"This Works was created in 2003 by former Beauty Director of Vogue UK and International journalist, Kathy Phillips, as an antidote to modern life, its impact on skin and wellbeing. The result was and is a collection of high quality, efficacious products that deliver on their promise without using unnecessary chemicals, that work with your natural Circadian Rhythm to support and maximize skin performance 24 hours a day. This Works was among the pioneer brands to replace sulfates, phthalates, GMOs and parabens with cleaner alternatives."

I recently had the pleasure of testing out This Works Stress Check range which contains a Face Oil, Hair Elixir, Breath In and a Face Mask. These products are meant to de-stress our mental and physical stress in check. Stress can take a toll on our skin and hair lack of sleep, late night snacks which is usually junk food it's all bad for our overall health. When I'm stressing out my skin, produce more oil, and it looks very dull. I also noticed my hair sheds more than usual. I have, to be honest, my days are filled with many chores, emails, editing photos and so many other things that really puts the pressure on me on a daily basis. So these Stress Check products really peaked my interest, and I immediately put them to the test!

First, up is the Stress Check Face Oil it's clinically proven to provide immediate redness relief even on sensitive skin, this calming and hydrating oil is a Super concentrated blend featuring Pure Botanicals oils, Vitamin C and E and Omega 3. This oil is housed in a thick white glass bottle with a dropper applicator. My skin can get irritated easily, and I find this oil very soothing, and it calms the redness on my cheeks. It's very lightweight and fast absorbing and not to mention how amazing it smells. This is meant to be used in the morning, but since I have combination oily skin, I use it during my night time routine. This oil didn't clog my pores or break me out which some oil tends to do, and I only use a drop of this cause a little goes a long way.

I love anything that smells like lavender, and this has notes of Lavender, Coconut, Neroli, and Eucalyptus it's an instant mood changer. And even my husband loves how it smellsI apply this on my wrist I try not to over do it cause it can be a bit overpowering so one or two rolls would do it. Since it's small and compact, it's easy to carry in my purse. This is also one of their best selling product that is now in their new Stress Check range.

This Works Stress Check Face Mask is instantly cooling and calming and it contains This Works signature Bio-Boost botanical oil blend as well as Peppermint Extract. Antioxidant-rich Turmeric Oil and extract of Giant Hyssop and Rose Root help to protect skin from internal and external stressors. I really love the packaging of this mask it comes in a sleek tube and an on and off twist top. This is a morning mask, but again due to my oily skin, I prefer using it during my night time routine. I apply this mask whenever my skin is irritated it really helps soothe the redness on my cheeks. You can use this mask and leave it on for 10 minutes or leave it on as an overnight treatment which is what I do. I feel my skin benefits from using it as an overnight treatment as opposed to leaving it on for only 10 min. It's easy to apply, this lightweight mask leaves skin revived, hydrated, smooth and radiant. Also, its unique aromatherapeutic blend of Neroli, Patchouli, Lavender, Vetivert, and Camomile, helps to relieve mental and physical tension and stress.

Overall
I really enjoyed the Stress Check range all the products are free of Phthalates, Sulphates, Synthetic Colors and Fragrance, Parabens, GMOS, Mineral Oils, Petrolatum, and Propylene Glycol. Stress can cause damage to our skin and health, so anything to help with de-stressing sounds riveting. By no means, these products will eliminate your stress completely however it can reduce it by providing a soothing and calming atmosphere. 

Whenever I'm stressed, I like to take a break and just read a book or clean up my vanity. Please leave a comment below and share how do you like to de-stress. I would love to hear all about it!
