This is a low strength peel that chemically eats away at your dead skin cells to reveal new smooth skin. I feel my skin is hydrated and smooth after I use this but without any irritation or sensitivity. You can leave it on over night but probably better to layer on a moisturiser as it isn't as hydrating for my combo dehydrated skin. Smells amazing though.
I use this a few times a week. My skin glows and feels so clean and fresh. It does sometimes sting a little, almost like a tingle but it is not enough to cause irritation or stop me from using it! My skin is smooth and healthy. I'm buying this for some of my friends for Christmas and I'm sure they will get hooked on it just as I am!
I have been using this cleanser for a few years now and am yet to find something just as effective for its price. I use this with my Foreo every night to remove my makeup before properly cleansing. I highly recommend this product - it’s super gentle and great for all skin types.
I use this serum if I've had a bad breakout and don't want to apply anything too harsh on my skin. I also use it as my serum for a couple of days after I have a peel done. I can't say I think it's effective enough to use all the time, however it's safe enough to use when my skin is in distress and I don't want to skip my skincare regime.
I have purchased, and repurchased time and again - it ticks every box! If you're oily, prone to congestion and dullness, this will help manage your skin without stripping it (so long as you're careful how you use it). My skin, like everyone, changes with the seasons so during winter I use it once-twice a week and every second day during summer. I think it works best at night and when paired with a nourishing oil-free moisturise (like Skinceuticals Renew), and avoid using with a retinol. The icing on the cake is that you truly only need a pea-sized amount, and it will last you close to a year.
I used to use this when i was in my late teens, early twenties. Good light exfoliant that can be used on its own or even mixed in with your cleanser for a deeper cleanse. It can be gritty so using with damp hands/face is the way to go to minimize irritation.
I don't like the way this feels on my skin. I can't explain it but it feels a little 'too much' and afterwards my skin was always bright red. I don't have sensitive skin but i do find this scrub too harsh for me. Plus i do not like the smell and find it smells too chemically. I ended up using this on my body on areas that needed it but i wouldn't use it on my face again.
I use this whenever my skin needs a detox, though i only leave on for just under 10 mins as any longer and i find it too drying. When removing and massaging in the product i only focus on my nose and chin, if i do it everywhere i find it can make my skin a little irritated. I use it once a week to once a fortnight and that works well.
I’ve only been using this product a few weeks so not seeing the full effects yet but you can tell the quality of the ingredients straight away.
It has a warm tingling sensation when applied which is what I want from a potent vitamin c.
I have an oily skin type and find this is ok on its own or sealed in with a light moisturiser - it does have a slightly tacky consistency
You can see the the difference in your skin within half an hour of applying, it makes your skin so glowy and has cleared up little pesky dry spots I've had. It does tingle slightly but just feels like its working on the skin, definitely recommend!
This is my fave type of primer - silicone slip with a mattifying effect - and I find the best type for my desired look and products. I was really happy with this formula, and it's SPF is a massive bonus! Now I can be protected on days when I'm getting only small incidental amounts of sun exposure without having to layer on my heavier weight sunscreen. This is great under make-up, but also fantastic on no-make-up days when I want to knock down shine and even my skintone.
This is now the only physical exfoliant product I will use - it puts all others to shame! It's thorough yet gentle - it feels like the particles are fine but don't have sharp or rough edges that irritate my skin. I use it most mornings and my skin is looking the best it has ever looked. I vary how much I use vs how much water to adjust the intensity of the scrub each day. I also sometimes scrub the residue on my hands on elbows or upper arms to help reduce and smooth dry skin and bumps.
This cleanser, amoung other Medik8 products, fixed my adult hormonal acne completely! I have tried many other high end product ranges and this was the only one that fixed the deep acne cysts I started getting at 26 for some reason. Now all I ever get a tiny whiteheads and if I ever due get a pimple around the time of the month, it's clearly not deep and goes away really quickly. Can't rave about this brand enough!
