Review: LP Skin Therapy Uplifting Facial Water

I never really submitted to the "freshener" trend. As a girl who usually struggles keeping the oils off her face, I wasn't really up for adding more liquid or dewiness to it throughout the day. However, it's like my dad says - once you experience one thing that you think works really well, your mindset completely changes.

LP Skin Therapy Uplifting Facial Water


My my, where to start. This is the (mini-sized) brain child of psychodermatologist Dr. Linda Papadopoulos (you can read more about when I visited her lovely home here), and has its place in her skincare line as a toner. However, it's so much more.

So what does it do..?

The thing that sets it apart from other toners, is because of its functions on the go. I use this throughout the day on days when I'm not wearing make-up, and when my skin is feeling grubby as the day goes on. It's a quick-fix as it removes the grime without tightening your skin like cleansers do, and it's so easy to use on the go because of the high-quality spray. However, I really experienced the best of this product when I was on the plane - it was perfect to restore moisture, and to freshen up.

Don't get me wrong, as a toner, it's brilliant. I spray a cotton pad with this, and run it over my face after I cleanse, and it makes me lose hope in all cleansers - I kid you not, this thing picks up EVERYTHING. It's simply incredible.

On top of that, it hydrates and freshens with aloe vera and hibiscus extract, and also contains cortisols which will trick your skin into believing it's not stressed and will therefore reduce the symptoms of stress on your skin.

Smell..?

It smells amazing. It smells of orange blossom, which Linda's grandma used to boil and clean the kids' faces with when they came back from playing outside. It reminds me of holiday, representative of a warm climate, and for me personally, it's a scent I've smelt before perhaps in the Philippines - but I can't exactly put my finger on what. It's a relaxing, refreshing smell, and part of LP Skin Therapy's aims to reduce stress levels in your skin.

Any final thoughts..?

I simply couldn't rave about this product enough. It's an absolute godsend for people who want that freshness during the day - both in terms of smell and effect, this product absolutely delivers both. Although what I have is the mini size that comes in their trial kit, I can wholeheartedly say that I will be purchasing this in full size.

The 120mL Uplifting Facial Water comes in the most gorgeous packaging, and retails for £15, which I think is a bargain compared to most fresheners on the market. You can also try the whole line for around £20 on QVC, or alternatively purchase products on KMI's website.

Linda will be on QVC tomorrow, 11th of September at 7pm if you fancy learning more! :)

    1. I think it'll work as a fixer too perhaps! It's great as a freshener though, it smells so pretty! :)
