Since I am only really starting to embrace the Cosmeceutical side of life since being introduced to peels from Dermaceutic, I was interested in their line of products for at home use. I was given two 3ml sized testers of the Turn Over Stimulating Night Cream which is said to promote skin turnover and reduce the appearance of signs of aging. Turn over is recommended to treat the loss of skin tone, wrinkles and fine lines.
Upon the application of the product at night after cleansing and toning I could certainly feel the active ingredients working on my skin. The formula is light and doesn’t leave a hint of greasy feeling on your skin, while it has a slight tingle feel to it but nothing to worry about as this product contains a formula of concentrated glycolic acid (15%) which removes dead cells that build up on the skin’s surface and stimulates cellular renewal for the quest for forever young and beautiful skin. Due to the acidic content the product almost smells like chemicals but it is not a strong smell and disappears quickly.
Because I am so far from being an expert on all things cosmeceutical, here is the explanation from Dermaceutic on what the 15% Glycoluc Acid Solution will do for your skin.
“Reduces corneocyte cohesion of the keratin layer of the skin, enabling homogeneous exfoliation of upper layers. By removing dead cells from the skins surface, the signs of aging are less visible, the skin appears smoother and complexion is more homogeneous.”
Upon waking up in the morning after day 2 of using this my skin felt firmer, brighter and ready to take on the day face forward! The best way I can understand this product is that it essentially makes you shed all the unwanted dead skin cells over night, like a mini-overnight peel, so that you can face the following day with poise and finesse all while having incredible skin with a youthful glow.
The recommended retail price for a full size product is R500 for 50ml and is available at selected spas and salons nationwide. For more information on the at home skincare available from Dermaceutic, please contact Conquest.
