I have been using this moisturiser for roughly a month now and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated and nourished. The fragrance is gender neutral and is non greasy, which is excellent. A little goes a long way aswell. An overall great daily moisturiser!
I look forward to putting this cream on in the morning! It smells amazing, and makes for such a fresh start! More importantly, I’ve had days since using this cream where I’ve felt like I can put less foundation on ... It’s a confidence boost!
After using this moisturiser for around 2 weeks now, I am totally converted from any product I have used before. It hydrates your skin throughout the day and gives a glow from within look. ALSO it smells so so yummy!!! I'm SO excited to try the other products!
Chapter 1 - You Are!
You Are! is the first chapter of Exentrique. This collection is all about taking back control and defining your own beauty standards. The beauty industry has created our “mask to the world”. It makes people feel they need to put this mask on to present themselves as credible. The industry fuels these unrealistic standards of beauty with our self doubt to increase profits. We’re the only skincare brand not telling you what you should look like. There is beauty in building peoples confidence, supporting expression, kindness and the freedom to decide what it all means to you.
Exentrique is an inclusive skincare brand, thats mission is to improve mental health by addressing socially constructed beauty standards and their impact on body image. We combine high performing products with affirmation and empowerment to improve the condition of the skin and the mind.
Inclusivity is the backbone of Exentrique. When formulating products we aim to do the basics brilliantly and then add our core values: Hypoallergenic, Cruelty free, Vegan, Gender neutral, All skin types, All ages. We want to be an option for everyone, not a solution for those who need it.
Psychodermatology has not only highlighted but proven a link between the mind and the skin. Not only can mental health concerns, stress in particular, have a real impact on our skin but those who experience skin concerns are more likely to encounter feelings of isolation, depression & anxiety.
I know how it feels to be conscious of your skin. The emotional scars are there and they are real. I was diagnosed with severe eczema when i was 3 and although i have grown out of the worst of it, I'm still really affected by it mentally. I have come to terms with the fact that my skin is a trigger for me and that link is something i want to highlight.
At Exentrique, we believe that our mental wellbeing is just as important as the products we use. Being bombarded with images of radiant, glowing skin can skew our perception of what is normal, causing socially constructed beauty standards that are piling on the pressures. We have a moral obligation to protect people from damaging marketing which is why we have a #BeExentrique campaign. All our products have a Be Exentrique message which means we will donate 10% of profits to causes inline with our values, mental health support, gender equality and less inequalities.
