I was asked to try the Edelweiss Travel Kit from Siin. I was so intrigued after visiting the site, I had to give it a try. Siin is an innovative skin care range from Austria. Edelweiss (named after the mountain flowering plant) extract that has been added to the range of skin care products. I like the idea of a flower, which blooms whatever harsh mountainous weather throws at it being used in skin care. Edelweiss has been used as a healing remedy for century’s, so it makes sense that they have developed this in a skin care range.
Edition Edelweiss harnesses the power of over 40 unique active ingredients found naturally
in the Edelweiss plant in a high dosage siin complex of precious active ingredients. These
ingredients have an antibacterial effect, are high in antioxidants and reduce harmful free
radicals. The flavonoids and tannins in Edelweiss promote skin tightening, stimulate blood
circulation and encourage cell renewal.
Edelweiss is a rare and protected flower and the plants used for Edition Edelweiss are grown
in controlled organic farming plantations. The unique variety used here is patented and
As this was a travel kit, I decided to bring it with me, whist I was away on a spa break. I also used it the day before and after the break, so to give it a thorough test. There still seems to be plenty in the containers, as a little goes a long way I found.
First up :
Edition Edelweiss Milky Cleansing: (30ml)
Energised Alpine spring water is combined with our unique Edelweiss extract to deeply, but gently cleanse your skin. Vitamin-rich Goji fruit provides vitamins C, A (Retinol) and B, is blended with extract of Ginseng root to strengthen and protect your skin.
It left my skin feeling cleansed, but not tight, and I definitely felt clean afterwards and refreshed. I used it morning and evening.
Dampen your face. Mix a small blob of Edition Edelweiss Milky Cleansing in your hands with a little water. Smooth over your face, neck and décolletage, massaging in gently with small, circular movements. Rinse off, pat dry and follow-up with our Edition Edelweiss Spring Tonic.
Edition Edelweiss 24h Essence Cream: (30ml)
Our 24h Essence Cream is quickly absorbed by your skin to give an instant boost to tired skin. Brightens and revives tired, dull skin with its deeply moisturising ingredients to highlight your skins natural luminescence. Edition Edelweiss 24h Essence Cream is the final step in your daily siin beauty ritual.
This was a lovely moisturiser, lighter than the ones I am used to using, but sank into the skin really well. I think I would have preferred something more suitable for my very dry skin though. I did enjoy using it, but had to switch to my normal night cream in the evenings. I don’t wear foundation, but sometimes if I’m going out a little BB/CC cream or Touche Eclat, and that went on very well afterwards.
Apply Edition Edelweiss 24h Essence Cream in the morning and evening to your face and neck, then massage in gently. Edition Edelweiss 24h Essence Cream is also the perfect base for your make-up.
Overall I really liked the kit, and it was interesting trying it out, both felt luxurious to touch when you use them, and smelt amazing. I thought the packaging was simple and understated. The two 30ml creams are priced at £52.90, so definitely a luxury price tag.
