One of my must have skincare products comes from a brand that I have come to trust and very much love.
It is a luxury, expensive brand that creates products that really work and I can honestly say are worth every single penny.
Zelens Power A High Potency Vitamin A Treatment Drops are my skins saviour.
Used nightly as an all-over treatment or to target specific areas, this oil contains a powerful combination of pure, encapsulated retinol and two retinoids to promote skin renewal, improve skin tone and texture and does so with minimal or no irritation so often associated with the use of retinoids.
This wonder oil can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots as well as help to clear blemishes and minimise the look of enlarged pores. It really is a multi functional, miracle little product.
You’ve only got to the look at the impressive list of ingredients to realise that it is jam packed full of a huge range of skin loving, nourishing and beautifying ingredients.
Retinol: Zelens uses encapsulated, time-released retinol which stimulates cellular turnover minimal or no irritation. Visibly retexturize skin surface, restores skin thickness and help reverse signs of aging.
Retinoids: Zelens uses two cosmetic grades retinoids: Hydroxypinacolone retinoate and Retinyl palmitate. Hydroxypinacolone retinoate is an ester of all-trans retinoic acid. This retinoid demonstrates activities of pure retinol without irritation. Retinyl palmitate is an ester of retinol and palmitic acid. This retinoid facilitates cell communication and enhances skin renewal process.
Phospholipids: Major building components in the structure of any cellular membrane essential for all vital physiological processes. These natural skin-identical ingredients demonstrate moisturising, restructuring and protective properties.
Sterol complex: A blend of vegetable-derived esters structurally similar to skin lipids. Demonstrates moisturising, conditioning and repairing properties. Reinforces skin barrier function.
Soybean sterols: Phytosterols derived from soybeans are lipid molecules with strong biomimetic and soothing properties. Structurally similar to skin natural lipids, these sterols moisturise skin, reduce water loss and strengthen natural barrier function.
Glycolipids: Lipid molecules analogous to the intercellular lipids of stratum corneum (SC) demonstrate structuring, repairing and protective properties. Strengthen the barrier function and hydro-retaining capacity of skin.
Omega-3 and Omega-6: Essential fatty acids derived from safflower oil. Help restore and maintain lipid barrier function and balance the moisture of the skin. Omega acids act as skin protectors and revitalisers.
Proprietary botanical blend: This unique botanical blend contains 6 fruit and vegetable extracts (pumpkin, carrot, broccoli, sweet potato, tomato and spinach) rich in Vitamin A (carotenoids).
Vitamin E: An antioxidant with a key role in the protection of cellular membranes from free radicals. It is the major antioxidant in the human epidermis with strong protective - effects against UV-induced skin damage.
Geranium oil: An essential oil extracted from the plant Rose geranium. This oil possesses antioxidant and antiseptic properties. It helps to balance the secretion of sebum and clear oily skins. Traditionally it has been used for years to help healing of wounds, burns and ulcers.
The oil itself is light in texture and possesses a fresh, pleasant and relaxing aroma.
Designed for use on cleansed skin prior to a serum or moisturiser, I use around 3-4 drops and gently massage it all over my face, concentrating on particularly troublesome areas.
The skin around my nose is often dry and flaky and my chin is frequently oily and regularly features hormonal spots, yet this concentrated oil somehow manages to soothe and rectify both areas.
Seriously! It soothes and nourishes my dry skin patches and yet also helps to clear my problem skin.
When my skin is bad I can notice a huge difference come the morning after just one application of this oil. My skintone is more even, redness has been reduced and my skin actually feels healthier.
I am completely in love with this product and love that it helps with two of my biggest skin concerns; ageing and acne and its gentle enough for even my sensitive skin.
