Review: Skeen+ Powder Products (Eyes & Face)

Mentioned a while ago on SCforM, Skeen+ is an interesting French line designed for men (but now has a huge female following too). I’ve been testing out a few products from the line but today i’ll be focusing on the two powder products from the line since they’re so original.

Powder > Cream!

These are both powder products that, once massaged, turn into extremely light mattifying creams. They really feel like nothing on the skin and added to that they don’t look like regular skincare and aren’t nearly as messy for travel. All those elements together make these two products perfect for those who aren’t huge fans of skincare. If you are into keeping your skin in good shape then you’re in good hands too, these products are formulated well and contain ingredients that leave the skin looking bright and healthy.

On to the reviews!

Illuminating Care Powder

A daily skincare product formulated in a cutting-edge powder texture to illuminate, mattify and perfect skin. It contains high doses of pure and active Vitamin C, recognized in the field of dermatology for its anti-aging and antioxidant power.

Pros

  • Contains a decent amount of Vitamin C and peptides to keep the skin bright and plump.
  • Feels like nothing on the skin.
  • Perfectly mattifying and a tiny bit hydrating – if you have oily skin you’ll love this. You can even apply this over your regular moisturiser as a mattifying and antioxidant boost or just throughout the day if you get shiny.
  • Instantly makes skin look instantly smoother thanks to the silconey texture.

Cons

  • No sunscreen.
  • At £44 the price is a bit steep. You don’t have to use much of this but i’d say it’s definitely more of a luxury product.
  • It contains some nice ingredients but nothing groundbreaking. I think the real draw is the fact that it’s a powder.

Perfect Eyes Powder

A daily eye contour care product in the form of a powder to correct all peri-ocular imperfections: dull-looking eyes, under-eye bags, dark circles and fine lines. Enriched with pure Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), recognised in dermatology for its anti-ageing and revitalizing action.

Pros

  • Again, it’s a powder so it feels like nothing on the skin.
  • Absorbs oil, good if your eye area gets a bit shiny.
  • Caffeine and vitamin C help to brighten up the eye area a bit and de-puff.

Cons

  • I think this is too mattifying a product to use around the eyes – I found that after a while this started to pull against my eyes when applying and left them looking a bit dry and lined.
  • This contains half as much powder as the face product but doesn’t cost half as much. I would recommend skipping this and just using the face powder under your eyes too.

All in all I’d say these products are quite nice. The eye powder is pretty average but the face one is fantastic; well worth buying if you have oily skin or don’t like the feel of regular moisturisers on your face. Not only that, you can use it on top of your regular moisturisers to mattify during the day (a job that it’s very good at).

Skeen also do a range of traditional ‘liquid’ products that i’ll be reviewing shortly! You can buy Skeen products here.
