KALME Undercoat £9.95
We all want to smell delightful for Valentines, however for many women, using perfumes is a risky business and can ruin a romantic night. Skin allergies to perfumes are on the rise. Rashes and swollen bits on the neck and décolletage are common problems that arise from wearing perfumes. The problem is that many people’s skin is sensitive and reacts easily to some fragrances, especially heavier ones. But now there is no need to worry what perfume you put on your skin as there is a solution to the problem.
KALME Undercoat is a unique new one-stop solution of skin reactions to fragrances as it contains a tetrapeptide ingredient called Skinasensyl, which has been dermatologically tested to reduce the nerve response to external irritants by decreasing the release of pro-inflammatory neuromediators in the skin. By doing this the skin’s tolerance is increased and sensations of pain and discomfort are reduced. Not just for Valentines but a fail safe for those with allergies to beauty products!
