Skincare Made Easy: Cinch Skin

With the busy lives we all lead these days, we all want to keep our skincare simpler and easy, taking up as little time as possible. Well Cinch Skin is trying to help you do just that and they have just released two more skincare products to help you out!
For those of you who haven't heard of Cinch before, let me introduce you! Cinch's motto is to give you amazing skin in a cinch! Cinch is all about keeping beauty simple.  Our products are quick and easy to use with multiple benefits, so that instead of using five products, you can now give amazing face using just one. They are a vegan, cruelty free and Australian made skincare brand that is really doing amazing things with skincare at the moment.


Face Cheat*

This iconic product was the first we say from Cinch. Face Cheat is a 72 hr moisturiser in a spray from designed to replace your moisturiser AND primer. After cleansing your skin you simply spray this onto your face and away you go. 

I immediately fell in love with this product when I tried it out last year. For those days when you are running short on time, it is life saver! I find it works best if I spray it on my skin (liberally of course) and then gently pat it in as sometimes I can end up with a couple of white spots where they product has landed. This also helps to get it right into my skin. It is beautiful though and does give your skin an immediate glow. While it wasn't something I could use by itself in winter, it was heaven in summer. I would also spray it on my face throughout the day when I was feeling a little bit dull. 

Face Cheat(er)*

This new release from Cinch takes hydration to a whole new level of benefits. 5 Ah-May-Zing benefits in 1 dreamy cream! Face Cheat(er) is a 72 hr moisturising cream that anyone with normal, dehydrated or dry skin will obsess over. It also instantly illuminates your skin, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, minimises pores and primes your skin ready for perfect makeup application. 

I was super excited about this moisturiser because while I loved the original Face Cheat, I needed something a little bit more in winter and I think this is going to be perfect. It is a creamy moisturiser in a pump bottle that has a slight shimmer to it. I find I only need one pump to get enough moisturiser to cover my whole face. It melts into the skin easily, but leaves your feeling hydrated and your skin looking so glowy! I don't always use a primer after using this moisturiser as I find that this prepares my skin well enough and helps make up last well, plus I want that glow to carry through into my make up routine. I think Cinch have just nailed it with this moisturiser!

Face It Micellar Water*

The last newbie from Cinch is a beautiful cleanser. Face It is a 5 in 1 micellear water. This hardworking little beauty removes non waterproof make up from your face, lips and eyes and gently cleanses in one simple step. It also tones, balances and gently exfoliates the skin. Experience immediate hydration whilst the gentle fruit acids leave your skin with a subtle glow. No rinsing required. 

I love micellar water and I had actually just run out, so this arrived at the perfect time. I need to start by complimenting the pump. THANK YOU CINCH for putting a pump on your Micellar Water, more companies need to do this. It makes it so much easy to portion control when it comes to getting enough cleanser. This cleanser has a subtle scent, but nothing too strong or over powering. Bear in mind that I use micellar water as a second cleanse, not as my primary make up remover. After removing make up, I just take a cotton pad and pump the micellar water onto it a couple of times and then wipe across the face. 

I am loving this cleanser! It works really well to remove any make up residue and leaves my skin feeling fresh, hydrated and happy (everything that I want in a cleanser!). The pump is also a HUGE bonus and I am so happy that it has one! 

Two more products and Cinch are still killing it! Have you tried any Cinch products yet? Would love to hear what you think! xx
