Want Great Looking Skin ?

The range of skincare products on the market is wide and varied as are product prices, but the aim of all is ultimately the same; to make the skin appear more youthful.  Who doesn’t dream of having younger looking skin?

Some products work and some don’t and I have in the past been disappointed with a handful of products that I have bought especially when I have spent a pretty penny  only to find they don’t do anything even when the sales person has sworn blind they do.  I remember buying a serum a few years back for over £100 and it did nothing at all, not a sausage.  Of course not impressed by the misinformation or the fact I could have bought some boots with that I never featured them on my blog – why would I!

One company that has never steered me wrong is Skin Doctors.  Recently I discovered they had two NEW products available and was really excited when they asked me to review these for them.

I was sent a pack of both the Skin Doctors Day Ampoules and Night Ampoules to experiment with.  Each jar cost £39.99 and contains 50 measured doses.  A quick google search lead me to discover I could get the pair for £45 which is a great saving!

Skin Doctors Day and Night Ampoules are capsules that are easy to open and use.  You simply twist off the top, apply the serum to the skin then apply your moisturiser and wait for your skin to start improving and this really doesn’t take long at all.  The great thing is they don’t add much time to your pre-existing daily routine and the serum is really fast acting too.  You will also be pleased to hear they are paraben free.

I gave the ampoules a go and on initial use I noticed that they were quickly absorbed into my skin and the skin felt increasingly silky smooth on each application.  The product was absorbed easily into the skin with no oily residue and on each day I used these my skin felt much softer than it did prior to the initial application.  Within 5 days my skin looked brighter and this was even more obvious by day 7.  My skin continued to improve and I had developed a gorgeous healthy, plump, glowing skin in record speed.  I have to be honest I am overly observant when it comes to these sorts of things but I was amazed at the results of the contents of these teeny tiny ampoules.  The product has been well thought out.  The product is easy to use and each ampoule contains a fresh daily dose as it is airtight and isn’t transparent thus preventing exposure to air and light which would otherwise denature the contents and affect their efficacy.

A quick tip: if you are using these.  Make sure you also squeeze the small top of ampoules so you don’t miss any of the product.

Skin Doctors Day Ampoules (Gold)

10% concentrated dose of pure Vitamin C

These are infused with “potent vitamin C” (ascorbic acid) which some may be aware is a powerful antioxidant.  Antioxidants fight free radicals which are formed by the body when food is broken down to form energy.  Antioxidants are great at helping fight the signs of ageing as they destroy free radicals (free radicals break down collagen resulting in a loss of elasticity and wrinkle formation) so it makes sense to incorporate them into this sort of product to stimulate skin regeneration and help give the skin a more youthful appearance.  Studies have shown that this fabulous vitamin may also be able to help in the prevention and treatment of UV damage.  Vitamin C is also vital for collagen.  As we age our bodies produce less collagen so a boost can really make a significant difference to the skins appearance making it look smoother and much more supple.

The combination of ingredients in these ampoules make the skin look brighter, firmer, plumper, wrinkles look less defined and the skin feel softer and smoother.

Skin Doctors Night Ampoules (Blue)

15% dose of pure Vitamin A

These are infused with “potent vitamin A” (Retinol) another antioxidant that packs a punch.  Numerous tests have been carried out and show this to be effective at restoring an even skin tone, improving the appearance of the skin making it look smoother, younger and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.  This is a “must use” for anyone age 30 or over.  As retinol is photosensitive (it reacts in sunlight) it is used in products targeted for use at night, so basically whilst you sleep this super antioxidant works to help give the skin a more youthful appearance including a gorgeously healthy glow.  This product also contains Microsponge® slow-release technology to enhance its stability and deliver the active ingredient efficiently to minimise irritation.

My Findings

  My deeper wrinkles were still there when I finished using the whole sample but who knows with continued use what might have happened.  There was a marked difference in my skins appearance brighter, plumper, with a healthy glow, small creases were not so obvious and I had numerous complements about how fabulous my skin looked.

I can wholeheartedly say that these products performed a miracle on my skin.  I normally have a tendency to talk a lot but I could barely keep my mouth shut about this telling friends and relatives and even shop assistants how amazing these products are.

Would The Results Be The Same If Just The Day Or Night Time Ampoules Were Used?

I appreciate that the cost might put some readers off but in comparison to some products these are not expensive especially when you weigh up the results.  After you’re trying these any concerns will simply disappear as you see the results literally before your very eyes in a short space of time.

I would say that these products could be used individually but for faster and better results I would personally advise using both (from my own experience).  The product really worked well when both day and night time samples were used and each works slightly differently too which backs up the argument for using both day and night ampoules.

Having been so impressed I asked if I could share this amazing product with one exceptionally lucky reader.  Seriously, you all want this!!!

  1. My main skin concern is dryness especially my face.

    1. This is quite a common concern especially now it’s cold with all the central heating. A combination of great skincare, water and healthy eating can help 🙂

  2. I’m concerned about the bags under my eyes from not sleeping very well and also small patches of dry skin.

  3. I have very dry skin unfortunately!

    1. Look into eating good fats and increasing your water intake as you might find that this helps.

  4. These look and sound great! My main concerns are dry cheeks and hormonal breakouts. I’ve been wanting to incorporate Vitamin C into my skincare routine.

    1. This is a great way for you to do that daily.

  5. since hitting 40, i am so concerned about aging, i try my best to take care of myself x

    1. I would give it a try. This companies products are always great and I’ve never had any problems.

  10. I have very sensitive skin, so it can get blotchy and patchy at times

    1. I’m not sure the product would help with this not having had it myself. It really does give the skin a more youthful glow.

  11. I always have dry skin no matter what moisturiser I use!

  12. Getting older – wrinkles and dry skin so using a serum can only be of benefit

  13. When it comes to my skin, dry and ageing are my main concerns….

  14. I have dry and dehydrated skin with the start of fine lines (I’m now 31 so this is a major concern). I often feel my skin isn’t very bright or radiant either. But overall, I try and look after it as best as I can.

  15. My main skin concern is sun damage – I wish I knew then what I know now!

    1. If only this was highlighted to us all when we were younger.

  16. Fine lines around my eyes and dull looking skin
