Beauty Review // Defensil Rescue Serum*

Wednesday, 24 July 2013




For anyone who has suffered from dry skin, you will know how uncomfortable and irritable it can be.

Having just moved house, I seem to be spending rather too much time with my hands in and out of water. Whether it's washing up the dishes, (we haven't had the dishwasher plumbed in yet), or cleaning bathrooms or other household/DIY chores - my hands seem to be constantly dry. I know, I hear you cry "wear marigolds??!!".. This would, of course, be a sensible solution - however I keep forgetting and they are a bit of an awkward hand accessory.

To overcome this chronic dryness I decided to take Defensil Rescue Serum* out of my cupboard. It's a great little serum for dry and sensitive skin. I have been using it over the winter to combat the random dry patches I'd been getting on my back (I think they were as a result of the skin meds I was taking at the time). The irritable feeling vanished almost as soon as the serum was applied.

The serum is fab. It's a gel-like cream and has a smooth texture. It slowly soaks into the skin and gives immediate relief without causing stinging or irritation. Defensil Rescue Serum* is Swiss created - which if you ask me must be a good thing - have you tried Swiss chocolate?? 

The Serum contains two key natural ingredients; an extract from the Cardiospermum seed and cold pressed Echium Oil. These two ingredients have been recognised in trials to stabilise and regenerate the skin barrier. It is these two ingredients which help to stop that itchy feeling associated with dry skin. In my case it really did make a huge difference.

The cream doesn't really smell of much which I think is a positive - there is nothing worse than the pong of medicated creams. The serum helps keep the skin in good condition and the patches I had soon went after I started using this little pot o' Swiss goodness.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been using it on my poor hands. Thankfully, it's working a treat! My hands really do feel less sore and less dry. Now I just need to sort out my nails or rather what is left of them.. Seriously, 'Hello House = Goodbye Nails' - people should warn you about this! 


I would recommend this product to anyone with uncomfortably dry, or sensitive skin, in need of some TLC. The price is also pretty reasonable at £9.95 for 50ml - which lasts an age. It is available to buy from the Skin Shop - which is a great online beauty shop that has lots of treats for sensitive or problem skin. 


Have you tried any rescue lotions or potions? I'd love to hear from you!
