HealGel Face is the anti-ageing moisturiser. The formulas for the HealGel range has been developed by plastic surgeons. HealGel face has been lauded by many , both in and outside the beauty industry. The five ml sample I had was plenty for a weeks use, and I chose to use it as a day and night cream without a serum underneath it to see if it lived up to the hype.
The texture is really light. Perfect now that we have moved into slightly warmer weather. I made the mistake of using too much the first few times I applied it. You really don’t need to use a lot and even if you do use too much, it does not roll on the skin, it just leaves you a bit greasy. It absorbs really easily and I found that it was a great base for make up (liquid and stick). I found that it definitely had a smoothing and hydrating effect on my skin. Over the course of the seven days my skin did not scream for a serum. The hyaluronic acid/peptide complex in this cream is impressive. That said, I went back to Hydraluron at the end of the week’s trial. I can’t confirm that it had a firming effect on my skin, but only because after a week it is impossible to tell.
The lavender fragrance is lovely, and for such product with a pretty extensive ingredients list, quite a simple fragrance that you would associate more with a brand which identifies as organic or natural. It was not at all overpowering. I am very impressed with HealGel Face.
