Kris D'Amour Skincare Reviews

10 Dec 2013

After seeing Ana review some products from Kris D'Amour I knew I had to try some straight away. Kris followed me on Twitter and he kindly agreed to send me some products to consider for review. I was over the moon when he said he would send me a body butter and a body oil as I love oils and they both sounded so lovely! I received the parcel so lovely packaged up in a gift bag & box with a lovely envelope and red tissue paper.


Kris D'Amour is a brand I had never heard of before but his products sounded so lovely I'm glad I found out about it. All of the products are made by Kris Wronski, a professional Medical Scientist who has spent the last 12 years studying and working at Leeds University Hospital. He decided to develop his skincare range after suffering from his own skin conditions. He has a variety of products that are suitable for a range of skin conditions and they are 100% natural, safe and effective.


I'll start off with the body butter and leave my favourite until last! I was sent the Rejuvenating Body Treatment Butter* which is the range I asked for as I thought it sounded like the nicest one even though it's best for mature or ageing skins, I just liked the sound of the scent of it. It is quite a strong floral scent and would be more suited for more mature ladies in my opinion (the target range anyway) but I am definitely getting used to the scent. The body butter itself is a very thick formula but once you rub it into your skin it melts instantly and feels so moisturising. It's so easy to rub in, you only need the smallest amount and it feels so luxurious. This anti-ageing essential contains oils of: Frankincense, Rosewood, Neroli, Jasmine, Carrot Seed and plant extracts of Goji Berry, Ginseng, Gotu Kola, Ginkgo and Olive Leaf and has quite a more floral scent than I was expecting but its such a lovely product and you can never start anti-ageing too soon in my opinion! I was also sent sample pots of the Skin Repair Body Butter which I love the scent of and the Soothing Body Butter which smells similar to the oil and is just lovely. All of these treatment butters melt onto the skin and sink in beautifully as you can see they leave a lovely glow to the skin. 














I saved the best until last; the Soothing Body Oil* is like heaven in a bottle. It smells absolutely divine and is just such a brilliant product. I love the packaging, the scent, the consistency and it is full of nourishing goodness. I will definitely be taking this on holiday with me to Colorado as it's so moisturising and my skin will definitely need it in the minus temperatures! It has been specifically formulated to treat dry, eczema prone skin as well as to create a soothing and calming effect on the body and mind. It contains soothing oils such as Calendula, Chamomile, Lavendar and Rose extracts and is rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-inflammatory agents which will help improve skin's elasticity, restore radiance, calm and revitalize your skin. It also contains Sea Buckthorn oil which is known as a miracle oil which helps to calm, repair, heal and promote cell regeneration. Other ingredients include Rosehip, Hempseed, Avocado, Castor, Wheatgerm and Vitamin E. All of these natural plant oils are just so luxurious in this body oil and I can't explain how gorgeous this smells. It's a sort of warm, woody scented product and sinks into the skin so quickly so you can put your clothes on straight after which is great. It also has anti-bacterial properties so this has been working great with my eczema on my hands and I would definitely recommend this if you suffer from dry or eczema prone skin. I noticed a difference the next day!



If you are looking for a natural, preservative free brand then this is the brand for you! What I love about the website is that all of the ingredients are listed but they have the benefits listed next to them which makes an interesting read! I would high recommend this brand to anyone looking for natural luxurious products at a great price. He also makes bath oils, facial oils as well as personalised perfumes which would make wonderful Christmas presents! The Soothing Body Oil retails at £29.00 for 100ml and the Rejuvenating Body Treatment Butter is £16.00 for 100g.
