Being ridiculously good looking comes with a great deal of responsibility, a face that literally brightens up the day of others must be carefully maintained. While keeping fit and eating well is good for the body, reading and not watching reality tv is good for the mind its imperative to look after your skin too, more people see your mug than your six pack daily so why not pay it more attention. I have a daily cleansing routine and a number of products which over time and through consultation with experts I have found suit my skin type (which is awesome, in case you were wondering). As with fashion I am always researching and experimenting so when Elaine and the lovely people at NeoStrata invited me along to their recent event in the House Hotel it was an opportunity to network and learn a bit more about maintaining the money maker. It was a great event with plenty of wine and delicious bites and a few of my Into The West Bloggers Network #ITWBN friends.

The first product I tried out is the Ultra Brightening Cleanser from the Enlighten range, it’s a facial cleanser to be used twice a day made with Alpine plant extracts. This cleanser improves skin tone and removes excess oil. It’s what you want in a cleanser, gentle on the skin and leaves you feeling fresh afterwards.

The next product I tried and the one that intrigued me most was the Glycolic Peel. Friends in the know rave about this and I was delighted to have the chance to check it out. In one sense it like playing a video game on Easy mode as men generally improve with age, having access to top class anti-ageing treatment is almost unfair but as I say it’s important to look after your skin regardless.

According to the back of the box, “NeoStrata Citirate Home Treatment System exfoliates the dead and dull surface layers of your skin to revitalise your skins healthy appearance. High strength Alpha Hydroxy Acids then stimulate the process of cell renewal to reveal new, fresh skin on the surface.” And who am I to argue.

The Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) are crucial here as they are one of the few scientifically proven anti aging ingredients.

The instructions are very easy to follow given the way the kit is laid out. For the first application you are recommended to leave the solution on for 15-30min before rinsing off with the cleanser provided and applying the sachet of Bionic Face Cream.

Lads the feeling after this is class. My skin was as smooth as my chat up lines and as radiant as my personality, I was actually glowing. It’s no wonder women are always off getting treatments like this.
