It’s Monday and I’m feeling a little sluggish after the wonderful weekend I had with friends. I guess that probably means it’s the best time to pick out some of the many beauty products I have around to share with you which ones I’ve tried and liked. Today, I’m sharing about Skincode, a renowned Swiss-based beauty brand that is available in Singapore.
Swiss-made skincare (or any products for that matter) has always been known to have excellent quality and in-depth research. Founded in 1998, Skincode’s comprehensive range of products was developed through a series of rigorous dermaceutical research and technological breakthroughs. Built on the principle that the skin is a living organ and its genetic “code” must be respected, the collection provides consumers with high-performance, innovative skincare products reflecting the precision, purity and quality that one has come to expect from Switzerland.
I got to know about Skincode through a bloggers beauty event earlier this year but as with all my beauty products, I usually take awhile before finding the time to come round to it and giving the products proper testing.
Skincode Essentials is an advanced dermaceutical skincare line formulated to satisfy the daily skincare needs of both men and women. It contains botanical plant extracts and biotech ingredients and is also 100% preservative free, fragrance free, colour free and animal derivative free. Hence, it is formulated for even the most sensitive skin. In addition to this, the Skincode Essentials line contains a plant-derived active ingredient complex for protecting the skin from damage by environmental pollutants.
As we know, sun damage is probably the biggest cause of skin ageing and the plant-derived ingredients complex found in many of Skincode Essentials products helps to: Actively protect the skin from UV-radiation, pollutants and free radicals, activate and improve the skin’s own defence and repair mechanism, preserve the health and beauty of the skin and maintain intensive and long-lasting moisture.
If you notice carefully to all of Skincode Essentials products, you’ll see a common ingredient. Skincode’s medical-grade CM-Glucan is the key ingredient of the Skincode Essentials line. Discovered in 1941, CM-Glucan is a bioactive, water-soluble beta-glucan
polysaccharide from baker’s yeast. It was originally used as a pharmaceutical healing cream. Being known for its multiple benefits, CM-Glucan was subsequently used in the medical world in topical applications and oral prescription. Skincode uses a water soluble formulation to maximise skin absorption. Benefits of using CM-Glucan includes protecting sensitive skin , soothing stressed skin, and increasing the repair efficacy.
Here are some products that I liked from Skincode.
Revitalizing Eye Contour Cream 15ml
A multi-active cream to soothe, lighten dark circles and reduce the puffiness around the delicate eye area. Your skin feels firmer and refreshed, the fine lines are softened, and the “shadows” are nowhere in sight.
This refreshing essence decreases the production of melanin, making the skin appear even-toned, lighter and brighter. Additionally, the product soothes and moisturises the skin while giving it a natural matte finish.
Cellular Perfect Skin Capsules* 15.3ml (45pcs)
This luxurious, silky serum is a strong anti-oxidant. It protects the skin against free radicals and signs of premature skin ageing. Plant extracts stimulate, regenerate and soothe the skin while activating the cell metabolism and improving blood circulation. This powerful serum immediately changes the complexion of the skin making it feel exceptionally soft while adding beautiful long-lasting radiance.
Extra Gentle Skin Refiner 75ml
This extra gentle exfoliating mask works to immediately reveal a softer, smoother, and more even complexion. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and Vitamin A + E gently remove dead skin cells, prevents impurities and attenuate lines and wrinkles. Instantly, this mask uncovers a fresher, more radiant and younger looking skin.
