Review: Flight Skincare


Flight Skincare is a family-owned Australian business in picturesque Gracetown, WA, which creates amazing infusions that really help create healthier, glowing skin.
I was recently fortunate enough to be sent some samples of Flight Skincare products by the lovely owner, Kym. I have been eyeing several of Flight's products for many months and was so excited for the opportunity to try them out. My thoughts are below...


Sheer Luxury Milk Cleanser
I was blown away by this cleanser. I am generally not a fan of milk/cream cleansers as they always seem to leave residue and aren't very effective at removing makeup. This cleanser certainly changed my mind. It has a very light fragrance and thin consistency, and removes makeup and sunscreen with ease. Also, no residue! It contains so many hydrating ingredients- shea nut butter, macadamia oil and camellia oil to name a few, and two of my favourite skincare ingredients; honey and white willow bark. I was initially worried that the inclusion of coconut oil would cause my skin to break out, as it normally does, but I am happy to report that this cleanser has actually helped keep my skin clear. As I massage it into my skin I notice it seems to pull any gunk out of my skin, similar to an oil cleanser but gentler. This is a definite purchase for me once I use up a few of my other cleansers.

Silk Protein Hydrating Day Cream
I admit that I have always been terrible at using a moisturiser underneath my daily sunscreen, and as a result, my skin is not as happy as it should be and dehydration lines are starting to increase on my forehead and around my eyes. I believe that everyone should pair a moisturiser with a zinc-based sunscreen, as zinc is notorious for being drying. Flight's day cream is luxurious and hydrating, and it appears to plump my skin, making my dehydration lines less noticeable. It contains ginseng, to stimulate cell growth, silk peptides to hold moisture in, and papaya which is antibacterial and full of antioxidants. The cream carries a faint scent of beautiful palmarosa and geranium, which I love. I would highly recommend this moisturiser to everyone.

Nourishing Night Cream
I never honestly thought I would find a moisturiser to rival my beloved Lily Loves Pearl, but the day has come. This moisturiser is hydrating, and seems to lightly tighten the skin, which is likely due to the amazing anti-ageing ingredients it boasts. It leaves a matte finish, which is great for those that are 'over' the oily residue that some moisturisers can leave. It contains marine collagen and olive leaf; which penetrate deeply into the skin, repairing connective tissue, watermelon seed; which is hydrating and rich in omega 6 + 9 and lycopene, and one of my favourite anti-ageing ingredients; coq10, which helps protect skin cells from damage. One thing I have noticed when using this moisturiser is that sometimes my face can be temporarily a little flushed after using. I think this is a great thing as I have only experienced this happen in one other product before (a face oil), and my skin responded fantastically to the increased blood flow that flushing causes, leading to increased healing and anti-ageing effects. I love this moisturiser and will definitely purchase in the future.

I have loved trying out these products by Flight, and it has only heightened my curiosity and lust over their products. I particularly love the look of the Lifting Eye Cream and the Eternal Anti-aging Serum, and hope to try them in the future.

  2. Great review! I find the creams too heavy for my skin type but I can see how it will suit more mature / drier & sensitive skin type. I love Flight! I miss the cleanser, and I've been using the exfoliator which I love so much.

    1. Thanks Asti! Have you tried any of the serums/oils? How does the exfoliator compare to any others you have tried?
