Frances Prescott Tri-Balm Review

14th May 2018 in Cleanser, Skincare - 4 Comments - 3 min read >/div>

Welcome Skintellectuals!

I’m always on the lookout for the next best cleanser, its just something I really enjoy using. I feel like cleanser is probably the most important part of your whole routine as sets everything else up that you’re going to be doing, if you are using the wrong cleanser then its just downhill from there as your actives won’t be able to penetrate as well as they should, you might be drying out your skin and worst of all it might not even remove all of your makeup/SPF.

Frances Prescott Tri Balm Review

When Tri-Balm arrived I was a little confused as it looked really small for a cleanser but then I realised that it was in the form of a stick! I honestly dont think Ive ever come across this type of cleanser before and I think its safe to say im pretty much in love with this!
When my Votary Rose Geranium and Apricot Cleanser ran out i was looking for another oil cleanser to replace it as ive found out that i absolutely swear by oil for cleansing these days.

Tri-Balm is suitable for all skin types, I have combination/oily skin and I absolutely love it! Tri-Balm claims that it will cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise your skin I have to agree that it does do all of those things, but I would still be exfoliated and moisturising after this, Tri-Balm does make the skin softer and more hydrated after cleansing which is why I like it so much it beautifully preps the skin for your actives.

Frances Prescott Tri Balm Review

Tri-Balm contains a concoction of some beautiful ingredients such as an English Oil Blend, this includes English cereal, plant, fruit and flower oils, including NorOmega Gold, specifically blended to deliver high levels of topical nutrition to the skin. Tri-Balm also contains blackcurrant, starflower, echium and oat extract. Pumpkin Enzyme which is used as an exfoliant, It is extracted from pumpkin seeds that are packed with proteolytic enzymes which help to break down dead skin cells and speed up cell renewal. Pumpkin is also rich in exfoliating alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) along with antioxidant vitamin A and vitamin C, which soften and brighten skin, and alpha-carotene and beta-carotene which protect skin from premature ageing. Tri-Balm also contains sodium hyaluronate, a water-soluble salt form of hyaluronic acid which you will know is already naturally present in the body, hyaluronic acid has a remarkable ability to help retain over 1000 times its weight in water, i always say a hydrated skin is a healthy skin it looks much firmer and plump as well as brighter and glowy.

Frances Prescott Tri Balm Review

I have been using this for a good couple of months now I think i first used it in March and its still going strong, I really like the concept of a stick cleanser as its so easy and simple to use not to mention being travel friendly. I know a lot of you will be thinking about how hygenic this will be as its a stick I tend to roll it into my hands first and then apply to my face as the stick isn’t getting contaminated by whatever is on my face at the time.

When using Tri-Balm you apply this to a dry face as your first cleanse. I tend to massage it into the skin to destroy any makeup or SPF and then apply a little bit of water and further massage it into the skin and then wipe away with a wet washcloth. I have to say that I like the fact that it emulsifies once you apply water to it, it turns into a milky cleanser that again can be removed with water or a washcloth, I personally like to use a washcloth.

You can find the Frances Prescott Tri-Balm at francesprescott.com for £46* (70g)

  • I see a lot of bloggers/instagrammers in particular slating and trashing products when they didn't see results.

Just because something doesn't work for you it doesn't mean it's a bad product it just means it's not right for you.

Personally I can't use a lot of L-ascorbic acid products because my skin just doesn't get on well with it, this doesn't mean it's a bad product it just doesn't work for me.

I feel like we need to be more objective when talking about products instead of making instant snap decisions.

If a product isn't working for you, ask yourself: how long have you been using it for? Are your expectations realistic? And finally is it your skin that's the problem not the product? .

  • Probably one of my most favourite products ever! 
@pixibeautyuk Glow Tonic was one of the first actives I ever used, I bought a bottle when I was in London with @jaynekitsch years ago when they only had their London store and it honestly changed everything! That's when I became hooked on skincare because of how much i saw my skin change.

