We Tried Fācit, the Skincare Brand That Curates Products for YOU
With the amount of beauty products I get sent by brands, I could open up my own store.
Seriously—I have so many moisturizers, toners, eyeshadow palettes, false lashes, serums—you name it and I probably have it. With that being said, only a select few of the products I'm sent wind up being used on the reg because I love them.
The skincare brand Fācit ended up reaching out to me, and I was instantly intrigued because of the quiz they offer. Essentially, you answer some questions and they tell you what products would work best with your skincare wants and needs. Interested in finding out if Fācit is worth it? Keep reading for my full review!
Fācit is a super high-end skincare line, but at the fraction of the price as similar brands. They use cosmeceutical-grade ingredients and include no sulfates, parabens or phthalates. Plus, all of their products are vegan and gluten-free.
They offer individual products, or you can take their quiz, which tells you which line would work best for you. You'll either be recommended to try their "Glowing," "Radiant" or "Flawless" set.
Based on my answers to the quiz, the Glowing Skin Set ($165 every five months or $28 for a mini set) was going to be the answer to all my skin woes. I tend to have dry, dull skin, which is exactly what this set targets and helps.
Below, you'll find my breakdown of each individual product from the Glowing Skin Set.
Hydration Hero Daily Cleanser: $20
I'll be the first to admit I'm typically not the best at using a cleanser. It seems like such a hassle, and since I haven't been wearing makeup that often, I use that as an excuse to avoid it. However, there's something about following the steps that's fun. Weird? Maybe, but hey, it works for me and gets me to actually use it!
So, the first step of my routine every morning and night is the Hydration Hero Daily Cleanser. It's formulated with ingredients like cucumber, calendula, hyaluronic acid and B5. This cleanser is great for people with dry skin like me, because it won't dry out or leave your skin feeling dehydrated.
Smooth Operator Hyaluronic Acid Serum: $69.99
The second step in my morning and night routine is my favorite of the bunch—the Smooth Operator Serum. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love serums, and when they're loaded with hyaluronic acid (which is great for my dry skin), it's the icing on the cake.
In addition to HA, this serum is formulated with cucumber, arnica and chamomile, all of which work together to deeply penetrate the skin. I like using a beauty tool to really get this embedded in my skin, like a guasha tool or facial roller of some sort.
Dew You Hydracreme: $55
The third step of my morning and nighttime skincare routine is the Dew You Hydracreme. This moisturizer is pretty typical and goes on super smooth.
Some key ingredients include vitamin C, ferulic acid and algae extracts—all of which help with the production of collagen and smoothing and moisturizing the skin. I especially like the packaging of this product because there is no cap—you simply twist it.
Since I don't need an SPF at night, this is the last step for my nighttime routine with Fācit. I'll typically follow up with a facial oil and spray from another brand.
Protect & Correct SPF 30: $32
Last but not least, the fourth step of just my morning routine is the Protect & Correct SPF 30 Sunscreen. You can opt for a normal SPF or a tinted one. I went with the normal one in this case, but I'd be interested in finding out how the tinted one goes on.
This SPF is full of antioxidants, is comedogenic and is said to work for people with sensitive skin. My skin isn't super sensitive, so I can't speak to that, but I will say it feels glorious to put on in the mornings. I've even found it makes my foundation blend better (for those odd days I decide to wear makeup.)
I've been using the Glowing Skin Set from Fācit for over a month at this point, and I'm loving my skin. It feels way more hydrated than normal, and I don't find myself needing to apply moisturizer multiple times throughout the day.
If $165 seems like a bit too much to splurge on skincare, I'd recommend trying the mini set—and I think you'll be hooked. It truly is worth every penny.
