DR Levy Switzerland 3 Deep Cell Renewal Micro Resurfacing Cleanser£39.00 Quick View
DR Levy Switzerland 3 Deep Cell Renewal Micro Resurfacing Cleanser
The Lowdown: The best cleanser I’ve tried to date, this gel wash contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids to gently ‘unglue’ the bonds of surface dead skin cells and brown rice particles, which help to mechanically get rid of dirt, pollutants and makeup. The micro-particles are incredibly soft and dissolve on skin so don’t aggravate sensitivities like broken capillaries. After just one wash, you’ll notice softer, brighter skin. Also if you use this, you don’t need a separate exfoliator as it does that job for you.

Regular use will leave the skin feeling super smooth, looking radiant and may reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Formulated with 18% glycolic acid and 2% lactobionic acid, which helps hydrate the skin, this brilliant cleanser never leaves skin feeling tight or dry – everyone from acne prone adults and men love it as it helps to prevent ingrown hairs from shaving. It also has Grapefruit extracts that work to help tone skin and give a super fresh feeling.
Medik8 C-Tetra Lipid Vitamin C Antioxidant Serum£37.00 Quick View
Medik8 C-Tetra Lipid Vitamin C Antioxidant Serum
The Lowdown: Vitamin C is a must for any anti-ageing regime as it protects skin against free radical damage (pollution, UVA and UVB rays), it helps brighten and to a certain extent also helps to fade brown blotches and pigmentation from blemishes. This particular product is one of the most effective I have tried to date and smells great too (quite citrusy). It contains Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, a super stable form of vitamin C plus soothing Vitamin E – it helps boost cell turnover for younger-looking skin and is completely non-comedogenic,( meaning it won’t clog pores). It sinks into skin effortlessly, layers seamlessly under any moisturizers or make up you want to put on top, leaving a radiant glow.
