Bright, Colourful & Fights Breakouts | Funderm Skincare First Impressions

Danielle Levy, Funderm Skincare, Skincare blogger, Beauty blogger, Liverpool blogger, Wirral blogger,

Looking at me now you would never believe that way back in my teen years I was never a girly girl who was really into skincare and makeup. I think my first introduction into skincare was Simple and Nivea products but I remember even back then that going into your local Superdrug or Boots, the skincare aisles were unrecognisable compared to now and there weren't that many options for younger skin. Over the past couple of weeks I've been adding some Funderm products into my current skincare routine and I thought I would share with you all what I thought of them.

Funderm have launched on the skincare industry with the plan to completely disrupt the way we care for our skin with their 'in&out' solution that offers a skincare solution made for every sex, skin type or colour to give everyone beautiful & vital skin. We all know that what we put into our body is just as important as what we put on our skin and Funderm have smashed that out of the park with their 'in&out' solution which combines the topical skincare products with the ingestible Lavi Davi gummies to give you an exclusive mix of Prebiotics &  Probiotics that are designed to help you maintain a balanced microbiome and strong immune system. 

My Experiences
The lovely folks at Funderm sent me a few of their skincare range as well as the Lavi Davi gummies to put to the test and hopefully save my poor maskne-prone skin. I thought I would share my initial thoughts of how I've gotten on with the Funderm products and then feature a more in-depth review once I've had chance to use them a bit more long-term. For anyone that hasn't seen any of my other blog posts talking about my maskne, my skin is normally on the drier side but I am prone to breakouts so you can imagine that the breakouts have just gotten worse since I've had to put a mask on for hours at a time.

My top two favourite products are definitely the No Drama clay mask and the Clean Master toner. I am a huge fan of face masks and I've really come to love clay face masks for when my skin has completely freaked out and broken out. I either use the No Drama clay mask as an all over face mask or I multi-mask and pop the clay mask on the areas that have broken out then pop a hydrating face mask where I tend to get more dry skin. It is packed with Funderm's Prebiotic & Probiotic complex, a blend of fruit & plant extracts, salicylic acid and dead sea water to balance out your skin and unify your complexion. I've been using the No Drama clay mask roughly once a week (when I'm good with remembering) for about 5 minutes (or a bit longer if I forget) and I've noticed that my skin looks calmer and the redness is reduced. Normally with a clay mask if you forget to wash it off, it can get really tight and uncomfortable but with No Drama clay mask it doesn't make your skin feel tight even after you've washed it off. 

For me facial toners have always been a step in my skincare routine that I've always kind of missed out and I always forget to buy one to add into my skincare routine but since the Funderm products landed on my doorstep, I've been adding the Clean Master toner into my daily routine. The Clean Master toner is designed to purify your skin, boost hydration and balance your skin's microbata. I've been using it morning and night after I've washed my face and I've noticed that I haven't ended up with any redness or irritation and my skin feels refreshed and soft whereas sometimes when I've washed my face I notice that some areas can become dry and tight.

I remember back when I got into skincare in my late teens that one of my go-to products was a spot treatment for breakouts but as I've gotten older I've switched to focusing more on the actual routine itself and less on the on the spot treatment but I do love having one on hand so that if I get a bad spot on day I can pop a little bit on. Since I was having a bad episode of breakouts, I thought I would take the opportunity to test out the Funderm Was Bad anti-pimple gel. It contains salicylic acid, dead sea water, witch hazel and vitamin B3 to help clear breakouts, soothe irritated skin and restore your skin. I usually use spot treatments in the morning before I do my makeup so I was a little bit worried before I tried out the Was Bad anti-pimple gel that it might show up or my makeup may sit different on top of it but thankfully it clears to be completely invisible. My only tip is that you only need to use a tiny amount of gel on each breakout as I noticed that on the days when I didn't wear makeup, when I touched or rubbed my skin on the areas that I'd used a fair amount on, the product pilled up on my skin. 

When did you first get into skincare?
