Finding the right skincare for you is always a tricky task, as everyone has different skin types, concerns and product preferences. This is where trial and travel kits come in. Besides the fact that you'll always get value for money, the products inside are just the best way to familiarise yourself with the brand and a specific range. When Pai launched their 'Anywhere Essentials Collection' I immediately placed an order for their Perfect Balance kit, as I've always been meaning to try more of the brand and what better excuse did I need?
What's so great about Pai is that they really care for the well-being of your skin, formulating them for the most sensitive and allergy-prone skin. My Mum is allergic to pretty much anything in premium and main-stream skincare, but hasn't complained about itchiness or sudden redness ever since I converted her. It's a nasties-free brand (see this page for a full list of ingredients they don't use) and actually the first brand to ever list their ingredients list in 'spoken' English. Transparency at it's best.
In total there are 4 different sets, Instant Calm for sensitive skin, Pure Hydration for those who lack moisture, Perfect Balance for combination, oily and acne-prone skin and Age Confidence for mature skin.
Perfect Balance contains a muslin cloth, their award-winning Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser, which is packed (or 'bursting') with Omega 3 and the Vitamins A, B and E – replenishing the skin's moisture and leaving the skin soft and smooth. I've tried the latter about 3 years ago and fell in love, I guess it was about time I repurchased it. Their Rice Plant & Rosemary BioAffinity Skin Tonic is packed with antioxidants and minerals that calm and purify the skin and their Geranium & Thistle Rebalancing Day Cream is the 'Perfect Balance' in the kit, as it cools, calms and clears congested skin. A miracle cure? I'm not sure, but I'll keep you posted.
Intrigued? At the moment Pai is celebrating National Sister Day in a grant way, as each purchase over £40/€50/$70 will receive a free Anywhere Essentials Kit if you use the code 'SISTERSHARE' (code valid until 3rd of August). Great to actually share it with your sister, mum, aunt, friend —or simply as an extra treat for yourself.
