New year new you is what seems to be on a lot of peoples lips, eating healthy, heading out to the gym or buying a fitness dvd, its all about health and feeling good. A lot of people forget that you also need to ensure you are looking after your skin, one of my resolutions last year was to make sure that I had a skincare routine, a resolution I actually stuck by and am continuing! So when I get offered to review a skincare product I get super excited as love finding out about new brands products available, and more importantly I love sharing them with you so here is a new brand to me *HEALGEL, a brand created by British plastic and cosmetic surgeons, an actor, and dermatologist biochemist a varied team!
Healgel is an aqueous gel that "soothes, repairs and protects skin", I was lucky enough to try the following two products.
Healgel Face, an "anti-ageing formula for firmer, smoother and replenished skin". This creamy white gel sinks into the skin beautifully, it made my skin feel smoother and the scent reminded me of walking into an essential oil boutique, with a scent of lavender which isn't overpowering and it contains Omega oils to "nourish dehydrated skin and restore elasticity". This product also contains Arnica and Madecassoside with "powerful peptides and biodynes to initiate a uniquely soothing and collagen boosting process" with added hyaluronic acid. This sounds like a bottle of heaven for my skin! I would recommend this to you lovely blog readers, but don't expect drastic changes to the skin, it isn't a miracle gel or a product that would transform but it is a product that makes the skin feel hydrated, soft and smooth, it has a handy pump and I like the clean simple packaging. I applied this at night time and in the morning, whenever I woke after applying it my skin would appear brighter and soft so I would say give it a go as its a lovely all rounder. Priced at £48.00.
Healgel Eye a product to "lift, brighten and revive" formulated to "help diminish the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines". This gel isn't as creamy as the face product, it feels water based and I did find this product did not sink into the eye area as I hoped so felt like I was patting away for a while. The product has a subtle herb scent with a hint of lemon which was pleasant, it states it is "instantly lifting", I wouldn't say it does that as I wouldn't say it was botox in a bottle which I imagine is instant. It is a gel that I would be interested to do a before and after photo with, where I could see if it actually makes a difference to my fine lines as I didn't notice much difference, it felt cool and it was good to use as a makeup base as it wasn't sticky which I dislike with a lot of eye products. This product contains peptides, biodynes, hydraulic acid, Arnica and Madecassoside liposome which also feature in the face product, it also contains a "light diffusing element to give a youthful radiance", I would say it adds a light glow to the skin area which helps my dark circles! I would not pay £32.00 for this as it didn't wow me for that price tag, have you tried this? If so what did you think?
