Skinician is a skincare brand that was founded back in 2009 by mother and daughter team Hilary McMurray and Shelley Martin. They created products that fitted into their time compressed, busy lifestyles and that most importantly, gave them the results they were looking for. Skinician is a professional cosmeceutical skincare brand that offers a less confused approach to skincare and whose products don't cost the earth. Harnessing the power of science and nature, Skinician products combine the finest natural ingredients with clinically proven powerhouse actives for the most effective results and all products are dermatologically tested, cruelty free, vegan and paraban free.
I was very kindly sent a couple of their products to try, and the first one I am going to talk about today is the Skinician Advanced Pro-Radiance Enzyme Peel* (£29.00 for 50ml). This product is suitable for ageing, dull and dehydrated skin and is formulated with AHA's and fruit enzymes. The Advanced Pro-Radiance Enzyme Peel works to remove dry, dead skin cells from the surface of the skin to promote skin renewal and skin brightening for a more youthful and even complexion. Key actives include fruit acids and enzymes including Passionfruit, Grape and Pineapple acids to gently dissolve dry, dull skin cells for brighter, more youthful skin, Nepal Oligosaccharides, which are proven to add luminosity to the skin and help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and Allantoin to soothe, protect and calm sensitive skin whilst accelerating skin healing. The Peel comes in a squeezy tube and it can be used 2-3 times a week after cleansing the skin thoroughly as part of your skincare regime. You simply apply a generous and even amount of product to the face and neck, leave for 10-15 minutes and then remove with water. The results will be a glowy, youthful complexion and with consistent use you will notice less fine lines and wrinkles. Even though this contains AHA's, it is a gentle yet excellent form of exfoliation to keep your skin super smooth and fresh.
The second product I have been trying out is the Skinician Advanced Eye Repair* (£36.50 for 15ml), which is suitable for ageing skin along with those who suffer from dark circles or puffiness around the eyes. This is a lightweight, triple action eye cream which has been specially formulated to target the main signs of ageing, sagging skin, reduce puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles and diminish the appearance of dark circles to leave your eyes looking brighter and more youthful looking. Key actives include EyeRevite, a peptide complex proven to stimulate lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness, significantly reduce eye bags and increase tone and firmness, HydraAdvance, to penetrate deep into the outer layer of the skin for instant hydration that lasts up to 30 hours, Shea Butter to nourish, support tissue repair and protect against environmental damage and Cucumber to provide an anti-inflammatory and soothing effect and to alleviate puffiness. The Eye Repair comes in a smart bottle that has a pump applicator to help you control the amount of product you are dispensing and you can use it twice a day, both morning and night, by taking your ring finger and applying the formula gently around the eye socket and patting the eye bone. I have suffered from dark circles most of my life, which I think is probably hereditary, so whilst I can't get rid of them completely, this has definitely made a difference to my eye area, which now looks a lot less darker and I no longer get any puffiness around the eyes, no matter how much sleep I have or haven't had. A top tip of mine is to keep eye products in the fridge so that when you apply them in a morning, they are extra cooling, soothing and refreshing.
Skinician also offer some lovely beauty tools and accessories and I was kindly sent the Skinician Luxury Skincare Headband* (£7.00). This is by far the softest, most luxurious headband I have come across, and it is super comfortable and doesn't slip down like some headbands do. It has a velcro fastening and so it is completely size customisable and is a great way to keep stray hairs away from your face whilst applying your skincare.
