Cloud 9 Skin Solutions is an innovative new British skincare brand, focused on creating solutions for specific skin problems. The company came about when a family member who had terrible varicose veins and didn’t fancy undergoing the excruciating surgery, therefore the family did their research and their first product was created for treating the specific problem. Launching with an initial range of five stand-out products, the brand aims to empower users to restore the natural beauty of their skin, using the unique blend of natural ingredients in all the Cloud 9 Skin Solutions products.
With the pace and time pressures of modern life, consumers need reliable products that make a genuine impact and deliver results, especially when it comes to more specific skin problems – the ethos at the heart of Cloud 9. Innovative use of natural ingredients is key, e.g. Ivy in the cellulite cream, which you feel starting to work immediately and onion extract for its scar repair cream Skin Rehab. With prices starting at £30, it isn’t cheap but you wouldn’t expect it to be for such high quality products and if you see the promised results, its definitely worth investing. We had our beauty editor try the range to see how they feel and importantly, if they work…
Body Makeover Cellulite Treatment £35 – this fast absorbing gel leaves no residue and visibly reduces the appearance of cellulite (orange peel skin) within two weeks of regular use. With a key ingredient of Ivy, it’s powerful thermogenic properties begin to work immediately, to boost blood and lymph flow. You can feel the Ivy extract start to work on application; expect a tingling and warming sensation on the skin, which will disappear after a few minutes. I definitely felt the tingling. At first, I was slightly worried as it feels like a hot burning sensation and a huge red rash appears like an allergic reaction but after that died down, my skin felt tight. I feel this is the stand out product of the range, as it actually feels and looks like its working. It is definitely something ill keep on using.
Nature’s Miracle Varicose Vein Treatment £30 – a dual action formula that helps soothe tired, aching legs, reduce inflammation and the appearance of varicose and spider veins. It also improves the skin’s firmness and elasticity. I used this most days after work and it definitely felt cooling and soothing on the legs. This is one for anyone who works on their feet all day and need a little relief after hours.
Tranquility Ultra Soothing Cream for Dry Damaged Skin £36 – helps relieve common symptoms such as extreme dryness and red inflamed scaling skin, while encouraging healthy skin regeneration. A natural formula that helps sooth red, irritated, scaly skin. Our unique combination of Vitamin B12 and Avocado Oil can help soothe sensitive areas by moisturising and nourishing the skin, helping reduce the discomfort caused by dry inflamed skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, whilst improving the softness and elasticity of skin. This rich pink cream is perfect for sensitive skin conditions. Its soothing, calming and even though I don’t have problematic skin, it is a beautifully, hydrating moisturiser for anyone who prefers natural ingredients.
Skin Rehab Scar Minimising Cream £35 – combines age-old healing principles and cutting edge scientific research to help reduce the appearance of existing scars and help prevent new scars from forming. St John’s Wort and extract of Onion help reduce inflammation, while Calendula and Yarrow extracts assist in the healing process and to alleviate pain. Arnica helps to improve skin elasticity and softness. I didn’t test this one myself but gave it to my boyfriend who has a recent scar. The colour and smell of this cream is a little off putting as its a deep yellow colour, so best for use in the night but I feel a difference could be seen from 2 weeks of use which is pretty good going!
Clarity Skin Clearing Spot Gel – works to reduce inflammation, control oil production, inhibit blemish causing bacteria and prevent spots from returning. This invisible gel provides fast and effective relief, promoting clear, revitalised skin whilst reducing inflammation and soothing skin. I love using this at night to dry up a spot or blemish for clear skin in the morning. Perfect for those last minute break outs.
Overall, I like the Cloud 9 range. If you have specific skin issues, I believe you would do anything to correct those problems and this range is something that can help and work for you. Its definitely worth a try, I could feel some of the products literally working as they were applied and the fact that they are natural based products is another plus. I always recommend trying young british brands as you never know what little gems you might find!
