Do you have a skincare routine?

Twice daily cleansing, toning and moisturising with weekly exfoliating and a masque has been my go to regimen for years.  But lately, I’ve decided I need to step it up.  More treatments, more serums and more active ingredients!

I’m ageing – and I’m cool with that.  I’m proud of being in my 40s.  I’m a little bit fat – and I’m cool with that too.  Trust me, after years of chronic illness, being a size 14 is the least of my worries.  I’m more concerned about the lines that make me look grumpy when I’m not!

Mid way through my Skin Doctors trial with just BB Cream applied

I had a matching set of luggage under my eyes, bunny lines between my eyes and eye fans.  My skin was not bouncing back the way it used to.  Even after a good night’s sleep, I often look like I was up all night.  It’s not all bad – I cherish my laugh lines because I have earned those from years of being a happy person.

The sort of skincare I used in my 30s was no longer cutting it.  Anything saying “fine lines” is no longer for me.  I need skincare that has words like “advanced”, “super” and “wrinkle reduction” in the name.

When I was contacted by Skin Doctors Cosmeceuticals, asking me if I was interested in working together, I leapt at the opportunity.

Skin Doctors sent me a range of products specifically tailored to my skin’s needs.  I identified these as:

  • loss of elasticity
  • wrinkles
  • pigmentation

The products I received for trial and review purposes:

  • SD White & Bright RRP $49.95 – for pigmentation and discolouration
  • Superfacelift RRP $59.95 – for wrinkles and loss of elasticity
  • Supermoist RRP $44.95 – for total hydration and a younger complexion
  • Airbrush Face $RRP $39.95 – for wrinkles and expression lines

I switched up my skincare trial by using the SD White & Bright one day and the Super Facelift the next day, morning and night, so I could really experience the full effects of each product.

I’m going to break it down for you.  Buckle up because we have a lot to talk about!

Skin Doctors SD White & Bright

what Skin Doctors say

SD White & Bright is a breakthrough skin lightening and brightening complex that contains clinically proven and effective ingredients to help target and prevent skin discolouration to help you achieve a clear, bright porcelain complexion.

Problem: Sun exposure and skin ageing can cause an uneven production of melanin in the skin that can result in the appearance of freckles, sunspots, age spots, pigmentation or overall darker skin tone.

Solution: SD White & BrightTM is a breakthrough skin cream containing an optimum level of the benchmark ingredient in skin whitening and pigmentation correction, β WhiteTM. β WhiteTM is shown to have a dramatic effect on melanin synthesis – the action by which skin pigmentation occurs, and is proven to significantly improve the appearance of darker skin pigmentation.

I started getting skin pigmentation in my 20s from the Pill, and I had serious skin pigmentation when I was pregnant.  I’ve tried microdermabrasion – it left me smooth but didn’t help a lot.  I’ve slathered myself in serious SPF products year round – which keeps it from getting worse but that’s it.  I’ve tried various products – most of which just irritated my skin.

Luckily my skin pigmentation is largely over the tops of my cheekbones, so I can disguise it with blush and highlighter.  Recently, I have noticed little spots of it appearing.  Like on my nose where my glasses remove my sunblock.  A dark spot on my cheek.  Even on my hands – now that is old lady territory!

I’m going to have to hand in my beauty blogger hat because I accidentally deleted my before photos.  You’ll have to take my word for it but this stuff works! SD White & Bright has a magic ingredient that they call β WhiteTM and I am about to set up an altar to it.

My pigmentation is significantly improved.  The red patches on my nose have faded and I feel more confident in my natural skin. Yes, I would repurchase this product.

Skin Doctors Supermoist

what Skin Doctors say

Imagine … a moisturiser that can make you look years younger! Enjoy 24 hour total hydration and environmental protection, with antioxidants, sunscreen and skin illuminators in one super advanced facial moisturiser.

Problem: Dry skin can crack and flake making it vulnerable to environmental damage and more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. It can also lose that plump, dewy, youthful look.

