Recently Beauty Babe, Rayne, tested out 3 products from a range of skincare products called Skinderm for six weeks. Below she shares her thoughts…
The Skinderm range is a Cosmeceutical product, which means that the active ingredients are delivered to the deeper layers of the skin. The range is a simple collection of effective skin health programs, targeting your personal skin issues with the latest scientific know-how – the side effect is noticeable results!
Fit skin is living skin!
The range consists of:
• Pure products to cleanse.
• Elixirs to optimise.
• Daily Diet to moisturise and hydrate.
I reviewed the following products; pure exfoliating glo pads, pure clarifying mask and the clarifying+ elixir.
First off the Pure Clarifying Mask (R280) is a deep cleansing clay mask suitable for all skin types that assists with detoxifying the skin, removing impurities to help clear congestion, whilst boosting skin.
Being blessed with the severely dry skin that I have, clay masks are not the best suited to my skin type. Due to this, I did not attempt a full face treatment with the mask but I did use it to spot treatment. When I had a bit of a breakout I applied this mask to only the affected area and it worked really well. It definitely helped bring the irritation and notice-ability of the blemish down.
The above mask IS in fact advertised as suitable for all skin types. I agree and disagree due to the above situation. I would not advise to apply this all over if you have dry or dehydrated skin. If you are using it the way I used it I would give a big thumbs up!
Next up. The star of the show for me!!
These Pure Exfoliating Glo Pads contain powerful AHA and BHA to remove dry, dull and tired skin cells. Mulberry extract evens out skin tone to reveal a smooth and radiant complexion.
The exfoliating glo pads (R395) are INCREDIBLE and I made sure to stretch them out over about 40 days even though there are only 30 days worth.
Again, these are noted as suitable for all skin types and I would agree. Along with fabulously dry and parched skin, I have also developed mildly sensitive skin in my 25th year on this earth. These exfoliating glo pads did not cause irritation or anything along those lines.
The last product could not have come at a better time in my skin journey. The Clarifying+ Elixir (R465) regulates sebum production and alleviates pore congestion. An ultra-soothing serum formulated with cooling Mint extract and a blend of Neem and Boswelia oil to help calm and soothe uncomfortable , irritated and inflamed skiN.
The Clarifying+ Elixir is aimed towards people with oily skin but I definitely saw the benefits on my own skin when using it. My skin has been congested and clogged up and both this and the glo pads SERIOUSLY helped with this. I felt this was a great second-last product before applying my moisturiser. It does not need an age to sink in the way some other serum products do and my skin practically slurps it up as soon as it is smoothed on.
So would I recommend these Skinderm products?
The exfoliating glo pads, YES!
The clay mask would get a maybe for dry skinned people, but I would highly recommend it for oily peeps.
Lastly, I really loved the serum, yet I will probably opt for the Anti-ageing+ Elixir (R580) next time.
