eBay’s Best Kept Skincare Secret?

Just a quick post today as I wanted to share with you a shop I’ve used for years for purchasing peels.  I think I mentioned them before when I started a course of at-home Salicylic Acid peels which I then couldn’t review as I had to stop them prematurely to start the Jan Marini review.

The shop I’m talking about is called Forever Young, and the reason I’m such a fan of theirs is because they invest a huge amount of time and energy in researching the ingredients that become popular in expensive creams, and then find a way to create inexpensive versions of these products which will include whatever “buzzword” ingredient is popular at the time.  Therefore, you can purchase no-nonsense and fuss-free products that will contain these ingredients to rival those that cost obscene amounts from more commercial brands.

I’ve purchased all sorts from them over the years, but I’ve reminded myself of how great they are today due to the fact that I’ll be purchasing a set of Glycolic peels to try and speed up my acne-scar healing.  Having had peels from a lot of high-end suppliers, I can vouch for the fact that the Forever Young peels are just as effective.  The best part is that you can buy a decent peel kit for less than £20 which wouldn’t even buy you one treatment in most salons.

They stock the most popular peel variants – Salicylic, Glycolic and Lactic – in all sorts of strengths, so if you’re keen to try out peels but don’t want to spend a fortune at salons then they’re definitely worth checking out.  You can find their store here.

    This is really interesting.. I’d never think to go on Ebay for a peel! Thanks for opening my eyes!

      Thanks Jane! They are a really, really good shop who I’ve used on and off for years. The creator is incredibly knowledgeable (when you can persuade her to answer your e-mails) so there are amazing deals to be had that work out soooo much cheaper than high-street prices xx

    Hi Sacha

      They are still active, but they changed their name to SR-Skincare.

    Have you tried the cleanser or any of their acne serums? How would you rate these?

    I think that some of the products from SR-Skincare are superb and uniquely so, but watch out, they keep reformulating them! A few of the newer formulae are actually pretty bad – irritating and more chemical. No idea why they changed from such great natural formulae. Most are still good though.

    Also they are not exactly customer-servicy. It’s quite weird actually. You’ll be lucky to receive a reply to an enquiry and don’t ever expect any empathy, thanks, apologies or concessions! They often ignore customers and even leverage opportunities to charge extra!

    I find that behaviour really off-putting 😐 It’s a shame because they have a lot going for them product-wise. Add proper customer care and they could really rock it.

      Thanks for the update Lola. I do think they’ve been taken over by another company (although that’s purely speculative) and it’s disappointing to read that they’re not doing a great job. It’s a real shame as they used to be a fantastic company that did truly amazing products! xx

        Hi Sascha

        I’m Kelli from SR-Skincare (or Forever Young as we used to be known as). I’ve recently been taking over the customer service and marketing for the company. We’ve not been taken over by another company, but we did recently move premises and had a name change. We can now be found on our websites http://www.SR-Skincare.co.uk and http://www.cutting-edge-skincare.com. We no longer sell on Ebay but we do have distributors who buy our products in bulk and sell them in their own Ebay stores. Other than manufacturing the products we have no affiliation with these companies.

      Hi Lola

      I’m sorry to hear you had a bad experience with customer service from us. We are a very small, local run business with small staffing levels and we concentrated more on ensuring products were packaged and sent out as soon as possible. We have now extended our staff base and I myself now deal with customer service enquiries by email which are always answered promptly every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If you ever do need any help, assistance or even just skincare advice then I’ll always be happy to help and you can contact me on kelli@forever-young-uk.com
