I purchased this product from Priceline at the Boxing day sales. This is a starter pack containing deluxe sized samples of key items from Klara‘s Reset range aimed at improving skin quality so that you’re selfie ready without makeup. I’ve been using the products for a month and now I can give you my true feedback.
This is a four step process to reset your skin and I’ll walk you through the steps as they are to be followed.
Reset Instant New Skin
This is a gel exfoliant. Klara claims it to be like a microdermabrasion in a bottle. This is my favourite product of the bunch. The way it works is that you just dab a little of the gel on your forehead and using fingers, rub into the skin with gentle circular motions working your way down from the forehead to the chin – avoid the delicate eye area. You will find that dead skin cells ball up as you massage the gel over your skin. Wait 2 minutes for the gel to set, wipe off any residue using a dry tissue. You don’t need to wash your skin after this step.
I originally was nervous about this product as I thought it would sting and I prepared for the worst, but it didn’t hurt at all. It felt like a gel with some coarsely granular particles and as you rub it in to your skin. After a couple of uses, my skin actually looks refreshed and so clean. I’ve noticed an improvement in the way my skin absorbs and retains moisture too. The only thing I would say is even though the back of the box says to use it 4 times a week, I find using it 2-3 times a week sufficient for my skin.
This moisturiser claims to provide your skin with excellent hydration – equivalent to the recommended dose of 8 glasses of water per day. This moisturiser has a thin consistency of a cross between a lotion and a gel. It contains pearlised microparticles, which give your skin that coveted radiance. The moisturiser is quite smooth and easy to massage into the skin. It sets quite quickly and feels like soft skin to the touch. I love that you’re not left with that tacky residue on your skin (don’t get me wrong, I really like that “moisturised” feeling, but sometimes I just want my skin to feel like skin, you know?).
I’m not a big fan of the scent. It reminds me of the Ikiara Bubble Mask. It doesn’t have too pleasant a fragrance, but thankfully, it doesn’t linger too long and the scent is actually mild enough for some people not to notice.
I would class this as a primer more than anything. It has the consistency of a typical creamy primer – the product I could compare it to would be the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Instant Perfecting primer. The cream coloured primer smooths quite well onto the skin. It has blurring technology, so it’s perfect for smoothing out pores and fine lines and minimising their appearance on the skin.
I have a few pores around my nose, as a lot of people do, but it’s not overly visible for me to be self conscious about it. This primer does a good job at smoothing the area. I noticed that foundation goes on really smoothly over this primer.
If you’re having a pretty good skin day, I would say go with this primer to blur fine imperfections and head out the door.
Reset 3D Moisture Water Fuse
The last product from this range is this Skin Corrector Cream with SPF 15. This is the least favourite of the bunch. It was incredibly patchy and I struggled to get it blend into my skin. The cream has shade adjusting properties and it tried to match my skin tone, but fell about a shade too light for my liking. I tried to use a brush to apply the cream, warm it up with my fingertips before application and I just couldn’t get it to smooth out for me. It’s almost like the product split and it just didn’t work.
The minimalistic black packaging with the silver lid really appeals to me. I really really love two out of the four products – the Reset Gel and the Reset Flawless. I would definitely purchase the full sized bottles of these two products.
