This anti-oxidant and anti-microbial cream covers all bases to leave your skin clean and protected.

  1. Eight Hour Skin Protectant Cream

After examining the science behind Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant, we can see how it’s stood the test of time. The original promise was to calm, protect and hydrate skin:

  • Calm: salicylic acid is thought to have anti-inflammatory to soothe redness and irritation
  • Protect: antioxidant vitamin E protects against premature ageing; petrolatum and vitamin E both improve the barrier function of the skin. Salicylic acid also protects against blemishes and can help lighten uneven skin tone,
  • Hydrate: petrolatum tackles transepidermal water loss by acting as an occlusive moisturiser and improving the skin’s barrier.

  1. Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Age Defying Day Moisturiser

Olay claim they can reduce 7 forms of ageing in one age-defying day moisturiser. Starting with minimising lines and wrinkles, nourishing moisturisation and tone enhancement moving onto gentle exfoliation, pore refinement and antioxidants then finishing off with subtle firming. We told you it was jam-packed, and for only £15, it gets a 10/10 from the Beauty Geeks!

  1. Bioderma Micellar Water

Micelles, in basic terms are clusters of molecules, which form a spherical shape in water. When applied to the skin these micro-droplets will encapsulate dirt or makeup on the skins surface. This combination is designed to lift up the dirt from your skin while maintaining the skins physiological balance. The idea is the cleansing water removes the dirt from your skin but leaves your skin hydrated. Although Bioderma isn’t a replacement of a good old cleanser, it’s perfect for on the go and the gym.

  1. La Roche Effaclar Duo [+] Anti Blemish Cream

We are very impressed with the ingredients that La Roche Posay has managed to pack into this tube, tackling such a wide range of beauty blunders with savvy science. There seems to be a good amount of research to support these ingredients for the product’s anti-acne claims. With a good response from customer reviews as well, we’re giving La Roche Posay’s Effaclar Duo[+] anti-blemish cream a big thumbs from us!

Apply it to your face for toning, exfoliating and moisturising in just one application before bed to wake up to ready-for-the-world skin. Glycolic acid is a common exfoliant found in skin care products and can remove dead skin cells to give a brighter, healthier complexion. Liquorice root boasts both anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties as well as its pigment-lightening effect. You never know, this might be the answer to the minimal effort masterpiece you’ve been longing for.

  1. Ren’s Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask 

It’s not that often we find products with such wide-reaching claims that contain the ingredients to fulfil them! According to Ren 100% of women in their own study reported a radiance and firming effect on the skin, with 96% considering their skin smoother and firmer and 77% saying they saw a visible reduction in wrinkles after a single use.

We were pretty impressed with Ren’s exfoliating acid combo in their Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask – we’d certainly be happy to invest in this one!
