With an incredibly strong reputation preceding it, I was excited to get my hands on HealGel Face and put it to the test. Created and perfected by a group of plastic surgeons and skin specialists, this ‘miracle cream’ is designed to smooth, firm and replenish skin to leave it feeling and looking visibly plumper, healthier and more rejuvenated. It also aims to kick any scarring or damage into touch and reduce puffiness around the eyes. It’s a very busy product! I was initially sceptical; despite reading a number of good reviews, it just seemed like it was just too good to be true. HealGel Face aims to generally improve the all round ‘performance’ of your skin: collagen boosting, elasticity restoring, rehydrating and tightening in one product? Sounds like a lot for one little cream, but HealGel is really that excellent.
Filled with a whole heap of ingredients your beauty routine will love, including omega oils (which help to regulate oil production) a hyaluronic acid complex (which is key for anti-ageing) and with a great deal of science behind it, this product really lives up to the hype. Though the general consensus is that it takes a good three months of regular use for the full effects to show, I found that my skin definitely benefited from a change after using it for just a short period of time. Personally I can’t get away with using this product every day (as it’s a bit too much on my delicate skin,) but applying it to clean skin a few times a week has been enough for me to feel a difference. I’m not sure it’s showing yet so I won’t treat you to any awkward before and after pictures, but the most important thing for me is that I can feel a difference.
I was using HealGel Face, but I was interested to see how it worked elsewhere too. On my recent holiday I used it to treat everything from itchy bites, to slightly sore sunburn and as a base to keep me fresh-faced when my usual beauty regime was being disturbed by sun, sea, sand and swimming pools. I’ve also been using it on scar tissue from recent surgery and I definitely feel like it’s reduced the red, angry scar I was left with. It’s not a cheap product (retailing at around £48.00 for 50ml,) but you only need to use a tiny smidgeon as a little goes a very long way. It’s a bit of an investment, but one I certainly feel is worthwhile.
HealGel Face is available online and from Space NK priced £48.00
