Most popular skincare 2022? We’re going to say yes, after all, now is the time for change and this one is disrupting the skincare market no end.
SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.3 Refining Night Cream
This perfect anti-ageing retinol product for first-time users is gentle enough for all skin types including those with sensitive or problematic skin. It simultaneously clears away impurities, speeds up cell renewal and hydrates skin cells so there’s no need to use an additional moisturiser.
Technologically advanced ingredients including encapsulated retinol and botanical extracts ensure that the maximum amount of retinol reaches and saturates the target area. A powerful duo, these stimulate cell regeneration overnight, meaning collagen production is activated. That’s why it’s so damn effective at visibly diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, blotchiness, and age spots. Best moisturiser 2022? Sure is!

A regenerating clinical-strength acid peel for use on the face, neck, hands, and chest to reveal healthy, radiant, youthful skin as well as softening the signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles.
Featuring A-lister ingredients like protective probiotics, moisture- retaining hyaluronic acid, soothing pro-vitamin B5 and aloe vera, this intelligent combination eases the deeper penetration of the ground-breaking youth-promoting, patented ArgaCellAcitv® ingredients.
Kelo-cote® Advanced Formula Scar Gel
If you’re feeling anxious or embarrassed about a scar, whether that’s because of acne, injury, operation, illness, pregnancy, body piercing or tattoo removal, this clinically proven topical 100% silicone gel is a must-have. Its star ingredient is Advanced Silliclear Complex, a powerful blend of silicones that cross-link and bond to your skin.
Kelo-cote® transparent gel treats new or old scars (up to 4 years old) and prevents the formation of abnormal scarring, including hypertrophic and keloid scars. It’s suitable for use on anyone, including children or those with sensitive skin. By creating a flexible, more breathable layer, this gives the scar a flatter, softer appearance, reduces discolouration and makes it less sensitive, painful, or itchy.
