Docteur Renaud – Carrot Discovery Kit
Earlier this year I reviewed the fabulous Carrot Scrub Detox from Docteur Renaud here on Beauty Best Friend blog. Docteur Renaud is a French natural cosmetology brand founded in 1947 and is now part of the Nuxe Group. The products all contain active ingredients taken from fruits, vegetables and flowers – some of which include raspberries, apricots, coconut and carrots.
As I loved it so much I was recently sent this cute Carrot Discovery Kit* to try out as it contains two carrot moisturisers as well as the Carrot Scrub Detox.
The kit, called ‘My Glowing Complexion Programme’, contains a 20ml tube of the Carrot Scrub Detox and mini 5ml samples of both Carrot Radiance Boost Day Cream and Carrot Renewing Night Cream, all nestled together inside a cardboard box decorated with carrots!
I won’t go into full detail again about the Carrot Scrub Detox as you can read my full review here. I do have to say though that it’s a great exfoliator and it feels quite luxurious when you use it. I love the sweet scent, although I don’t think it smells of carrots!
Both the Carrot Radiance Boost Day Cream and Carrot Renewing Night Cream are a very pale orange in colour and have a lovely light sweet scent. The Day Cream contains Vitamin C which is an antioxidant and it helps to smooth skin. Other natural ingredients include Organic Carrot Extract and Brown Algae Extract. My skin definitely feels plump and radiant after using this moisturiser, I think it suits my combination skin well.
The Carrot Renewing Night Cream is quite light and non-greasy and can be used as a mask too – just apply a slightly thicker layer than normal before bed then rinse away any residue in the morning. I’ve been applying it as a moisturiser before bed and using it as a mask on my forehead which has been quite dry and crepey since we turned the central heating on. This is another lovely product and for the last few nights I’ve thought that my skin has looked fresh and bright at bedtime which doesn’t happen very often with a new baby in the house!
Individually these are all great skincare products and this little kit is a great way to try out the Docteur Renaud brand. The only downside is the inconsistency in the size of the products – used twice a week the Carrot Scrub Detox will probably last 2-3 months, whereas used once a day both of the moisturisers will probably only last 1-2 weeks.
Docteur Renaud Carrot Discovery Kit is priced at £9, available from Skin Evolution. Also available is an Iris Anti-Ageing Discovery Kit which includes an Iris Lift Mask, Iris Lift Cream and Iris Lift Serum.
