As time goes on and seasons change, I always feel inclined to introduce new skincare bits into my routine, as we head into the Autumn season my skin requires some more love and care because the colder seasons mean that my skin becomes drier, flakier and more irritated. Throughout the Summer I can get away with reducing what I use and relying solely on serums and moisturisers, which isn’t totally the case when Autumn rolls around, this is why I’m always happy to try out new brands and new products.
I’ve noticed an increase in recent years of new brands coming out with similar initiatives but totally different branding vibes, there’s plenty of brands around that are caring for the environment and pushing a positive agenda to the customer, which in my opinion is fantastic, I love to see more of these types of shops opening and think that indie brands are the way to go nowadays.
So when I saw No Society, I immediately had the impression that it was going to be a brand that will stand out against the crowd. As I browsed the website I liked the simplicity, the ease and the togetherness of it all, I read about their mission and enjoyed what they were doing; to me it felt like a story was being told and we were all welcome to participate.
Who Are No Society?
No Society is a skincare brand that states it’s mission as being one to help the customer express themselves through their glow. The entire aesthetic of No Society reminds me of Korean streetwear; you can see where the inspiration lies with the way that No Society speaks about itself and through the imagery and use of descriptions. I feel like No Society is trying to tell a story, to have a narrative that allures the customer into feeling part of something.
No Society also use sustainable ingredients which is why I was so happy to take on this collaboration with them, being all vegan aligns perfectly with what I have been trying to convey to you guys over on here as of late and the products are also affordable, starting as low as £7.
But what did I actually think?
I’ve been suffering with really bad acne since the start of the year and have been choosing delicately what I put on my skin, I did feel like as well when No Society gave me the choice of selecting which products I wanted to use, I was confused as to whether or not the products were aimed at men or at women, so I chose safely and went with what I thought would benefit me, I went with a facial mist and moisturiser and a pair of socks.
The moisturiser definitely has a more manly scent to it, this doesn’t bother me personally because as long as something smells good, I have no issues with it, but I did feel like this one is more aimed at men, but it’s a good moisturiser that you don’t need to use too much product with, a little goes a long way, but I also did notice that it took a bit longer to dry than some other products that I own, which tells me that this is a more ideal product for after you get home from work or before you go to bed.
What I really like about this product though is how easy the application is, it’s not too thick or too watery so you can balance it out perfectly and cover your whole face easily, it also doesn’t irritate my skin at all and leaves no redness or soreness behind.
The bottle itself is pretty compact and would be alright to keep around in a handbag too, but this isn’t something I’d personally do due to how long it takes to dry on my skin.
The face mist, aptly named “Decent” is exactly that, it’s refreshing and smells great and feels like a really great top up when your skin starts to feel dry and scaly throughout the day, also if like me your skin starts to feel like its breaking, this is really helpful to use if you don’t have a suitable moisturiser nearby. This is definitely a product that I’ll carry around with me in my handbag too whether I’m going out socially or to work, I really like this product and I think it’s my favourite between this and the moisturiser. I’d buy this time and time again.
