It’s only since I’ve been blogging that I’ve come across the concept of cosmeceuticals. (Physicians and skincare professionals define cosmeceuticals as products on the cutting-edge between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.)
I’d heard the brand name SkinCeuticals but hadn’t encountered it head on until I saw the range at the Omniya Health & Beauty Mediclinic in Knightsbridge and since then at practically every clinic I’ve attended for a facial I’ve seen the brand used as part of the routine. It’s definitely highly regarded in the business.
So a few weeks back I remembered that I’d brought a couple of SkinCeuticals products home with me and decided to weave the Skin Ceuticals Metacell Renewal B3 into my daily routine.
Metacell Renewal B3 is a daily emulsion aimed at correcting the appearance of the early signs of photoaging so that tone looks reclarified, surface looks retightened and skin looks radiant. It contains a high concentration of multi-corrective actives with 5% niacinamide (B3) and 2.5% tri-peptide concentrate. Its advance delivery system promises to :
- Help to stimulate surface skin cell renewal
- Support natural hyaluronic acid synthesis
- Help to reduce discolouration
- Enhance skin’s firmness and reduces fine lines
SkinCeuticals products may bridge the divide between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals but the presentation is top notch and there is little of the medical look in evidence. The Metacell Renewal B3 is presented in a heavy-weight glass bottle that is an asset to my beauty shelf and I love using it. I applied it at the serum stage of my regime before my moisturiser although Skinceuticals recommend a slightly different 3 stage regimen of Prevent, Correct and Protect with the Metacell Renewal B3 acting as the corrective stage.
The product is described as an emulsion which I would describe as a light weight moisturiser. It sank into my skin quickly and made it feel smoother and tighter. Over a week or so my skin looked brighter too. So all good on that front. I should say though that all this goodness does come at a price £96 for 50 ml here. So you’ll definitely want to make sure it’s the right product for you and how best to work it into your skin care regime before you buy.
You’ll find there is more on-line here to help you and of course you can visit professionals such as Omniya here.
Have you come across SkinCeuticals? I can’t wait to try the Retexturising Activator Serum next.
Looking forward to reading your comments.