Solution: The advanced moisturisers in SupermoistTM not only give you an instant moisture injection but they will actually form an invisible hydrating barrier that keeps moisture within the skin for up to 24 hours a day. This incredible moisture barrier together with antioxidant (free radical scavengers) and a sunscreen will also keep potential environmental damage away.

  • Resurrection Plant – found in the deserts of South Africa, this plant uses a miraculous survival system which allows it to avoid death in environments where prolonged periods of drought are followed by sudden and intense rain. During the drought periods, this plant goes into a state of anabiosis (reduced metabolism or hibernation), only to be “resurrected” when provided with moisture. That is, during the drought the plant appears dry and dead and then is quickly re-hydrated and normal cellular functions are restored with the rain. This plant is extremely rich in antioxidants and is especially helpful in rectifying oxidative changes caused by UV.
  • Tamarind- this spice, native to tropical Africa contains oligosaccharides which are potent immune stimulators and effective moisturisers. This formula has added Vitamin E, a naturally derived super anti-oxidant which also helps to correct damage to the skin caused by UV.

Oh Em Gee! I am in love with this face cream.  This pretty pink cream is my holy grail face cream.

After applying at night, my skin was still plump and moisturised in the morning.  I usually have to apply facial oil to get this type of effect.

When applying during the day, my skin looked dewy and my makeup applied more smoothly and looked better.  The product is packed with antioxidants and other goodies, like sunscreen and illuminators.

I will never not have this product in my bathroom makeup cupboard – it is that good!  Repurchase? I already have!

Skin Doctors Superfacelift

what Skin Doctors say

SuperfaceliftTM is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles by 86% and crow’s feet by 63% in just 8 weeks! Its cosmeceutical strength formula helps smooth wrinkles and tightens and firms a sagging complexion by supporting the health of your skin’s structure. Look dramatically younger with long term results.

  • ProDEJine – has been shown to reinforce the dermo-epidermal junction and stimulate dermis protein synthesis. It has been clinically shown to decrease wrinkles on the forehead by 86% and wrinkles on the crow’s feet by 63% in 8 weeks. Further consumer clinical testing revealed a significant improvement in cutaneous tonicity, wrinkles and skin loosening when compared with placebo.
  • Tagravit R – encapsulated Retinol (Vitamin A), has anti-ageing activity (wrinkles, lines and loss of elasticity), is highly effective for UV damaged skin and assists in improving the cell renewal process.
  • Vitamin E – naturally derived super antioxidant, which assists in rectifying oxidative changes caused by UV.
  • Lactic Acid (AHA) – naturally occurring fruit acid, that has been shown to increase the water-holding ability of the corneum layer of the skin, allowing for an improvement in fine lines.

what Kimba Likes says

I have to admit that I was a little bit sceptical about this product, but after four weeks, I’m ready to change my tune.  I’ve noticed a firming along my jawline, a reduction in forehead wrinkle appearance and even my crow’s feet (which I like to call eye fans) look better.

Colour me impressed.  I will most likely repurchase this product.

Perfect for use on mouth lines, frown lines and nasolabial folds. Airbrush’s unique brush applicator allows for targeted application into wrinkles.

what Kimba Likes says

I was really interested in trying this product because I thought it would be my favourite.  I love brushes to apply makeup and skincare, so an inbuilt brush applicator was a great idea.

Unfortunately, I found it a little bit tricky to use.  The brush was quite small and stiff.  I found it easier to apply the product to my fingertips and apply directly to my skin.  I used it specifically on my bunny lines and around my mouth.

I found it was a good product to apply during the day, and it proved to be an effective product.  I just wasn’t keen on the packaging.  I’m not sure that I would repurchase this product.

Skin Doctors Cosmeceuticals Beauty Review

I’m so glad that I was offered the opportunity to review these products because I will definitely be repurchasing.  I’m super impressed with the quality of the products, especially at the price of $60 and under.
