially because you know your skin better than anyone!

    I’m so glad you’ve jumped on board the Bespoque bandwagon! I was lucky enought to attend a red carpet launch by Bespoque and was one of the first people to road test the in store machines (I felt VERY lucky!). I’m glad you can order online now though, makes things much easier. Love the name you chose too, very fitting!
