Skingredients was created by my mate Jennifer Rock, who also happens to be a brilliant facialist, an award-winning skin tutor and CEO of The Skin Nerd including Nerd Network and Cleanse Off Mitt. Underachiever. 🙂
Formulated to be used by all ages and skin types with active ingredients that nourish, protect and maintain a healthy skin barrier, the philosophy behind Skingredients is that your skincare routine should be like a balanced dinner plate of the ingredients that skin benefits from – in theory, what you’re putting into the inside should be going on the outside too.
Think of it as a balanced skin diet, a capsule skincare collection made up of the key ingredients that we all need in our skincare, featuring the ‘Core 4’ as well as Mix + Match products so that your skincare wardrobe is customisable to you. The Skingredients Core 4 is the basis of any Skingredients skincare recipe, with a cleanser, pre-serum, serum and of course SPF, and incorporates vitamins, fats, fruit, veg and botanical extracts for healthy skin.
Skingredients is cruelty-free, fragrance-free and vegan.

SKINGREDIENTS / THE SKIN NERD CLEANSE OFF MITT, £6
If you managed to bag one of my Summer Kits you will be well aware of the Cleanse Off Mitt. The idea is that you can simply use with warm tap water to remove your makeup, including mascara, or you can utilise it as a pre-cleansing tool. Washable, reusable, and brilliant for travel, or those unexpected moments when you find yourself in need of a cleanse and have nothing to hand, and wouldn’t dream of using a wipe (the actual horror). You can of course use this alongside your usual cleanser as your mitt/facecloth.

Sally Cleanse is formulated for those with excess oil, blackheads, whiteheads and lumps and bumps in any form across your entire body. It’s a versatile product and can also be used as a wash-off spot treatment or as a quick mask. Don’t be tempted to over-use it, follow the instructions.
