I was recently treated to a 111 Skin facial for my birthday, which left my skin super plump & glowing, & I couldn’t wait to try some of the range, ahead of filming.
The launch of 111 Skin, a luxury, cosmeceutical range pioneered by Harley St cosmetic surgeon Dr Yannis Alexandrides, promises to excite even the most ‘seen it all’ beauty addicts.
With over 20 years of reconstructive & rejuvenative experience, Dr Yannis is a seminal figure & one of the first surgeons to advocate non-surgical skincare.
The high-end range of treatment masks, serums, boosters, & moisturisers combine cutting-edge, uber high tech ingredients, including the patented NAC Y2; an amalgam of peptides & antioxidants to combat and reverse ageing, accelerating skin renewal & its reparative capacity.
One of the stand out products I tried, & which has become something of a cult status product, is the ‘Y Theorum Repair Serum. The serum boosts collagen production, cellular renewal, & works of strengthening the elastic fibres of the skin, coating it in amino & aminocaproic acids to soothe, protect and heal.
I’ve been using the Y serum for over a month & have to say that it lives up to its status. The texture is like a silky film which glides onto the skin & is rapidly absorbed. It’s got a luxurious feel & the results are noticeable from the first few applications. Even when I’m tired and lacking sleep, it peps my skin, diminishes redness & generally makes me look like I’ve had a mini-break. So potent is the patented formula, it can even be used effectively on postoperative or laser scarring.
The second must-have in this range is the Rose Gold Brightening Mask. It’s a luxurious hydrogel mask infused with 24K Gold & Damask Rose Extract, designed to lift, replenish & hydrate. I used it before an important event & immediately saw that my skin was not only brightened & tightened, but the lack of sleep I’d had was magically erased. It’s a real antidote to city skin & made my skin dewy and luminous.
Not only are the products beautifully designed, but they also live up to their promises, & most importantly are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. I hate wearing lots of make-up, & with these products, it was a lot easier to go bare-faced!
A fantastic, luxury range that over delivers. I love it x
