The F.O.Y. skincare range was originally developed to provide post-operative treatments for patients undergoing surgical and non-invasive cosmetic procedures. Standing for Fountain Of Youth the idea was that F.O.Y. products would help to prolong results long after patients had been discharged from the clinic.
Formulated by a team aestheticians, skincare scientists and dermatologists in 2015, there are now ten skincare products in the range, which is targeted towards mature skin types. I was very kindly sent eight products range to test out and I have to say both myself and my mum, who also became a willing guinea pig, were impressed.
The Moisturising Day Cream* is a lightweight but intensive cream which is easily absorbed Containing Hyaluronic Acid which plumps the skin and smoothes out fine lines, vitamin rich Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil which nourishes and protects, this cream really boosts lacklustre skin.
At night the Rejuvenating Night Cream* is designed to take up where the day cream left off, rejuvenating and regenerating the skin while you sleep with a potent combination of Gingseng root, Gotu-Cola and Symphytum.
The Revitalising Eye Gel* targets wrinkles and firms and tightens the eye area. Again the magic ingredient here is Hyaluronic Acid which moisturises and plumps out those pesky fine lines, and Sea Chamomile which calms, reduces puffiness and soothes away dark circles.
The Cleansing Micellar Water* is gentle micellar water that cleanses, removes make-up and tones the skin in a single step. Featuring Panthenol, Rosewater, Chamomile, Ginseng and Marigold it increases hydration and improves softness and elasticity, soothes, calms and tone the skin, whilst leaving it feeling deeply cleansed and free from grease and grime.
As a weekly treat the Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator* promises smooth and radiant skin with the help of Glycolic Acid which removes dead skin cells. Rose water, Chamomile and Ginseng Extracts then work to soothe, tone and moisturise the skin.
The Triple Action Face Mask* is an advanced-performance purifying face mask that can be used three times to revitalise and firm the skin. Kaolin helps minimise oil production, Allantoin has an anti-inflammatory effect, Carnosine is an anti-ageing peptide that stimulates collagen synthesis, and Marigold and Gotu Kola Extracts calms and heals.
There are also two bodycare products in the F.O.Y. range. The Absolute Nectar Massage Oil* is a gorgeous oil, rich in natural oils including Avocado, Jojoba and Olive Oil. It relaxes, destresses, softens and leaves skin deeply nourished.
Last but not least is the Double Action Anti-Cellulite Gel* which helps to fight the formation of trapped fat below the skin’s surface and diminish the orange peel effect of cellulite. For best results use this gel after body brushing, which improves circulation and rids the body of toxins and aids absorption of the gel.
Although a relatively young brand it is clear F.O.Y. have done their homework and have created an effective range of products, that not only look the part but perform.
F.O.Y. skincare products are available exclusively through their website here.
