There are a few skincare ingredients that I always gravitate towards when deciding on skincare to try; usually acids, probiotics and antioxidants, but the one biggy that will always turn my head is Hyaluronic Acid. People hear the word “acid” and get a little nervous, but Hyaluronic Acid is not the type that exfoliates your skin or gives it a peel, it’s instead a type that aids your skin in retaining water, making it the most perfect ingredient for anyone with dry and/or dehydrated skin issues.
I love Superfacialist and as a brand I think they do some of the most fantastic high-street skincare available. Their spot-fighting Salicylic Acid range is one of the best you can get your hands on for the price point and their hydrating rose range is gorgeously gentle on skin that’s dry and sensitive. The Superfacialist Hyaluronic Acid Firming Range is one of the newest ranges for the brand, with the focus being firming, restoring youthfulness and providing hydration.
There are six products in the Superfacialist Hyaluronic Acid Firming Range: Daily Brightening Cleanser, Intense Facial Serum, Super Lift Day Cream, Super Lift Night Cream, Lift & Smooth Eye Cream and finally Neck & Chest Smoothing Cream. I tried the first four products (cleanser, serum, day and night cream) and to be honest, I wasn’t especially wowed, but I think this is because this is a range clearly designed for more mature skin types that would benefit from help with firming and toning their skin; I zoned in on the Hyaluronic Acid element because it’s an ingredient I really like, but it plays a relatively small part in this range which is all about the long-term effects, of which aren’t going to show on my (relatively!) young skin. Consequently, it’s tricky for me to recommend this line as I didn’t find it especially hydrating, but the effects might be cumulative and are likely to be a lot more apparent on skin that’s older than mine. The price point starts at £8.99 for the cleanser (I should mention that this is a lovely product that provides a very gentle, softening cleanse) and goes up to £16.99 for the day and night cream and £19.99 for the neck and chest cream, all of which can be found here – link.
