First up is Abi Cleeve’s SKINSENSE GLYCOLIC PEEL & REVEAL PADS (30 pcs/RRP £34.00). Abi is very much a real woman who created this range when she couldn’t find products that worked for her. These pads are for once-a-day use and I would use in the evening after cleansing, so that your expensive serums and moisturisers have fresh skin to work on. These are NOT toner pads, we don’t use toner anymore, but these really mild AHA acid pads to gently exfoliate the top layer of your skin, which is why they are called “Peel & Reveal”. AHA acid is superb for us in this very, very mild form as it just helps cell turnover and takes off the top layer of dead cells, revealing sparkly new, glowing skin beneath. If you are new to acids on your skin then definitely use just once a day in the evening and monitor your skin. Any reaction, leave it out of your routine for a few days.
SKINSENSE DOUBLE STRENGTH RETINOL NIGHT SERUM 30ml / RRP £46.00
Abi's Double Strength Retinol Night Serum is perfect for you and me. This is basically Vitamin A, which is scientifically proven to reverse the signs of ageing in skin as well as prevent them from starting in the first place, which is why this is right up there in our high performance skincare routine. Vitamin A is best used at night, the reason being is that it is going to help encourage new skin cell production. These new cells are going to be thinner and so potentially open to sun damage which is why Vitamin A is used (almost universally) at night.
The benefits (and so why we are doing this) include:
Now, if you're new to retinol it can cause skin to be flaky so mix it in with your moisturiser to lower the strength and then build up. In short, LOOK at your skin, which is what we are all about now.
