Skin Doctors to the Rescue

I don't tend to post about products that I don't get along with on my blog, however I do think these products from Skin Doctors work but that they just didn't get along with me. Skin Doctors aims to create products that offer topical alternatives to surgery and contain only ingredients that have been proven to work in strict scientific conditions or through hundreds of years of traditional use. The lovely team from Skin Doctors sent me three products to try and they certainly provided a different and interesting skin care experience, so I wanted to share my thoughts.

Instant Facelift

As the name would suggest, this product aims to give you an instant facelift. When applying this product you need to keep your face as still as possible until the product dries and trust me, you've never realised how long a product can truely take to dry when you're not allowed to move your face. The Instant Facelift contains Liftensyl LS which gives the product its immediate tightening properties and helps skin to become smoother, softer and more radiant, while the Easyliance helps to forms a matrix over the surface of the skin which helps to smoothen and tighten for a visible lifting effect. Maybe I didn't apply enough or just don't have enough fine lines at the moment to be pulled back, but I'm not sure I saw a huge difference. I also don't particularly enjoy the tighten feel that lasted on my skin and I found my makeup didn't apply over the product particularly well.

Instant Eyelift
This product aims to give your eyes a lift within five minutes of applying, helping to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. While I certainly found this worked and could feel it pulling the skin tighter, I also found it left the area where I had applied it with a dry film of product on my skin. This made applying makeup basically a no go in this area and I just didn't like the feel of it on my skin. So while this does work I didn't like the feeling it left on my skin and so probably wouldn't use it again.

Instant Pixel Perfect
The Pixel Perfect aims to act like an intense primer, that not only fills in your pores and lines to give you a smooth base to work on but also acts to help rejuvenate your skin to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles even without makeup on. You probably know by now I have completely jumped off the primer bandwagon and never really use it anymore - I just didn't feel like primer was really doing anything for my skin and I haven't noticed anything negative since I choose to stop using it. Applying this to my face I certainly could feel the areas where I applied it felt much smoother, a bit like how Benefit's Porefessional makes your skin feel after application. While I didn't mind it, as I'm someone who isn't inclined to use a primer I didn't find myself reaching for this much.
