FACE VALUE

In my earlier 20’s I didn’t care much for skincare products as I had little patience for it. ‘My skin is fine, a quick facial wipe/moisturiser and I’m done’. Sadly as time goes on, my skin calls for a little more extra care. The daily polluted air that comes with living in London, work related stress and gradual ‘aging’ signs have forced me to discover skin care products to maintain youthful clean skin. My beauty search has also been energised when I met my housemate; possibly one of the most beautiful women I have ever met (let me e-introduce you to Nischa). I needed to step up my game and take better care of my skin. After all this the first thing you see in the mirror everyday and a feature most people see first.

After a few disappointing skincare trials and spending a small fortune; I was kindly introduced to 111Skin by Juliette.

I learned that 111 Skin is a beauty skincare brand which sought collaboration of space scientists responsible for the wellbeing of astronauts. Together they created the patented NAC Y² formula which is proven to delay ageing. The formula stimulates the body’s natural repair system to work on the lines and wrinkles that are already present.

I was intrigued; and super excited to trial a few products from 111Skin’s range. My problem areas I wanted to target; fine lines around my eyes and my t-zone which can get oily in hotter temperatures. I thought it would be the opportune time to trial these products in London and whilst travelling to hotter climates when vacating to Thailand and Hong Kong this summer.

Lift Off Purifying Cleanser NAC Y2

I replaced my current cleanser with the Lift Off Purifying Cleanser which includes hydrating ingredients that gently cleanses, fights free radicals and removes dead skin cells which clog pores.

As recommended I use this twice daily, first thing in the morning and when I’m removing my makeup in the evening (after exfoliating). This is applied on damp skin and massaged into my skin in circular motions before rinsing with clean water. After use, my skin feels so clean. I have large pores around my t-zone and never have I felt such deep cleansing as this.

Other benefits include:

  • Gently cleanses and purifies the skin
  • Restores skin’s pH levels and eliminates impurities and build-up
  • Improves circulation in the skin for a radiant and healthy glow
  • Protects against free radical damage
  • Paraben, paraffin, and silicone free

Ground Control Anti Blemish Tonic NAC Y2

I replaced my usual toner with the Ground Control Anti Blemish Tonic which states that it neutralises stressed and fatigued skin while minimising excess oils. This soothing formula also reduces inflammation and stimulates skin renewal.  The Tonic fights Acne and is designed to eliminate breakouts before they surface.

I suffer from an oily t-zone so Juliette recommended that I use this tonic. The tonic is applied on a cotton pad and again in circular motions all over my face. The after feeling is simply FRESH AND CLEAN. Admittedly, after the initial couple of days, I did break out in little pimples around the t-zone but these soon disappeared and my skin is now flawless; even after extremely hot days where my skin felt hot and polluted after days in hot Asian cities. I applied this onto my skin everyday and was still free from blemishes. Perfect!

Other benefits include:

  • Cleansing tonic, suitable for acne prone skin
  • Benzyl Alcohol has a powerful antibacterial effect, which reduces inflammatory processes and stimulates skin renewal
  • Saw Palmetto helps to reduce the production of sebum and excess oils
  • Paraben, paraffin, and silicone free

Personal 111Skin Review

After trialling these products for one month, I would happily recommend these beauties to you. I was impressed with the appearance of my skin, looking more youthful, bright and blemish free. I felt that these products targeted my problem areas which reduced the fine lines under my eyes (due to the hydration elements) and deep cleansed my oily t-zone. My recommendation would be to purchase these products together as they compliment each other perfectly and both achieved my positive skin results. With that; I feel confident in my skin and that’s how every woman should feel.