I have a review coming out tomorrow for this superstar product, keep an eye out for it ❤️

  • "If you can't pronounce it dont use it"

I see this myth a lot and it really bugs me! It's completely baseless and is created in fear. 
Just because you can't pronounce a chemical name it doesn't mean it's somehow bad for you.

For example Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate sounds scary it's a long name but that's no reason to fear it because it's just a cell communicating ingredient that is often known as "Botox in a bottle" 
Fear is such a pervasive thing in the skincare industry a lot of brands sell their products based on fear and we honestly need to get over this fear and to realise that must because something has a long name we can't pronounce it doesn't mean it's bad for you.

Next time you pick up a product then put it back because it has too many ingredients you can't pronounce just remember that it's all about the formula. You should be objectively thinkkng about the formula instead of jumping to fear every time.

  • *UPDATED SKINCARE ROUTINE*

CLEANSER - @fprescottskin i honestly don't think I'll ever use another cleanser apart from the @dermalogicauk special cleanse when I'm at the gym. I have talked about how much I love Tribalm. It's the best balm cleanser I've ever use not to mention it's so travel friendly too.

TONE - This isn't a toner but I usually this in the place where toner should be. I've been using the new @drdennisgross (*gifted) Resurfacing Liquid Peel for a while and it's pretty awesome. There's no percentage so I'm not sure how strong it is but I use this every other day and the off days I just use the Alpha Beta Peel Pads. 
SERUM - @skinceuticals_uki H.A Intensifier (*gifted) I am absolutely in love with this! While it's on the higher end of the spectrum being quite expensive it's so worth it in my opinion. Instead of being a bog standard hyaluronic acid this serum actually helps to amplify the skins natural hyaluronic acid levels which I find fascinating. It contains high levels of HA as well as Proxylane and purple rice extract.

EYE SERUM - @alphahskincare Absolute Eye Complex (*gifted) this was sent to me a while back and I only just remembered I had it so I thought I'd give it a go. Usually I don't care for eye creams unless they are active because to be it's essentially useless paying for more for a small amount of moisturiser in a tube.

TREATMENT - @paulaschoiceuk
1% clinical strength retinol - this has to be the single strongest over the counter retinol on the market, definitely not for first time use. If there was a otc retinol that I had to choose it would be this one everytime.

MOISTURISER - @stubborncosmetics
Custom Made Moisturiser *gifted - I have said this many times but I'll say it again, I have so much love for this moisturiser it's so good to find something customised to you rather than just hoping something will work.

  • I feel like a lot of the times lactic acid is overlooked in favour of glycolic. Lactic acid can be a massive help to those with dry skin.

First and foremost Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid and unlike glycolic acid, lactic acid works on the surface level to left of any dead skin cells.

I like to compare Lactic acid to Pac man munching away at the dead skin cells. 
Lactic acid is a fantastic moisturising ingredient, it's so good that there's even a prescription product called LacHydrin (12% lactic acid) that is used to hydrate chronically dry skin.

My favourite lactic acid used to be @sundayriley Good Genes but since they have reformulated it to be glycolic now I'm on the hunt for a new version. I had heard that @deciem does a really good 5% and 10% Lactic acid that I need to revisit.

  • Everyone knows that I love pixi, Glow Tonic has to be one of my all time favourite products simply because it's so effective ❤️ I was recently sent a bunch of new pixi products to try and DetoxifEYE Depuffing Eye Patches were apart of that package and I wanted to talk about them.

While I hate the name of the product because no matter what anyone ever tells you you can't detoxify the skin by using a topical product it just isn't possible the role of detoxifing goes to the kidneys and not the skin. 
Despite the god awful name, the product is actually pretty good. They do a good job of depuffing the eyes.

Each patch is made from hydrogel and doesn't slip down your face so you don't have to walk around face up to the sky haha

The main component of these patches is caffeine which is a vasoconstrictor that tightens the skin getting rid of the puffiness temporarily.

The patches also say they contain gold but I'm not even going to entertain that as one of the ingredients because gold does nothing for the skin topically despite many brands trying to convince you otherwise.

I tend to use these in the PM before bed but you can use them in the morning before you apply your makeup .
